5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

Finally Neck Lift Done - Chicago, IL

For years I have not liked the look of my neck. I was constantly buying a new cream or serum that promised great results but their magic potions were making no difference in the appearance of my neck. I researched different laser treatments and fillers, both were expensive temporary fixes. I would looked at Plastic Surgeon websites and Dr Byuns was the only website that I had...

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Best Plastic Surgeon on the Planet!!!!! Northbrook, IL

I have been going to Dr. Byun for procedures for the last 12 years. I can't imagine what I would look like without his artistic touch. I am almost 64 years old. I have had a facelift, upper and most recently lower, browlift and currently get botox and platelet injections ( his technique is superb!) and look totally natural. No one would guess my age. I came to Dr. Byun after seeing a few...

Breast Decision Ever!!! - Chicago, IL

I wanted to make bigger and more perky breast

5 out of 5 stars Chemical Peel

30 Year Old with Skin Concerns -- Chemical Peel Customized to my Needs - Chicago, IL

My skin has always been a concern of mine. I had acne as an adolescent and I continue to have a pimple or two here and there each month. I am unfortunately not one of those who are blessed with beautiful, porcelain Asian skin. Even though this was only my second time getting the chemical peel, I can already feel and see a difference with my skin. My first visit was a consultation with Dr....

Dr. Byun Is The Best! - Chicago, IL

I received a blepharoplasty early February 2013 and I waited this long to write a review because I wanted to comment on the final results and be thoughtful to all of you who rely on these reviews to try to make informed decisions. I could not be happier with my decision to go with Dr. Byun, and nearly everyday my friends are still saying "aren't you glad you went to Dr. Byun and got this...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

37 Yr Old Mom of 3. Major Muscle Repair, TT w/ Lipo, & Fat Grafting to Face. Chicago

8 days until my surgery. Have been so swamped trying to get ahead on housework, errands, shopping, and all the other mom stuff that I haven't had too much time to be nervous. My kids are 8, 7, and 14 months. I'm a little worried about the no lifting requirement. Hard to not lift a toddler! I thought about waiting until a better time but it seems like this is my window. I can't imagine it would...

5 out of 5 stars Vaser Liposuction

Vaser Liposuction of Arms - Chicago, IL

Had Vaser liposuction of my upper arms with Dr. Byun in Northbrook (surgery in Chicago). After meeting with a few other surgeons I decided on him because he was the only one who thought I'd be happy with the result without also having a lift. The other doctors worried that I would just end p with smaller, but flabbier, upper arms. However, with the Vaser lipo, the skin contracts. I had 1600 cc...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Symmetry at Last! - Chicago, IL

I had my original breast implant surgery to correct asymmetry in 1994. Since then I have additional surgeries (once due to incorrect size and twice due to capsular contracture. Dr. Byun performed my 4th implant exchange. Other doctors had made it so I matched size-wise in a bra and clothes but I'd never matched naked. I didn't think it was even possible to have a breast with an implant look...

5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

63 Yrs. Getting Neck Lift, Mid Face and Upper and Lower Eye Lift - Chicago, IL

At 63 yrs and weight gain, I am sick of my neck. Lost my jaw line. My mouth has fallen and my eyes need a pick up. So after a long 3 years of researching doctors. I visited the man that I believe can do the best job on my eyes, my neck, and the mid face lift. Dr. Byun was very charming and personable. He told me his history and what procedures he would use if I decided to use his services. I...

5 out of 5 stars Wrinkle Treatment

Dermal Spin With Platelet Injections - Northbrook, IL

I'll be 65 in June. Dr. Byun has done all my surgeries, mid-lift, lower-lift, brow-lift etc... The structure of my face is great! My face is thin so there is some volume loss and my skin is thin and has some wrinkling. This is my new favorite procedure! Dr. Byun takes my blood and spins it to separate the white and red blood cells. He then injects only the white cells back into my face...
