Upper Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

This 76 year-old man saw Dr. Marc Polacco with concerns of upper eyelid hooding. He felt that he appeared tired, even when was not tired at all. Dr. Polacco performed an upper eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) in order to reduce the amount of upper lid skin, giving him a more rested yet natural appearance. Male blepharoplasty must be conservative to avoid feminizing
the patient or instilling a “surprised” look. Post-operative photographs were obtained 4 weeks after surgery. Photos presented with patient consent. Results may vary.
