Dr. Patrick Dedoncker

Why choose us?

In order to perform a cosmetic procedure you want to be in the hands of a doctor in whom you have 100% confidence. With us you have that security.

A plastic surgeon and a dermatologist both equipped with extensive experience.

Your plastic surgeon performs more than 1.500 large and medium operations per year.

Your operation is performed by a certified plastic surgeon who is a member of the Royal Belgian Society for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Only real plastic surgeons are members of this association.

You can recognize a plastic surgeon thanks to his INAMI number which is awarded by the state. The last three digits end with -210- this certifies that you are dealing with an officially recognized plastic surgeon.

If the last three digits do not end in -210- you will be in the hands of a doctor who is not qualified to perform aesthetic surgical interventions (thoracic, gynaecologic and dermatologic surgery). The INAMI number can easily be checked.

Your dermatologist is also a specialized and approved doctor. He stands guarantor for all operations, applying the latest techniques with the utmost professionalism. An aesthetic or cosmetic doctor, the profession of a beautician has no specialized medical degree.

A medical environment both safe and professional

Your operation is performed in a hospital environment that meets with the highest safety standards which are continually adapted to new developments laid down by the Minister of Public Health. This is in total contrast with private clinics for who this government control is not applicable.

Other services like cardiology, pneumology, emergency medicine and intensive care are available if needed.

Your hospital care is in the hands of a professionnel team of nurses and anaethetists who continue to follow training constantly.

Our operations are carried out in a very modern infrastructure, all of our operating theatres (16 in total) (see photo link) are equipped with high-tech apparatus in terms of anaesthesia, operation techniques and an anti-bacterial air flow.

Competitive prices

Our prices are competitive and correct and are remarkably lower than with most private clinics.

We can offer you these prices because of the number of operations carried out annually. In addition, thanks to subsidies in the state hospital sector we can apply less expensive rates for cosmetic procedures.

With us you will know in advance the exact price for your operation, so no unexpected invoices.

Latest news

We have the latest treatments and techniques. In addition each procedure has been proven effective scientifically and they have all been tested along strict safety guidelines.

We do not carry out costly treatments that have not proved their efficiency on the market.

Day hospital/outpatients

These days many operations take place in the day hospital/outpatients under local anaesthetic. Following the operation you are able to return home.

The treatment and after care staff

During our first meeting we take the time to answer all your questions. Together we try to find the treatment that suits your needs while still staying affordable. You will receive clear information about your operation so that you can organize yourself without any worries.

After the operation we give personalized care. Your plastic surgeon is reachable on his mobile in case you may have any questions.

We do everything to reassure you, before, during and after your surgical procedure.

Reimbursement of your operation in the case of special circumstances

In certain cases some operations are (partially) reimbursed. However, this is only possible if the operation takes place in a general hospital.

Your plastic surgeon will inform you of these specific conditions. The INAMI, your medical insurance or hospital/healthcare policy never reimburse you when an operation takes place in a private clinic because they do not have legal status in Belgium.

Our guarantee

In case of any eventual problems, we can foresee a correction free of charge within the first year. Luckily this is rarely necessary.
Implants are guaranteed for life and in the case of any rupture (brand A).
