3 Reasons Why Men Should Undergo Eyelid Surgery
- Posted on: May 17 2023
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is quickly becoming one of the most commonly requested facial surgeries by men. Whether it’s for functionality purposes, due to drooping eyelids that obstruct vision, or cosmetic reasons to achieve a more awake appearance, eyelid surgery can help to address early signs of aging and correct wrinkles, loose skin, dark circles, and bags beneath the eyes. Eyelid surgery at Azul® Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Spa reduces the appearance of heavy, tired eyes and turns them into bright, youthful eyes. Here are some reasons why men should consider undergoing eyelid surgery.
1. Look Well-Rested and Refreshed
We all have days where we stay up too late or we’re up before the sun, making our appearance that next day look a little bit different than usual—puffy eyes, dark circles, drooping eyelids. For some people though, this is a common, everyday appearance. You may have tried the new “it” cream or gel patches to fix your appearance, and while they may work as a quick fix, these treatments won’t last forever. Plus, they’ll just become costly over time. Dark circles, puffy eyes, and drooping eyelids are not something that you want or need to live with forever. With eyelid surgery, you can achieve a well-rested and refreshed appearance while still looking natural and like yourself!
2. Minimal Recovery Time
Eyelid surgery is a relatively quick, low-risk procedure that uses local anesthesia. Your facial features and the extent of tissue laxity present determines the length of time the surgery takes; however, blepharoplasty typically takes one to two hours to perform. After surgery, you may experience bruising and swelling that can last around seven days. It’s recommended that you take one week off to allow for proper healing, and normal activities may be resumed after you get clearance from your doctor, which is typically 10 to 14 days after surgery.
3. Long-Lasting Results
While the length of results varies from patient to patient due to the individual’s lifestyle, most patients who undergo upper blepharoplasty can expect their results to last five to seven years. Patients who undergo lower eyelid surgery will most likely not need another surgery and can expect their results to last for a long period of time. By choosing a cosmetic surgeon who has extensive knowledge and experience with facial cosmetic enhancements, you can look forward to natural, subtle results that allow you to have a well-rested and younger facial appearance.
