Blepharoplasty is a type of eyelid surgery that can be used to treat your lower lids, upper lids, or both. No matter whether you are encountering functional issues with your eyelids or you simply want to improve the appearance of your eyes, eyelid surgery can help to give this area a boost so that you can get your confidence back.
Upper Vs Lower Blepharoplasty
There are two different types of blepharoplasty; upper eyelid surgery and lower eyelid surgery. So, let’s take a look at both options and the difference between them.
Upper eyelid surgery is ideal for patients whose upper eyelids have sagged low enough so that the patient’s eyelids become covered or reduced. On the flip side, if you have puffy or saggy lower eyelids, lower eyelid lift surgery is going to be the better choice for you.
No matter which type of eyelid surgery you go for, the procedure is going to involve excess tissue and fat being removed from around the eye to create a more youthful and refreshed facial appearance. The difference is simply where in the eye area that the fat and tissue are going to be removed.
