Right for you?
Am I a Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
As with any surgery, candidates must be in good overall health. Patients who smoke and/or those with medical conditions that interfere with the body’s ability to heal are typically better candidates for non-surgical interventions.
Dr. Emer offers advanced non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation treatments including dermal fillers, laser skin resurfacing, Ultherapy, Thermage, Renuvion, and/or InMode Accutite. These treatments can provide significant improvements for patients with early signs of aging and/or mild skin laxity.
Men experiencing a greater loss of skin elasticity and/or undesirable fat accumulation around the eyes are likely ideal candidates for male blepharoplasty. Additionally, eyelid surgery can be an optimal treatment for patients seeking longer-lasting, more dramatic improvements than can be accomplished with non-surgical treatments.
Male Eyelid Surgery Consultation: The First Step
You will meet with us for a consultation to begin the male eyelid surgery treatment process. This is an important step, as it allows us to determine your candidacy and the ideal treatment approach for resolving your cosmetic concerns. It is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about treatment options and procedure details.
During the consultation, we will assess your facial structure and tissue and will review your medical history. We will also talk with you in-depth about your desired outcome, so we can identify the best surgical approach for your needs.
We want every patient to feel confident about their decision to undergo eyelid surgery. We will explain in detail what to expect on the day of your surgery and throughout your recovery.
What Does Eyelid Surgery for Men Involve?
Anesthesia will be given to you at the start of your procedure. When it has taken effect, your surgery will begin by making the required incisions. We can then reposition fat, tighten muscles, and/or remove skin as needed to achieve an aesthetic outcome. We will close the incisions to complete the procedure.
Eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure, so you will return home the same day. However, you will need to plan to have someone drive you.
We will provide aftercare instructions that you must follow to support an optimal recovery. Expect to rest for several days after eyelid surgery and to restrict your activities as directed.
Our Approach to Eyelid Surgery for Men
Eyelid surgery for men requires refined surgical techniques and advanced knowledge of male facial anatomy. It also involves careful consideration of creating a harmonious, masculine facial appearance. Eyelid surgery is frequently combined with additional facial plastic surgeries and/or non-surgical treatments to achieve natural looking results.
Upper Blepharoplasty for Men
Men have fuller, heavier eyelids than women, so drooping is quite common in the upper lids. However, removing too much skin can produce an overdone look and/or effeminate eyelid contours.
To ensure the most aesthetic results possible, we frequently advise male patients to combine upper eyelid surgery with a brow lift. Pairing upper blepharoplasty and brow lift procedures allows the doctor to be more conservative with skin removal in the upper eyelids, yet still provide noticeable lifting and smoothing across the upper face.
This combination is also recommended for many men since the male brow line is generally lower than the female brow line. A low brow line can emphasize the effects of drooping upper eyelids.
Lower Blepharoplasty for Men
Our surgical approach is tailored to the patient’s unique anatomy. A technique called transconjunctival blepharoplasty with fat repositioning or a technique called transcutaneous blepharoplasty with fat repositioning is used when performing lower eyelid surgery for men.
The transcutaneous blepharoplasty approach is typically better for patients with more advanced signs of aging who will require skin removal to accomplish the desired outcome. The transconjunctival blepharoplasty technique can be ideal for patients with healthy skin elasticity. Dr. Sanan will explain which approach is best for you during your consultation.
What Is the Cost of Eyelid Surgery for Men?
The price of male blepharoplasty varies from patient to patient based on many factors, including whether you need lower eyelid surgery, upper eyelid surgery, or a combination procedure to resolve your concerns. The surgical techniques required and the associated anesthesia and facility fees will also affect the cost of your procedure.
