Eyelid Surgery for Men

New York City (NYC), Manhattan and all of New York (NY)

Have you noticed that people around you are treating you different recently? Do people ask if you are tired or angry even when you are feeling fine? Have people you meet started to treat you as if you were old? Perhaps a friend or family member has even come out and told you that you are looking older than you used to. If so, your eyelids may be to blame. Our eyes are one of the first places to show age, making us look tired, angry, or old, no matter how energetic and happy we feel.

But you don't have to live with aged or tired-looking eyes. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is one of the most popular procedures for men because it is effective at dramatically reducing some of the signs of age. To learn more about how it may be able to help you, please call or email Dr. George Lefkovits for a personal consultation today.

Changes in the Eye Region

When young, a man's eyes hold much of his strength, but with age this can change. A man's eyelids can begin to sag, creating a tired appearance. Excess skin and fat may accumulate in the upper and lower lids. The upper lid can grow puffy and hood the eye, while the lower lid can grow puffy and saggy. Dark circles under the eye may become deeper and more permanent.

In addition, the brows can begin to sag or permanently contract, creating an angry expression. Crow's feet and other wrinkles may become visible. These can combine to make a man look old beyond his years and can seriously affect both personal and professional relationships.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Eyelid surgery seeks to correct the changes in the eyelids that create a tired, angry, and aged appearance. New York plastic surgeon Dr. George Lefkovits typically performs eyelid surgery in his fully equipped, state-of-the-art surgicenter under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation. The surgery removes excess skin and fat from both the upper and lower lids if necessary. Sometimes, fat from the lower lid can be relocated to address hollowness under the eyes.

The upper lid incision is well-concealed in the upper eyelid crease. The lower lid incision may be placed either just below the lashes or on the inside of the eyelid (known as the transconjuctival approach).

Recovery from Eyelid Surgery

You may have to take the first few days off from work after surgery, perhaps until the stitches are removed at 4-5 days. Your eyes may initially be sensitive to light, may tear up, or be dry. There will be swelling and discoloration of the eyelids, but once the stitches are removed, makeup can be used to cover up the discoloration. Avoid sun exposure to the bruised areas to prevent permanent discoloration. Your incisions will typically heal well, becoming very subtle, almost unnoticeable.

Complementary Procedures

Aging in the eye area is complex, and to get the optimal results from your surgery, Dr. Lefkovits may recommend complementary procedures. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can reduce furrowing in the brows and the appearance of crow's feet. A forehead lift can reduce sagging of the brows. Laser resurfacing can also be used to reduce fine wrinkles around the eyes or on the eyelids.
