Blepharoplasty for Men
Blepharoplasty is different in men. The final scar in the upper eyelid is closer to the eyelash line, 5 to 6 mm. If it is too high, it creates a more feminine look. Lower eyelid skin excess is treated with direct skin excision.
Where Did Your Eyelid Skin and Fat Go?
Upper eyelid hooding and lower eyelid bags, occur with age but are also seen in young adults. Sun damage, lack of sleep, smoking, drinking and ethnicity all contribute. Upper eyelid skin excess is common in Northern Europeans.
Middle aged men typically have hooding of the upper eyelids and bags under the eyes. Indeed, it is one of the first signs of getting older, both in men and women and because of that it is the most frequent cosmetic surgery in the early forties and fifties. These eyelid changes generally occur before facial and neck aging.
