One of the best kept secrets in plastic surgery is that men are getting it more than ever. In fact, men make up one of the fastest growing subsets of plastic surgery patients. And one of the most popular procedures among men is the eyelid lift (known more technically as blepharoplasty).
To be sure, eyelid lift has always been one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures for men. That’s partly because there’s nothing necessarily “gendered” about eyelids. It also has something to do with the fact that blepharoplasty is often considered therapeutic as well as cosmetic.
But as the broader field of plastic and cosmetic surgery catches on with men, the popularity of eyelid lift procedures increases as well.
Why is Eyelid Lift for Men so Popular?
Blepharoplasty for men is able to maintain this popularity for a number of reasons. Those reasons include the following:
- Big Impact: Eliminating excess tissue around the eyelids can make a big difference in the way you look. It might seem like a small change, but the eyes are important and they communicate a lot of information about who you are and how you’re feeling.
- Low Intensity: Especially when compared to other plastic surgery procedures, blepharoplasty is relatively low intensity. The procedure is minimally invasive and patients are home the same day. This means that the benefit to discomfort ratio is quite appealing.
- Personal and Professional Improvement: Being seen in a “youthful” light can have substantial benefits both personally and professionally. An eyelid lift can improve the way you’re perceived by other people, and, therefore, improve the way you interact with them.
Dr. Rostami and Dr. Nazemzadeh both have a great deal of experience treating men who are seeking an eyelid lift procedure.
What Makes an Eyelid Lift for Men Different?
At its most fundamental level, an eyelid lift for men is really not that different from an eyelid lift for women. The procedure will follow the same basic steps and address the same basic issue.
However, the aesthetics of the results might vary based on your overall gender. After all, there are certain eye shapes that are considered more feminine or more masculine than others.
In most cases, an eyelid lift won’t change your overall eye shape. However, blepharoplasty can exert some influence on the way your eyes look (after all, that’s the point of the procedure). Eyelid lift for men is different from a more general eyelid lift in that it is designed to honor the masculine lines and corners of the patient’s original eye shape.
Eyelift Lift is Worth it for Men
There are a large number of benefits to an eyelid lift, many of which are discussed above. That’s why, for many men, an eyelid lift is an excellent investment. Many of our patients have reported a significant increase in confidence and self-esteem once the procedure is complete.
And that doesn’t even touch on improvements to the field of vision that patients often experience or the improvements to the aesthetics of the face. After all, wrinkles around the eyes can cause a significant number of issues and excess skin can impede what you see.
That helps explain why eyelid lift procedures have always been quite popular with men. It’s just that they aren’t alone anymore. Liposuction, tummy tucks, facelifts—they’re all becoming more popular with male patients. As a result, surgeons are tailoring the results to achieve a more masculine final outcome.
In a way, this isn’t all that different from how plastic surgeons proceed normally. After all, the results of any procedure are designed to be tailored to the individual. That means if the individual wants more masculine results, that’s the desired final outcome. What “eyelid lift for men” procedures do is codify it, more or less.
