"I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone"
Clinic's favourite review
5 50Reviewed 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.

"I am extremely happy with the results. My nose is so much straighter and I no longer have a bump"

Treatment Received: Rhinoplasty
The treatment I had was a rhinoplasty. I broke my nose when I was a child and ever since then I hated my nose especially the side profile as there was a hump. I’ve wanted to get it fixed for years but was quite young so never really thought about it seriously. I am now 22 and decided to research it last year. I booked a consultation with Dr. Chan’s secretary Louise who was so friendly and helpful.

When I met Dr. Chan he was very friendly and made me feel comfortable straight away. He took his time to explain everything to me and to answer any questions I had. I knew that I wanted him as my doctor so he told me to take my time and think about it before coming back with a decision. About 3 months later I decided to go ahead with it and booked my operation for June 2018.

I was extremely nervous on the day of my surgery but everyone in the hospital made me feel so much better and relaxed. I met Dr. Chan before my surgery, he reassured me and described to me what was being done. After my surgery was done I stayed overnight and the care given by all the staff was exceptional.

Dr. Chan checked on me multiple times during my stay. I did not have any pain at all during my recovery and my bruising was completely gone after about a week. I had my cast on for 3 weeks and I am extremely happy with the results. My nose is so much straighter from the front and I no longer have a bump. I was expecting a lot more swelling but it looks amazing to me.

I am so glad I chose Dr. Chan and Blackrock Clinic and I would highly recommend anyone who is thinking about this procedure to go to Dr. Chan.

"Thank you from the bottom of my heart for a result I could only have ever dreamed about"
5 50Reviewed 25 Jun 2018 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Breast Lift,Tummy Tuck
I am in my mid-forties with a slim build and after 4 babies and 3 C-Sections. No matter how much exercise I did, I could not change the loose skin that remained after the pregnancies over the scars. The boobs took a hammering too from breastfeeding. While I looked very good in my gym clothes and was very fit I wanted some of my pre-baby body back. So I started researching mommy makeovers and decided a tummy tuck with a breast lift would be the best option for me. I did not like the idea of implants but was waiting to discuss this with the selected doctor.

I waited such a long time to have this work done that when I started to search for a suitable doctor to carry out this work I wanted to make sure I found the best. Online searches led me to Dr. Fuan Chan whose reviews were so good I found hard to believe.

I booked an appointment with Louise, his extremely helpful and pleasant receptionist and went to see Dr. Chan. He was extremely pleasant, informative, very genuine, understanding of my position and what I wanted to achieve. He outlined how he wanted to make sure I was a suitable candidate for the surgery before proceeding. He agreed that a breast lift would be the best option but felt unsure if he could do both procedures on the same day. There was no sell and if anything it was the opposite. He sent me away to really think about what I wanted to do before booking the surgery.

I booked the surgery and at a review meeting the week before. He felt that because of my overall fitness and health he could agree to my request to perform both procedures on the same day. I am now 3 weeks post-op and to say I am ecstatic with the results is an understatement. The scars are healing brilliantly and are the neatest I have ever seen.

I have the boobs of an18 year old, perky and better than I have ever had in my life and completely natural looking. Gone is the loose skin and my tummy is so tight and lean. Pain meds after the surgery kept me comfortable and were no longer needed after the first week.

After meeting him for the first consultation, I knew I would be well taken care of and he would do his very best for me. Secondly, all the online searches and reviews gave such an overwhelmingly strong sense that this was the right person for the job which I understood after the consultation.

The care in the hospital was excellent and Dr. Chan checked in with me every day while in the hospital for the 2 nights. He removed the drains, changed the dressing himself and admitted to being a perfectionist with every surgery being a work of art and the body his sculpture. This man lives up to everything written about him and more.

I cannot recommend him enough. World Class. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for a result I could only have ever dreamed about.

Treatment Received: Treatment for Wrinkles,Dermal Fillers
I visit Mr. Chan twice a year to ensure that I keep up-to-date with my skin care and treatments. I have treatment for wrinkles and fillers. Since I changed to Mr. Chan a few years back the results have been extraordinary and I have never been happier.

The care and attention from Mr. Chan cannot be underestimated, he is the most attentive, knowledgeable, professional I have ever dealt with and would have no hesitation in recommending him if you want to look your "best self".

You will be amazed by the immediate results and more importantly, the long-term goals you have for your "best-self" are shared with Mr. Chan and are the focus for you and him at each session.

The clinic surroundings are discrete and caring. Louise will always accommodate you and your needs.

Treatment Received: Full Abdominoplasty,Breast Lift
I had my consultation yesterday with Mr Chan about abdominoplasty and breast lift.

Absolutely delighted I choose him as my surgeon, he is kind, understanding, sympathetic and very easy to talk to.
Mr Chan's expertise and professionalism were evident immediately. He gave me every piece of information I needed without asking, he told me to go away and think about it for 2 weeks ( I don't need to I'm going ahead! ) before making a decision about my surgery.

He showed me examples of his work, and the outcomes. He gave me realistic expectations of my results and superb advice on how to prepare in the time leading up to surgery ( you'll be pleased to know I started swimming this morning!!) Mr Chan removed my only fears ( drains scare me ) and explained the reasons why they were needed which helped immensely to understand the treatment.

As an initial consultation I give him 11/10 and at 9 am on day 14 expect a call to go ahead. Cannot recommend this gentleman enough!

Outstanding informative, reassuring and professional in all aspects of consultation.

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"
5 50Reviewed 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.

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  -  €10000
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
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.
€7000  -  €10000
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.
