Eyelid surgery is an excellent way to restore some youth to your face and enliven your expressions. When you opt to get this procedure, also known as blepharoplasty, at Bayshore Plastic Surgery, you can take comfort in knowing that your plastic surgeon, Dr. Daniel Greenwald, has more than a decade of experience performing eyelid surgery on patients from Tampa, Clearwater, St Petersburg, Sarasota, Naples, and the surrounding area. Educated and trained in plastic surgery at Princeton, Yale, and the University of Chicago, Dr. Greenwald has the knowledge and expertise to give your eyes not only a rejuvenated look, but one that is also natural and subtle.

Eyelid surgery was developed to remove excess fat and drooping skin from the upper and lower lids. These actions can correct heavy-looking brows and puffiness that make a face look tired, worn out, and older than it is. An eye lid lift or blepharoplasty procedure can also address the following specific issues:

  • Puffy bags, and sometimes dark under-eye circles
  • Skin that hangs loosely from the upper eyelids
  • Fine wrinkles and excess skin of the lower eyelids
  • Excess skin that hides the natural folds of the upper eyelids

What happens during eyelid surgery?

At Bayshore Plastic Surgery in Tampa, eyelid surgery begins with the elimination of excess skin on the upper and lower eyelids. Dr. Greenwald will then remove the fat tissue deposits under the eyes that create puffy bags. The incisions are carefully closed and the surgery is completed. Noticeable scarring is rare because Dr. Greenwald creates incisions in the eyelid’s natural creases. Sometimes he enters the skin from inside the lower lid to remove fat, which leaves no external scar. This is the same incision used when a patient undergoes a mini facelift.

Surgical Concerns

After eyelid surgery some patients may experience double or blurred vision for several days, and may also have some swelling at the corner of their eyelids. There may also be slight asymmetry or scarring, and the appearance of whiteheads after removing the stitches.
