Male Blepharoplasty: Breaking the Stigma and Embracing Aesthetics

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic treatment that can rejuvenate the eyelids and overall look of the eyes. The procedure can correct sagging skin, droopy eyelids, puffiness, wrinkles, and dark circles, while also enhancing the shape and size of the eyelids, making the eyes look more alert and youthful. While blepharoplasty is a popular option for many women who want to rejuvenate their facial features, it is often overlooked by men who may feel that cosmetic surgery is not for them. Nevertheless, more and more men are realizing the benefits of male blepharoplasty and are choosing to undergo this procedure to boost their confidence and self-esteem. If you’re considering eyelid surgery, then here’s what to know about it and how our oculoplastic surgeon, Dr. Ali Ghafouri, can help.


There are many reasons why men may decide to have blepharoplasty. They include the following.

To Look Younger and More Refreshed

Aging can cause the eyelids to lose elasticity and become droopy, creating a tired and aged appearance. Eyelid surgery can get rid of of excess fat and skin, creating a more energetic, youthful look.

To Improve Vision

Sometimes, sagging upper eyelids can interfere with the field of vision, making it difficult to see clearly. Blepharoplasty can lift the upper eyelids and restore normal vision (this is typically considered a medical procedure).

To Correct Asymmetry or Deformity

Some men may have congenital or acquired conditions that affect the shape or function of their eyelid, including ptosis (drooping of the upper eyelid) or ectropion (turning out of the lower eyelid). Blepharoplasty can correct these issues and restore balance and harmony to the eyes.

To Enhance Attractiveness

The eyes are one of the most noticeable and expressive features of the face, and they play a crucial role in attractiveness. Blepharoplasty can improve the shape, size, and position of the eyelids, making the eyes more appealing and attractive.


Blepharoplasty can offer many benefits for men who want to improve their appearance and quality of life. Here are a few of them.

Increased Confidence and Self-Esteem

Many men who have blepharoplasty report feeling more confident and satisfied with their appearance after the surgery. They feel more comfortable in social and professional settings, and they enjoy a positive impact on their personal and professional relationships.

Natural-Looking Results

When performed by an experienced oculoplastic surgeon, blepharoplasty is a subtle and refined procedure that can enhance the eyes without changing their natural character or expression. The goal is to create a natural-looking improvement that matches the rest of the face and does not look overdone or artificial.

Minimal Scarring and Downtime

Blepharoplasty is performed through small incisions that are hidden by the natural folds of the eyelids or inside the lower eyelid. This minimizes scarring and makes them virtually invisible once healed. Blepharoplasty is also an outpatient procedure that does not require hospitalization or general anesthesia. The recovery time is relatively short, with most patients returning to work within a week.
