Blepharoplasty is a type of eyelid surgery that involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids.
The procedure can help improve the appearance of drooping or sagging eyelids and reduce puffiness and wrinkles around the eyes. The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, and patients can expect to see results within a few weeks. After a male blepharoplasty Boston patients' recovery time is typically short, and side effects are typically mild and temporary.
Blepharoplasty is an effective procedure for improving the appearance of the eyelids. Male blepharoplasty can:
Patients considering blepharoplasty should be in good overall health, be non-smokers, have realistic expectations for the procedure, and be bothered by excess skin or fat around the eyelids.
The best candidates for upper blepharoplasty are those who have loose, saggy skin that creates folds or interferes with the natural contour of the upper eyelid or excess fatty deposits that cause puffiness in the upper eyelids.
The best candidates for lower blepharoplasty are those who have loose skin hanging down from the lower eyelids (known as “bags”), which may also create folds or wrinkles in the skin, or excess fatty deposits that cause puffiness in the lower eyelids.
During your consultation for a male eyelid surgery, Boston plastic surgeons at Clareo Plastic Surgery will discuss your goals for the procedure and evaluate the condition of your eyelids.
Be prepared to answer questions about your medical history, including any previous eye surgeries, conditions such as dry eyes or disorders that affect your tear ducts, and any medications you take. You should also inform your surgeon if you have any allergies.
Your surgeon will also examine your eyelids for excess skin, fat, and muscle, and determine the best approach to achieve your desired results. You will also have an opportunity to ask questions about the procedure, including the risks and potential complications.
Before the procedure begins, you will be given anesthesia to numb the area and keep you comfortable.
The type of anesthesia used will depend on the extent of the procedure being performed. The steps that will be taken during the procedure are dependent on the specific areas being treated.
The incision is made along the natural crease of the eyelid. This allows your surgeon to access and remove excess skin, fat, and muscle. The incisions will then be closed with small stitches.
To remove the excess skin and tighten the muscle of the lower eyelid, an incision is made just below the lower lash line. The incisions will then be closed with small stitches.
An incision is made on the inside of the eyelid, called a transconjunctival incision, in order to remove and reposition the fat of the lower eyelid.
Most male blepharoplasty patients have both internal and external incisions in order to fully correct the signs of aging in the safest manner possible.
A quad blepharoplasty is a procedure that combines an upper and lower blepharoplasty. This approach allows your surgeon to address excess skin, fat, and muscle in both the upper and lower eyelids.
After the procedure, you will be taken to a recovery area, where you will be monitored as you wake up from the anesthesia.
You may experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising around the eyes, but this is normal and will resolve over time. Your surgeon will give you specific instructions on how to care for your incisions and what you can expect in the coming days and weeks. It is important to follow your surgeon’s instructions and attend all follow-up appointments to ensure a successful recovery.
