5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Two Stage Mommy Makeover - 3 Kids - an NO General Anesthesia!! Glenview, IL

I had been stalking this website for nearly a year thinking should I, or shouldn't I. At first I really just wanted a tummy tuck. Three kids, 60 lb weight loss and lots of skin, that was the thing I was really sure I wanted. Then I started looking at other options. A breast lift seem doable but it was a struggle to find a surgeon who felt they could do both well or if they could do both,...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Great Experience and Results with Tummy Tuck Under Local/Oral Sediation. Glenview, IL

After having 2 large babies my stomach was not where I wanted it to be. Despite working out 4-5 days a week I couldnt get my stomach back to where it was before kids. Also 2 c-sections left my stomach almost lopsided. I had a breast augmentation done with Dr. Casas in 2012, and she did an AMAZING job. If you are looking into BA you MUST go see her. She specializes in natural looking...

5 out of 5 stars Mini Tummy Tuck

Top-notch Surgeon! - Glenview, IL

I am a healthy, in-shape mother of twins.  But no matter how much I worked out, I couldn't get rid of the tummy that I had as a result of my twin pregnancy. Dr. Casas performed an abdominoplasty on me in October, 2006.  She and her PA conducted thorough pre-operative teaching and I went into the surgery with a solid understanding of what the post-op recovery period would...

5 out of 5 stars Labiaplasty

23 Year Old Labia Reduction Surgery - Glenview, IL

I am 23 years old and recently had labia reduction surgery with Dr. Casas a little over a week ago. I had struggled with over sized labia since as long as I can remember. My labia minora would extend past my labia majora and would cause irritation and discomfort for me on a daily basis and would constantly rub against my clothing. My labia would also make me self conscious in my bathing suit,...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

Breast Lift - Mastopexy Under Local Anasthetic - Glenview, IL

It has only been 6 days since my procedure and already I am 100 percent pleased. I should have done it sooner. Initially the idea of a local Anasthetic made me nervous, but Dr. Casas promised I'd be comfortable and she was true to her word. I didn't feel or remember anything. My breasts look amazing. Let me say that again...... they look Amazing. I had no idea this could even be possible....

5 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

Smart Lipo Results Look Great! - Glenview, IL

I was confident going into this as I had been well prepared by Dr. Casas. She and her staff were wonderful. The procedure was painless. The necessary bandages were awkward but not problematic. There are no visible scars. Friends have asked if I have lost weight. No, I just have a smoother, younger neck.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Fantastic Minimal Pain and Beautiful Natural Result - Glenview, IL

I never developed breasts so this surgery has made me feel normal instead of deformed. Actually I feel beautiful and sexy.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

My Breast Augmentation Revision Looks Beautiful and Natural - Glenview, IL

I had a breast augmentation revision on one side. My implants were 14 years old and I was referred to Dr. Casas by a friend. The implant had turned hard and was surrounded by scar tissue. I looked deformed on the one side. The implant was also the wrong size-smaller then the other side. I had the surgery because I wanted to look normal.

5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

CoolSculpt=CoolResults! - Highland Park, IL

I am a 50 year old male 6' 190 lb. Although I have never been what one would consider fat or overweight; I had developed pockets of diet and exercise fat on my flanks( love handles) and stomache. I had one treatment on my flanks and three on my stomache. My love handles are virtually gone and my stomache has reduced with each treatment. I did experience some pain and discomfort during the...

Differences in Wound Healing Between Ultrasound-assisted Lipoplasty and Suction-assisted Lipoplasty in Inverted T-Pattern Breast

Background: Inverted T-pattern breast reduction does not directly address axillary or lateral chest wall fullness. Lipoplasty of this tissue has been advocated by some surgeons to reduce additional scarring. Objective: A prospective study was designed to examine the differences in wound healing of the breast reduction skin flaps when ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty (UAL) and suction-assisted lipoplasty (SAL) were each used as an adjunct to inverted T-pattern breast reduction surgery...

Multisite Analysis of 177 Consecutive Primary Breast Augmentations: Predictors for Reoperation

Background Plastic surgeons and manufacturers of breast implants have been examining the complication and reoperation rates of primary breast augmentations for more than 18 years. The seemingly high rates reported by the manufacturers to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) were the impetus for this multicenter study. Objective This paper reports on data pooled from three plastic surgery practices that were geographically distributed across the United States and examines the...

Nonsurgical Rejuvenation of the Aging Face With Injectable Poly-L-Lactic Acid ( Sculptra)for Restoration of Soft Tissue Volume

Background: Characteristics of the aging face include soft tissue atrophy, loss of skin elasticity resulting in excess facial skin, and gravitational descent or ptosis of facial soft tissues. Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) is a synthetic biodegradable polymer that provides soft tissue augmentation through stimulation of an inflammatory tissue response with subsequent collagen deposition. Objective: The authors discuss the special considerations inherent in facial aging, describe the mechanism of...

Introduction to: Current Aesthetic Use of AbobotulinumtoxinA (Dysport) in Clinical Practice An Evidence-Based Consensus Review

The field of cosmetic medicine continues to develop because of our desire to provide safe, predictable, aesthetic results for our patients.

Non-narcotic Acute Pain Relief After Ambulatory Aesthetic Surgery

Acute postoperative pain after ambulatory aesthetic surgery that involves large muscles or multiple-area soft tissue traumas may be effectively managed without narcotics. The authors describe how they use COX-2 inhibitors, bolus (large-area local anesthetic), or continuous-infusion local anesthetic. Managing acute postoperative pain after ambulatory surgery has been ignored in postgraduate medical education and medical textbooks1–3 and journals,4 whereas managing pain in the hospitalized...
