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...

Dr. Platis Has Amazing Talent! - Merrillville, IN

I first met Dr. Platis in 2008, after seeing his advertisement in a local NW Indiana medical magazine. He was being endorsed by none other than Dr. Phil, saying he was the leading surgeon in the Chicago area. We lived in NW Indiana so his Merrillville office was convenient for me. Made my appointment and was totally impressed with him. My first surgery was breast reduction and full tummy tuck....

5 weeks Post Surgery - New Pics - Swollen or Not Enough Fat Removed??

In less than a week I am having a full tummy tuck, lipo contouring, breast lift and lipo on my legs. It's a lot to do in one surgery which makes me very nervous. I think I'm more nervous about the pain but after reading other posts I am feeling much better. My friend had the same procedures by Dr. Platis and so far he has been amazing. It's been 3 years since my last baby and 3 years of...

Great Doctor! Perfect Results! - Merrillville, IN

Always wanted to wear bras and swimsuits without padding and now I can!! 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...

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...
