5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Dr. Kurley is a Miracle Worker! - Champaign, IL

I had pancreatic cancer 10 years ago and have weighed just 100 lb. since then. My breasts had shrunk to less than an A cup. At age 61 I looked more like a pre-teen. My fiance and I both wanted me to be more voluptuous. Dr. Kurley performed the most amazing, problem-free surgical breast augmentation. No pain, no bleeding, no narcotic pain killers, just ibuprofin for a couple of days and a...

Tummy Tuck - Central IL

I am a 35 year old, mother of three, all delivered by c-section, the "old way" (a vertical incision) - ages 16-9. I am under 5-foot-tall, have lost close to 30 pounds using the tried-and-true method (eating right/exercise) and have maintained that weight loss for over one year. I was frustrated that no matter how "fit" I was getting, "it" (my ugly tummy) was...

Breast Augmentation by Dr. Kurley - Champaign, IL

I had breast augmentation surgery with Dr. Kurley in Champaign, IL. I chose this doctor based on a referral and the fact that he performs the "Rapid Recovery" procedure. Dr Kurley and his staff were professional, helpful, and understanding of my concerns. The procedure and post-op experiences were exactly what they had told me to expect. I would highly recommend Dr. Kurley to anyone considering cosmetic procedures.

Amazing Experience - Champaign, IL

I am 49 and a mother of 2. After having my last child 4 years ago, I noticed a major difference in my breast and was not happy at all with the looks.  I had the Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation with lift (using silicone gel implants) and can say honestly it was amazing. I was back to work the next day and hitting the gym on the second day. I had no problems what so ever and I am so...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

21 Year Old, Saline Implants, 265 CCs, 32 C Before Surgery, 32 DDD After, - Champaign, IL

I had always wanted bigger breasts. After I began working out heavily, I lost a lot of breast tissue and this made me want the implants even more. Over time I slowed down working out and I gained some volume back in my breasts, but I was still convinced that I wanted them bigger. I went with the Saline implants because the silicone were not an option since I wasn't 22 years old yet. I also...

So Worth It - Champaign, IL

I'm 25, and have wanted breast implants for as long as I can remember. I finally took the plunge and did it this April. I'm writing this as a thank you to Dr. James Kurley. My mother had been going to his clinic for years for treatment of varicose veins on her legs. When I expressed to her that I was finally going to get implants, she strongly encouraged me to go to Dr. Kurley. The entire...

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Facial Enhancements That Look Natural - Champaign, IL

Although I'm in my early thirties, I always looked tired. Even when I had a lot of sleep, people would ask me if I was sleep deprived! I received Botox injections around my eyes where the crows feet usually appear and Juvederm injections at my smile lines.  The effect of the Juvederm was apparent after a few days.  I looked five year younger!  After a month, the benefits...
