Both my sister and I got work done here and I must say They are brilliant! All the staff from when you enter with the first consultation to the last consultation. Anyone looking for work and is nervous I was the same, I have done a lot of research for a few years and I’m delighted I chose them! I got liposuction will be going back for a tummy tuck also.
Wonderful experience, I am delighted with my results! Dr Salman and the team are very professional, kind and helpful. I would definitely recommend, it was one of the best things I have done.

If you’re thinking of getting cosmetic surgery – whether it’s breast augmentation, a facelift, or a tummy tuck – you’ve probably thought about the option of travelling abroad to have the procedure done.
Many people living in Ireland travel abroad for cosmetic surgery, and we understand why. For most, it’s the idea of getting a holiday out of their surgery – and usually a lower price tag too. But, just like with most things, there are both advantages and disadvantages to cosmetic surgery abroad.
In this blog, we’re going to take a look at the differences between cosmetic surgery abroad and surgery in Ireland, and hopefully help shed some light on what the best choice is for you.
In Ireland, all of our private hospitals and clinics are carefully regulated to meet a high level of health care standards. They’re inspected regularly to maintain this high standard of care.
There isn’t a guarantee the sterilisation standards will be as good in clinics abroad. Always ask what regulations and standards the clinic has before you decide on choosing one abroad. You can also check the infection rates and see what back-up services are available if something was to go wrong during your operation. Remember infections can happen up to 6 weeks after surgery.
Different countries have different qualifications and expectations for cosmetic surgeons.
Make sure your surgeon is fully qualified and experienced in the procedure you’re looking to have performed.
No procedure, cosmetic or otherwise, is free from risks. Unexpected complications can occur with your surgery, whether your surgery takes place in Ireland or abroad.
However, if you decide to have your surgery in Ireland your consultant surgeon will be able to provide you with the necessary aftercare to help you make a full recovery. You can visit your surgeon and correct procedures undertaken immediately if necessary.
If something goes wrong, whether there is a complication with the surgery or the outcome is unfavourable, then your surgeon will be able to discuss it with you and figure out how the problem can be solved.
When travelling abroad for your cosmetic surgery, you might not have the same reassurance as you would in Ireland. Some of the clinics overseas might not be able to provide you with a referred specialist back in Ireland if things go wrong with your surgery. If you end up needing long-term care after your surgery, it’ll be incredibly difficult if your surgery was abroad.
If you have any complications after your surgery outside Ireland, you unfortunately end up in a public hospital A&E if there are complications, and you may have to spend much more money privately to fix a problem. The outcome of surgery is always better when it is done right the first time.
So, if the problem does arrive it will be your GP that you’ll have to turn to. You could also spend extra money for private health care or flights back over to where you got the surgery.
Cosmetic surgery might be cheaper abroad, but you do need to take into consideration that if you have to fly back over you’ll need to take time off work and pay for more accommodation and flights.
Flying post-surgery carries its own risks that need to be considered – air travel and major surgery are known to increase the risk of developing deep vein thrombosis or a pulmonary embolism. Flying before or after an operation combines these risks making it dangerous to travel long distances.
Some of the best countries for cosmetic surgery are Ireland, Brazil, Japan, Italy, and Mexico. They’re among the top international destinations of choice when it comes to cosmetic surgery.
Some hospitals abroad use the same equipment and instruments as most of the advanced hospitals here in Ireland. The doctors are skilled professionals and are often excellent at their job.
So why is the price for surgery so much cheaper?
There are many reasons that enable clinics abroad to charge less than Irish clinics:
However, just because something is cheaper doesn’t mean it is necessarily better. If something seems too good to be true, it often is.
