Many men and women come to see Dr. Nima at Eos Rejuvenation for blepharoplasty surgery for different reasons, whether they feel their eyes are aging them beyond their years, or their eyelids are sagging to the point where their field of vision is obstructed. Whatever the reason, Dr. Nima can help by performing this routine cosmetic facial surgery procedure.

These days, cosmetic surgery isn’t just for women. Many men have cosmetic procedures as well, and blepharoplasty is one that is very popular among men. Dr. Nima finds that man people are unaware of the differences between the way a blepharoplasty for men is performed versus a blepharoplasty for women. Keep reading, and we’ll discuss a little more about how they differ.

Types of Blepharoplasty Surgery

Before we can discuss how a blepharoplasty for women differs from a blepharoplasty for men, one must first understand a little more about the different types of blepharoplasty: 

  • Lower Blepharoplasty

Lower blepharoplasty, or lower eyelid surgery, is performed to remove excess fat from beneath the eyes and tighten the skin. This rejuvenating procedure can free you from the look of exhaustion by dramatically minimizing the appearance of baggy and puffy lower eyelids. To perform this procedure, Dr. Nima removes the bulging fat and bags from a hidden incision inside the lower eyelid.  He then uses fat from somewhere else (belly, thighs) and places it in the hollows under the eyes and cheeks.  This creates a more complete and natural looking result. The result – a more natural and youthful appearance.

  • Upper Blepharoplasty

Upper blepharoplasty, or upper eyelid surgery is one of the most routine of all cosmetic facial procedures and is used by Dr. Nima to restore your youthful eyes by removing excess skin and fat from the upper eyelids. To perform this procedure, he will carefully excise sagging skin from the upper eyelid using a concealed incision made in the fold of the upper eyelid. By smoothing and tightening the skin around the upper eyelid, Dr. Nima gives his Beverly Hills patients natural-looking, refreshed eyes. 

Blepharoplasty for Men vs Women

When performing blepharoplasty on women in Beverly Hills, Dr. Nima is careful to only remove enough skin and fat from the upper eyelids to achieve a desirable look. Because women naturally have thinner skin in and around their upper eyelids, if too much is removed, they can be left with a sunken or hollow look. Blepharoplasty for women also focuses on limiting the upper eyelids in order to give the eyes a wider, more rounded look, which is often preferred by women.

The most common reason Dr. Nima performs blepharoplasty for men in Beverly Hills is to improve droopy eyelids. Many men suffer from droopy eyes because of the naturally heavier skin they have on their eyelids. Typically, a blepharoplasty for men does not include an eyelid lift or widening of the eyes as it does for women. Instead, in order to avoid a feminine look, Dr. Nima will be careful not to remove too much skin and fat during a blepharoplasty for men.
