5 out of 5 stars MTF Breast Augmentation

440 Cc Mentor MemoryShape Breast Implants -Northbrook, IL

The first thing I noticed about Dr. Krochmal was how handsome he is. Okay, I know that's not what this review is all about, so I'll focus on more substantive matters....I did a lot of research on plastic surgeons in the Chicago area looking for one who I thought would best meet my breast augmentation needs as a trans woman, now 3 years into my transition, and having topped out at small B-cup breasts. I was looking for a surgeon who is comfortable working with all the implant types and sizes, placements, and incision locations to select a method and product appropriate for my age, frame, and self-image. Dr. Krochmal spent nearly two hours with me during consultation to come up with what we both agreed was the best plan. I had many questions which he answered in detail, even acknowledging one or two that he didn't have an answer for. Dr. Krochmal put me at ease right from the start, and being transgender was not an issue in any way for him or his staff. I felt very much at ease preparing for and going into surgery, having met the attending nurse, Jodi, and visited by the anesthesiologist who answered a few questions I had. Every step of the way was carried out in an organized, professional manner, including my interaction with Jill, the patient coordinator, and the people at the front desk. Everything proceeded smoothly from initial consultation to final follow-up. I was very impressed. My recovery was monitored by the doctor in three follow-up appointments that were quite routine because I experienced no complications, and my incisions were healing beautifully. Dr. Krochmal even suggested a treatment for some old hypertrophic scars that had not healed well. I appreciated the fact that MAE Plastic Surgery is located in a NW suburb of Chicago with plenty of free parking. I have no reservations about recommending MAE Plastic Surgery and Dr. Krochmal.

Dr. Krochmal is a knowledgeable doctor who takes the time to explain everything in detail. Dr. Krochmal and staff welcome you as family and will make your experience memorable. The amazing work from Dr. Krochmal speaks for itself. I have already recommended him to my friends and suggest a consultation if you're searching.

Dr. Krochmal has some serious skills !! He is also patient, caring, listens to your concerns, calms your fears, great bedside manner and makes sure that he can be reached by you whenever necessary. I have had some procedures done elsewhere and was nowhere near as thrilled with the results. Dr Krochmel told me exactly how I would look and I was skeptical. The teason I was skeptical was because his expectations of my outcome were greater than mine and hard to believe....but I truly do look exactly as promised ! Im never going anywhere else.

Breast Augmentation ... 36 Years In the Making! - Northbrook, IL

I went in to MAE for the initial consult. I was nervous, shy and had 101 questions. Dr Krochmal was very easy to talk to and answered all of my questions and additional ones I thought of while in the office. He was patient with me, reassuring and has a sense of humor. He's one of those types of people that you meet once and feel as though you've known him for years. It was clear that he was well versed in his craft. He explained new technology in breast implant particularly beneficial for me as one of the new types of implant saved me from having to have a lift! I was so excited. I scheduled the procedure. Recovery was not bad at all! The first 2 weeks were the worst in terms of soreness but it went by quickly. I'm not going to lie...I was very sore. Before I knew it I was working out again. I went back the day after the procedure for a check and at regular intervals after that. Dr Krochmal was diligent in making sure I was healing properly and seemingly never tired of all of the new questions I had for him at each visit. I'd recommend Dr. Krochmal in a heartbeat. He's awesome!

Lipo on Saddlebags - Great Doctor & Experience - Northbrook, IL

Dr. Krochmal is truly a special doctor. He is kind, engaging, and immediately puts you at ease. I never felt rushed during our appointments, and he was willing and available to answer any of my questions (no matter how mundane) that I had after surgery. I am so happy that I finally had this surgery and especially that I chose Dr. Krochmal. He’s wonderful!

With Dr. Krochmals background and expertise I couldn't have chose a better Doctor. Thankful for the referral I had because he has exceeded my expectations and continues to do so every week. He is very professional and would answer any question I was hesitant about. I am now 2 weeks out, no swelling, scars almost healed and feeling great. He is amazing!
