Enhance Aesthetics and Functionality

From an aesthetic standpoint, the procedure can improve the appearance of droopy or sagging eyelids, reduce the appearance of under-eye bags, and create a more youthful and refreshed look. Also, eyelid surgery can address functional concerns, such as vision impairment caused by excess skin or fat around the eyes.

What is Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery is a surgical procedure that addresses drooping or sagging eyelids to improve your overall appearance and manage any associated vision problems. Depending on your specific needs, this procedure may be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. Eyelid surgery can also address excess fat deposits underneath the eyes that can create a puffy or tired appearance.

The results of eyelid surgery can be very long-lasting and should offer a younger, invigorated look. In the case of vision impairment, blepharoplasty can lift and tighten drooping eyelids that may hinder you from seeing clearly, especially your peripheral vision.

What Can Eyelid Surgery Do For Men?

In 2015, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, approximately 30,000 American men elected to undergo eyelid surgery, making it the second most commonly performed cosmetic procedure for men. For cosmetic or vision impairment concerns, eyelid surgery can help men look and feel their absolute best, giving them an edge in nearly every aspect of their lives.

In addition, shifting social norms now include a much greater acceptance of men investing in their appearance to help improve self-esteem and quality of life. As a result, more men than ever are now seeking plastic surgery procedures like blepharoplasty to provide the boost of self-confidence they need to put their best foot forward in their careers and personal lives.

  • This procedure has helped many men achieve the following:
  • Improved appearance of crow’s feet and other eye area wrinkles
  • Reduced under-eye puffiness
  • A tighter, firmer, and more refreshed look and feel of the eye area
  • Improved vision issues related to drooping eyelids

Is the Eyelid Surgery Procedure Different for Men?

The eyelid surgery procedure is not significantly different for men than for women. However, men may require a slightly different approach due to differences in facial anatomy. For example, men tend to have thicker skin and more prominent brow bones than women, which can affect the surgical technique used during the procedure.

Additionally, men may have different goals and expectations for the outcome of the surgery than women. For instance, men may want to maintain a more masculine appearance and avoid an overly "feminine" look. A skilled and experienced plastic surgeon will consider these factors and customize the procedure to meet the individual needs and goals of each patient, regardless of gender.

How Long Will My Eyelid Surgery Results Last?

Most patients will see the results of their blepharoplasty by about six weeks post-surgery. Results from eyelid surgery are long-term and can last up to 15 years or more, depending on your specific procedure. To prolong your results, it is vital to maintain a healthy lifestyle and daily practices to delay the natural aging process. This includes:

  • Proper sun protection
  • A daily skincare regimen
  • Diet and exercise

How much will my eyelid surgery cost? Prices starting at $4,000

The cost of Tampa eyelid surgery can vary greatly depending on the complexity of your case. While health insurance companies usually do not cover this surgery because it is considered a cosmetic enhancement procedure, exceptions may be made if the surgery is necessary to restore eye function. It is important to note that the total cost of the procedure may include:

  • Anesthesia fees
  • Operating room costs
  • Compression garments for post-surgery
  • Surgeon fees
  • Other miscellaneous fees

Blood tests or other pre-operative testing, medical clearance exams, and prescription medications may also affect the cost of the procedure. The cost may also be influenced by factors such as:
