"When I went in for my original consultation, I asked the Dr. about doing both the TT and breast reduction/lift at the same time because I saw that many doctors perform ‘mommy makeovers’ where they do all-in-one..." "In follow-up appointments since, Dr. Kurley has been very good about making sure that he answered any questions I had, and he is great at putting me at ease with assurances that the things I was feeling were no..." "I am beyond delighted with my results and the care I received."

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

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

Dr. Kurley was very professional in all of our interactions. His office staff and aenesthitist offer excellent support. Dr. Kurley made me thoroughly aware of all the risks and any drawbacks, as well as frankly stating what the proceedure entailed and what he expected of me. Obviously this is a positive thing for any surgery, but the results were quick, amazing, and easy to deal with. I am now taking all of my filler/cosmetic needs to Dr. Kurley (botox, juvederm, etc.)

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck - Central IL

During initial consultation, Dr. Kurley explained in depth the procedure I was interested in - no question went unanswered, and honestly I only had to ask very few questions after his initial "talk". It's obvious he knows this procedure - the pros - the cons - and everything "in between". Each follow up I've been to has been direct and to the point, just the way I like it. Dr. Kurley always takes time to answer my questions, when I have them - but usually he's telling me what I want to know, before I even ask. I've called several times to ask about "this & that" - speaking with his assistant, Kendra is just as good as talking to Dr. Kurley himself. She stays informed and up-to-date on MY procedure and is capable of answering all of my questions. I don't think I've ever waited more than 5 minutes in the lobby at this office - and I always get there early! I definitely feel as though I'm "the only patient" (even though I know that's not the case).

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 heard about Dr. Kurley and the Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation Surgery on the radio and thought why not check into it. From the moment I spoke with his wonderful staff and making my 1st initial appointment to the morning I walked into his office for surgery, I was treated with the upmost respect. Everyone at your office went that extra mile to make sure I was happy, comfortable and had every question answered. Thank you again for everything you and your staff did to make my experience the best..

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

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

Dr. Kurley and his staff were some of the nicest people I have ever met, HANDS DOWN. He took time to explain every option and detail and allowed plenty of time to ask questions. He prepared me very well for what to expect. He explained to me all the possible risks and covered anything and everything that I wanted to know. He gave me two different options for implant sizes and explain how going any bigger could cause an unnatural (uniboob or double bubble) look. I am so happy with how they turned out. Choosing Dr. Kurley and his staff is the best decision anyone can make. I beyond thrilled with my experience and results.

Beautiful Skin Resurfacing - Champaign, IL

Dr. Kurley is a very knowledgeable and ethical doctor that I would highly recommend. In addition, his staff of Amy, Nicole, and Janice are very kind and professional. Dr. Kurley also makes the time for three after-care appointments which I really appreciate.

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...
