Give your eyes some attention

If you’re male and still wondering about reaping the benefits of cosmetic surgery, you’re behind the curve: recent studies confirm that more and more men are getting comfortable with the idea of cosmetic procedures, and more and more of them are going ahead with it. And what they’re going for may surprise you.

In one such study, men were asked about what worried them most about their appearance. Unsurprisingly, hair comes out on top, with 60% of men surveyed saying that their hair (or lack of it) bothered them most.

The eyes have it

As far as the body goes, the most important parts – tying at 44% each – were the skin and the eye area. A mere 22% of men were annoyed by the state of their chin and neck, while distinguishing forehead wrinkles – one of the biggest bugbears among women – only troubled 19% of men.

Clearly, there’s a pattern forming here: while men are less concerned about looking more mature (and actually liking the odd character-forming wrinkle here and there), they hate looking tired – and the quickest and most effective solution for that is  blepharoplasty, otherwise known as an eyelid lift.

What is a blepharoplasty?

Typically, an eyelid lift is performed under a local anaesthetic, but if a more extensive procedure is required it may be necessary to have a general anaesthetic. In an upper eyelid lift, an incision in the crease of the brow is made before excess skin and any fat is removed. The cut is then closed with fine stitches and, when healed, the scar should be hidden by the natural fold of the eyelid.

There are two main approaches to a lower eyelid lift, which differ in the place the incisions are made, but in both cases, excess fat and skin are removed, and the muscles in the area are tightened.
