Eyelid surgery requires precision. Small details such as the presence of fat and skin around the eyes and the extent of facial aging make eyelid surgery very challenging and technical.

About the Procedure
Eyelid surgery is a corrective procedure that can reduce dark circles or “bags” under the eyes, remove excess wrinkles, and provide a more youthful look. As we age, wrinkles, lines, and puffiness contribute to a tired appearance. Eyelid surgery is often the only way to correct these problems and can be performed in conjunction with other facial procedures such as a facelift or rhinoplasty (nose surgery).
There are so many options when it comes to eyelid surgery, including whether to perform upper eyelid blepharoplasty or an endoscopic brow lift. The best way to determine this is through an examination and a consultation with Dr. Virden.
Reasons for Considering an Eyelid Lift
- Dark circles or bags under the eyes
- Excessive skin or wrinkles surrounding the eyelids
- A tired appearance or puffiness due to inherited factors
Dr. Virden’s Eyelid Lift Procedure
Dr. Virden places incisions along the natural lines of the eyelids to reduce visible scarring. For both upper and lower eyelid surgery, Dr. Virden will usually work on the upper eyelids first to remove any fatty tissue and tighten loose skin. Lower eyelids are completed next to eliminate puffiness and reduce dark circles. In some instances, laser technology may be used to smooth lower eyelid areas. BOTOX® Cosmetic in Reno can also help soften lines and wrinkles before or after surgery.
Surgery generally takes about 1 to 3 hours and is performed in the physician’s office. If additional cosmetic procedures are being performed, eyelid surgery could last longer.

Normally, post-operative instructions call for plenty of rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing process and reduce recovery time. Patients sometimes report minor pain associated with surgery which can be treated with oral medication. While complications are rare, patients can minimize the risk for potential problems by carefully following Dr. Virden’s post-operative directions. The healing process is slightly longer than most other forms of cosmetic surgery, but the benefits are long-lasting. Patients will have a more rested and youthful appearance that lasts for years.
