Open Up to the Possibilities

It’s called blepharoplasty, and it can reduce drooping eyelids, as well as puffiness or bags under the eyes. Eyelid surgery offers an ideal option for men who want to achieve a more energized, youthful appearance without being particularly noticeable.
The surgery consists of removing extra fat and skin from the lids, which allows them to open again and can even improve your line of sight. You’ll still have the same rugged good looks, just those from your younger days.
How is male blepharoplasty different from female blepharoplasty?
Dr. Mahony utilizes different surgical methods for male versus female eyelid surgery. This is because of the differences in both anatomy and how men and women perceive what needs to be done to refresh the eyes. For men, their heavier upper eyelid skin often creates droopy eyelids that can eventually impact the field of vision.
In the upper eyelid, if ptosis (sagging) is present, Dr. Mahony will tighten the levator muscle that has likely stretched out over time. With women, the goal in the upper eyelids tends to be on skin removal and fat repositioning. Women want a wider, more rounded look. Removing skin in the male eyelid can create a more feminine look, and that needs to be avoided.
In the lower eyelid, if the muscle has descended, Dr. Mahony will tighten it, as this removes the sagging. Men have thicker facial muscles, heavier eyelids, and heavier brows, and Dr. Mahony takes these factors into consideration when planning her male eyelid surgeries.
The goal is for the patient to look alert, refreshed, and younger, but the final result must look completely natural.

ASK DR. MAHONY
Many patients – men and women – are concerned about looking unnatural after plastic surgery. While my goal is to always create a natural appearance, eyelid surgery in particular is a procedure that offers an exciting boost without a glaring change. Most men report that they appear more energized or are simply told they “look great,” but friends and coworkers are not able to determine what has changed. This is why I find eyelid surgery to offer great bang for your buck – you will have an improved, more youthful appearance, but people usually cannot tell that you’ve had surgery.
What Our Patients Have to Say
Friendly and thoughtful staff. Education prior to the procedure was good. Procedure and results were what was explained to be - no surprises. I had never had cosmetic procedures prior and was nervous about the process and results. It went well. Glad I had the procedure - just sorry I waited so long to have it!
