First and foremost, blepharoplasty is a type of plastic surgery which corrects defects or deformities to the eyelid. It is also used to change the aesthetic appearance of the overall eye region.
Typically, this is a procedure which is much more commonly requested by female patients. The cases which see men request blepharoplasty surgery often come as a result of an abnormally large amount of excess skin overhanging the eye, affecting vision. This excess of skin can also make the patient feel unnaturally tired.
As you can see in the above examples, the brow often sits lower and the heaviness of the eyelid is quite excessive. This almost pressures the lower lids downwards as a result. Upper blepharoplasty surgery then reduces this heaviness, though it does not elevate the brow in doing so, however, this reduction often makes the patient feel much more comfortable. Frequently, vision is improved, especially in cases where the skin has been left to hang over the eye.
From this, we can see that men can and do benefit from upper lid blepharoplasty surgery though the reasons for the surgery may be slightly different. It is important to run through the different options for blepharoplasty and brow lifts prior to surgery or combination. Non-surgical solutions such as Botox can also be beneficial for this issue.
