"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
"23 year old saline implants - Better than expected - I had searched for years in considering changing out my 23 year old saline implants that I had no problems with except some minor distortion on one side and a desire to have them closer. I was told by everyone it couldn’t be done. I stumbled across Dr OBrien by chance because I was interested in sientra implants and no many used them. I met him and loved that I did not long for any information. He told be 500 more things that I wouldn’t have thought to ask but was glad I knew. He made no promises but was willing to try to help me achieve my goals. Upon first seeing myself without the wrap, both of my problems were resolved and they were so much closer. Not knowing a single person who went to him, I made the best decision to trust him. He was hands on through the whole process. From my consultation, when he came to get me out of the waiting room to the day of surgery when he helped me get up on the OR table and helped position me himself. Wow!!! What doctor does that. I loved the stitch technique he chose that makes the scar look better too. I am very pleased and very thankful for great results."- L. / RealSelf / Sep 15, 2023
Ideal Candidates for ThermiVa
The best candidates for ThermiVa are women with light to moderate vaginal laxity. It's also a great solution for those unsure about having more kids and who wish to prevent the recovery that accompanies a surgery. In order to be considered for ThermiVa, you should probably be at least three months post-partum from your most recent childbirth, be finished having children, have a drop in sexual pleasure, and also have loose outer or inner vaginal tissue.
Procedure Technique for ThermiVa
Completed by Dr. O'Brien as an outpatient procedure, ThermiVa can be finalized in three 15 – 30 minute sessions. The treatment sessions may also have to be spaced a minimum of one month apart. For the actual treatment, the ThermiVa wand is placed just above the outside region of the vagina and inserted into the inner vagina. The handpiece has an integrated thermometer to monitor the temperature to maintain the safety of your vaginal tissue. After the therapy, patients must avoid intercourse for no less than a day but may continue their regular activities.
What to Expect from ThermiVa
Women that choose ThermiVa should expect to find results about three weeks after their final session. Though follow-up sessions could be required, effects may last around two years. The outcome will be altered if the patient gets pregnant or gives birth vaginally after the procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions for ThermiVa
How much does ThermiVa cost?
The expense of ThermiVa may differ from patient to patient based on the number of therapy sessions needed to achieve their goals. After your personalized treatment plan is made, we'll go over the exact cost of your ThermiVa procedure. We'll also address any questions you have concerning your out-of-pocket expenses.
What's the distinction between ThermiVa and labiaplasty?
ThermiVa is more fitting for females who are not sure about whether or not they will have more kids as it's not as costly, faster, and doesn't require a healing time. Even though ThermiVa is a valuable treatment choice for females who have mild vaginal laxity, it might not be the very best choice for women with acute laxity. A labiaplasty is the surgical removal of the extra skin around the vaginal region and might be better for women with major vaginal skin laxity.
How many ThermiVa sessions will I need?
For great effects, three scheduled ThermiVa sessions spaced approximately one month apart is suggested. After the three primary sessions, yearly touch ups might be required to maintain effects. Furthermore, the natural aging process, major weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and childbirth may impact effects.
What conditions are treated with ThermiVa?
By producing a tighter genital region, ThermiVa may also treat many additional issues that may have been caused by aging and other aspects. ThermiVa was made to strengthen vaginal laxity in addition to vulvar or labial laxity to firm up the labial skin and decrease any sagging. Additionally, it may reduce dryness and incontinence to minimize any accidents, leakage, or urge symptoms. Furthermore, ThermiVa can address orgasmic difficulties or sexual dysfunction by helping to enhance sensitivity and improve your capacity to reach orgasm.
How does ThermiVa work?
ThermiVa utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy to warm up the internal layers of your skin from within your body. Utilizing the controlled and closely monitored delivery of radiofrequency energy directly where it's needed most enables the cells to be tightened under the epidermis. With radiofrequency energy, there's not as much pain for the individual and exceptional results are attained.
Restore and Revive
With the help of ThermiVa, you no longer need to suffer from loose vaginal tissues or operational issues. There's no downtime required, unlike with surgical procedures for vaginal tightening. Enjoy more confidence following your ThermiVa appointment when your vagina and/or labia gets tighter.
