Your consultation fee is payable at the time of your appointment. We accept credit/ debit cards and cash. Personal cheques are not accepted. The applicable fee will be advised to you at the time of booking.
We do not offer free consultations for cosmetic procedures: to do so is contrary to Medical Council guidelines. However, in line with best practice, patients attending for consultation regarding a cosmetic procedure will always be offered a second consultation free of charge to give you time to think things over and clarify further questions you may have.
Depending on your health insurance policy, you may be able to claim back some or all of your consultation fee from your insurer. In all cases, your fee is payable directly at the time of your consultation and you will need to make a claim to your insurer, using the receipt we will provide to you, to recoup your costs.
We do not publish a procedure guide price. We acknowledge that price is a critical factor for most patients but it is more important that you research your prospective surgeons and find the right surgeon who will provide you with the correct advice and treatment. Of course we understand that you may wish to have a rough idea about pricing prior to booking a consultation and we are happy to provide you with a guide price for a specific procedure on request via our contact me page. Following your consultation, you will be made aware of the exact cost of the proposed procedure, including surgeon, hospital, and anaesthetist fees prior to confirming that you wish to proceed. The majority of aesthetic procedures are not covered by health insurance, and your insurance company will not cover any part of the fee (including hospital fees). We do not offer payment plans.
For procedures considered purely cosmetic in nature, and for treatments performed by the aesthetic nurse, VAT is payable at 13.5%.
Where procedures are covered by medical insurance, we make every effort to issue your account in a manner acceptable to your insurance company. We are registered with VHI, LAYA, Irish Life/ Aviva, GloHealth, Prison Officers, Garda and ESB insurers. Please bear in mind that most aesthetic procedures are not covered by health insurance.
