A male eyelid lift, also known as male Blepharoplasty can improve the look of the eyelids for a more youthful appearance.
The eyes are a distinct facial feature and are often one of the first things people notice when meeting you. Over time, lines, wrinkles, and lax skin around our eyes can cause us to appear sad, tired, or older than we feel. A male eyelid lift can help to correct these common signs of aging while taking into account the masculine appearance.
Some men may have genetic under-eye bags or eyelid hooding, which can be addressed with a male eyelid lift. Sometimes, upper eyelid bagging is so severe that it negatively impacts your line of vision. Male eyelid surgery can be performed on both the upper and lower eyelids for a comprehensive approach to a more youthful appearance. A male eyelid lift or male blepharoplasty is performed in the comfort of our state of art facility using twilight sedation and local anesthesia without the need for general anesthesia.
Prior to your male eyelid lift, there are some steps you should take to ensure optimal outcomes. First, smokers should stop smoking at least two weeks ahead of time to ensure better healing. Patients may also be asked to avoid taking certain medications and supplements that may increase bleeding.
Following your male eyelid lift, it is important to let yourself relax and recover. Cold compresses can be placed on the eyes to help reduce any discomfort and swelling. You may also be given eye drops and/or ointment to help treat your eyes and the incisions. Be sure to follow Dr. Sadati’s post-op instructions for best results.
It is recommended that you sleep with your head raised, which can be done by propping up pillows under your head. Your eyelids may feel tight, and soreness and bruising may occur. Any discomfort can be controlled with pain relievers such as Tylenol. Patients should avoid heavy lifting and strenuous activities for 3 weeks. After about two weeks, you should wear dark sunglasses when outdoors to protect your eyes from the sun. Most patients can return to their everyday activities about 7 days after surgery. However, overall recovery may differ from patient to patient.
Prior to your male eyelid lift, you will attend a consultation with Dr. Sadati. During your consultation, you will discuss your health history, as well as topics relating to the eyes such as dry eyes, eye-related allergies, glaucoma, and other eye issues. Be sure to disclose any thyroid or circulatory problems, diabetes, or other medical conditions to ensure a safe procedure.
Dr. Sadati will then examine your eyes and discuss expectations and treatment options with you.
