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.
"I've been wearing glasses/contacts since I can remember and am a blind, blind bat. I've been to so many different optometrists, yet Dr. Orton (O.D.) may be one of my favorites. He is a no small talk, straight to the point kind of guy. He is extremely, extremely thorough and works hard at his job. He doesn't wait for the techs to come in and clean the equipment, he'll jump up and do it himself. I felt I was in good hands and his quiet manner made me feel at ease, even through getting my eyes dilated which I HATE."- S.G. / Yelp / Oct 07, 2017
"I took my son there to see the pediatric ophthalmologist.. he was 18 then and is 26 now but had an accident that left his right eye turned outward.. the staff at Nevada eye and ear are wonderful and caring.. I had been to other placesac who told me my son would be blind. Due to his brain injury.. not here.. they took him into to surgery, corrected his eye muscles and ban just like that his eyes are straight and sees 20/20 with glasses.. it's very hard to examine someone who is a challenged or maybe they can't speak.. thank you Nevada eye and ear for fixing my son's eyesight and giving him his confidence back.. the optical shop is awesome as far as helping you figure out what he needed.. prices are good.. staff is caring.. as a pts mother, thank you and God bless you"- T.L. / Yelp / Jan 10, 2014

"Yesterday was the day I finally gave into LASIK For everyone asking here's all the info on who I went to and how it went! (I'll start off with the final product for those who want to skip the details):Final Product: When I woke up this morning (24 Hours after the procedure). My eyes we're... well... WOW Like my eyesight was comparable to HD when I went to my post op today my Dr. confirmed that I now have 20/20 vision and it will only get better as the healing process continues! My eyesight was so bad beforehand, it's truly a blessing that I haven been able to get this corrective surgery. I cannot wait to explore the world with my new eyes Who I went to: Dr. Surjeet Singh, MD. Over the past 5 years he has successfully completed over 5,000 lasik procedures. He also came highly recommended by my friends and dentist at @bellasmileslv , @aseemthedream73 , & @ctchow34 (Who by the way are the best dentist in town, if you ever need a recommendation for that ).Where: Nevada Eye PhysiciansActual Procedure: So forewarning, I may have a biased review on this procedure because I totally missed the memo that I was supposed to administer the Valium (sedative) to myself before starting/and or getting to the office (that part is still unclear because in order to not get freaked out I wanted to hear as little as legally possible before starting it) LOL.When people say its painless it totally is. You feel a bit of pressure at some points, but nothing too drastic. If you have any type of fear of the unknown that will be heightened and may cause anxiety that only last for a few minutes (that's how long the procedure takes).He walked me through the entire thing and ensured I stayed as calm as possible (prob wouldn't of be necessary if I had the Valium ).All in all though it went well. Scary, anxiety filled, but short, quick and painless.After the Procedure: The following hours after, my sensitivity to light was immense. I administered the eye drops I was given, went to my post op after and got some more numbing cream.At that point Dr. Singh confirmed that the procedure went as planned and it looked excellent. I got my prescription for my Valium, took that, put more eye drops in, and proceeded to pass out with my protective googles Woke up the next morning and then ... the final product is listed above for anyone who missed it!"- J.D. / Yelp / Jul 21, 2017
"What a rockstar surgeon!! - I had my Asian eyelid surgery done with Dr. Myint and Co2 laser. What a dream treatment. Dr. Myint gave me a double eyelid but didn't erase who I am or my ethnicity. I just look so sexy and my friends are dying to know my secret. Dr. Myint, I can share you with the world because we need more doctors like you!!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Jul 26, 2017
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.
