Male Eye Lid Surgery
Centrally located in Southampton and serving Philadelphia, Bucks, and Montgomery Counties, the Kole Plastic Surgery Center performs eyelid surgery for men desiring plastic surgery.
Known by the technical name blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery can target the upper lid, lower lid, or both. Eyelid surgery for men can be effective at removing wrinkles and lines in the lids and surrounding tissues, giving you the appearance of being well rested and alert. Surgery can remove deposits of fat that make the eyes look puffy and sad, as well as also eliminate “bags under the eyes.” Dr. Kole can also trim away sagging or loose skin that interrupts the pleasing contour of the eyelids. Eyelid surgery can significantly rejuvenate your appearance and refresh your conception of your identity.
Special Considerations for Male Eyelid Surgery
While the techniques for performing cosmetic eyelid surgery on a man are fundamentally the same as those used on a woman, several caveats should be considered prior to undergoing blepharoplasty—or any other procedure around the eyes.
Most men prefer to avoid a high and deep upper eyelid crease. This high eyelid crease is desirable in women who apply eye shadow and cosmetics in this area. For most men with a high eyelid crease, this gives them an unwanted feminine look.
Men also wish to avoid an upward sweep or flare of the lateral outer brow. A masculine brow follows a more horizontal and lower position than a female eyebrow. Female brows are typically arched and in a higher position than in men.
Most men insist on minimal to no external scarring of their lower eyelids. In women, this lower eyelid scarring is camouflaged with makeup. In general, women are more concerned about fine eyelid wrinkling than men are.
Noninvasive procedures such as Botox®, fillers, chemical peels, and laser resurfacing are also more popular in women than men.
A natural-appearing final result is of paramount importance to both men and women alike. The “plastic,” “unnatural,” or “done” look of having undergone cosmetic surgery that was so popular years ago is no longer in vogue. Most men wish to look refreshed and more youthful and energetic, rather than simply younger.
As with all cosmetic surgical procedures, achieving a natural look requires years of training and experience as well as a complete understanding of the differences and the subtle nuances between men and women in respect to the eyelid area. Dr. Kole will discuss your specific goals for eyelid surgery before planning the operation. You are most likely to be satisfied with your results if you maintain realistic expectations for your eyelid procedure.
