We love to show off our beautiful state-of-the-art facility in Wexford!

It’s one-stop shopping for all your aesthetic needs, because our office, surgical facility, and medispa are all housed in the same convenient location.

Our private plastic surgery office starts with a comfortable and beautiful reception area. Our consultation rooms are oversized for comfort and will accommodate relatives or friends who may accompany you. Each room is equipped with flat screen monitors & iPads to watch educational video about the surgery in which you are interested.
