5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Great Breast Augmentation - Chicago, IL

Doctor Johnson is very kind and I got just what I wanted. I saw several plastic surgeons and was never treated better than by Doctor Johnson ans his staff. I love my new breast. Discussing my augmentation with him was very easy and he was less than another doctor who only spent a minet with me and said he knew what I should have. Doctor Johnson listened to me and I thank him for giving the result that I wanted like I wanted it to be.

Finally Got my Husband on Board - Chicago, IL

It took a little work but I finally got my husband on board and had my augmentation with Dr. Johnson. I wanted boobs since like forever and can't say this really changed my life but I feel great with my decision. I went with the moderate silicone implants and even my husband is happy with them. It not like he didn't love my anyway but with my implants I look great. Really glad he went...

I'm Six Months Healed and Everone Thinks I'm Real! - Chicago, IL

I chose doctor Johnson after he spent the time to show me all the different breast implants as everone else seemed to have just a HP implant. I know they look real good in pictures and I wanted a more round and fake look. But after all the consultations I felt the moderate plus was right for me. I love my choice! I was kind of swollen for the first six weeks, but now after six months no one...

Fantastic Breast Augmenation from Dr. Johnson - Chicago, IL

Dr, Johnson is patient and easy to talk to. Others tried to sell me things I didn't want and Dr. Johnson was the one to listen to me. I saw several doctors before seeing Dr. Johnson for breast implants. I couldn't believe the difference. Everyone in his office was warm and caring. Only his office seemed concerned about what I wanted to look like. Others were very pushy about high profile breast implants but Dr. Johnson took the time to show me all the options, and his nurse worked with me to find my look so my result was just what I wanted. I didn't want to be showy or have anything bigger than a small C and his office told me it was just fine as the pictures all show others choices, so why not have my own. My procedure was in his office facility, very private and nice. I wish I had seen him first!

Love my New Boobs - Chicago, IL

Looked at alot of websites and doctor Johnson was the best. Meeting him was just what I expected and the whole process was very easy. After I met with him and explained what I wanted Doctor Johnson and the nurse worked to get to know just what I was after. I wanted gel and a D and out and feeling pretty good after just two days. Doctor Johnson was great. A definate worth it.

Happy with Facelift Results - Des Plaines, IL

I wanted to have a younger looking appearance. I had a "turkey neck" which made me look older than my actual age. I have loved my results, and have become a botox patient, and am seeing the esthetician there for regular facials.   The O.R. on Site Was Definite Positive, Because It Allowed Me the Privacy That I Was Looking For.

Great Doctor - Des Plaines, IL

I wanted a nice butt, and i wanted to get my thighs, stomach, back, and arms lipoed anyway so i just did it all at the same time. He lipoed my inner thighs, stomach, back, and arms. He did a great job on the lipo. Everything looks soo perfect and it has only been 2 months. At the same time i got my lips done and they look natural and not fake at all. I told him exactly how i wanted my lips...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

Finally Having my Breast Implants Removed After 16 Years of Being Unhappy with Them - Chicago, IL

I had saline breast implants placed in 1995 (Mentor, saline, textured, under the muscle, 325cc overfilled to 375cc). I was very young and not mature enough to make such a life-altering decision. My surgeon did not explain to me that I would be in for a lifetime of surgeries. At the time, saline was the only option available. They did not feel soft or natural, but in hindsight I am thankful I...
