It really can be confusing to keep the types of cosmetic surgery for the eyes straight. The term eyelid lift is often used by laypersons to discuss any type of cosmetic surgery to the upper or the lower eyelids. However, there is a difference between each type of surgery and the issues that are addressed.
Lower eyelid surgery is most commonly used to remove fat from beneath the skin that results in the appearance of bags. Excess sagging skin can be removed as well, resulting in a somewhat lifted appearance.
Upper eyelid surgery is generally done to remove accumulation of fat that could hang down over the upper eyelid. Skin can be tightened as well to make you look more awake and refreshed. Both lower eyelid and upper eyelid surgeries can be used to help you to look younger and to lift sagging skin.
A double eyelid surgery is commonly called an Asian eyelid surgery. This involves the creation of a fold for an apparent separation for the upper eyelid and the skin beneath the brow. An expert in eyelid lift in Beverly Hills can discuss which options are best for you.
