Upper & Lower Eyelift

Upper & Lower Eyelift Surgery for Men in NYC



What is an Eyelift?

Eyelift surgery, otherwise called Blepharoplasty, enhances the look and function of the upper and/or lower eyelids for a fresher, more youthful appearance. To counteract signs of aging, this minimally invasive procedure makes adjustments to the patient’s skin, fat or muscle that may swell or hang around the eyes. In a few cases, the hanging or hooding of the eyelid can even start to debilitate and interfere with vision. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons recommends working with a board-certified professional. Dr. Steinbrech is highly skilled at performing upper and lower eyelift surgery and other procedures for men in NYC.

How is an Eyelift Performed?

Upper Eyelift

Upper eyelid excess skin and fat can create a heavy-looking eyelid, aged appearance, puffiness, and sometimes block vision. Upper Blepharoplasty is performed to remove excess skin and fat and can improve vision. In an upper Blepharoplasty, tiny cuts are made in precise locations such as the regular eyelid pleats. Upper blepharoplasty surgery uses incisions on the skin to allow for the removal of skin and fat. A thin stitch is then used to bring the skin together to allow for the creation of an eyelid crease.

Lower Eyelift

Lower blepharoplasty is performed to remove excess skin, reduce wrinkles, and improve the shape of the lower eyelid by removing skin and fat. Sometimes tightening the eyelid is needed to correct droopiness or sagging. Adding fat is done to improve a “hollowed” appearance. Lower eyelid surgery can involve tiny skin incisions directly below the lash line or an incision on the inside of the eyelid called a transconjunctival approach. The transconjunctival approach allows for access to the eyelid fat without visible incisions making this technique perfect for patients who need fat removed or added. This approach can be combined with laser resurfacing of the eyelid skin to reduce lines and wrinkles. However, male eyelift surgery has a particularly high satisfaction rate with precise plastic surgery specialists in NYC.
