There are an increasing number of male patients who present to our office who are excellent candiates for upper blepharoplasty surgery. Typically male patients begin to notice that they have developed an obstruction of their visual fields. This often is described as having difficulty seeing when driving out of their peripheral vision, a feeling of heaviness, or feeling tired early at work or in front of the keyboard.
When blepharoplasty surgery is performed for male patients, there are subtle differences in terms of the amount and pattern of skin to be excised as well as the positioning of the eyelid crease. Satisfaction is quite high with male patients who undergo blepharoplasty surgery.
