"Excellent surgeon and a truly caring physician."- B.B. / Healthgrades / Feb 18, 2020
"I had a great experience with Dr. O'Brien. I had skin cancer on my ear and Dr. O'Brien performed surgery to remove it. The surgery was performed on the day that there was a mobile lab at his office and Dr. O was able to test tissue samples on the spot to ensure all the cancer was removed. Dr. O'Brien not only removed the cancer but did a fantastic job with the appearance of my ear such that one would never even notice any evidence of a surgical procedure. I look great and am cancer free. Many thanks to Dr. O'Brien and his terrific staff. Highly recommended for any type of procedure. Absolutely first class!"- B. / Google / Jan 07, 2020

Ideal Candidates for Bellafill
Bellafill is a great option for men and women who wish to diminish the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and skin irregularities, like acne scars. Bellafill is not recommended for individuals with a history of severe allergies or known allergy to lidocaine. At St. Petersburg Center for Plastic Surgery, we perform a thorough consultation prior to any treatment to determine if Bellafill is right for you.
Procedure Technique for Bellafill
Once a consultation has been conducted and a treatment plan has been created, we will schedule your Bellafill appointment. On the day of your appointment, you will be escorted to one of our private treatment rooms and seated comfortably in one of our luxurious MedSpa chairs. On average, Bellafill takes about 15 – 30 minutes to administer and once your session is complete, you will be free to return to your daily activities.
What to Expect from Bellafill
After your treatment, you may experience mild redness, swelling, and bruising but these symptoms are temporary and will subside in a few days. Many patients usually notice immediate results after their session, with optimal results being evident after any swelling goes down. Our aestheticians will review any questions or concerns you may have and can discuss when to visit for a follow-up.
