There has been a spike in interest for cosmetic surgery of all kinds from men in recent years. Many believe this is due to the spread of cultural acceptance surrounding body improvement over the last decade among both men and women. One area where we are seeing a definitive increase when it comes to men seeking cosmetic surgery is with eyebrow- and eyelid-lifts.
An increasingly competitive job market is what some experts believe is driving the popularity of the surgery among men. The eyes are the windows to the soul, as they say, and they often show signs of aging before other parts of the body.
In addition to the climate in the workplace, the dating world has turned to online images and apps that feature a few lines of text and a prominent profile image. That one image can mean the difference between a left or right swipe and a date! Men and women alike seem to be feeling the pressure to look their best in photos as the world becomes an increasingly digital place.
What Can an Eyelid-Lift Fix?
An eyelid-lift, or blepharoplasty, involves removing excess skin or fat deposits from the upper, lower or both eyelids. Not only can it rejuvenate the eyes and create a younger, fresher look, but it can also improve vision if the upper eyelid had begun to sag and block some of the line of sight. When the surgery is performed on the lower lids, it can help with puffy eyes and in some cases dark circles, as well.
The surgery is relatively simple, and recovery time is quick. The surgery itself only takes 45 to 90 minutes depending on how much work needs to be done, and the small scars from the incisions are hidden in the creases of the lids. The stitches are removed after about a week on average, and most patients return to work in only five to 10 days.
