Men Get Eyelifts Too

Eyelift surgery in men (also known as eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty) is still a booming trend. It is actually one of the most popular male cosmetic surgery procedures today. The cosmetic procedure reduces both bagginess from lower eyelids and removes excess skin from the upper eyelids. Quite frankly the male eye receives just as much attention as their female counterparts and droopy, sad and tired eyes are not the trend. Men are seeking the refreshed and rested look that eyelift surgery can provide.

In a market where women previously accounted for most of the surgical procedures, men are jumping on board and having their upper lids lifted, lower lid lifted or both. Based in Beverly Hills and Santa Barbara, Mehryar (Ray) Taban, MD, FAC is a leading oculoplastic surgeon who is skilled in performing male plastic surgery including upper and lower blepharoplasty on men.

The Male Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery Procedure

Male blepharoplasty differs than females in that it is done in much more conservative fashion to avoid surgical un-natural feminine appearance. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and can take as little as an hour. Under either local or local sedationanesthesia, the incisions are made where the natural crease should be in the upper eyelids. The excess skin is then removed.  For lower blepharoplasty, the bags (fat) are removed from a hidden transconjunctival approach (inside the eyelid), in a stitch-less fashion.

Who Is a Good Candidate For Blepharoplasty?

You might be a great candidate for blepharoplasty in Beverly Hills or Santa Barbara if you have any of the following:

  • Excessive, sagging or wrinkled upper eyelid skin.
  • Excess upper eyelid skin that interferes with vision.
  • Lost your natural upper eyelid crease
  • Puffy pouches of fat in the upper eyelids that create a tired or aged appearance.

If you have one or more of these conditions, then blepharoplasty may be the right fit for you. As long as you are a healthy individual, who does not have a life-threatening illness or medical condition that can impair healing, then eyelift surgery can give you the appearance you desire.

Remember, the male cosmetic surgery landscape has changed. Dr. Taban treats male patients everyday for various reasons. Additionally, he performs a wide range of eye surgery procedures that can be coupled with an eyelift to further enhance your appearance. Procedures that can be performed concurrently include: canthoplasty, midface lift, facelift, fat injections, and laser skin resurfacing. Many times for optimal results, patients will opt for a combination of procedures, the most popular being the skin resurfacing and blepharoplasty combination. Through this fairly quick eyelift procedure, you can rid your eyes of “manbags” and reverse some of the effects of aging.
