Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Rejuvenation): The Most Sought After Cosmetic Procedure by Men
Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a procedure that involves removing excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids. This surgery can help individuals achieve a more youthful appearance in the eye area because the procedure improves drooping and sagging of the upper eyelids, as well as puffiness and bags beneath the lower eyelids. In addition to the eyes physically looking better, patients who have a lot of extra eye lid skin can experience improved vision.
This surgical procedure has become very popular among men and the popularity continues to grow every year. The eye area is one of the first places that men begin to show signs of aging. Drooping occurs, and wrinkles begin to develop, which can make men look exhausted and older than they are. Therefore, so many men turn to this procedure, so they can maintain a fresh and youthful look. Another reason this cosmetic surgery has become so popular for men is because scarring is usually minimal. Since men are less likely to discuss having plastic surgery, little to no evidence of a procedure is a plus.
The procedure begins with anesthesia. Medicine is given to the patient for comfort during the procedure. Next, the incision lines are strategically designed, so scars are hidden within the natural indentations of the eye lid area. An incision within the natural crease of the eye allows the upper eyelid to be corrected. Adjustments can be made to the lower eyelid with an incision just below the lower lash line. The last step in the surgery is closing the incision with sutures or glue. Sutures are typically removed within one week. Obviously, the best part of the procedure is finally seeing some results. After swelling and bruising subside, rejuvenated eyelids will gradually appear.
