Is blepharoplasty ideal for a male patient? Los Angeles male blepharoplasty expert - Santa Monica plastic surgery

A blepharoplasty procedure can be performed on the upper or lower eyelids in both men and women.  Many men are ideal candidates for an upper eyelid blepharoplasty to remove excess eyelid hooding from the upper eyelids.  This excess skin and hooding can cause impairment in the upper visual field, thereby diminishing the peripheral field of vision. 


Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery can be performed on an outpatient basis with minimal downtime and is suitable for adult men of all ages.  Upper eyelid blepharoplasty can be performed on patients for cosmetic or medical reasons.  If there is associated visual field obstruction, as noted on physical examination and visual field tests, insurance may cover the cost of the blepharoplasty.  In addition to removing excess skin, some patients will require removal of the fatty tissue underneath the eyelid skin.  Lower eyelid blepharoplasty can be performed to eliminate saggy lower eyelids and a depressed baggy look to the cheek and eyelid junction.  Tired looking eyes can be improved and refreshed, thereby minimizing the signs of premature aging.  If you have questions about upper or lower eyelid surgery in men, please call our office at 310-998-5533 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian.  Our office is located in Santa Monica and Dr. Karamanoukian performs surgery in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills.
