Chart Illustrating the Blepharoplasty Process

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.

Surgical Technique

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
    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
    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.

Look More Awake

If you have vision impairment due to excess skin protruding from the upper lid, or suffer from bulging bags under your eyes, then cosmetic eyelid surgery at Nevada Eye Physicians may be the answer for you. This treatment can allow you to look and feel younger and more alert. We welcome you to call one of our nine Nevada locations to schedule a consultation today.
