Official Spokesperson - The American Society of Plastic Surgeons
In facial rejuvenation we strive for a rested, natural, harmonious, non-surgical look and ancillary procedures such as Botox®, injectible fillers, laser resurfacing and skin care are carefully integrated into a rejuvenation plan that is custom designed for each patient. Breast augmentation patients are encouraged to “try-on” implants for size and Dr. O’Connell believes that the aesthetics of breast shape is equally important to the aesthetics of breast size. In body contouring we strive to recommend the simplest, least invasive procedure that can achieve your aesthetic goals. Dr. O’Connell utilizes ultrasonic liposuction and traditional liposuction as well as abdominoplasty, including mini-abdominoplasties, to optimize the aesthetic results for his body contouring patients.
It’s important for our patients to understand that all surgery, including aesthetic surgery, involves some uncertainty and risk. While we strive for perfection, this can never be achieved and, like all honest physicians, Dr. O’Connell cannot provide any guarantee, explicit or implied, as to the result or outcome of a surgical or other aesthetic procedure. What he can guarantee, however, is that he will do his very best. Dr. O’Connell will listen to your concerns and with the meticulous attention to detail he provides to each and every one of his patients he will do all he can to help you look your very best.
Consultations are by appointment only and are arranged by calling our office at (203) 454-0044.
