Oculoplastics is plastic surgery performed on the orbit and surrounding tissues, the lids, tear ducts and other areas of the face in close proximity. In some cases this would include the reconstruction of the orbit and the surrounding tissues.
Dr McLean is skilled in the assessment of such problems and performs a number of corrective surgeries right here in Bundaberg.
- Blepharoplasties – for droopy lids
- Ectropion repair – for outward turned lids
- Entropion repair- for inward turned lids
Where possible these procedures may be performed in Bundaberg Eye Clinic’s minor operations theatre. This saves the patient the costs of Hospital admission and streamlines treatment.

Botox® is a powerful neurotoxin that has long been used for its therapeutic and cosmetic benefits. Since 1985, a scientific protocol of injection sites and dosage has been empirically determined for treatment of several conditions.
It may be used in:

The effects of Botox® last around 3-5 months on average before treatment is generally required again.
