Kenny Rogers underwent his first plastic surgery in 1990 and a second one in 1997 to help his eyes look younger and remove bags under his eyes. The eyelid lift resulted in his appearance taking a drastic change from the brand that his fans were used to.
Rogers' first surgery tightened his facial skin and eliminated the bags, but fans of the country singer lambasted him for undergoing corrective procedures and losing his charm in the process. His surgery ushered in many negative reviews, resulting in his contemplation of going for a second restorative surgery. He admitted to being unhappy with the surgery and went under the knife again in 1997 to look closer in age to his wife, Wanda, who is 28 years his junior.
