For many men, eyelid surgery (or blepharoplasty) is a popular procedure that helps them to look younger and more alert. The area around your eyes will begin to show signs of aging earlier than many other features, so a blepharoplasty can enhance the overall appearance of your face. If your droopy or wrinkled eyelids are making you look old, tired, or unmotivated, then you should consider eyelid surgery for men, available at Premier Plastic Surgery in Pittsburgh, PA.
If you want to correct one of the following issues, then eyelid surgery for men might help:
Prior to your procedure, we will ensure that you don’t have any allergies or eye problems that could impair your healing. We may also recommend that you avoid smoking or taking anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin, during recovery.
During your surgery, your plastic surgeon will remove skin and fatty tissue from beneath the eyelid, which eliminates puffiness and creates a smoother appearance. The specifics of your procedure will vary depending on your unique needs.
Typically, this procedure takes one hour to complete, though it may be longer if you choose to pair it with a brow lift or facelift. You can request either local anesthesia or full sedation for this surgery. Both options are safe and comfortable.
Afterward, we recommend that you take one week to rest and recover. During this time, you may experience minor bruising, swelling, or general discomfort.
The shape and contour of men’s eyelids and eyebrows are subtly different than those of women. The muscles are often heavier, while the skin is thicker. Fortunately, our plastic surgeon, Dr. Brian V. Heil, understands how to achieve the best possible results for male features.
Your full results will be noticeable within several weeks of your eyelid surgery for men. At this time, your eyes will look younger and more alert, though your incision lines may take a little longer to reach their final shape.
The results of your surgery will be permanent, but you should expect your face to age naturally afterward. To protect your investment, we recommend shielding your face from direct sunlight with regular application of sunscreen.
