Dr. ILANA GALGUT
MB.BCh(Cum Laude) DCH(SA). FRACGP. FCPCA
Dr ILANA GALGUT graduated top of her medical school class in South Africa, 1992.
After immigrating to Melbourne, Australia, she completed her FRACGP specialising program and worked in large women’s and family medical clinics for 20 years. She had always wanted to be a dermatologist, she began working with one of Australia’s first cosmetic dermatologists, and has worked there during her GP specialising program.
Although cosmetic injections and laser treatments were not on the list of career options, Dr ILANA has become known as one of Melbourne’s most experienced and top injectors.
After going through breast cancer in 2011, Dr ILANA recalls a colleague telling her she needed some filler injections to rejuvenate her face. That experience had a huge impact on her as after the treatment, ‘I looked in the mirror and saw ME again, not the cancer. This had a significant impact on me as I realised just how much how you see yourself impacts on how you feel.’
