What Is A Male Blepharoplasty?
Men and women lose elasticity in the skin as they age, including around the eyes. For some men the eyelids droop excessively, making it difficult to see. Blepharoplasty is a procedure to remove excess skin around the eye and reduce bags under the eyes. Eyelifts can tighten the muscles around the eyelid. This refreshes a man’s appearance, so he looks rejuvenated and energetic. The procedure is effective for improving impaired eyesight and reducing puffy bags under the eyes, however, it will not improve dark circles or crow’s feet around the eyes.
