The eyes are the “windows to the soul,” and they are often the first facial feature to show signs of aging. Eyelid surgery, medically known as Blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure done to improve the appearance of the eyes. Many men choose to have eyelid surgery because they feel that the heavy, sagging, drooping skin around their eyes gives them an unfair representation of who they really are. Too often, men come in for a consultation because their children or grandchildren have told them that they look “grumpy” – despite the fact that their personalities feel energetic and out-going. Eyelid surgery is used to tighten or remove the skin of the upper eyelids and to remove fatty deposits from the lower eyelids. This surgical procedure can do wonders for men who feel energetic on the inside, but whose outward appearance gives them a very different perception.
Eyelid surgery is a great option for men because it allows for a subtle change to make a very dramatic improvement of the face. Eyelid surgery can be performed as a stand-alone procedure, or it can be combined with a facelift, brow lift, Botox treatments, or laser skin resurfacing for those who are looking to completely change or improve their appearance. Dr. Maurice Khosh, MD, FACS, utilizes perfectly hidden incisions to remove saggy upper eyelid skin. In lower blepharoplasty, Dr. Khosh often places the incision inside the lid in order to avoid more visible scarring. The recovery from eyelid surgery is relatively light, with swelling or bruising resolved within ten days, and most patients return to a full schedule within two weeks.
