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.

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.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Happy with Facelift Results - Des Plaines, IL

Dr. J is a real artist! From my initial consult, to my final follow up, I was cared for as if I was his only patient! I was never rushed, and I felt as if his entire staff was behind me. I booked my surgery on the day of my consult because I knew he was the surgeon for me!

5 out of 5 stars Brazilian Butt Lift

Great Doctor - Des Plaines, IL

Dr. J did an amazing job on my nose. It has only been 4 months and you can't see any scars on or around my nose. I also had my breast done by him and there are no visible scars at all. They look and feel soo natural that I even forget that i had them done. Even people that touch them think they are real thats how good of a job he did on them. He did such a good job on both of those procedures i went back to him for a brazillian butt lift and it looks amazing! I recomend him to everyone that i meet that wants work done because i know he takes care of his patients and always gives you a price and will never add anything in addition to the quote he gave you as i have recently experienced that problem with another doctor. He just does an amazing job at making you look perfect without looking fake or like you've had work done. You will look natural if you go to him. The whole office is great actualy and make the procedure as good of an experience as they possibly can. In the recovery room they are there with you giving you hot tea and making sure your ok and call you at home to make sure there are no unexpected things happening.

Amazing Care Throughout the Entire Process - Des Plaines, IL

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

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

Dr. Johnson removed my 16-year old breast implants and I was certain he was the Dr. for me from the point of my first consultation until the actual surgery. He is highly skilled at breast implant removal and also very kind and reassuring, taking the time to listen to and answer all questions. I am so pleased with my surgery results. Care like this makes me very happy to be a patient of Dr. Johnson's.
