Eyelid Surgery for Men
Male Eyelid Surgery - Upper and Lower
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure performed by plastic surgeons to improve the appearance of both the upper and lower lids. This surgery is one of the most popular surgical facial rejuvenation procedures for men.
When the skin on the upper eyelid becomes loose and wrinkled and sometimes bad enough to actually rest on the eyelashes, an upper blepharoplasty is performed to remove the sagging skin which often interferes with vision.
The most common complaint about the lower eyelid is fat pockets or bulges that can give a man the appearance of being chronically tired and add years to one’s appearance. These fat bulges can be a family trait. The next most common complaints are fine wrinkles and then heavier wrinkles appearing on the lower eyelids.
Upper and lower eyelid surgical procedures can significantly improve a man’s facial appearance as the eye area is rejuvenated to a more youthful and restful look.

An upper and lower blepharoplasty can:
- Remove sagging eyelid skin (eyelid folds)
- Remove any eyelid skin that may be interfering with a man’s vision
- Remove bags under the eyes (fat pockets or bulges)
- Remove fine wrinkles around the lower eyelid
Eyelid surgery is an excellent surgical procedure for men who want to improve their facial appearance and/or restore impaired vision*.
How is Upper Eyelid Surgery Performed and What is the Recovery Process?
Drs. Sherwood Baxt and Shwetambara Parakh explain to their upper eyelid surgery patients that a very small incision is made in the natural fold of their eyelid where removal of any excess fat deposits and sagging skin can be carefully removed.
This operation is almost totally painless in its aftercare, and the stitches are self-dissolving within a week. An incision is made in the natural fold of the eyelid so the very fine scar is not visible. Many upper blepharoplasty patients can resume normal activities within a few days to a week*.
How is Lower Eyelid Surgery Performed and What is the Recovery Process?
Drs. Sherwood Baxt and Shwetambara Parakh explain to their lower eyelid surgery patients the removal of fat pockets leaves little-to-no scar*. The fat pocket is removed from the inside and, if there is any excess skin, it is removed by laser resurfacing, which causes significant shrinkage of the skin. The incisions are sutured and are virtually unnoticeable. Fine lines and most coarse lines are dramatically improved by laser resurfacing, thereby eliminating the need for a surgical scar*.
Many lower blepharoplasty patients can resume normal activities within a few days to a week*.
