Byron Wilkes, MD

Board Certified Oculofacial Plastic Surgeon

I grew up in Arkansas, and am so glad to be part of the McFarland team. It’s very exciting to offer the very newest approach for eye plastics surgery to patients in my home state.

Dr. Byron Wilkes is a Board Certified Ophthalmologist who is Fellowship trained in Oculofacial Plastic Surgery. His remarkable skill in plastic surgery is highly specialized. In some cases, he is the only surgeon in Arkansas who can provide specific types of surgical procedures. Dr. Wilkes provides our patients with a wide variety of surgical and non-surgical solutions to medical and cosmetic concerns. Our patients describe him as smart, caring and a good listener. In a few short years, he has already built a reputation among doctors and patients for being an exceptionally skilled surgeon.

Dr. Wilkes was born and raised in Batesville and currently resides in Little Rock with his wife and three children. He has a heart for sharing his surgical skills with those in need, both locally and abroad. He is actively involved in overseas medical missions, including Guatemala. He is also an avid Arkansas Razorback fan and attends football and basketball games whenever he can. He sees patients at our Pine Bluff, Hot Springs, Little Rock and Bryant locations.

    Patients Before & After

    Hear what Dr. Wilkes’ patients are saying:

    When I came in for my initial clinic appointment with Dr. Wilkes, the first thing I noticed was his smile. He was real relaxed and that made me feel real relaxed, too. I’ve had no problems and am nothing but happy with my surgery and my experience here. I even brought three homemade cakes to the clinic just as a small way of saying thanks for everything!

    Dr. Wilkes made me feel very comfortable and at ease about having the Botox injections for my migraines. It has been two weeks since I had the botox injections, and I am pleased to report that I have not had a migraine since then! I hope this is an ongoing solution to help relieve the awful burden of migraine headaches!
