Jane Fonda has been one of the most successful stars in Hollywood. She’s starred in a number of films, won two Academy Awards and appeared on Broadway for years. She’s also become a fitness guru and activist.
In her new documentary, Jane Fonda: In Five Acts, director Susan Lacy captures the elusive show biz icon’s mercurial life, from her early days with her father, Henry (Roger Vadim), to her relationship with Robert Redford, to her rise as an activist, health guru and entrepreneur. The film reveals Fonda’s inner turmoil about her self-image and body.
She admits she has had plastic surgery in order to look “better” and feel more confident. But she says it’s not something she’s proud of, and it’s a decision she regrets.
Fonda has had a variety of procedures in her life, including eyelid surgeries, but she says she’s not satisfied with the results. She doesn’t want a “distorted” appearance and wants her face to be healthy and youthful.
A blepharoplasty is a type of cosmetic procedure that removes fat and tightens the skin around the eyes, according to aesthetic and anti-ageing specialist Dr Sarah Tonks. This can help a patient appear more alert, less tired and more youthful. It costs PS5,000 ($7,650).
Another aging-fighting facial procedure is the neck lift. This reduces the appearance of bands on the neck and deep lines, like crow’s feet, which can make a person look older. This is typically done for women who are unhappy with the shape of their necks, but it can also be done to treat asymmetry in the face.
This is a procedure that can be performed at any age. It can be a helpful way for older patients to appear younger and healthier, especially if they haven’t had the same amount of time to work on their appearance as younger people.
In the past, Fonda said she’s never been interested in having plastic surgery, but she decided to go through with it after she saw herself in a store window and realized she was starting to have a distorted appearance. She subsequently had a neck lift, eyelid surgery and a chin augmentation.
Although Fonda isn’t a fan of the surgery, she says it has given her some extra time to do the things that she loves. She also says that she’s had a better quality of life and has been able to enjoy her 82nd birthday, which she celebrated with an appearance on TODAY.
