Make a Plastic, Reconstructive, or Aesthetic Surgery Appointment
We offer plastic, reconstructive, and aesthetic surgery services at UPMC Aut Even Hospital in Kilkenny and UPMC Kildare Hospital in Kildare.
If your condition is medical in nature, ask your GP for a referral letter. You can make an appointment for cosmetic surgery directly.
Conditions We Treat with Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgery
Our consultants perform a variety of plastic and reconstructive surgeries and services. We help correct body changes that occur due to medical conditions or injuries. We also correct conditions that patients have been born with.
Our consultants treat diagnoses related to the:
Hands and wrists
We remove hand tumours and provide carpal tunnel release. We also offer Dupuytren's fasciectomy to repair this condition that limits hand movement.
We perform nasal surgery to treat nasal polyps (growths) and obstructions. Our consultants also treat issues involving the sinuses.
We remove skin lesions and birth marks. We also remove precancerous and cancerous moles and spots.
We relieve tenosynovitis. In this condition, inflamed tissue surrounding a tendon causes pain and makes movement difficult.
Specialised Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgery Services at UPMC
UPMC consultants provide expert plastic and reconstructive surgery services for many conditions. We offer specialised surgery to improve appearance, including:
- Blepharoplasty (eyelid lift surgery).
- Mammaplasty (breast augmentation surgery).
- Otoplasty (ear reshaping surgery).
- Rhinoplasty (nose reshaping surgery).
Cosmetic surgery can change your appearance. It can also prevent or repair damage due to certain conditions.
For example, our consultants perform surgery to reduce the weight and size of large breasts. Breast reduction can help prevent or reduce back problems.
We also provide non-invasive treatments to improve appearance. These include:
- Botulinum toxin (Botox) to weaken facial muscles and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. This temporary treatment also relaxes muscle spasms.
