As a man, you may begin to notice the signs of aging in the area around your eyes. This area is often one of the first places fine lines and sagging skin becomes apparent. If you are unhappy with the way your facial appearance has been aging, you may want to consider cosmetic rejuvenation of your eyes, which can have a refreshing effect on your entire facial appearance. Eyelid surgery is one of the most popular plastic surgeries among male patients.
Rates of cosmetic procedures have been rising among men in recent years. These cosmetic treatments – both surgical and minimally invasive – can have a positive impact on your self-assurance, which in turn can benefit your confidence at work, with friends and in all aspects of your life.
When the American Society of Plastic Surgeons compared cosmetic surgery statistics by gender in 2015, they found that 30,000 men underwent eyelid surgery that year, making it the number 2 procedure among men (nose reshaping was number 1). Eyelid surgery restores a younger appearance by addressing the following issues:
- Puffy upper eyelid skin
- Saggy eyelids
- Bags beneath your eyes
- Deep tear troughs
- Lines beneath your lower eyelids
If your eyes have taken on these characteristics, you may feel like you look more tired or older than you actually are. Friends and colleagues may ask you whether you are tired or angry, when you don't feel that way at all. It can be frustrating to feel like your face is aging you in this way. Fortunately, eyelid surgery and other facial rejuvenation procedures can effectively restore a more youthful appearance.
