The Benefits of an Eye Lift Procedure for Men

The eyes are usually one of the first things we notice about a person we meet. Looking at someone in the eyes is a sign of respect and good communication. The eyes are also one of the first parts of the body to reveal aging or fatigue, so it’s no wonder that many people are concerned with the appearance of that part of their face. Here we discuss the benefits of an eye lift.

One common problem with the eye region are crow’s feet, also known as laugh lines. Another problem, puffiness, can lead to a tired or stern appearance. Sometimes, this puffiness isn’t even a result of fatigue—genetics play a part, and the threshold for getting puffy eyes may be higher for some than others.

Additional issues could include:

  • Sagging of the upper eyelids
  • Wrinkles underneath the eyes
  • Puffiness and dark spots under the eyes
  • Excess skin on the lower eyelids

Eye lift surgery, also known as blephorasty, is one of the fastest growing procedures for men, with over 30,000 procedures done in 2015.

Eyelid surgery removes fat, and sometimes excess skin and muscle, from the upper and the lower eyelids. An eye lift can correct droopy upper lids as well as puffy bags below the eyes, which can make you look older or more tired than you feel. Blepharoplasty can be performed alone, or in conjunction with other facial procedures like a face lift.

Eyelid surgery can help men whose drooping eyes make them look more tired or less alert than they feel. During the procedure, the excess skin that produces sagging or droopy eyelids is surgically removed, along with the excess fatty tissue responsible for bags below the eyes.

Because the eyes have such a significant impact on the rest of a person’s appearance, blepharoplasty can give men a fresher expression overall, making them seem younger, and more vigorous and alert. Blepharoplasty surgery lasts roughly one to two hours, and is followed by a relatively short recovery period. Men usually are able to resume their normal routine without discomfort within a week after surgery.

The result of blepharoplasty is a more alert and rested appearance. You may find that you feel more confident in business and social situations. Friends and colleagues may comment on your improved appearance without realizing that you had surgery.
