Thigh Lift

I'm highly satisfied with the information and the care provided. I only wish I would have been told more of what to expect post surgery; in terms of results and recovering, and I know each case is different; but perhaps what to expect during immediate and long-term recovery.

Breast Reduction

The Dr and staff listen well and are specific with answers. From the first day post-op I have had improvement in posture and breathing. Nerve pain in abdominal area and digestión has improved. Post-op shoulder surgery has finally healed and I can lift my left arm above my head for the first time in 12 months.

Breast Lift

I am super impressed by Dr. O'Toole and everyone at his office. I cannot stress enough how impressed I was at how I was treated from the initial appointment and through to surgery and post surgery. The surgery suite made me feel at ease – the warmth of it and the modern equipment. The nurses and anesthesiologist were very nice. I am super happy with results of my breast lift so far I know I have time yet to to still heal and adjust but the doctor has been kind to me and I cannot believe I did not need pain meds! He was right! Dr. O'Toole and I discussed my goals and my wants and needs were realistic in terms of what kind of results could be achieved. His advice was spot on! My husband was also super impressed by how well I am healing. I am still a little tender on parts of breast but overall I feel pretty ok as it has been 3 months since surgery! Thank you to everyone at Pasadena Cosmetic Surgery in Pasadena, CA for my new found confidence and happiness! I feel better about myself and I have more confidence and my clothes fit better. I feel more youthful.


Very friendly and professional

Mommy Makeover

I had a mommy makeover. Dr. O’Toole and staff changed my life! I had multiple abdominal scars that were very unsightly and crooked. I also had mounds and mounds of scar tissue from them. My breasts were somewhat deflated and too small for my body type and frame. Dr. O’Toole looked at my body, and after listening to my concerns, made knowledgeable suggestions without being overbearing. He did not try to sell me something I didn’t need. My husband & I agreed with Dr. O’Toole’s suggestions & we couldn’t be more pleased with the results! I had multiple visits before and after and I am so elated that we chose this Dr. And staff. As I mentioned previously....They’ve changed my life.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. O'Toole was very informative and I feel that I was given all of the information I could have ever needed to feel comfortable and know exactly what I was getting myself into. The staff was amazing and they made me feel very comfortable and confident with the decisions I was making as well as with any questions that I had.
