How To Choose A Cosmetic Surgeon In Ireland

Last Updated : June 23, 2024

When you’ve decided that you want to get cosmetic surgery, one of the first questions you’re going to think of is where should you get your cosmetic surgery performed?

As cosmetic surgeons, we all want to provide the best for our patients by giving them access to high-quality procedures that help them achieve their dream look.

There are a lot of great cosmetic surgeons in Ireland, but how do you choose the right one for you

Today we’re going to run through everything you need to know about choosing a cosmetic surgeon that will perform your procedure to the standards you want, with the level of aftercare you deserve. 


Surgery is life-changing: choose your cosmetic surgeon carefully

Cosmetic surgery, just like any surgery, has its dangers. Every surgical procedure can have complications, which is why a highly-skilled surgeon with years of experience must perform them. 

People get cosmetic surgery to feel better about their bodies, and the only way this can be achieved is to receive the highest quality of care. Poorly-performed procedures can result in unsatisfactory results, excessive scar tissue, and ongoing health problems.

This is why choosing the right cosmetic surgeon and surgery clinic for your cosmetic procedure is incredibly important. 

But what should you look out for when researching your cosmetic surgery of choice?

There are a lot of things to take into consideration, but here are four things that are the most important aspects to consider when choosing your cosmetic surgeon. 


1. What are their facilities like?

No matter how good a cosmetic surgeon is, if they use outdated, poorly designed, or faulty technology, they won’t be able to provide you with a very high standard of care.

We recommend checking in on the clinic you’re thinking of choosing. Conduct in-depth research on their facilities before committing to getting your surgery performed there. 

We’d suggest checking to see if:

  • The clinic uses the latest technology/techniques in the industry
  • The surgery has beds available for overnight stays
  • They have the proper equipment to perform procedures 
  • Their facilities are clean 
  • They’ve passed health inspections

You shouldn’t just check up on how their cosmetic facilities are, you should make sure that things such as their lifts, toilets, and even their cafeteria are up to standard. These little things seem like pointless details but they could be the difference between a successful and rough recovery.


2. Are they accredited and trained?

It’s essential to check if the practice you’ve decided to go to has accredited and trained professional cosmetic surgeons. 

You wouldn’t let an accountant build your house, so don’t let an untrained cosmetic surgeon perform surgery on you. 

How can you check if your surgeon is trained correctly?

Just ask. 

Any professional cosmetic surgeon will happily let you know what training they’ve received over the years. 

If your surgeon doesn’t want to disclose such information with you, then take that as a red flag and look for somebody else to do your procedure. 

Top Tip! If it’s too cheap to be true, your surgeon probably isn’t as qualified as they claim to be. Great results cost money. Get yourself a surgeon who knows what they’re doing, no matter how much it costs. 


3. What brands do they use?

When we talk about what brands they use, we’re talking about implants for breasts, calves, and butts. What kind of botox or fillers do they use in their procedures? Are they high-quality brands or are they cheap and generic no-names?

If your surgeon uses low-grade implants for their breast augmentation procedures or any other procedure for that matter, then you’re not going to get the results you want or worse, you could end up having a bad reaction. 

Having good implants means:

  • Better results and a more natural appearance
  • Less risk of rippling or damage
  • Complications are minimised

Be wary of any very low-price offers for surgeries! If your surgery is a lot lower compared to other clinics they might be using low-grade implants. Always make sure the ones used in your procedure are medical grade and not a cheap alternative. 

Remember! Always ask which brand will be used and then do some research before committing to getting your procedure performed. 


4. How many procedures have they performed?

Would you let a person who’s never built a house before lay the foundations for your home? 

We didn’t think so!

Don’t let a novice perform your cosmetic procedure. 

The surgeon you’re talking to might have performed many procedures in their time, but if they don’t have any experience with the procedure you want, or they’ve only performed a few, don’t work with them. 

You don’t want to be the trial and error to their success. You want to be the end result of years of dedicated practice. 

Talk to your surgeon and ask for examples of their work before committing to them as your surgeon. Get them to show you before and after results so you can clearly see that they’re capable of performing your procedure to the best of their abilities.
