Male Blepharoplasty in Danville
Puffy, tired eyes can add years to your appearance. Even if you get enough sleep, the loose skin and fatty deposits around the eyes can make you look tired. Blepharoplasy, or eyelid lifts can be performed on both upper and lower eyelids to remove or redistribute extra tissue. Eyelid lifts can help restore younger and more rested-looking eyes in both men and women.
The skin around the eyes is thinner, and therefore is more prone to losing its elasticity over time. The result is loose skin that’s puffy or wrinkled. An eyelid lift helps correct this issue by targeting the upper or lower eyelid. In an upper eyelid procedure, a crescent-shaped flap of skin is removed followed by any excess fat around the nose area. The incision scar is hidden in the fold above the eye and is difficult to see once healed.
A lower lid procedure also removes excess skin and fatty tissue as needed. The surgeon also tightens and redrapes the muscle over the lower eyelid so the end result is a smoother junction between your lower eyelid and your cheek.The incision is made either behind the eyelid or just below the eyelashes, so the scar will be hidden.
Both men and women patients frequently combine eyelid surgery with other procedures for even more dramatic results. The most common procedures they choose are browlifts and facelifts.
