Eyelid Surgery with Your Las Vegas Ophthalmologist

Las Vegas is full of things to do, but if you don’t feel confident about the way you look it’s hard to enjoy those things. Your eyelids may be one thing that makes you uncomfortable so at some point you might seek a solution to fix the problem. Brimhall Eye Center might be a good place to turn and we may have some solutions if your eyelids are giving you trouble.

Eyelid Surgery

There are several different types of eyelid surgery so it is important to do your research before you commit to anything. Knowing who your doctor is and what background they have is important.   Having a board-certified ophthalmologist or optometrist is key when you go into any situation where you are considering surgery for the eyes. Each of the doctors at Brimhall Eye Center has a strong background in ophthalmology and can help you with any needs you may have when it comes to your eyelids.

Droopy Eyelids

As people age, they may develop bags under their eyes. When the bags don’t disappear, they may seek out the care of an optometrist or ophthalmologist. Surgery for droopy eyes (blepharoplasty) can reverse the clock and make them look younger. The surgical procedure to correct this is relatively simple and only takes one to two hours. Recovery is different for everyone but usually takes between five to seven days.

Upper or Lower Eyelid Surgery

If your eyelids sag or you see bags under your eyes you might consider undergoing eyelid surgery.  During either procedure, the ophthalmologist will make a series of small incisions. The location of the incision depends on the type of surgical procedure you are having, but they will always be hidden.  Healing will take time, but the end result will be a more youthful appearance. When you leave our office, it will be as if you never had surgery because we use techniques which minimize scarring.
