Why Eyelid Surgery Is Right for You


Why Eyelid Surgery Is Right for You

As the focal point of the face, the eyes commonly become the target area for cosmetic surgery. The eyes can undergo striking changes during the aging process, causing people to lose a bright, rested appearance of the face.

Eyelid surgery is a popular plastic surgery procedure that refreshes the eye area to make the entire face appear more youthful. If you’re looking to improve the appearance of your eyes, eyelid surgery is right and an excellent solution for you.

What Is Eyelid Surgery?

What To Expect From Eyelid Surgery Plastic Surgery Trends Eyelid Surgery Is Right

Also called blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery is a plastic surgery procedure that involves removing excess tissue around the eyes to tighten the skin and reduce puffiness. The procedure can help you achieve both functional and aesthetic goals, given that excess tissue around the eyes can cause problems with vision in addition to creating cosmetic concerns. 

The Eyelid Lift Procedure

During eyelid surgery, your plastic surgeon will make incisions in the eyes’ natural creases to minimize scarring. The creases are typically made in the upper eyelid creases and under the lower lid lashes. Through these incisions, excess skin, fat, and tissue are carefully removed. Then, the incisions are closed with fine stitches. 

Why Eyelid Surgery is Right For You

Eyelid surgery can provide the following benefits to the eye area:

  • Tightens and lifts the skin around the eyes
  • Eliminates excess skin
  • Reduces eye puffiness and under-eye bags

Swelling and bruising resulting from eyelid surgery generally subsides within 7 to 10 days of the procedure. The stitches can typically be removed within a week of the procedure, while some light sensitivity may persist for a couple of weeks. Additionally, since the incisions are aligned with the eyes’ natural creases, as the scarring from eyelid surgery fades over time it becomes  barely visible.

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.
