Every year, hundreds of thousands of men like you choose blepharoplasty to improve the way they look. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, gives you a younger appearance, removes puffiness and bags under the eyes that make you look worn and tired.
Are You A Candidate?
Blepharoplasty can be a solution for you if you are trying to:
Reduce bags under the eyes
Create a younger, “more alert” look
Remove excess skin under the eyes
While this procedure may lessen the appearance of dark circles, it will not necessarily eliminate them. Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes may be improved particularly with concurrent laser resurfacing of the eyelid skin. Dr. Elizabeth may recommend related procedures such skin resurfacing or fat transfer to address other aging changes in the lower eyelid area.
How The Procedure Is Done
With a lower eyelid lift, the incision is made in an inconspicuous site along the lashline and smile creases of the lower lid. The incision can also be made inside the lower eyelid if only excess puffiness due to fat pads needs to be addressed and there is little to no extra skin. The procedure takes less than an hour and can be performed with local anesthesia and relaxation or IV sedation.
Eyelid skin typically heals quickly and scars are progressively inconspicuous with time. Bruising and swelling are expected initially but resolve over the first few weeks.
Blepharoplasty helps create a less tired, more youthful look. You may find that people respond to you differently upon meeting you, because they may have the impression that you are more engaged with them.
