What is Blepharoplasty for Men?
Due to aging or genetic factors, men tend to start losing elasticity around their eye areas around the age of 35. Blepharoplasty for men, also known as a male eyelift, is a type of cosmetic surgery that gets rid of drooping eyelids and bulging under eye bags. Eyelifts tighten the eyelid muscles and remove the extra skin to give a more awake or refreshed look. Although eyelifts are a good option for reducing the effects of aging, men who are thinking about having the procedure need to be realistic about what the surgery can and cannot do. Eyelifts tighten up loose skin that ages the eyes, but they are not effective for eliminating dark under eye circles or crow’s feet. It is common for men to have eyelifts at the same time as forehead lifts, filler injections, and other facial cosmetic procedures.

Benefits of Blepharoplasty for Men
Aesthetically, eyelid surgery tightens sagging skin around the upper and lower eyelids, allowing patients to look and feel years younger. Eyelifts have medical benefits as well. Men who have upper eyelids that droop may have obscured vision with their eyelids hanging in front of their eyes. In these cases, eyelifts improve the field of vision. Many people do not realize that eyelifts come with social benefits. But men who have had eyelift surgery report that their renewed confidence helps them both socially and professionally. Best of all, eyelifts come with long lasting results.
Who is a Good Candidate for Blepharoplasty for Men?
Most of the men who visit Dr. Peters expressing an interest in eyelifts are 35 years or older, although the procedure can be performed on men of any age. Men who opt for an eyelift need to be in good health and without any eye conditions that might affect the outcome of the surgery.
How Is Male Blepharoplasty Performed?
The method used to perform your eyelift depends on exactly what part of the eye requires surgery. Miniscule incisions are hidden in places such as along the crease in the upper eyelid or on the lower outer rim of the bottom eyelid. In some cases, fat will be transferred from one part of the eyelid to another to add definition and balance. Patients are often relieved to hear that their incisions will be imperceptible after they have healed. Although anesthesia is used, male blepharoplasty is usually done as an out-patient surgery. Surgery can last up to three hours, and you can go home after to recover.
