TV chef Rosemary Shrager , 70, admits she went under the knife to get eyelid lift

Rosemary Shrager has revealed that she finally decided to take action after she was unable to open her eyes in the morning

The legendary TV chef took drastic action after her eyelids have ‘dropped’ throughout the years, making it difficult for her to open her eyes in the mornings.The much-loved star's droopy and weepy eyes caused such discomfort she was no longer able to wear mascara.

Lifting the lid on her decision to finally undergo surgery, Rosemary told Daily Mail it was down to medical purposes rather than vanity.“The time had come where I knew this was a necessity, from a medical perspective — not vanity,” Rosemary admitted. “I knew my eyes would only get worse.”

The upper eyelid surgery was carried out under local anesthetic, without a hospital stay.Rosemary was looked after by Amir Nakhdjevani, a cosmetic surgeon at Bella Vou clinic in Tunbridge Wells, Kent – and she has a new lease of life since going under the knife.

“I'm over the moon with the results — I feel like a different person,” the TV chef admitted.“My whole face seems alive. I've been complimented on how fresh I look, and I cannot wait to wear mascara again.'“I might be 70, but that doesn't mean I'm ready to stop; I want to keep working and push myself until 80 at least.”

It comes as the much-loved chef has experienced years of endless eye issues.Back in 2017, Rosemary was completely floored when doctors told her she’s at risk of going blind.The TV cook mentioned to medics at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London that her father suffered from glaucoma while accompanying her ex to his eye appointment.

As it turns out, she was told there and then that one day, she runs the risk of losing her eyesight.Doctors did an on-the-spot test and found Rosemary could develop the hereditary and irreversible condition which causes damage to the optic nerve.Glaucoma can cause partial sight loss and, in rare cases, total blindness. Early detection and treatment is vital for a patient’s prospects.

The news shook Rosemary like a thunderbolt and at the time, she admitted to being ‘really scared’ of going blind.She said: “My father John had glaucoma and had to take drops three times a day.“His mother Aggie was diagnosed too late and went blind.“I had two great aunts, Maud and Brenda, who also went blind from it. I didn’t realise for a long time that it’s often hereditary.”

Rosemary went on: “Taste and smell are important, of course. I make my living as a cook. And I’d hate to go deaf. But going blind would be the worst. I wouldn’t be able to work. It would devastate my life. The thought scares me, really scares me.” Read more: Mirror Celeb »
