    I could'nt have asked for a better surgeon, Mr Fitzgerald O'Connor. At 62 years old I now have the waist of a 25yrs old. I could'nt be more pleased with the treatment and care was above and beyond my expectations. Mr Fitzgerald O'Connor explained everything in terms that I understood. The care at the Welbeck was excellent, 24hrs one to one nursing. My recovery was fast and medbelle kept in constant touch regarding my recovery

    From the first time I met Mr Fitzgerald O'Connor I knew he was the right surgeon for me. He listened to me during the consultation and was able to explain exactly what to expect from the surgery. I was nervous on the day of surgery, the entire team at the hospital where so kind and caring. I woke up in no pain, Mr Fitzgerald O'Connor saw me straight after and again later on in the evening as I stayed overnight. Im now 6 weeks after my tummy tuck and I just wish I had the courage to have this operation sooner. It has totally changed my life, I'm now more confident with my body , its really turned back the clock. I can't thank him enough for what he as done.

Mr Fitzgerald O'Connor was extremelly calming, he explained everything to me in a very straight forward way I would understand and really listened to what I wanted to achieve by the procedure. The result is exactly what I wanted, I couldn't be happier or recommend him highly enough.

    Mr Fitzgerald is a highly-skilled plastic surgeon who performs work of the highest quality. We work together as part of the Orthoplastics team at King's College Hospital: Once the bone has been fixed by the orthopaedic surgeon, I have the utmost confidence in Mr Fitzgerald protecting that fixation with excellent soft-tissue coverage.
