Are you concerned about having …

  • Ageing eyelids?
  • Eye bags?
  • Drooping brows?
  • Uneven upper eyelids?

Signs of ageing around your eyes and forehead often leaves you looking older than you feel inside.

Fortunately, there are excellent surgical and non-surgical solutions to rejuvenate the appearance of ageing eyes

Surgical options, often in combination with non-surgical skin rejuvenation, include a variety of facial procedures.

These include the highly-popular eyelid lift (Blepharoplasty) procedures to rejuvenate your eyes and leave you looking fresher and younger – – or a brow lift.

Non-surgical options by our leading Rejuvenation Team include high-quality injectables and dermal volumisers (fillers) along with laser procedures & skin collagen stimulation.

Our Team can help determine whether you will benefit MOST from non-surgical treatments or from a surgical Blepharoplasty, BrowLift or Facelift procedure

If you have drooping eyelids or under eye bags and a wrinkled, sagging brow area, you may want to consider a laser or surgical Blepharoplasty procedure, and to explore additional quality Injectables treatments and Upper Brow Lift procedures.

Whether you have a surgical or a non-surgical procedure, or both, our Experts focus on getting you a natural look.  We take great care to help you avoid ending up with ‘too much filler’ or having an unnatural looking result, which can happen if you use less experienced Injectors or less-quality types of volumising products (we use only high-quality, non-diluted products for wrinkle prevention and anti-ageing plumping treatments).

We can help you understand when a surgical intervention can get you the best anti-ageing results OR whether a non-surgical approach can still get you an excellent rejuvenation result for your face and eyes


Are you considering a facial or eyelid rejuvenation procedure? What you need to know

If you’re considering an eye or facial rejuvenation procedure, you’re like many Australian women and men over forty who want to look as young as they feel on the inside.

Many people are keen to combat the signs of ageing and sun exposure (or premature ageing) from showing up on their skin and eyelid areas in the form of deepening wrinkles, laugh-lines and sagging eyelids.

But what each person needs is often very unique and depends on a number of factors, primarily environmental (sun exposure, lifestyle), genetic (heredity), and skin health — which often depends on numerous interactive factors.

So the first step is a full facial assessment.


The early signs of facial ageing can usually be seen in the area around your eyes & upper face – your “peri-orbital area”

Do you suffer from:

  • Droopy or sagging eyelids?
  • Dark circles under your eyes or unsightly eye bags?
  • Fat deposits causing puffy eyelids?
  • Loose upper eyelid skin that sags to a degree that it impairs your vision?
  • Crepe paper type lower eyelid wrinkles and other fine lines?
  • Excess skin obscuring the folds of your upper or lower eyelids?
  • An prematurely-aged appearance around your eyes?
  • Eyes that leave you looking perennially tired or sad?

Are your ageing, sagging eyelids or puffy eye bags causing you to:

  • Be told by friends that you look tired or grumpy?
  • Feel you look much older than you actually are?
  • Find it difficult to see clearly?
  • Be unable to apply eye shadow or eye makeup artistically?
  • Feel you appear far older than your partner or colleagues?

Would you like to enhance the beauty of your eyes and restore a more youthful appearance?

Our Facial Surgery & Eyelid Lift Experts offer are a variety of non-surgical & surgical procedures to treat your entire peri-orbital area.

Whether your main concerns is a sagging brow, droopy eyelids, puffy upper or lower eyelids or fine lines and wrinkles, there are a number of solutions to restore a fresher and revitalised appearance.

Different aesthetic procedures combat different signs of ageing for the face, eyes, brow and cheek areas

Today, getting a more youthful look that is naturally pleasing is both an art and a science.  Technology is ever-advancing for facial rejuvenation, so be sure you choose a Clinician or Plastic Surgeon who keeps up to date with the best practices for each procedure.

If you want to learn more, just schedule a visit to our Facial Surgery experts OR ask to visit one of our Coco Ruby Skin & Anti-Ageing Injection specialists, who can help you assess which specific procedures will get you the improvements you are looking for.

Eyelid surgery is an extremely popular facial rejuvenation procedure

Blepharoplasty surgery (eyelid lift surgery) is popular partially as it is a relatively quick-recovery procedure and partially as the eyes are such a focal point of the face. They eyes are often the first area to show the signs of ageing.

Sometimes a single rejuvenation procedure can get you the look you’re aiming for and help you combat the appearance of ageing.

Sometimes it can’t, and in these cases, the best treatment for you might be a combined eyelid lift and brow lift procedure. Alternatively, a combined eyelid lift with quality injectables & fillers — or even laser treatments — may help get you get the best results for your particular appearance concerns.

A number of factors may contribute to fatty stores around your eyelids OR laxity in the muscles around your eyes

What’s best for you in terms of a Blepharoplasty or other rejuvenation procedure depends on your presenting skin collagen, wrinkles, eyelid & brow condition.

To determine what will work best for you, Our Plastic Surgeons & Eye Rejuvenation Experts evaluate your skin and eyelid area, and offer suggestions based upon your presenting skin condition, skin laxity and collagen health.

  •  Your eye-and-brow rejuvenation plan will often depend on your degree of eyelid ptosis (droopyiness) and your brow position
  • Your team will also take into account any environmental skin damage, sun exposure, wrinkle depth & genetic ageing factors
    • Our Specialist Surgeons & Skin Rejuvenation team at Coco Ruby Skin & Anti-Ageing can also design a custom facial rejuvenation plan or recommend scientifically based skin care regimes
    • Quality skin care and mineral makeup can also enhance your appearance and help reduce premature skin-ageing caused by incorrect products or excessive sun exposure without adequate skin protection

You may want to reduce the appearance of other facial wrinkles during or after your Blepharoplasty procedure

In addition to eyelid surgery, our Team also offers the latest in non-surgical techniques for facial rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction.

Our Clinic offers the latest treatments in:

  • quality dermal volumisers, dermal fillers & lip plumping injections
  • quality anti-wrinkle injectables for combatting wrinkles and reducing lines
  • laser skin resurfacing or skin rejuvenation treatments
    • Fraxel Restore
    • DOT Therapy (CO2 Laser therapy)
    • Healite II (award-winning LED treatments)
    • CO2 DOT Therapy laser treatments
    • MonaLisa Touch treatments for post-menopausal symptoms


Peri-orbital Procedures can include both non-surgical and surgical solutions

Sometimes your eyes area just needs additional volume.

Other times, there is excess skin that can be shrunk with a laser or removed with Surgery.

But at a certain point, sometimes your best treatment option really is eyelid lift surgery – not simply having more injectables.

Upper Blepharoplasty Surgery – especially for Droopy Eyelids


  • Upper Blepharoplasty surgery can correct “droopy” eyelids and help reduce the perceived age of a person’s face.
  • Significant excess upper eyelid skin may also lead to a restriction of vision by physically blocking the eye.
  • This is called ptosis, and an upper eyelid lift resolves this issue.
  • Some patients also have excess adipose (fatty) tissue in the upper eyelid which can cause the eye to appear “puffy” or “heavy”.
  • Blepharoplasty can correct this condition by removing or reshaping a tiny area of fat inside and around the eyelid.

An Upper Blepharoplasty procedure removes fatty deposits and excess skin from the UPPER eyelid area, which can also improve vision for patients who suffer severe eyelid ptosis.

Lower Blepharoplasty – especially for Baggy Eyelids

Lower Blepharoplasty removes excess skin and fat from the LOWER lid and periorbital area under the eye.

As well as reducing your perceived age, this eye surgery can correct drooping that exposes the area of the eye (white) below the iris, and most importantly for many patients, help remedy the dark “bags” under the eye.

Asian Blepharoplasty

Some patients from Asian backgrounds may find that modifying the “eye fold” area enhances their appearance.

This form of “Asian blepharoplasty” or Double Eyelid Blepharoplasty requires intense skills and experience to provide the aesthetic outcome Asian patients desire.Outdoor portrait of a beautiful happy smiling Chinese Asian young woman or girl at beach with blond female friend out of focus in foreground

Blepharoplasty Post-Op Care & Rapid Recovery

Recovery is as unique to each patient as is their rejuvenation needs, but there are some general guidelines.

Our post-op care means we do everything possible to get you back into your normal routine.  But it is important to follow your Injector’s or your Plastic Surgeon’s instructions very carefully to ensure your safety and your best results.

For EYELID LIFT or BROW LIFT Surgery, depending on which procedures you have, you may want to take a few days off from your normal activities (approximately 2 to 7 days for a Blepharoplasty and approximately 10 to 14 days for a Brow Lift or combined procedures).
