What Are the Different Types of Eyelid Surgery for Men?

Eyelid surgery can help men eliminate the extra eyelid skin, muscle, or fat and tighten it to restore their youthful appearance. On some occasions, you need surgery on the upper and lower eyelids. Like women, droopy, wrinkled, or baggy eyelids are huge turn-offs for men. These are the main reasons men consider eyelid surgery to rejuvenate their look.

Many people are unaware of the different types of eyelid surgeries for men. Knowing the types of surgeries will help you determine which one suits you. These include blepharoplasty, ptosis repair, and a brow lift.

Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty

Eyelift surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, elevates the position of the upper eyelid margin. A plastic surgeon tightens the muscle and tendon to elevate the eyelid during this procedure.

Men sometimes undergo blepharoplasty surgery if the heavy, excessive skin weighs down the upper eyelid, making it sag.

This procedure is perfect for men who have the following issues:

  • Extra muscle or fat in the upper eyelid is causing puffiness.
  • Eyelid wrinkles due to excess skin.
  • Folds in the eyelid because of sagging skin.
  • Droopy eyelids.
  • Eye bags below eyelids.

Blepharoplasty is an effective surgery for removing or repositioning fat to remove puffiness and trim the excess skin.

Ptosis Repair 

Typically, ptosis is a droopy upper lid that partly covers the pupil. It can lead to a tired or disheveled appearance and may even obstruct vision. Ptosis repair surgery can give men a more youthful and rejuvenated look and improve their sight.

During the procedure, a surgeon delicately lifts the upper eyelids by working on the eyelid muscles that often weaken with age. Repairing the ptosis internally without making any incision over the eyelid is possible.

Brow Lift

These days, many men seek help in rejuvenating their eyelids through brow lifts. The improvement with this procedure is striking.

There are numerous approaches to carrying out brow lift procedures. A surgeon can lift the eyebrows laterally or entirely through an endoscopic method.

The surgeon creates an incision over the scalp or along the hairline. There are various criteria to decide on one particular surgical procedure over the other.
