Preserving the masculine aesthetics
Male blepharoplasty is a delicate yet transformative aesthetic procedure aiming to rejuvenate the face. Due to the intrinsic anatomic and aesthetic characteristics of the eyelids, male blepharoplasty requires a unique approach aiming to rejuvenate the eyelids without altering the key masculine features of the most expressive part of the face. The objective is to enhance the natural features of the eyes and restore a youthful, rested and pleasant aesthetic to this area.
Dr Papageorgiou with his specialist expertise in eyelid surgery and male facial aesthetics employs minimally invasive techniques customised to the individual needs of the patient. The balance of knowing how much skin and fat to remove/preserve is attributed to his artistic skills and expertise as an Oculoplastic surgeon. Dr Papageorgiou performs the Augmenting Blepharoplasty, where the fat pads are preserved or repositioned to enhance the 3D contours of the area and above all avoid the deep-set or hollow appearance often seen in male patients undergoing blepharoplasty.
Additional elements like face asymmetry, tone of the eyelid structure and position of the eyebrows are critical in optimising the final aesthetic outcome and must be taken into consideration during the pre-operative assessment. Dr Papageorgiou employs 3-D photography which is a powerful tool in assessing the aging changes and helps customise the surgical plan.
The procedure is usually performed under local anaesthesia or sedation (twilight anaesthesia) and has a fast recovery time. Energy based devices (Infrared Lasergenesis, Ultherapy) or Hyaluronic Acid layering can further enhance the final aesthetic outcome.
