MALE BLEPHAROPLASTY IN ORANGE COUNTY
Anyone can benefit from a fuller, more youthful appearance. At OC Oculoplastic, we have a variety of eyelid surgery optionsspecifically for men. So whether you need a more alert look or want to restore your peripheral vision, a male blepharoplasty in Orange County may be what you need. We offer several different options to help you get the look you want.
What Is Male Blepharoplasty?
A male blepharoplasty is different from a female blepharoplasty, mainly regarding aesthetics. Our technique involves creating a balanced appearance that does not feminize your eyelids. Instead, Dr. Joseph removes excess fat and skin to help ensure an appropriately masculine look. This usually means a lower brow line compared to a woman’s slightly elevated brow line. However, it depends entirely on what works best for your specific look. This can involve various procedures, including upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery, quad blepharoplasty, and more.
Dr. Joseph knows how to correct your eyelid’s appearance to make you look younger and more alert without changing too much about your face. It’s time to take control of your look with eyelid surgery that works for you.
How Do I Know if I Need Male Blepharoplasty?
Most blepharoplasty procedures are intended for those with excess skin on the upper eyelid or droopy lower eyelid. This can lead to the impression that one has a tired or aged appearance. With eyelid surgery, you can update your appearance to look younger, more alert, and more awake.
What you can expect largely depends on the procedure.
Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty
During this procedure, Dr. Joseph makes a small incision into your upper eyelid to remove excess skin. After skin and fat are removed, the incision is closed, with the scar hidden in the natural fold of your upper eyelid.
The eyelid crease and contouring around the eyelid are handled differently than in the female version of the procedure. Our goal is to position your eyelids and brows to a position that was likely present in years past when you were younger, so you still look like you. Often the incision is placed lower on the lid than for a woman’s procedure, with less skin removal.
Too much skin in your upper eyelid can lead to droopiness, making it hard to see. This is called “ptosis.” In most cases, it’s unnoticeable, but in severe cases, it can seriously impair your vision. Dr. Joseph can perform ptosis surgery on your upper eyelids, saving your vision while giving you a properly rested look.
An excess of bags under the eyes can contribute to a tired, aged appearance for anyone. Unfortunately, this can become a problem as early as your thirties. However, we can effortlessly address that excess under-eye skin with a lower lid procedure and get you looking the way you should. During this procedure, an incision is made underneath your eyelid to remove excess fat or skin before closing the incision and hiding it in the outer corners of the eye. In some cases, we may transfer any fat deposits to other areas of your lower eyelid to allow for a natural-looking contour.
Sometimes, a tired appearance in your lower eyelids is due to a lack of fat deposits, not an excess of it. Sometimes, for individuals with low body fat content, a lack of adipose tissue will leave their eyelids looking hollow. In these cases, Dr. Joseph can reposition fat to the intended area, making them look fuller. In some cases, injectable fillers may be used. This is a popular way to place volume back into your face that does not allow for any visible fat pockets. Of course, all of this is followed by the requisite amount of facial contouring to help ensure you still look like you while looking the best you can.
A quad blepharoplasty is a procedure that addresses both your upper and lower eyelids. If you are experiencing sagging or volume loss in both your upper and lower eyelids, this may be what you’re looking for. Dr. Joseph combines the best of both worlds for a technique that addresses your whole eye area. The only thing to watch is the recovery period, which may be slightly longer than if you had only received one procedure. Thankfully, Dr. Joseph ensures you have a speedy healing process, removing sutures 6-7 days after the initial surgery.
Your experience will vary depending on the specific procedure you undergo, as will the recovery time. Rest assured, Dr. Joseph will go over any questions you may have. Dr. Joseph is an expert in all forms of eyebrow and eyelid surgery and knows how to give you optimum results.
