Eyelid Surgery for Men in San Jose

Male Eyelid Surgery available for the Bay AreaServing Mountain View & the Bay Area


Men can take many steps to conceal signs of aging, but the eyes are often the dead giveaway of their real age. To help rejuvenate the eyes, Dr. Alexander Ereso performs blepharoplasty, aka eyelid surgery, on his male patients. 

Types of Eyelid Surgery

There are two types of eyelid surgery: upper eyelid surgery and lower eyelid surgery. Upper eyelid surgery treats the skin that droops over the top eyelid, causing men to look older and less attractive. By removing some of this excess skin and any unwanted fat deposits, he will restore the more youthful position of this upper eyelid.

Lower blepharoplasty addresses the skin, fat and wrinkles that accumulate right below the eye. For this procedure, Dr. Ereso removes some skin and repositions the fat for a tighter appearance and reduces the “bags” that make men look older and more tired.

Male Eyelid Surgery Candidacy

Blepharoplasty is right for most men who have visible signs of aging around their eyes that they would like to minimize. The ideal candidates are non-smokers who are in good health to undergo an elective procedure.

Benefits of Eyelid Surgery for Men

Male eyelid surgery restores a youthful shape to the eyes and allows the eyes to be more expressive rather than seeming permanently tired and angry. Most patients report an increase in self-confidence, as well as an improvement in social and professional opportunities thanks to their younger appearance. Some men will even see their eyesight improve once the skin that hangs over their eyes is removed.

Why Choose Us for Male Blepharoplasty?

Dr. Ereso is a respected surgeon who has developed amazing techniques for rejuvenating the eyes. He also has a deep understanding of male faces, so he understands the precise cuts and fat repositioning necessary to create a more handsome face that does not lose its masculinity.

Preparation for Eyelid Lift

Patients should avoid sun exposure, smoking and blood-thinning painkillers like ibuprofen in the weeks leading up to their surgery so that their recovery is as smooth as possible.

Male Blepharoplasty Recovery and Results

Model for Male Blepharoplasty PageSwelling and bruising – often resembling a punch to the eye – will linger one to two weeks for upper blepharoplasty, or twice as long for lower blepharoplasty. Any pain should be easily managed with standard painkillers. Most patients take at least a week off work until their eyes look more presentable, though sunglasses are a convenient way to run errands without arousing suspicion, once you have recovered.

Once the swelling has subsided, you should begin to see the results take effect. Better yet, these results should last for the next seven to ten years before the natural aging process causes new drooping.

Risks and Safety Concerns for Male Eyelid Surgery

Follow Dr. Ereso’s aftercare instructions to limit the potential for infection. While most patients will not experience any complications, some patients may experience dry or irritated eyes and some momentarily blurry vision in the initial days after surgery.

Complementary Procedures

In addition to combining upper and lower blepharoplasty, men often pair this procedure with a brow lift to minimize the deep lines along the forehead and facelift or neck lift to rejuvenate the lower portion of the face.

Male Eyelid Surgery Costs and Financing Options

The total cost of blepharoplasty ranges from $4000-8000 depending on whether you choose upper or lower eyelid surgery or a combination of both. Dr. Ereso will provide an accurate price during your consultation and share financing options if you would prefer to make payments toward the procedure.
