Medical Aesthetics

Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are substances that are injected just below the surface of the skin to replenish the supporting elements, filling lines, wrinkles and scars from the inside out. Dermal fillers can restore a smoother, more youthful appearance. While most of the new fillers do not require patch testing and are not animal based products, your consultant will discuss this treatment with you more thoroughly.
Medical Aesthetics Specialist Consultation
Mole Removal
Following consultation with your GP, you may be referred to Eccles Clinic for assessment of your moles. Mole removal take place in order to analyse the mole and confirm it is not malignant (i. e. containing skin cancer). Local anaesthetic is used in mole removal with minimal side effects.
Scar Removal
Spider Veins Treatment
Thread veins, broken veins or telangiectasia are small red or blue veins which can appear anywhere on the body but are most common on the face and legs. Thread veins can appear as single veins, widely dispersed or as a collection of vessels rising from a single point.
Treatment for Wrinkles

Plastic Surgery

Brow Lift

In brow lift surgery, also known as a forehead or eyebrow lift, a full incision is made across the top of the scalp behind the hair line. Muscles are tightened while excess skin is removed, and forehead skin is elevated to lift the position of the eyebrows and eliminate horizontal wrinkles. The initial incision is then sutured closed.

The result is a refreshed look with a smoother forehead, reduced frown lines and an elevated position of the eyebrow line. Typical recovery times are short and patients experience minimal discomfort. Alternatively, brow lifts can be performed endoscopically – a method which is less invasive than traditional surgery – further reducing scarring and recovery time.

Cheek Implants
Chin Implant
Eyelid surgery
The incision usually starts at the outer margin of the eyelashes.  The fat pads below the muscle are usually reduced and the skin is then lifted upwards and outwards, gently tensioning the area and removing any overlapping skin. The incisions are closed with very fine sutures under the skin and Steri-Strips™ on the surface of the skin. This surgery is usually performed under general anaesthetic and may require an overnight hospital stay.
Eye Lift
As you age, eyelid’s skin stretches and the muscles supporting them weaken, causing lids to sag. Blepharoplasty repairs drooping eyelids by removing excess skin, muscle and fat. Upper and lower lids can be operated on together or separately; your consultant will advise the most suitable procedure for you. Surgery typically lasts from one to two hours and may be carried out as a day procedure.
Mini Facelift
Neck Lift
Performed to set prominent ears back closer to the head. Ear reshaping involves the reshaping and / or repositioning of the ears. During the procedure, surgeons sculpt and reshape the cartilage in the ear or develop a new pocket behind the ear to accommodate the repositioned ear. The ears are then stitched into the new position using cleverly concealed incision marks in the natural crease behind the ear. This surgery is usually completed in one-and-a-half to two hours under a general anaesthetic, or as a local anaesthetic procedure.
Plastic Surgeon Consultation
This is for individuals who have suffered trauma, sports injuries or those unhappy with the appearance of their nose. During the procedure, usually carried out under general anaesthetic, surgeons alter the size, shape and length of the nose and nostrils. Patients with deviated septums or problems with nasal breathing may opt for septo-rhinoplasty to straighten the nose and improve air flow. Augmentation rhinoplasty is performed to build up the nose in the case of a flattened bridge or a weak nose tip.

Rosacea Treatment
Roughly 10% of adults are affected by rosacea, with symptoms usually appearing in the second or third decade of life. Those with rosacea flush easily and can develop redness, pimples and thread veins on the cheeks nose and forehead. Flushing is exacerbated by hot spicy foods, alcohol, sunlight, extreme environmental heat or cold, as well as certain cosmetics.

Laser Skin Resurfacing
A port wine stain or naevus flammeus is a vascular birthmark consisting of superficial and deep dilated capillaries in the skin which produce a reddish to purplish discoloration of the skin. They are so called for their colour, resembling that of port wine. Lasers have made the biggest impact on treatment, because they are the sole method of destroying the capillaries without significantly damaging the overlying skin.

Laser and Pulsed Light Vein Treatment
Stretch Marks Removal
Hypertrophic scars are usually difficult to eradicate when treated by traditional destructive methods. Cosmetically unsatisfactory or inadequate results have been produced from treatments advocated in the past. The complexity of wound healing may culminate in the reappearance or even worsening of hypertrophic scars when treated with surgical revision.

Mr Denis Lawlor

Job Title:
 Breast Surgery, Cosmetic Surgery, Hand Surgery, Plastic and Reconstuctive Surgery


Denis Lawlor is the founder of Eccles Clinic. Having qualified in medicine from UCD in June 1969 he pursued a surgical career and from early on wished to become a plastic surgeon.

Eccles Clinic is founded on the basis of "see and treat". This allows us to treat more patients on an outpatient basis which is preferable to a lot of people requiring minor procedures. Post the healthcare cutbacks in the late 80’s, Mr Lawlor made efforts to reassess how more patients could be treated effectively with more reduced cost. A simple idea of ‘see and treat’ for trauma patients led to a 25% reduction in admissions in that area.

The idea now continues at Eccles Clinic, as a very large number of plastic surgery patients can be treated with local anaesthesia as an outpatient on a ‘see and treat’ basis.

Mr. Lawlor is a co-founder and ex-chairman of the Irish Association of Plastic Surgeons (IAPS). He is also the co-founder and ex-president of the Irish Hand Surgery Society (IHSS).

Following his consultant appointment he took a keen interest in teaching, training, and expanding the specialty so that more consultants were available to treat the public. He was the RCSI representative on the Special Advisory Committee for the UK and Ireland, overseeing surgical training standards. During his career, he has seen plastic surgery consultant numbers grow from five to twenty and training slots from one to eighteen.

1973 Obtained his fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeon Ireland (RSCI).
1979 Was made a Specialist Registrar (SpR) in Plastic Surgery at the RCSI.
Took up a fellowship at the Microsurgery Research Centre at St. Vincents hospital in Melbourne, Australia (now known as the Bernard OBrien Institute of Microsurgery).On his return, he introduced, for the first time in Ireland, reconstructive microsurgery procedures for patients here.
1981 Was a clinical assistant to Mr. John Heuston at St. Georges Private Hospital, Sydney, Australia
1982 Became a fully accredited Plastic Surgeon at the RCSI.
1984 Was a clinical assistant to Mr. Fred Nicole, Plastic Surgeon at Harley Street and the Wellington Hospital in London.
1984 He was appointed as a Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Dr. Steevens hospital, James Connolly Memorial hospital and the Mater hospital.
1988 He moved with the specialty from Dr. Steevens hospital on its closure to St. Jamess hospital during a time of crisis in the health service.
1989 With the input of the Department of Health, he initiated the first Comhairle na nOspidéal review of the specialty of Plastic Surgery, delivering their report in 1993. The report was fully implemented before the second review was undertaken in 2005.
1994 He established, what was at that time, the National Laser Surgery Unit at St. James hospital.
2006 He took early retirement from the HSE.
2009 Founded the Eccles Clinic.
