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. More

Sientra Opus Implants - 32A to 32DD/32DDD - 47 years old 121lbs - I wanted to share my story and experience with my breast augmentation in the hope it will help others make an informed decision about whether or not to go ahead with it. I was never a busty lady even when I was significantly overweight. Having lost about 45lbs over the years, my chest pretty much disappeared.... I actually waited a few years to make sure my weight remained stable and after 2.5 years, I decided to go ahead and get the surgery. I am very detail orientated, did a lot of research into different implant types etc. and decided to use Dr. John J. O'Brien here in St. Petersburg based on reviews, and website photos. I was very specific about the types of implants I wanted - Sientra gummy bear implants - and he was one of the only surgeons in the area that worked with this brand. I spoke with several surgeons but the other two were not a "hell yes" for me which was basically a "no". Words to live by - trust your own inner guidance. I will update my review in stages as I have a ton of photos. I am over a month post-op now.... back to business. I actually recovered very quickly - maybe between weeks 3 and 4? More to come! But this is what I started off at (see pics) More

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

I am so happy I chose Dr. O'Brien for the removal of my 11-year old breast implants and capsulectomy. He is honest and caring, and helped me feel at ease throughout the whole process. The results of my surgery are even better than I could have imagined. His staff is wonderful and having the procedure done at his in-house surgical center exceeded my expectations for comfort and personalized care. I'm so happy I went through with this surgery, something I contemplated for years, and that I chose Dr. O'Brien and his team. More

I got the whole kit and caboodle . Totally worth it! Had a complication blood clot after tubing was removed but the team took very good care of me. Literally had me coming into the office every day until clot was in healing mode. I had it done around Christmas time and have to say they treated me like family. I would definitely recommend and will be returning for more. More

Amazing Painless Experience and I Absolutely Love my Results. - The surgical experience at Dr. O'Brien's office was incredible. You recieve one on one concierge service from the moment you enter his surgical prep room, you attended to by the doctor and his nurses until your surgery is completed. I had a browlift, my upper lids done and a deep peel. It was completely painless and within a week I was out and about. At 60, most guess my age at 40. Dr. O'Brien has done 3 procedures for me in the past and I would not go anywhere else. More

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.Updated on 14 Aug 2020:Only a week and loving the results so much!Feel and look amazing. Stopped taking pain meds after a couple of days. Only feel heavy when getting out of bed. Definitely feels "safer" with my sports bras for now but can't wait till I don't need to wear one. Not Rock hard anymore but still very firm.Updated on 21 Aug 2020:Been a little over two weeks and feeling great.Right breast still gets a few sharp pains through it but quickly goes away. Had my second post-op appointment a few days ago, stitches out and my surgeon said they look and are doing amazing. Have not lost feeling and nipple sensation is actually more sensitive than before. I know a lot of people worry about that, I did. Softening a lot and getting squishy. Was told I can go bra shopping in a couple of weeks already yay!! So very curious to find my new size.Also, thought my piercings closed up completely but didn't. Just needed to be stretched. I love them more and more each day.Updated on 13 Sep 2020:It's been a little over a month which seems crazy long ago but sounds so short. Definitely a lot has happened since. My boobs are absolutely beautiful. They've already dropped fully and incisions are healing well. Left faster than right. Though, I did end up taking my rings back out due to being pregnant. I was so freaked out when I found out that I called my surgeon before my regular Dr ????They said everything will be fine. So, I wanted big breasts and though I was slightly staying to feel they weren't as big as I wanted they definitely are now. However after the baby is another story. Hopefully I will still be able to breastfeed. Unfortunately, the pregnancy has caused a few new stretch marks, needing to go get more oil. Anyway, here they are 5 and a half weeks later...Updated on 4 Feb 2021:Doing amazing even though I am almost 7 months pregnant. Scars are healing wonderfully.Still best decision I've ever made! Was sized a month ago again and squuzing into a 36G Was a little worried in wouldn't be able to breastfeed but already leaking so all good! Love my boobs! 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

Going for a More Refreshed Appearance: Facelift, Necklift, Browlift, and Dermabrasion - Dr. O’Brien is an excellent plastic surgeon. I met with him several times throughout the year before deciding on my surgery and found him to be very professional and passionate about his work. He is also quite realistic about what will and will not work for you. The surgical center and their staff are top notch. They were always available to address any concerns I may have had and were very caring on the pre and post op visits. I would highly recommend Dr. O’Brien and his staff to anyone considering plastic surgery. 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

Wonderful experience and results! - I was referred to Dr. O’Brien by my sister after she had a great experience with him and his staff for her breast augmentation procedure. From my very first breast augmentation consultation, through my procedure and follow-up visits Dr. O’Brien and his staff were wonderful. They took the time to answer my questions and explain to me the process and procedure. After the procedure Dr. O’Brien personally called me (on Friday night and Saturday) to check-in and make sure I was doing well. I am extremely happy with the results of my procedure and would highly recommend him! Thanks again Dr. O’Brien and the entire staff!! More

Best Plastic Surgeon in St.Petersburg - My fiance and I decided to give each other plastic surgery for Christmas instead of a trip this year. My fiance, who is extremely picky, is also a physician and already knew of Dr. O'Brien's quality of work. He had decided that he wanted to get a partial face lift. I had been to Dr. O'Brien before and had good results, so I decided to get breast augmentation. Dr. O'Brien was very accommodating on scheduling around our busy schedules and the holidays. We had our surgeries about a month apart, and are both healing well. I have heard many people say that the best Plastic Surgeons in the bay area can only be found in Tampa, or even further away... Miami. This is so NOT true, and the prices here are way more competitive than in those areas. If a physician (who has professional knowledge of others in this business) would choose this physician to work on himself, it says a LOT! It is sometimes difficult to find a doctor that you like as well as the office staff. EVERYONE at this office...from surgery coordinator (Kristen), post-surgical (Katie), as well as his entire office and OR staff... was friendly, caring, punctual, and professional. They all clearly love their jobs... and their boss. We are both very happy with our results! More

I had an amazing experience in my recent surgery - Recently, I had to have my 16-year-old implants replaced due to severe capsular contracture. I started having symptoms in 2017 and my 3D mammogram confirmed they had to be replaced. I did some research and found Dr. John J. O'Brien. I am so happy that I found him. After my initial consult, I set up the procedure. His staff was very friendly and helpful. The Doctor explained everything to me and was very kind to me. I was given thorough instructions for how to recover after the surgery and I had very little discomfort and was back to work in less than a week. The price was very reasonable and he maintains a very clean on-site surgical facility with a nurse and anesthesiologist. I felt very comfortable selecting him based on his experience and how well he treats his patients. I would strongly recommend him to anyone needing this procedure or any other procedure. More

Dermal fillers cheek and lip injections - Dr. O’Brien was wonderful. He listened to my concerns and resolved them. I went in for lip injections and cheek fillers to fix under eye bags/lines that extended into my cheek area. He was even helpful enough and saved me quite a bit of money from the original quote. About $500. He did such a good job filling my lips. He didn’t just fill them, he really shaped them out. I couldn’t be happier. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. More

55 Years Old and Time for Ta-tas!! - Saint Petersburg, FL - One month prior to my 55th birthday I underwent my first cosmetic surgery- breast augmentation. While this may seem to be an interesting choice during middle age I thought it is never too late! While I researched my options prior to meeting with Dr. O'Brien and his team, I truly appreciated the amount of time he spent with me discussing pros and cons and finding the right fit for me! During each subsequent appointment he is always patient and generous with his time. His team- Katie, Jennifer, Becky and Kristen are always gracious, helpful and kind! I have never waited more than one minute to be escorted to an exam room. Dr. O'Brien and his team were accessible from beginning to end and I always knew that I was in good hands! I am a physician and I truly appreciate his finely honed skills and his gentle bedside manner! I highly recommend Dr. O'Brien and his practice if you are considering breast augmentation- 4 months after my procedure I am thrilled with the results! More

I had a great experience with Dr. O'Brien and his team! Highly recommended! - I went to Dr. O'Brien with apprehension over having plastic surgery of any kind. I knew from my primary care physician that I needed a blepharoplasty. After consulting with Dr. O'Brien, I felt at ease and much better informed. I decided on a brow lift and mini-face lift along with the blepharoplasty. One year later and I am constantly being told how young I look. The result is very natural looking but dramatically different than before. More

He really knows how to shape a lip for a natural result. He is an artist! I'm always happy with my results. This was my second visit and won't be my last.

Best Plastic Surgeon in St.Petersburg - My fiance and I decided to give each other plastic surgery for Christmas instead of a trip this year. My fiance, who is extremely picky, is also a physician and already knew of Dr. O'Brien's quality of work. He had decided that he wanted to get a partial face lift. I had been to Dr. O'Brien before and had good results, so I decided to get breast augmentation. Dr. O'Brien was very accommodating... More

Going for a More Refreshed Appearance: Facelift, Necklift, Browlift, and Dermabrasion - Dr. O’Brien is an excellent plastic surgeon. I met with him several times throughout the year before deciding on my surgery and found him to be very professional and passionate about his work. He is also quite realistic about what will and will not work for you. The surgical center and their staff are top notch.

I knew from my primary care physician that I needed a blepharoplasty. After consulting with Dr. O'Brien, I felt at ease and much better informed.

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

Sagging Face and Spirits to Go with It - Saint Petersburg, FL - After having a lower facelift by a different doctor with none of the result I was promised, I went to Dr. O'Brien to see if fillers could be used to improve the 'parentheses' that still framed my mouth. Dr. O'Brien gave me all the options, and I decided to start with Radiesse for the nasolabial folds. Filling in this area has definitely helped distract from the sag in my lower face. I will still need other fillers, but at least now I don't look at myself and cry in disappointment. Now I just cry because I didn't go to Dr. O'Brien in the first place!! More

24 Year old breast augmentation - After doing my research and meeting a handful of different doctors who did breast augmentations in the St. Pete area I decided to go with Dr. O'Brien. He was incredibly professional and informative. I have a small frame and had very small breast to begin with. What I liked most about Dr. O'Brien was that he didn't just want to put oversized implants in me to give me big boobs. He wanted me to go with what fit my body most and would look most "natural". In the end I went with medium profile 330cc silicon breast implants and am so happy I did! For a girl who stands 5'3 and weights 115lbs they look proportional and natural. I love to keep people guessing if they are real or not! More

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.

In January of 2015 I had a mammogram that revealed a ruptured implant. I have had these since 1984 and they were the original implants. Dr. O'Brien removed them and did what they call a "lollypop" lift which is not a full lift. Absolutely no problem post op whatsoever and it feels great to have them out. I don't feel they were causing any health issues but were bigger than I had wanted and very firm. Finding clothes that fit was a problem also. Great to have natural feeling breasts even though they are slightly saggy. After having the implants in for that long I'm satisfied and happy with the results. More

I really did my research to find a life long plastic surgeon for skin maintenance and elective surgery. I have had many invasive and non invasive procedures over the last 15 years. Excellent, realistic results. Great office and nursing staff. I am very grateful to have found such a conscientious surgeon in my area. Highly recommend.Updated on 18 Oct 2019:I had the CO2 laser done twice in three years. The first time went really well. Second time went the same as the first time except, the results were scarring. He would never know during the healing process that I was going to scar like this. I have scars along my Jolle line and forehead they are in the perfect shape of squares from the laser head. It is now six years later I am 48 and have to cover these scars every day. They are not raised just hypo pigmented scars. The plastic surgeon said there was no solution for this problem except try to whiten/bleach the skin. I have been doing this the entire time and it has not changed. Heartbroken. More

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 post-op recovery I attribute to my fantastic doctor.

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!!

My parents paid for my implants and life went on. More work modeling but truthfully I wasn't tall enough or skinny enough to make a career out of it. Anyhow, it put a lot of pressure on me to look perfect and I did enjoy my new (balanced) figure. My first set were Mentor 220cc on top of the muscle. Looked very natural, however they needed to be replaced. At 28 yrs old I had my second BA with 350 cc Mentor saline textured implants. They came our beautiful and I was happy once again. I was still in the beauty industry as a makeup artist and looks were a huge part of my success and "image". So here at 40 my implants are uncomfortable, one is riding hight on my chest and the other is hanging lower, out of the pocket maybe? I just want to be me and be comfortable in bras, clothes and when I sleep. In the last 3 years I have gotten more uncomfortable by the day. I feel like they are hard balls sitting on my chest! I'm HOPING for a decent result. I had my son at 35 and breast feed him for 2 years so I'm hoping maybe I will have more tissue than I did at 17?! Dr. O'Brien will be doing my surgery. Explant and capsule removal. I don't think I need a lift and don't have the money for it even if I needed it haha. I'm going to give my body a chance to heal and pray to the fluff fairies.

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 great detail about the procedure, the recovery, what I should expect and I got to see the surgical room. On my second visit I brought my husband and he was also very happy and thought I should proceed. I am now 4 weeks post op and very happy with my results, I still have some swelling that needs to subside but I have no doubt that I am going to be thrilled with my decision. Not only is Dr O'Brien impressive his staff is so caring and thoughtful they really care about the patient. Katie was with me at every single appointment and made me so comfortable and held my hand when I needed. You all have truly got a client for life. Thank you so much!!! More

BA Revision from Saline to Silicone 425s for This Mud Runner :) - Saint Petersburg, FL - Well where do i start..four years ago at age 21 i had a BA and was told i ended up with 270ccs saline in both.. found out today after surgery that was WRONG and my medical card wasnt right.. im not going to name names but my first dr in California was terrible. From the get-go i noticed a difference in size in both breasts... So finally this time around in florida (recently moved here due to my husbands career) i met with 7 revisional doctors to make sure i found the one. The whole reason from my revisional was due to the fact that my left was tubular and my right i had noticed was started to bottom out and sag significantly! ! I didnt even want to take my top off around my husband anymore. After weeks of meeting with drs i finallt decided on the perfect surgeon :) dr John o brien in st pete fl .. hes been absolutely amazing from the start. He told me exactly what was going on with my breasts, why all these things occurred, helped me with sizing and placement suggestions etc. It really was an answer to prayer because everyone at his office has been heaven sent. I had my surgery this morning nov 4 at 8am.. it lasted a little longer then two hours because doc said he really cleaned them all out and they look great.Im so excited to see them hopefully tomorrow. Im resting comfortably with what feels like my husband sitting on my chest lol jk hes a wrestler so id imagine him sitting on me would feel like this haha..hes not but im just saying ;) im off to sleep.. ill be dreaming of running and lifting weights haha.Ill update with pics soon Updated on 9 Nov 2014:Well these past few days have been rough.. im really sensitive to pain meds so ive been trying to ween myself off which i am completely off meds.. just taking generic Tylenol as needed. As far as my girls go lol they r doing great my left is dropprd much faster then the right but im super sensitive to the touch. When i shower i kinda freak out lol but its getting better. I still have a littlw of a stretching type feeling in my chest since the doctor said my skin was super tight but all is well were actually headed to the grocery store. .ive been taking walks to get my blood circulating and thats helped my swelling go significantly down. Ill update with pics :) 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

30 Yr. Old Ruptured Implants Removed and Replaced - St. Petersburg, FL - I had a breast augmentation 30 yrs. ago. Both implants were ruptured. I consulted with Dr. O'Brien, who has done other procedures over the past five years, who gave me several options, I decided to replace the implants with the "gummy implants". Beautiful, couldn't be happier. I have used Dr. O'Brien for botox and fillers, he always does these himself, the reason I keep going back. He always offers many options and suggestions, but listens to what your ultimate needs are. More

Revision After 20+ Year Old Saline Rupture - St. Petersburg, FL - I shopped around a little when I needed a revision to replace a ruptured breast implant. Upon my first visit with Dr. O'Brien I could tell he was different. He really took his time and was very direct about what to look for in a plastic surgeon. I found that comforting. He made sure to explain to me about his staff and the team that takes care of patients during procedures. He told me that if he or his family needed to have surgery he would want this team. I got a full tour of the office and the operating room with an explanation of every step of the procedure that I was inquiring about. I knew I needed to look no further after meeting Dr. O'Brien!!! Everything was laid out very specifically for me for pre-op instructions and any questions I had were quickly answered with a phone call or an email. The day of the surgery couldn't have gone better. My recovery was easy and my results are amazing. I couldn't have imagined more perfect results to be honest. Dr. O'Brien seems to be a very gifted surgeon as far as I can tell. Thanks Dr. and staff for a great experience!!!! More

47 Years Old - Saint Petersburg, FL - Surgery is a scary concept, but with Dr. O’Brien's credentials, thoroughness, and professionalism as along with his GREAT staff; my fears were at eased and I was able to look forward to the results of my surgery, which are amazing! I did several years of research before choosing Dr. O’Brien and his staff and I made the right choice. Dr. O’Brien is thorough in his practice and his technique as I have minimal scarring from my tummy tuck. His center provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere. I felt as if I was the only patient he had for the day. The whole office is comforting, helpful and provides a relaxed environment. Even the after care, Dr O’Brien and staff have always been available and patient in answering my questions.I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. JOHN J. O’BRIEN of St. Petersburg, FL. He truly has your best interest at heart.I look forward to my next procedure with Dr. O’Brien.See you soon. More

45 Yr Old Lower and Upper Eye Lids - Saint Petersburg, FL - I was very self conscious with my lower lids. Dr. O'Brien suggested doing the upper lids as well and I'm very glad I did. The surgery lasted about 2 hours and I was Bruised for about a week. As the Months went on after surgery my eyes looked better and better. The scarring is very minimal and friends say they don't even seen them. More

26 Y/o with Wrinkles in Forhead - Saint Petersburg, FL - I had a pleasant experience with Dr. O'Brien. He listened to my concerns about my fine lines in the forehead and by my eyes and was very conservative with the treatment. They got me in right away and within about 30 minutes I was out of the office. Very nice staff and very informative on the things that they do. More

Dr. O'Brien removed a lipoma on my back next to the shoulder blade last year. He used local anesthesia only and it took about an hour for the surgery itself. The scar that I have is about 2 inches long and is fading more and more. I am pleased with the results and the cost with insurance. Overall I would definitely recommend him for lipoma removal. More

Due to my falling eyelids, 1 full mast down, other 3/4 mask down I was avoiding looking directly at self in mirror or others when conversing. Got tired of it & had a consultation with Dr. O'Brien.  So glad I did, I feel so much more comfortable with myself & others now that I see I do have eyelids!  More

Yes!! So Worth It. Why Did I Wait? - St Petersburg - I got my implants just over a year ago. My plastic surgeon (board certified) was absolutely wonderful. I had pain for one day and switched from pain pills to advil. I went from a very deflated, saggy 36A to a beautiful 36C. They look very natural and are proportionate to my overall size. I should've done this years ago. I am thrilled with the results. Oh, I guess my only regret would be that I should've gone just a little bigger -- just a little -- maybe to a full 36D.Updated on 19 Mar 2011:FYI - I got the silicon gel implants, and everything is still great after 2 years. I'm still very happy with the results. More
