I Would Send All of my Friends and Family to Dr. P! - Arlington Heights, IL

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Love my Results! - Arlington Heights, IL

I consulted several plastic surgeons in the area, and after visiting Dr. P I was immediately won over. He and his nurse spent a lot of time with me on my first consultation. He answered every question and never made me feel rushed or pressured to undergo surgery. I am an ER nurse so I have A LOT of experience working with physicians. I can tell you that it is rare to come across a doctor who has such an amazing bedside manner and is so skilled in his craft. His staff called me at home to see how I was recovering, and follow up appointments were easy to make. I recommend Dr. P to all my friends and would return if I were to have additional surgery in the future.

Breast asymmetry and correct volume:5' 2" inch 100lb female +20 lbs doesn't equal 5' 7" 120lb female
