Upper Eyelid Lift Can Brighten Up Your Eyes


Brighten Up Your Eyes with an Upper Eyelid Lift

The skin naturally loses structure and strength with age, often causing it to droop. This is especially true for the skin above the eyes. When this skin begins to sag, it can give the face a tired or sad appearance. With an eyelid lift, however, it’s possible to brighten up the eyes and as a result, rejuvenate the entire face!

Aging and its Effects on The Eyes

The natural aging process can have a significant impact on the appearance of the eyes. Since the skin around your eyes is thinner than the skin on the rest of your body, it can start to show signs of aging more quickly. 

Aging can lead to skin laxity, fine lines, wrinkles, and thinning skin around the eyes. An eyelid lift can counteract these signs of aging around the eyes, and given that the eyes are the focal point of the face, refresh your entire appearance!

What Exactly is an Eyelid Lift?

An upper eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, is a straightforward cosmetic procedure that can dramatically improve the appearance of the eyes and may improve obstructed vision caused by drooping eyelids. During an eyelid lift, sagging and excess skin of the upper eyelids is removed. The remaining tissue is tightened to give the eyes a more rested look. 

The upper eyelid lift procedure is performed under anesthesia. Excess skin is removed through small incisions that are hidden within the natural creases of the eyelids. The incisions are usually in the upper eyelid creases. Fine stitches are used to close the incisions, which allows for minimal scarring.

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
