"I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone"
Clinic's favourite review
100%Reviewed 29 Jun 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Tummy Tuck, Liposuction
For as long as I can remember my 'tummy' has always been an issue for me. The new dress never quite sat right. Looking in the mirror was a chore and the focus was entirely on my stomach area. It became a real psychological issue over time. I had researched the procedure of tummy tucking and liposuction for years but was never sure I was finished having children so I always had it in the back pocket with the promise that 'someday' I'd get it done. When I had my second child, that definitely sorted out that uncertainty and that 'someday' became reality when I met with Dr Chan and instantly felt he was the person to perform the surgery for me. His passion for the procedure was infectious and I was so excited on my surgery day. I've had the most amazing experience with Mr Chan, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone thinking of having any cosmetic procedure. He is an artist and my results have been nothing short of a work of art. I had tears in my eyes seeing the before and after pictures as I finally had the tummy I had dreamt of for so long. Nothing can express the feeling I have, the psychological weight has lifted instantly. I know for certain that Mr Chan is the best there is. Thank you so so much

Such an amazing experience. Money cannot buy you the therapy you need if you feel about your tummy the way I felt about my tummy. From the moment I met Mr Chan, he was so aware of the psychological effects it had on me. The whole experience has been amazing, start to finish. The pictures here are before and after (after is actually only 5 days after) - such a difference right!!!!

If you are thinking of this procedure, this is the place to come.

Treatment Received: Breast Implants
I had a breast augmentation with Mr. Chan and cannot recommend him highly enough. He gives his patients a lot of time pre-op to discuss what your desired outcome is, how the procedure will go and what to expect post-operatively. The care on the day at the clinic was fantastic and the nurses were very attentive. I’m extremely happy with the outcome and Mr. Chan has created exactly the look I wanted to achieve.

Lovely clinic and brilliant staff.

"He doesn’t just do his job he cares about his patients mental and health well being"
100%Reviewed 15 Feb 2018 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Tummy Tuck
I had a Full Tummy Tuck procedure with Mr. Chan and the results are absolutely amazing. Never did I believe I could have such a perfect figure. Mr. Chan is the most amazing person you could ever meet or know, he doesn’t just do his job he cares about his patients mental and health well being. Even when Mr. Chan felt I wasn’t ready to have the procedure he refused to do it until I was100% sure. That alone made me feel he really cared about his patient's health. And to add to it his secretary and the manager are the same, they are the nicest people you could ever meet.

Dr. Chan spent 5 hours doing my procedure and made sure I was comfortable throughout it all. He said to me that this meant allot to him because of how much it meant to me and it was so important I got the results I was happy with. I did everything he told me to look after the healing of the procedure and he told me this is why I was having such amazing results. To follow his instructions is so important part of the procedure. I am still doing as he said and couldn’t be happier, each day seeing the results better and better as it’s healing.

Thank you to all of you for completely changing my life in a way I never thought possible especially Dr. Chan. You really are an amazing person and have such passion in your work. I felt so safe that I had no fear going through everything because I knew I am safe in your hands with a gut feeling from the moment I met with you for consultation. I know anyone that meet with you for a consultation will not hesitate in the slightest going ahead and will not want to go to anyone else. I will definitely see you again in the future Mr. Chan and if I ever need anything else I will only ever consider you. Thank you so much for everything.

The Clinic itself was like a hotel I forgot I was in a hospital it was spotless. All the staff that worked there were amazing and so nice to me. I highly recommend this clinic to anyone.

I had anti-wrinkle injections and fillers done with Dr. Chan and I am absolutely delighted. I was a bit nervous about having work done at my age (70). My face is much softer and my skin has a glow to it. I am also using the Obagi Skin Products he recommends and they are fantastic.

Treatment Received: Breast Lift
I went for a long-awaited Breast Lift Surgery and scar revision of my abdomen with Mr. Chan and I could not be happier. I was so nervous before the surgery but Mr. Chan was so helpful and told me to try and focus on the results, how wonderful they are! Its only been two weeks and I can't believe the difference.

This surgery was something I thought about for years and now I am on the other side of it. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Chan and his team. His expertise is second to none and he really cares about his patients. Thank you so so much for everything.

Treatment Received: Rhinoplasty
Mr. Chan is a remarkable man. He will put you at ease and ensure you have the utmost confidence in his ability to deliver results. I am 100% sure I chose the best possible person to carry out the surgery. He offered great advice regarding my VHI cover and the whole process was very straight-forward. The aftercare and attention to detail were top notch.

Would recommend to anybody without hesitation. A truly kind, genuine and upbeat man - couldn't ask for more.

"A truly gifted, passionate surgeon who cares deeply about what he does"
100%Reviewed 26 Aug 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Open Rhinoplasty
Dr. Chan is a truly gifted, passionate surgeon who cares deeply about what he does. Tomorrow I will be one month post-op from my open rhinoplasty and couldn't be happier with the results.

For a bit of background, I traveled up from Belfast to attend the consultation, however, I was hesitant about the €200 fee. This hesitation disappeared completely as soon as I met Dr. Chan. I knew I wanted him to help me. He was professional but still, could make us laugh. He immediately understood the negative effect my appearance was having on my confidence and assessed that I was in a good state of mind and had thoroughly thought this decision through before he even agreed to examine me. He was more concerned about my well-being than the money.

Dr.Chan created a 3D render of my face that allowed him to adjust the nose's shape. After bringing this home and studying it for a month I emailed a few changes I wanted and was invited to a second free appointment to discuss these changes. All went well with the surgery and now I feel like I can finally move on with my life as I am not obsessing constantly over a flaw I felt held me back from such simple and major things.

If you have one of these flaws that seem to damage your confidence or sense of worth then I think you should just go for it. From my personal experience, Dr. Chan was able to give me a better result than I anticipated. He made my nose significantly smaller and reduced a bump on the bridge but the result still looks like me and appears perfectly natural. I can't thank Dr. Chan enough.

Blackrock Clinic itself is gorgeous and extremely clean. The staff from the doctors to the cafeteria workers were all incredibly nice and easy-going. Louise, Dr. Chan's secretary was amazing. She answered my countless emails and phone calls and even called a taxi to find me when I got lost in Blackrock town. She went beyond good customer service that day!

Plastic Surgery

From €5500
Arm Lift
Breast Implant Revision
€5500  -  €6500
Breast Implants
Breast augmentation is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries requested by the female patients. It is worth emphasizing that breast augmentation surgery is not just a procedure of placing an implant to increase the cup size of the breast. It involves formal pre-operative consultation, clinical examination, patient education, implant selection that fits the patient’s overall aesthetic appearance (characteristics of hips, waist, chest and shoulders), optimum design and location of the incision, surgical placement of the implants at the correct location and post-operative management. The patient is strongly encouraged to be actively involved in the whole process in order to achieve the outcome which will satisfy both the patient and surgeon.
€6000  -  €8000
Breast Lift
Breast lift surgery, known as mastopexy in plastic surgery, is a surgery performed on the breast to re-shape the drooping or sagging breast (breast ptosis). It is important to understand that breast lift surgery does not only lift the breasts but also the nipples. The cause of breast ptosis are multifactorial. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, aging, severe weight loss, gravity and hereditary factors are implicated in the development of breast ptosis.
€6000  -  €7500
Breast Reduction
Breast reduction surgery attempts to transform symptomatic large breasts to a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing breast which fit the patient's overall form, function and aesthetic appearance. Ensuring that the operating surgeon and the patient are in agreement regarding the operative goals is the key to success in breast reduction surgery.
€4000  -  €8500
Eyelid surgery
Upper blepharoplasty aims to preserve the volume and optimizing the upper eyelid folds and its definition leading to an aesthetically pleasing and youthful appearance. There are 3 main areas that are being addressed surgically during blepharoplasty: a) the excess skin (laxity), b) the orbicularis oculi muscle and c) the fat compartment beneath. The decision to excise or remove either one of the three components or all of the three components is determined by the severity and appearance of the peri-orbital area. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is a much more challenging procedure compared to upper eyelid blepharoplasty. Specifically, excision of skin and Orbicularis Oculi muscle tissue is conservative. Excessive removal of the three fat compartments during lower eyelid blepharoplasty can lead to hollowness and further revealing the aging peri-orbital area. Fat injection and the appropriate use of a small amount of filler can be beneficial to treat the lower eyelid hollowness but over-use and excessive amount will create severe and unwanted complications such as contour irregularity, changing the eye shape, asymmetry and severe prolonged swelling or oedema which can be very difficult to treat. The small area of transition from the lower eyelid to the cheek, which is known as the ‘lid-cheek junction’ which is best appreciated in profile view. It is smooth with a good contour in youth but becomes attenuated or loss with the aging process. Besides addressing the above 3 components (skin, muscle, fat) as in upper eyelid surgery, the restoration of smooth lid-cheek junction is of paramount importance in order to achieve great outcomes with facial harmony. In lower eyelid surgery, the surgical incision can be placed at the eyelashes margin or through the conjunctival (transconjunctival approach).
€7500  -  €10000
Facelift surgery is no longer a procedure that simply involves only tightening of the skin or trimming off excess skin from the face. In the modern world of plastic surgery, facelift surgery has evolved from simple facial skin tightening surgery to a more anatomically detailed surgery leading to more natural looking appearance with safe and more predictable outcome. Shape and contour restoration are the goals of the facelift surgery. It is age-orientated to the patient so that it looks natural in that particular patient. It is worth indicating that we age differently in different part of our face. Thus, many surgical techniques are used in facelift surgery to accommodate the vast variation of patients’ biophysical profiles. The first step to excellent outcomes is thorough pre-operative facial analysis and clinical assessment to ensure patients’ safety and suitability to undergo the surgery with minimum anaesthetic and surgical risks. It can not be emphasized more strongly that, often it is the little things or nuances that push the surgical outcomes from good results to great results. This is even more so in facelift surgery (Rhytidectomy).

Inverted Nipple Surgery
Early liposuction was associated with significant blood loss, which limited the amount of fat that could be removed in a single procedure. In 1987, Dr J. Klein introduced the tumescent technique in liposuction surgery. This tumescent technique involved the infiltration of solution which contained local anaesthetic agents and epinephrine to the site of fatty tissue prior to liposuction. This technique enables removal of larger volumes of fat without excessive blood loss which translates to better safety and patient care. During the liposuction procedure, specially designed cannula(probes) of varying size are use, depending on the deposition, volume and characteristic of the fat at the target sites. Liposuction by itself is not a technically difficult procedure but the challenge lies in having the aesthetic sense to achieve a great contour and smooth transition that fit the aesthetic ideal for the patient. With better surgical techniques and medical advances, liposuction has become one of the safest procedures in cosmetic surgery. In addition, liposuction has also become a common procedure being used in combination with other surgery such as tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), breast surgery and fat grafting surgery. The success of surgery is in ensuring that the operating surgeon and the patient are agreed the same page operative goals and expectations. There are inherent risk and complications, these include, but are not limited to, bleeding, infection, bruising, seroma, contour irregularity and asymmetry.

Ear fold - A New Innovation To Correct Prominent Ears

Ear correction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures currently being done in Ireland

. Having protruding ears can significantly impact on self-esteem and people can be very self-conscious about their appearance, particularly when they are in their teens. 

A simple invention called the earFold device has proven to be extremely effective. These are metal alloy clips we use to pin back the ears of a patient, to create a customised result.

The goal is for improvement but never perfect result is the main message in aesthetic rhinoplasty. Of note, 90% of the success of aesthetic rhinoplasty surgery is in making sure that the operating surgeon and the patient agree on the operative goals. Pre-op photographs and more importantly, the adoption of most advanced and latest computer generated 3D simulated images during consultation provide for better communication. They also serve to provide simulated results so that patient can appreciate where the changes will occur. Additionally, the 3D images will also be used intra-operatively as an additional guiding tool for the desired outcome. Of note, it is important to state that the 3D computer images is a simulated results and cannot promise the patient that it will be the identical result, but every effort is made to achieve the most optimum outcome for the patient.

Tummy Tuck
he abdomen (tummy or belly) is one of the most commonly affected areas of our body displaying the unpleasant aesthetic and functional issues as a results of obesity, weight loss and pregnancy or a combination of these factors. The main components for success are establishing good patient and doctor relationship, careful patient selection and education, with measures to reduce surgical complications while achieving earlier recovery, better contouring of the shape with less post-operative wound healing issues. The patients may present with either flaccid skin, excess fatty tissues or weak abdominal muscles (diastasis of the rectus muscles) or combination of the above. Preoperatively, patients' goals and expectaions are assessed, including fitness for surgery and history of smoking, diabetes and use of anticoagulants. Similarly, clinical examination also involves the identification of any bulges (hernia) at the abdomen or (belly button) umbilcus. Previous surgical scars on the abdomen can complicate the surgery, and in certain instances leading to the patient's unsuitability for tummy tuck surgery. Of note, patients are also informed of the scars and understood that any stretch marks(striae) on the abdomen will still remained after the surgery.
€7000  -  €10000
Full Abdominoplasty
Pre-operatively, patient's medical conditions and general health status are assessed and optimized if indicated. Surgery is strongly against unless ceasation of smoking for at least 3 months and weight stabilised for at least 1 year especially in post severe weight loss patient. Marking with the patient standing and lying down are done in the morning on the day of surgery or the night before surgery. The procedure is performed under general analgesia with adherence to specific protocol regarding safety, positioning of patients on the operating table and use of compression devise on the legs together with relevant measures such as keeping patients warm and well hydrated during the surgery in order to minimize complications.
