Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty

This procedure is recommended for men with excess fat or skin on the upper eyelid.

It begins with a small incision to the upper lid, where the natural fold would be. Excess skin and fat are gently removed, and the incision is closed. This technique helps hide the incision in the eyelid crease. The incision for men is slightly different from the incision for women, so that a more masculine look is achieved.

If the brows are low on the forehead, a conservative brow lift may also be recommended. This procedure can reposition the brows if they have begun to sag. If there is severe drooping that is causing vision problems, a blepharoplasty can restore your field of vision by removing the excess skin that is creating the problem.

Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty

Lower eyelid blepharoplasty may involve three actions:

Recovery from Blepharoplasty

Dr. Sullivan will give you detailed instructions on how to take care of yourself after surgery, and how well you follow them is important in ensuring you have a short recovery time. On average, patients are back to work in about one or two weeks, sometimes less. It takes three or four weeks to heal more fully. It depends on:

If you smoke, it is recommended that you quit at least two weeks prior to surgery and do not resume until well healed, because smoking decreases blood flow and slows healing.

Benefits of Eyelid Surgery for Men

One of the most surprising benefits of eyelid surgery is how much younger and more vital it can make you appear. Rather than a tired appearance, bags and circles, droopy, saggy eyelids that are associated with age, you will probably notice you look more alive, refreshed, and when the surgery is performed by Dr. Sullivan, the results are very natural in appearance. You will look like you – just younger.

We are also now seeing patients in the office again following all guidelines and taking every precaution possible to provide an incredibly safe environment for all patients and staff.

If you have any interest in summer surgery or services, please call us or contact us immediately so we can help you coordinate this before those spots become unavailable. Further, if you are seeking any services or surgery in 2020, we are anticipating an increase in price soon to deal with operating room fee increases.

We are here for any surgical or cosmetic questions you may have. Get in touch with us to see if there is any way we can help you.

We will continue to be here virtually for all those who prefer to have consultations in the comfort of their home.

Our online virtual consultations have been a very popular option for patients from as far away as Asia as well as usual coast to coast patients from New York to California, Oregon to Florida and many in New England.

Our virtual web consultations can be done right in the comfort of your own home, all you need is a secure internet connection and a computer, tablet or smartphone! We have 5 main steps we aim to accomplish with the virtual consultation:

  1. We listen to each patient carefully to establish exactly what it is they are looking for.
  2. We will give instructions to each patient on the specific pictures we will need from them as part of the virtual consultation. We send out sample pictures of just what we need, and the patient can send back their pictures that replicate this.
  3. We have chosen specific before and after photos of Dr Sullivan’s patients in order to show the patients what a prospective patient can expect (note, individual results will vary).
  4. We plan out and together come up with what we think is going to be a superb treatment plan for them.
  5. Finally, we find a time that is best for them that we can get this done.

We welcome you. Please come - we are open & here for you. If you would like to have a VIRTUAL CONSULTATION or an IN PERSON CONSULTATION or have any questions at all, please give us a call at 401-214-5121 or contact us via the website to set up your virtual consultation today!
