The earliest signs of aging in men can often be seen around the eyes. As the skin ages, eyelids can lose elasticity, often causing sagging and built up fat around the eyes. Blepharoplasty, which is also called eyelid surgery, an eye lift, or an eye job, can prolong the process of facial aging by giving the eyes a lifted, refreshed appearance.
What Is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure used to reduce signs of aging around the eyes, as well as fix vision problems caused by drooping eyelids. In this surgical treatment, your doctor will remove excess skin and fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids. The remaining eyelid tissue will then be secured into a new, flattering position.
The blepharoplasty procedure takes approximately two hours in our JCAHO-accredited operating room. This in-office procedure is completed discreetly while maintaining the highest possible hospital standards.
How Long Is the Recovery from Blepharoplasty?
The recovery period for blepharoplasty is just one week. At this time, you can return to your regular schedule and activities. After approximately two weeks, most of the swelling and discoloration around the eyes caused by blepharoplasty will have faded.
You can speed up your recovery from blepharoplasty by carefully following provided post-op instructions. Also, plan ahead by rescheduling obligations for the days immediately following the procedure so that you can rest.
What Are the Benefits of Blepharoplasty?
Men can reap several benefits from the blepharoplasty procedure, including:
- Reduced wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes
- Reduced under-eye bags
- Tighter skin and muscle tissue around the eyes
- Elimination of excess fat around the eyes
- Restored vision for men with eyelids that droop over the eyes
