WHAT IS MALE BLEPHAROPLASTY?
Blepharoplasty is removal of the skin on the upper eyelid to create a lighter and fresher looking upper eyelid. It also may involve removing fat that may collect on the lower eyelid known as lower lid fat bags and treatment of wrinkles on the lower eyelid.
IS MALE BLEPHAROPLASTY PERFORMED WITH LASER?
Dr. Lanzer performs all blepharoplasty with laser. He finds that the laser cuts with a fine beam and fives a good end result regarding scarring. Also it is safe in his hands it seals the blood vessels whilst it cuts.
The other advantage of the laser is that removal of the fat bags is done from within the lower eyelids so there is actually no cutting of the skin or requirement for sutures.
HOW IS MALE BLEPHAROPLASTY DIFFERENT TO FEMALE BLEPHAROPLASTY?
Eyelid surgery has the same principles as men and female except for that in a man the goal is not to create a very wide open upper lid. The eyebrow is flatter and lower and a man has a more master look if there is not such a wide open eyelid.
WHEN DOES ONE PERFORM A BROW LIFT?
In some men, the brow droops from the bony structure of the forehead and sags onto the upper eyelid. In this situation, laser blepharoplasty would not be enough to remove the loose skin and there needs to be a brow lift as well. Brows can be elevated using a muscle relaxant injection or a filler. Otherwise, Dr. Lanzer does offer a direct brow lift where there is an incision directly above eyebrow. Skin, of about 1 cm in diameter is removed. This gives immediate elevation of the brow.
CAN MALE BLEPHAROPLASTY BE COVERED BY MEDICARE?
Male blepharoplasty can attract a Medicare item number in Australia if the skin is sagging over the eyelashes and affecting one’s vision. This does not cover all the costs but will contribute to some of the out of pocket expenses.
HOW DOES ONE TREAT THE WRINKLES ON THE LOWER EYELID IN MEN?
This forms part of laser blepharoplasty and Dr. Lanzer uses the erbium laser to vaporise the wrinkles. Sometimes muscle relaxant injections are advised as well in order to prevent recurrence of the wrinkles.
IS THERE ANY RISK TO THE EYE WITH MALE BLEPHAROPLASTY?
Any surgery that is around the eye has a risk to the eye. During the entire procedure, Dr. Lanzer covers the eye with a metal shield so it is protected and safe.
HOW LONG ARE THE STITCHES IN PLACE FOR AN UPPER EYELID BLEPHAROPLASTY?
The upper eyelid stitches remain in place for about 7-10 days. Patients usually can return to work after this time.
CAN MALE BLEPHAROPLASTY BE PERFORMED WITH A MINIFACE LIFT?
Yes, many men also have facelifts and do elect to have this at the same time. The face lift is used for the sagging of the cheeks and jaw line but will also help elevate and tighten the skin of the lower eyelid, particularly if there is festooning or drooping of the fat below the eyelid.
ARE THERE ANY PRECAUTIONS REGARDING MEDICINES THAT ONE TAKES IN MALE BLEPHAROPLASTY?
Yes. Patients should stop aspirin or any blood thinners such as vitamin E as this would enhance bruising and swelling. If a patient is on Warfarin or aspirin that is required for other reasons, there are drugs that can be taken for 10 days before the surgery so that there will be no affect of blood thinning during the procedure time.
IS MALE BLEPHAROPLASTY PERFORMED WHILE ONE IS ASLEEP?
Dr. Lanzer prefers to perform the procedure whilst patients have a light general anesthetic. It is never comfortable to operate around eyes. Occasionally, he will perform upper eyelid blepharoplasty whilst patients are awake or very slightly sedated.
DOES AGING AROUND THE EYES RUN IN FAMILIES?
There is a certain genetic tendency for aging, particularly around the eyes. Often, one will find that they are heading in the same direction as one’s parents. Sometimes patients do bring in photos of their parents and to point out that they feel that that is how they are starting to look.
ARE THE EYELASHES AFFECTED WITH LASER BLEPHAROPLASTY?
Dr. Lanzer has not experienced any changes in eyelashes nor should there be any changes in the eyebrow itself.
WHY DO MEN SEEK BLEPHAROPLASTY?
Men usually seek blepharoplasty because their face starts to appear tired. The upper eyelid skin gives an appearance of tiredness and aging.
When fat develops on the lower lid it creates a shadow that also makes patients look tired. Sometimes patients also get an angry appearance.
