Male eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that aims to enhance the quality of the skin around the eyes by reducing the appearance of common signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, droopy eyelids, and excess fatty deposits.
The procedure can be performed on both the upper and lower lids through the removal or redistribution of excess skin and fatty tissue. Special techniques are used to rejuvenate the eye area and promote a more youthful and refreshed appearance while maintaining a natural, non-surgical look that does not compromise the masculinity of the patient’s facial features.
Due to the delicate skin surrounding them, the eyes are usually one of the first areas of the face to show significant signs of aging. As people age, the skin around the eyes gradually loses its elasticity and the underlying muscles grow weaker. This leads to loose eyelid skin, which can obstruct vision, and excessive fat buildup, which can make you look tired and puffy.
Eyelid surgery helps address the following issues:
The success of any eyelid surgery is dependent on the skills of your plastic surgeon, as the procedure demands the surgical prowess of a highly-trained doctor with comprehensive knowledge and expertise in performing advanced blepharoplasty techniques.

Your initial consultation with Dr. Sedgh plays an important role in the overall success of the procedure.

The initial consultation will consist of:
For out-of-town and international patients, Dr. Sedgh can also conduct consultations via video conferencing. Should you decide to proceed with the blepharoplasty procedure under his care, his office can also assist you with the travel logistics for the day of surgery.

There are different male eyelid surgery techniques that your surgeon can perform to smoothen the upper and lower lids. Dr. Sedgh will adjust the surgical techniques to the unique needs of each patient in order to create results that look natural and aesthetically pleasing in relation to the patient’s gender and distinct facial features.
Male eyelid surgery is commonly performed under local sedation or general anesthesia, but you can discuss other anesthetic options with Dr. Sedgh prior to the procedure.
To make the lower eyelids look more youthful, Dr. Sedgh will begin by making an incision inside the lash line to gain access to the underlying tissues that need to be removed or repositioned. He may also use a skin pinch excision under the lash line for excessive skin in the under eye area.
For the upper eyelids, Dr. Sedgh will usually create an incision within the natural crease on the eyelid to avoid visible scarring. The specific adjustments will depend on the patient’s specific eye concerns, and will be accomplished using advanced techniques that involve optimum fat repositioning and distribution for a more natural look.
Under normal conditions, these procedures can take up to two hours to complete.
Male blepharoplasty is commonly done as an outpatient procedure. After the surgery, you may experience postoperative side effects such as swelling and bruising. To manage these side effects and facilitate a more comfortable recovery, it is important to take the prescribed medications and follow all post-op instructions.
Although it takes around two weeks for the localized bruising to subside, patients are normally able to return to their normal activities within a week after the procedure.
Dr. Sedgh places the highest importance on the health and wellbeing of his patients during the postoperative process, which is why he makes it a point to personally monitor a patient’s recovery progress starting from the first day following the operation up to a year after. Through these regularly scheduled follow-up appointments, he is able to observe and evaluate your healing progress and ensure the most optimum recovery.
