3 Reasons More Men Are Opting for Eyelid Surgery

Facial plastic surgery is becoming more popular with men as the male population embraces their desire to look more attractive and youthful. Eyelid surgery is amongst the most popular of facial plastic surgeries, with over 200,000 performed in the U.S. in 2018. There are more men opting to undergo blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery than ever before and here are three reasons why.

  1. Professional reasons. It is a competitive market for professionals and many older men are competing against younger men for the same positions. Some men are striving to retain a more youthful, energetic appearance to compete against their younger rivals in the workplace. Reducing eye bags that come with age can be a strategic move to climb the corporate ladder.
  2. Social self-confidence. Men want to look attractive and it is not uncommon for a man in his forties, fifties or beyond to find themselves single. Reducing drooping eyelids or eye bags can make a man look more youthful and attractive to potential partners when they are re-entering the dating scene.
  3. Improved vision. Function can be an excellent reason for eyelid surgery. Not only can sagging skin on the upper eyelid make you look tired and older, it can interfere with vision. Men wanting to see better and look more like their younger, energetic self can achieve both with an upper eyelid lift.

Gone are the days when plastic surgery was considered for women only. Men who want to look their best and retain a more virile, attractive and youthful appearance as they get older can opt to use cosmetic procedures like blepharoplasty to get the look they desire.
