    Acrylic Filler Removal
    It took me 4 years to find someone who could competently remove acrylic filler from certain areas of my face. Niall knew every avenue I had been down to try and get this removed and saved me from having inappropriate treatment that would only make it worse. After the surgery some months later I attended my local Aesthetician who asked me if I was going to still have it removed. When I told her it already had been removed she was absolutely blown away as the incisions where so tiny and well done it was completely undetectable to her eyes. So am I happy ? YES ! over the moon and back !!!

    From the very first moment of contacting Mr Kirkpatrick's team i realised i was dealing with a team of competent and professional people. Although i had already decided to undergo the surgery there was never any pressure from Mr Kirkpatrick and his team to sign on the dotted line and all my questions and concerns were answered both compently and professionally. Before , during and after my procedure i felt confident that i was in the best possible hands and Mr Kirkpatrick truly understood what i was looking for in regards to my septorhinoplasty. 'Brilliant surgeon, wonderful bedside manner and great team', Thank you

    Niall is a brilliant surgeon who genuinely cares. I’ve felt safe at all times and Niall has been fantastic at coming back to me with any concerns or queries. He’s friendly, approachable and professional. I’m so relieved he was recommended to me. I highly recommend him as a surgeon you can trust and feel comfortable talking to about specific procedures pre and post surgery. It’s also reassuring when the medical staff say they are booking in with him too.

    I had a SMAS facelift and upper Blepharoplasty, both by Niall. Niall is friendly, and a total professional instilling confidence and trust for what is a serious personal journey. From the initial consultations to the final post op' check-ups every step was discussed in detail; from what I wanted to achieve, the techniques to be performed, my concerns and importantly the management of my expectations, the surgery day itself, through to the post recovery healing period. (One of the interesting bits, all part of the process, is where Niall draws lines on your face pre-surgery) ! The hi-lights however are the end results:- I am a woman of a certain age... With Niall's skills I look at least 10 years younger, more according to friends. Niall has managed to give me a more youthful appearance via my neck, face and eyes, creating a subtle yet at the same time a very definite improvement overall - amazing, I don't look tired or saggy anymore, but naturally refreshed looking without any obvious signs of surgery. I would highly recommend Niall to my friends and anybody who is considering plastic surgery.

    Mr Kirkpatrick answered all of my questions and was very patient with me as I must have asked the same ones over and over. He was very understanding of how nervous I was and really put me at ease. The choices he made (in terms of size of implant and shape) were perfect and produced exactly what I was after. I am glad I listened to him!

    Mr Kirkpatrick was fantastic. Very reassuring and clear in the treatment that was needed and why. The operation itself was done incredibly well with great results. The scarring is minimal and I really appreciate the extra care that was taken around this. His team is also very helpful and responsive. Overall a very positive experience.

    I had done my due diligence & Mr Kirkpatrick was highly recommended from various sources. I felt entirely comfortable with him from the first meeting. He was assertive, confident & was obviously highly knowledgeable. He was also empathetic. He didn't sell hard to me - he went through the pros & cons of any treatment & listened to me & addressed all my questions. I trusted him (& I don't give trust easily). The operation went as planned, with no surprises. I am entirely pleased with the outcome of the surgery. Mr Kirkpatrick has kept in contact with me post operation. We met again one week after the operation. We've communicated several times by e mail since then & are scheduled to meet in another 5 months or so. I have found him to be accessible whenever I wanted to ask any questions.
