Eyelid surgery, or in medical terms a “blepharoplasty,” is one of the most commonly performed procedures performed on men in the USA. Many men you know have likely already had this procedure. When it is performed with meticulous care, the results look natural, not wide-eyed and startled. At our Charlotte plastic surgery clinic, we often perform this procedure on our male patients – they trust us to create a natural-looking outcome.

Dr. Ditesheim is a leading, board-certified plastic surgeon serving the Charlotte area. His extensive experience, along with his top level surgical skills, have led to his stellar reputation for excellence in facial plastic surgery for men.

Upper Eyelid Surgery

The skin on the eyelids is finer in texture and often the first facial area to show the signs of age. This skin loses its elasticity and the eyelids begin to sag. In some cases, the sagging is so extreme that vision is obstructed.

Most of our male patients undergoing the procedure do so to restore a more youthful look – and the results, when the procedure is performed with great care, create a look of vitality and strength that looks completely natural. The excess fat and skin is removed to restore the natural contour of the eye.

Benefits of Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery has many benefits, including:

  • Restores appearance
  • Restores the natural contour of the eyes
  • Improves vision
  • Smooths fine lines
  • Addresses bags, wrinkles, lines

Lower Eyelid Surgery

Some men look older as they suffer from heavy bags under the eyes, festoons, deep tear troughs, excessive wrinkling, puffiness, droopy skin and tissue, and dark under-eye circles. To resolve these issues, lower eyelid surgery is often the appropriate procedure, which could be used in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments to make a man look younger and more attractive – taking years off facial appearance.

Eyelid Surgery: The Procedure

The procedure itself, depending upon the needed surgical technique, requires one to two hours to complete. Some of our male patients who require more extensive eye rejuvenation may have both upper and lower eyelid surgery. We cater to our male patients, and ensure they are completely comfortable during the procedure, and under anesthetic. Excess skin and tissue is removed, and the incisions closed with tiny sutures.



Our mission is your comfort, along with fantastic results.

Set aside at least a week to ten days for recovery and arrange a friend or family member to stay with you for the first night after surgery. Healing requires rest and having everything you need, from drinks to snacks, within easy reach, and your bed arranged with extra pillows or a wedge, as keeping your head elevated helps to speed healing.

Expect some bruising and swelling, which quickly reduces as the days pass. Your new look will soon be revealed. With Dr. Ditesheim, you can be completely confident that the results will meet your expectations in producing a very natural-looking outcome.
