Treatment Received: Bariatric Surgery Consultation
I went for a Gastric band treatment and I must tell you that for this doctor it was no bother as it went very well. Everything went smoothly and gentle. The clinic itself was based locally which made it convenient for me and the price was within my budget as well.

Everybody was friendly, I was accommodated for right through my treatment and overall i'm delighted with the results.

Treatment Received: Dermal Fillers
Four years ago I had a neck lift and I just needed a follow-up appointment to check it out. I had some dermal fillers here and Dr. Salman was absolutely fantastic!

I found the clinic on the internet and chose them after speaking to a few people. It seemed like a good place to go to.

I thought the clinic was a lovely, clean, professional and friendly place. I had an absolutely fantastic experience. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

"I couldn't recommend this clinic enough A+ for me"
5 50Reviewed 27 Apr 2018 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Breast Implants
I had breast augmentation with doctor salmon, I was very nervous as I wasn't sure about what clinic to pick and which one would give me the results I was looking for. It had been something I wanted for a very long time so I wanted everything to be perfect and to know I was making the right decision. As soon as I went for the consultation I knew I was in the right place the girls in the clinic were so lovely especially Anita the manager she was so lovely and made me feel so comfortable. I booked surgery for 10 days after consultation and was super nervous as soon as I went in the morning of surgery. The nursing team at the hospital are all so lovely and professional they all come and meet you let you know there names and make you feel so confortable, which for me was great because I was so scared.
After surgery I was looked after so well and went home the same day. I had little bit off pain nothing the painkillers don't take away, I was up and going about my every day life 2 days later. I couldn't thank doctor Salmon enough for changing my life the result is mind blowing he is a genius at his job. I couldn't recommend this clinic enough A+ for me.

Amazing brilliant fantastic!

Treatment Received: Gastric Band
I was so impressed with Auralia after my consultation that I booked my gastric band appointment with them. I would have preferred it if the surgery was cheaper, but it was worth it nonetheless. I knew what I was paying beforehand - they quoted me when I met with them before the procedure.

There is an aftercare process involved with gastric band surgery, and I’m still going for my follow-ups now. The staff working at the clinic are excellent!

"The consultation and actual procedure went very well"

Treatment Received: Gastric Balloon
I went to the Auralia Clinic in Dublin to have a Gastric Balloon appointment. The consultation and actual procedure went very well but they had no aftercare as there were no follow ups to check on my progress. I do not think the cost was worth it.

The clinic provided a good procedure and the clinic was neat and tidy.

Mr Dave Keogh responded to this review:

Hi Claire, Many thanks for your feedback. All patients who undergo gastric balloon procedures with us have access to our 12 month after care program. We do not offer this procedure without an after care program. Once the procedure has been carried out, all patients are entitled to full surgical cover, 24/7 emergency phone support, unlimited appointments with our weight loss team, unlimited appointments with our nutritionist and full guidelines. Whilst we depend upon patients making use of this service, we ensure that it is available for every client. Our team will always attempt to contact patients each month but clients must also engage with us and respond to these attempts to engage with the after care program in order to gain the maximum benefit from our program. Once again, many thanks for taking the time to review our clinic.

Treatment Received: Breast Lift,Breast Implants
5 star treatment!

Just had my two weeks check up after mastopexy with implants and I'm delighted with the results. Dr. Salmon made me feel very at ease, as have all the administrative staff and nurses, especially Sister Veronica, at the Dublin clinic. The treatment I received pre and post surgery was incredible, the nursing team is very professional and compassionate. The administration staff phoned every day for the first 4days post surgery to check I was recovering well. I had little or no pain, mild discomfort I would describe it as.I cannot thank Dr. Salmon enough for this life changing procedure. He is a gentleman and excellent in his field. Thank you.

Excellent from start to finish, great follow up post op, staff all very friendly and helpful. Was fully informed prior to surgery and never at any time felt under pressure to go ahead with the operation. Have recommended to two different people since my operation and would have no hesitation to recommend to anyone considering surgery.

Clinic is easy to get to, ample parking and facilities around.

Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric Surgery Consultation
If you are wishing to lose weight but you are unsure about what procedure may be best for you then our bariatric surgery consultation may be the best option for you. This consultation is completely free and there is absolutely no obligation to book your procedure with us. During the consultation we can discuss all available weight loss options and go over the costs of each of them along with explaining our 0% finance option. We will be more than happy to answer any questions you have and you will be sent home with our information packs to read over before making your decision on whether to book your procedure or not.
Gastric Balloon
Our gastric balloon program has proven results in helping our patients to kick start their weight loss or to shift those last few stones off. Our program includes a 1 year after-care program during which you will have regular follow up consultations with our weight loss team whilst also being educated on how to maintain your weight loss long term. You will also receive full nutritional guides, full exercise guides, 24/7 emergency phone support and full surgical cover whilst on the program.
Gastric Band
Our gastric band program is the number one long term weight loss program available. All of our surgeries are carried out in our own state of the art facilities in Dublin by our world renowned consultant bariatric surgeons. Following your gastric band procedure you are enrolled onto our comprehensive after-care program. You will receive full nutritional guides which covers all aspects of the foods you need to be eating whilst being worded in a way that is very easy to understand. You will also receive full exercise guidelines which will be incorporated into your program after you have lost some weight and once it is safer for you to engage in physical activity. You will have unlimited appointments with our weight loss team, providing motivation and ensuring that we can be depended upon by you. You will also have all adjustments/fills of your gastric band included on your after-care program. 

As standard, you will also receive 24/7 emergency phone support and full surgical cover for the entire duration of your program.

Typically, we would expect a weight loss of at least 5-6 stone within the first year of our program, however, we have many patients who have lost as much as 10 stone within this time. 

Gastric Band Adjustment
Have you had your gastric band surgery carried out by a different clinic? In some circumstances, we may be able to provide you with adjustments/fills of your gastric band.

All consultations are completely free.

Please contact a member of our weight loss team for more information.

Gastric Sleeve
Gastric Sleeve

Our gastric sleeve program has proven to be the mosteffective form of long term weight loss for many years for our patients. Ourprogram starts with your gastric sleeve procedure being carried out  in ourstate of the art, fully CHKS, NTPF and ISO accredited, private hospital inDublin by our expert bariatric surgeon.

Following the procedure, you will have lifetime after-carewith our weight loss team, including unlimited appointments and 24/7 emergencyphone support.

Typically, we would expect our patients to loseapproximately 6-7 stone (38-44kg) within the first year, however, this willvary from patient to patient depending on how strictly they stick to the givenguidelines. Many of our patients have lost as much as 11 stone (69kg) withinthe first year.

Here at Auralia Weight Loss Clinic we understand that thedecision to undergo any form of procedure is not one which can be made easily.We also understand that most of our patients prefer to have all the availableinformation before making this decision. For this reason, we offer all of ourgastric sleeve patients free consultations. During this consultation we candiscuss the procedure, the after-care program and the patient requirements infar greater detail whilst also ensuring that the patient is an appropriatecandidate for the procedure. There is no obligation to book the procedure withus during this consultation, it is more of an informal chat.

Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty

Auralia, in conjunction with our world renowned Consultant Bariatric Surgeon, Mr. Jamie Kelly, are proud to be one of the first hospitals on the planet to pioneer a new non-surgical alternative to the gastric sleeve, the endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG).

The endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is a new procedure for those who want the benefits of weight loss surgery, but from a less invasive, non-surgical procedure. It involves stapling the stomach from the inside to significantly reduce its capacity by about 80%. After the procedure, the stomach remains intact but has been stitched from top to bottom to leave a smaller banana shaped stomach through which the food you eat passes.

The major benefit of the endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is that it is performed via endoscopy (through your mouth and down your throat). This means that unlike surgery, there is no cutting, no stapling, no scarring and no wounds! The procedure is carried out by our pioneering surgeon Mr Jamie Kelly, under general anaesthetic and usually takes 60-90 minutes.

The procedure works by reducing stomach capacity and slowing down the speed at which food passes into the bowel. The food you eat goes into a small pocket at the top of the stomach before working its way down through the reduced, banana shaped tube, and emptying into the bowel.  

The recovery period for patients who have undergone an ESG is 2-3 days. This is substantially lower than the 2 week recovery period for traditional gastric sleeve surgeries.

Revisional Bariatric Surgery
Our expert consultant bariatric surgeons have extensive experience in carrying out revisional bariatric surgery.

Revisional bariatric surgery involves either fixing a problem with the initial surgery that you had or converting the initial surgery that you had to a different bariatric procedure.

Our consultant bariatric surgeons have carried out a high number of these cases, varying from placing a gastric band around what was once a gastric bypass or sleeve, to converting a gastric band surgery to a gastric sleeve surgery.
