Blepharoplasty for Men

In today’s world, men of all ages are paying more attention to their appearance. Sagging eyelids caused by aging can make you look tired or unapproachable, affecting your confidence and self-esteem. But there’s good news – with eyelid surgery, you can achieve a refreshed and youthful look that can boost your confidence and enhance your overall appearance.

With advanced techniques, the procedure is now more precise and produces better results than ever before. Plus, with the stigma surrounding cosmetic procedures decreasing, more men of all ages are comfortable discussing their desire for surgery. As well, constant pressure on the eyes, sometimes from ptosis, can also cause eyelid fatigue! So, if you’re looking to improve your appearance and regain your confidence, eyelid surgery could be the solution you’ve been searching for.

Upper Eyelid Surgery

This eyelid rejuvenation procedure is not just for women; it is also suitable for men who desire to achieve a more youthful, refreshed look.

Blepharoplasty, commonly known as eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the appearance of the upper eyelids by removing excess eyelid skin and fatty tissue.

Male eyelid surgery can provide a comprehensive rejuvenation of the eyes by removing sagging skin and wrinkles from the upper eyelids, creating a more defined upper eyelid crease, and reducing puffiness and dark circles. The goal of cosmetic eyelid surgery is to provide a natural-looking result that enhances the overall appearance of the eyes without appearing overdone.

The Eyelid Surgery Procedure

During a blepharoplasty procedure, the patient will be given local anesthesia to numb the area and ensure their comfort during the surgery. Once the anesthesia has taken effect, the surgeon will make precise incisions along the natural creases of the eyelids to minimize any visible scarring.

Through these incisions, they will remove any excess skin and fatty tissue, as well as any muscle tissue that may be contributing to the appearance of sagging or drooping eyelids. The surgeon will then carefully tighten the remaining skin to achieve a smoother and more youthful appearance, and close the incisions with sutures or a medical adhesive. The result is a refreshed and revitalized look. The entire procedure typically takes a few hours to complete, depending on the extent of the surgery and whether additional procedures are being performed at the same time.

Male Blepharoplasty – The Recovery Process

Following a blepharoplasty, patients are typically discharged within an hour of the surgery, although the duration may be slightly longer if additional procedures are performed alongside it. The eyes and surrounding areas may experience some swelling and bruising for up to a week after the procedure. Eye drops and gels will be prescribed to keep the eyes moist and comfortable.

Patients should abstain for strenuous physical activity at least one week after the procedure. During this time, patients may experience some eye fatigue while reading or watching television. This is normal. For an upper lid blepharoplasty, stitches are usually removed around 5 to 7 days post-surgery.

However, if an incision is made under the lashes, self-dissolving sutures may be placed, which typically dissolve and fall out within a week. The overall healing process for a blepharoplasty is gradual, with recovery usually taking anywhere between 10 to 14 days.
