Eyelid Surgery for Men

At the Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, blepharoplasty, often called eyelid surgery, in Ann Arbor helps to restore a youthful appearance to the upper or lower eyelids. Sagging eyelids can cause men to look tired and aged. Eyelid surgery can take years off of your appearance by tightening droopy lower eyelids, removing sagging skin, and reducing puffy undereye bags. This surgery can also improve peripheral vision for those patients whose eyelids interfere with vision.

Who Is an Eyelid Lift Candidate?

Men who are unhappy with the appearance of their saggy upper or lower eyelids, or have puffy under eye bags can often benefit from an eyelid lift. Many men choose this procedure to treat or delay signs of facial aging. Healthy, non-smokers with realistic expectations are generally good candidates. A consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons can help to best determine if this procedure is right for you.

The Eyelid Lift Procedure

Before an eyelid lift, patients should avoid certain medications that may complicate the surgery. Patients should also stop smoking at least 6 weeks before surgery.

An eyelid lift is an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. An incision will be made in the natural crease of the upper or lower eyelid. Fat may then be redistributed and excess fat and skin removed. In the case of puffy undereye bags, an incision just below the lower lash line can reduce sagging skin and excess fat.

Recovery and Healing

Scarring is a normal outcome of eyelid surgery, though the surgeon will place the incision as inconspicuously as possible. The placement of scars will be discussed during your consultation. Overall, recovery generally takes 7 to 10 days, though may differ with each individual patient. Results are long-lasting, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help to ensure appealing effects.

Can Men Have Eyelid Surgery Combined With Other Procedures?

Yes. Other procedures often performed along with an eyelid lift include:

Insurance Guidelines

If you are undergoing eyelid surgery to improve your field of vision, insurance may cover the procedure. Otherwise, eyelid lifts are considered a cosmetic procedure, and the patient is responsible for payment.
