Not all eyelid lifts are alike – and if you don’t know the difference between the two main eyelid lift surgeries, you may not know which one is right for your cosmetic needs.
So what is the difference between an upper and lower eyelid lift? And how do you know which eyelid lift surgery is right for you?
All About the Upper Eyelid Lift
The upper eyelid lift – also known as an upper blepharoplasty – is a surgical procedure that corrects the appearance of sagging eyelids and fatty deposits on the upper eyelid. Incisions are typically made within the crease of the upper eyelid, which hides any post-surgical scarring.
If you feel as though your drooping eyelids prevent you from looking rested, alert, and ready to take on the day, you may be a good candidate for an upper eyelid lift. If your sagging eyelids prevent you from enjoying a full field of vision, you should look into scheduling an eyelid lift consultation.

The Down-low on the Lower Eyelid Lift
The lower eyelid lift – also known as a lower blepharoplasty – is designed to correct cosmetic issues associated with the lower eye region. For example, if you have heavy undereye bags, dark shadows, and sagging skin underneath your eye, you may be a good candidate for a lower eyelid lift. The surgical incisions for a lower eyelid lift are made within the lash line, which can help prevent your surgical scarring from being seen.
Dr. Greenberg is a fabulous plastic surgeon. I had an eyebrow lift and he also did my upper and lower lids. The follow up care was excellent as were the results of the surgery. I would highly recommend using him.
