Eyelid Surgery for Men By Anya Kishinevsky, M.D. on February 16, 2021

Middle-aged man smilingPeople tend to think of cosmetic surgery as being primarily for women, but men also deserve to look and feel their best. As men and women age, their eyelids may sag or droop, making them look constantly sad or tired.

Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)fixes droopy eyelids to fight signs of aging. When performing eyelid surgery on men, Dr. Anya Kishinevsky rejuvenates their appearance while retaining the masculine contours of the face. Many men in the Norwalk, Fairfield, and Bridgeport, CT, area can benefit from this effective facial plastic surgery procedure.

What Eyelid Surgery Does

You may be wondering if eyelid surgery is right for you. Eyelid surgery aims to provide a more youthful appearance by removing excess skin and tissue from the upper and lower eyelids. A blepharoplasty successfully treats the following problems that affect the eye area:

  • Droopy upper eyelids
  • Puffy lower eyelids
  • Deep bags under eyes
  • Wrinkly eyelids
  • Narrow eyes

Reasons for Men to Consider Eyelid Surgery

There are many compelling reasons for men to consider eyelid surgery. The most common reasons include:

  • A desire to look younger
  • Self-consciousness about appearance
  • Vision obscured by upper eyelid or eye shape

The Eyelid Surgery Procedure

An eyelid surgery is performed differently depending on which eyelid is being worked on. Regardless of the type of procedure, you will need a friend or family member to give you a ride home after your surgery.

Upper Eyelid Surgery

An upper eyelid surgery involves an incision that is concealed along the natural fold/crease of the upper eyelid. This incision allows plastic surgeons to remove excess skin and make any additional adjustments.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

A lower eyelid surgery targets extra fat deposits along with excess skin. When removing excess fat, the plastic surgeon will make transconjunctival incisions, or cuts inside the eyelid. For removing excess skin, your surgeon will make subciliary incisions, or incisions located just below the lower eyelashes.

Eyelid Surgery Recovery

The recovery timeline for eyelid surgery depends on many variables, including overall health, extent of the surgical work, and patient compliance during recovery.

Following surgery we recommend cold compresses to manage swelling and discomfort. We will also recommend staying out of the sun. This keeps the skin protected from sun damage and allows you to heal quickly and efficiently. Keeping your head elevated during the day and as you sleep can also improve recovery time.

We know you are anxious to see the end results and get back to your new life. However, it is crucial to follow your post-op instructions during the recovery process. After about two weeks the bruising and swelling should subside.

Men Can Enjoy Renewed Self-confidence

Cosmetic surgery can bolster your self-assurance and make you feel like a new man. Feel great about your face and how you look, and shed your self-consciousness.

The benefits of eyelid surgery don’t just improve appearance and confidence. It can also open new doors for your career and social life.
