5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

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...

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...

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.

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...

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...

Amazing Boobs Thanks to Dr. O'Brien - Saint Petersburg, FL

My experience with Dr. O’Brien and his office has been more than excellent.

Finding a doctor that was a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon was the most important qualification as I started my quest for breast...

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.

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.
