Youthful Masculine Eyes

Roxanne HammondWhat’s a man to do???

Steven Spielberg has nothing on us women when it comes to “special effects”.  We always have a few tricks up our sleeve to give definition to our eyes. Special eye liner, mascara, and a little concealer can go a long way, am I right?!!   But, what’s a man to do?   Where is his bag of tricks?

When a man develops lower lid bags, dark circles and hooding of the upper lids, he loses that youthful definition.  Bottom line – it can make him

appear older and exhausted.  I know, I said it, but please don’t shoot the messenger.  I really am here to help.

If you’re a male, it is down-right impossible to hide droopy, sad, tired looking eyes.   Not to mention how unfair it is to be judged by colleagues and friends as tired and archaic when clearly you’ve still got it!  Simply, attempting to wear sunglasses as a cover-up, even while indoors, is not going to work out.  People will begin to ask questions.

Male celebrities, local TV personalities or even the President of the United States, look good during a television conference or in a photograph because they have a professional make-up artist at their disposal.  Make-up artists, like most females, have learned a few cosmetic tricks to lessen the appearance of an aging eye.  Have you heard of using a peach or white eyeliner to create a corner of the eye lift?  Males can get away with extensive make-up during a TV interview or magazine photograph but typically not in everyday life.   So, again I ask; what’s a man to do?

If eyeliner, mascara and a little concealer are out of the question, I would encourage you to go where many other men have gone before you… Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Clinic in Savoy (Champaign – Urbana area).  There you will meet G.D. Castillo, M.D. FACS, a cosmetic surgeon (an artist really) whose foresight, surgical skill and results are enough to impress even the toughest critic. Over the years I have been privileged to observe as Dr. Castillo restores natural looking, youthful eyes along with the joie de vivre or vitality of the male patient population with a relatively brief procedure called a Blepharoplasty.

This upper and / or lower eye lid surgery can take years off the appearance of the face.  Eyelid surgery will reduce puffiness, dark circles and sagging lids.  Those patients whose upper lids have sagged low enough to actually obscure their vision will also benefit.

At Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Clinic, eye lid surgeries are typically performed under general anesthesia. The recovery time is minimal and most patients are back to work in 3-4 days. The incision lines are hidden in the natural creases of the upper eye lids and are virtually undetectable after a few months. Depending on the needs of the patient, a Blepharoplasty can be combined with other facial procedures, such as laser resurfacing or a face lift to totally rejuvenate the face.

Did you know that rejuvenating the eyes for a male is very different than rejuvenating the eyes of a female?   It is because we are trying to accomplish very different things. The best way to restore a female face and open up the eyes is to raise her brows and natural fold of the upper lids.  We don’t want to raise the brows in a male face. The best way to restore a youthful, alert appearance for a male is to remove lower lid bags and excessive eye lid skin. Removing the lower lid bags will eliminate the dark circles, puffiness and sad, tired eyes.  Excessive skin is usually more severe in the upper lid, forming a heavy fold that drops over normal lid crease, over the upper lid itself and obscures it.  Removing excessive tissue from the upper eye lid will open up the eyes, to create a well-rested, alert appearance.  Dr. Castillo understands the difference between a male and a female Blepharoplasty procedure and the importance of preserving the masculine appearance.

If nothing else in your bag of tricks is working, contact our office (217-359-7508), I know a guy who just might be able to help you.
