Blepharoplasty in Nevada
Open Your Eyes to the Benefits of Blepharoplasty Surgery!
A Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure used to improve obstructed vision. Dr. Brandon Reynolds and Dr. Marvin Spann recommend this surgery to correct deformities and defects of the eyelids, and to aesthetically modify the eye region of the face. A Blepharoplasty surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. Whether you want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids, a Blepharoplasty surgery can rejuvenate the area surrounding your eyes.
- Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision
- Bags under the eyes
- Lower eyelids that droop and reveal white below the iris
- Fine wrinkles and/or excess skin of the lower eyelid
Good candidates for a Blepharoplasty surgery include individuals who are healthy; without medical conditions that will impair the healing process, non-smokers, individuals without serious eye conditions, and people with realistic goals regarding the outcome of a Blepharoplasty surgery.
Remember, the eyelids function as part of the face. Thusly, the appearance of a drooping upper lid may also be due to relaxation of the skin on the forehead and eyebrows. Sometimes laxity of the upper eyelid muscle may cause a drooping eyelid. This is called eyelid “ptosis” and requires a different surgical treatment.
Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons Dr. Brandon Reynolds and Dr. Marvin Spann are highly skilled in performing Blepharoplasty Surgeries. During your initial consultation, they will evaluate your facial anatomy thoroughly and will discuss which procedure will best remedy your concerns.
Blepharoplasty Surgery: Cost & Health Insurance Coverage
Most health insurance does not cover cosmetic surgery or its complications. However, if a Blepharoplasty surgery is performed to eliminate the redundant skin covering the eyelashes or your eyelids droop and impair your vision, it may be covered by insurance.

Blepharoplasty Surgery: Recovery
After your Blepharoplasty surgery, you will be sent home with a detailed list of post-procedure instructions to follow. These instructions often include how to care for your eyes, oral medications to take as well as medications to apply topically to your eyes to assist in the healing process and reduce the potential risk of infection. You will also be given information on specific concerns to look for at the surgical site, as well as instructions as to when you should follow-up with either Dr. Brandon Reynolds or Dr. Marvin Spann. If you have any questions regarding these guidelines, be certain to ask prior to leaving the surgery center.
Following surgery, it is normal to experience swelling, slight to moderate bruising, dry or irritated eyes, as well as discomfort that can be controlled with medication, cold compresses, and ointment. Irritation at the incision site is also possible. Scars from these incisions generally fade well over time and patients often comment that the positive benefits from a Blepharoplasty surgery far outweigh the minimal scarring.
