Treatment / Procedure

I love Dr. O'Toole and his entire staff. I have had several other elective procedures over the years, and will never go to another plastic surgeon, EVER!! He is simply the best!!

Breast Reduction

Dr. O'Toole did a great job stitching incisions. Small & tight stitches that healed fast & straight. He listened carefully to what I wanted and did exactly that. My hope bra (hope it fits bra) that I brought with me fits perfect. His explanations of what to expect after surgery was very accurate.

Neck Lift

It was pleasant, my questions and concerns were answered and I did not feel rushed.

Face Lift

He is honest and helps me make the right choice on what I want to get the best possible results for my goals to be the best me I can be.

Breast Reduction

Dr.O’Toole was very honest and really took his time with me and answered all of my questions. Although the practice doesn’t deal directly with insurance, the doctor is still preauthing the breast reduction for me as there is a possibility my insurance may pay for part of the surgery. This makes me extremely satisfied that I may get some reimbursement back.

Dr. O’toole and his staff are amazing . From beginning to end they made you feel comfortable . Dr. O’toole nice Dr. And I felt his honesty and what he recommended for me he was on point. Thank you staff and soon I shall see you .

Face Lift

The outcome and my happiness over my appearance is obviously the best thing, but I was completely satisfied with the whole process, from beginning to end. I know Dr. O'Toole is a busy doctor, but he sat with me answering any questions I had as if he had all the time in the world. And of course, the whole office is top-notch. I was really impressed with all of the extra precautions in light of Covid. . Dr. O'Toole is a truly gifted surgeon. I feel like he made me look 10 years younger, at the same time, I have none of the tell-tale signs of having a face lift.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. O'Toole and his nursing staff were all professional, very knowledgeable, helpful and supportive throughout my journey.

Tummy Tuck

I have been searching for many surgeons for a tummy tuck and such forth on my body and I really like the Pasadena cosmetic surgery because not only that the deposit is low but your payment options are excellent right now I am just waiting for some money to put down in a higher amount but I am highly satisfied.

Everyone was very nice and explained the procedure and recovery step by step. I never felt uncomfortable about calling and asking a question. Doctor knew exactly what I wanted out of my surgery.


I am a previously satisfied patient of Dr. O'Toole x2 surgeries. I was satisfied with my experience this time (a consultation) because Dr. O'Toole and his staff are always welcoming, kind and informative. Dr. O'Toole sits down and takes his time during the consultation. Always a good experience with Dr. O'Toole and his staff.

Neck Lift

The process ran smoothly and was thoughtfully explained. Everything occurred in a timely and punctual manner. The surgeon, his anesthesiologist, and his support staff were kind and professional. Although it may be an illusion, I do believe that I look better and that sentiment has picked up my spirits, even in this unsettling period of COVID-19 and social upheaval.
