Dr. O’Sullivan was the first female plastic surgeon in New England and has practiced for over 30 years in the field, dedicating endless hours to treating the patient as a whole and providing excellence through her meticulous attention to detail.
Her practice has included two years of surgery in Indonesia where she started a burn unit for the care of acute and old burns. Dr. O’Sullivan was also a Plastic Surgical Ambassador to the Soviet Union. She has dedicated over 30 years in Massachusetts as a faculty member of Harvard Surgical Service, as well as in a private practice, treating skin cancers, hand anomalies, congenital anomalies, burns, trauma, and performing breast reconstruction, in addition to cosmetic surgery.

Dr. O’Sullivan is a single mother of three daughters, who through her role modeling, have all become doctors — two, plastic surgeons, and one, a dermatologist. One of
her daughters wrote in a letter of support, “Her surgical skills are unmatched for
perfectionism and attention to detail. Her remarkable artistic sense and innovative
allow her to create new techniques to reconstruct the normal from the
abnormal and provide superior results. She accepts nothing less than perfection.”
Dr. O’Sullivan works in private practice with her daughter, Dr. Kimberly Lloyd
O’Sullivan. Both doctors practice plastic, reconstructive, and aesthetic surgery. The mother/daughter team is characterized by a love for the artistry of aesthetic and reconstructive surgery. They take great pleasure in establishing a strong rapport with their patients and a continuity of care.
