There is nothing much difference between these three surgeries. Eyelid lifting typically refers to blepharoplasty surgery is performed to provide a more rested and youthful eye appearance. Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is covered by some insurance carriers or even Medicare if significant visual field loss is caused by a redundant upper eyelid skin.

And ptosis is a surgery that refers to a droopy upper eyelid where the upper eyelid margin is quite lower than some normal and in moderate, it may be covered part or all of the pupil. Ptosis repair may also be covered by some insurance carriers or visual field loss is caused by the abnormal upper eyelid position.
