5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

This Surgeon is an Artist with a Scalpel. A Much Higher Self Image Rejuvenated - Toorak, AU

For as long as I can remember I had hooded eyelids, even looking back at photographs of me in my 30s. I never liked the look of them. I looked older than I was and everyone continually kept telling me how tired I looked. I wanted this solved. Well after several years of contemplating having the upper eyelid surgery, I took the plunge this year and had the procedure done. After researching...

Facelift at 50. Australia, AU

15 years ago at age 35 I had upper and lower blephs done with Mr Mendelson for premature lid bags and was thrilled with the result. I had always thought back then I would not have a full face lift later in life as it seemed extreme, but I grew older, laxity set in and new techniques in facelift procedures convinced me that it was something I felt was worthwhile for me. I should add that I...

I Got Back 10 Years – Melbourne, AU

I was 55 and looked tired and make-up wasn’t covering my bags and wrinkles. I did extensive research for the best facial plastic surgeon in Australia and all main roads led to Dr Bryan Mendelson. I chose a face lift with the lot and I got so much more - 10 years off my looks and a bucket of confidence. Now 8 years later, I recon I look as good as I did after the surgery and feel great. To t...

60 Yr, Want my Jaw Line Back - Melbourne, AU

I've been considering a SMAS facelift and researching the procedure, and surgeons here in Melbourne Australia, for over a year.

Facelift, Hydroxyapatite,eyelids - Toorak, AU

My problem was simply an ageing face. I looked tired all the time. Approaching 60 I found my face was not reflecting the health and vitality that I still felt. I was starting to feel invisible. The decision to have surgery was not taken lightly and I researched the options carefully. 12 months ago I had a facelift with hydroxyapatite and eyelid surgery. I have been delighted with my results....

26 Yo Premature Ageing and Tired Looking. Melbourne, AU

Hydroxyapatite cheeks, bilateral bleph and canthopexy One of the greatest decisions I have made in my life.

The importance of Precision in blepharoplasty. (Upper eyelid surgery)

People of discerning taste know that the eyes are the one area of the face that require the most attention to detail with make up. Correctly made up eyes not only enhance the look of the eyes but enhance the attractiveness of the face overall. It is similar with eyelid surgery. A quality surgical result is like wearing make up in the sense that well done eyelid surgery has the benefit of this enhanced look. It's as if wearing eye make up all the time, purely from the surgery alone.It...
