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.

Rejuvenating Droopy or Puffy Eyes

Your eyes say so much about you, whether you want them to or not. When eyes look puffy or the upper eyelid droops, they send the message that you are tired, old or both. Perpetual puffy or droopy eyes are often caused by changes in the skin from aging, which can be remedied with certain cosmetic procedures. There are both surgical and non-surgical rejuvenation options that can give your eyes a refreshed look.

Dermal Fillers for Drooping Eyes

As the skin loses elasticity and fat under the skin, it can sag and wrinkle. The thin, delicate skin around the eyes is very prone to this aging change. The loss of collagen and fat in the upper and lower eyelid skin can allowing sagging. When this change is slight, dermal fillers can be a non-surgical solution. With the right facial filler, volume can be added under the skin to lift it back into a more youthful firmness, removing wrinkles and sagging that cause droopy upper eyelids and bags under the eyes.

Blepharoplasty or Eyelid Lifts

For more pronounced drooping or puffiness of the eyes, plastic surgery may be needed to achieve more youthful, energetic eyes. Blepharoplasty or an eyelid lift can be used on the upper, lower or both eyelids to rejuvenate their appearance. Small, discrete incisions are used to remove excess skin and elevate tissue. This can tighten and firm the eyelids for refreshed, awake eyes that look years younger.

If your eyes are making you look tired when you still feel energetic, consider visiting an experienced facial plastic surgeon to explore your options. You deserve to feel confident in your appearance at any age.

Anti-Aging Cosmetic Surgeries for Men

Looking youthful, attractive and energetic is important to men. While many more women than men seek plastic surgery, it is becoming more and more common for men to consider cosmetic treatments. A youthful appearance can help men feel more confident in social interactions and can be beneficial when striving to stay competitive in many professional positions. Here are some of the top cosmetic surgeries used by men to look younger and feel more confident in their appearance.

Eyelid Lifts or Blepharoplasty

When the eyelid skin and tissue sags, it can not only make you look older, it also can make the eyes look tired or sad. Blepharoplasty or an eyelid lift can remove excess skin or fat and tighten the eyelids for a more youthful appearance. This procedure can reduce hooded, drooping upper eyelids or bags under the eyes, making men look more energetic.

Brow Lift Surgery

Many men have a furrowed brow that belies their age and can make them look grumpy even when they are in a pleasant mood. A brow lift can smooth away the horizontal forehead lines and frown lines between the eyebrows while lifting the skin and tissue on the brow for a youthful look.


Heavy jowls and sagging tissue or skin under the chin is a tell-tale sign of aging. More than 11,000 men underwent facelift surgery in 2017 to combat drooping skin and tissue on the lower face and neck. A deep plane facelift can help redefine the jawline, reduce neck skin sagging and raise the jowls to help the face appear ten or more years younger.

All men deserve to feel confident when they look in the mirror at any age. If you want to look younger, contact an experienced facial plastic surgeon to discuss male cosmetic surgery options.

Are Your Eyes Making You Look Tired?

Regardless of how you feel, if your eyes have bags underneath them or the upper eyelids droop, you can look like you didn’t get any sleep the night before. Depressions under the eyes create a shadow that is common when you are tired, but often this is occurs when the skin sags or the fat tissue on the upper cheek shifts downward. The upper eyelid skin and tissue can sag, giving the eyes a hooded look that can also make you look sleepy. If you want to look as energetic and youthful as you feel, there are cosmetic options to combat tired eyes.

Eyelid Lifts

One of the most direct approaches to give the eyes a more awake appearance is blepharoplasty or an eyelid lift. On the bottom eyelid, the skin and tissue can be elevated, and excess skin/fat removed to eliminate eye bags; on the top eyelid, the excess skin and fat can be removed to “open” the eye. Either one or both these procedures can help dissipate the tired look from the eyes and make the patient look younger as well.

Upper Cheek Enhancements

If the upper cheek has lost fat or the fat has sagged, it can cause the appearance of bags under the eyes. Replacing the fat that was lost or lifting the fat/tissue to the upper cheek area can reduce eye bags. Fat transfers, dermal fillers or upper cheek implants can be used, or a cheek lift, depending on the patient’s cheek structure and whether they want a surgical or non-surgical approach.

If you are tired of your eyes making you look exhausted or older, schedule a consultation with a qualified facial plastic surgeon or oculoplastic surgeon to discuss the many options to reduce eyebags and drooping on the eyelids to give you a more energetic look.

Top 3 Facial Plastic Surgeries Are Life Changing

There are cosmetic surgeries that are done for personal preference and there are those that can change a person’s life. Deciding to undergo facial plastic surgery is a big decision, but for some, it can have a transforming impact on more than just their appearance. While everyone has the right to want to look their best, there are those that have deformities that affect their self-confidence and even their health. Here are the top three facial plastic surgeries that can be life-changing for the recipients.


Not all “nose jobs” are performed to only change the size or shape of the nose. Many people have a deviated septum that can cause breathing problems, chronic sinus issues, nose bleeds and snoring. Others have a nose valve that has collapsed or a fractured nose that impacts breathing. Rhinoplasty in these circumstances can help improve the health, and the appearance, of the patient.


When the eyelids droop, become puffy or sag, they can make the person look tired, sad or older. It can also impede their vision. Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery can remove fat deposits and excess skin that can impact the appearance and eye sight of the individual. This can make them look more awake, energetic and younger, while improving their vision.

Ear Reconstruction Surgery

Deformed or injured ears can make a large impact on a person’s appearance and self-confidence. It can also impact the hearing, depending on the deformity. Otoplasty or ear reconstruction surgery can change the appearance of the ear, even restoring an ear with cartilage grafting. This procedure can be life-changing in many ways, improving the quality of life for the patient.

Facial plastic surgery can have an enormous impact on a person’s life, whether it is done for medical or aesthetic purposes, or both. It is important to find an experienced plastic surgeon that specializes in facial reconstruction surgeries to get the best results.
