Facelifts – Face Surgery in Melbourne & Sydney

Facial Rejuvenation & Face Surgery by Melbourne & Sydney Leading Plastic Surgeons

  • Are you starting to worry about looking older than you feel?
  • Do you wonder what you might look like if your skin held firmer to your features, like it did when you were younger?
  • Do you miss the appearance of a sculpted jawline and clearly visible chin, without those sagging jowls or double chin?
  • Have you always wanted a stronger chin or a straighter, narrower nose?

Facial surgery, such as a facelift, eyelid lift or rhinoplasty, can help:

  • reduce many of the unwanted signs of facial ageing
  • correct feature imbalances
  • repair facial injury or revise skin scars



Whilst you can’t turn back the clock to how you looked when you were much younger, a great Plastic Surgeon CAN help you take years off of your face’s ageing appearance.

An experienced and specially trained Plastic Surgeon can also help restore a more balanced facial profile by either:

  • reshaping your nose (Rhinoplasty)
  • repairing a deviated septum
  • correcting drooping eyelids (Blepharoplasty or Canthoplasty for eyelids ptosis)
  • lifting a heavy, sagging brow (brow lift or upper face lift surgery)
  • improving your smile and mouth shape (wrinkle-reducing injectables, lip augmentation or a face lift)
  • refine your jowls, jawline and chin (facelift, neck lift, injectables/fillers or chin augmentation)
  • improve the appearance of your ears (Otoplasty or Earlobe Repair).

Whether it’s a nose job, a neck lift, a face lift or eyelid surgery – or a combination approach using surgery & injectables to restore lost facial volume – you have numerous options to help you to:

  • improve your facial appearance
  • reduce sagging, ageing facial skin
  • refine your skin and reduce sun spots, hyperpigmentation, redness or skin lesions/moles
  • tighten the skin around your lower face and jawline to reduce saggy jowls
  • remove wrinkles and puffiness around your eyelid or brow area
  • improve your facial symmetry
  • refine the shape, length or size of your nose (nose reshaping)
  • bring an out-of-proportion feature (or an injured feature) back to balance with the rest of your face

Natural and Long-lasting Facial Surgery Results

Thanks to advances in plastic surgery methods and cosmetic skin resurfacing procedures, you can get a very NATURAL looking face surgery result from our top Plastic & Cosmetic Surgeons in Melbourne and Sydney.

Our leading Facial Rejuvenation experts can help you get a rejuvenating facial result that is pleasing, well-balanced and long lasting.

They can also help you to refine your skin and reduce wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation from sun damage, with the help of our excellent Dermal Clinicians and Injection treatment specialists at Coco Ruby Skin & Anti-Ageing, available in Melbourne and in Berwick.

And if it’s your EYE area you want rejuvenated, or your eye lids and brows, you’ll want to meet with one of our upper face surgeons, such as Blepharoplasty & Brow Lift Surgeon Dr Benjamin Burt, FRANZCO FACS.


Our Surgeons bring you decades of surgical expertise in facial rejuvenation and body contouring procedures.

For facial rejuvenation, you might want to consider the options for different Facelift procedures. Perhaps an eyelid lift or injectables are all that’s required to help rejuvenate your face. Or perhaps you’ll want a more significant full-face rejuvenation effect with a Facelift, Necklift, Eyelid lift and Brow lift.

Or you might THINK an eyelid lift will get you the best results, but it’s actually a Brow Lift with skin resurfacing that might get you the most satisfying results from your Surgery.


Whichever facial surgery and skin rejuvenation procedures you are wanting, our leading Plastic Surgeons will provide you with an exceptional Surgery experience and natural-looking results.

Face Surgery or Facial & Eye Rejuvenation Procedures

Cosmetic & Plastic Facial Surgeries are intended to help rejuvenate ageing, saggy skin and delay further signs of skin ageing.  These procedures are aimed at enhancing the overall appearance of the face in a natural-looking way.

For details about specific Face Surgeries, such as Facelift or Necklift and Eyelid Rejuvenation procedures, browse the FACE menu from our Home Page.

Will everyone know you’ve had ‘something done’?

The answer is typically “NOT if it’s done well and results in a natural-looking outcome.”

  • When facial surgery is skillfully done, most people will not notice that you have had a facial enhancement procedure.
  • Some people may, however, recognise you have had a facial procedure.
  • These are mostly people who have either undergone their own surgery procedures OR who simply have a good eye for procedure-related facial changes.

Before & After an Eyelid Lift Surgery By Dr Burt

Typically, however, most people will simply notice you look a bit different — a bit better, or a lot more rested.  Often, however, they are unable to identify what, exactly, has changed, other than noticing you seem happier or more confident within yourself.

Note: Non-surgical complimentary cosmetic procedures for skin rejuvenation can be done in special skin treatment rooms in Melbourne (Hawthorn) & Berwick: these include skin rejuvenation peels, injectable treatments and dermal fillers

You can read more on Eyelid Rejuvenation (Blepharoplasty) and Combined Eyelid & Brow Rejuvenation procedures on the relevant web pages, or send an enquiry form for details.
