Blepharoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic procedures for men. Although in principle the procedure is similar in men and women, there are important differences in the male and female upper eyelids that correspond to the underlying facial structure and anatomy.
An attractive and youthful eyelid appearance in a man is different from that of a woman. For men, prominent low brows and a subtle eyelid appearance are both attractive and youthful. Whereas for women, high brows, an increased lid appearance and a high crease in the skin are considered more beautiful.
Male blepharoplasty is more challenging than female surgery as the techniques required to give a natural-looking result are a combination of specialist knowledge and artistic judgment. Dr De Silva is renowned for giving patients excellent results using advanced techniques that foster a natural and conservative rejuvenation.
Everyone is familiar with famous male actors and musicians who look like they have had too much work done. Thus, the key for eyelid surgery in men is, “less is more”.
