"I am 1000% happy."
100%Reviewed 23 Jun 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Rhinoplasty
I had it in my head at first to try a consultation at more than one clinic, but coming out of Dr. Riordan's clinic, I just felt confident and fully informed. I knew this was the clinic I wanted to book with for my surgery. Dr. Riordan was so honest and realistic with me, and I felt relaxed that this decision was fully up to me. I never felt pressured one bit. Having rhinoplasty is the best decision I ever made, and the results I am 1000% happy with; you can't put a price on happiness or confidence.

Dr. Riordan truly cares about his clients and took such good care of me from start to finish. I would highly recommend going to the Aesthetic Institute.

"I would highly recommend the clinic"
100%Reviewed 13 Jun 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Rhinoplasty
I had a rhinoplasty procedure a couple of months ago. I had had the same procedure about 5 years ago and was unhappy with the results. My nose seemed to have lost it's shape completely and it was starting to really bother me. The reason I waited so long to do anything about it was because I felt I was magnifying a small imperfection that should have already been fixed.
It was a tough decision even to consider surgery again. It's not a decision that should be made lightly but I know I made the right choice. Anybody considering this procedure should base it solely on what they want and not on what other people say.
I was made very comfortable before and after my operation. I had very little pain and swelling after the procedure and I was back to work in less than a fortnight.

I was referred to the Aesthetic Institute by another surgeon who believed that Mr Colin Riordan would be much more help in my situation. He was right. We had a very thorough meeting about what I wanted and what could be done. He was very professional and gave me all the information that I needed.
His team at the Aesthetic Institute were very warm and welcoming. They were very helpful with getting me prepared for my procedure.
After my operation , the aftercare I received from the clinic was amazing.
I would highly recommend the clinic for anybody who was considering a procedure like mine. I found MR Riordan and his team incredibly helpful and highly professional.

"Rhinoplasty changed my life for the better"
100%Reviewed 29 Oct 2015 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Rhinoplasty
I recently have undergone rhinoplasty surgery with The Aesthetic Institute, Dublin. The results are far better then I ever would have expected, and words can't get express the elated feeling that I have as a result of this. I have never been more happier. I only wish I had got this done ten/fifteen years ago instead of being so unhappy for such a long time for something that was so fixable in a matter of days.
The treatment itself was no big deal, the whole procedure only took 2 hours. I felt no pain whatsoever and was looked after with immense care by all staff.
The surgeon who operated on me was the Best in his field, and highly praised and recommended by all who worked alongside him in the operating room. His expertise/meticulous/ thorough and precise manner ensured he gave me extreme attention to detail and spent every second necessary with me to give me the best results which I wished for. I am eternally grateful for this surgeon for what he has done. He has changed my life for the better.
I stayed in hospital as a day patient and was released later that day. Within 4 days the cast was taken off my nose and was back to my old self.
I would highly recommend anyone who is considering getting this done to go ahead and not think twice about it. In hindsight, I should have gotten this done years ago. The treatment and procedure was fantastic and the results are phenomenal.

I chose the Aesthetic Institute, Dublin to get my rhinoplasty surgery as it is the best clinic out there. This clinic is a highly recommended professional clinic that treats it's patients with the upmost care and confidentiality. The surgeon is the Best in his field and has years and years of experience and qualifications behind him, knowing this information in advance, before I decided to go ahead with the procedure was extremely important to me. I researched several clinics in advance but this clinic was by far the best.

The 3D consultation was extremely insightful and after this I knew straight away I really wanted to get this done. After the consultation I rang reception the next day and confirmed I wanted to go ahead with the surgery. The receptionist was extremely helpful and friendly and booked the date of surgery immediately. Everything was so efficient, it happened so quickly with such an easy smooth no hassle approach.

I am extremely happy and satisfied by the way I was handled and dealt with from every aspect. I would highly recommend anyone considering this surgery to contemplate on going with Aesthetic as they are the Best out there. The results are amazing and I could never have expected such fantastic results. This has now changed my life and I am eternally grateful for this.

"always made me feel comfortable"
100%Reviewed 09 May 2015 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: Rhinoplasty
Had first consultation with Mr. Colin Riordan was in November 2014. I explained Mr. Riordan what I would like to change in my nose and he explained and drew diagrams along with 3D pictures to show me exactly how my nose is going to do look like after surgery. Felt confident he knew what I wanted so went ahead with the surgery a few months later. He came in before the surgery for me to go through exactly what I wanted done to be 100% on what outcome I expected. I trusted Mr. Riordan with my rhinoplasty. Laura his secretary has been a great help and support. She always made me feel comfortable.
It’s 2 months after my surgery, still swelled but all ready can see a big deferent. I'm so glad I went with Mr. Riordan for my surgery. I love my new nose!!

"the results are good"
70%Reviewed 19 Mar 2015 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Rhinoplasty
Treatment went well ,the results are good,the communication with the secretary was excellent but the one with the doctor a bit poor. I wasn't told in detail what to expect after the surgery and the recovery time was longer than the initial talk. Between the first appointment and the surgery date I haven't met the doctor for further talks ,all communication was done via email and just with the secretary.

Mr Colin Riordan responded to this review:

Thank you Mihaela for letting us know about your experience with the Aesthetic Institute. We are very pleased to know that you find the overall result of the procedure to of been excellent. Recovery time is very variable between individuals and this is always communicated to the patient during the consultation. At the Aesthetic Institute there is never any limit to the number of preoperative consultations available with your Consultant Plastic Surgeon. Thank you again for your positive feedback.

"Helped me pick the right size and shape"
Clinic's favourite review
100%Reviewed 10 Jun 2015 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Breast Implants
I wanted a breast augmentation as I was a small A and was hoping to go to at least a C cup. I did a lot of research and had consultations with many consultants.
The first appointment with the 3D view was very helpful and enabled me to pick the right size and shape implant for my body. This was the only clinic to offer this service. I wanted to know what I was going to look like instead of being surprised and maybe disappointed I didn't go bigger or smaller.
I went for the anatomical shape which is more natural looking and under the muscle. Under the muscle is more painful after surgery but I think a week of discomfort is worth a natural looking augmentation. I was out of work for 10 days. It's like rebuilding your muscles again because it took me awhile to open doors, drive and even open shampoo bottles etc. At the 6 week mark I was back in the gym doing my full workout.
My breasts are very perky and I don't need a bra at the moment. I travelled from Munster and i stayed in Dublin that night. Overall I am very happy I decided to have the procedure done. I would recommend anybody to have this procedure done with Mr Riordan.

Mr Riordan is a perfectionist which is comforting to know when you are spending €5,500. He gave me a few examples on the 3D viewer and suggested which size he thought was best for me. I went with the size he suggested which I believe is perfect for my size and shape. My scars are healing nicely, Mr Riordan was very neat. His clinic is very clean and Laura on reception is extremely friendly and easy to communicate with.
The surgery took place in Blackrock Clinic which was nicer than a hospital environment and the nurses were very friendly.
