    I would highly recommend Mr O’Connor! He was very extremely helpful when I asked my hundreds of questions and always explained everything honestly and thoroughly. He made me feel so comfortable and outlined all the risks that could occur which is definitely important. Best of all, my results are amazing and exactly as I had hoped for! If I ever want any other type of cosmetic surgery, I know where I will be going. Brilliant experience the whole way throughout.

    I only had consultation with Mr O Connor because once I met him I could tell he was genuine and very knowledgable in he’s field you could also tell he cared. Trust is such an important part of any surgery and I trusted him. He doesn’t sell a dream or agree to achieve something unachievable, he is very honest about what he can deliver and what is realistic for you as an individual. I had a FDL tummy tuck and lipo to flanks.

    Dr O'Connor was the ideal surgeon from the very first step of the way. He was happy to see me as many times as I needed prior to surgery. Every appointment he gave me ample amount of time to ask all my questions and explain everything in detail. He would lay all the options out available to me with the pros and con of each. Even when there was some issues I raised he was available to listen and offer the best solution that I was very pleased with. He listened to what I wanted and gave me realistic expectations of the outcome. He told me of all the details involved in the surgery including who would be my anaesthetist. The anaesthetist got in touch prior to surgery and he was excellent at reassuring me about all my worries. On the day of surgery again he gave me time to reiterate exactly what I wanted and understood clearly what I was trying to achieve. His work is amazing the scars are better than I could have ever imagined very thin and discreet. His post op care was exceptional as he made sure to check in on me and advised me of how to care for the scars after hospital discharge. All round best surgeon in the UK and a great team that are very professional start to end!

    I had a crescent thigh lift and an arm light with Mr Edmund Fitzgerald O’Connor which has been incredible throughout. From the initial stages to the operation and my results speak for themselves. Thank you to him for changing my life! I have a further procedure with him next year and I feel confident and comfortable that I am in excellent hands.

    I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. And I couldn’t be happier with the care I have received, it has truly exceeded my expectations. I am completely satisfied with my results and recovery so far. Mr Edmund Fitzgerald O’Connor realistically answered any worries and concerns I had. He made me feel I was truly cared for and very easy to speak to! I would not hesitate to go back to him for any future procedures and will definitely recommend him to any friends and family! Just wish I knew about him sooner :)

    From the first moment I met Mr Fitzgerald O’Connor I knew he was my surgeon, he was kind , realistic, knowledgeable and straight talking which I loved . My surgery (FDL &Arm Lift) took place on the 18th Sept ,from start to finish Ed and his team were open and honest friendly professional but most of all made me feel totally relaxed and confident in there abilities. Nearly 10 weeks on my results are exceptional, the scars , the aftercare spot on ,the way i look and feel is more than i ever expected too which is wondeful . Ive lost a huge amount of weight and hands down Mr Fitzgerald O’Connor was the best surgeon for the job ! Dont hestitate to book in he really is a genuis . I am forever grateful i researched and found him he literally has changed my life .

    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.
