BLEPHAROPLASTY

FOR MEN

The eyes are one of the most distinctive facial features, and in regards to social interactions; they have a main role in non-verbal communication. They are almost always the first facial feature to age. Between the age of 20 and 30, the first wrinkles around the eyes may start to appear, and expression lines on the forehead can be seen. Later, the skin starts to thin, the forehead descends and causes the eyebrows to droop. Then, an excess of skin builds up around the eyes and they become puffy. All this can result in a tired, sad, angry appearance and an absence of vigor, which in the context of communication with other people may have negative effects. Many men have bags under the eyes and excess skin on their upper eyelids, and in many cases this is due to genetics. In some cases, the excess of skin is so considerable that it can affect peripheral vision. These conditions may be corrected with a blepharoplasty, which is a very minimal surgical procedure that can cause a very favorable improvement in any man’s appearance. It is one of the most frequent facial cosmetic surgeries and it involves the removal of excess skin, muscle and fat from the upper or lower eyelids. It can be done under local or general anesthesia, depending on the surgical plan, the patient’s needs or desires, and the surgeon’s preference. During the surgery, incisions are made along the natural folds of the eyelids so that they’re not visible once they have healed. The surgeon removes the excess of skin, muscle and fat that he deems necessary based upon preoperative evaluation of factors such as facial muscle structure, bone structure and symmetry of the brows, as well as maintaining a masculine appearance.
