What is Laser Assisted Laser Blepharoplasty?

Excess (droopy) eyelid skin (with or without bulging fat pads) is the reason why most people consider upper or lower eyelid surgery.

It is one of the most popular and frequently performed cosmetic surgical procedure in the world.

With time, the eyelid skin becomes lax, and the underlying tissue (fat pads) may start to bulge out. Years of sun damage, genetic predisposition, chronic health issues, alcoholism and cigarette smoking often accelerate the ageing process.

Younger people with genetically inherited excess fatty tissue around the eyes (eye hooding) may also elect to have this procedure to achieve a more defined upper eyelid crease or to get rid of bulging lower lid fat pads.

In older patients, upper eyelid blepharoplasty can also improve the eyesight by providing a less obstructed field of vision caused by excess upper eyelid skin.

Depending upon the type of of procedure being performed, we use high-strength topical numbing cream, inhalation (laughing) gas, local anaesthesia as well as skin cooling device to make the procedure as tolerable as possible.


As per new AHPRA & Australian Medical Board guidelines, all cosmetic surgery patients will require a referral from a GP to be able to have a cosmetic surgery consultation.

All cosmetic patients will require a psychological assessment to rule out body dysmorphia before undergoing any cosmetic surgery.

Our Clinical Team


What are the common types of eyelid surgeries?

At Medaesthetics, we offer the following eye rejuvenation procedures:

Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty (Traditional)
Upper Eyelid Skin-Only Blepharoplasty (Tissue Sparing)
Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty (Skin-only)
Trans-Conjunctival Blepharoplasty (Lower eyelids)
Lower Eyelid CO2 Laser Skin Tightening (Resurfacing)

What is Skin-only (Tissue-sparing) Blepharoplasty?

As the name suggests, tissue-sparing Blepharoplasty is a less invasive procedure compared to the traditional Blepharoplasty. It is a minimally invasive surgery where just the excess eyelid skin is removed. Deeper structures such as eyelid muscles and fat pads are not excised.

This significantly reduces the potential risks and down-time issues assosiated with traditional blepharoplasty. Skin-only Blepharoplsty is suitable for patients who have excess eyelid skin without associated muscle hypertrophy or bulging fat pads.

At Medaesthetics, we prefer this procedures for majority of our patients.

What is Trans-Conjunctival Blepharoplasty?

For removing lower eyelid fat pads, a “trans-conjunctival” blepharoplasty is performed where the incision is made inside the lower eyelids, leaving no visible scar on the outside.

How is the procedure performed?

At Medaesthetics, Blepharoplasty is performed as a day procedure using a CO2 laser or radio-wave surgery device. Hospitalisation is not required when the procedure is performed under local anaesthesia.

The procedure can also be performed under twilight anaesthesia in an accredited day hospital if the patient prefers to be asleep during the surgery.

What is the duration of this procedure?

Blepharoplasty is a relatively quick procedure to perform. On average, it takes less than sixty minutes.

Am I going to be conscious during the procedure?

We routinely perform this procedure under local anaesthesia while the patient is fully awake. There is little to no discomfort associated with this technique once the area is fully numbed.

What is the degree of pain associated with the procedure?

Once the treatment area has been numbed, you will be unable to feel any pain. At Medaesthetics, we make every effort to ensure that every procedure we perform entails minimal pain or discomfort.

What are the risks associated with this surgery?

All surgeries carry potential risks. These include:

Post-surgical bleeding
Swelling and bruising (Temporary)
Delayed healing
Under or over-correction

What is the recovery like?

Initial recovery from upper eyelid blepharoplasty is usually between seven to ten days for most patients. Sutures are taken out on day ten. Residual swelling can take a few more weeks to fully subside in patients who are slow healers.

How much time should I take off work?

Most patients can return to office-based work within five to seven days. We recommend at least 2 weeks off work if your work involves heavy physical activity or travelling. A Medical Certificate can be organised which will not mention the name of your procedure.

Will there be a visible scar afterwards?

Eyelid skin heals quickly and exceptionally well, leaving minimal to no scarring. The area of skin excision is in the natural eyelid crease, and in most cases is virtually invisible when the patient’s eyes are open.

At Medaesthetics, we offer an extensive range of fractional CO2 lasers to help reduce any type of scarring, whether related to surgery or trauma.

What is Laser Eyelid Skin Tightening?

Ablative lasers such as Erbium Yag and CO2 have excellent tissue shrinking properties. In recent years, these lasers have become extremely popular in reducing loose and crepey skin in the lower eyelids.

At Medaesthetics, lower eyelid laser skin tightening is one of our signature cosmetic procedures. We perform hundreds of these treatments each year with excellent clinical results and very high patient satisfaction rate.

How much does it cost?

Upper Eyelid Skin-only Blepharoplasty fees start from $5,000 for both eyes. There are no hospital or anaesthetist fees applicable when the procedure is performed under local anesthetic only.
