In 2008 I investigated facial surgery. In 2014 I finally took steps to rectify issues I had; I regret not doing it sooner as it is clearly age preventative from the moment it's performed, however, I have absolutely no regrets in doing it. I required a full month off from work to recover from this surgery. I had a Lower Face Lift and Eyelid Surgery.

I had with quite lax neck skin that had visible slight vertical crease lines in it, and I had a noticeable pouch of fat under my chin. I would notice my lax neck skin more so when I went to the hairdresser as the cape was placed snuggly around my neck, it would accentuate my issue more and I would cringe looking at it. I thought to myself, "I do not want a turkey neck by the time I'm 60, nor a double chin". Further, I had not worn eyeshadow for so many years as my eyelid was almost completely covered by lax eye skin. Having had eyelid surgery, I now wear a fantastic gold eyeshadow almost daily, just loving my eyes again.

Although not a heavy smoker, I stopped smoking prior to my surgery. I chose not to drink alcohol for at least one month post-surgery and continued to not smoke. My initial healing has been slightly above average and continues to improve.

I am so much more confident in myself; have overcome my issues and I love my face. I am so glad I chose “Dr Magnificent”, as I tend to call him, and his wonderful team. Thank you to you all!
Congrats on quitting smoking and on your good results. Would love to see your photos!

Dr Bryan Mendelson, "Dr Magnificent" as I call him, is a truly remarkable man. I was comfortable with Dr Mendelson the moment I met him. I watched him as he studied my face, and his comments to me as he did so were delivered in a caring, re-assuring manner. He made me feel very positive about the outcome of the surgery I was undertaking, being able to show me what he intended to do and discussing the surgery with me as I held a hand mirror. I wasn’t apprehensive or anxious anymore, I was now excited. When Dr Magnificent left his consulting room, momentarily, I scanned his room for his credentials and anything I could see at a glance that could tell me about the man I am allowing to alter my face. I was so impressed by what I saw in that room. Dr Mendelson has wonderful staff on-board who display a high level of professionalism, with the same caring nature as he. I felt so enthusiastic each time I knew I had an upcoming appointment with Dr Mendelson or his clinic staff, both before and after surgery. I have gained so much self-confidence from my experience. As I write, I am at the four month post-surgery stage and every day that passes there is marked improvement; it’s great to watch.
