Male Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)


Find Eyelid Surgery Clinics in London & UK »

While Blepharoplasty is a common procedure for women, it is also one of the more frequently performed cosmetic surgical procedures for men.  Partly this is because it produces a relatively subtle effect, and is not seen as quite such a feminine procedure as, say, a facelift.  It is also seen as an acceptable treatment from a medical point of view; it can effectively correct vision problems, as well as improving the aesthetic appearance of the eye.   

Suitability for Male Blepharoplasty

As with female patients, male candidates for Blepharoplasty should meet minimum health requirements.  Generally if the patient is aged 35 or over and in good physical health, and there are no underlying health problems, the suitability and prognosis for beneficial results are good.  You may not be a good candidate for the procedure if you have any health complications such as diabetes, cardiovascular problems or problems with your eyes (such as glaucoma.)  All of these should be raised and discussed in consultation with your surgeon.

Additionally, as with all potential candidates, you should have realistic expectations of what your surgery will achieve.

Procedure for Male Blepharoplasty

The surgical procedure itself is essentially the same as that carried out for female patients.  However, due to differences in facial hair patterns and physiognomy it is advisable to use a surgeon who has experience of performing the procedure successfully on male patients. 

Other Considerations for Male Blepharoplasty

As with female patients, you will be asked to provide a comprehensive medical history.  You should also be asked to discuss your lifestyle, and be prepared to make changes – to diet, smoking habits and exercise – as necessary.  You may also need to research dermatological facial care to help prolong the benefits of a Blepharoplasty.
