Actress Amanda Bynes arrives at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards at Universal Studios’ Gibson Amphitheatre on June 5, 2011 in Universal City, California.
Amanda Bynes has addressed her new look and revealed that she had plastic surgery.
In a TikTok video posted Monday, the 37-year-old “Hairspray” actress disclosed that she underwent a blepharoplasty — a surgical procedure that removes excess skin from the eyelids.
Addressing the speculations surrounding her altered appearance, Bynes candidly revealed in the video, “I was never open about this before, but I actually had blepharoplasty surgery on the skinfolds and the corner of my eyes. So, I don’t have those skinfolds anymore.”
The “Amanda Show” alum said she has no regrets about going through with the cosmetic surgery, noting that it boosted her self-esteem.
Expressing her satisfaction with the outcome, Bynes stated, “It was one of the best things I could’ve ever done for my self-confidence, and it made me feel a lot better in my skin, so I just wanted to post about that just to clear up that rumor as to why I have a new look.”
“I feel a lot better now about myself, and I’m so glad I had the blepharoplasty surgery. It was one of the greatest things I could’ve ever done,” Bynes said in the clip, which was obtained and shared by Page Six.
Her revelation came as Bynes returns to the spotlight after her lengthy conservatorship ended last March.
Speaking through her lawyer, David A. Esquibias, Bynes conveyed her dedication to her well-being in a statement to People at the time, saying, “In the last several years, I have been working hard to improve my health so that I can live and work independently, and I will continue to prioritize my well-being in this next chapter.”
Bynes recently launched a podcast on Spotify titled “Amanda Bynes & Paul Sieminski: The Podcast.” The debut episode centered on an interview with Los Angeles tattoo artist Dahlia Moth.
Bynes and her co-host are set to discuss a wide array of topics, including fashion, artistry, music, and more, on their podcast, according to its synopsis.
She was also set to attend a reunion with her former “All That” co-stars Kel Mitchell, Danny Tamberelli, and Lori Beth Denberg at ’90s Con at the Connecticut Convention Center in March, before an undisclosed health issue forced her to miss the event.
