Blepharoplasty solves deformities – mostly swelling and pigmentation of the skin. Besides that the shape of the eyes is affected by genetic and growth factors. That is the reason the blepharoplasty is very frequent type of operation and as with all aesthetic operations, most patients are women. However, the amount of men wanting to treat the bags under the eyes and overcome their fear of surgery has radically increased.
