Eyelid Lift for Men

As we age, the skin around our eyes changes. The muscles weaken, the skin stretches, and fat and tissue begin to accumulate. This causes bags and hoods to form below and above the eyes, making you appear older and tired. An eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, removes fat and excess skin that has accumulated around the eyes, tightening the skin and improving the appearance of the eyelids.

Candidates for an Eyelid Lift

If you have saggy eyelids or bags under your eyes that make you look tired or obstruct your vision, you may be a good candidate for an eyelid lift. An eyelid lift can give you a more youthful appearance. If their vision is not obstructed by saggy eyelids, many men prefer to only have a lower eyelid lift.

The Procedure

The incision for an upper eyelid lift or lower eyelid lift is made in the creases of the natural eyelid to conceal scarring. Dr. Nima will reposition fat deposits, tighten muscles, and/or remove excess skin. The result is a tighter, more youthful appearance.

The Recovery

Patients will experience light swelling and bruising after an eyelid lift. Men are likely to experience swelling for a longer period of time than women. You may be given lubricating ointment or Dr. Nima may recommend a cold compress to mitigate any discomfort. Many patients return to work or normal activities in 2-4 days. You should use sunglasses while in the sun until your eyelids are fully healed.
