"650cc smooth round HP Subglandular Silicone Augmentation Inframammary - 36 year old mom of two. 5ft 128lbsRecently lost over 30lbs and knew this was the right time in my life to go for it. .Finally decided to do more research and met with Dr. John O'Brien. He and his amazing staff are so incredibly wonderful. They did everything to make me feel comfortable and gave me exactly what I was looking for. The atmosphere is so welcoming and positive. Couldn't be more happier!! Also, have not lost any sensation in nipples. Was a huge worry of mine but instead they are more sensitive than before."- F. / RealSelf / Aug 05, 2020
"I went for a consultation at John J. O'Brien's office and had a wonderful experience! I am looking into getting a breast augmentation and just went for a consultation to get an idea of how it all works and what sizing best suits me. The whole entire staff was very comforting and friendly and John O'Brien himself was incredibly knowledgeable about what he does for surgery in all aspects of plastic surgery. He made my boyfriend and I feel very comfortable by explaining his background and answering all of my question I had about breast augmentation surgery. You can tell he does whats best for the patient father than for himself. He is a little price and that is the only thing holding me up from actually moving forward with the surgery but other than that, I highly recommend putting him at the top of your list when trying to decide which sergeant to go with!"- CS / Solutionreach / Jan 31, 2019
"Dr. O’Brien performed a brow lift, lower face and neck lift, upper and lower blepharoplasty, fat grafting, and abdominal liposuction. Six weeks later I am very pleased and looking great! Dr. O’Brien explains procedures well and demonstrates a caring attitude towards his patients. I would use Dr. O’Brien again and highly recommend him. The office staff exhibits the same caring and concern for the patients."- C.M. / Healthgrades / Sep 16, 2020
"Never had any issues only beautiful results that last - Dr. O'brien and Mary are amazing. I've been coming to Dr O'briens office since years and saw both Dr O'Brien and Mary for different treatments and never had any issues only beautiful results that last. I travel all the way from Brandon for my treatments. If you are looking for an excellent surgeon and someone you can fully trust do not think twice. Some surgeons are only about your money but not Dr. O'Brien. He really cares about his patients and is always real. I just had my halo laser with Mary that works at his office. I was so nervous because I asked for a deep treatment but Mary is so easy to work with. She is knowledgable and always there if you have a question. No matter if its botox or halo laser she is a perfectionist. I would never go anywhere else but to Dr. O'Briens office."- G. / RealSelf / Jan 05, 2023

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.

After your treatment, you may experience mild redness, swelling, and bruising but these symptoms are temporary and will subside in a few days.
