5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Dr. Krochmal is the best!

I had a perfect experience with Dr. Krochmal. I'm nineteen years old and I've never had any sort of surgery or procedure before, so going in for a breast reduction was very scary for me. From the very beginning, Dr. Krochmal was very informative to me and my parents (who worry like its their job) on absolutely everything we needed to know. He explained everything very thoroughly, and calmed my...

Amazing Experience- Top Surgeon

I met with Dr. Krochmal for a consult to remove excess skin in my stomach and backside after losing 250lbs years ago. I am in my 30s and was unable to ever wear shorts, cute underwear, lingerie and lacked confidence. He was amazing- he instantly had a vision of what the plan would be, he was excited to go through all the details and he promised me I would look and feel like a new person. Once...

BA REVISION 370cc Sientra Gummy to 545cc Natrelle Inspira Silicone Round SRXHP

Dr Krochmal has been an amazing doctor and immaculate surgeon! I was confident that he would do a great job, after having been to his office 3 times before my surgery for consultations and pre-op appointments. He spent a significant amount of time with my husband and I , answering questions, showing us pictures and working with us to determine the right size that will please both of us. He ordered samples to help us make our final decision and even suggested an option to help give me a 'lift ' effect to enhance the outcome, which I haven't done initially, but plan to in a few years when gravity will take hold. (inevitable for us all!) His staff is wonderful and worked with my schedule after hours and during the holidays to accommodate my needs. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an educated, kind and experienced and precise doctor.

You won't be disappointed

There is no denying you get extremely nervous about plastic surgery but the process with Dr. Krochmal was very smooth and very comfortable. He was able to listen to exactly what I wanted and did just that. I'm super happy with my results!

5 out of 5 stars Butt Implants

I am thrilled with the results!

From the initial consultation I was completely comfortable with Dr. Krochmal. He made sure I was very informed of every option. I had already done a lot of research on butt augmentations. I felt he was the best surgeon for me. I really appreciated that he did not sugar coat any of what the pain and recovery would be like. He wanted me to be very prepared. The pain was quite a lot! As he...

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.
