Blepharoplasty is an Excellent Treatment Option for Men
- Posted on: Jan 15 2020
With age, everything changes. However, with the help of modern medicine, many men and women are finding that they have much more power over their aging process than they had imagined. For example, blepharoplasty is an excellent option for permanent eyelid rejuvenation. Of course, the skin continues to age after such a procedure, but it looks younger than it would without the surgical refinement achieved in eyelid rejuvenation surgery.
We most often hear about blepharoplasty as a type of cosmetic surgery. Historically, men have shied away from obtaining cosmetic treatment. Surgeries like facelifts and liposuction were largely regarded for their benefits in helping women maintain a youthful appearance. In recent years, we have seen a new trend. Men, whether to keep up with their female counterparts in terms of perpetual youthfulness or to finally take advantage of treatments that were available to them all along, are showing much more interest in cosmetic procedures like blepharoplasty than previous generations.
Blepharoplasty is a technique that can bring new life into the whole face simply by removing eyelid tissue that has become loose and saggy. When excess skin has become severe, blepharoplasty can even improve vision. The surgical technique used during blepharoplasty may be the same whether the patient is male or female, there are nuances of the face that a skilled physician like Dr. Gregory Vipond understands well.
In order to close fully, the upper eyelids require a certain amount of tissue. However, too much tissue makes the eyes look heavy or tired. Sometimes, the excessiveness of skin on the upper eyelid can make a person appear angry when he isn’t. The perception of a man with ultra-heavy eyelids may be that he is serious or unfriendly. Removing the right amount of tissue from the upper eyelids allows the male face to appear more open and friendly, more alert and youthful.
Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty
Lower blepharoplasty is often performed to reduce puffiness that has resulted from the loosening of superficial eyelid tissue. In this area, skin may be removed along with a small amount of tissue from the fat pads that are located under the eye. By removing extra skin, the fat that remains beneath the surface is held in place so well that dark circles and puffiness disappear.
