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

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

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

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

Amazing results and experience - I had such a great experience with Dr. O'brien and staff. I had consultations with different plastic surgeons in the Tampa Bay area and Dr. O'brien was the best. My new Breast augmentation is so natural looking and perfect size for my body type. I 100% would do it again. More

Best choice I made! - After interviewing 4 possible plastic surgeons I decided to go with Dr. O'Brien. Best decision I made! This is not the kind of fancy doctor that tells you what you want to hear but rather a real doctor with lots of experience and wonderful skills.

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

I did fat grafting from my hips to my breasts (I was scared to do implants) he told me that the results were not guarenteed. I should have listened. A year later I went back and got implants and he was absolutely amazing at giving me the results I wanted. I highly recommend him and his staff!! You won't regret it!! More

Explanting St. Petersburg, FL - My first set is saline implants I had at 17 years old. I was modeling and was a perfect sample size and height but had NO boobs. 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. Thank you to the brave and encouraging women on this site who have shared their stories and pics. You have helped me make this decision. I can't wait to feel light me free :) More

I had breast augmentation in my twenties because I was very unevenly sized. The original implants were not stellar, but acceptable. After 30+ years they became very contracted, hard and uncomfortable. I had the old implants and scar tissue removed and replaced as well as some reconstructive work on my right breast. The results were excellent and my breasts look and feel better now than they did the first time. 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

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.
