Jennifer Dublin
Reviewed 29 June 2016 "I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone"
"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."

Plastic Surgery

€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.
€5500  -  €6500
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.
€3500  -  €5500
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).

Facelift
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).

Liposuction
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.

Rhinoplasty
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  -  €9000
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.
€5500  -  €6500
Mini Abdominoplasty
Intraoperatively, the excess skin and fatty tissue are addressed surgically with re-inforcement (plication) of the weakened rectus (abdominal) muscles while ensuring good contour as the endpoint. Liposuction (removal of fatty tissue) is also performed during the surgery if indicated. Upon satisfactory outcome assessed intra-operatively, the wounds are closed by layers using specific plastic surgery techniques to minimise risk of wound breakdown and bleeding complications. The post-operative management is important for a great outcome. Patient wake up from the theatre with an abdominal support garment (binder)and drains. Compression devices and compression support TED stockings with commencement of anticoagulants to thin the blood on the same day minimise the risk of blood clotting in the legs and the lungs which could have serious consequences. The patient is positioned appropriately on the bed to minimize undue tension to the wounds. On discharged, usually within next two to five days, adequate support at home is crucial to facilitate the uneventful recovery. Risk and complications, but are not limited to, include clots in the leg and the potentially fatal clots in the lungs (Pulmonary embolism), bleeding, infection, bruising, seroma, hematoma, contour irregularity, asymmetry, wound healing problem, potential risk of loss of the belly-button (umbilicus) and scarring.
