I am a fairly young male (34 years old) yet I have hooded eyes. I think they make me look too old. Exactly what would you do during blepharoplasty to open my eyes up a bit?
Hooded eyes in a 34 year old male is a genetic issue. My suspicion is that your mother or father suffer from the same findings. The good news is that treatment for hooded eyes requires only an upper lid blepharoplasty. The upper lid blepharoplasty in a 34 year old male should require measuring and removing of excess skin, and possibly reduction of some of the muscle beneath the skin of the upper eyelid. I have performed upper lid blepharoplasty under local anesthesia only, but, prefer IV sedation with local anesthesia for optimal comfort and reduced blood loss.
