Eyelid Surgery Benefits

When performed by an expert plastic surgeon like Dr. Cambeiro, blepharoplasty can:

  • Resolve baggy lower eyelids
  • Eliminate excess skin from the upper eyelids
  • Increase vision by removing drooping skin that obstructs your sight

Eyelift surgery will not remove crow’s feet or completely remove dark circles. Still, it can be done in conjunction with other procedures like facelift, injectables, and laser skin resurfacing to enhance facial appearances.

Your Eyelid Surgery Plan

The road to beautiful eyes starts with a consultation. Dr. Cambeiro will discuss your personal motivations and goals, provide necessary instructions for preparations and recovery, and inform you of what you can expect from the procedure in detail. To ensure that blepharoplasty with Dr. Cambeiro is right for you, be sure to read these eleven important questions that you should ask during your consultation.

Because blepharoplasty corrects the delicate skin of the eyelids, the procedure takes the hand of a skilled surgeon to produce the best results. Dr. Cambeiro will create a surgical plan that is tailored to your unique facial anatomy and desired goals. With your input, he strives to achieve all your reasonable expectations to enhance your facial balance and appearance.

During your consultation, he will:

  • Show you a short video of the procedure
  • Give instruction on how to prepare for surgery and what to do during recovery
  • Listen to your concerns and answer all of your questions
  • Discuss the risks involved
  • Explain his technique and what you can expect from the results

You will be fully informed about the realistic possibilities from eyelid surgery and the results you can expect. Dr. Cambeiro will disclose all information about the procedure with full transparency.

Are You a Suitable Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

The decision to have eyelid surgery comes down to if the procedure is right for you. Dr. Cambiero will help you determine if its benefits suit your needs or if other facial procedures would be better for your aesthetic goals.

Eyelid surgery helps patients who have:

  • Excess skin that conceals the natural fold of the upper eyelids
  • Puffy upper eyelids, making eyes look worn and tired
  • Upper eyelid skin that impairs vision
  • Lower eyelid wrinkles that resemble crepe paper
  • Hooded upper eyelids
  • Under-eye circles or bags

As with any surgery, it’s best if the patient is in good health and a non-smoker. Also, realistic expectations and a positive attitude are essential to achieve optimal results. Eyelid surgery is designed to refresh the upper eye area. For more extensive facial correction, you may consider a brow lift or facelift surgery.

Why Dr. Cambeiro?

  • voted one of Las Vegas' top plastic surgeons 15 years in row
  • Impressive Credentials: Mayo Clinic trained and Double-Board Certified
  • An Honest, caring approach with a dedication to patient safety and satisfaction

The Eyelid Surgery Procedure

Blepharoplasty takes about one to two hours if your upper and lower eyelids are done at the same time. Dr. Cambeiro performs all surgeries at one of his two state-of-the-art surgical centers in Henderson or Las Vegas. He will likely use local anesthesia with oral sedation or general anesthesia for your comfort during the operation.

When combining upper and lower blepharoplasty, Dr. Cambeiro starts with the upper lids first.

He will then:

  • make his incisions along the natural lines of your eyelids to separate the skin from the underlying tissue.
  • remove any excess skin and fat (and muscle tissue if indicated).
  • close the incisions with tiny sutures.

A lower blepharoplasty employs multiple techniques. One involves an incision inside the lower eyelid to remove excess fat. This incision will be hidden and produce no visible scarring. Another method uses an incision along the eyelash margin to remove excess skin and fat. This cut line will fade after a short period of time.

Dr. Cambeiro can combine upper and lower eyelid surgery, or complete each as a standalone procedure.

Unrivaled Mastery

Eyelid Surgery Recovery

During eyelid surgery recovery, cold compresses and lubricating ointment may be applied. Your eyes may also be covered loosely with gauze after surgery. Dr. Cambeiro and his staff will give you specific instructions on post-surgery care, medications to take for comfort and optimal healing, and what to look for at the incision sites. You will be scheduled for follow-up visits with Dr. Cambiero to monitor your healing progress.

Expect some bruising, swelling, and irritation initially. We recommend that you follow post-surgery instructions precisely to manage these side-effects properly.

Eyelid Surgery FAQs

Blepharoplasty is one of the least painful procedure performed by plastic surgeons. Patients rarely need strong pain medications after surgery. Most patients can manage any discomfort with over-the-counter medications like Tylenol or aspirin.

Because the skin on the eyelid is thin, the risk of scarring is minimal. Also, strategically positioned incisions either hide or place scarring to where they are not noticeable.

When upper lids droop over the eyes, they can impede vision. Upper blepharoplasty will help reveal the eyes and help eliminate any sight impairment caused by drooping lids.

Although elective surgery is rarely covered by health insurance, because eyelid surgery helps with a patient’s vision, upper blepharoplasty is rarely covered by your insurance provider. Contact them or feel free to reach out to us for more details.
