Eyelid Surgery For Men

At The Spiegel Center in Newton, Massachusetts, men seek facial rejuvenation almost as much as women do. While facelifts are more widely known, blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a very effective, short procedure that requires minimal downtime and yields outstanding results. Some men seek eyelid surgery for health reasons like ptosis, a condition where the field of vision is obscured by drooping eyelids.

A Way To Fight Facial Aging 

As people age, their skin loses elasticity. This leads to wrinkles and lines, which can be especially obvious around the eyes. For men, deep under-eye bags and drooping around the eyes can be an additional concern. Fortunately, blepharoplasty can be performed on both the lower and upper eyelids to make male patients look younger and more engaged.

Upper Blepharoplasty

Upper eyelid surgery is designed to correct upper eyelids that look puffy, droopy, or bulging. During an upper blepharoplasty, our surgical team carefully removes excess skin and fat and tightens the orbital muscles. Upper eyelid surgery also corrects ptosis, restoring the field of vision to optimal levels.

Lower Blepharoplasty

Puffiness and stubborn bags under the eyes are treated with lower eyelid surgery. Also fixed by this procedure is the medical condition called eye ectropion, in which the lower lid is slacker than normal and the red inner lining of the lid is exposed. Eye ectropion can cause painful dry eyes and redness, as well as look unattractive.

What is the procedure like? 

The particulars of eyelid surgery depend on the needs of the patient. Most upper blepharoplasties can occur under local anesthesia and sedation, while lower blepharoplasties typically require general anesthesia.

Each procedure lasts 1-2 hours, during which your surgical team at The Spiegel Center repositions delicate facial tissue and removes excess skin and fat. Incisions are always hidden in natural creases, making any traces of surgery undetectable to the untrained eye.

When Should A Guy Seek Eyelid Surgery?

Aging is inevitable, but being dissatisfied with your appearance is a choice. If you regularly feel unimpressed with your reflection in the mirror or frequently hear that you look tired or upset, eyelid surgery may be a relatively easy way to look revitalized. Men who undergo eyelid surgery typically have the following issues: 

  • Sagging, droopy eyelids
  • Heavy bags under the eyes
  • Look angry or fatigued all the time
  • Have significant wrinkling around the eyes
  • Ptosis or eye ectropion

Minimal Recovery Time Means Little Life Disruption

Patients love eyelid surgery because the results are major, but the recovery time is not. Bruising and swelling are normal and subside in about a week. Patients should plan to rest for a few days after the surgery. Our surgical care team will create a tailored recovery plan for you, and schedule follow-up visits to monitor healing and remove any stitches. Cold compresses are recommended to ease discomfort. 

Approach Life Refreshed And Revitalized

After eyelid surgery, men look rested, brighter, and more handsome. Instead of appearing grumpy or tired, they seem engaged and at ease. For many, eyelid surgery arrests or even eliminates the need for a facelift, saving them money and weeks that would otherwise be spent in recovery. Final results settle after 4-6 weeks, and when combined with good at-home care, results will last for years.
