Eyelid Surgery for Men

The eyes can be windows to the soul and often provide a glimpse into the life of an individual.  As the years go by many men start to show their age through their eyes.  During the passage of time the eyes often begin to droop and sag giving a man a tired, worn, out expression that may not accurately reflect the youth and energy that lies inside the heart of a person.  With male eyelid surgery men have a chance to recapture some of the appearance that they had in their youth.

What Goes on During an Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a surgery that can give the appearance a dramatic boost even though it only focuses on one area of the body.  Many people who receive eyelid surgery claim that is one of the best and effective plastic surgeries for rejuvenating long forgotten youth.  An eyelid surgery can help reverse the damage done to the eyes that is caused by frowning, squinting, and even smiling. 

The surgery focuses on reversing the loss of elasticity that causes the eyelids to fall during the aging process.  It also helps fix the excess skin that sometimes accumulates around the eyelids making the eyes seem lost and less energetic.  During the surgery an incision is made in the crease of the eyelid.  Depending upon the amount of damage or changes requested the fat is then either moved or redistributed.  The muscles of the eyelid are also reshaped to create a more youthful and energetic appearance.  If wrinkles are present the plastic surgeon can use chemical peels or even lasers to remove wrinkles as long as the incision has been made inside of the eyelid.

Recovery After Eyelid Surgery

Most men do not experience any pain after the eyelid surgery.  In most cases there is only mild discomfort that is easily relieved by compresses and over the counter medication.  The incision usually heals up cleanly leaving no noticeable scaring or evidence of the surgery.  The results of the surgery are usually immediately noticeable which is why it is extremely popular with most men who are looking for ways to improve their appearance with plastic surgery.

Cost of Eyelid Surgery

The cost of eyelid surgery is really the only obvious drawback.  An eyelid surgery could easily cost $6,000 to be performed because of the skill of the surgeon needed to perform such a delicate procedure.  Since eyelid surgery is strictly cosmetic insurance companies will not cover the expense and many doctors will not work out payment plans because the surgery is done in one day.  There are some finance companies that will provide loans to the doctors on your behalf with the interest rate being determined by your credit rating.
