Eyelid surgery is not just for women anymore, at least not at the blepharoplasty NYC and Long Island centers of Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York.
In fact, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), blepharoplasty was the second most popular cosmetic surgery procedure performed on male patients in 2011.
Many men opt for eyelid surgery for the same reasons as women: to restore a more youthful, rested appearance by improving sagging upper eyelids and/or puffy under eye bags.
In some cases, men may even seek surgery to improve vision if sagging upper eyelids are interfering with eyesight. For other men, undergoing eyelid surgery is a career move to help them compete in an increasingly competitive job market.
Special Considerations for Male Blepharoplasty Patients
At Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York, we understand that our male patients have different concerns and goals than our female patients when it comes to rejuvenating the eyes.
And while the techniques used for men are essentially the same as for female patients, there are some special considerations which must be taken into account when operating on male patients.
While all patients, male and female, generally want their cosmetic surgery results to appear natural, male patients in particular typically want a more conservative and less obvious change after their eye lift surgery.
Many men are also concerned about obvious scarring on the eyelids since they cannot camouflage scars with makeup as women can.
Also, there are certain characteristics of the brow and eye area which many men consider too feminine and want to avoid, including a high upper eyelid crease and a raised outer brow.
