Why Male Plastic Surgery for the Eyelids Is Popular
By Peter Brownrigg on August 11, 2015
When patients meet with Dr. Peter Brownrigg, they know that they will receive exceptional care by one of the leading cosmetic surgeons serving Ottawa. He takes ample time to discuss the pros and cons of every procedure so patients understand what to expect.
We've noticed more male patients come to the practice for cosmetic surgery, particularly facial procedures such as cosmetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) for the upper and lower eyelids. Let's consider this matter in more detail right now.
Plastic Surgery for Men: The Rise in Popularity
Over the years, more and more men have been undergoing cosmetic procedures in order to enhance their appearance. This is part of men understanding the difference that a good overall appearance can make in terms off personal and professional interactions. As more and more men become conscious of these matters, it should come as no surprise that they are turning to cosmetic surgery in order to look their very best.
About Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
The eyelids can be a major source of aesthetic flaws in men as well as women. Drooping upper eyelids can make a person seem tired and haggard, blocking out part of their vision in the process. Similarly, bags under the eyelids can lead to an impression that you haven't had a good night's sleep or that you are worried.
If the eyes are the windows to the soul, the eyelids may be communicating something else that's at odds with how you feel inside.
That's why cosmetic eyelid surgery may be the ideal solution for you and your needs.
Surgery for the Upper Eyelid
During upper eyelid surgery, an incision is made along the fold that naturally occurs on the upper eyelid. This helps keep the incision hidden and the scar barely noticeable even after the patient has healed. Excess skin is removed using this incision so the upper eyelid is not drooping or sagging any longer.
Surgery for the Lower Eyelid
When performing cosmetic eyelid surgery on the lower eyelid, an incision is made below the lower eyelashes in order to keep any scarring hidden. Excess skin and tissue is removed, and facial liposuction may also be considered in order to reduce the size or prominence of any bags beneath the eyes.
The Results of Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
The results of cosmetic eyelid surgery can be quite dramatic, making patients look years younger than they were before, or perhaps simply just more lively and energetic.
If the procedure is performed in order to address vision problems that stem from a drooping lower eyelid, patients will notice a significant improvement in the quality of their vision and field of vision. (Eyelid surgeries performed for this reason may be considered medically necessary in nature rather than cosmetic, depending on the severity of the issue.)
