5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

30 Y/o with No Kids but Loose Skin After Weight Loss - Chicago, IL

I lost 60 lbs, mostly from my stomach, when I was 20 y/o after being overweight since the age of 12. It left me with extra skin hanging off my mid section and no visible belly button. After 10 years I decided to take care of it with a tummy tuck, even though I had never had kids. This was a gift to myself - I work out regularly, eat healthy, and deserve to see the beautiful muscles hidden...

Im Finally Going to Do It!!! But I'm Having Doubts!!!!! - Merrillville, IN

Doctor has 15 plus years of experience. Consultation went very well. He appears to be very knowledgeable, and his work looks great. He's very detailed regarding what to expect during the procedure. The office location and space was great. Only down side is that the rooms need better sound proofing. Others can hear you during your consultation, not great pt. confidentiality.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Great Doctor! Perfect Results! - Merrillville, IN

Dr. Platis went above and beyond when explaining he procedure and all possible issues that could arise. I had a million questions prepared to ask and I don't think I actually had to ask any of them because be already covered everything. Late was even helpful and spoke of her own personal experience in surgery and recovery. I am more than pleased with the results of my breast augmentation and even more assured of the great job that Dr. Platis did when my girlfriends who have already had augmentations compliment me and comment that they wish their breasts looked like mine and ask me who my doctor was as if they would consider getting theirs redone by Dr. Platis. I came to Platis because I know someone who had a lift and augmentation, which I know is a complex surgery and Dr. Platis did an amazing job!! They looked perfect. I knew I could go to a few of the other popular doctors in the area for a less expensive procedure but it was worth the higher price to be more sure of having a perfect outcome. The website photos will show you the difference. I would definitely recommend this doctor and his teams if you are looking into a breast augmentation.

Almost 6 weeks Post Op and Miserable - Chicago, IL

My doctor was board certified and had 15 plus year's experience. He seemed very knowledgeable however, once I started having weird symptoms he had no clue or any valuable input, I feel all alone with no one to rely on for assistance.

Beyond Pleased

I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Platis and his work! Prior to my surgery, I simply came in to have a consultation about replacing my previous implants and having areola reduction surgery. While I originally intended to have several consultations with different surgeons, it was clear to me after speaking with him this wouldn’t be necessary. He addressed all of my concerns t...
