Why I Don't Regret Getting Eyelid Surgery
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Broadcaster Julie Chen recently admitted she got eyelid surgery when she was 25, after a news director told her she wouldn't get ahead without it. An agent reaffirmed that belief. I had blepharoplasty, too, but before I entered the broadcast industry. It was like a graduation gift, one my parents supported financially and otherwise. The size of my eyes did not significantly change. After all, the goal was to make the shift look natural. But gone was the heavily-hooded look at the hands of a plastic surgeon in Korea's famous district of Apgujeong, where today, many across Asia still travel for a variety of procedures. My doctor remarked he removed a good bit of fat that had made it harder for me to literally open my eyes -- so much so I had been lifting my chin for the past 18 years. But like Chen, I wonder: Had I not gone under the knife, would I be where I am today? (Left: Pre-surgery, middle school. Right: Smiling now) Hard to say. I never thought about being an on-air repor ...
