About Eyelid Surgery
The eyes are an attractive component of the face that deserve to be shown; however, an abundance of skin above or under the eyes can create an aging look. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Julio Sosa offers blepharoplasty (also known as eyelid surgery) to remove excess skin and lift the upper or lower eyelid, creating an awakened appearance. Countless men and women undergo eyelid surgery at Bloomfield Plastic Surgery to reduce puffy bulges, leading to improved function and appearance. Upper and lower eyelid surgery creates a fresh, youthful appearance and can produce subtle yet striking improvements. If you're interested in rejuvenating your eyes with an eye lift to remove excess skin, schedule a consultation with Dr. Sosa at his office in West Bloomfield, MI.

"I just finished surgery #2 with Dr Sosa for my breast reconstruction after breast cancer. I am very happy with my results. He was transparent with me with what to expect results wise, surgical recovery, and limitations. He spent a lot of time with my at my first appointment before surgery and answered all my questions. In the year following that he has been my doctor he has answered every question I've had. His bed side manner, work, and personality are all 5 stars in my book. Out of all the doctors on my medical team Dr Sosa is my favorite."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Dec 01, 2019
"Absolutely amazing experience. Had a double mastectomy 15 years prior with latissimus dorsi flap on diseased breast due to previous radiation treatment. Outcome was two asymmetrical breasts and uneven nipples. Dr. Sosa was professional, kind and realistic about the potential outcome of the fix. I am absolutely so pleased with the results. He did everything he said he would do and met every expectation I had. I feel so much better about myself. Also, his entire staff was welcoming, accommodating and took the time with me. I never felt rushed or processed through. I will refer Dr. Sosa to everyone I know."- L.T. / Facebook / Nov 26, 2019

Eyelid surgery is a cosmetic surgery that is sought out by both men and women. During your private consultation, treatment alternatives will be discussed with Dr. Sosa based on your symptoms that need to be addressed. In most cases, ideal candidates suffer from excess, hanging skin and folds above their eyes, or bulging skin below the bottom eyelid. These conditions can cause vision impairment that can hinder daily life. For a rejuvenated appearance, eyelid surgery may be the right procedure for you. If you have loose skin that droops on the upper eyelid, or puffy bags under the eyes, blepharoplasty can correct this to give you a younger appearance.
Depending on the complexity of the blepharoplasty, general anesthesia or IV sedation will be given. This surgery may be done on the upper eyelid alone, on the bottom eyelid, or a combination of both upper and lower.
Upper blepharoplasty assists in diminishing the hanging of skin that droops over the eye to create a more appealing eyelid appearance. An incision is usually made along the lash line or crease to trim away tissue and fat.
Lower eyelid surgery is performed to reduce puffy skin under the lower eyelid. The incision is placed just under the lash line to allow access to remove fatty tissue, and the skin is delicately lifted to produce a smoother look. In some cases, a nonsurgical laser treatment can be applied to assist with discoloration while dermal fillers can be used for added smoothness if necessary.
What to Expect
Eyelid surgery can last up to two hours based on whether one or both eyes are treated. After the procedure, you should expect a few days to rest and avoid strenuous activities. Ice packs can help reduce bruising and swelling. The results from eyelid surgery can last years, but even though they are lasting, the aging process does not stop. To complement your surgical outcomes, facial rejuvenation treatments at Bloomfield Plastic Surgery, such as lasers, chemical peels, and fillers, can be paired with this procedure to maintain a fresh appearance.
