Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery in Las Vegas Lets You Look Your Best in Every Way
Siems LASIK & Eye Center is proud to perform treatments with medical and aesthetic advantages. Our cosmetic eyelid surgery in Las Vegas NV helps improve vision, reduce bags and puffiness under the eyes, and make you look more alert and energetic.
This common procedure is performed to help enhance ocular appearance. This is accomplished via various surgical techniques on the eyelids and sometimes on the surrounding tissue. Also known as blepharoplasty, this treatment was the fourth most commonly requested cosmetic procedure in 2012.
Upper Eyelid Surgery Information
This procedure is most often performed on patients with droopy lids to give them a younger appearance and possibly enhance their vision. During the procedure, our ophthalmologist marks the natural creases of the lids to keep scarring at a minimum and within the natural folds.
After making an incision, excess fat in the lid is either repositioned or removed, followed by the removal of skin and any loose muscle. The incision is closed with ultra-thin sutures, which minimize the visibility of any scars. Prior to having any cosmetic eyelid surgery, the patient must stop taking aspirin for 7-10 days.
Lower Eyelid Surgery Information
This procedure is most commonly performed to minimize bags and puffiness under the eyes, giving people the appearance of being refreshed rather than tired. Our ophthalmologist makes an incision in an inconspicuous place along the lower lashes before removing excess skin, muscle, and fat. Fine sutures, invisible to the naked eye, are then used to close the incision.
Treatable Eyelid Conditions
There are several treatable conditions that can be improved with cosmetic procedures on eyelids, such as:
- Bags Under the Eyes

Recovery From Eyelid Surgery
A certain amount of bruising and swelling is expected. Keeping the head elevated and applying cold compresses can help reduce it and relieve any discomfort. For 10 days following the procedure, the eye area must be kept clean. We may recommend applying an ointment or eye drops to keep the eyes from feeling itchy, dry, or sticky. Strenuous activities and bending down should be avoided for the first week or two.
