OPHTHALMOLOGIST, RECONSTRUCTIVE AND PLASTIC SURGEON

Dr. DeAngelis has obtained extensive training in ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery, making her an uniquely skilled surgeon to Newsom Eye and the Tampa Bay area. Her refined surgery techniques are used to repair eyelids, tear ducts, and orbital bones. Dr. DeAngelis performs blepharoplasty surgery, also known as eye lid lift surgery, to remedy ptosis or droopy eyelids for both medical and cosmetic needs. This procedure can help eliminate excess fatty tissue, puffy upper and/or lower lids, and tightening of the skin to enhance appearance.
