Men

Eyelid Surgery

Overview

For men who take pride in looking energized and active, an eyelid surgery will bring back your strong and youthful look.

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries for men, who have begun to notice signs of aging appear around their eyes, in the form of fine lines, drooping of the upper lid, and puffiness in the lower lid. If you are considering an eyelid surgery for men, you likely want to rejuvenate your appearance without losing your masculine, rugged looks.
Natural is the key, with results that are carefully understated and yet impactful for the rest of the face.
To ensure that your surgery produces the required results, it is imperative to choose a plastic surgeon who frequently performs blepharoplasty on men, as aesthetic standards and aging processes are different for men and women and surgical procedures need to be different as well. With extensive knowledge of facial anatomy, our surgeons will provide you a result that is refreshed and decidedly masculine.

Are You a Candidate for an eyelid surgery for men?

Men undergoing a blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, often want to erase some – but not all – of their aging symptoms around the eyes. Those issues might include:
  • Drooping of the upper lid that makes you look tired or interferes with vision
  • Creases that have formed in the outer corners and underneath the eyes
  • Excess skin in the lower lid that leads to sagging underneath the eyes
  • Puffiness under the eyes that makes you look perpetually tired
Our surgeons will carefully assess your precise concerns to determine whether eyelid surgery will appropriately meet your needs. Regardless of the chosen treatment plan, our surgeons will work to keep your results understated and natural to avoid the stigma that plastic surgery often holds for men.

Eyelid Surgery for men approaches

Since men age differently than women, their facial goals and surgical procedures need to be different as well. We understand this and adapt our approach to have our male patients look as natural and masculine as possible.

Upper Lid Surgery for men

When men undergo upper eyelid surgery, the focus is generally on eliminating drooping and sagging without compromising the manlier contour of the eye. In most cases, removal of excess tissue and skin is very limited. The incisions are carefully and strategically placed to maintain the integrity of the eyelid crease and to limit scarring.

Lower Lid Surgery for men

Male lower lid surgery aims to remove excess skin, reverse drooping and eliminate puffiness under the eye. Incisions are placed either inside the lid or along the lash line to minimize post-operative scarring. As many men want to keep a few creases intact to maintain that exciting masculine look, our surgeons will not smooth away all of your fine lines.

Upper and Lower Eyelid surgery for men

The upper and lower eyelid surgery for men can be performed both individually and simultaneously. Performing them at the same time is the optimal approach for men who have concerns with both lids, since you achieve full results with just one time under anesthesia and one recovery period.

The Recovery Process

There is usually some swelling and discomfort after the surgery, which can be managed with oral medication. You will be sent home with detailed instructions on how to minimize side effects and care for your incisions during the early days after your procedure. While men usually feel ready to return to activities within a week or so, some choose to wait a bit longer to ensure that signs of the surgery have completely subsided.
The results of your treatment will be evident right after surgery and will continue to improve as you heal fully. Your refreshed appearance should last many years, particularly if you protect your skin from the sun and use high-quality skin care products. Over time, you may begin to see aging symptoms creep in once again, prompting you to seek additional treatments to maintain your masculine younger look.
