    I saw Mr Edmund Fitzgerald O'Connor for two consultations prior to having surgery (en bloc implant removal and uplift). He took time during the consultations to find out what I wanted to achieve through surgery, to discuss various options and explain everything thoroughly. I am an extremely anxious person by nature and so I was very nervous about having surgery but he completely put my mind at ease about the procedure. On the day of surgery everything was so well organised and I was made to feel calm and reassured. The surgery went extremely well and I could not be more pleased with the results. In view of my personal experience I would highly recommend Mr Edmund Fitzerald O'Connor.

    I could not recommend Dr Fitzgeraldoconnor enough! From the moment I first met him I knew he was the surgeon for me , as for everything first impressions count! After having 4 consultations including mr O’Connor , mr O’Connor was the only surgeon who actually listened to me and not fed me things I wanted to hear. He made expectations real and was honest about what could be achieved and what couldn’t! His friendly manner was the icing on the cake for me , no question too small or too big I felt like this surgeon had a lot of time for me. He was present at every consultation , throughout the surgery and aftercare this was a must that I saw my surgeon throughout the whole journey of my procedure. I had a fdl tummy tuck and a breast lift and the results blew my mind there everything and more than I could of ever imagined. I went into surgery not expecting perfect but believe me I came out of surgery feeling like it couldn’t of gone better! The shape of my boobs from the uplift was so natural the scaring was the best I have ever seen and that is not just me being bias! If you are looking for a surgeon who is always o the end of the phone if you need them , someone who will listen to what you want and 5 star would I would highly recommend considering mr Fitzgeraldoconnor the whole journey has been 5 star from the first consultation to now where I am still under his care with my check up’s 12 weeks post op and I am feeling on top of the world. I just want to say Thankyou to mr Fitzgeraldoconnor and his P.A Dina who was the most helpful p.a I have ever come across I never had to chase anything I always had the quickest and politest response! Also a bit Thankyou to the amazing nurses at st Thomas hospital where my surgery was carried out. I am thrilled with my results and can not wait to live my life as a new woman. Being 25 I feel like mr Fitzgeraldoconnor helped me achieve the body I worked hard for after a huge weight loss.

    I had breast implants removed after 11 years because I suffered from BII. I had removal with en bloc capsulectomy and a breast uplift at the same time. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Not only do I feel healthy, I’m so happy with the shape and look of my breasts. It has only been two weeks since surgery and the scars are hardly visible. The pain from surgery was minimal, much less than when I had breast augmentation. I researched different surgeons for 2 years before I decided to go with Mr O’Connor and I have no regret’s at all. I felt safe, well looked after and for sue he’s a very talented plastic surgeon.

    From the beginning consultation, I felt very much at ease with Dr Edmund O’Connor. He was very knowledgable and insightful regarding the procedure, listened intently with my concerns with useful advice and a clear way forward. I trusted his opinion and the operation itself felt very relaxed with a professional and calm approach. I even played my own music which really put me and ease. After care exceptional. Couldn’t recommend him enough. Thank you kindly, loving the results.

    Mr Fitzgerald O'Connor is an exceptionally talented plastic surgeon and delivers the very best in patient care. I have now shared several patients management (some very complex) with Ed and seen first hand his surgical skill, eye for detail and comprehensive patient management. His level of care, time spent and the way he communicates with patients is admirable. I would thoroughly recommend him to my patients, colleagues and friends.
