5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Lost 100 Lbs and Had Sagging Skin - Oak Lawn, IL

Lost 100 lbs and kept it off for almost 5 years. No amount of working out would help so I got a breast reduction and lift and tummy tuck. I am 7 weeks post op and it was so worth it. It was a big surgery but was back at work on day 14 and back with my trainer in 6 weeks. The pain was manageable and the scars look beter every week

46, Mother of 1, 5 Abdominal Surgeries - Chicago, IL

Over the las 12 years I have had 5 abdominal surgeries to address issues with endometriosis and I've had one beautiful baby. My tummy had a huge vertical scar and the skin was dimpled over scar tissue that created a shelf at my belly button. Dr. Christopoulos was able to close a wide gap in my abdominal muscles and eliminate the vertical scar. My new scar is longer but hidden and so thin. ...

Mommy Makeover - Chicago, IL

I have thought about a Mommy Makeover for over five years. Fear kept me from truly moving forward. At 56 years old I finally realized it is now or never. I was a thin kid and young adult. I put on a lot of weight with my two children. I finally lost the weight and got healthy. I have maintained a healthy lifestyle for over five years. I am the type of person who does a lot of research...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Happy Birthday to Me! - Chicago, IL

I've been thinking about having a tummy tuck for a couple of years. I finally decided to do it before I get any older since I'm pretty healthy & tend to bounce back from medical procedures with little fuss. I consulted with 2 plastic surgeons in my area whose reputations were top notch. I felt most comfortable with Dr. Niki Christopoulos.

Very Happy!!! - Chicago, IL

I had a Mommy Makeover performed by Dr. Christopolus on March 4, of this year. I am a little over 3 weeks post-op and could not be happier. Her office is lovely and the staff is friendly. Not pushy with treatments, or like some other plastic surgeons offices, skilled look at you in a way that makes you feel like you need more work than you do. Dr. Christopolus's assistant Jessica is gentle,...

The More Weight I Lost the Bigger my Lower Abdomen Got - Chicago, IL

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Christopolous and her staff. Everyone is professional yet warm and compassionate. Dr. Christopolous went over the procedure with me and was available every time I had a question or concern. I cannot believe how amazing the results are and it has only been less than six weeks. The recovery process has been rough, but so worth it. I only wish I had...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty - Chicago, IL

I broke my nose playing soccer in high school and it became slightly crooked. I wanted to straighten my septum as well as make a few cosmetic changes. The tip was very boxy and wide, which always bothered me. After the surgery my bridge is narrower and straight and my tip is more refined. I am only a little over one week post-op, and am loving the results already!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

33 Yrs Old, 2 Kids (1 Wk Post Op BA with Abdominal Scar Revisions) - Chicago, IL

I loved my entire experience with Dr. Christopolous! She was very informative, attentive and down to earth. She truly cares about giving each patient the best results possible and was open to my concerns and suggestions. My results exceeded my expectations. I would recommend her to others. 5 stars!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

34 Yr Old in Need of a Lift and Augment - Chicago, IL

I'd had a breast reduction when I was 18 yrs old and was at a heavier weight. Fifteen years later (no kids tho), I've lost about 30#'s and my breasts had really deflated/aged. I was seeking a very small augmentation just to have my clothes fit better. Dr Christopoulos was very caring & understanding of my desire to not go too large. Because of the state of my breasts from my previous surgery...
