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

Dr. Mendelson was a reassured calm and professional surgeon. It was ​obvious from the very first consultation that he was very well practised in eyelid surgery. At all times I felt reassured that he was going to come up with the best result. I consider him to be a true professional with an excellent bedside manner.

Mr Bryan Mendelson and his team of dedicated, caring and professional staff make the facelift experience what it is. An exciting time of transformation and adventure. It is a big undertaking with major healing, however in the hands of this team you will feel supported throughout the process. There is ample time spent with the team and the details pre op notes prepare you for the journey ahead, mentally and physically. Mr Mendelson is a kind and caring doctor and his surgery is second to none. If you are looking for the best surgeon to do your work, look no further. This man is one of the true masters in surgery.

I Got Back 10 Years – Melbourne, AU

An absolutely amazing surgeon When I decided it was time for facial plastic surgery, it was the biggest decision of my life. I was scared and put a lot of effort into finding the best facial plastic surgeon in Australia. From my first meeting through to the one year follow-up with Dr Bryan Mendelson and his amazing team, I felt I was in the best possible hands. I had extensive facial work done which wasn’t easy but the difference it made was absolutely incredible. Dr Mendelson is the most skillful, approachable and uniquely talented surgeon. From the front desk to the follow-up my experience was one of being REALLY impressed. He was professional and caring and I can never thank him and his team enough for giving me my youthful looks back, it has changed my life forever.” I highly recommend him. Perla

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

It was clear from our first consultation that Dr Mendelson seeks to achieve the best outcome for the patient. He is interested in the whole person - "tell me about your self" - not just the procedure you want. Dr Mendelson's reputation as a skilled surgeon is deserved ( the incisions around the front part of my ears - the visible signs of surgery - are beautifully healed, i.e., nearly invisible already, at 3 weeks) and his concern with careful healing only adds to my positive view of him and his work.

Facelift, Hydroxyapatite,eyelids - Toorak, AU

Dr Bryan Mendelson specializes in aesthetic facial surgery. It is worth reading his book "In Your Face: The Hidden History of Plastic Surgery and Why Looks Matter" to get an understanding of his genuine commitment to his profession and his understanding of facial surgery and of people. I found Dr Mendelson affable and easy to talk to. He understood my concerns about ageing and explained to me the procedures that could be done to refresh my face. His eye for detail impressed me. He also acknowledged the fact that I didn't want to be "overdone". The techniques that Dr Mendelson uses such as the Tarsal Fixation method for eyelids or the use of Coral Hydroxyapatite for facial enhancement create a very natural look. This was a very important factor for me when making my decision. The Centre for Facial Plastic Surgery operates like a well-oiled machine but with a very human centre. Great support is given both pre op and post surgery by all staff members. The follow-up is thorough with many post op appointments. There is a sense that Dr Mendelson takes such pride in his work that he will refuse to let you leave his care until he is 100% happy with the result.

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. Due to the unfortunate family eye hooding I inherited I looked in the mirror one day and noticed how sad, tired and old I looked as a woman in her 20s. I'd always had down turned eyes and avoided wearing eye makeup to point out he obvious but this moment made me realise I needed to do something more. I was determined that , if I was going to outlay money and time for recovery that I was going to ensure the best possible result. At the same time I was terrified of looking like I had work done and also if the many scary pulled and over exaggerated featured faces I have seen on TV who I did not want to look like. I also was aware this can be an industry of hype and marketing. I can assure you that every single thing I wanted I found in dr Mendelson. I cannot speak highly enough about his technical ability, sincerity, integrity, aesthetic eye and trustworthiness. I am medical and needle phobic and was completely at ease going into theatre with a my face in the hands of a master and a team of people that I can only describe as a second family. If you want a natural, classically beautiful result I would recommend dr Mendelson and his team. Not a day goes by where I'm not grateful for his work. I now enjoy wearing eye makeup, in fact I don't really need that much makeup anymore and I frequently get comments about people being surprised that I am much older than I look.

Brow Lift, Upper Lid Lift, Mid Cheek Lift, Lipofil Fat Transfer - Melbourne, AU

Dr Bryan Mendelson is truly a world leader in the field of facial cosmetic surgery. All my questions were answered prior to having the surgery (and I had A LOT OF QUESTIONS). His consultations are very detailed and I had every confidence in his skills and abilities going in to my surgery. Not only is Dr Mendelson technically brilliant (my scars are fading away to nothing, I have an even result on each side of my face etc.) but he also has a wonderful manner. The postoperative care is first class; the highest quality.

Too Young for Hooded Eyes - Toorak, AU

I cant say enough positive things about Dr. Bryan Mendelson and his team. Bryan is truly a caring, inspirational and delightful man. It was clear that Bryan's focus was on achieving the best result for me and not on $$$ which I found incredibly refreshing and it gave me reassurance and confidence in the final result. I found his staff to be super lovely and caring. The after care was meticulous and extended far past the date of the surgery. I received complimentary LED healing treatments every time I came into the surgery, I found this so relaxing and beneficial to the healing process. Appointments were regular and the attention and encouragement I received was great, I always felt happy and uplifted after leaving the clinic even on those difficult days. I received 3 complimentary physio therapy treatments for healing and swelling by Joan Bortolotto. This therapy involved an ultrasound to break down the swelling in my face, I found this so effective I paid for extra treatments. I seriously cant recommend Dr. Bryan Mendelson's practice enough! its been the best decision I have made!

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...
