Male Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) – This surgical procedure rejuvenates the appearance of the area surrounding the eyes, known as the periorbital region. Blepharoplasty gives a rested, healthy and refreshed look to the face and eyes. The procedure is used to correct excessive skin, fine wrinkles, droopiness, bags under the eyes, and saggy, loose skin of the eyelids. As tissues around the eyes age, support to delicate structures may be compromised, and therefore, specialized adjunctive procedures may be beneficial to correct loss of structural support to the eyelids and periorbital tissues.
Dr. Calloway is an experienced Oculoplastic Surgeon with special training and expertise in eyelid surgery. He has been performing specialized eyelid procedures including cosmetic and complex reconstructive procedures for over 25 years. During his years as a Plastic Surgeon at Mayo Clinic, he helped develop and refine laser assisted eyelid surgeries allowing less invasive treatments of the eyelids. During his tenure, Dr. Calloway has also helped train hundreds of physicians and surgeons from around the world in these more sophisticated eyelid procedures. While at Mayo Clinic, Dr. Calloway helped introduce minimally invasive technologies to the international community and has been a featured speaker and educator at many international Medical Conferences. As every patient presents with specific and unique aspects of eyelid aging and pathology, Dr. Calloway recognizes that every procedure needs to be tailored and customized to the individual. Consequently, eyelid surgery represents many surgical techniques that are blended and adapted to each specific patient to achieve the desired natural rejuvenation of the eyelids.
Men also seeking to treat signs of aging in the forehead, eyelids, face and neck areas can combine their Eyelid surgery with a Facelift, Necklift and/or Browlift surgery. Dr. Calloway offers all of his male patients a comprehensive Plastic Surgery consultation in order to offer the best options suited for their desired results.
The cost of the surgery will vary depending on the procedures utilized. The surgery is performed under local anesthesia with mild sedation or under general anesthesia in our Accredited Outpatient Surgical Facility. The usual recovery is approximately 3-5 days before the microscopic sutures are removed. Exercise regimens are usually resumed in 1-2 weeks. The results are immediately visible and often relatively permanent in longevity.
