Amanda Bynes has revealed she has "never been open before" about having had surgery on her eyes. 

The 'She's The Man' actress has been the centre of speculation she had had cosmetic surgery after her face appeared different in posts online. 

She said she had undergone a blepharoplasty, a procedure to remove excess eyelid skin. 

"I was never open about this before, but I actually had blepharoplasty surgery on the skinfolds and the corner of my eyes. So, I don't have those skinfolds anymore," she wrote on Instagram. 

"It was one of the best things I could’ve ever done for my self-confidence, and it made me feel a lot better in my skin, so I just wanted to post about that just to clear up that rumor as to why I have a new look," Bynes said.  

"I feel a lot better now about myself, and I'm so glad I had the blepharoplasty surgery. It was one of the greatest things I could've ever done." 

In June this year, the Hairspray actress was detained by police and taken into custody for a mental health evaluation to determine if she needed further treatment. 

At the time, law enforcement sources told TMZ that the authorities decided Amanda needed to be placed on a mandatory psychiatric hold, meaning she could be held for up to 72 hours. 

The former Nickelodeon star was previously placed on a psychiatric hold in March after she was reportedly found roaming the LA streets naked. She flagged a car down and told the driver she was "coming down from a psychotic episode" and called the emergency services herself.
