Amazing Mommy Makeover - I did my research and visited many plastic surgery doctors in Clearwater and Dr. John O’Brien was my favorite. And did a mommy make over, tummy tuck, breast augmentation and Lipo with Dr. O’Brien and he did an AMAZING job. I Love it!!!! He is really nice, caring and very talented. The staff were amazing Anna and Mary. When I went for surgery that day all the medical staff were very kind and I felt really taken care of. More

It 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 one of the most invasive elective surgery to fix it. 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

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! I have thoroughly enjoyed every post opt visit. I cant stay out of the mirror and I receive so many compliments daily. My life has changed as a result of this procedure. My confidence and my determination to continue making healthy choices was increased by this process. BIG huge and heartfelt THANK YOU to such a great team!! More

Amazing Tummy Tuck & Lip Experience, Life Changing - Finally made a decision for Tummy tuck & VASERlipo after 30 years of being unhappy. Major weight loss and two vertical c-sections I was very self conscious of my tummy. My loose skin would hang doing planks & muscles weren't attached. This surgery has been life changing. Recovery little harder than expected, but at 12 weeks I am back at the gym, still a little swelling. Very pleased... More

Dreams to come true!! - One of the most amazing things I could have ever done. Dr O'Brien was amazing! I lost a little over a hundred pounds and did a full belt lipectomy. The entire process was excellent, from pre to post op, every staff member, including Dr. O'Brien was so helpful in explaining the procedure, listening and answering all my questions. The recovery was not bad at all, after a few weeks I was back to walking on the treadmill, six weeks back to jogging. If you are looking for a caring and top notch surgeon I would definitely use Dr. O'Brien in St. Petersburg, FL. More

Highly Recommended! - I am very pleased with my results, no more fat tummy! Dr. O'Brien and his staff are amazing. Katie is irreplaceable. Both were readily available to help with my needs after business hours and on a Sunday during a holiday weekend. I had a difficult time during my recovery but Katie helped ease my worries, and Dr. O'Brien ensured I was taken care of. My stomach has never been so tight More

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' and resort to surgery. For more than three years I hit the gym...hard. Yes, my appearance did improve, but ultimately, there is only so much that diet and exercise can achieve. From consultation to post op care, Dr. O’Brien and his staff (Katie, Jennifer, Kristin) are there 24/7. November 10, 2015 was my surgery and I seriously can't believe how great I look!! This operation has without a doubt boosted my self-esteem immensely! If you are considering any cosmetic procedure I would highly recommend Dr. O’Brien as his attention to detail is incredible! Thank you Dr. O’Brien and the entire staff, you have given me a gift no one else could! More

51 Year Old Female with 2 Children Ages 25 and 23. Saint Petersburg, FL - I would definitely recommend this procedure for anyone who is wanting to loose body fat, but also who follows a healthy diet and exercises. I did choose to be put to sleep for procedure, but not under general anesthesia. I woke up without any pain at all just slight tenderness. I was prescribed pain meds which were never used. I just used ibuprophen to take discomfort away. Part of my painless... 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

Dr. O'Brien is a True Artist! - St Petersburg, FL - I severely needed a facelift due to sun exposure & aging. However, I looked at least 10 years older than I was. I had a full facelift, brow lift, neck. The whole works. When I saw the results, I was amazed! He performed a miracle. I call him "Miracle Man." This year I went for an arm lift which I severely needed due to losing 80 lbs. over 12 years ago. My arms look like a young girl!In case you can't tell, I adore Dr. O'Brien & his staff is amazing. Don't hesitate to go see him! You will be as happy as I am! :) More
