Upper and Lower Eyelid Surgery for Men

Eyelid surgery

Your eyes significantly impact your face, often becoming the first place where the aging process is most visible. Thankfully, there are ways to help reduce a man’s aging signs around his eyes – and keep that sharp, youthful look. Upper and lower eyelid surgery, also known as Blepharoplasty, is a fast way to improve the appearance of the upper or lower eyelids dramatically. The goal of this surgery is to correct those problems associated with aging – this can include some skin removal and micro incisions in creases or hollows of the eye. Blepharoplasty is done to give men a fresher, more rested appearance. Dr. Steinbrech is a plastic surgeon who offers top-quality upper and lower eyelid surgery for men in Chicago.

How Is Upper and Lower Eyelid Surgery Performed?

The details of eyelid surgery for male patients in Chicago aren’t as scary as one might think. It’s not as invasive as most other cosmetic surgeries. Blepharoplasty involves minor incisions made in the natural eyelid creases or by the lower lash line. This reduces scarring. In a lower eyelid blepharoplasty, incisions could be made with either an “open” technique of adding a cut below your lash line or a “closed” technique via an incision inside the lower eyelid ridge. Your surgeon may reposition any fat around the eye and restore the eyelids’ curvature by correcting eyelid muscles’ loosening.
