Male Eyelid Surgery Baltimore Artistry In Plastic Surgery

Male Eyelid Surgery in Baltimore

The eyes are the focal point of the face. When meeting and communicating with family, friends and co-workers, the eyes are one of the cues that others use to form opinions about how engaged or energetic we are.

Eyelid Surgery Baltimore

As we age, the delicate skin around the eyes looses elasticity and internal muscle structures start to sag. These common signs of aging are not only frustrating, but can adversely affect career advancement and other opportunities.

Drooping and wrinkled upper eyelids, excess skin on the upper and lower eyelids, or under-eye puffiness and bags can make you look tired, fatigued and older than you feel. Sagging eyelids, whether hereditary or brought on by aging, can impair your vision.

Advances in plastic surgery techniques in recent years have given men and women access to the most effective and problem free eyelid surgery Baltimore residents could hope to find. Men have recently become a significant proportion of Dr. Brent Birely’s patient population due to his ability to perform game changing cosmetic procedures with a distinctly masculine tone.

Blepharoplasty Baltimore

What is male eyelid surgery?

An eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) reduces the bulging fat, loose muscle, and excess skin from upper and lower eyelids, creating a refreshed appearance, with a younger, firmer-appearing eye area. Eyelid procedures can be performed on upper or lower eyelids separately or done together.

Upper eyelid surgery is done for two reasons; to smooth and tighten the skin over the eyelid for the purpose of restoring a more youthful image and to improve peripheral vision. Many older patients find that drooping skin over the eyelid impairs their ability to comfortably read, watch TV or even drive safely.

Removing excess skin and fat in the upper eyelid is easily done on an outpatient basis at our state-of-the-art surgical center. Recovery takes a few weeks but the impact on appearance is well worth the effort of arranging time from work or other responsibilities.

For men, seeking the finest blepharoplasty Baltimore provides is an investment in their ability to remain competitive in very competitive job markets. Maryland is home to many highly demanding careers from lobbyists to nationally active law firms and consulting companies. Being able to project an energetic and vibrant image is the key to remaining relevant in these very demanding job markets.

I am from Baltimore and am considering male eyelid surgery. Am I a male eyelid surgery candidate?

If you notice any of the following and desire a change you may be a good candidate for male eyelid surgery.

  • Sagging of the eyelids upper and lower
  • Puffiness under the eyes (bags)
  • Wrinkles in both upper and lower eyelids
  • Excess skin around the eye, sometimes impairing vision

Upper Eyelid Surgery

One of the major concerns of most patients is scarring; will people know that you have had a procedure, or will scars be visible? The answer is no – Dr. Birely is a world class, board certified plastic surgeon who has performed thousands of successful cosmetic procedures. He is known as a perfectionist who is particularly careful about incision placement and incision closing techniques. As a result his work is considered among the best eyelid surgery Baltimore can provide.

In order to keep the scars as invisible as possible, incisions are made within the natural lines and creases of the upper eyelid. Excess fat, muscle, and loose skin are reduced to smooth and lift the eyelid. Fine sutures are used to close the incisions, thereby minimizing the visibility of any scar.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

One of the most common complaints that Dr. Birely hears from both his male and female patients is about the bags under their eyes. These pockets of excess fat and fluid are very common, and can be quite severe. This condition can be so severe that it affects peripheral vision in that the bags are not only under the eyes but continue onto the upper cheeks.

Reducing the appearance of bags under the eyes is a positive way of restoring a youthful and energetic aspect to the face. Often the appearance of bags projects an attitude of sickness or fatigue. Removing this facial defect is a very positive way of re-establishing the aspect of energy and capability, which can make all the difference when competing for a position in a highly competitive field. Dr. Birely is dedicated to making sure that you get the rejuvenative results that you deserve, while providing among the best blepharoplasty Baltimore has to offer.

Procedure for removing under eye bags

An incision is made along the lash line and “smile creases” of the lower eyelid, or inside the lower eyelid. Excess fat, muscle, and loose skin are trimmed away to reduce under eye bags. In some cases, fatty deposits are repositioned higher in the eye socket to restore a fuller appearance.

What does the recovery after a male eyelid surgery look like?

After either procedure, your stitches will be lubricated with ointment. You will be given cold compresses to help alleviate swelling and puffiness. You will be able to watch television, read or work at your computer within the next day.

With over 2 decades of experience, Dr. Birely knows how important it is to enhance, and not change the look of each individual. As such, Dr. Birely takes great pride in his work and is considered by his patients as one of the top providers of blepharoplasty Baltimore has to offer.
