Blepharoplasty

Like women, men often first notice signs of aging appear around their eyes in the form of fine lines, drooping of the upper lid, and puffiness in the lower lid. Like women, men often seek surgery (known as blepharoplasty) to correct these concerns, but men have very different aesthetic goals when they undergo eyelid surgery. If you are considering this procedure, you likely want to rejuvenate your appearance without losing your masculine, rugged looks. Natural is the key, with results that are carefully understated and yet impactful for the rest of the face.

To ensure that your surgery produces the results you are hoping for, it is imperative to choose a plastic surgeon that frequently performs this procedure for men. Dr. Saad tailors his eyelid surgery technique to each of his patients, giving men the natural, subtle looks they want without making it obvious that a cosmetic procedure was performed. With extensive knowledge of facial anatomy, Dr. Saad will provide you a result that is refreshed and decidedly masculine.

Are You a Candidate?

Men undergoing eyelid surgery often want to erase some – but not all – of their aging symptoms around the eyes. Those issues might include:

  • Drooping of the upper lid that makes you look tired or interferes with vision
  • Creases that have formed in the outer corners and underneath the eyes
  • Excess skin in the lower lid that leads to sagging underneath the eyes
  • Puffiness under the eyes that makes you look perpetually tired

Dr. Saad will carefully assess your precise concerns to determine whether eyelid surgery will appropriately meet your needs. In some cases, eyelid surgery alone may do the trick, while other men may choose to combine their blepharoplasty with another procedure (like a facelift) to further enhance their appearance. No matter what your treatment plan looks like, Dr. Saad will take care to keep your results understated and natural to avoid the stigma that plastic surgery often holds for men.

Before Blepharoplasty

At your initial consultation with Dr. Saad, you will discuss how he plans to produce the results you want, taking the anatomy of the male face into careful consideration. For example, while women are looking to eliminate fine lines and create a feminine arch to the upper lid crease, men prefer a more horizontal line to the upper lid and often want to keep a few lines to maintain their dignified appearance. Dr. Saad can show you photos of previous male patients to give you a better idea of what you can expect from your procedure.

Blepharoplasty Options

When you choose to undergo eyelid surgery, there are three basic options to consider:

Upper Lid Surgery

When men undergo upper lid surgery, the focus is generally on eliminating drooping and sagging without compromising the more manly contour of the eye. In most cases, removal of excess tissue and skin is very limited. Dr. Saad carefully places the incisions to maintain the integrity of the eyelid crease and to limit scarring.

Lower Lid Surgery

Lower lid surgery is used to remove excess skin, reverse drooping and eliminate puffiness under the eye. Incisions will be placed either inside the lid or along the lash line to minimize post-operative scarring. Dr. Saad is not as focused on smoothing away all of the fine lines in his male patients, since many want to keep a few creases intact.

Combination Surgery

Dr. Saad can also perform upper and lower eyelid surgery at the same time. This is the optimal approach for men that have concerns with both lids, since you achieve full results with just one time under anesthesia and one recovery period.

About Your Surgery

Dr. Saad will administer local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia before he performs this procedure. Incisions are made very carefully to prevent excessive scarring after surgery. Through the incisions, Dr. Saad will remove redundant skin and tissue if necessary to create a smoother surface to the lid. Surgery on one lid takes approximately one hour, and two hours if both eyelids are done at the same time. After surgery, you will spend some time under observation by our staff before you are released to go home.

The Recovery Process

Blepharoplasty does cause bruising and swelling following surgery, with the lower lids experiencing more swelling in most cases. Dr. Saad will give you instructions to minimize these side effects as much as possible. You will also be given eye drops to keep your eyes moist while they are healing, and oral pain medication for any discomfort you might have in the first few days. Most patients return to work within one week and are allowed to resume more strenuous exercise a few weeks later.

The results of your eyelid surgery will be evident right away, although you may not get a complete picture until the swelling subsides. In most cases, the results of blepharoplasty are very long-lasting. You can help to extend your results by protecting your eyes from the sun and using high-quality skincare products daily.

If you are dissatisfied with your reflection in the mirror due to signs of aging around the eyes, Dr. Saad can help. He works with both male and female patients, and will ensure that the results you achieve will be natural, understated and masculine.
