In surgery there are no compromises.

Dr Bryan Mendelson.

The trusted name in aesthetic facial surgery.

Bryan Mendelson is the choice of patients who want to look refreshed and natural without any trace of surgery. He is known for his advanced techniques, surgical skills and personal commitment to patient care. His modern facelift technique is taught around the world and he is regularly invited to perform demonstration surgery at international conferences.

"Quality aesthetic surgery can lift the spirits, restoring the sense of wellbeing that facial ageing, sadly, so often takes away. But there are no compromises. Only the proper techniques, properly performed can provide a benefit that is natural in appearance and will last for years to come. Having aesthetic facial surgery is not an easy decision. It is a journey – a very personal and important one – and patients need to be carefully supported and cared for at every step, emotionally as well as physically. That is what I and my experienced staff provide"

The real ‘Before and After’ story.

We all enjoy ‘Before and After’ photographs, but they are a very unreliable guide for those considering surgery. That’s because they sidestep the really important pre-surgical considerations.

For instance, almost all photographs show patients within weeks or months after surgery. What you actually need to know is how good will the result be in five, ten or twenty five years? Ask yourself, would looking better for just a year or two represent a good outcome for you? This is a critical ‘before’ surgery consideration and you should always look to see if any long term photographs have been provided for you to assess.
