5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

18 Years Old at the Time and Much Needed a Breast Reduction

I am so happy I decided to go with Dr. Hanson for my procedure, from being so young and obviously never had any surgery like this before I was so nervous and he made it seem that the after surgery was going to be so easy and he was right!! I was sore for about 3 days and around the 4th day I was up and out getting my nails done, driving, going for food, you name it!! I couldn't of gone with a better plastic surgeon and I would recommend him for anything!!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Wonderful experience. Wonderful results.

All of my adult life I have been extremely self conscious about the size and shape of my breasts. I began researching options for breast augmentation in the Dublin area. As it is such a big decision I quickly decided that I wanted to be treated and cared for by a plastic surgeon with the right qualifications and experience. You hear so many stories from women that are unhappy with the results...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty success

I had a rhinoplasty done with Richard Hanson last August, and my experience was great. My nose had been a cause of concern for me since I was a teenager. It was big on my face and it was sideways. I also had breathing and sinus problems because of the shape. The way it looked made me very self-conscious in my appearance and the structure caused me to have swelling of the face and difficulty...

I found Dr Hanson extremely professional, excellent attention to detail. I felt in safe hands and he listened to and heeded my personal concerns every step of the way. I was very nervous beginning my procedure journey and at every step he made me feel at ease. I cannot recommend Dr Hanson enough. I had little to no pain at all thanks to his attentive care and knowledge of my medical background...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Mastopexy & Breast Augmentation

Before I met Dr. Hanson I had met another plastic surgeon in the Hospital Group. My consultation with the Hospital Group lasted about 10 mins at which point I was asked "do you want the procedure? You can book with the secretary " I was plagued with phonecalls offering we discounts etc so needless to say I didn't go with then (for many more reasons including the above)!!! When I eventually met Dr. Hanson I felt completely at ease. His surgery was clinical and professional & he was very easy to talk to. Firstly i had a chat with him about the procedure i wanted & he clearly talked me through what was involved,what the healing process was like etc. He also took the time to answer all the questions i had. Next I was brought in to another room for an examination. Here he took various measurements & outlined what he would suggest the best procedure would be to achieve the results I wanted. I also tried on numerous breast implant sizes (with my.clothes on too) to see what the different sizes would look like on my frame. He also provided me with some advice on what would suit my frame & height which was great. Once my consultation was finished I was told to go away & think about everything & to contact the surgery if I decided I would like to go ahead with the procedure (nothing at all like the Hospital Group who were doing everything they could to get me to agree to the surgery!!). I subsequently decided to go ahead with the surgery. I made another appointment at his clinic & met him to go through everything again including selecting my implant size. Again he was so friendly and evetything was so professional. I decided on an implant size & booked my date for surgery (in about 2 months time). Subsequent to this meeting, I discussed implant sizes with my friends who had breast implants & decided I actually needed to go bigger than what I initially decided. So off I went again to his clinic to "try on" bigger implants. I finally decided I was going to go for the bigger size. He was welcoming & understanding with my decision to change & he also advised me on what he thought was best for me personally. My procedure was carried out in the Mater Private. I felt great that I was in a reputable hospital and the procedure was being carried out by a highy qualified,experienced professional. The operation went well & I stayed overnight at the hospital. Dr Hanson came to see me the following morning & performed a check up on me to ensure all was in order before I departed the hospital. On leaving I was given numerous dressings for my incisions ( along with instructions on how to clean my breasts) & relevant prescriptions for the pain & swelling. I was also given a careline I could ring 24 hours a day if there were any issues. 2 weeks post operation I was back in Dr Hanson ' clinic for a check up & to get smaller dressings. Again I paid him another visit a few weeks later at which point all bandages were removed & I was told how to care for my breats going forward. Any time I had a question I would email his secretary & I would always hear back from him directly or via his secretary. I have to say the experience was better than I could have ever imagined. I also have minimal scaring. I have to say, without hesitation, I would return to Dr Hanson for any future procedures. He really was a great surgeon.
