Wake Up Your Droopy Eyes With Blepharoplasty

Eye bags before and after cosmetic treatmentDroopy, sagging eyelids can give you a sleepy, worn appearance. Even after a full night’s rest or a relaxing vacation, you may still look like you’ve just pulled an all-nighter. Blepharoplasty can brighten and refresh your appearance so that you don’t look fatigued all the time. This surgery for your eyelids can rejuvenate your whole face and give you a more awake and youthful look.

What Is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that addresses aging, sagging tissue in the eyelids. It can be performed to rejuvenate either the upper or lower eyelids or both together. Also called an eyelid lift or eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty removes redundant eyelid skin and repositions or removes fat to correct bags, puffiness, wrinkles, and drooping in the eye area.

What Can Blepharoplasty Correct?

Blepharoplasty can rejuvenate the eyes to improve a perpetually tired, angry, or sad appearance. Specifically, eyelid surgery can correct the following:

  • Droopy upper eyelids
  • Upper eyelid hooding that impairs vision
  • Puffy upper eyelids
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Grooves under the eyes
  • Drooping lower eyelids
  • Loose skin around the eyes
  • Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes

What Is It Like to Undergo Blepharoplasty?

After administering either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, your surgeon will begin the procedure. Depending on whether you undergo an upper blepharoplasty, lower blepharoplasty, or both, incisions will be inconspicuously placed in the natural creases of the upper eyelids, below the lower lash line, or inside the lower eyelids. Your surgeon will remove excess skin and reposition or remove fat deposits to rejuvenate your eyes. After one to three hours, the procedure will end, and you will return home. After a short recovery of five to seven days, you should be able to return to work. As your swelling subsides, you will see a noticeable improvement in how refreshed and youthful you look. The results of blepharoplasty will not only brighten your eyes but will revitalize your entire face.

Before and After OtoplastyDid you know that well over one million American men underwent surgical or non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the last year alone*? Plastic surgery can enhance your appearance and give you a competitive edge in your social and work life. Here are eight reasons to improve your appearance with male plastic surgery procedures.

1. Reduce Facial Aging

Is your forehead lined with heavy wrinkles? Do you have deep hollows beneath your eyes? Do people around you frequently comment that you look tired, angry, or sad? Wrinkles and hollows are signs of aging skin and can be corrected with non-surgical treatments. Dermal fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic can reduce facial wrinkles and lines so that your face looks smooth, young, relaxed, and refreshed.

2. Improve Sagging Eyelids and Bags Under the Eyes

Excess lines or skin above the eyes is caused by sagging upper eyelid skin. Bags under the eyes are caused by displaced fat. Both issues detract from your appearance and can make you look significantly older than you feel. You can recapture your youthful appearance from the glory days with eyelid surgery to tighten the tissues of your eyelids and smooth away wrinkles and bags.

3. Eliminate Jowls, Wrinkles, and Sagging in the Lower Face and Neck

Men and women both suffer the effects of aging. Over time, gravity can take a toll and leave you with heavy jowls, folds, sagging, a double chin, and visible muscle bands. A facelift with a neck lift can eliminate these issues to improve definition in your jawline, neck, and face. After this surgery, you could look as much as five to 10 years younger.

4. Get Rid of Stubborn Fat

A lot of men are dismayed when they discover that their high school days of gorging on pizza and junk food without gaining weight are gone. Over time, the metabolism slows down and the body tends to pack on the pounds. With procedures like tummy tuck surgery, liposuction, and CoolSculpting®, men can get rid of stubborn fat. These procedures target fat deposits to restore a leaner and more toned figure.

5. Flatten a Beer Belly

The abdomen is one of the main fat deposits in the body. If yours has developed a bit of a paunch, or even if it has turned into a full-blown beer belly, tummy tuck surgery may be able to help you. This surgery can eliminate stubborn belly fat and tighten your core muscles and sagging skin to give you a flatter, more masculine abdomen.

6. Masculinize Your Chest

Some men have overdeveloped breast tissue or excess fat in the chest that gives them the appearance of male breasts. This disconcerting condition is known as gynecomastia and can cause embarrassment and discomfort. Male breast reduction is an excellent procedure that can remove the excess breast tissue and fat to permanently improve your chest contours.

7. Tighten Sagging Skin

Aging and gravity both take a toll on the skin, causing it to sag almost anywhere on the body. Whether you have sagging skin on your belly, arms, thighs, or elsewhere, there’s a procedure for you. Some of the most popular surgeries that tighten sagging skin are tummy tuck surgery and arm lift surgery.

8. Enhance Facial Features

For some men, it’s not a battle against aging but rather a battle against genetics. For instance, if you have a naturally weak, recessed chin, you may have a harder time presenting yourself with masculine confidence. A chin implant can add definition to your jawline to improve your facial structure and portray a more confident look. Likewise, rhinoplasty (one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures among men) can redefine your nose for better facial balance and attractiveness. Finally, otoplasty can make large ears smaller or make ears that stick out lie flatter against the head. These procedures can enhance your facial features to improve your appearance.
