Renee Zellweger recently appeared on the red carpet for the Elle magazine 21st annual Women in Hollywood Awards. She showed off her drastically changed look with wider eyes, a smooth and wrinkle-free face, and her trademark cheeks slimmed down. Dr. Dale Abadir reveals what procedures she believes Renee had done to give her this new look.
“I have been rejuvenating eyelids with surgery for many years, a procedure called blepharoplasty. Excess skin and fat are carefully removed to give a more youthful appearance.
Prior to doing this, I ask the patient if they want to look as they did when they were younger and, if so, ask for old photos to see how the eyelids looked in their youth. If the patient always had somewhat full or moderately heavy lids, and were happy with this, and did not want to look different from their appearance when young, I am more conservative in the removal of tissue to recreate this look. Some will say they never liked the fuller lids they always had and want to have all excess fat and skin removed to give a more open eye effect.
Renee Zellweger obviously had blepharoplasty performed to reduce the heavy lids she had when younger. It certainly resulted in a considerable change to her appearance. Perhaps she felt that the heavy lids and full cheeks were appealing in a young actress but may not be appropriate when seeking more mature roles.
She is an exceptionally talented actress and I’m sure will do well!”
