I was first introduced to Mr Fuan Chan by my sister who had undergone corrective surgery following a fall. She spoke so highly of him saying how kind and considerate he was, putting her immediately at ease. Also mentioning how much of a perfectionist he is, which is obviously exactly what you want to hear when you are considering any form of surgery. So when it came to a time when I needed to have a small lump and mole removed he was the first person I thought of and contacted his assistant Louise at the Blackrock Clinic, she could not have been nicer or more helpful.
On first meeting Mr Chan, you instantly know you are in safe hands and working with someone who genuinely is interested and cares. From start to finish this experience with Mr Chan and his team was second to none. For the last number of years I had been considering breast reduction surgery because due to my height and build I was having major issues with my neck and back owing to being completely out of proportion and top heavy, my confidence was at an all-time low and I avoided going out with friends or taking holidays, I was just too uncomfortable!
After some encouragement from my family, I once again approached Mr Chan for some advice. At this point I didn't like looking at myself at all, let alone letting anyone else look, so it took a lot to get me to that appointment, but from the moment I walked through the door and explained my situation and concerns to Mr Chan, all my worries disappeared, he was just so kind, checking in with me making sure I was comfortable at every point of the examination, I have never met a doctor who took such care and time with a patient. From that initial consultation right through to the actual surgery and aftercare, Mr Chan went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with how everything was going, checking in with me post surgery, removing the drains himself the next day. He definitely is a perfectionist, which is amazing. I had my surgery May 2018 and I can genuinely say that it has improved my life in so many ways, I can be so much more active and involved day to day, my confidence has had such a huge boost. I'm loving being back involved with exercise, outdoor activities...and let's be honest, my clothes fit so much better.
The pain in my neck and the groove in my shoulders are long gone, at 41 I feel 20 years younger. I have recommended Mr Chan to so many people at this stage, my only regret is that I didn't do this years ago! Thank you to Louise and Mr Chan for being so kind and supportive, it made the whole journey so much easier.
