Blepharoplasty typically refers to surgery of the upper and lower eyelid to address excess skin, fat, and any other anatomical issue. For example, you can undergo an upper eyelid blepharoplasty, a lower eyelid blepharoplasty or both. Ptosis surgery refers to any surgical procedure specifically to improve the position of the eyelid margin relative to the pupil such as levator muscle advancement, levator muscle resection, or frontalis sling surgery.
