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. More

I am no stranger to plastic surgery, and have had several procedures done on my body over many years, both invasive and non-invasive (breast reduction, augmentation, liposuction, botox, coolsculpting, etc.), but I was afraid to do anything to my face. I'd had an accident in my 20s that left one eyebrow much lower than the other, and my eyelids both looked heavy, prompting people to ask me all the time if I was tired. I started looking into what I could do to improve the tired appearance and level out my eyebrows in November 2018. I met with Dr. O'Brien as part of that, and he made several suggestions about what I could do, such as a brow lift and upper blepharoplasty, but he also did not pressure me to do anything. In addition, I asked about ultherapy, another non-invasive treatment. Dr. O explained that I was not a candidate for the treatment because I have a pacemaker, and he would not even consider it (which I respect and appreciate). So I stuck with Botox for the time. I did look into a few other local surgeons in St. Pete. I was frustrated that their websites lacked information about the most modern ways to perform the procedures, and when I tried to reach out to some of them, I either could not get through, didn't get a response, or if I did get a response, it was like I was an inconvenience. It was no question that I was going back to talk to Dr. O'Brien. My husband had been very against my doing anything to my face, and when I told him I was considering the brow lift and blepharoplasty suggested by Dr. O'Brien, he agreed to at least come with me to the 2nd consult (mostly to try to talk me out of it). Once we got there, Dr. O explained the entire process to both of us, and answered all the questions my husband had. One of our concerns was that I would look overdone or have that "duck face" look. Dr O'Brien explained how I would really look like myself, just more awake with better symmetry, and that is exactly what happened. I had a brow lift and upper blepharoplasty in his beautiful and comfortable surgical center in St Pete. I had laser resurfacing at the same time, and my skin looks beautiful. The follow-up care with Dr. O'Brien and his staff was spectacular. They are all so friendly and welcoming, and they entire staff works together to make sure I can maintain my results. I strongly recommend Dr. O'Brien to anyone who is considering a plastic surgery procedure. More

CoolSculpting Resulting In Revision Tummy Tuck SurgeryIt has been two years since my Coolsculpting revision process began with Dr. O'Brien. I want to thank the Dr. and his staff for the professionalism, support, and love I felt during this process. It was the little things they did that made me think that they cared about me as a person and not as just a patient. The Tummy Tuck and later Liposuction I received from Dr. O'Brien was the result of two Coolsculpting procedures, which caused me to have a condition known as adipose hyperplasia. This happens when, instead of your fat-melting it grows. Mine was an advanced case where you could see the large blocks of fat in the shape of the Coolsculpting paddles on my stomach, flanks, and thighs. I could cross my arms and lay them across the block of fat sticking out of my stomach.I found Dr. O'Brien after the first doctor who did the Coolscuplting told me that he couldn't help me; don't contact him again, and oh, by the way, you now need More

You need a Tummy Tuck. The physical effect was visible, but what I didn't count on was the mental impact this would have on me. This was scary and depressing. If I wanted a Tummy Tuck and Lipo, I would have done it in the first place. Now I had to find a Dr. I could trust to do the Tummy Tuck. What made the revision process manageable was Dr. O'Brien. If you are someone who needs a doctor and his team to help you through a Plastic Surgical revision, you want to have Dr. O'Brien do your surgery. I can't image another doctor holding my hand for two years while we work through this process, but that is precisely what he did. As a patient, you want a doctor that will give you the information you need to hear and not what you want to hear, and it was hard for me sometimes slow down and listen, but again, the best thing I did was trust Dr. O'Brien, and I suggest you do the same. If you are someone who had an adverse effect from CoolScuplting or you are choosing an elective Plastic Surgery, in my opinion, Dr. O'Brien, the best person to do the job. More

Dr. O'Brien, his entire staff, his knowledge, his expertise and professionalism is top-notch. I was a little apprehensive about having cosmetic surgery, however, from the very first moment I walked into the office, I was comfortable and relaxed. I knew exactly what to expect before, during and after my procedures. His office performs a number of cosmetic/plastic surgeries, along with injections, facials and more. Trust Dr. O'Brien if you are thinking about any kind of beautification procedures, procedures for corrections,....or if you just want to find out what he can do to enhance your natural beauty! More

Big huge THANK YOU - Dr O'Brien, his amazing office staff, and team of nurses are top notch. From my very first phone call, I felt an immediate connection. I deeply appreciate Dr. O'Brien's expertise and honesty. My procedure was a tummy tuck with Lipo. To say I was nervous about the procedure was an understatement as I dont tolerate pain well. I had my surgery and Im still surprised about the ease of my recovery!... More

One month out of a belt lipectomy/lower body lift/360. Still recovering, but can definitively say that I made the right choice in surgeons. Dr. O'Brien is attentive, straightforward and sets realistic expectations. His staff is absolutely wonderful! Kristen, Jennifer, Becky, Stacia and ESPECIALLY Katie are amazing.

Much Needed Breast Reduction and Tummy Tuck - Saint Petersburg, FL - If you expect the BEST, then your search is over! I had been contemplating getting a breast reduction for a number of years, my bra size was 36 J (try finding bra that size!) and a tummy tuck, but ultimately kept putting the surgery on the back burner. Even though I was unhappy with the appearance of my breasts and abdomen (after having two children), I didn't want to take 'the easy way out'... More

Hot Mama turning 50 needed Mommy Makover - Dr. O'Brien and his staff were so patient with me during my decision making. I met several times to ensure I was ready and selected the best procedure. The procedure was done in his state-of-the art facility and EVERYONE on his staff was truly caring, professional and had amazing follow up. Dr. O'Brien's technique is by far some of the best work I have seen. More

32 Year with Muscle Separation and Loose Skin After Two Kids - Saint Petersburg, FL - After having two kids in my 20's I was left with some loose skin. I was working out, eating right, got a trainer but nothing was changing. I had gone to other plastic surgeons and never felt comfortable enough to take the next step. During my first encounter with Dr O'Brien I knew he was different, for one he was asking about me, my lifestyle to ensure this is what I wanted. He went into... More

Body Lift 2015, 45 Year Old Male - Saint Petersburg, FL - I recently just passed my six week mark post op from a lower body lift, and chest lipo. This was a big step for me, first time for any surgery! Just a little history, I had lost over 110 pounds, from weighing 305 lbs to 195 lbs on the day of surgery. I had been exercising, running, eating right but could not lose that extra skin, I had hit 14% body fat. I met with Dr. John O'Brien, Jr. in... More
