"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

Ideal Candidates for ThermiTight
ThermiTight is a great treatment option for men and women who wish to address loose skin on their neck and jowl area to achieve a slimmer and tighter-looking contour. This treatment is also an excellent alternative to invasive surgery as it requires little to no downtime. The best way to determine if ThermiTight is right for you is to undergo a private consultation with Dr. O'Brien at our office in St. Petersburg.
Procedure Technique for ThermiTight
A ThermiTight treatment can take between 30 minutes to one hour to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area. During treatment, a tiny probe is inserted under the skin which emits radiofrequency energy. ThermiTight is also equipped with the Thermal Image Guidance™ feature, which allows Dr. O’Brien optimal control of temperature to deliver energy to the ideal depth for beautiful results. This energy causes collagen molecules to contract, shrinking the loose tissues immediately. Results will also improve over time as more collagen is produced, restoring support to the structure of your skin. This means your loose and sagging skin will appear tighter and more youthful for a boost in confidence.
What to Expect from ThermiTight
Following a ThermiTight treatment, you may experience mild swelling and redness, which should resolve on its own. There is little downtime needed, with most patients able to return to everyday activities after 24 hours. ThermiTight results can last for several years, so you can enjoy your results long-term. If you have any questions regarding the ThermiTight treatment, do not hesitate to ask Dr. O’Brien. We want to ensure you are comfortable with every step of the treatment process.
