"I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone"

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: Full Abdominoplasty, Tummy Tuck

I wish to thank Mr Chan Fuan and his team for an experience that has changed my life for the better. On our first meeting he put my mind at ease; was confident, passionate,precise and obviously a very gifted surgeon. It was at this point I knew I had found the right Surgeon for me.

He was always readily available to answer any questions I had. His team were very helpful and supportive , including the secretaries who work with him ; who were always so pleasant and happy to help out in any way they could. The before and after care from the Nurses in the Blackrock Clinic were fantastic; no task was too big and they were always happy to help and assist.I am more than delighted with the results ,post operation a week on, the end results are better than I could have imagined.

Like any surgery, as a patient, you may fell vulnerable or nervous when contemplating surgery but I am confident to recommend Dr Fuan Chan .He has great interpersonal skills, a very genuine high standard of care for his patients and after meeting a few surgeons before my surgery there is no better Surgeon for the job. On completing my surgery, Mr Chan has been readily available to support me. He has been a pleasure to speak with , he is always so obliging to help and he shows genuine care and concern for all his patients.

Thank you Mr Chan.

Treatment Received: Plastic Surgery
I would describe Mr. Chan as caring, compassionate and a perfectionist. I had to have an unexpected skin graft and had no pain from the donor site or the area the graft was put on. From the first consultation to the follow-ups, Mr. Chan and his team were excellent. He is a credit to his field.

"100% Professional & Personable"
100%Reviewed 29 Apr 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Rhinoplasty
For as long as I can remember I have always had issues with the appearance of my nose and my confidence was always low as a result of it. I was always conscious of the 'hump' on it and how the tip veered to the right. God forbid a picture caught me in the wrong angle, the only thing I would see was my nose! Many times over the years I longed to get it corrected but never had the courage to make the appointment. Well that all changed this year when I said enough was enough. I told myself that I wasn't getting any younger and it was time to take control. I was no longer going to let this cripple my confidence so I did my research thoroughly and made contact with Mr Chan's Clinic.

From the minute I made contact with The Clinic and spoke with Louise Mr Chan's secretary the service was exemplary. At my initial consultation, Mr Chan or Fuan as he insists on been called made me feel so at ease. There was no 'Air of Authority' as one sometimes experiences when meeting a Specialist Consultant but a very relaxed personable gentleman. He left no stone unturned when examining me and explaining the Rhinoplasty Procedure in detail. I was also able to see a 3D mock-up of my potential new nose during the consultation which made everything so real and as you can imagine so exciting.

But it wasn't just as easy as saying 'where do I sign, when can I get it done and here's payment. Mr Chan doesn't work like that. He wouldn't allow me to book my surgery date there and then, he wanted me to go away and ask myself a number of questions like
-was I happy to go ahead with him as my surgeon
-was I sure that he didn't put any pressure on me to do such
-did I fully understand the procedure & to think about any further queries or concerns that I may have before finalizing my decision.

I already knew I wanted Fuan to be my surgeon but once I heard this I was never not going to go ahead with him. It just reaffirmed my initial impression of him as a complete gentleman. He is a man that loves his work and strives to achieve 110% at all times. He is fastidious to the end.

I couldn't recommend Mr Chan enough to everyone. He and his staff go above and beyond the call of duty. Nothing is too much for them. I don't feel words can even come close to explaining how ecstatic I am with the results of my surgery. To anyone thinking about having a rhinoplasty go for it and rest assured that Mr Chan or Fuan as he insists on been called is the man for the job. 100% Professional & Personable.

I recently had ear fold procedure which was practically like going to the dentist. Amazing experience from start to finish. Mr Chan is a pure gentleman with extraordinary talent. He has the knowledge to predetermine the outcome which is key when making your final decision. His genuine interest in his job is reassuring to any patient and would 100% recommend him. Louise is a star, very helpful and answers any questions you may have. Great team!

"I couldn't be happier with the results"

Treatment Received: Breast Implants
I couldn't be happier with the results from my surgery. I was looking for a subtle and natural looking breast implant and that's exactly what I received. Fuan Chan carefully and effortlessly detailed me through the process and showed me exactly what I would look after the surgery. He gave me the option of speaking to past patients who could talk me through the process also. The process and the aftercare was impeccable.

I cannot recommend Blackrock clinic more. The nurses were so kind, caring and understanding. Mr Chan is undoubtedly the most conscientious and professional surgeon I have come across- after going to many consultations in the south Dublin and Wicklow area. Being innately a very self conscious person, he put me at ease immediately.

I really cannot recommend Mr Chan and all the staff at Blackrock clinic enough - prompt in their replies from my many enquiries, incredibly caring for their patients and overall an incredible result.
I am currently 10 days post surgery and am so thrilled with the outcome. My confidence is through the roof and I cannot thank Mr Chan enough for that.

Plastic Surgery

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  -  €7000
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.
