Dr Maire Rhatigan,
MB, BCh, BAO, DCH, MRCOphth, FRCOphth

Dr Máire Rhatigan qualified in Medicine with an honours degree in surgery from University College Dublin. She is an experienced eye surgeon and spent 19 years working in the NHS laterly as a consultant Ophthalmologist. Dr Máire has many years experience in oculoplastic surgery following fellowship training in the UK and in Melbourne, Australia. She has extensive experience in cosmetic treatments, has performed thousands of Botox and Filler treatments and specialises in facelift using a top quality range of dermal fillers. She has worked full-time in aesthetics since 2005. She attends international conferences each year to build on her knowledge and to ensure that her patients receive the very best treatment using the highest quality products. 

"I am writing this as a long term regular client of Maire. I had my first botox with her around ten years ago and in the last couple of years I have also had fillers to my cheeks and lips. Maire knows exactly where and how much to inject and for the most amazing results. Nothing looks false or overly done. I always get compliments on how well I look and I cannot speak highly enough of every aspect of my treatment with her - from initial consultation to finished results. She has always given the best advice, care and treatment. No one believes I am a woman in her late forties everyone thinks I am in my late thirties. That might sound vain but the difference in my confidence levels and well-being is amazing. Little things like I love being able to  put on eye make-up without having to stretch my skin tight to get a straight line, no cracks round my lips for lipstick to smudge into and I only need minimal foundation. Just perfect"
