Is it Beneficial For Men To Have Upper Blepharoplasty?
Added on 19th June 2020
It’s rare for male patients to ask for upper blepharoplasty surgery compared to women when improving their appearance. Their common reasons why men tend to ask for an upper blepharoplasty is when they have excess skin or their vision is impaired. In our vlog, we’ll be exploring whether it is beneficial for men to have an upper blepharoplasty.
Male Upper Blepharoplasty: Case Study 1 & 2
As you can see in the video above, we have provided two case studies of male patients taking up upper blepharoplasty surgery. We can see preoperatively that the two gentlemen have their brow sitting lower which means the heaviness of the eyelids are quite excessive.
With this added weight, the eyelid is being pressured downwards and it’s causing impairment to their vision, particularly for the second gentleman.
How it is beneficial for men to have an upper blepharoplasty
We can see from the postoperative results that the heaviness has been reduced for the patients. Although the surgery won’t elevate the brow in any way, the reduction in heaviness is beneficial for men. It allows them to be more comfortable as well as vision potentially being improved. This can be particularly noticeable when patients have left it so long that the excess skin begins to hang over the eyelid.
Upper blepharoplasty can be beneficial for men
It can be beneficial for men to have upper blepharoplasty. The reasons for them to go through with the surgery compared to women can be different. It’s important that the pros and cons of brow lifting is discussed during your consultation.
During your consultation, we can also discuss the combination of treatments available to treat this as well as non-surgical options. For example, a botox can help particularly with periorbital rejuvenation.
