What Eyelid Surgery Can Achieve

By removing excess eyelid skin, firming loose skin and stretched-out muscles and removing excess fatty tissue from the upper and lower eyelids, Dr. Coscia can give your eyes a refreshed, youthful expression.

Furthermore, the procedure can combat other telltale signs of aging, such as puffy lower lids, under-eye bags or dark circles and fine lines around the outer corners of the lids.

Eyelid surgery has functional benefits, too. If excess, heavy upper eyelid skin spills over your lashline and obscures your line of sight, eyelid surgery can help. Removing the excess skin along the upper eyelids clears the obstruction for a clearer visual field.

Treatment Details

Eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure performed with anesthesia. Surgery can treat the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both at the same time.

The incisions for upper eyelid surgery are made within the natural folds and creases of the upper lids; the incisions for lower eyelid surgery are made below the lower lashline or on the inside of the lids. This ensures that resulting scarring is hardly visible.

The procedure steps vary based on your unique eyelid anatomy and your treatment goals. Normally excess skin and fat are removed and loose or stretched-out muscles are tightened.

Expect to take one to two weeks off from work to recover from surgery. You can enjoy your refreshed appearance and improved confidence for years to come.
