5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I had my tummy tuck back in 2003 and it was the best decision I've ever made.My babies were all over 9 lbs and my skin was so stretched out that no matter of exercise would repair the damage. I met Dr Makhlouf when he did my breast aug and he did an excellent job still very happy with my results. So when I did the tummy tuck I knew he would do an excellent job .He is very professional and...

5 out of 5 stars Chin Implant
The doctor was very knowledgeable about this procedure. He was also very personable which made comfortable about making the decision to get a chin implant. I am so happy with the results. I have a more manly facial profile and I feel so much more confident about myself. The doctor explained the whole process to me, the healing stages as well as what to expect including the time frame and such...
5 out of 5 stars Butt Implants
Had a buttock augmentation done by Dr. Makhlouf and I must say that I LOVE it!!! Overall my experience was pleasant. I did a lot of research on doctors for this specific procedure (butt implants) but I found that most plastic surgeons here in Illinois no longer do them. He spent quite a while going over what the procedure would be like during my consultation. The consultation was $100 but...

I did it so that I would feel better about myself and the result of the surgery did just that. To be perfectly honest there are no cons about my experience all I have to say are only positive things.
5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover
I had 2 C sects over 27 years ago and spent most of the years since overweight. I finally lost over 125 lbs but the little skin left has always made me feel 'fat." I didn't have much extra skin, but what I did have just wouldn't go away with just excercise. I told my Doctor by the time I hit age 50 I was having a tummy tuck. So, the day after my 50th birthday, I was getting my tummy tuck and a...
Dr M. Vincent Makhlouf did this disaster surgery, at Holly Family Hospital on August 5th, 2011. Like they say, a pictures says more than 1000 words. He left me deformed. He thinks he did nothing wrong, but my opinion and the opinion of all the doctors that have seen me, its that he has done malpractice. Be careful before you have a procedure done by him. I paid him to do this! I would...
1 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Unfortunately I had a horrible experience with this doctor. He had done rhinoplasty on me and I noticed my nose went to one direction. When I brought this to his attention, he had told me in order to straighten my nose , I would have to go through surgery again and pay 7,000 all over again. I found it very unprofessional , he should have willing redo the surgery without me having to pay again...

What is a successful consultation? A successful consultation has to have specific outcomes that will be achieved. But before we get to the discussion of what these should be, both the patient and the office have to be prepared for the interaction. The patient gets prepared by investigating the office, investigating the practitioner and checking the credentials, certificates, reputation and the experience, and preparing question they want to cover during the visit. The office...
Today Plastic Surgery offers many options to address body contouring. I believe that as knowledge, technology and new pharmaceuticals continue to improve we will see many more avenues available to address these issues. A qualified surgeon must be able to offer a variety of modalities to address patients’ concerns: from liposuction to skin and muscle tightening to lipodissolve. He should be diversified and have more than one tool (a hammer) in his toolbox so that not all problems will be a...
One of the legitimate concerns people have regarding abdominoplasty is the cost of the procedure. There are two reasons to ask the cost of a purchase: The first reason is to see whether we can afford the purchase, and the second reason is to compare the purchase price at different locations. In order to decide if one can afford the procedure, an evaluation of one’s financial situation is needed: • Do I have the money now? • Am I going to have unexpected expenses...
Questions that people are asking. Esta página también está disponible en: Español Q: Is there a difference between buttock augmentation and buttock lift? A: There may be some redundancy of the skin, but the buttock augmentation patient is seeking mainly fullness in the region, whereas the buttock lift patient wants to get rid of the redundancy that has occurred due to aging or weight loss. A small amount of redundancy can be corrected by increasing...
