You did it: You finally made the decision to seek out cosmetic surgery to help with sagging eyelids, undereye bags, and eye wrinkles. You’re done with being disappointed by eye creams and serums that promise you the world, only to come up short. You want to look and feel youthful again, with eyes that sparkle and keep the world guessing as to how young you really are.
But when it comes down to it, which cosmetic surgical procedure is right for your needs: an upper eyelid lift, or a lower eyelid lift?
Signs You Need an Upper Eyelid Lift
An upper eyelid lift – also known as an upper blepharoplasty – is a surgical procedure that corrects signs of upper eyelid sagging, including fatty bags, excess skin, and wrinkles and fine lines. During the upper eyelid lift, your plastic surgeon will make an incision within the eye crease and remove excess fat while trimming away loose skin. The end result can make you look more alert, well-rested, and much younger.
You may need an upper eyelid lift if:
- You have baggy eyelids
- You feel like your eyelids are drooping
- You have excess skin on your upper eyelids
If your eyelid skin interferes with your vision, your health insurance may cover some or all of the costs associated with your upper blepharoplasty procedure.

Signs You Need a Lower Eyelid Lift
A lower eyelid lift, or a lower blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that focuses on addressing issues associated with undereye bags, excess skin, and more. The primary goal of the lower eyelid lift is to remove those bags and excess skin, leaving behind firmer, tighter, and more youthful-looking skin.
You’re a good candidate for a lower eyelid lift if:
- You have heavy undereye bags that won’t go away, even after getting plenty of sleep.
- You have excess skin underneath your eyes.
- You have fatty deposits underneath and around your eyes.
