5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Very Thankful ! - Chicago, IL

I've heard Dr. Ross was retiring later this month - and just wanted to give him my thanks! I was instilled with confidence from the moment he entered the room (for the consult). The procedure went smoothly - and the post op help I received from him was great too. My nose looks exactly like I wanted - I would've advised you to get his services if he was still in the business, but I'm sure he's...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

26 Years Old -- 120 Lb. Weight Loss (No Kids) -- Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift. Chicago, IL

Dr. David Ross is kind, takes his time with patients, and is also kind of funny. However, he is a very cut-and-dry, honest doctor who will tell patients the truth, even if it is not what they want to hear. He is realistic about the results that plastic surgery can achieve, and, most importantly, his work is excellent.

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

30yr. Old Single Mother of Three - Chicago, IL

Dr. Ross was awesome... He was charismatic, and funny... But also, very realistic... You can tell he loves what he does... He made me feel very comfortable and optimistic about my results... Annie, my consultant, was very sweet and she ensured all of my concerns were addressed... The anestesiologists were great and Marilyn, my recovery nurse, was cool... She even gave me some good aftercare tips... I would recommend Dr. Ross and his whole team at the liposuction institute to anybody...

4 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty. Chicago, IL

Doctor Ross was very rushed in the consult but he was thorough. He made me comfortable the day of the procedure.

5 out of 5 stars Tumescent Liposuction

23. No Kids. Liposuction of the Lower Abdomen & Back - Chicago, IL

Where to start!? The consultation w/Dr. Ross was amazing! He answered any questions I had without me even asking them. Not to mention he is quite the humorous fellow. His consultant Annie, is such a dear & answered any other concerns I had. She even let me email her pictures of how I would like my dream "body/stomach" to look & fowarded it to my Dr. They set me up with everything I needed. The day of my surgery went by so smoothly & fast, the only thing I remember is the final preparations & drawings on my skin. Every step of the way I was completely comfortable, even if my nerves got the best of me a bit. The nurse in the recovery room Marilyn is a definite help for sure! She even gave me more after care tips. I highly suggest this facility to everyone. Dr. Ross is amazing at what he does, you won't regret it.
