Male Aesthetic Surgery: Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharopasty) is a very popular procedure and is great for taking years off someone's appearance.

It is also useful in making one look less fatigued by eliminating those "bags" from under the eyes.

How is it Done?

Male Eyelid SurgeryEyelid surgery can be performed in the office or hospital. You can go home the same day.

Skin and fat (pockets of fat are what makes the eyes look puffy) are removed from the upper lids and the incision closed near the natural skin crease of the eyelids so it will be well hidden. (The upper eyelid skin tends to heal exceptionally well.) The lower lids are done in a similar way. The incisions can be made just under the eyelashes where they too will be well hidden. In some patients, the fat can be removed from inside the lower lids and thereby leave no external traces at all.
Following the procedure, you will have a younger, fresher looking appearance!

What Happens After My Surgery?

Ice packs are applied immediately to reduce swelling. The eyelids can remain visibly swollen and bruised for up to two weeks. Sutures are removed after a few days and one can resume normal activity relatively quickly.


Will Eyelid Surgery affect my vision?

No. Eyelid Surgery has no effect on vision or the eyeball. However, I would recommend that all patients see their eye doctor before this surgery to make sure they have no underlying visual problems.

I can't see because my eyelids are hanging over my eyes. Am I a candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

Definitely. The removal of upper eyelid skin and fat will solve your problem. In most cases health insurance will cover the cost of this procedure.

I have to look good for my job. How much time off should I take from work?

Allow two weeks for the swelling and bruising to subside before returning to work.
