Male Blepharoplasty

What is Blepharoplasty?

The medical procedure – technically known as blepharoplasty – will eliminate and/or reposition excess skin and fatty tissue circa the eyelids. A drooping eyelid (ptosis) is mainly triggered by the aging process, but other causes include a high amount of exposure to the sun, smoking, lack of sleep, and allergies.

Procedure Details: Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty – also known as Eye Bag Removal – is an operation to remove the excess fat and skin on the patients' eyelids. It is possible to get a fresh look with this surgery. The sutures remain on the edges of eyelid, leaving no visible scar.


The majority of the potential blepharoplasty patients have a concern of "hollow eyes" or "hollow look" following the surgery. Some of the patients have this hollow look who had a blepharoplasty by a plastic surgeon that removed not only the skin but also the fat. It is crucial not to remove so much tissue as to prevent the eye from closing, and not to take out so much fat which leads to an eyelid that loses its fullness. Another point is the level of eyebrows. Low leveled eyebrows may result in an excess on the upper eyelid. In such cases, firstly, it is required to put the eyebrows into a correct position, before your surgeon performs Blepharoplasty. As long as your surgeon masters all the above cases, Blepharoplasty is a straightforward and effective operation.
