Blepharoplasty, also called cosmetic eyelid surgery or eyelid lift, is a cosmetic procedure that eliminates sagging skin on the upper lids and bulges of fat on the lower lids to create a more refreshed, youthful appearance.
There are many similarities between functional and cosmetic blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery), but the main difference is that functional blepharoplasty is specifically designed to remove sagging skin that blocks your field of vision.
Male blepharoplasty is specifically tailored to the male aesthetic and considers male anatomy. Men have thicker skin and heavier eye muscles than women. Additionally, the upper eyelid crease and brows are slightly lower.
Asian blepharoplasty, also known as double eyelid surgery, widens the eyes while restoring a more youthful appearance.
Ptosis is a medical term for droopy eyes caused by weakened eyelid muscles. In this condition, the upper eyelid margin (edge of the eyelid) sags in front of the pupil, blocking the field of vision.
Canthoplasty and canthopexy are two different techniques used to widen the eyes into a flattering almond shape and improve the look of drooping eyelids.
