Undergoing a cosmetic procedure such as liposuction, abdominoplasty, or body contouring surgery can improve your body image and boost your self-confidence. An experienced plastic surgeon with an artistic eye, Dr. Kevin O’Brien has the skills necessary to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.


Liposuction is a method of reducing targeted accumulations of fat in the body. While it is not a substitute for overall weight loss, liposuction is effective at removing stubborn pockets of fat that are not responding to a reasonable diet and exercise program. By improving the appearance of problem areas, liposuction can enhance your overall body contour and self image.

Abdominoplasty, also known as "tummy tuck," is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fatty tissue from the abdominal region and often tightens the abdominal wall. Abdominoplasty is not a substitute for overall weight loss, but works well for people who are of normal weight yet carry excess fat and skin in their abdominal area. Abdominoplasty is especially helpful for women who have stretched abdominal skin or lost muscle tone due to pregnancy. Often times abdominoplasty is combined with liposuction, and for some patients mini abdominoplasty alone may be all that is necessary for a nice result. Schedule an appointment to learn which option is best for you.

Body Contouring

Body contouring is the process of surgically improving the body’s problem areas using the latest advances in plastic surgery techniques and technologies. Significant weight loss can result in excess skin and tissue that does not conform properly to the body’s new frame. Body contouring procedures such as lower body lift, thigh lift, and upper arm lift (brachioplasty) can be performed to improve these areas of loose tissue. Patients may undergo body contouring surgery alone, or in conjunction with liposuction, to remove stubborn pockets of fat from the body.
