Male blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure meant to improve the appearance of sagging, drooping eyelids which can cause men to look older or excessively tired. The procedure commonly involves the extraction of excess skin and fat, along with the tightening of underlying muscles. Blepharoplasty effectively addresses cosmetic issues as well as any vision impairment while imparting a more alert and rejuvenated look to the eyes. It's important to note that the facial anatomies of men differ from those of women in specific ways. Skillful plastic surgeons are well-versed in these distinctions and are able to tailor their surgical approaches and techniques to cater specifically to men. At the Clinic for Plastic Surgery in Houston, the scope of blepharoplasty for men encompasses the upper and lower eyelids or a combination of both, providing a comprehensive solution to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome.
This procedure focuses on the upper eyelid area and can address ptosis, hooded eyes, and functional issues.
To address either puffiness or a hollow look in the lower eyelid area, a lower blepharoplasty can rearrange tiny fat pockets or tighten and remove excess skin for a smooth, even result.
In many cases, patients want to address both the lower and upper eyelid areas at once, so a dual or double blepharoplasty is used. This is beneficial due to a single recovery period as well as avoiding duplicate anesthesia costs and surgical center fees.

Performed as outpatient surgery using either general anesthesia or local and sedation, male blepharoplasty typically takes about one to two hours, depending on the treatment plan. Dr. Sukkar will make extremely discreet incisions around the eyelid and then remove, tighten, or reposition skin, fat, and tissue for refined yet masculine results. Finally, sutures will be placed and the recovery process will begin.
Recovery from blepharoplasty is fairly mild for most and usually lasts around a week to ten days. Icing the area along with OTC pain medications can help keep swelling and tenderness to a minimum. Final results typically appear within four to six weeks.

Blepharoplasty is a relatively low-pain procedure, and most patients only experience a three to four out of ten on the pain scale in the days following.
Some risks could include bleeding or scarring. Any surgery comes with the potential for more serious risks, such as anesthesia allergy or infection.
Male blepharoplasty is considered permanent or long-term, however, this procedure cannot stop long-term signs of further aging.
The cost of male blepharoplasty often varies depending on the specific needs of each patient. In some cases, when functional issues are being corrected, this procedure may be covered by medical insurance.
