What is an Eyelid lift?

Blepharoplasty surgery restores a youthful appearance to the eyelid and lower eyelid/cheek junction. A loss of volume under the lower eyelids can cause patients to look tired. In some individuals, a droopy upper eyelid is a problem. This occurs when excess tissue and skin collect on the eyelid, causing a sagging look. Both of these are common facial concerns that Las Vegas, NV board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi can correct with blepharoplasty. This surgery, which has become increasingly popular in patients as young as 35, targets excess skin, fat and tissues, and tightens the underlying muscles to create a rejuvenated look.

What are the Benefits of Eyelid Surgery?

A personalized eyelid surgery performed by Dr. Khorsandi can achieve dramatic results with a number of great benefits, including:

  • Expanding vision by improving line of sight
  • Producing a more awake, alert look
  • Achieving a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance
  • Reducing sagging and/or drooping in the upper and lower eyelids
  • Removing bags under the eyes
  • Improving the contour and aesthetic of the eyes
  • Increasing comfort by reducing rubbing of skin folds
  • Diminishing dark circles under eyes
  • Addressing hollowing under lower eyelids

So I wanna start off by saying I live in Utah & made several trips to Vegas to have a consultation, pre-opp, and surgery at V.I.P & I couldn't be happier I made this decision. First of all I read so many reviews about this place before booking an appointment & got the notion Dr. Khorsandi had bad bed side manners and to just go in there with that in mind, so I went in and I was completely blown away at how far from the truth that could be. I definitely wouldn't take any negative comments seriously because all the other amazing things I read about him and his office were completely on point. I went in for a breast augmentation & showed him a picture, told him that's what I want and let him do the rest. I let him choose sizing, profile, etc. and very happy I did. When you read up a lot on implants you think you know what you're talking about until you go to a professional and they say something else other than what you think, it can be conflicting but I chose to go with my gut & allow him to make all the decisions. I was scared at the sizing he chose, it sounded like they were gonna be too big but I was totally wrong, they came out perfectly! I'm also a recovering drug addict & as soon as he read that on my chart he said he didn't want me to have to take any narcotics and comped a nerve blocker for me instead, I walked out of his office with tears in my eyes because I had never had a doctor be so understanding and kind about me being in recovery. & not only that but not wanting to risk putting me in a situation that could end in relapse. The girls in the office were so sweet & reassuring as well. I loved Patricia! She was easy to communicate with & gave me great advice, that if she didn't tell me prior to surgery I might have had a bad experience. The day of surgery I was terrified & probably overly annoyingly nervous, but all the staff at the surgical center were so understanding, they entirely calmed my nerves when it was time to go under that the last thing I remember is laughing with the nurse putting me under! Dr.Khorsandi also came by to draw on my chest before surgery and had the most kind words to say & is just a super down to earth person. I feel like he went above and beyond by just being himself & that honestly is the most amazing feeling because it reassured me he was being sincere and genuine the entire time. He definitely is blunt & to the point but he knows what he's doing!! His team reached out a few times while I was recovering & I couldn't be happier with the results & my breasts haven't even dropped yet. This experience was worth every penny. VIP plastic surgery is my new go to spot & very worth the drive! Thank you dr.khorsandi.

I have been to several top rated doctors in Las Vegas for breast augmentation consultations. I chose Dr Khorsandi because he’s extremely knowledgeable and detail oriented. Also, I have been going to him for under eye fillers since 2016 and I was always happy with the results (this year I went to ANOTHER "top rated" doctor is Las Vegas for filler and I fully regret it... my results were uneven , thankfully Dr Khorsandi is helping me fix it). All I have to say Dr Khorsandi is simply the best when it comes to quality and patient care. He’s very kind and extremely knowledgeable. His staff is wonderful as well, they have always been really nice to me. I am really thankful.

I was overdue for my breast implant replacement. I knew I wanted to go smaller, plus have a lift as well. A couple of years prior to my ten year replacement anniversary, my best friend invited me to VIP’s open house event. My friend use to work with Dr. Khorsandi, prior to him opening his own practice. She saw first hand how he consulted with potential patients and was in awe of his professionalism with his consultations. He never promised anything he couldn’t deliver and always had the patients best health reasons and safety in mind. This impressed my friend and why she always spoke very highly of Dr. Khorsandi and had the upmost respect for him. She also witnessed how devoted and serious he was in his career and how hard he studied for his medical board certifications. At the open house event, I met Dr. Khorsandi and he gave me consultation on what I wanted done with my breast reduction. I was very pleased with what he could offer me. He also suggested I get blepharoplasty surgery as well. I was in full agreement. When I was finally ready to have my surgical procedures done, I went to a couple of other plastic surgeons for consultations, but my instincts directed me to Dr. Khorsandi. I’m glad I did. He is very knowledgeable and professionalism all around. His staff is kind and always available to answer any questions. My procedure went very well and I am so delighted with the results. My breast reduction with lift looks very flattering for my body frame and my blepharoplasty took 10 years off my face. I’m so happy I went with my dear friend’s recommendation to have Dr. Khorsandi perform my cosmetic procedure. I will definitely use him in the near future for my next wish list procedure, liposuction. .

Surgical Techniques

The procedure may either be performed on the upper eyelid only or the lower lid or both. There will be a difference in approaches when it comes to the upper and lower eyelids, but the method is similar: removing any loose skin or tissue and extracting or repositioning the fat deposit.

UPPER EYELID LIFT

As we age, the elasticity of the upper eyelid is lost, producing sagging of the lid, skin stretching of the muscle, and protrusion of the eyelid fat. The result is often a tired appearance with excessive upper eyelid skin, fat, and muscle, giving a “droopy,” tired look. In female patients, one of the most common complaints is an inability to wear makeup in the upper eyelids because the makeup often smudges in the excess skin, and a diminished natural eyelid crease.

Upper blepharoplasty is used to correct sagging upper eyelids. During the procedure, a precise incision is placed in the crease of the upper eyelid. Excess skin is removed along with a thin strip of loose muscle, sometimes the herniated fat is removed or cauterized to reduce its size. The skin is then closed with a fine suture. After 5 – 7 days, the suture is gently removed, leaving behind a thin scar that is well hidden in the lid crease.

Insurance plans occasionally cover upper blepharoplasty surgery when the upper eyelid skin is so excessive that it disturbs the vision. If you believe you may be a candidate for insurance-covered blepharoplasty, you will need to have visual field testing prior to your consultation with Dr. Khorsandi.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

The goal of lower blepharoplasty surgery is to restore a smooth, natural contour to the area beneath the eyes by correcting puffiness and swelling, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Lower eyelid surgery may also improve the tear trough area — the crease running from the inner corner of the eyes to the cheek.

Dr. Khorsandi uses individualized techniques to correct the lower eyelid. Depending on the patient, this may include removing excess fat (if present) and/or repositioning of fat to avoid a hollow appearance. In order to maintain the natural shape of the eyelids, lower lid tightening is sometimes performed. Outpatient lower eyelid blepharoplasty is most commonly performed under general or local anesthesia with sedation and may require an overnight stay if combined with other procedures.

Patients may engage in light activity the day after surgery. Sutures, if present, are removed at about 7 days postop. Depending on any accompanying procedures, a return to normal activity may take 1 – 2 weeks. The facial appearance will improve over the following 4 – 6 weeks with a resolution of bruising and swelling. Proper skin care and sun protection, including sunglasses, are essential during healing.

Expected Cost

The average fee for this surgery can range from $6,000 – $8,500 if both the lower and upper eyelids are addressed. In most cases, insurance will not cover cosmetic eyelid surgery. However, for some patients, insurance may be applicable. This is usually the case with patients who have their vision affected by a drooping upper eyelid. Virtual consultations are $100 and in-person consults $300 the consult fee goes towards the procedure they are non-refundable.

Noninvasive Eyelid Procedures

If you do not qualify for eyelid surgery or you prefer a less invasive option, we offer several treatments that can rejuvenate the skin around your eyes. Treatment alternatives may include dermal fillers or wrinkle relaxers, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, RF microneedling, and laser skin resurfacing. Each of these treatments offers a unique set of benefits, and in some cases, we can combine them for enhanced results. Based on your needs, Dr. Khorsandi will determine which nonsurgical eye lift procedures work best for you.
