Male Eyelid Lift

What is a Male Eyelid Lift?

As we age, the thin skin around our eyes can lose collagen and elastin rapidly, resulting in lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and more. Men who feel that their eyes always appear tired, unhappy, or less alert than they feel can often benefit from an eyelid lift. 

An eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to restore the refreshed appearance of aging or tired-looking eyes. This procedure can improve the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. 

Candidates for Male Eyelid Lift

Men who are bothered by lax skin, fatty deposits, and eye bags around their eyes can often benefit from a male eyelid lift. Ideal candidates are healthy non-smokers without serious eye conditions. The best way to determine candidacy is to schedule a consultation appointment at Modern Surgical Arts today.

The Male Eyelid Lift Procedure

Male eyelid surgery can be performed under intravenous sedation or general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. There are various eyelid lift procedure techniques, including the following.

Upper Eyelid Surgery

Upper eyelid surgery involves creating an incision in the natural crease above the eye, through which excess skin and fat are removed or adjusted. This is an effective solution for sagging, wrinkled skin on the upper eyelids that can make patients appear tired or old. 

Lower Eyelid Surgery 

Lower eyelid surgery involves creating an incision on the outer edge of the lower eyelid, just beneath the lashes, or inside the eyelid. This is an excellent procedure for correcting eyelid bags, which are usually due to herniated fat that collects beneath the eyes. 

Male Eyelid Lift Results and Recovery

Male eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure and typically takes 24 minutes to 2 hours to complete. Visible bruising and swelling are to be expected, which should reduce over time. Cold compresses can keep your head elevated and can help with swelling. Most patients can return to work within 7-10 days. Lifting, straining, and bending down should be avoided for up to 4 weeks for best results. 

The results of eyelid surgery are generally long-lasting. To maintain results, patients should wear sunscreen when outdoors, practice good nutrition, and avoid smoking.
