5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
Doctor has 15 plus years of experience. Consultation went very well. He appears to be very knowledgeable, and his work looks great. He's very detailed regarding what to expect during the procedure. The office location and space was great. Only down side is that the rooms need better sound proofing. Others can hear you during your consultation, not great pt. confidentiality.

Referral from friend who had same procedures.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Dr. Platis went above and beyond when explaining he procedure and all possible issues that could arise. I had a million questions prepared to ask and I don't think I actually had to ask any of them because be already covered everything. Late was even helpful and spoke of her own personal experience in surgery and recovery. I am more than pleased with the results of my breast augmentation and even more assured of the great job that Dr. Platis did when my girlfriends who have already had augmentations compliment me and comment that they wish their breasts looked like mine and ask me who my doctor was as if they would consider getting theirs redone by Dr. Platis. I came to Platis because I know someone who had a lift and augmentation, which I know is a complex surgery and Dr. Platis did an amazing job!! They looked perfect. I knew I could go to a few of the other popular doctors in the area for a less expensive procedure but it was worth the higher price to be more sure of having a perfect outcome. The website photos will show you the difference. I would definitely recommend this doctor and his teams if you are looking into a breast augmentation.
4 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal
Dr Platis has been very gracious with this aspect of things and has catered to my needs quite well. He too agreed that it was a good logical step. So glad I did it.
3 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover
My doctor was board certified and had 15 plus year's experience. He seemed very knowledgeable however, once I started having weird symptoms he had no clue or any valuable input, I feel all alone with no one to rely on for assistance.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants
Dr. Platis is a six star doctor on a five star rate scale. My appointment took place at his satalite office in Indiana, not his main office in Chicago, Illinois. This office is located in a pleasant, slightly remote area. It is an unpretentious warm environment, where I was greeted by Kate, a beautiful young woman who is both helpful and very kind. My anxiety level was high, as I bared my soul (and my chest) to Dr. Platis, but he was neither condescending nor intimidating. Instead, he seemed like a very nice person who truly knew how to listen. He told me a breast lift post the removal of my current implants would not make me happy. I believe he used the term "flat as a pancake"...(Did I mention he is a very effective communicator?) After some debate over saline verses silicone implants, he chose the latter and I am so grateful for this decision, as my breasts now look and feel like ME!...( only "pre" babies ) Dr. Platis phoned ater surgery to ask how I felt ( Talk about a sound work ethic) I reported to him that I felt very little pain and required no pain medication. This was such a sharp and welcomed contrast from my first surgery, which left me on narcotic pain killers every four hours several days after my operation. I am nine days post op and have not needed even OTC meds, even though a breast lift is much more involved than an augmentation. That can only mean one thing. Dr. Platis is a gifted surgeon, with a keen eye for symmetry, making it possible for him to produce exceptional results . I am so grateful for his skill and his compassion. He is the 'real deal/complete package' Don't take me word for it, though, do come and see for yourself, no matter by car, train or plane. For the proof, as they say, is in the pudding, and my pudding has never been better.

Dr. Platis and his staff were very professional and friendly. They make you feel very comfortable.
