This is now the second most popular form of cosmetic surgery for men.
Eyelid lift surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is the second most common form of cosmetic surgery among men. However, achieving natural-looking results in male blepharoplasty requires a unique blend of specialized techniques and artistic judgment, making it a slightly more difficult procedure than female blepharoplasty.
Surgery that elevates the male brow should be conservative, as doing so too high can lend it an effeminate appearance. This is one of the primary considerations in male blepharoplasty, for example.
Blepharoplasty can restore a youthful appearance to the eyelids by removing sagging skin and excess tissue from the upper and lower eyelid regions.
One of the criteria for a successful eyelid surgery is whether or not you:
To be in good health generally.
Avoid having any severe eye problems.
Struggle to see clearly because of extra skin or fat.
It is also important for patients to have realistic expectations. Glaucoma, dry eye, and thyroid disorders are just a few examples of medical conditions that can’t be cured by cosmetic eyelid surgery.

The first step is a consultation during which we will talk about your goals, current health, and lifestyle. Reasons for treatment, expectations, current medical conditions including allergies, current medication, and use of alcohol, tobacco, and drugs, personal and family history, and results of previous eye problems or surgeries should all be discussed prior to any eye surgery.
You’ll need to do these things before getting a blepharoplasty:
Diagnosis and treatment based on the results of medical tests.
Start taking new medications or have your current ones adjusted.
It is recommended that patients refrain from smoking for at least four weeks prior to surgery.
Do not take aspirin or any other anti-inflammatory medication.
Prepare for your return trip home by reserving a ride.
Surgery on the eyelids is an elective, day-case procedure. The two main categories of eyelid surgery are:
The upper eyelids are folded inward, creating a perfect hiding place for the incision. After making an incision, your surgeon will trim away redundant layers of skin and tissue, tighten the remaining skin, and sculpt the fat to restore your eye’s youthful contours.
The excess skin is removed through an incision made under the lower eyelashes. To reduce under-eye puffiness and reposition fatty tissue, an incision will be made inside the lower eyelid.
Your plastic surgeon will not only answer any questions you may have following surgery, but will also give you detailed written instructions covering the following:
Afterward, at home, you will receive postoperative care.
Drug orders are placed.
Scheduling a follow-up visit.
In order to minimize post-operative swelling, we will be bandaging the area around your eye. In the early stages, you might feel some pain that can be treated with medication. The typical recovery time for a patient is one week. Dr. Trelles explains that after a few months, the incisions will heal to the point where they are unnoticeable.
The results of an eyelid surgery are only visible over the course of a few weeks after the procedure. Although the effects are long-lasting, they may be modified by factors such as genetics and lifestyle. As we get older, our skin may lose its elasticity and wrinkles may reappear.
