Male Blepharoplasty in Louisville: Is It for Me?
Puffiness and/or drooping of the skin surrounding the eyes is a tell-tale sign of age for men. In some cases, the drooping or hooding of the eyelid can even begin to impair vision. Blepharoplasty rejuvenates the eyes by removing excess skin and fat, or “bags”, of the eyelids.
- Upper eyelid excess fatty deposits that cause puffiness
- Eyelid folds from sagging of loose skin
- Excess eyelid skin causing fine wrinkles
- Droopiness of the eyelids
Goals of Surgery
The goal of Blepharoplasty is to restore a more youthful, vibrant appearance and correct a tired, sad or overly concerned look.
Where Does the Surgery Take Place?
Dr. Corbett performs this procedure in an outpatient facility in Louisville.
General anesthesia is used for this type of invasive surgical procedure, and any details you wish to discuss can be addressed during your initial consultation or at any time before your day of surgery.
Eyelid lift surgery takes 45 minutes to 90 minutes to perform.
This surgery is done on an outpatient basis.
There is typically little pain after eyelid surgery, and you can expect to be discharged within 1 hour of the procedure. The eyes do not need to be bandaged and sutures are removed within 1 week. Swelling and discoloration around the eyes typically subside within 7 to 10 days, when the majority of patients return to their normal activities.
After surgery you should plan on at least 2 to 4 follow-up visits though each case is personalized to address your specific needs.
As with any surgery, complications can occur and are best discussed at the time of your consultation. It is essential that our male patients be aware of the potential complications before undergoing blepharoplasty.
