Cosmetic eyelid surgery (aka double fold surgery) is the most commonly performed cosmetic surgical procedure among Asians. We regularly perform hundreds of these procedures every year.

"The Eyes are the window to your soul" - William Shakespeare.

There are two distinct types of Asian eyelid surgery:

  • Double eyelid surgery: Cosmetic procedure to create or to reshape the double fold
  • Eye lift surgery: Cosmetic procedure to make one's eyes appear younger for an older Asians with loose skin.

This section is dedicated to the double eyelid surgery procedure.

Why Asian Eyelid Surgery (double eyelid surgery)?
Asians' eyes are often described as being small and "slit-like" and this causes an Asian eye to appear:

  • Small
  • Indistinct
  • Masculine
  • Unattractive 

The presence of double eyelids can make the Asian eye appear larger, more feminine and ultimately, more attractive.

These are the reasons why Asian Eyelid Surgery (aka double eyelid surgery) is popular among Asians.

What is Asian Double eyelid surgery?
It is a procedure that can create a double fold (If you don't have a double fold i.e. monolid) or that can reshape the shape of double fold if you already have one.  

What are the popular double eyelid shapes that can be created?

There are generally speaking 4 types of double eyelids that can be created surgically.four types of double eyelid

  • In-fold type of eyelid
  • On-fold type of eyelid
  • Parallel-fold type of eyelid
  • Eurasian-fold type of eyelid
  • +/- Mongolian fold
  • +/- ptosis

What are the different types of double eyelid surgeries?

There is more than one way in producing cosmetically satisfying double eyelids.

  • Non-surgical technique - Stitch Double Eyelid Plasty (aka Durable Suture Technique, non-surgical double eyelid procedure, stitch technique, buried suture technique)
  • Partial incision double eyelid surgery
  • Full incision double eyelid surgery
  • Big eye surgery (to correct droopy eyelid or levator ptosis)
  • Mongolian fold surgery (Epicanthoplasty)

What technique is right for me?

This depends entirely on your current double fold shape and what shape you would like for us to create.

We can customise the eyelid surgery so that any one of these eyelids can be reshaped to another. The most common procedure is to reshape the "mono-lid" to an "on-fold type of double eyelid", and for an "on-fold type of double eyelid" to a "parallel type of double eyelid".

The best option is for you to come in for a consultation so that we can assess your eyes and have you tell us your desired eyelid shape. Then we can discuss with you what the most appropriate technique will be to achieve best results for your desired eye shape.

Let me illustrate this with some examples:

This young nurse had a "mono-lid" that was reshaped to an "IN-fold type double eyelid".

This young nurse had a "mono-lid" that was reshaped to an "ON-fold type double eyelid".

What does a typical procedure involve?
Each procedure has its own unique techniques and procedural algorithms, but generally speaking, an Asian double eyelid surgery involves:

  • Designing - This is where the skin is marked to accurately outline the surgical plan.
  • Sedation - We regularly use twilight sedation. This is where sleeping medications are injected intravenously to help relieve anxiety and allow for a more comfortable experience. 
  • Local anaesthetic injection - Numbing medication is injected into the surgical area so that you don't feel any pain from the surgery.
  • Surgery - Surgery is performed to produce the desired cosmetic outcome.

What is the usual recovery?
This is the photo of usual recovery.

upper eyelid progress
Upper eyelid surgery progress. There are individual variations. Usually, we do ask you to take 2 weeks off work. But in some cases, the swelling lasts significantly longer - up to 3 months.

Where is the procedure performed?
This entirely depends on your personal preference.

  • If the procedure is performed under local anaesthesia, then the surgery is performed in our clinic. Our clinic has been accredited to perform surgical procedures under local anaesthesia and light sedation. We have passed the high standards of NS10010 Cosmetic Surgical Clinic accreditation to ensure that you receive the quality service that you deserve.
  • If you would like to have the procedure under general anesthesia then it will be performed in Surry Hill Day Hospital ( accredited theater, ACHS licensed for General anaesthesia, there is an extra charge for hospital fee and anaesthetist fee).
  • You do have a choice in choosing the location of the surgery. This is usually discussed at the time of clinical consultation.

What are the risks?
There are two types of risks.

1. Risk related to any surgery. These are scarring, infection, prolonged bruising, and swelling and suture granuloma.

2. Risk specific to double eyelid surgery. These include the fold height being higher or lower than expected, fold becoming undone, noticeable asymmetry, prolonged recovery. However, these risks are minor and are generally well accepted by the patients.

What is the commonest complaint following a double eyelid surgery?
1. Swelling - it takes full 3 months for the swelling to settle. Most people are happy to return to work after 2 weeks after a surgical procedure and after 1 week after a Stitch procedure.

2. Asymmetry - right eye and left eye swells differently after the surgery. For this reason, one eye will always be more swollen than the other and hence just about everyone will have asymmetry straight after the surgery. This will improve over the next few weeks.

I am worried about scarring?
An unsightly scar following a double eyelid surgery is not common. However, it is also true that all surgical incisions will leave a scar. Scars are usually hidden in the fold so it will not be visible normally but it may be visible when you close your eyes.

After some weeks, most scars do heal well. Any residual scar does appear as a natural skin fold and this can be easily disguised. Furthermore, they can be treated!

Asian Upper Eye Lift Surgery

banner upper eyelift01

Cosmetic eyelid surgery (aka double fold surgery) is the most commonly performed cosmetic surgical procedure among Asians. We regularly perform hundreds of these procedures every year.

"The Eyes are the window to your soul"  -  William Shakespeare.

There are two distinct types of Asian eyelid surgery:

  • Double eyelid surgery: Cosmetic procedure to create or to reshape the double fold (more popular in younger Asians)
  • Eye lift surgery: Cosmetic procedure to make one's eyes appear younger (more popular in more mature Asians)

This section is dedicated to the Eye lift surgery procedure- a surgery to make middle-aged Asians appear younger.

Why Eye Lift Surgery?
Sagging and droopy upper eyelid skin makes one appear older than they feel. It can be "lifted" with our 30 minutes quick procedure. You are just 30 minutes away from a younger you!

asian upper eyelid surgery full image01
Before & After Asian Upper Eyelift Surgery

What are the features of an aging upper eye?
Eyelid sagging tends to be one of the first visible features of the aging process. As you age, your eyelids stretch and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess skin, wrinkles and fat gather above and below your eyelids. In the upper eyelids, this causes:

  • Sagging eyebrows
  • Drooping & puffy upper lids
  • Fine wrinkles gathering in the upper eyelids and crow's feet area

Besides making you look older and tired, sagging skin around your eyes reduces your peripheral vision by partially obscuring the pupil which can also impair your vision.

Before & After Asian Upper Eyelift Surgery

What is an upper "eye lift"?
Cosmetic upper eyelid Surgery (upper eye lift, upper blepharoplasty) can be both a functional and cosmetic surgical procedure intended to reshape the upper eyelid by the removal, repositioning or reinforcing of the excess skin as well as muscles, fat, and tendons.

Before & After Asian Upper Eyelift Surgery

What does a standard upper eye lift procedure involve?

Source: Channel 10 - The Project TV. Describing the usual double eyelid surgery cases.

What is the procedure?
Generally speaking, a standard upper eye lift surgery involves these steps in sequence:

  • Designing - This is where the skin markings are drawn on you before the surgery in accordance with the desired surgical outcome.
  • Sedation - We regularly use twilight sedations to help you to relieve anxiety and improve your comfort (similar to sleeping medication).
  • Local anaesthetic injection - Numbing medication is injected into the surgical area so that you don't feel any pain.
  • Upper eye lift Surgery - Surgery (30 minutes) is performed to produce the desired cosmetic outcome and frequently involves a combination of removing excess skin, tightening the loose muscle and removing excess bulging fat and suturing.
  • Recovery & Discharge - You are sent home on the same day about 30 minutes after the surgery with strict discharge instructions.
  • Suture removal after 1 week.
  • Back to work in 1-2 weeks.
  • 6 weeks for the swelling to completely settle.

Before & After Asian Upper Eyelift Surgery

How long does a procedure take?

  • Standard upper eye lift - 30 minutes. Price is $2500 + GST. All inclusive.
  • Droopy eye correction - 60 minutes.
  • Revision surgery - Depends on the nature of the corrective procedure required.

  • Before - Before surgery photo
  • Design - Markings of surgical plan
  • After 1 day - Photo was taken one day after the upper eye lift surgery. There will be noticeable swelling and bruising.
  • Afer 1 week - Photo was taken one week after the upper eye lift surgery. You will be able to see the tiny stitches still in the wound. At 1 week after the surgery, the stitches are removed. There will still be some swelling but minimal bruising. These can usually be covered up with makeup.
  • Most clients who work from home can continue to work straight after the surgery. But most would take 1-2 weeks off work to recover.

Where is the procedure performed?
This entirely depends on your personal preference.

  • If the procedure is performed under local anaesthesia, then the surgery is performed in our clinic. Our clinic has been accredited to perform surgical procedures under local anaesthesia and light sedation. We have passed the high standards of NS10010 Cosmetic Surgical Clinic accreditation to ensure that you receive the quality service that you deserve.

Is there medicare rebate?
Medicare does not cover cosmetic procedures, especially in the case of double eyelid surgery.

But there is a Medicare rebate if your upper eyelid skin sags so much that it is pushing down on the eyelashes and impairs vision. Medicare rebate is approximately $400. Medicare item number is 45560. At the time of the consultation, you will be told as to whether you are eligible for medicare rebate.

Asian Lower Eyelid Eyelift Surgery

Middle aged Asians just want to stay younger !

“You can be gorgeous at thirty, charmimg at forty, and irresistible for the rest of your life.”― Coco Chanel

Why Lower Eye Lift Surgery?

Lower eyebags and wrinkles makes one look much older than they feel inside. Lower eyelift surgery is a powerful anti-aging surgery.

Before & After Lower Eyelift Surgery (Lower blepharoplasty)

What are the aging features of the lower eye ?
Eyelid sagging tends to be one of the first visible features of the aging process. As you age, your eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess skin, wrinkles and fat gather above and below your eyelids. In the lower eyelid, this causes:

  • Excess skin droops and produce wrinkles and folds
  • Lower eye bags
  • Wrinkles in the lower eyelid skin

Before & After Lower Eyelift Surgery (Lower blepharoplasty)

What is an lower "eye lift" ?
Lower eye lift (Transcutaneous Lower Blepharoplasty) can be both a functional and cosmetic surgical procedure intended to reshape the lower eyelid by the removal, repositioning or reinforcing the excessive and loose lower eyelid soft tissue structures. It typically involves skin incision below the lower lid eyelashes, removing excess skin, tightening the loose muscles and removing the bulging fat.

Before & After Lower Eyelift Surgery (Lower blepharoplasty)

What is special about our technique?
1. Manipulation of fat. Instead of cutting and removing the fat, we moblise the fat to fill the dark circle (tear trough deformity). This technique is called Fat transposition procedure.

fat transposition

2. Fat contouring. We use the laser to contour the fat. It tend to produce better and more precise contouring of the lower eyelid bulge and reduce the chance of removing too much fat.

3. we use the laser to tighten the lower eyelid skin during the surgery. This tend to produce a more tightening of fine wrinkles.

4. we routinely elevate and "bolt" the lower eyelid muscle to the bone to produce that additional lifting.

What does a standard lower eye lift procedure involve?
Generally speaking a standard lower eye lift surgery involves these following steps in sequence:

  • Designing - This is where the surgical plan is drawn on the lower eyelid skin before the surgery in accordance to the desired surgical outcome.
  • Sedation - We regularly use twilight sedations to help you relieve anxiety and feel more comfortable during the procedure.
  • Local anaesthetic injection - Numbing medication is injected into the surgical area so that you dont feel any pain.
  • Skin incision is made very close to the lower eyelashes so that when healed it can be well concealed.
  • Fat is tranposed to fill the dark circles and the remaining fat is then lasered to stop bulging.
  • Muscle is elevated and tightened to a youthful position.
  • Recovery. After the surgery we ensure that you are fully awake before sending you home.
  • Discharge. You are sent home on the same day about 30 minutes after the surgery with strict discharge instructions.
  • Suture removal after 1 week.
  • Back to work in 2-3 weeks.

Asian Nose Surgery

Why Asian nose surgery (rhinoplasty)?

In an Asian face, no feature commands more attention than the nose. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that as the centrepiece of the face, the nose has huge implications for attractiveness. Cosmetic Rhinoplasty – commonly referred to as a ‘nose job’ is a procedure that enhances the appearance of the nose.

This before and after photo following Asian nose surgery should explain why nose surgery is popular in Asians.asian nose surgery

In recent decades, rhinoplasty has become the defining procedure in plastic and cosmetic surgery. According to statistics compiled by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 389,015 rhinoplasties were done in that country in 2000, including 150,185 on men. The trend is reflected around the world and today rhinoplasty is consistently among the top five procedures performed in Asia and beyond. And we also see this trend in our clinic.

Why is cosmetic rhinoplasty popular in Asians?
The reason why rhinoplasty is so popular is because very few people have very nice noses. In Caucasians we try to make the nose smaller which is in contrast to Asians who want to augment their nose. Asian noses tend to have a flattish bridge, a bulbous tip and wide, flared nostrils. So the ideal nose for Asians are the type you see on many Korean movie stars – high and thin, with a sharply projecting tip and petite nostrils.

Does Asian Rhinoplasty make asian nose look like caucasian nose?
"Most if not all of my clients DO NOT want a western nose. On the contrary, they are in favour of making their nose higher, sharper and more defined in order to approach the ideal of the Asian nose !" It is important to understand that the Asian Rhinoplasty often brings the faces of his Asian patients closer to the Eastern ideal.

How is it achieved?
To achieve the ideals of different individuals, we draw upon a range of various procedures. These procedures, when taken together, comprise of a ‘toolbox’ of nose reshaping techniques that today’s cosmetic surgeons have at their disposal. Combined with a wealth of fillers, implant designs and other materials, today’s surgeons can use these various procedures to offer a completely individualised approach to each and every nose.

1. Filler Rhinoplasty (Nose Filler Injection)

This is a simple method of injecting an approved dermal filler into the nose to create the desired nose shape and profile. It is popular as it is cheap, quick and easy. Injection rhinoplasty also gives the patient the option to safely "test-drive" an augmented nose before opting for a permanent augmentation. This option, combined with the short operation time and nearly non-existent downtime, makes injection rhinoplasty very popular in our clinic. <Click here to read more>

2. Traditional Asian Rhinoplasty using silicone/goretex implant
Traditionally, Asian augmentation rhinoplasty was usually a question of a 15 to 20 minute job in which you would make a slit in the nostril and push a pre-cut implant into the nose. There is a limitation as to the final shape you can create using this technique and to overcome its limitations a composite Asian augmentation rhinoplasty was introduced.

3. Composite Asian Rhinoplasty using implant and cartilage.

Whenever an implant is placed beneath the skin at any point in the body, it will exert pressure on the skin above it. In another words, the skin above the implant will be subject to a significant increase in pressure from below. In the worst cases, this additional pressure from the synthetic material of the implant can result in a condition known as extrusion - essentially the eruption of the implant through the tip of the nose. This complication can be prevented with composite Asian rhinoplasty.

The composite rhinoplasty is a more sophisticated and refined way of performing Asian augmentation rhinoplasty. Implant is used to produce the nose dorsum and bridge and the cartilage (from the ear) is used to build the tip. Since the skin "recognises" this cartilage tip as part of the patient's own body, the chances of extrusion are far less likely, and as the tip is built using your own cartilage it also looks more natural.

I am not sure what type of nose shape i like?
This is not an uncommon question. Often, patients don't understand exactly what nose enhancement they wish. For this reason we suggest two things:

1. We use a computer graphic to plot various scenarios based on your own photo, and this will adjust various aspects of your nose to show you a realistic post operative expectations.

2. Try creating that perfect nose with filler injection first (if you dont like it, it is temporary but it can also easily be dissolved)

How long does it take?
This varies depending on what procedure is necessary to create the desired outcome.

» Filler nose injection - 10 minutes
» Implant only rhinoplasty - 45 minutes
» Composite rhinoplasty using ear cartilage to build the tip - 1.5-2 hours
» Revision surgery - longer

Case Studies

asian nose surgery rhinoplasty 02
This is a typical Asian male nose with a flat dorsum, under projected tip and flat looking nose. Composite rhinoplasty was performed with the taller tip being built by using cartilage from the ear. Advantages of using your own cartilage to build the tip is that it looks and feels natural, and there is little concern about potential long term complications related to foreign body materials such as silicone implant in the nose tip.

asian nose surgery rhinoplasty 04
This is a common case of a patient presenting with a nose enhancement request. Dorsum of the nose is low and this produces a face that appears rather flat and unbalanced as the nose appears short. Dorsum augmentation using silicone implant produces a result that is beautiful. It is beautiful because: 1. It is a simple procedure that can be performed under local anaesthesia and twilight sedations 2. It is a quick procedure that takes 30-40 minutes 3. It has a low downtime – within one week and swelling and bruising is minimal 4. Permanent outcome is achieved 5. Scar less – as the incision is made internally inside the nostril, so there is no external scar.

Choosing to enhance your appearance with cosmetic surgery is a big decision, and if you choose the right doctor and the right practice, it can be one you'll be very glad you made. We specialise in Asian Cosmetic Surgery. For more information, please fill in the enquirie below or contact us.

Lower Eye Bag Correction Surgery

banner eyebags

Lower Eye Bag Removal Surgery is a popular cosmetic surgical procedure for younger to middle aged Asians.

"The Eyes are the window to your soul"  -  William Shakespeare.

Why Eye Bag Correction Surgery?

Lower eye bags are especially troubling for younger people because it makes them feel and look old. 

lower eye bag surgery01
Before & After Lower Eyebag Removal Surgery (Transconjunctival blepharoplasty)

What is an Eye Bag?
An eye bag in younger Asians is due to the protruding fat in the lower eyelid.

What is Eye Bag Correction Surgery?
The principle is very simple. “Using a minimally invasive procedure, within 5 minutes, we precisely remove the lower eye bags and this makes you look younger”.

lower eye bag surgery03
Before & After Lower Eyebag Removal Surgery (Transconjunctival blepharoplasty)

What is the procedure?
Generally speaking, a standard lower eye bag correction surgery involves these steps in sequence:

  • Twilight sedation - We will be giving you sleeping medications. It will not knock you out. But it is intended to make you feel like you have had 2-3 beers. Comfortable and relaxed! This is important because you will need to be conscious so that we can ask you to open your eyes at the end of the surgery to CHECK that all is done well. Under general anesthesia, this is often impossible.
  • Local anesthetic injected into the eyelids.
  • A small incision is made inside the lower eyelid (for this reason there is no scar).
  • Lower eye bag fat literally “pops out”.
  • Eyebags are melted using the laser.
  • Back to work in 1-2 weeks.

Before & After Lower Eyebag Removal Surgery (Transconjunctival blepharoplasty)

How long does a procedure take?

What is a typical progress?
This photo describes a typical progress after lower eye bag correction surgery.

  • Before - Before surgery photo
  • Design - Markings of surgical plan
  • After 1 day - Photo was taken one day after the upper eye lift surgery. There will be noticeable swelling and bruise.
  • Afer 1 week - Photo was taken one week after the upper eye lift surgery. You can see the tiny stitches still in the wound. At 1 week after the surgery, the stitches are removed. There will still be some swelling but minimal bruising. This can usually be covered up with makeup.

Where is the procedure performed?
This entirely depends on your personal preference.

  • If the procedure is performed under local anesthesia, then the surgery is performed in our clinic. Our clinic has been accredited to perform surgical procedures under local anesthesia and light sedation. We have passed the high standards of NS10010 Cosmetic Surgical Clinic accreditation to ensure that you receive the quality service that you deserve.

Alar Base Reduction Surgery

Case story of Alar Base Reduction Surgery

Why Alar base reduction surgery?

Asian like to have a narrow and a slim nose. Unfortunately, many Asians have a wide nostril. This makes nose appear wide and flat. This is considered to be unattractive and hence alar base reduction is a popular procedure.

Alar base reduction surgery is a minor surgical procedure to reduce the width of the nostrils. It is commonly used in facial plastic surgery to reduce the size of large, wide or flared nostrils or nostrils. Our technique is called stitch technique because we rely on a special sutures to narrow the nostril.This effectively change nasal appearance and refine a nose to create a nose that is slimmer and is in better facial harmony.

Advantage of our technique is that:

  • it is a minor procedure (stitch alar base reduction),
  • it is minimally invasive (can be performed under local anaesthesia),
  • it is quick and simple (takes around 30 minutes),
  • there is a minimal downtime (after one week sutures are removed and you can apply make up).

Watch how simple "stitch" alar base reduction is!!

Several sutures are inserted to hold the skin down to the firm tarsal plate - this creates the crease.

What are the various types of Asian eyelid Surgery?

There are a number of eyelid surgeries that are popular in Asians (Asian eyelid surgery). These are:

  • Lateral canthoplasty - lengthen the outer corner of the eye.
  • Eye lift surgery - for older patients who needs loose skin to be removed. Caucasians call this procedure an "upper blepharoplasty".

What shape of double eyelid do you desire?

There are a number of double eyelid shapes you can choose from. This is fundamentally the most important question because I will be guided by your specific instruction. We have found over the years that more specific the instruction, more satisfied the patients are after the surgery. Simply because they know what they want, I know what you want, and we work towards the same goal. when that is satisfied, we have fantastic relationship and a happy patient.

Four types of double eyelid shape?

Generally speaking, there are 4 types of eyelid shapes you can choose from (diagram below). We can create any one of these 4 for you. It is purely a matter of personal preference.

Why Asian Eyelid Surgery (double eyelid surgery)?
Asians' eyes are often described as being small and "slit-like" and this causes an Asian eye to appear:

  • Small
  • Indistinct
  • Masculine
  • Unattractive 

The presence of double eyelids can make the Asian eye appear larger, more feminine and ultimately, more attractive.

These are the reasons why Asian Eyelid Surgery (aka double eyelid surgery) is popular among Asians.

asian double eyelid surgery 10

What is Asian Double eyelid surgery?
It is a procedure that can create a double fold (If you don't have a double fold i.e. monolid) or that can reshape the shape of double fold if you already have one.  

What are the popular double eyelid shapes that can be created?

There are generally speaking 4 types of double eyelids that can be created surgically.four types of double eyelid

  • In-fold type of eyelid
  • On-fold type of eyelid
  • Parallel-fold type of eyelid
  • Eurasian-fold type of eyelid
  • +/- Mongolian fold
  • +/- ptosis

What are the different types of double eyelid surgeries?

There is more than one way in producing cosmetically satisfying double eyelids.

  • Non-surgical technique - Stitch Double Eyelid Plasty (aka Durable Suture Technique, non-surgical double eyelid procedure, stitch technique, buried suture technique)
  • Partial incision double eyelid surgery
  • Full incision double eyelid surgery
  • Big eye surgery (to correct droopy eyelid or levator ptosis)
  • Mongolian fold surgery (Epicanthoplasty)

What technique is right for me?

This depends entirely on your current double fold shape and what shape you would like for us to create.

We can customise the eyelid surgery so that any one of these eyelids can be reshaped to another. The most common procedure is to reshape the "mono-lid" to an "on-fold type of double eyelid", and for an "on-fold type of double eyelid" to a "parallel type of double eyelid".

The best option is for you to come in for a consultation so that we can assess your eyes and have you tell us your desired eyelid shape. Then we can discuss with you what the most appropriate technique will be to achieve best results for your desired eye shape.

Let me illustrate this with some examples:

This young nurse had a "mono-lid" that was reshaped to an "IN-fold type double eyelid".

asian double eyelid surgery 22

This young nurse had a "mono-lid" that was reshaped to an "ON-fold type double eyelid".

This young nurse had an "In-fold" that was reshaped to a "PARALLEL-fold type double eyelid".

What does a typical procedure involve?
Each procedure has its own unique techniques and procedural algorithms, but generally speaking, an Asian double eyelid surgery involves:

  • Designing - This is where the skin is marked to accurately outline the surgical plan.
  • Sedation - We regularly use twilight sedation. This is where sleeping medications are injected intravenously to help relieve anxiety and allow for a more comfortable experience. 
  • Local anaesthetic injection - Numbing medication is injected into the surgical area so that you don't feel any pain from the surgery.
  • Surgery - Surgery is performed to produce the desired cosmetic outcome.

What is the usual recovery?
This is the photo of usual recovery.

upper eyelid progress
Upper eyelid surgery progress. There are individual variations. Usually, we do ask you to take 2 weeks off work. But in some cases, the swelling lasts significantly longer - up to 3 months.

Where is the procedure performed?
This entirely depends on your personal preference.

  • If the procedure is performed under local anaesthesia, then the surgery is performed in our clinic. Our clinic has been accredited to perform surgical procedures under local anaesthesia and light sedation. We have passed the high standards of NS10010 Cosmetic Surgical Clinic accreditation to ensure that you receive the quality service that you deserve.
  • If you would like to have the procedure under general anesthesia then it will be performed in Surry Hill Day Hospital ( accredited theater, ACHS licensed for General anaesthesia, there is an extra charge for hospital fee and anaesthetist fee).
  • You do have a choice in choosing the location of the surgery. This is usually discussed at the time of clinical consultation.

What are the risks?
There are two types of risks.

1. Risk related to any surgery. These are scarring, infection, prolonged bruising, and swelling and suture granuloma.

2. Risk specific to double eyelid surgery. These include the fold height being higher or lower than expected, fold becoming undone, noticeable asymmetry, prolonged recovery. However, these risks are minor and are generally well accepted by the patients.

What is the commonest complaint following a double eyelid surgery?
1. Swelling - it takes full 3 months for the swelling to settle. Most people are happy to return to work after 2 weeks after a surgical procedure and after 1 week after a Stitch procedure.

2. Asymmetry - right eye and left eye swells differently after the surgery. For this reason, one eye will always be more swollen than the other and hence just about everyone will have asymmetry straight after the surgery. This will improve over the next few weeks.

I am worried about scarring?
An unsightly scar following a double eyelid surgery is not common. However, it is also true that all surgical incisions will leave a scar. Scars are usually hidden in the fold so it will not be visible normally but it may be visible when you close your eyes.

upper bleph scar
After some weeks, most scars do heal well. Any residual scar does appear as a natural skin fold and this can be easily disguised. Furthermore, they can be treated!

Face Lift Surgery

Middle aged Asians just want to stay younger !

“You can be gorgeous at thirty, charmimg at forty, and irresistible for the rest of your life.”― Coco Chanel

Why Surgical Face & Neck Lift?

Surgical face and neck lift is a powerful anti-aging procedure. There is no other cosmetic procedure that can create such rejuvenation. For this reason, it is a popular surgical procedure.

face lift surgery01
Before & After our Face & Neck Lift Surgery 

What is Face Lift Surgery?
Soft tissues of the facial skin sags with the aging process and this produces numerous features that can make one appear older than they feel.

• General sagging skin and wrinkles.
• Deepening nasolabial folds.
• Deepening marionette lines.
• Loss of jawline and increasing jowling.
• Skin gathering as a double chin.
• Looseness of neck skin and wrinkles.

Face & Neck lifting can make you appear younger by restoring the soft tissue back to the youthful position.

face lift surgery02
Before & After our Face & Neck Lift Surgery 

What does a standard face & neck lift surgery involve?
Generally speaking a standard face lift surgery involves:

  • Designing - This is where the skin markings are drawn on you before the surgery in accordance to the desired surgical outcome.
  • Local anaesthetic injection - Numbing medication is injected into the surgical area so that you dont feel any pain.
  • Face & Neck lift surgery Surgery (1.5-2.5 hours) is performed to produce the desired cosmetic outcome and frequently involves removing excess skin, tightening the loose SMAS muscle and the finishing off with suturing.
  • Recovery - After the surgery we ensure that you are fully awake before sending you home.
  • Discharge - You are sent home on the same day about 30 minutes after the surgery with strict discharge instructions.
  • Suture removal after 1-2 week.
  • Back to work in 2-3 weeks.

face lift surgery03
Before & After our Face & Neck Lift Surgery 

What is special about our Face & Neck Lift surgery?
There are a lot of clinics offering face lift procedures but there are only a few clinic that produces a good face and neck lift.

We are getting fantastic face lifting results because we have mastered the art of tightening the muscles (SMAS/Platysma). 

  • We use a modified deep plane face lift surgical technique - called Pre Masseteric Space Approach to lift the SMAS
  • We use a modified Fogli's technique of lifting Platysma.

These techniques in combination produce a tight "internal corsett" and lifting. The end result is a powerful face and neck lift.
