Arm Lift

Staff Surgeon took actual intrest in me


Dr O'Toole and entire staff always friendly, informative and willing

Mommy Makeover

Dr. O'Toole exceeded my expectations in every area. He spent so much time with me and never made me feel rushed once. He asked me questions and I felt like you genuinely cared about giving me the best results possible. I loved that he was honest about what he would and wouldn't be able to do, and explained everything to me without ever talking down to me. I could tell he sincerely loves what he does and have never felt more confident about choosing him as my surgeon.

Arm Lift

Dr O'Tool is very knowledgable in his profession and his experience and expertisemake a miracle happen.I will defiantly recommend Dr O'Tool to my friendsAnd he is the only Doctor that I will return when I need.

Tummy Tuck

I was not told most of the side effects that happened to me after the surgery. The scar is significantly longer than I was told it would be. It's been months, and the scar is still rather painful. I was not told that would happen. I wasn't told about scar therapy until 2 months AFTER the surgery, and then it was only when I asked. I spent $70 on silicon, and have been using it every day for almost two months, and the scar has not improved at all. My new belly button looks horrible, not at all like any belly button I've ever seen, so I am still restricted from wearing a bikini. I wouldn't be comfortable anyway, as my butt has become incredibly loose and jiggly. I am experiencing horrible swelling on my stomach, and I look just as fat as I was before the surgery. The weird thing is, when I wake up in the morning, my stomach is almost flat. It's not until I eat something and start moving around that it puffs out. It's gross, and I am very uncomfortable, pretty much all the time. By the end of the day, I'm just as fat as I was before I spent $8000. If I had known that 1) the scar would be HUGE, 2) the scar would hurt and NOT fade, 3) my new belly button would look nothing like a real belly button, and 4) that my butt would get loose and jiggly, I never would have done this.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. O'toole and everyone in his office was both engaging and professional in every interaction that I had with them . The quality of work done on me was excellent . I had excess skin removed from my waist area that was left over after a significant weight loss . This procedure made my body shape normal looking . This was a big deal for someone that had been obese for most of my life .

Breast Reduction

The best plastic surgeon in the area, takes his own after hours calls & responds quickly. Beautiful and spotlessly clean facility. Best anesthesiologist ever.

Tummy Tuck

I was very comfortable with Dr. but felt that since I have been a patient for several years and have had several procedures, the cost for this procedure would have been less or I would have been given a discount. It just seems a little high for this procedure.

Injectable Fillers Other
