Is An Eyelid Lift Different for Men?
While the fundamentals are the same the aesthetic is different. Every surgery is customized, and gender, ethnic look, and your goals are critical to consider. In general, the surgery is a bit more conservative in men, and browlifts, which are often performed in women at the same time as the eyelid lift in women, are not common in men. Guys tend to have thicker skin than women as well as a richer blood supply than female facial skin. As a result, men are at a greater risk for hematoma (pooling of blood) after surgery which can lead to more scarring if surgery isn’t done correctly.
As your surgeon, it’s my job to ensure you’ll achieve the results you want while maintaining your masculine features. My suggestion for any guy that’s seeking cosmetic procedures is that they find a surgeon with extensive experience performing surgeries on men. While before and after photos can help you determine projected results, it is also a good idea to ask your surgeon how often they perform surgeries for men.
