Frequently Asked Questions about Fitzwilliam Clinic.

Fitzwilliam Clinic is located at 70-72 Lisburn Road, Belfast BT9 6AF across two listed buildings on the Lisburn Road, directly facing the main entrance to the Belfast City Hospital amongst the leafy suburbs of South Belfast.  This prime location is easily accessible on all main bus, rail and road networks.

Fitzwilliam Clinic opens from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday.

Fitzwilliam Clinic has a private car park, allowing patients to leave after surgery, discreetly, into their vehicle right at the door.

Consultants set their own fees with the knowledge that the cost of the consultation should not be a barrier to treatment.  Our staff will be pleased to advise of costs when confirming your consultation appointment.  At present costs for Plastic Surgery Consultations are competitively priced at £190. For more information please contact us.

Each treatment plan is different as each person and procedure is bespoke and tailored specifically to you.   While we can offer starting prices, an accurate cost can only be derived following your thorough consultation with the Surgeon of your choice.  This cost will factor in your surgery, including the methods, equipment, anaesthesia, medicines and theatre time.  Costs also include aftercare including nurse and consultant reviews and dressings.

We will offer you a procedure price following your initial consultation. For your peace of mind, this covers all of your ‘at Clinic treatment’ costs, including aftercare and access to our 24 hour helpline which is maintained by our own clinical staff, so that you have complete confidence in our care through both surgery and recovery.

Always with your chosen consultant.  This way you establish a relationship with the expert and you will both understand each other’s expectations and agree on what is best for you and realistically achievable.  You will find details of the Consultant’s experience and qualifications on this website.

We understand that surgery is a significant decision and to ensure that you are offered time to fully appreciate and factor in the impact of surgery and recovery to your life, we offer theatre / treatment dates  between 3 weeks and 3 months depending on both the consultants availability and their demand.

No you can self-refer for most procedures – especially cosmetic procedures.
