A Sight for Sore Eyes

While a little crinkle around the eyes may seem dapper, drooping lids, puffiness, and dark circles can prematurely age your face and make you look tired, concerned, or even angry. Blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift, can help restore an alert appearance to your eyes.

Board-certified Plastic Surgeon Gregory A. Buford, MD, FACS, PCEO can perform this safe and effective procedure to help restore the bright, piercing gaze that makes you, you.

What Is Eyelid Surgery for Men?

Male eyelid surgery is a surgical procedure designed to rejuvenate and enhance the appearance of eyelids in men.

This procedure targets concerns such as droopy upper eyelids, puffy lower eyelids, excess skin, bags, and wrinkles. By addressing these issues, male eyelid surgery can help men like you achieve a more youthful, refreshed, and alert look.

How Male Eyelid Surgery Works

The procedure begins with a comprehensive consultation at our Lone Tree office, during which Dr. Buford will assess your unique concerns and desired outcomes. Male eyelid surgery typically involves the following steps:

  1. Anesthesia: Depending on the complexity of the procedure and your comfort, local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia may be used to ensure a pain-free experience.
  2. Incision Placement: Dr. Buford will make precise incisions along the natural creases of the eyelids to minimize visible scarring. For upper eyelid surgery, incisions are typically made in the crease of the upper eyelid. Lower eyelid incisions can be made just below the lower lash line or inside the lower eyelid.
  3. Tissue Adjustment: Excess skin, fat, and muscle are carefully addressed based on your specific needs. Our surgeon will remove or reposition the necessary tissues to achieve a more rejuvenated and natural-looking result.
  4. Incision Closure: Once the desired adjustments are made, Dr. Buford meticulously closes the incisions with sutures, skin adhesives, or surgical tape.

With his expertise in male cosmetic surgery, Dr. Buford aims to provide natural and transformative results tailored to your specific, unique needs.

Benefits of Male Eyelid Surgery

At BEAUTY by BUFORD, Dr. Buford understands that men like you also have unique concerns when it comes to their appearance. Male eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty for men, offers a customized solution to address your specific aesthetic goals, enhance your facial features, and help you enjoy the following benefits:

Refreshed and Youthful Appearance

Male eyelid surgery can help eliminate your tired and aged appearance caused by droopy or puffy eyelids. By removing excess skin, tightening muscles, and repositioning fat, the procedure can give you a more alert and refreshed look.

Improved Facial Aesthetics

The eyes are a prominent facial feature, and enhancing their appearance can have a significant impact on your overall facial harmony. Male eyelid surgery can restore balance, symmetry, and proportion to your face, resulting in a more attractive and balanced appearance.

Enhanced Confidence

Addressing aesthetic concerns can significantly boost your self-confidence and self-esteem. Male eyelid surgery allows men like you to get a more youthful and energetic appearance, instilling a sense of confidence in both personal and professional interactions.

What to Expect from Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Buford offers both upper and lower eyelid lift procedures. During your consultation, he will work closely with you to determine which procedure or combination of procedures will work best to achieve your desired results.


Upper Eyelid Surgery

If the skin of your upper eyelids is obscuring your vision or giving your upper face a droopy look, Dr. Buford can remove excess skin and restore a youthful appearance to the area.

For an upper blepharoplasty, Dr. Buford starts by making an incision in the eye's natural crease in as inconspicuous a location as possible. Through this incision, he will remove excess skin and fat until the desired results are achieved.


Lower Eyelid Surgery

A lower eyelid lift may be the best solution to address puffiness or sagging under the eyes. This procedure can eliminate "bags" and tighten the underlying muscles to help you look well-rested and ready to take on the world.

Similarly to the upper blepharoplasty, Dr. Buford will make an incision either at the outer corner of the lower lid, right beneath the eyelashes, or just inside the eyelid.
