5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

42 Years Old, Two Kids and a Full Hysterectomy

I ate healthy and worked out 5 days a week. I would loose weight everywhere else except my stomach. The more weight I lost in other parts of my body minus my Tummy I began to look like Sponge Bob.???? I got discouraged and stopped excising. I was always a athlete, watched what I ate. After the hysterectomy in (2015) my stomach became out of control. After visiting two doctors prior to Dr. Lisa...

Amazing Procedure!

Lisa Peters was absolutely amazing. She was extremely qualified but also patient. I trusted her completely and would go to her again in a heartbeat! Her staff worked with me to find a time that was good for a working mom. I can't say enough good things about her!

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

67 Year Old Eyelid Surgery

I just received eyelid surgery from Dr Lisa Peters. It has been 1 month and I cannot explain how pleased I am. She did an awesome job. Even after 30 days you can barely see the stitches. I felt she cared about the outcome as much as I did. She explained everything very well and her bedside manner left me feeling like a made the right decision. Dr Peters even made a phone call to my home the...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

35 Years Old 3 Kids. Gummy Bear Implants - Oak Park, IL

Dr Peters was very helpful and informative when it came to me deciding which implant to go with, the anatomical "gummy bear" implant or the round implant. She answered all questions or concerns I had before the surgery and made me feel very comfortable with her during the first consult. After I had the surgery I had concerns about some bruising , and Dr Peters was quick to respond to me to...

Love my results

21 Year Old, College Student with 36G Breasts and Extremely Unhappy! - Oak Park, IL

My story starts like everyone else's. Having big breasts as a young teen, them growing uncontrollably and now extreme back and neck pains. From what I can remember, the first time I remember going bra shopping for school I was already a size D. I remember wanting the cute Flirtitude bras from JCPenney but my breasts were far too large for those. In my freshman year of college my body went...

Free from Back Pain! 38DDD No More. - Oak Park, IL

Perfectionist. Gracious. Kind. Realistic. Professional.

4 out of 5 stars Liposuction

24 Engaged to Be Married! LIPO on Abdomen and Love Handles - Chicago, IL

First of all, she was a woman! That's what got my attention first - her whole staff also were females, which made me feel more comfortable. She seemed like a perfectionist- which I liked. I trusted her just from how she spoke, and how she explained the procedure and so on. Every review I read about her was very helpful, and her staff was extremely nice. She was very professional, and honest. Not that I care how "nice" my doctor is, rather that they do a good job. She does not advertise - which I think says a lot about a surgeon. I think she could of spent a little more time with me at my pre-op. My mom (obviously being very nervous for me freaked out) And I don't think Dr. Peters handled that the correct way, but was very apologetic afterwards. Her assistant, Jen, was helpful through the whole process - at first she intimidated me and then after that I was at ease by seeing her.
