Case Study Eyelid Surgery – Australia Surgeon Dr Benjamin Burt FRANZCO/FACS

Indication for Upper Blepharoplasty Surgery:

  • Amea May chose upper eyelid reduction surgery to REDUCE genetically heavy eyelids that caused irritation and skin infections.
  • Heavy lids also lead her to appear tired and older than she actually was (she was in her twenties).
  • Her ptotic eyelid skin led to heightened allergic responses when wearing certain eye area makeup, due to eyelid laxity/chaffing.
  • Patient was in good health and followed Surgeon’s recommendations including Post-Op Rapid Recovery Package protocols.

The Back Story:

In Melbourne in 2016, one of Australia’s top Beauty Bloggers (a social media influencer) wanted eyelid surgery – but when she went to investigate the healing times, she found too little information on the web about RECOVERY from Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) and what was actually involved in the procedure. So she contacted us to find out more. She ended up choosing to have surgery with our Team’s leading Oculoplastic Surgeon, Dr Benjamin Burt, and she chronicled her experiences in her Youtube Diary.

Here are her YouTube channel VIDEO links in case you’re investigating Eyelid Surgery healing and recovery times.

My Eyelid Surgery Consultation | Cosmetic Blepharoplasty Diary – Part 1

  • The first step to having cosmetic surgery – of any type – is a consultation with a Surgeon.
  • She chose Dr Benjamin Burt based on a personal recommendation from a friend as well as business colleague.
  • She has since become an educator/Ambassador for Coco Ruby Skin & Anti-Ageing and for patient education about consultations.Click on each video link, below, to review these aspects of Amea May’s Blepharoplasty surgery in her informative educational VIDEOS about her cosmetic surgery journey.


  • Eyelid lift surgery is not relegated to individuals over forty, whose eyelid skin is sagging or impeding vision.
  • People in their 20s and 30s also explore their Eyelid Lift Surgery options (officially known as a Blepharoplasty) because they inherited puffy eyelids or sagging, drooping eyelid skin.
  • Such was the case of a young Social Media influencer, Amea May, who created a patient education series on her experiences with having Eyelid Surgery (Eyelid lift/Blepharoplasty) with Dr Benjamin Burt, FRANZO/FACS, a top eyelid surgery specialist for rejuvenation of the eyes and brow area.
