I love Dr Gordon. He has completely changed my life. I initially came for a Butt lift consultation and he immediately recommended i go on a healthy lifestyle first which is something I’ve struggled with after i had a baby. I cannot wait to start with the program and then get my butt lift. Thank you so much.
Will keep everyone updated on my progress.

At the age of 60, I feel much better about myself

5 50 Neck Lift, Fat Transfer • Paid: R 55000

In Nov 2019 Dr Gordon Cohen did a fat transplant to my face with a Permanent Thread as well. I am more than amazed and extremely happy. At the age of 60, I feel much better about myself. Dr Cohen is straight to the bone which I appreciate so much. Although a had a very low body fat, he still did an amazing job. Dr Cohen seems to excel in everything he does at the clinic. I had a facial called skin-tight today, and although it's a 2-hour drive for me, I will do all my treatments and maintenance at Face and Body. Thank you, Dr for changing my life for the better.

I received fantastic service

5 50 Liposuction • Paid: R 60000

Wow, I don't even know where to begin. I chose this clinic because of the amazing reviews. This place is absolutely gorgeous and you feel so welcome and at home. I had my liposuction done yesterday I did 8 areas on my body, and the service that I received was out of this world. The two nurses Granny and Maria are the best nurses that I have ever had, they are so friendly and caring and they took such good care of me. I adore them.

Thank you, ladies, you are one of a kind. Dr Cohen is very professional and I don't think I would have gotten a better Dr anywhere else than Dr Cohen. Nurse Natalie also took such great care of me in her aftercare facility. I had the best food and the most comfortable beautiful room. She was there the whole time to look after me and see if I'm ok. I give this clinic and the team more than 5 stars.

Thank you so much to each team member. I received fantastic service. Now I have to wait to heal so I can see my results and I'm sure it's going to be excellent results. Once again thank you Face And Body Place for your friendliness and professionalism.

Everything is of very high standards here

5 50 Gynecomastia

This clinic had cheaper rates for gynecomastia surgery compared to others and the staff made me feel very comfortable. I’m aware that it will take 6 months before I see the final results, but I’m satisfied with the progress. My next appointment is in August.

The Melrose Centre is clean and they have a very professional team. I like that they keep in touch with you after the surgery and send you reminders regarding your next appointment. This made it easy to remember when the next follow-up was scheduled.

At the aftercare appointments - they go through my blood tests, check my weight, general progress and they also check to see that I’m not having any allergic reactions to the medication. The doctor gives me good advice on my diet, too. Everything is of very high standards here.

They calmed me down and eliminated any fear or anxiety about the procedure

4.5 50 Skin Lightening

I friend of mine had been to the Melrose Centre and said they were very good. I thought I’d give them a try for skin lightening and I’ve not been disappointed. The staff speak fluent English and are really skilled in dealing with clients. They calmed me down and eliminated any fear or anxiety about the procedure. All my needs were taken care of. I’m happy with how they administered the treatment.

The only thing I believe the clinic could improve on, in terms of customer service, is the frequency of follow-ups. They only gave me a call once to find out if I’d be coming to the next session, and I think they could check in more often to hear how things are going.

The results are good, but I don’t quite have the skin tone I want yet. I think I’ll go for further treatment to improve the situation. I still have two more procedures left. I paid the expected price.

They were so professional and the clinic’s got up-to-date equipment. I was in very good hands

5 50 Medical Aesthetics Specialist Consultation

I had a micro laser peel at Melrose. The clinic came up while I was running an online search and they offered the service I was looking for. I felt really comfortable with the person I spoke to on the phone - there was an almost immediate bond of trust and I knew they were the right place for me.

The clinic was beautiful and I enjoyed excellent customer care. I was really looking forward to being taken care of by the staff there. They were so professional and the clinic’s got up-to-date equipment. I was in very good hands. I’ve had three sessions so far and I’ve scheduled another appointment for next month.

HI Siyanda. Always great to hear such lovely positive feedback. See you next month.

The treatment was definitely fair for the results I’m seeing so far

5 50 Excessive Sweating Treatment

I chose Melrose because they appeared on the top of my search results. I went here to get treatment for excessive sweating. The prices were on the website so I knew what I’d be paying before the time. The treatment was definitely fair for the results I’m seeing so far.

The Melrose Aesthetic Centre is very good - neat, and professional. I thought it was a nice place to get treatment. I’ve already had a follow-up visit. I think I’m done now and I just need to monitor the results over the course of 6-12 months. The professionalism of the staff was first-class, and I’d give them a 5/5 for excellent service.

HI Thami. Thank you for the lovely review. We will see you in 6-12 months.

I would say they treated me the way any customer should be treated, everything was excellent

5 50 Pigmentation Treatment

Compared to the other clinics, this one had several positive reviews. I went here to have my pigmentation treated and I’m quite satisfied with the appearance of my skin now. The price was worth the results. I didn’t pay anything more than what was listed on the website.

Upon arrival, they showed me such respect. I would say they treated me the way any customer should be treated. Everything was excellent. No follow-ups or aftercare was necessary.

Hi Victor. Very happy to read such a lovely review. Give us a call if you ever need anything else attended to.

The customer service at this place is first-class

5 50 Liposuction

Melrose Aesthetic Centre had good online reviews and their communication before the appointment impressed me. It was obvious from their response to my inquiry, that this clinic valued potential patients. I had liposuction done here and I’m more than satisfied with my results. There weren’t any prices listed on their website, but I was given a quote after they made an assessment. I also think I might have gotten a discount because they were running a promotion at the time.

The clinic is very beautiful and professional. Because everything is so pretty, you just know you’re going to be happy there, and that you’ve made the right choice. I really loved the design of the clinic. About two weeks after the liposuction I was up and about - I just needed to take it easy because I’d done quite a few areas and the last thing I wanted to do was overexert myself. It’s not that I didn’t have mobility after the surgery, but I was quite cautious about doing too much too soon.

I have been for follow-ups, and I have my final check-up on the 28th of March. The customer service at this place is first-class! At the entry point, you are welcomed by friendly ladies who make you feel at home. Everything was so classy and modern. To be honest, you wouldn’t want to leave. I would have been happy to spend the entire day there.

Thank you so much for the lovely compliment Xabisa

R 3450 - R 20000

Cheek Augmentation  (1 hour, 2 sessions)

Cheek Augmentation  - The Face & Body PlaceCheek Augmentation  - The Face & Body Place

Non-surgical facial augmentation, such as lip, chin, cheek and nose augmentation can be achieved using a variety of dermal filler products. These are gel-like substances, mostly derived from a naturally occurring body substance called hyaluronic acid, which are carefully injected into the treated areas below the skin.

Their outcome is to fill in hollows and smooth out wrinkled areas. They can enhance the fullness and shape of lips, correct minor shape irregularities in the nose and build up the chin and cheeks. The nature of the product permits the specialist to carefully and more precisely shape the areas required, compared to surgery.

R 3450 - R 10950

Dermal Fillers (45 mins)

Dermal Fillers - The Face & Body PlaceDermal Fillers - The Face & Body Place

We now stock a variety of Dermal Fillers to suit every need.

Tissue Fillers are used for facial sculpting procedures including the chin, cheek, nose, lip augmentation, volume restoration (i.e nasolabial lines) and hand rejuvenation. The cost ranges from R3,450 – R10,950 (depending on the brand and volume of the syringe).  

During the treatment the gel-like substance (Hyaluronic Acid) is injected into the areas of volume loss, giving an immediate improvement in the appearance of lines and wrinkles and so a more youthful and radiant appearance.

The result of a single treatment is immediately noticeable and can last up to a year.

R 15000 - R 29500

Fat Filler (1 hour, 2 sessions)

Fat Filler - The Face & Body PlaceFat Filler - The Face & Body Place

As we age, one of the things that we may notice is the loss of volume in the face, as well as hands, and other areas. Loss of volume is often accompanied by loss of skin elasticity which can further concerns patients. The progressive effects of time on your skin, as well as changes in soft tissue, and other deeper structural components of the face and body bring about appearance changes that include changes in skin texture, loss of plumpness and volume especially in the face, and hands as well as in the female breast.

The affected areas appear more angular or bony, adding to the perception of ageing. Gravity, bone thinning, decreased tissue elasticity and subcutaneous fat loss all exacerbate this. In respect of the face, for many who wanted to rejuvenate a more youthful appearance, a facelift was usually considered the go-to option, but that comes with high costs and lengthy recovery time, as well as pain and inconvenience to life in general. Recent years have seen a significant increase in the number of non-surgical procedures performed for facial rejuvenation. Men and women seeking alternatives to surgical procedures include those who require restoration of lost facial volume, those who wish to enhance normal facial features, and those who want to correct facial asymmetry.

Excessive Sweating Treatment (45 mins)

Hyperhydrosis is treated with Botolinium Toxin @ R6,500 which takes approximately 45min to inject and will last roughly between 6 to 9 months.

While the injections, with a very fine needle are moderately uncomfortable, the benefits are worth it. The cost versus the other treatments is competitive and a study conducted over 3 years found that over eighty percent of the group had sweating issues decline by 75%, and almost ninety five percent only required 4 injections to control the sweating. High improvements were reported in self-confidence and reaction to social situations, compared to before the treatment.

We offer many different non-surgical treatment options for the face. We have several combination treatments which work effectively without having to undergo invasive procedures.

R 8800 - R 45000

Silhouette Lift™ (1 hour, 2 sessions)

Often referred to as the lunch time facelift, the Silhouette face/neck lift is a minimally invasive technique using specialised surgical threads, used to lift up soft, sagging tissues. The threads, made of extra-strong inert polymer, are slipped down from an incision at the temple hairline, and then attached at the jowls and the nasal labial folds. This is ideal for sagging Jowls,Neck, Cheeks, Brow Lifting, The Turkey Neck etc.

 

This treatment allows the skin to present smooth and bright, resulting in fewer wrinkles this improving the skin's overall texture and youthfulness. 

The treatment starts @ R8000/set for Bi-Directional Threads for lifting.

R 12000 - R 50000

Embedded Threading (1 hour 30 mins, 2 sessions)

Embedded Threading - The Face & Body Place

Embedded is a revolutionary procedure for patients who seek a noticeable tightening and lifting of sagging tissue without invasive surgery. This is a one-time procedure which takes as little as 45 minutes to up to 2 hours to perform depending on the area of the face and or neck being treated. As part of the ageing process, there is sagging of the skin as well as the movement of the underlying fat pads in the face. The technique is designed to address both these concerns although like surgery it does not address the condition of the skin. That is improved when skin rejuvenating options are combined with Embedded Threading.

Brow Lift (45 mins)

Are you frustrated with sagging skin in your forehead region? Then the forehead lift and eyebrow lift, also called "the brow lift," may be just what you're seeking. This popular procedure is used to help reverse the aging process (think deep wrinkles and creases across your forehead caused by years of facial expressions and environmental effects). But don't be fooled.

Younger people are also candidates if they have inherited traits, such as lowbrow or other problems.

Buffalo Hump / Dorsocervical Fat Pad Removal (1 hour, 2 sessions)

The Buffalo Hump behind the shoulders is an area of fat accumulation on the back of the neck. The medical name of this condition is dorsocervical fat pad.

The cause of dorsocervical fat pad includes any of the following:

  • Certain medicines used to treat HIV or AIDS

  • Long-term use of certain glucocorticoid medicines, including cortisone, and hydrocortisone

  • Obesity

  • Certain genetic disorders that cause unusual fat accumulation

R 22000 - R 70000

Facial Fat Transfer (1 hour, 2 sessions)

Facial Fat Transfer - The Face & Body Place

Fat grafting is the procedure to remove excess fat cells from one part of the body to another part of the body. Many people correct sunken eyes with fat grafting because it returns a more youthful look to eyes. This procedure is not a Brazillian Butt Lift and can only be done on facial areas.

  • Fat Transfer is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed under local anaesthetic as opposed to general anesthetic
  • It is a walk-in walk-out procedure, so no hospital stay is involved
  • Results are more natural-looking
  • Considerably less pain and no scarring
  • No lengthy time off work or away from daily activities

As we age, one of the things that we may notice is the loss of volume in the face, as well as hands, and other areas. Loss of volume is often accompanied by loss of skin elasticity which can further concerns patients. The progressive effects of time on your skin, as well as changes in soft tissue, and other deeper structural components of the face and body bring about appearance changes that include changes in skin texture, loss of plumpness and volume especially in the face, and hands as well as in the female breast.

R 24950 - R 100000

Liposuction  (1 hour, 2 sessions)

Liposuction is ideal for patients who want to eliminate areas of fat deposits that are resistant to exercise and diet. These fat deposits give rise to unwanted body shape and are often described by patients as “stubborn fat”.

The body areas that are most commonly a concern for patients and result in their seeking out treatment options are the inner thighs and inner knees, saddlebags, the abdomen, love handles and lower back fat, upper arms, buttocks, and double chins. In men, Liposuction has been found effective in treating unwanted fat deposits in the male chest area. *

The costs of the treatment is determined by the areas you want to have treated. The first area costs R24,950 and there is an additional charge of R5,500.00for each subsequent area. Please feel free to read additional information on our website.

You can also view the chart below for the areas that can potentially be treated.

Should you wish to further your inquiry we would need to set up an office consultation in order to assess your requirements and determine the cost for the procedure. 

Consultation costs R750 

R 25000 - R 35000

Neck Lift (2 hours, 2 sessions)

Neck Lift - The Face & Body PlaceNeck Lift - The Face & Body Place

As we age, the skin, tissue, and muscles around the neck and jawline weaken and the skin begins to sag. This results in increased number of wrinkles and an appearance of sagging skin. The same effect can be seen in patients who have lost a considerable amount of weight where there is excess skin in the area.

The Trampoline Neck Lift is a revolutionary procedure for patients wishing to define their jawline and contour the neck area without having to undergo surgery. The treatment results in defining the jawline, sculpting, tightening and lifting of the neck area and can assist in stretching out the wrinkles to give your skin a tighter, lifted youthful neck.

The Trampoline Neck Lift is done using surgical threads that are placed in a specified pattern to tighten the loose skin around the neck and chin area. The tightening of the skin is compared to the stretching of a trampoline mat by means of springs and is the motivation for this technique being called the “Trampoline Neck Lift”.

The technique has become a sought-after treatment for neck rejuvenation since it has a short recovery period and great results that are visible immediately and are sustained for a lengthily period of time.

Nutritional Counselling (1 hour, 6 sessions)

The single greatest tool we can use to achieve this goal is: nutrition. Inadequate amounts of given nutrients can lead to serious medical conditions of deficiency and impaired immune functioning. Conversely, over-eating and lack of exercise can lead to increased risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, lowered immunity and can also lead to psychological problems which further compound the health risks. When the immune system is compromised, in times of stress and when poor diet prevails, fatigue and chronic infections often result. These effects directly jeopardise an individual’s quality of life! So, making the right dietary choices including supplementing the diet where necessary, is an integral part of maintaining a state of wellness.

Acne Scars Treatment - The Face & Body Place

Different types of Acne Scarring include Ice Pick Scars (deep pits), Boxcar Scars (angular scars – normally occur on the temple and cheeks), Rolling scars (have a wave-like appearance) and Hypertrophic (thickened) scars. The type of scarring that develops depends largely on the nature of the damage to the skin and the accompanying repair process.

For Scarring, the treatment we mostly do is Profractional Laser & Dermapen Micro needling.  You can read more about this treatment on our website by clicking on the following links: 

 

Profractional Laser Treatment prices start at R550 for a small area, but for a larger area such as a half/full face the treatment rate will be approximately R3, 550 – R4, 950

It effectively treats and improves a wide variety of skin conditions like wrinkles and fine lines, post-traumatic scars, acne scars, age spots, sun spots, freckles, aging and sun-damaged skin.

Most skin areas can be treated. Popular areas are the face, neck, chest and hands.

Acne Treatment (45 mins, 4 sessions)

Acne Treatment - The Face & Body Place

For the treatment of acne we recommend EPS Chemical peels (R1,095), combined with Omnilux Light Therapy (R250/session) and Blue Light Therapy sessions (R250/session).  Blue Light is recommended f

or acne skin that is more resistant to topical treatments and medications.  It is a gentle and non-invasive method of treating acne. Blue light therapy targets the sebaceous glands, and not the surrounding tissues, killing the bacteria that cause acne. We will also recommend IS Clinical products and Xymogen Supplements to finish off the regime.

These treatments are normally performed at two-weekly intervals and will also improve the skin’s general appearance and condition.

Pigmentation Treatment (30 mins, 4 sessions)

Pigment is controlled by the amount of melanin produced in the body. Dark complexioned people have more melanin, while fair skinned individuals have less. Where isolated areas of skin develop dark spots, this is classified as hyperpigmentation.

This condition is a result of an overproduction of melanin, and is caused by various factors, most notably sun exposure, age, hormonal variations, or genetic factors as well as skin infections or inflammation. It can be treated and improved with the use of specialised lasers, chemical Depigmentation Peels Etc.

Acne Facial (30 mins, 4 sessions)

For the treatment of acne we recommend EPS Chemical peels (R1,095), combined with Omnilux Light Therapy (R250/session) and Blue Light Therapy sessions (R250/session).  Blue Light is recommended for acne skin that is more resistant to topical treatments and medications.  It is a gentle and non-invasive method of treating acne. Blue light therapy targets the sebaceous glands, and not the surrounding tissues, killing the bacteria that cause acne. 

We will also recommend IS Clinical products and Xymogen Supplements to finish off the regime.

Laser Hair Removal (30 mins, 6 sessions)

Laser Hair Removal - The Face & Body PlaceLaser Hair Removal - The Face & Body Place

Many people experience hair growth in areas where it causes them discomfort or embarrassment. Apart from being unsightly, the methods traditionally used to remove it, which are all temporary, can also at times, cause other problems such as ingrown hairs, cuts, infections, or razor bumps.

The Melrose Aesthetic Centre offers Laser Hair Removal which is a more permanent solution to hair reduction.  The laser selectively targets your hair follicles and heats them with infrared energy. Unlike other processes, the laser beam treats many hairs at once, making treatment of large areas practical. 

Depending on the amount of hair to be removed, you may need to be treated about six to eight times at approximately four to six week intervals. Treatment time and cost will depend on the size of the area being treated.

In 1991 she went on to work with Dr Gerard Flageal, a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, where she remained for 18 years. During this time she also underwent further training in the United States of America.
