Droopy upper eyelids or bags under the eyes not only look unsightly and make the patient appear older than he actually is.
Droopy eyelids may also interfere with the patients vision. Eyelid lift effectively addresses these problems.
As men grow older, the eyelid skin stretches, the muscles around the eyes weaken, and more fat accumulates (“bags”) under the eyes. Eyelid lift removes excess skin, fat and muscle around the eye area. Eyelid lift surgery can enhance your appearance and self-confidence, but it will not dramatically alter your appearance. Some people have eyelid surgery to correct problems that are a result of aging, while others have inherited traits that cause them to seek treatment earlier in life.
Ideal male candidates for eyelid lift are those with visible signs of aging around the eye area, are physically healthy, and have realistic expectations about the eyelid lift procedure. Eyelid lift surgery may be performed as a “day case,” although a short hospital stay may be necessary. Depending on the case, the patient may require local or general anaesthetic. Scarring is an inevitability of eyelid lift surgery, although Dr. Merten will make every effort to keep the scars as minimal as possible.
