For many men, both the upper and lower eyelids are prone to the effects of aging.
A common plastic surgery procedure performed for men is eyelid reduction (blepharoplasty).
Blepharoplasty is one of the more complex and detailed surgeries to perform correctly. As men get older the upper lid develops a hooding of skin combined with bulging fat that can produce a heaviness of the eyelid. There are cases when this can actually affect your vision. The effects of aging of the lower eyelid is when the support tissues thin out and produce bulging lower lid fat and excess of skin leaving many males looking constantly tired.
A blepharoplasty (eyelid reduction) can address each of these components by carefully removing any excess skin and fat as well as tightening the tissues which provide support to the deeper eyelid structures. Depending on the surgery you are having this is either performed under a local or general anaesthetic: and is either a day surgery or overnight procedure.
If you are getting an upper eyelid blepharoplasty this can, on occasion, be performed in our office surgery facility rather than a hospital.
Benefits of eyelid surgery include:
- Restoration of a youthfully attractive appearance.
- Refreshed appearance of eyes.
- May improve vision.
- May improve confidence and self-esteem.
