Eyelid Surgery for men continues to increase in popularity, eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is one of the most sought-after cosmetic procedures among men. Eyelid surgery can refresh the appearance of tired eyes without the need for significant downtime. Blepharoplasty is highly versatile, helping with conditions such as baggy eyes, wrinkled eyelids, dark circles, puffy eyelids, or drooping upper eyelids. Let’s explore how Eyelid Surgery for Men, whether on its own or combined with other highly popular facial and body plastic surgery procedures, can help you.
What is Eyelid Surgery?
Eyelid surgery is a plastic surgery procedure that uses tiny incisions to restructure and remove fat, remove excess skin, and tighten tissues to create an enhanced appearance that allows patients to look younger and more alert. Both the lower and upper eyelids can be treated given your unique concerns and goals, and the incisions are well-concealed in the natural folds and creases of the eye.
Blepharoplasty is a relatively quick procedure, taking less than an hour in some cases, resulting in long-lasting facial rejuvenation.
Blepharoplasty for Men
Why are men increasingly interested in eyelid surgery? Because of the subtle but noticeable benefits of the procedure. Many patients report that after undergoing blepharoplasty with Dr. Azouz people will know that they look “better” but cannot necessarily able to pinpoint how. Blepharoplasty is a procedure known for its dramatic yet natural-appearing results.
Men are interested in blepharoplasty because they can:
- Look more awake, alert, or even intelligent
- Look younger and more masculine
- Address upper eyelid sagging that could be blurring their vision
- Enjoy enhanced self-confidence both at home and at work
Male blepharoplasty involves specific techniques to retain the masculine features of the eyes and eye area to ensure the most natural-looking results.
Good Candidates for Male Eyelid Surgery
The best candidates for this and any other plastic surgery are those who have specific issues they want to be addressed, whether just in the eyes or also elsewhere throughout the face or body. Blepharoplasty candidates are generally healthy men who do not have underlying health conditions that would make them ineligible for surgery.
Dr. Azouz may instruct patients to avoid or adjust certain medications and supplements that may increase the risk of bleeding. Patients should avoid smoking for 6 weeks before and after the surgery or quit smoking altogether to ensure healthy healing.
Specific issues that would make someone a good candidate for blepharoplasty include:
- Drooping eyes
- Pockets of fat under the eyes
- Asymmetry of eyelids
Recovery From Eyelid Surgery
It usually takes most patients between a week to a week and a half before bruising and swelling resolve. That being said Dr. Azouz uses a variety of surgical and supplemental techniques to minimize bruising and swelling. Swelling and bruising will be present during the first week after the procedure and discomfort can be mitigated with cold compresses or medications.
