A youthful glow is a fleeting gift that the aging population actively seeks whether they like to
admit it or not. Often times, the first signs of aging are the development of wrinkles around the
eye region and saggy eyelids that cause people to look more tired and older than they actually
are. This is most especially true to men than women due to heavier muscles around the face and
Male blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery for men) is one of the most popular plastic surgery
procedures for men that gives them the power to wind the clock a few years back by tightening
the sagging skin around the eye region.
WHAT ARE THE SIGNS THAT YOU’RE RIPE FOR BLEPHAROPLASTY?
If you’re 35 years old and above who is experiencing the following symptoms, you know you’re
an ideal candidate to undergo the procedure:
- Wrinkles underneath or around eyes
- Puffiness and dark spots beneath the eyelids
- Sagging upper eyelids
- Excess skin in the lower eyelids
So you have checked off all the symptoms above and have decided to have the procedure to
reverse the appearance of aging and gain the confidence you once had. It is best to start by
setting an appointment with one of the most trusted cosmetic surgeon in the industry Dr.
Michael K. Obeng of Miko’s Plastic Surgery. Getting yourself a good doctor with a track record of
amazing results and customer satisfaction will also put you at ease, most especially if you’re a
After undergoing the procedure, you’re then advised to keep your head elevated for the first few
days of recovery to minimize swelling and bruising.
You’re also given a special lubricating ointment and are advised to apply a cold compress
around the region to speed up recovery. A blurry vision and light sensitivity are common at this
stage but prescribed eye drops will minimize such effects. Once the sutures are minimized,
usually a week after the procedure, patients can already go about their normal daily life. The use
of sunglasses is most helpful to protect the eyes from over-exposure or harsh wind which can
cause irritations around the affected region.
HOW MUCH DOES A MALE EYELID SURGERY COST?
A few factors can be considered when trying to get the total fee:
- Surgeon’s fee Surgical
- Facility cost
- Anesthesia fees
- Post surgery garments
- Medical tests
While it is usually instinctive to go with the lower price in almost all purchase decisions, when it
comes to medical procedures, it is wise to choose the best service available to ensure the best
of results in the safest manner. As the old saying goes, “You get what you paid for.”
The postsurgery results take some time to be visible as the swelling subsides in fiveten days
after. Speed up the recovery by religiously following the prescribed postsurgery procedures and
by making sure your eyes are well protected from anything that might cause strain and alike.
Our eyes are the windows to our soul and they should look clear as day and alert as ever to feel
young and confident no matter what because age after all is nothing but a number.
