Wrinkles, creases, and fine lines on and near the eyelids can leave men looking older, more tired, and less engaged in everyday activities than they actually are.

Located in Nashville, RG Plastic Surgery and Rejuvenation Spa is proud to offer our male patients a broad variety of surgeries for men. If you’re interested in these services or undergoing an eyelid surgery for men, don’t hesitate — contact us today to schedule a consultation appointment.
What is Eyelid Surgery for Men?
Eyelid surgery is a procedure used to correct both medical and aesthetic problems associated with the eyelids. Also referred to as blepharoplasty, this surgery can be used to improve the appearance of a wide variety of eyelid irregularities, including:
- Loose or sagging skin
- Excess fatty deposits
- Undereye bags
- Drooping lower lids
- Wrinkles and fine lines
How is Eyelid Surgery Performed?
Before the procedure begins, the patient is administered either general or intravenous anesthesia. Different incisions are made depending on which areas of the eye the patient is having treated. The incision is made along the upper line of the eyelid for the upper eyelid surgery, and along the lower lash line for lower eyelid surgery. Excess fat and skin is then removed through and around these incisions. During each eyelid surgery, Dr. Ramirez Gavidia takes special care to minimize any scarring and downtime that is associated with the procedure.
What is Recovery Like After Eyelid Surgery?
Eyelid surgery generally features a fairly simple period of downtime that varies depending on the extent of surgery undergone by each man. However, anyone who has had this procedure should take special care to protect their eyes from the sun in the days and weeks that follow it. During each individual’s consultation appointment, Dr. Ramirez Gavidia will outline the expected recovery time associated with their unique treatment plan.
Am I a Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
Nearly any man who is interested in correcting the appearance of their eyelids and looking more alert and awake is a potential candidate for eyelid surgery. If you’re interested in this exciting cosmetic procedure, you must first set up a consultation appointment with Dr. Ramirez Gavidia. During this appointment, Dr. Ramirez Gavidia will examine each patient’s eyelids and help decide if an eyelid surgery is right for him.
