Dr Greg Taylor - plastic, reconstructive and cosmetic surgeon


50'ish? Feeling great, but looking tired?

We can help you look as good as you feel. We offer facelift surgery at $16,250, under local anaesthetic with sedation – by far the best method. The procedure includes a mid-face and neck lift, as well as muscle tightening (SMAS). This includes an overnight hospital stay.

Fixed prices

In the interests of providing quality surgery at fair and affordable prices we fixed our prices some years ago for most of our cosmetic surgical procedures. We always try to keep these reasonable and competitive but sometimes have to increase in line with increase in operating costs. In January 2019 we will be increasing the cost for breast augmentations to $11,500 - this price includes the post op bra and follow up checks and appointments up to a year following surgery.

We are continuing to offer facelift surgery at a fixed price of $16,250, under local anaesthetic with sedation – by far the best method.  The procedure includes a mid-face and neck lift, as well as muscle tightening (SMAS) and includes an overnight stay.

If you look good do you feel good?


DENVER — Botulinum toxin A, commonly known as Botox, has an antidepressive effect when injected between the eyebrows that continues beyond the cosmetic effects of the injection, according to the results of a new study.

The fact that the antidepressive effect continued after the wrinkles reappeared suggests that the elevated mood isn't just related to cosmetic improvements, which is "profound and unexpected," said study investigator Michelle Magid, MD, clinical associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Texas Southwestern in Austin.

EYELID LIFT ( Blepharoplasty)

Great Value Surgery

When you’re talking to someone, it’s natural for your eyes to be drawn to the other person’s eyes.  It’s the way that all people communicate, with eye contact. Tired, aging eyes make you feel less than confident in social situations.

If you have signs of looking tired or aging in your upper AND lower eyelids a “quad” blepharoplasty can be done

An eyelid lift can be done on the upper or the lower eyelids.  An upper eyelid lift mainly removes loose skin and some fat   For the lower eyelid, mostly excess fat is removed, since there tends to be more fat and not as much loose skin in that area.

Shorter Surgery with Shorter Recovery

An eyelid lift is typically done on an out-patient basis, and the recovery is fairly short.  Even with a quad blepharoplasty, the pain is moderate to minimal, and the sutures are usually removed 5days after surgery.  

If you don’t mind looking a little swollen and bruised, and you have understanding friends and work colleagues, you can be out and about within 2-3 days after your procedure.  If you work from home, you can probably talk on the phone and do computer work within 2-3 days of your surgery.  

Alone or with Other Procedures

If you just choose to rejuvenate your eyes, you will have substantial improvement of your overall appearance and should look less tired and more youthful.

If you wish, you can further enhance your facial rejuvenation by combining your eyelid lift with other procedures, including the following: Temporal brow lift / Facelift or Chin and Jaw Liposuction


In middle age our facial appearance begins to sag. The face takes on a square heavy look, the jawline and neck become scraggy and looking at our reflection reminds us of how we are ageing.

Hormones, dieting, sun, smoking, alcohol and genetics all play their part to a greater or lesser degree. 

Most women and men find these visible signs of ageing depressing, and often remark that if they could just pull “this area up". They will look better.

Fillers and Botulinum injections can help freshen the face, however, for the more advanced signs of ageing the only solution is surgery.

Dr Greg Taylor has perfected the local anaesthetic facelift.  This is a day stay procedure incorporating local anaesthetic and sedation. 

The lower facelift including the neck and jawline is a four hour procedure.  Some patients may wish to include the upper eyelid, and more advanced cases require a temporal brow lift as well.

The surgery takes place at our modern, onsite theatre suite at 122 Remuera Rd, Remuera, Auckland.

The process is straight forward.

More 30-somethings opting for cosmetic enhancements

Most people may associate cosmetic surgery with people in their late 40’s and above.

But it is usually in our mid 30’s that we begin to notice those first dreaded signs of aging.

So why wait until you are older to improve your appearance when you can act sooner to maintain a youthful look?

According to global trends, more and more 30-somethings are being proactive when it comes to looking and feeling younger.

Advances in the field of plastic surgery mean you can stop, or even reverse the signs of ageing as soon as they appear, without major invasive surgery.
