My Surgery Consultation with Blepharoplasty Surgeon, Dr Benjamin Burt, at Cosmetic Surgery for Women and Men

Amea May is a Beauty Expert, as well as an Melbourne Eyelash Technician and popular beauty blogger. As Amea approaches the beautiful federation style Clinic in Hawthorn East, she’s “nervous they will tell me I’m too young to have surgery. But I inherited heavy eyelids that ‘fold over’ on themselves and lead to skin irritation and infections and I’ve been wanting to get my eyes done for a long time.”


Meeting with Dr Burt to discuss the Eyelid Reduction Surgery and what an Upper Blepharoplasty can accomplish.


Dr Burt explains that genetically heavy eyelids can be changed or corrected through Blepharoplasty Surgery, especially if the heavy lids lead to skin irritation or other problems.


Dr Burt showing me how the eyelid reduction will look after Surgery. He tells me it’s very important that a Surgeon who does eyelid surgery procedures is cautious NOT to take too much skin as that can’t be fixed.

Day 7 after Blepharoplasty Surgery. Eyelid Suture Removal Time – stitches coming out today.


Did it hurt to get the eyelid stitches taken out?

“I was expecting it [to be painful] or to feel like a burning sensation on removal [but it didn’t feel that way]. It just felt like a thread being pulled across my skin.”
