  • Jackie Chan has been kicking butt since the 1970′s, in his native Hong Kong and then in the United States. But before he became a martial arts hero, it looks like Jackie Chan might have gone under the knife.

    Jackie Chan, Eyelid Surgery

    Although there aren’t a lot of pictures of a young Jackie Chan, one that has been floating about the Internet shows a Jackie with slightly different eyelids than he has now, a possible indication that there has been a blepharoplasty in 54-year old Jackie’s past.

    According to Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, California, says, “It is possible that Jackie Chan had surgery.  In his more recent photos it appears that his upper eyelids are more visible, if he did have surgery it was a conservative procedure that still retains his ethnicity.”

    While Dr. Nassif remains unsure as to whether or not Jackie had a blepharoplasty, Plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden seems more certain.

    Dr. Walden tells Make Me Heal, “If the before picture is actually confirmed as a young Jackie Chan, which I think it is given his jaw asymmetry in both the before and after shots, then he clearly has had a blepharoplasty (eyelid lift).”

    “If the surgery was indeed done in the 70s it is possible that his surgeon was trying to create a more Westernized look for the young Jackie Chan who would soon find fame in the U.S.  Today, more subtle methods of double eyelid surgery are employed in order to preserve the ethnicity of the naturally beautiful Asian eyelid.”

    Dr. Walden also goes on to describe double eyelid surgery and how the procedure is performed, “The difference between Asian and Caucasian eyelids is in the position of the eyelid fold; Asians who do have a crease above their eye have very different looking eyelids than Caucasians. The Asian eyelid typically starts at the crease very close to the eyelashes. As the crease gets further away from the nose, it gets larger and larger until the midpoint of the pupil, at which point the fold runs parallel to the eyelash origin.”

    “In Asians who request a certain type of blepharoplasty called double eyelid surgery, not only is skin trimmed from the upper lids, but detailed work is done to create a more defined palpebral crease.  The creation of this crease gives the appearance of an upper lid sulcus, or crevice, that gives contour to the upper lid.”

    Whether on not Jackie underwent double eyelid surgery in his youth, it certainly was subtle and allowed him to become an international success without looking scary.

      Not sure why you have uncertainty about this. Any fan will tell you Jackie had eyelid surgery in the early 1970′s at the instigation of Lo Wei, the director for whom he was working at the time. If you look at Shaolin Wooden Men you will see the last movie he made before the surgery.

      I’m pretty sure he had breast implants too.

      Yes, that’s a challenge! Bring it on! :-)

      Jackie looks as young as he was in his early age. If doctors are saying that he has had eyelid surgery then take it for granted. But for me its extremely hard to identify any kind of surgery done on his eyes.

      The book ‘Jackie Chan’ by J. Poolos states that Jackie Chan had plastic surgery. Film director Lo Wei paid for Jackie Chan’s eyes to be widened and for him to be made to appear more like a westerner.

      Lucy Liu had plastic surgery.

      As a high school senior in 1986.

      Her eyes are much bigger now. What did she do? Surgery? Eyelid tape? Eyelid glue?

      The breast implants. WARNING: Bare breasts.

      WOMAN writes:

      “Even Lucy Liu had implants – she went with a very small size.

      See the difference :

      BEFORE:

      and after: www .celebritymoviearchive. com/tour/movie. php/6597

      even when she lays down her implants stay very round and high (normal tissue would flatten and fall apart)”

      Conclusion: The actress Lucy Liu is not representative of what a natural East Asian woman can look like.

      Even Gong Li has fake breasts.
