What is a Facial Plastic Surgeon?

A Facial Plastic Surgeon does not perform plastic procedures below the neck. A particular strength of the subspecialty facial plastic surgery is that experts from different areas combine their skill and artistry to bring the best possible care, knowledge, and treatment to the patient. Given that it is extremely difficult to excel at all of the surgeries included in the repertoire of a General Cosmetic surgeon, a Facial Plastic Surgeon will usually perform only surgeries of the head and neck in order to perfect his/her abilities in this area. Deirdre is a member of the European Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery and Facial Plastic Surgery UK, and is a teacher at the London Facial Plastic Surgery Course and also the St George’s London Rhinoplasty Course.

IMC: 247513

Róisín Fitzgerald MB BCh BAO BMed Sc IMRCSI MICGP is a General Practitioner with a special interest in skin and advanced training in Medical Aesthetics. 
 
She works as a General Practitioner, as well as being founding Director of one of the North West’s best and busiest skin rejuvenation clinics – Ballsbridge Medical Aesthetic Clinic (now known as Fitzgerald Private Clinic Donegal). 
 
Róisín graduated from University College Dublin in 2005 with Honours Degrees in both Medicine and Medical Science. Following a year working and training in Emergency Medicine in Western Australia’s Royal Perth Hospital, Róisín was awarded a place on the two year Dublin Basic Surgical Training Scheme (BST). On completion of the BST, Róisín completed a four year General Practice Scheme in Ireland’s midlands, and settled in Letterkenny in the beautiful Co. Donegal in 2014. 
 
From her extensive training and experience she developed a keen interest in skin health. This led her into the world of Medical Aesthetics, where her training started in London’s Royal College of Physicians. She is at the forefront of new techniques and trends in medical aesthetics, and continues to develop her skillset through Harley Street training and international courses and seminars. Dr.Róisín offers the highest international standard of the most up to date and safe medical aesthetic treatments from her Donegal clinic. As a practicing GP, she has the experience and ability to combine her medical and cosmetic approach to skin care, and tailor a bespoke approach to the individual client. 
 
Medical Aesthetics have become a common interest for sisters Róisín and Deirdre, who both not only have vast medical and surgical experience, but also the artistic eye, hard-work ethic and love for ongoing study within this ever-evolving area. Both Róisín and Deirdre are two of the few Irish delegates invited  annually to Allergan’s London Masterclasses with the world renowned Plastic Surgeon Dr.Mauricio de Maio. 
 
In 2018 Dr. Róisín realised there was a need to meet with the increasing demand for non-surgical rhinoplasty, so she contacted the co-pioneer of the treatment itself Dr. Ash Labib in order to train under the master himself. It is part of the philosophy of Fitzgerald Private Clinic to ensure continuous learning from world leaders, so that each of our clients can receive world-class care. 
 
Dr. Róisín has presented at national and international conferences and continues her commitment to the provision of high quality bespoke and safe non-surgical aesthetic procedures and skin care.
