Why Get an Upper Eyelid Lift For Men?

An Upper Eyelid Lift, medically known as Blepharoplasty, is an effective procedure for men who wish to rejuvenate their facial appearance. Many men choose to undergo this surgery when they begin to notice that their eyes are not reflecting their inner vitality, often due to aging or genetic factors. Here are some key reasons why getting an Upper Eyelid Lift can be beneficial for men:

Combat Aging Signs

As we age, the skin around our eyes loses its elasticity, causing droopy, sagging eyelids that can make us look older than we are. An Upper Eyelid Lift can help reverse these signs of aging, restoring a youthful and revitalized appearance.

Improve Vision

Excess skin on the upper eyelids can sometimes obstruct vision, a condition known as dermatochalasis. Blepharoplasty can alleviate this issue by removing the excess skin, resulting in a clearer line of sight.

Boost Self-Confidence

Physical appearance can significantly impact personal confidence. By rejuvenating the area around the eyes, an Upper Eyelid Lift can help enhance self-esteem, allowing you to step into any room or situation with an extra dose of assurance.

Quick Recovery Time

Compared to many other cosmetic procedures, the recovery time for an Upper Eyelid Lift is relatively short. Most patients can resume normal activities within a week, making it a convenient option for those with busy lifestyles.

Benefits of the Upper Eyelid Lift with Ptosis

Now that we’ve discussed why you might consider an Upper Eyelid Lift, it’s time to delve deeper into the additional benefits of this procedure when combined with Ptosis. By addressing both the cosmetic and functional aspects of your eyelids, an Upper Eyelid Lift with Ptosis offers a comprehensive solution to rejuvenate your appearance and improve your quality of life. Here are some of the key benefits that you can look forward to with this procedure:

Enhanced Aesthetic Appeal

An Upper Eyelid Lift with Ptosis not only lifts droopy eyelids, but it also yields a more open, alert, and youthful look. The procedure can significantly reduce the tired or aged appearance that drooping eyelids often impart.

Correction of Muscle Weakness

Ptosis is often caused by a weakness in the muscle that lifts the eyelid. By addressing this muscle weakness, an Upper Eyelid Lift with Ptosis can provide a long-lasting solution and prevent the droop from reoccurring.

Improved Eye Function

People with ptosis often unconsciously raise their eyebrows to lift their sagging eyelids, leading to facial fatigue and headaches. By correcting this issue, the procedure can improve the overall functionality of your eyes and prevent these discomforts.

Boosted Confidence

Knowing that your eyes accurately reflect your inner vitality and positivity can provide an immeasurable boost to your self-esteem. With the rejuvenation obtained from an Upper Eyelid Lift with Ptosis, you can engage with the world more confidently.

Customized Approach

The Upper Eyelid Lift with Ptosis procedure is tailored to your specific needs and aesthetic goals. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, I ensure that each procedure is personalized to yield the most natural and desirable results.

Who is a Good Candidate?

A good candidate for an Upper Eyelid Lift with Ptosis is typically someone who is in good overall health and has realistic expectations about the results. This procedure can be highly beneficial for individuals who experience droopy eyelids due to aging or genetic factors, those who suffer from impaired vision due to excessive skin on the eyelids, and those who wish to rejuvenate their facial appearance. It is also an ideal choice for individuals who frequently experience headaches or facial fatigue due to the strain of raising drooping eyelids.

On the contrary, this procedure might not be suitable for individuals with certain medical conditions such as dry eyes, high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or glaucoma. These conditions may increase the risk of complications during or after the surgery. As with any medical procedure, it’s crucial to have a comprehensive consultation to assess your individual circumstance and suitability. Every person is unique, so your treatment plan should be as well. Together, we’ll explore your goals, review your medical history, and determine the best path forward for you.

Precautions and Contraindications

  • Prior Medical Conditions: It’s crucial to disclose your complete medical history, including any existing health conditions like diabetes, hypertension, or eye-related issues like glaucoma or dry eye, as they could potentially complicate the procedure and the recovery process.
  • Medication Review: Be sure to inform me about any medications, vitamins, or supplements you’re currently taking. Some of these could increase the risk of bleeding or interact negatively with the anesthesia.
  • Smoking: Smoking can impede the healing process. As such, you’ll be advised to quit smoking at least a few weeks before and after the procedure.
  • Realistic Expectations: While an Upper Eyelid Lift with Ptosis can significantly enhance your appearance and eye function, it’s important to have realistic expectations. The procedure can provide improvement but not perfection.
  • Follow Post-Op Instructions: Adhering to the post-operative instructions will play a vital role in your recovery and the success of your surgery. This will include guidance about rest, use of prescribed medications, and when to resume normal activities.
  • Regular Follow-ups: To ensure an optimal recovery and the best possible results, regular follow-ups after the surgery are necessary. This allows for monitoring of your healing progress and early detection of any potential complications.

What to Expect From Your Procedure

The journey towards your Upper Eyelid Lift with Ptosis is a comprehensive process that includes not only the procedure itself, but also the period leading up to the surgery and the recovery afterwards. It’s important to know what to expect at each step of the journey to ensure the best possible outcome. Here, I will walk you through what you can anticipate from the procedure, beginning with the initial consultation through to the recovery and follow-up stages.

The Procedure: Step by Step


On the day of the surgery, we will once again go over the procedure to ensure you're comfortable and prepared. You will be given a local anesthetic to numb the area around your eyes, ensuring a pain-free experience.


Once the anesthetic takes effect, the procedure begins with a careful incision along the natural crease of the upper eyelid. This location ensures minimal visible scarring.

Correction and Lift

After making the incision, I will correct the muscle causing the ptosis. Once this is done, excess skin and fat deposits will be removed to provide a natural-looking lift to the upper eyelid.


The incision will then be delicately stitched closed, ensuring the healing process goes smoothly and leaves minimal scarring.


Following the procedure, it's essential to have someone drive you home as your vision may be blurred from the ointment applied to your eyes. We'll provide you with detailed post-operative care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. These will include how to care for your eyes, medications to apply or take orally, and when to schedule follow-up appointments.

Follow Up

Your follow-up visits will allow me to monitor your progress and ensure the healing process is proceeding as expected. It's essential to attend these follow-ups and report any unusual symptoms promptly.

About Post-Treatment Care

Proper post-treatment care is a vital part of ensuring a successful recovery and achieving the best possible results from your Upper Eyelid Lift with Ptosis. As your surgeon, I want to ensure your recovery is as comfortable as possible and your results are in line with your expectations. To facilitate this, I am going to share with you some of the key aspects of post-treatment care that you will need to follow. Each of these steps plays a crucial role in your recovery journey and contributes significantly to the outcome of your procedure.

Swelling Management

In the initial days following your surgery, you may experience some swelling and bruising. This is a normal part of the healing process. You can manage this by using cold compresses and keeping your head elevated as much as possible.

Rest and Recuperation

Allow your body to heal by getting plenty of rest, especially in the first week after surgery. Avoid strenuous activities, including heavy lifting and strenuous exercise.

Follow Dietary Guidelines

Proper nutrition can aid in faster recovery. You’ll be advised on what to include in your diet and which foods or drinks to avoid.

Eye Care

It’s important to keep your eyes clean and lubricated while they heal. You’ll be prescribed eye drops and ointments to help with this. Ensure you apply these as directed.

Avoid Eye Strain

Straining your eyes can interfere with the healing process. For the first few weeks after surgery, avoid activities that can tire your eyes, such as reading, watching TV, or spending long hours on the computer.

Protection From Sun and Wind

Protect your eyes from the sun and wind by wearing sunglasses when you go outside. Exposure to these elements can cause discomfort and slow down your recovery.
