Bryan Mendelson, Melbourne, Australia - any info??

Bryan Mendelson, Melbourne, Australia - any info??

Postby redshoes » Fri Nov 02, 2007 4:00 am

My first time posting... I am looking into a mid-face lift but I am having trouble finding any ps referrals from other Austalians - noone I know has had any work done (at least not that I know of) and I can't seem to find any Aust focused ps sites on the web. I am 35 and have a heavy lower face due to my cheeks decending - I, of course, would like to have them hitched back up to where they used to be... I have had one appt with Dr Bryan Mendelson based in Melbourne, Aust and was quite impressed but I would really love to hear from anyone who has seen his work first hand or had any face work done by him. From the little info I have come across it seems that he is regarded as a face specialist and has presented many papers at ps conferences around the world, particularly for his work on the upper cheek, lower eye junction.

Hi redshoes
I am also looking for a good eyelid surgeon in Melbourne.
I was considering Dr. Nettle from Sydney (very good ref and pictures) but I was told by another doctor that I would have to stay in Sydney for 3 weeks in cases of complications…
So now looking in Melbourne.
I’ve met Dr’s Chris Moss nurse educator .Looked through the pictures – they were ok. It is very difficult to judge by pictures.
Also had an appointment with Dr Bruce Fox. I had lipo done by him 7 years ago and very happy with the results. He sounded very good. My only concern is that he specialises in lipo and eyelid surgery is not his forte(I think). Although pre and post pictures of his work looked very natural. He operates with laser (rather then scalpel) and I am not sure if I want laser any ware near my eyes.
I’ve googled Dr Mendelson - and he does look impressive. However it can be just lots of money thrown into marketing.
Please keep me posted if you find any references.
cheers

Hi Redshoes,

I am interested in the same info.

I am considering Dr Mendelson as well, but it's such a lot of money to spend, Id like to meet someone who has been his patient too.
I dont live in Melb, so the cost is also more to stay there.

Suzy.

I’ve paid a deposit and booked a date for a MFL with dr Mendelson
But now having my doubts all over again. I am around 40 and look young but always tired and I was thinking about lower eyelid tightening. When the doctor explained MFL procedure he performs It sounded exactly what I needed. But now I am not sure about a face-lift on my relatively young face. Don’t know what to do. To go ahead with it or not
Plus as the procedure is fresh there are no before and after photos.
Appreciate any advice/thoughts/reference

bump... hmm which way to go - still thinking about a mid-face lift with Dr Mendelson but such a big step. I would still love to hear from anyone who has had either had first hand experience with him - or has seen his work in person.

I live in Melbourne also. Have never heard of Dr. Mendelson but I just travelled to Sydney to have an s-lift done. It was worth the trip as I am really pleased with the results.

In response to 'gertie'....I hope it's not too late but I would suggest you stay right away from Mendelson. He ruined my eyes 9 years ago & they can never be rectified. I have posted a lengthier review of my disaster on another site with pics but as your post was 3 months ago it's probably not going to be beneficial. I hope your experience was better than mine! [-X

i concur with snakeeyes, STAY AWAY from Bryan Mendelson. he is a very well marketed very polished butcher. he preformed multiple procedures on me last year including Hydroxyapatit for my cheeks. he ruined my eyes, the scars are visible, i look OLDER and more haggard, the hydroxyapitit is SO UNEVEN it shows to the obvserver.... he has such a nice manner you get really fooled, then when you address obvious issues that need correcting he completely denies responsibility. he has the biggest ego, he is extremely expensive and its all marketing horse shit basically, published author this, glossy office that.... there are cosmetic surgeon who charge 20% what he charges that are far more skilled. I thought I am very astute and did my research & wanted the best. BIG mistake. I now need to find someone to fix up the mess he made of my face.... anyone who know a very skilled face surgeon, please post his/her details here for me, I am gutted & am willing to travel to get my face fixed up.

i repeat, your face is your face, stay away from Bryan Mendelson. if I can save one woman's face by this post it would be worth it.

snakeeyes, have you found anyone to correct Bryan's work?
