14 Aug What is the Difference Between an Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty?
One way to create a more youthful appearance is to undergo a blepharoplasty, otherwise known as eyelid surgery. Having eyelid surgery can help improve your appearance by removing excess skin and fatty deposits around the eyes, which can cause bags or puffiness. Having bags or dark circles under the eyes is a common complaint that many have, but a blepharoplasty can help you regain a youthful, rejuvenated look. When this is desired, an upper and lower blepharoplasty can be performed, either individually or both, to help rejuvenate the eye area, tighten eyelid muscles, eliminate excessive fat and skin, and increase your confidence.
What is the Difference Between an Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty?
Having an upper blepharoplasty done can help correct a drooping eyelid, which is also known as hooding. When this occurs, it looks like there is a hood over the eyelids, but with a blepharoplasty, an incision is made along the natural fold of the eyelid. Excess tissue and skin are removed, and the muscles around the eye are tightened. Best of all, the incisions created from this procedure are so small that they are not visible after surgery.
If you are looking to rid puffiness under the eyes, or need to correct a lower lid droop, then a lower blepharoplasty is performed. During a lower blepharoplasty, an incision is made on the inside of the lower lid, or inside the lash line to remove excess skin and tissue and to tighten the muscles surrounding the eye area. Just like an upper blepharoplasty, the incisions created from this procedure are so small they are practically invisible.
