Eyelid Surgery in Melbourne

All you need to know

Droopy, puffy or sagging around the eyes is often the first signs of ageing. When the skin of the upper eyelids starts to sag, it can often result in you looking tired and older than your actual age.

Your upper eyelids obscuring your vision is another result of ageing. Luckily, aesthetic eyelid surgery at our Melbourne centre can be performed to eliminate these problems.

Your Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery (or blepharoplasty) removes excess skin, fat and muscle to restore your eye area to a smoother, more youthful contour. Your eyelid surgery will be performed as a Day Case at our Melbourne Private Hospital, and is just one of the many plastic surgery procedures in which we specialise.

We pride ourselves on providing the highest standard of care and safety before, during and after your eyelid surgery. The procedure takes less than an hour and our patients can return home by the afternoon, with overnight stays also available. Approximately 90 per cent of our blepharoplasty patients return to normal activity within three days.

We specialise in performing the following Eyelid Surgery Procedures:
  • Upper Eyelid Surgery Upper eyelid surgery removes the loose hood of excess skin from the upper eyelid. Once this excess skin is removed, it allows the eye to appear more open and creates a refreshed appearance.
  • Lower Eyelid Surgery Lower eyelid surgery removes the wrinkled skin from the lower eyelids and also the fat pads that create bags under the eyes. Our Melbourne clinic specialises in a minimally invasive approach to Lower Eyelid Surgery to minimise visible scars and speed up recovery.
  • Upper and Lower Eyelid Surgery Upper and Lower Eyelid Surgery can be combined to achieve optimal aesthetic enhancement for the eye area. The benefit of combining these procedures are apparent both in terms of the cosmetic result and cost-savings.
  • Eyelid Surgery for Asian Eyes Eyelid Surgery can also be used to create an upper eyelid crease to “westernize” Asian eyes. This procedure opens the eye area, allowing your eyes to shine as the centre of your face.

Blepharoplasty cannot remove crow’s feet or wrinkles. However, any of our eyelid surgeries can be combined with other procedures such as a browlift, facelift or non-surgical treatments to achieve complete facial rejuvenation. Talk with your plastic surgeon, Dr. Allan Kalus, about your options to determine what’s best for you.
