Male Blepharoplasty Surgery (Eyelid Surgery for Men)
Male blepharoplasty surgery, also known as eyelid surgery for men, is specifically designed to address common aesthetic concerns associated with aging eyes. The surgeons at bodySCULPT®, our AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice in Manhattan, NYC are skilled and experienced in performing this procedure. They focus on ensuring natural-looking results* for our patients.
Male Blepharoplasty in Manhattan for a Refreshed Look
We understand that men have unique aesthetic goals, and we take pride in preserving your masculine features during the surgery, such as maintaining a more level eyebrow and a lower upper eyelid crease. We provide both male upper eyelid surgery and male lower eyelid surgery to successfully address a variety of concerns.
Male blepharoplasty treatment is highly effective in resolving the following conditions:
- Droopiness of the upper eyelids
- Loose, sagging skin in the upper eyelid
- Puffiness or bags under the eyes
- Excess skin and wrinkles in the lower eyelid
- Excess fatty deposits in the upper eyelid
To achieve natural-looking results, our surgeons carefully remove or reposition excess muscle, fat, or skin, effectively correcting drooping eyelids (ptosis) and reducing the appearance of bags under the eyes. This transformative procedure, also known as male double eyelid surgery, includes skin and muscle tightening, as well as smoothing of the line between the eyelid and the cheek. The incisions for the surgery are carefully placed in discreet areas to minimize visible scarring (blepharoplasty scars in men).
We recognize the importance of restoring not only aesthetics but also functionality. If excess tissue of the upper eyelid causes functional visual impairment, we can provide surgery to restore your peripheral vision and overall eye health.
With our expertise in the procedure, we are committed to helping our male patients achieve their desired aesthetic goals while preserving their unique masculine features. Experience the confidence and rejuvenation that corrective blepharoplasty can offer under the care of our skilled and compassionate surgical team.
Personalized Eyelid Surgery for Men
During your initial consultation, our plastic surgeon will conduct a thorough examination of your eyes and eyelids, carefully assessing the degree of drooping in the upper eyelids and the presence of excess skin and fat in the lower eyelids. Aesthetic eyelid surgery typically requires only local anesthesia. To optimize the outcome and address multiple concerns, our surgeon may recommend combining the eyelid lift with complementary procedures like a facelift and/or brow lift surgery.
We prioritize transparency and informed decision-making. Patients are fully informed about the risks and benefits of the treatment, so that they can make well-informed choices. At our reliable surgical practice, our caring surgeons and staff are dedicated to providing end-to-end attention and care, including comprehensive recovery support.
You are a candidate for eyelid surgery for men if you are in good overall health, and have signs of aging around your eyes that you want to remove.You should maintain realistic expectations about the procedure’s outcomes. A consultation with our experienced plastic surgeons will help determine if this surgery aligns with your individual needs and goals.
Male blepharoplasty can provide benefits, including:
- Reduces sagging skin and puffiness around the eyes
- Minimizes under-eye bags and dark circles
- Levels out wrinkles and fine lines
- Restores a refreshed and youthful appearance
Our skilled plastic surgeons employ advanced techniques to achieve natural-looking results. Discreet incisions are made along the natural creases of the eyelids, allowing for minimal visible scarring. Excess skin, fat, and muscle are carefully removed or repositioned to create a smoother, more youthful eye contour.
The procedure is performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, ensuring a comfortable experience for our patients. Most individuals report minimal discomfort during the recovery period, which can be managed with prescribed pain medication.
Following the surgery, some swelling and bruising around the eyes are common but usually subside within a few days. Our caring team will provide post-operative care instructions, including cold compresses and prescribed medications, to help ease any discomfort. Patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities during the initial recovery phase.
While male blepharoplasty provides long-lasting results, it does not stop the natural aging process. However, patients can expect significant and lasting improvements. Adopting a healthy lifestyle and proper skincare routine can help maintain the results.
The procedure is generally safe when performed by an experienced plastic surgeon. As with any surgery, there are potential risks and complications, which will be discussed during your consultation. Our team takes every precaution to ensure your safety and the best possible outcomes.
