What Is Male Blepharoplasty?

Male Blepharoplasty is a specialised surgical procedure that focuses on rejuvenating the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids in men. It is designed to address common concerns such as drooping or sagging eyelids, puffy under-eye bags, and excess skin or fat deposits around the eyes. As an experienced and detail-oriented plastic surgeon in London, Dr. Veerle Rotsaert understands the unique anatomical features and aesthetic goals of male patients, ensuring natural-looking results that enhance their overall facial harmony.

During the Blepharoplasty procedure, Dr. Veerle Rotsaert carefully removes excess skin and fat from the eyelids, tightens the underlying muscles, and repositions or removes any displaced fat pads. This comprehensive approach helps to restore a more youthful and alert appearance to the eyes, reducing the signs of aging and fatigue. The surgery is tailored to each patient’s specific needs, taking into account their facial structure, desired outcome, and any underlying medical considerations.

She will explain the male blepharoplasty process in detail, which involves removing excess skin, fat, or muscle from the eyelids to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes.

During your consultation, she will explain the potential risks and complications associated with male blepharoplasty, such as bleeding, infection, scarring, or changes in sensation. However, with her expertise and meticulous surgical techniques, Dr V aims to minimise these risks and ensure a safe and successful procedure.

  3. Pre-procedure Instructions: Dr Veerle Rotsaert will provide you with detailed pre-procedure instructions to follow before your male blepharoplasty.

  4. Preparing for Recovery: Proper preparation for the recovery period is essential for a successful male blepharoplasty.

  5. Questions to Ask: When considering male blepharoplasty, it’s important to have all your questions addressed. Here are some key questions to ask Dr Veerle Rotsaert during your consultation:

  • Can you explain the different techniques used in male blepharoplasty?
  • Can you show me before and after photos of previous male patients who underwent blepharoplasty?
  • What is the expected recovery timeline, and when can I resume my normal activities, including wearing contact lenses or eyeglasses?
  • What are the potential long-term effects or complications associated with male blepharoplasty?
  • How can I maintain the results of the procedure in the long term?

What Kind of Anaesthesia is Used?

Male Blepharoplasty surgery is typically performed using local anaesthesia or sedation. This combination allows for a comfortable and pain-free experience during the procedure. Dr. Veerle Rotsaert will discuss the anaesthesia options and determine the most suitable approach for your individual needs during your consultation.

How Long Does Male Blepharoplasty Takes?

The duration of Male Blepharoplasty surgery can vary depending on the complexity of the case and the specific techniques employed. On average, the procedure takes approximately one to two hours to complete. Dr. Veerle Rotsaert values the importance of dedicating ample time to each patient to ensure meticulous attention to detail and optimal outcomes.

Male Blepharoplasty Results & Aftercare

Following Male Blepharoplasty, patients can expect to see a significant improvement in the appearance of their eyelids. The surgery helps to eliminate excess skin and fat, tighten muscles, and restore a more youthful and rejuvenated look. While individual results may vary, the overall outcome is a refreshed and more alert appearance, contributing to a more youthful and vibrant facial aesthetic.

After the procedure, Dr. Veerle Rotsaert will provide you with detailed instructions for proper aftercare. This may include advice on managing any post-operative discomfort, caring for the surgical site, using prescribed medications or eye drops, and scheduling follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.

How Long Before I Can Return to Normal Activities?

The recovery timeline after Male Blepharoplasty can vary from patient to patient. In general, you can expect some initial swelling and bruising around the eyes, which gradually subsides over the following weeks. Most patients can resume normal daily activities, including work, within 7 to 10 days. However, it is essential to avoid strenuous activities, heavy lifting, and intense exercise for a few weeks following the surgery to ensure proper healing.

Dr. Veerle Rotsaert will provide you with personalised post-operative instructions, including any necessary restrictions or precautions specific to your case. By following these guidelines and allowing your body ample time to heal, you can optimise your recovery and achieve the best possible results.

Will I Have Scars After Male Blepharoplasty

While Male Blepharoplasty does involve incisions, Dr. Veerle Rotsaert utilises meticulous surgical techniques to minimise scarring and ensure discreet and well-concealed results. The incisions are strategically placed within the natural creases of the eyelids, where they can be easily camouflaged. Over time, any residual scars typically fade and become less noticeable, resulting in a more seamless and natural-looking outcome.

Dr. V's view on Male Blepharoplasty

“As a passionate plastic surgeon, I believe that male blepharoplasty is a transformative procedure that can significantly enhance the appearance of the eyes and rejuvenate the overall facial aesthetic. By carefully addressing concerns such as drooping eyelids, under-eye bags, and excess skin, we can restore a more youthful and refreshed look to the eyes, helping my patients regain their self-confidence and achieve a more youthful appearance.”

One year post surgery - The best decision going to Dr V! Having lost a significant amount of weight (50kg) at the age of 21 my breasts were very low from the loose skin. After my initial consultation where she helped me and talked through all the options I had and guided me with her expertise on what would look best from her professional opinion from feeling my skin and her experience. Especially as my skin was very difficult. Had a breast lift with implants put it, surgery went so smoothly and 1 year post op they are looking incredible. So thankful to Dr V and her team, as well as the nurses at the Welbeck Hospital. After the operation was getting constant check ups both in person and over the phone. Would recommend she made feel so comfortable and the has made me so confident in my body! Thank you for everything 🙂

Undergoing elective surgery was not something I rushed into. After extensive research I met with Dr Rotsaert, and knew I had met the right surgeon to carry out my procedure. Finally a surgeon who is professional, compassionate, and demonstrates expertise!!! My initial enquiry was well received by a friendly knowledgeable team who made the booking process easy. Dr Rotsaert created a relaxed environment for me at consultation, and listened to my concerns - I left feeling reassured and well informed with my personal treatment plan. The lovely nurses Amina and Alice helped prepare me for surgery and were extremely attentive (they were also at hand for my post operative care which was nice for continuity) When I arrived at hospital the experience and trust was confirmed as soon as I walked through the door to the moment I left. I was made to feel VIP and relaxed in the knowledge I was in safe hands. Post operatively went as smoothly as I could have hoped for. The only fault being my personal lack of patience to being fully recovered. 6 weeks after surgery I can honestly say I’m delighted with my results and as cliche as it sounds wish I had done it sooner. Dr Rotsaert and her team listened and guided me throughout. With their support and expertise they turned a nerve wracking decision of mine into one of best decisions I’ve made. Gold star service!
From the very first email I sent and my initial consultation with Dr V, all the way through to my surgery day and 6 week post operation appointment, I have been so happy with how I have been treated. Dr V always made me feel comfortable and at ease, and I trusted she understood exactly what I wanted. The results are even better than I could've imagined. I have a newfound love for my body and my confidence has increased tenfold, all thanks to her wonderful work. Definitely the best decision I have every made. I can't thank Dr V and her team enough. Highly recommend!

I’d highly recommend Dr V to anyone looking for a natural breast enhancement. She put me at ease straight away, no getting topless on Zoom, no 3D simulation, but a face to face initial consultation telling me exactly what was possible and making me touch and try several implants on. I also felt like she would take her time during the surgery instead of rushing it in 20-30 minutes which was important to me. The recovery was way easier than I expected and my results 2.5 months in are amazing, I got my breasts back which had “deflated” after having and breastfeeding my daughter and I really wanted that natural effect which I got with Motiva Joy implants and demi projection. The fact the post-op appointments are included is also a great touch.

Dr Veerle was everything I had hoped I would find in a surgeon. Having done a lot of my own research and prep over the course of a few years, she was able to answer all my questions in a way that reassured me she was extremely professional, fully knowledgable and skilled/experienced enough to offer the best result. She was also generous with her time where it mattered whilst being efficient in the process. There was absolutely no hint of an upsell or any encouragement to consider additional procedures from her side which I had encountered elsewhere and had put me off. Post-procedure she has also proven a dedicated surgeon and is happy to be involved in the evolving result and post-operative journey. Dr Veerle is the best!
