I did my research for sure!
The entire staff is professional. They made me feel at ease. I was very nervous but determined to have the procedure done. I've had breast augmentation from a different doctor/team so I can definitely compare the difference in client service/patient care. From the first phone call, consult, day of surgery, post op appointment, you know they care. Dr Placik has a genuine smile planted on his face until he has to concentrate and think of ideas and ways he can accommodate your special request. He smiles again calls his team and makes plans in front of you. There are no secrets. He's very honest and sincere. The nurses Shari, Laura they are angels! I had a complication with urinary retention due to my reaction to medication ( it could have been a situation gone bad) but Laura was on the phone with me, my husband, all hours of the day and night. We even texted back and fourth on a Sunday.
Now, 6 days post op I'm black and blue, swollen all over as expected. This is my review from my experience so far. I'll review again in 3 months. I've already referred a friend. And I will keep recommending to anyone interested in this procedure:) ?Ajluv


Can't wait to hear about how you look in 3 months! I had a Brazilian butt aug with Dr. Placik and he's great!! I agree his staff is awesome as well, they really care about how your doing and are super friendly!

No naked before pics..but here's what I have..

I really feel bad now that I didn't have before pics. So I'm posting some form of pic to see what my body type was. I know it doesn't say much. But I'm 5'3, 130, and pretty proportion. ( neither top/ bottom heavy) I've worked out all my life. I'm one of those people that exercise is not a chore. I just do it because I've done it since I was about 11 brought up by my mom as something I should always be doing. I used to eat everything just cuz I didn't know better. But being in the health field I've learned and adjusted my life style. I've gained 30 lbs my 1st pregnancy, 30 my second. 10 lbs from Failed IVF. But on a regular basis 5 lbs is the most weight gain. Tha damage was mostly my lower abdomen( which is what I should have took a pic of) when I turned 41 it just seemed to pooch out more. I will now post my 9 dpo pic w/ w/o binder.


I am very happy! So happy I've told a few of my friends thinking about some form of surgery. Ck out my pic. I know their not as great as yours so sorry about that. I'll post my one week post op now. I have such a low pain tolerance but sucking it up and just taking Tylenol now. I still walk like I'm a hundred years old. Just really, really sore. Was it pretty painful for you the 1st week too? When did you quit Norco? I'm so tempted to keep taking it. But I won't. I'm taking Tylenol every 6 hrs, icing on and off all day. Walking around the house ever hour or so. I would say the most painful is first thing in the morning just waking up I feel I can't move at all. Love your pictures! What a transformation! And I can't wait to get on some 2 piece bikini myself. 6 mos maybe?

Pain and swelling...ouch!


Hi :) I'm looking for a doctor in my area and I keep seeing his results which look great, so I'm leaning towards meeting with him. Do you have any recent pictures of your scar and your belly button? Thank you in advance :)
