Eyelid and Ear Surgery

At Bisson Plastic Surgery we undertake a limited range of cosmetic face surgery procedures, specifically upper and lower eyelid surgery and ear surgery.

At your initial consultation we take the time to understand your requirements, explain to you the surgical procedure (including post-op recovery information), and estimate costs. This initial consultation takes approx 30 – 45 min. All cosmetic face surgery procedures are undertaken at Bowen Hospital, Wellington.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Eyelid surgery helps to refresh and present a more youthful appearance around the region of the eyes. It achieves this through removing any excess skin and fat or redistributing the fat to smooth and rejuvenate the appearance.

Key Details:
• Usually a day case procedure.
• For an upper eyelid procedure a local anaesthetic can be used.
• For a lower eyelid procedure a general anaesthetic is used.
• For both a lower and upper eyelid procedure a general anaesthetic is used.
• Sutures will be removed in 5 -7 days.

Correcting Prominent Ears | Ear Pinning (Otoplasty)

Ear surgery is undertaken to correct prominence or abnormal folds of the ears. Individuals can sometimes be self-conscious about such prominence or folds and surgery can significantly improve the appearance.

Key Details:
• A day case procedure.
• Option of using either local or general anaesthetic.
• Sutures and dressings will be removed 1 week after surgery.
• You will need to wear a headband at night for 6 weeks.
