Eyelid Lift Patient: Watch this patient video as he discusses his procedures with Dr. Jacono to include eyelid surgery, a necklift, and a facelift.
It is no surprise that today, more and more men are seeking cosmetic surgery procedures to help turn back the hands of time. Like their female counterparts, they are becoming more self-aware of their appearance and want to look as young as they can for as long as they can.
Dr. Jacono's practice is seeing on a regular basis, men who are interested in looking less tired and who desire a defined, masculine facial profile. One of the most popular procedure that he frequently recommends to help accomplish their goal is known as a blepharoplasty or eyelid lift surgery for men.

Since men age differently than women their facial goals and surgical procedures need to be different as well. Dr. Jacono understands this and his approach to male eyelid surgery is very different from his female eyelid surgery procedure. His goal is to have a man look as natural and masculine as possible and not to remove too much eyelid skin, muscle and fat that will cause a feminization to the eyelids. He accomplishes this by using advanced less invasive techniques that uses smaller incision that preserves muscle, repositions fat tissue around the eyes, and removes directed amounts of skin. This ensures the end results are not overdone and look natural.
During a male cosmetic eyelid surgery procedure Doctor Jacono has a different approach for the upper and lower eyelids. In upper eyelid surgery Dr Jacono preserves a natural masculine eyelid by only removing the redundant skin and not over-resecting or deepening the upper eyelid crease that makes eyes look more sculpted. He also does not remove fat from the central fat pads of the upper eyelids which is routinely performed in female upper eyelid lifts, only the upper eyelid nasal fat pad that is closer to the nose. He also does not lift the brows in men, because this makes you look surprised and unnatural. By doing this, male upper eyelid surgery can help correct droopy upper eyelids which make you look tired. Besides making you look tired, the eyelids can also make you look older and in some cases interfere with your peripheral vision.
In lower eyelid lifts for men Dr Jacono reduces the swollen, puffy appearing bags from the lower eyelid area. Dr. Jacono’s tailored technique in male lower eye lift surgery involves repositioning the fat bags to the dark circles under the eyes to help keep the eyes from looking hollow and to give a more youthful appearance. This also makes the eyes look less sunken and tired.
In most cases, men’s eyelid surgery does not reduce the small fine lines around the eyes especially when there is sun damage involved. Dr. Jacono addresses this by incorporating laser skin resurfacing, facial fillers and other surgical procedures so that each patient’s goals are met and they look 10 to 15 years younger.

Male Eyelid Surgery Candidates
So who is a good candidate for cosmetic male eyelid surgery? Generally, the best candidates are men who are in their 50’s or older and have begun to notice a tired appearance especially around their eyes and eyelids. The puffiness around their eyes is usually the cause for this tired appearance and it is due to the buildup of fat, as well as the progressive laxity of the skin which is caused by gravity and aging. This accumulation of fat under the eyes is not related to weight gain. It is simply a result in our aging process. Losing weight will not help this problem.
Most people believe that their eyes are their most attractive features. They have been said that our eyes are the gateway to our souls and when aging begins to take that away from us, eyelid surgery is the most reliable and successful way of turning back those hands of time and restoring a more youthful appearance.
