Types of Eyelid Surgeries
There are three major types of eyelid surgeries, and the procedure for them varies depending on the shape of your eyes, your desired results, and your health conditions. Your surgeon will recommend what type of procedure is best for you and your desired results.
1. Upper Eyelid Surgery
This type is used to improve vision loss and the appearance of the eye due to aging or genetics. As the name implies, this is a procedure focused on the upper eyelid. This surgery can restore the function of the eye and give you a more rounded and open appearance.
2. Lower Eyelid Surgery
This surgery is based around the lower lid and eyes and focuses on removing wrinkles in the skin, correcting bags, and improving appearance.
3. Double Eyelid Surgery
A crease can be made in the upper eyelid in a double eyelid surgery that creates a larger and wider-looking eye. This is a procedure that is gaining popularity and is often referenced by patients.
