Why Men Can Benefit From Eyelid Surgery in Your 20s, 30s, and 40s

Because you start losing natural tightening proteins like collagen and elastin as early as age 20, there’s a real likelihood that you can benefit from some kind of facial rejuvenation procedure as early as your 20s or 30s. And you wouldn’t be alone, with increasingly more people seeking surgery like facelifts and blepharoplasty to help take years off their aging appearance.  Facial anatomy is genetic and some patients can have sad or tired appearing eyes which can cause them to look older than their age.

Reasons why men seek Eyelid Surgery

Here are a few reasons why men and women throughout Dallas-Fort Worth are seeking eyelid surgery with Dallas board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Azouz.

The Eyes Age Quickly, and Often Show the First Signs of Aging

With delicate skin surrounding your eye area as well as composing your eyelids, the signs of aging such as skin laxity and wrinkles commonly appear to your eyes before other facial features. So, while other facial rejuvenation procedures may be held off until your 50s or 60s, eyelid surgery can help correct the early signs of aging as soon as they appear.

An Eye Bigger Than the Other

Most people have one eye that appears bigger than the other.  This is usually genetic and can be related to more sagging skin and wrinkles on one side of the face as compared to the other.  Boney anatomy is not generally altered with eyelid surgery but loose skin can be tightened to provide better symmetry. 

Eyes Convey A Wealth of Expressions

It can be argued that the eyes are the most important focal point of a person’s face, and the appearance of them can make a person look alert, youthful, and attractive. As the skin begins to get lax and start sagging, it can make someone look older than they actually are, or give others the impression that they’re not being paid attention to. It can also interfere with your resting demeanor, as puffy bags or dark circles under your eyes or loose skin above them may cause you to look tired or bored when you’re not.

By correcting the early signs of aging with personalized eyelid surgery, you can prevent these and other negative side effects that occur due to the prominent nature of the eyes and surrounding skin.

Results From Blepharoplasty are Long-Lasting

e-performed to enhance your appearance. Typically, results of eyelid surgery last over 10-20 years, taking many years off your appearance for the prime of your life. Keep in mind that every surgery is different for different people, so your individual results may vary. Taking good care of your eyes with high-quality or prescription skincare products and protecting your skin from UV light are ways to potentially lengthen the appearance of your results.

Eyelid Surgery Recovery is Not Hard

As a not very painful procedure, blepharoplasty recovery is not as uncomfortable or long as other plastic surgery procedures. When it’s able to be performed under local anesthesia with sedation, the recovery time is even shorter, with people going back to work just a few days after the surgery. Dr. Azouz utilizes special medications to minimize bruising and swelling.  Eyelid surgery patients report very little pain even immediately after their procedure, and any discomfort can often be easily managed with over-the-counter painkillers.

Blepharoplasty Dallas: 3 Types of Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty is an efficient solution for getting a more youthful and rested appearance for loose skin in the eye area.

Types of Eyelid Surgery

There are three types of Blepharoplasty surgery that help patients to restore and provide a fresher eye look.

  • Upper Eyelid Surgery
  • Lower Eyelid Surgery
  • Double Eyelid Surgery

Upper Eyelid Surgery: 

The excess skin generated due to the normal aging process can disturb the eye’s vision and look. Excess eyelid skin and cause a patient to look tired and can even inhibit vision by blocking light from reaching the eye. Getting an Upper Blepharoplasty provides aesthetic and functional benefits to the eye, including: 

  • Removal of excess skin along the eye upper lid
  • Removal of fat bulges over the eye
  • Tightening of the upper lid skin. 

After an upper eyelid lift, you will have an open eye appearance, a refreshed look, and an expanded line of sight for improved vision.

Lower Eyelid Surgery:

Wrinkles and bags formed in the lower lid affect self-esteem. With Lower Eyelid Surgery, you can boost your self-confidence and obtain other benefits, such as:

  • Removal of fat deposits that creates a puffy or tired eye’s look. 
  • Reposition of fat to restore a lower eyelid hollowing.
  • Diminish the number of fine lines seen around the outer corners and lower eyelids.

After lower eyelid surgery,  the tired and aged look of your face will have to diminish, and you will have a natural, younger, and well-rested appearance.

Double Eyelid Surgery:

Depending on the condition of your eye area, it might be necessary to have double eyelid surgery to achieve your aesthetic goals and get more dramatic results. An eyelid plastic surgeon will perform a combined surgery of the upper and the lower lid in this particular case. This process has multiple benefits for the patient, including:

  • A Facial Younger Appearance
  • Enhanced Eye Shape
  • Removal of fat deposit
  • Tighten eye skin
  • Diminishing wrinkles
  • Removal of Dark Circles
  • One Recovery Process

Combination Plastic Surgery: Face, Breast, and Body

What cosmetic procedures can be combined and why would that be beneficial?

Combining plastic surgery procedures is extremely popular and involves a plastic surgeon performing multiple plastic or cosmetic surgeries in one day.  This is a great option for patients who have many different concerns they would like to address. Dr. David Azouz is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon in Dallas, TX who performs many combination procedures to help his patients reach their goals in a safe, efficient, and effective manner. Dr. Azouz is highly experienced and offers patients the benefits of a natural-appearing look with minimal scarring from his combination procedures. The most well-known combination procedure is the mommy makeover, but there are many procedures that can be combined. Facelifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and breast surgeries are all popular surgeries that can be done together.

Benefits of Combination Plastic Surgeries

There are many different benefits that come from performing two or more surgeries simultaneously. Mainly, it cuts down on the need for multiple surgery days which allows a patient one recovery. Additionally, combining procedures often cuts down on the cost of surgery and anesthesia.

Candidates for Combination Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery

The best candidates for combination surgery:

  • Require moderate improvement of the areas to be treated
  • Are in good overall health
  • Are non-smokers
  • Have realistic expectations

Dr. Azouz recommends that patients with areas that require significant skin and soft tissue resection stage their procedures rather than have them done on the same day.  The right combination of procedures can achieve the results a patient desires and this is best achieved through expressing your goals with Dr. Azouz.  Dr. Azouz is committed to performing plastic and cosmetic surgery as safely and efficiently as possible.

Combining Plastic Surgery with other non-plastic surgery procedures

Patients often desire to combine cosmetic and plastic surgery operations with other types of surgery including:

  • Hysterectomy
  • Removal of gallbladder
  • Functional rhinoplasty
  • Hernia repair

Dr. Azouz is able to coordinate performing cosmetic surgery with other noncosmetic surgeries with a variety of different surgeons.  Often Dr. Azouz will work with an OBGYN to perform a hysterectomy and tummy tuck together.  Hernia repairs are often performed at the same time as a panniculectomy (tummy tuck).

Recovery Time

One of the main questions Dr. Azouz is asked during his consultations with patients is how much recovery time they will need for their procedure. If a patient has multiple concerns and requires multiple procedures, this adds to time spent recovering from surgery. With a combination procedure, you get one recovery time.  A mommy makeover may involve a drain-less abdominoplasty or mini-tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast augmentation in the same day.   Men often desire liposuction of the abdomen to be done concurrently with liposuction and removal of gynecomastia of the chest.  The recovery time for each procedure is about four to six weeks until a patient can return to heavy exercise. Instead of having to heal for four to six weeks to or three different times, patients can get surgeries done on the same day so that they only go through one recovery.

How soon can you have cosmetic surgery after massive weight loss surgery (gastric bypass)?

Gastric bypass induces weight loss by both restrictive and absorptive methods.   This means that a patient will eat less food and less food will be absorbed through the patient’s digestive tract.  Patients will generally have their weight fluctuate for six months after surgery.  Dr. Azouz typically recommends having a stable weight for six months prior to surgery as well.  Patients who have had bariatric surgery (gastric sleeve or bypass) are typically excellent candidates for post-bariatric body contouring.  Combination procedures are often possible and include a variety of cosmetic surgeries of the body, breast, and face.

Possible combination surgery after bariatric procedures include:

Mommy makeover

Body lift with liposuction

Tummy tuck with liposuction

Facelift with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)

Breast lift with breast augmentation

Liposuction and removal of gynecomastia

Cost and Recovery

Along with the cut down on recovery time, combination procedures also cut down the cost. The cost of each individual procedure varies greatly. You have to add in the surgical facility, anesthesia, and medical devices to the total cost. By getting multiple procedures done in one surgery, this cuts down on the time spent in the operating room and anesthesia costs being repeated. Dr. Azouz will give you an estimated cost of your unique combination procedure during your in-person consultation.

Popular Combination Plastic Surgeries

To help his patients save on recovery time and cost, Dr. Azouz performs many of his procedures in combination with others. Due to the drain-less technique accompanying his procedures, patients can enjoy a less complex healing period. One of his most popular procedures is the Drainless abdominoplasty. Other popular combination procedures are:

  • Mommy Makeover (breast and abdomen)
  • Liposuction and Removal of gynecomastia
  • Liposuction and Abdominoplasty
  • Breast Lift and Reduction
  • Rhinoplasty and Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)
  • Facelift and Eyelid surgery
  • Mini Abdominoplasty and liposuction
  • Tummy tuck and labiaplasty

Eyelid Surgery: Dallas Best Treatment for Saggy Eyelids-Dermatochalasis

If you’ve begun to notice the signs of aging, it’s likely that you’ve noticed loose skin around the eyes. Loose skin around the eyes is largely due to genetic causes.  Over time, the eyelids are one of the first places to sag and lose firmness.  This can make you look tired, sad, or unhappy. In some cases, loose skin can also affect vision. Loose skin around the eye is called dermatochalasis, and upper and lower lid blepharoplasty procedures are effective plastic surgery solutions.

What is Dermatochalasis?

Dermatochalasis refers to loose skin around the eyelids.  This can cause a “baggy” appearance to the lower eyelid and a “hooded” appearance to the upper eyelid.  In the upper eyelid, the loose skin can hang down into the visual field, causing less light to reach the pupil.  This can make the vision poor at night or in other low light situations. Both loose skin around the eyelid or a droopy eyelid (part of a condition called ptosis), can also affect the ability to perform tasks like driving or reading.

What is the difference between Ptosis and Dermatochalasis?

Ptosis is caused by paralysis or muscle weakness rather than excessive skin.  Ptosis can present at birth known as “congenital ptosis”, and can be acquired meaning it is caused by trauma.  Some patients have ptosis from repeated stretch injury due to wearing hard contact lenses, from cataract surgery where the eye is propped open or from tumors around the orbit. Ptosis can also be the result of an injury to the bones or soft tissues around the eye.

Eyelid Surgery in Dallas

Drooping eyelids will usually need surgery in the form of blepharoplasty, which removes excess skin, muscle, and fat. Dr. Azouz can also tighten the levator muscles for additional lift and repositioning.  Eyelid surgery can offer a more cosmetic and younger appearance.  In patients where the eyelid is blocking light from reaching the eye, it can also improve your vision.  Dr. Azouz can also recreate the fold of the eyelid so that it is easier to apply makeup.

Cost of Eyelid Surgery

The cost of eyelid surgery is variable and very dependent on the individual patient.  Financing options are available.  Insurance does not usually cover eye-lid surgery and almost never covers primary lower lid surgery.  Dr. Azouz will assess the individual patients’ needs and can provide a quote for the cost of eyelid surgery after a history and physical examination are performed.  Patients usually can improve the cost of their plastic surgery procedures by combining the surgery with cosmetic face and body procedures such as liposuction, facelift, breast augmentation, and gynecomastia surgery.

Final Results of Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Azouz will provide recommendations on eye drops and icing to keep the eyes moisturized and free of irritation after eyelid surgery. It’s important to avoid rubbing or itching your eyes while they recover. After a full recovery, patients enjoy a more youthful and refreshed look without sagging or excess skin. In the case of corrected dermatochalasis or ptosis many patients enjoy the improvement to the vision after the swelling subsides and the final results emerge.

Consider Eyelid Surgery to Achieve a More Youthful Appearance

Many people consider having blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, in order to remove and tighten up their excess eyelid skin. Eyelid surgery helps patients achieve a more youthful, alert appearance. Eyelid surgery can also improve your vision by allowing more light to reach the eye as loose skin can act as a shade over the eye

Blepharoplasty routinely removes excess fat, skin, and muscle from the lower and upper eyelids. Some people only require skin to be removed during eyelid surgery but this is rare. You may also need to have the surgery done on both lower and upper eyelids. Dr. Azouz performs blepharoplasty at various facilities in Dallas and Plano, providing patients with a youthful appearance while keeping the eyelids functional.

What is Cosmetic Blepharoplasty?

This procedure is not a medical necessity and is done for cosmetic purposes only. As we age, our upper and lower eyelids can begin to droop or become baggy. If this occurs, your eyebrows may even sag or droop down. The skin of the eyelid stretches, the muscles weaken, and fat pockets can start to appear more prominent.

These conditions can detract from the beauty of the eyes and face. They can also cause a person to look older than they actually are. A board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. David Azouz can perform a blepharoplasty to improve the appearance of the eyes, which helps to improve the overall look and youthfulness of the face.

When is Eyelid Surgery Necessary?

A functional blepharoplasty occurs when there is a medical necessity for it. One of the most common reasons why this surgery may be necessary is when loose skin drooping down low enough that it severely impairs vision. This can cause problems with driving and other daily tasks.

Other conditions that require functional blepharoplasty include:

  • Irritation that occurs from eyelashes rubbing the eye
  • Discomfort or pain in the forehead from overworked muscles that severely and constantly strain to lift up the sagging eyelid skin with severe headaches

Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. David Azouz has decades of experience performing this type of procedure and routinely provides his patients with world-class results.

Am I a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

If you are experiencing sagging or drooping skin around your eyes, you may consider eyelid surgery. Remember, this problem is usually normal with aging and is often due to genetics. Sagging and puffy skin may also be exaggerated if you have other medical issues that irritate your eyes, such as edema or allergies.

Dr. Azouz offers a comprehensive exam of the face and eyes and can guide patients as to what eyelid surgery is best for them. Many patients elect to combine eyelid surgery with a facelift, neck lift or liposuction of the neck.  Some patients elect to combine eyelid surgery with breast augmentation, breast lift, gynecomastia or liposuction surgery.

Blepharoplasty: Common Myths and Facts

Even though there are several non-invasive procedures today that help addresses different signs of aging, there are many issues that still require surgical correction for the best results. Cosmetic eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is one such surgical procedure that does not have an effective non-surgical alternative. There are two kinds of blepharoplasty procedures– one for the upper and lower eyelid, respectively. If you’re considering a procedure to rejuvenate your eyes with blepharoplasty, here are some interesting myths and facts about eyelid surgery that you may not know.

About Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid scars are some of the most concealed scars in plastic surgery: Although it’s true that certain surgeries can produce visible scarring, eyelid surgery can easily conceal any incisions within the natural folds of the eyes. For upper eyelid surgery, the scar is concealed within the crease. For lower eyelid surgery, incisions can be made inside the lower eyelid or hidden below the lash line. Using these techniques, most patients find little to no visible scarring after surgery.

You can correct dark circles: Some of the most common cosmetic issues around the eyes are dark circles and eye bags. There can be many reasons that these problems can form; it could be temporary due to lack of sleep, while long term dark circles are caused typically by thinning skin or loss of volume due to aging. These concerns can respond to non-surgical treatments like laser techniques, dermal fillers, and skincare. Fat grafting is an evolving more permanent option to improve the tear trough and lower eyelid.  You should be sure to discuss your goals with Dr. Azouz during a consultation.

Blepharoplasty surgery (eyelid surgery) can still be performed in those with dry eyes: It’s important to choose an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in facial cosmetic surgery since removing too much skin can cause chronic dry eyes after recovery. You can expect some dryness during your recovery, however, because of irritation. This can be mitigated with eyedrops.

Facts About Eyelid Surgery

It has cosmetic and medical benefits: Eyelid surgery can help eliminate sagging skin and remove excessive skin and fat from the area while also tightening the skin. In addition to these cosmetic enhancements, it can also improve your peripheral vision when it removes overhanging skin. Removing excess eyelid skin can also allow more light into the eye, which can improve vision. This is why it’s medically recommended for people whose vision is affected by droopy eyelids.

It’s the second most popular facial cosmetic procedure: After rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery is the next most popular surgery in the U.S. This is believed to be increasing at almost 10 percent each year.

Lower and upper eyelid surgery can be performed together: Even though not everyone will require correction on both the lower and upper eyelids, they can be performed together within the same surgical procedure. This reduces the surgical session’s time as well as your recovery period.

Eyelid surgery isn’t just for women: While it’s true that a large percentage of women opt for eyelid surgery, men seeking facial rejuvenation also opt for the procedure in thousands each year.

Your results will continue to improve: You will be able to see your results immediately after surgery, but in most cases, your final results will continue to refine over the course of a year to eighteen months. This happens because it takes time for the surrounding tissue, skin, and fat to settle in place. Even though it may take around 12-18 months to see your final results, your facial improvement will be long-lasting.

Eyelid surgery can be performed under local anesthesia: Depending on the amount of correction required, your eyelid surgery can take anywhere from 45 minutes to 1.5 hours. It is usually performed under local anesthesia together with sedation. You’ll be able to return home immediately after surgery. Dr. Azouz recommends elevation and icing to reduce swelling.

Tips for Your Successful Eyelid Surgery Recovery

Despite how advanced plastic surgery techniques have become, you can still expect some downtime after your procedure. If you’ve undergone eyelid surgery, some recovery time can seem overwhelming as you wait for your new eye profile. However, it’s important to follow any instructions given by Dr. Azouz to ensure you stay healthy and risk-averse. Here are some tips to ensure your recovery goes smoothly.

Managing Discomfort

Eyelid surgery can be a straightforward plastic surgery that isn’t as invasive as other options, but you can still expect some discomfort or pain as you recover. It’s important to follow instructions for any medications you’re prescribed, as these can reduce both pain and swelling. For additional effectiveness, you can use a cold compress at the treatment area. Dr. Azouz recommends the use of certain eyedrops to keep your eyes lubricated and reduce itchiness, so be sure to use these to manage any discomfort from incisions or dryness. Dr. Azouz will ensure you know which ones to look for in the preparation of your surgery date.

Protecting Your Eyes

As with any incision or surgical site, it’s important to protect it from harmful things. This is especially important after eyelid surgery since complications can be very dangerous to your eyes’ necessary functions. Your eyes may be very sensitive during this time, so wearing dark, protective sunglasses during this time can help to reduce stress on your eyesight. It can also prevent your incisions from being exposed to UV-rays, which can exaggerate scarring. If you opt to wear protective SPF, be sure to get a recommendation from Dr. Azouz on which products will be best. It’s also important to protect your incisions with any bandages or strips that are applied for your recovery. These can effectively prevent infection, so be sure to follow care instructions for your incisions.

What to Avoid

Even though recovery is temporary, it’s still highly important to avoid certain things until your incisions are healed. This includes certain skincare products and cosmetics that can aggravate your incisions or cause infection. It can be tempting to cover up any bruising if you choose to go into public, but you should be sure to check with Dr. Azouz before using any products near your eyes in order to ensure your recovery goes smoothly. You should also avoid wearing your contact lenses for a few weeks after surgery, as these can irritate your eyes further. Even though it can be uncomfortable, it’s also very important to avoid itching, scratching, or rubbing your eyes until you’re recovered.

Your recovery is only one step in your eyelid surgery process, and with effective aftercare, you can enjoy your excellent results without complication.

What You Should Know Before Undergoing Eyelid Surgery

Are you tired of living with droopy skin around your eyes that make you look older than you feel? If so, it may be time to consider eyelid surgery. This procedure can have a drastic effect on the face and improve a person’s self-confidence. If you are considering eyelid surgery for a more youthful appearance, read on for some vital things you need to know before undergoing surgery.

The Procedure Details

Before undergoing any type of procedure, it is important to understand what to expect. When it comes to eyelid surgery, there are two different techniques that can be used. The type of eyelid surgery you require may vary depending on the shape of your eyes and your medical history. These eyelid surgery techniques include:

Upper Eyelid Surgery– is used mainly to improve loss of vision due to drooping skin and the appearance of the eye due to aging and genetics. It focuses on the upper lid, and can create a more rounded, open appearance to the eyes.

Lower Eyelid Surgery– is based around the lower lid and eyes, focusing on removing wrinkles and bags to improve appearance.

Possible Side Effects

As with any form of invasive surgery, there are potential complications and side effects involved with eyelid surgery. The first thing to understand is that results will take time to manifest. It can take up to a year post-op to see the full benefits of an eyelid lift. Other side effects may include scarring, bruising, or swelling of the eye area. Eye itchiness, dryness, and other discomfort can be medicated with eye drops or prescriptions.

What to Look for in a Surgeon

Choosing the right plastic surgeon is one of the most important steps to your plastic surgery journey. Be sure to look for a board certified plastic surgeon who has experience performing eyelid surgery. You may need to schedule multiple consultations before you find the surgeon that is right for you.

Say Goodbye to Droopy, Tired Eyes

“You look tired.” How many times have you heard this, even though you feel great! This could be due to drooping eyelids, excess skin, and wrinkles around your lower eyelids, fatty deposits or puffiness around the eyes, or even sagging skin that creates folds around your eyes. If you want to look as refreshed and great as you feel, you may want to consider an eyelid surgery.

How can eyelid surgery help you?

Eyelid surgery uses small incisions to remove or reposition fat deposits around the eyes. Your surgeon will then tighten the muscles surrounding your eyelids and remove excess skin. To ensure that there are minimal signs of scarring, incisions are placed within the creases of your eyelid or just below the lower lash line. This provides a permanent solution for your drooping upper and lower eyelids.

Not quite sure if this is the right solution for you?

If you aren’t sure if eyelid surgery is right for you, don’t you worry! According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 209,020 eyelid procedures were performed in 2016, making it one of the top five most popular procedures last year. You are not alone in thinking that it can help you with your aesthetic needs.

In some cases, lower eyelid drooping, sagging, or wrinkles can be caused by additional fat or skin. It is important to consult with a certified plastic surgeon to ensure that these aren’t being caused by another medical issue.
