The medispa is a concept that originated in the USA. It is a hybrid between a medical clinic and a day spa, run under the supervision of a highly trained and specialised doctor, in this case Ms Fitzgerald, who is a consultant plastic, reconstructive & aesthetic surgeon.
All treatments are performed by Ms Fitzgerald, or by our laser/ aesthetic nurse, Ger Kelly depending on the treatment involved, and your preference.
Why choose the Medispa at Fitzgerald Plastic Surgery?
Our training and expertise
We have a unique skill-set, that will ensure the full spectrum of treatments for your concerns can be considered and offered. Everything from non-prescription topical skincare, non-surgical options like injectable treatments and lasers, minimally-invasive surgical procedures, and comprehensive surgical treatments such as eyelid lifts (blepharoplasty) and facelifts, can be discussed with you by a consultant who is fully trained and in a position to offer these procedures to you, if suitable.
Our laser experience
No other consultant in the country has completed the level of fellowship training in medical lasers that Ms Fitzgerald has done. In a country where literally anyone can purchase and use a medical grade laser, the skill and training of the operator of that laser is pivotal to achieving safe and effective results. Ger Kelly, our aesthetic nurse, has extensive and comprehensive training and experience in medical lasers.

Consultations & fee structure
A consultation fee is payable by all clients on their first appointment. We will always endeavour, at the time of booking, to establish whether an appointment with the nurse or consultant plastic surgeon, is more appropriate in your particular case.
For appointments with the aesthetic nurse, the consultation fee may be offset in full against treatments or products purchased. Should the nurse feel that you require review by Ms Fitzgerald, such a consultation can be arranged for you, and the fee paid for consultation with the nurse may be offset in full against Ms Fitzgerald’s consultation fee.
Depending on the treatment recommended by Ms Fitzgerald, it may be possible to offset part of the consultation fee against your proposed treatment. We will clearly explain all fees and charges to you.
