5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Amazing Doctor and Amazing Experience!!

Dr. Pelletiere was amazing. I have never had any prior plastic surgery and a friend referred me to his office. His staff and he were great and made me feel very comfortable. I gained over 100 lbs while pregnant with my daughter 12 years ago and although I was successful in losing the weight, I had a lot of excess skin left over. Dr. Pelletiere had a lot to work with and did an amazing job....

Perfect breasts!

I had a breast augmentation with Dr. Pelletiere. He was very professional and very attentive. I had a better service with him than my first surgeon in Canada. Dr. Pelletiere knew exactly what I wanted and my expectations were fulfilled. I have the dream breast that I always wanted (over 1000 cc). At first, I wanted an appointment with Dr. Pousti or Dr. Revis. I do not regret my choice at all....

I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Chris Pelletiere! He did an amazing job on my breast augmentation. I went to 5 plastic surgeons and he was by far the best one!

I highly recommend him whenever I show off my girls they always say how perfect they are and how amazing my plastic surgeon did!! I love Dr Chris Pelletiere!

Reclaiming my Post Baby Breasts - Barrington, IL

Thrilled with my Results! - Barrington, IL

I'm very excited to write this review. It's been about 3 months from my breast augmentation surgery with dr Chris. This was my reward to myself for losing 40 lbs, however, I've never had surgery before. To say i was nervous was an understatement! I was referred to dr Chris from a close friend who had the surgery a year before. Dr Chris and I stayed in touch via email and phone calls because i...

Should Have Done It Sooner! - Inverness, IL

I have truly enjoyed my experience from start to finish with Dr. Chris Pelletiere. I wanted a breast augmentation for many years but struggled to find "the one" that would make me comfortable enough to go through with it. I was frightened to go into surgery because I had never gone under the knife but when I met Dr. Pelletiere I knew I'd be in good hands. His education, experience, keen eye to detail and demeanor reassured me that I could get the results I desired. I am two weeks post op and couldn't be happier. Just as I would with my friends and family, I highly recommend you see him for any procedure you are considering. You'll be happy you did!

Happy with my Results - Inverness, IL

It is a father/son practice. I see the more experienced one, but if his son is anything like his dad he will inherit me as a patient someday. He is very kind, answers all your questions, and is not pushy at all. The woman at the front desk is very friendly, I know she has a kid going off to college but wow, either she has great genes or the doctor works his miracles on her. She looks awesome.

Excellent Surgeon - Hoffman Estates, IL

I traveled out of state to see him and he and his office were very accomodating. He made me comfortable throughout my consultation and answered all of my questions honestly. He was very responsive to any emails that I sent him and even followed up with me after my initial consultation to summarize what we had talked about and to make sure I didn't have additional questions. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.
