Our team of plastic and related consultants provide a comprehensive surgical service for all treatments from trauma to cosmetic surgery.
All our surgeons are on the Specialist Register of Plastic Surgeons and are members of the Irish & British Associations of Plastic Surgeons.
Who we treat
Our expert team sees patients for medical reconstructive surgery. This includes those being treated for:
- congenital conditions
- skin cancer
We also see patients for cosmetic surgery. Cosmetic surgery is a field of plastic surgery concerned with maintaining or restoring appearance.
If you're interested in a procedure, we recommend you discuss it with your GP first. They can then refer you to the plastic team at Hermitage Clinic.
Cosmetic and reconstructive procedures
Learn more about some of our procedures below. Contact our consultants if you'd like to see a complete list of treatments.
Breast augmentation involves surgery to place an implant behind natural breast tissue. This procedure increases the size of your breasts.
Breast augmentations can be done to reconstruct breasts following a mastectomy or a congenital condition. They can also be done to restore breast volume, perhaps after weight loss or pregnancy.
Breast reduction involves surgery to reduce the size of your breasts. Both fat and skin are removed from the breasts as part of the process.
Breast reductions can be done to provide relief from physical and psychological symptoms caused by the weight of large breasts. They can also be done to change the shape of your breasts.
Breasts can sag due to weight loss, pregnancy or breastfeeding. Mastopexy, also known as a breast lift, involves surgery to lift and shape breasts. During a mastopexy, excess skin is removed and breast tissue is shaped.
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure designed to help lift brows and open the eyes for a youthful appearance.
The procedure involves tightening or removing select facial muscles responsible for the drop in brow position. It does not involve the eyelids nor any other part of the face.
Eyelid surgery involves removing excess skin and fat from around the eyes. This helps create a wide-awake, youthful look. The procedure can be carried out on the upper and lower eyelids.
Ageing causes the skin around the eyes to lose elasticity and muscles to slacken. This can cause bagginess. Loose folds can develop on the upper eyelids and deep creases on the lower eyelids.
A facelift, or neck lift, is a type of surgery used to give a youthful appearance. A facelift involves tightening face and neck skin tissues, moving muscles and repositioning fat. A facelift is a delicate procedure that aims to recreate youthful facial contours.
Otoplasty, or ear reshaping, is a surgical procedure that can reduce ear size, make ears more symmetrical, reshape them or position them closer to the head. The procedure can be done from about 5-6 years of age, once ears have reached, or nearly reached, their full size.
Rhinoplasty, or nasal surgery, involves shaping the nose. Nasal surgery can improve your breathing as a result of changed nose structure. It can also change the appearance and proportion of your nose.
An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is a surgery designed to remove excess skin from the abdomen. At the same time, it can tighten your abdominal muscles.
Tummy tucks can be done to tighten the entire abdominal wall following a significant weight change or multiple pregnancies.
Liposuction, also known as liposculpture or suction-assisted lipectomy, is a procedure that removes fat deposits. This procedure can be carried out on areas such as the hips, neck, arms, legs or tummy.
