5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Painful Due to General Anesthesia, but Worth It - Westport, CT

Dr. O'Connell is board certified, very skilled, and honest with what he can and can't do.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Upper Eyelid Surgery - Westport, CT

Being in the medical field I would highly recommend Dr. O. 7 years ago I first meet him. At that time I also meet with other plastic surgeons for consultations. Dr. O was the surgeon I selected for all my surgical procedures and never more happier.

Eyelid Surgery Got Rid of Dark Circles and I Feel Pretty Again! - Westport, CT

Dr. O'Connell is extremely skilled and experienced, and has written numerous papers on different eye and facial procedures. He listened to my concerns and made recommendations that were in line with my needs and priorities. He gives his honest opinion but doesn't try to "sell" you on anything. I would feel comfortable going to him for just about any procedure, and would highly recommend him as well.

5 out of 5 stars Chin Liposuction

Neck/chin Liposuction - Westport, CT

I had seen several plastic surgeons for consultations before deciding on Dr. O'Connell. I actually moved to New York but chose to return to Connecticut so that he could perform my surgery. The entire staff is incredibly friendly and patient. My nurse, Leslie, was absolutely amazing. I was really nervous going into the procedure and as soon as I saw her, I instantly felt more confident and comfortable. I feel that Dr. O'Connell is very knowledgable and has a lot of integrity. He was very quick to say what he was and wasn't comfortable doing, rather than accepting my money and compromising my health or appearance. I also feel like he gave me realistic expectations and met them. I will definitely return to Dr. O'Connell for any future procedures.

Dr. O'Connell Changed my Life, Best Decision Ever to This Day - Westport, CT

Dr. O'Connell helped me achieve my personal goals of cosmetic surgery. He was patient, knowledgeable, understood my concerns, gave me time to make an informed decision.

We set realistic expectations, and the result still looks great 4 years later. I...

My facelift story, including my experience under the knife

Dr. O'Connell performed my surgery on June 11th and I've been amazed at the ease of recovery! I had very little post-surgical discomfort other than the feelings of stretching and tenderness but nothing that even approached significant pain. It is now 22 days after my surgery and the improvement in my appearance, even at this point, is dramatic. One of the most marked changes is in my eyes. Before surgery, the upper lids drooped so badly that they were partially obscuring my vision. Dr. O'Connell has restored the eyes I had 20 or more years ago, along with the firm neck and jawline that I'd missed so much. I can't praise Dr. O'Connell highly enough. He and his entire team (including his lovely nurse/assistant and wife Leslie) make you feel that they genuinely care about you as a person and as a patient. They consistently exceeded my expectations in terms of the care they provided and the results I've experienced. If I decide to have additional procedures in the future, I will return to Dr. O'Connell without hesitation and will recommend him to all of my friends who may be considering surgery. He's just the best!

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Recovery Phase, - Westport, CT

I wanted to update my review post op because I am truly astounded at the ease of my recovery and so happy with my outcome. Further, I am more and more impressed with the artistry and skills of Dr. O'Connell as my healing continues. I have had virtually none of the pain and issues that other people have described. Although I realize that some of this is dependent on my own health, I also have to attribute this to Dr. O'Connell's approach to handling the surgery itself. He said himself, he is very gentle. In addition, I know that he takes whatever time is necessary to create the optimum outcome for his patients. There is no doubt that this is an anxiety producing procedure; it is after all our face! So, in that regard, I would not hand my face over to anyone else. I also have to say that I've had both required and elective procedure's done by him. Each time he was forthright and assisted me in managing my expectations about the outcome. He allowed me as the patient take the lead on what I wanted to accomplish yet was open to suggesting options and providing his medical opinion. There's no high pressure sales here. His priority is always is on the best outcome for the most natural look and for that he has an artistic eye. It was always my feeling that my surgery was a team effort between myself, Dr. O'Connell and his staff. That alone took this experience to a new level of trust. It was helpful through each phase of the process, once my decision was made to have a facelift, to know that everyone was readily available to me for pre and post op for questions and concerns or to see Dr. O'Connell if necessary. Picking a PS wisely is so critical for one's outcome and experience. I am so pleased with my results and my recovery that I would highly recommend Dr. O'Connell if you are considering plastic surgery.
