Drooping eyelids, under-eye bags, and fine wrinkles on the lower eyelid are all factors that can make men look tired and older than they are. Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is available in Beverly Hills to counteract signs of aging with the removal of excess fat and skin to make patients feel more confident throughout the natural aging process.
Benefits of a Blepharoplasty for Men
Blepharoplasty for men can correct and improve a range of conditions that may be contributing to an older, tired appearance, as well as interfering with the field of vision.
Men seek eyelid surgery to improve sagging of the upper eyelids, address wrinkles below and around the eyes, and reduce dark spots and puffy bags under the eyes. Blepharoplasty for men can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. Men who choose this rejuvenating cosmetic procedure will meet with Dr. Nima beforehand to discuss their surgical goals and what they hope to achieve from eyelid surgery. Dr. Nima will ask patients whether they suffer from any medical conditions or vision problems and whether they are using medications or nutritional supplements that may interfere with sedation or the healing process.
Conditions that can be addressed with a blepharoplasty for men include dark undereye bags, fine lines, wrinkles around the eyes, and sagging, drooping skin that hangs from the upper eyelids. Beverly Hills men suffering from vision problems due to sagging upper eyelids can undergo blepharoplasty to benefit from improved peripheral vision. This eyelid surgery can restore vibrancy and alertness to a man’s overall appearance without making results look unnatural or less masculine.
Is the procedure right for you?
During the initial consultation, Dr. Nima will evaluate the appearance of the eyes to determine the amount of excess skin and fat to be removed. Dr. Nima will also discuss other surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures that can help rejuvenate the eyes. Setting clear expectations for what eyelid surgery can and cannot do will also help male patients understand whether this procedure can ideally help them achieve their aesthetic goals.
When performed by an experienced, highly-trained board-certified facial plastic surgeon, blepharoplasty for men can brighten the eyes and remove any heaviness contributing to an older, tired-looking appearance. Dr. Nima is skilled at performing eyelid surgery for both men and women and can effectively maintain and enhance the masculine shape and contour of a male’s eyebrows and eyelids during this procedure.
What is the Recovery Process like?
Blepharoplasty for men is performed under sedation as an outpatient service at Dr. Nima’s Beverly Hills rejuvenation practice. Eyelid surgery involves making a series of careful, tiny incisions in eyelid folds, behind the lashes, and in other places where scarring can be hidden. Men who have sunken, hollowed areas below the eyes may have a small amount of fat transferred from another part of the body to restore volume and youth around the eyes.
Blepharoplasty for men is a minimally-invasive procedure that results in very little discomfort, bruising, and swelling. Patients can go home on the same day of surgery and return to work within one week after sutures have been removed by Dr. Nima.
The results of eyelid surgery can be maintained and prolonged by protecting eyes from the sun and wind, using a combination of wide-brimmed hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Non-surgical cosmetic procedures for the eyes, such as BOTOX® and dermal fillers can also extend the results of blepharoplasty, as can quality skin care products that contain retinol.
Blepharoplasty for Men Frequently Asked Question
How does a woman's Blepharoplasty procedure differ in technique than Blepharoplasty for men?
The surgical technique used in blepharoplasty for women is highly similar to that for men. However, the goal with blepharoplasty for men is to rejuvenate the overall appearance of the eyes while retaining the patient’s masculine features.
Women usually have excess fat removed from their upper eyelids that contribute to drooping and sagging to have a more youthful appearance. But using this same approach in a blepharoplasty for men can produce a feminine look, and that detracts from the patient’s masculinity. For this reason, upper eyelid surgery is usually only performed on Beverly Hills men when drooping eyelids become severe or impair the field of vision.
What makes Blepharoplasty so popular among men?
Men seek blepharoplasty in Beverly Hills to rejuvenate the eyes, turn back the clock, and feel younger. Blepharoplasty for men can reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, along with dark spots and puffy bags below the eyes. This cosmetic eyelid surgery can also improve sagging of the upper eyelids that may be obstructing vision.
Eyelid surgery can take years off a man’s appearance to help him feel and look younger than his true years. Blepharoplasty for men can boost an older man’s confidence and self-esteem, and also make it easier for him to compete with younger counterparts in the workplace and dating spheres.
How can I avoid a highly arched and deep upper eyelid crease when getting a Blepharoplasty for men?
A highly arched and deep upper eyelid crease is typically desired by women who seek blepharoplasty since these features enhance femininity and make it easier to apply makeup. The best way for men to avoid these results when having eyelid surgery is to seek out an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon who offers blepharoplasty for men.
Dr. Nima has years of experience performing facial procedures on men and can effectively rejuvenate a man’s eyes without reducing masculinity. Before performing eyelid surgeries on men, Dr. Nima holds one-on-one consultations with patients to discuss what they can expect from their procedures. Dr. Nima also explains how a blepharoplasty for men can be performed in ways that produce natural, aesthetically-pleasing results that bring out each man’s best features.
Is a man's brow a different pattern and shape than a female brow?
Beverly Hills men tend to have larger brows than females, along with thicker skin on their foreheads that starts to droop as they grow older. Sagging, drooping skin on the brow can lead to wrinkles, accompanied by a tired appearance that can make men seem unapproachable. Blepharoplasty for men is often combined with brow lift surgery to rejuvenate the appearance of the brow and eliminate the presence of excess skin.
During their initial blepharoplasty consultations, men can openly voice their concerns about their brows to their plastic surgeons and learn whether they also qualify for brow lift surgery.
