All of our surgeons are fully qualified in Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, and are on the specialist register of the Medical Council.
The term Cosmetic Surgeon is not a qualification used by the Medical Council or by The Royal College Of Surgeons. Unfortunately, there are a number of doctors using the term Cosmetic Surgeon without holding any surgical qualifications. These doctors may be entered on the General Register of the Medical Council (rather than Specialist Register).
The only recognized formal training for Cosmetic Surgery in Ireland and the UK, is the FRCS (Plast) as described above, and members of the public should check their plastic surgeon is suitably qualified.
