Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty

This procedure is recommended for men with excess fat or skin on the upper eyelid.

It begins with a small incision to the upper lid, where the natural fold would be. Excess skin and fat are gently removed, and the incision is closed. This technique helps hide the incision in the eyelid crease. The incision for men is slightly different from the incision for women, so that a more masculine look is achieved.

You will look like you – just younger.
