Your eyes are one of your most attractive and noticeable features. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, may be your best option if you hope to restore the open, vital, engaging facial look you had in the past – but this surgery must be performed with exceptional care.
Men have thicker, heavier skin than women, and when the eyelids start to sag, the results can have a big effect on the overall facial appearance. Droopy, saggy eyelids make you appear older, tired, or angry. Dr. Heil at Premier Plastic Surgery in Pittsburgh, has made male plastic surgery a big focus of his work.
There is a subtle, but significant improvement in facial appearance that can be achieved with eyelid surgery. The benefits include:
With years of experience in treating men, Dr. Heil has the meticulous surgical skills to restore your eyelids to a more youthful open look without creating a wide-eyed or “worked on” appearance – as can occur when plastic surgeon excises too much eyelid skin. Even a millimeter off is too much.
If you are ready to restore your eyelids, whether top, bottom, or both, we invite you to find out more about Dr. Heil, and how he gained his reputation for excellence in male eye surgery.
If your upper lids are drooping, it has a big effect on your facial expressions. Droopy lids tend to make you appear tired and older – but upper eyelid surgery, when performed by a top male facial plastic surgeon, makes it possible to restore the refreshed, healthy look that is so appealing.
The procedure is performed under intravenous sedation and requires only about an hour to complete. The excess skin and fat is carefully removed, and the eyelid stitched back together with tiny sutures.
The incision is in the crease of the lid and is virtually invisible once you have healed.
Men’s eyelids are heavier and thicker than a woman’s. It is important that you have a surgeon who is familiar with the male facial structure and removes only the appropriate quantity of skin and tissue to achieve a look that looks like you – just younger and refreshed. Recovery time is about two weeks to resolve any remaining bruising or swelling.
Dr. Heil has gained a well-earned reputation for excellence as a male facial plastic surgeon. Male skin, facial structure, and eyelids differ from women’s.
Dr. Heil’s experience in addressing the concerns of men has made him the premier plastic surgeon for men in the Pittsburgh area.
