A blepharoplasty is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed for men because it has the ability to open up the eyes and restore a more youthful, friendly, attractive appearance.
Blepharoplasty procedure details
Blepharoplasty is performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with mild sedation. It generally takes 1 to 2 hours. In men, the blepharoplasty eyelid incision is placed closer to the eyelid lash line. This helps maintain a masculine look while still rejuvenating the periocular area. Dr. Hessler will either remove or re-adjust fat, excise excess skin, and tighten the muscles. The incisions will then be gently closed with sutures. For lower eyelid surgery, Dr. Hessler will make incisions under the eyelash line or inside the lower eyelids to reduce puffiness and under-eye bags. Upper and lower eyelid surgery can be done separately, or together.
