About Eyelid Surgery
A person's eyes are a beautiful aspect of the face that deserve to be seen, but sometimes an excess of skin on top or around the eyes can render an unflattering facial appearance. Our experienced doctors at Nevada Eye Physicians in our nine Nevada locations perform eyelid surgery (known as blepharoplasty) to lift and tighten the lower or upper eyelid, creating an awakened appearance. So many men and women have eyelid surgery at Nevada Eye Physicians to correct sagging skin, leading to improved functionality and facial appearance. Whether upper or lower, eyelid surgery creates a softer, younger appearance and can produce subtle yet noticeable improvements.
Blepharoplasty is a facial cosmetic enhancement that is popular among both women and men. During the initial consult, treatment options will be provided by your physician based on your conditions that need to be corrected. Most often, ideal candidates suffer from excess, sagging skin and folds on the upper eyelid, or puffy skin just under the bottom eyelid. These irregularities can cause functional problems that can get in the way of everyday activities. For a more awake facial appearance, blepharoplasty may be the appropriate treatment for you. If you have excess, hanging skin on the upper eyelid, or puffy bags under the eyes, blepharoplasty can fix this to provide you with a softer appearance.
"Very friendly staff. My hopes were very high and my expectations were exceeded by the end result. Our doctor was personable and professional. He supplied me with detailed explanations. Scheduling was easy. Having 20/20 vision in an eye that was blurry is the highlight of my vacation."- D.P. / Google / Mar 18, 2018

"My experience with Dr. Rouweyha was top notch both at the hospital where he performed emergency surgery and the follow-up visit at his clinic I gave the staff a 4-star only because of what I felt was a completely inappropriate comment made by a staff member to me regarding another staff member. It was likely meant as a joke, but I didn't think it was a bit funny and felt awkward for the target of the "joke.""- S. / Healthgrades / May 09, 2018
"One month ago, I had the PRK procedure performed by Dr. Singh and it has been the greatest decision I have ever made. I am 24 years old and have been wearing glasses since I was in first grade. I live a very active life style going hiking, camping, and playing soccer. Wearing contacts or glasses all the time had become such a hassle that I decided it was time for action. Before my surgery I couldn’t even see the big E on the vision test and now I am happy to say my vision 20/20. Now, I can go hiking without the worry of my contacts falling out and go camping without the worry of forgetting them at home. I am able to see things more clearly than ever. Thank you Dr. Singh and the staff at Nevada Eye Physicians for truly changing my life."- S.C. / Facebook / May 03, 2018
Depending on the nature of the eyelid surgery, some form of anesthesia will be used. This surgery may be done on the top eyelid by itself, on the bottom portion, or a blend of both treatments.
Upper eyelid surgery assists in reducing the loose skin that impairs vision to produce a more flattering look. The incision point is often placed along the natural crease to remove skin and tissue.
Lower blepharoplasty is performed to improve bulging, bloated skin underneath the lower lid. In most cases, an incision is made below the lash line to surgically remove fat, and the skin is gently lifted to create a flatter, smoother look. Sometimes, a nonsurgical laser procedure may be performed to help with discoloration, while injectable fillers can be used for additional volume and smoothness if needed.
What to Expect
Eyelid surgery can take up to two hours depending on whether both eyes or one is treated. After surgery, you should allow several days to rest. Cold compresses can assist in reducing swelling, bruising, and discomfort. The outcomes from eyelid surgery may last a decade or longer, but while they are long lasting, aging does not stop. To continue to enhance your surgical outcomes, nonsurgical treatments at Nevada Eye Physicians such as injections, fillers, and lasers can be added to create a glowing appearance.
