What Is a Surgical Eye Lift
There are two types of eyelid surgery, also referred to as blepharoplasty. This includes upper lid blepharoplasty and lower lid blepharoplasty.
An upper lid blepharoplasty is an uncomplicated procedure that removes skin on the upper eyelid. In contrast, a lower lid blepharoplasty helps get rid of bags and wrinkles that are under your eye. Cleveland Clinic explains, “The surgeon will remove or reposition fat using a small incision, and tighten excess skin, if necessary.”
What Is a Non-Surgical Eye Lift
While surgical eye lifts are certainly an option, you can also brighten your eyes and get rid of crow’s feet and under-eye bags without surgery. Non-surgical eye lifts are on the rise because they’re less invasive and have little to no recovery time.
There are several non-surgical eye lift procedures you can choose from too from dermal fillers, Botox, laser therapy, and more. Let’s take a closer look at your options next!
Your first non-surgical eye lift option is dermal fillers. These are injectables that use solutions to plump your skin and fill in wrinkles. Some common brand names you may have heard of include Juvederm, Sculptra, Restylane, Bellafill, and Radiesse.
This procedure only takes a few minutes but you will need more treatments in the future in order to maintain your results. It’s also worth noting there may be mild side effects such as redness.
