Dr Joni Feldman, Melbourne Cosmetic Surgeon

Dr Feldman has been practising cosmetic medicine and cosmetic surgery at the Clinic of Cosmetic Medicine in South Yarra, Melbourne, and Sydney for the past 25 years, where she offers a range of treatments, including liposuction, facial aesthetics and skin treatments.

Dr Feldman acquired extensive training in liposuction with ACCSM, a major training college in liposuction and other cosmetic surgical procedures in Australia.

Because of Dr Feldman’s technical knowledge and expertise in liposuction surgery she was invited by the Victorian Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS Vic.) to be a member of the government sponsored working group in establishing liposuction guidelines. These guidelines were approved in August 2022.

Joni is still an active member of the government appointed forum who annually revise and amend and update  the regulations for the benefit of the general public.

Dr Feldman is renowned for her work in liposuction due to her substantial education and experience, along with her excellent eye for proportion and balance. For the last 22 years, she has continued to perfect her craft.

Dr Joni Feldman graduated from the University of Melbourne in 1987. She started her training in general medicine. After several years of hospital training, she was drawn to the combination of cosmetic and science required in cosmetic surgery. Both her creative flair and meticulous eye for detail have ensured ongoing success in this field.

Dr Feldman has worked in major teaching hospitals throughout Australia and South Africa. In Australia, she was one of the first to explore the introduction of dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections. Today, due to her detailed, natural-looking results, they remain one of her reknowned procedures, and she has administered over 10,000 injections during her  career. She was also one of the first in Australia to acknowledge the scientific value Vitamin A (Retin-A) as an anti-ageing treatment. Joni’s reputation in the field of anti-ageing prompted the television programme “60 Minutes” to exclusively interview her regarding this scientific breakthrough.

Dr Feldman’s practice is exclusive and highly personalised. She chooses to perform all procedures on her patients herself, never delegating to assistants or nurses. This ensures that all of her patients receive expert treatment every time – while developing a stronger understanding of each patient’s pathology. This level of one-to-one consultation, combined with her meticulous attention to detail has generated an exclusive following of devoted patients.

Although based in South Yarra, Melbourne, where she treats her patients at her registered day procedure centre, she also treats patients from Prahran, Toorak, Richmond and Brighton and surrounding suburbs.
