Are you a patient of Ricardo Izquierdo, MD?
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Excellent Bedside Manner, knowledgeable, took his time to explain things and educate me. I could tell he really cared about me as an individual. I even had a second consult because I had more questions and wanted to add a procedure, instead of disregarding a young (21) patient who many would have dismissed assuming I didn't have the money or was being flakey with a 2nd consult, I received 100% of his attention for the second consult. Especially know and working with so many Plastic Surgeons as I have now, I am incredibly impressed with his level of care. The whole office was like that, Dr. I only provides and employs the best!
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
Dr. Ricardo Izquierdo is an extremely patient person, and a great listener. He answered all my questions, and I did not feel rushed. I will return for more procesures. My stomach looks like I am in my 20's, after two C-sections and RNY weight loss. Besides tummy tuck, I also had butt lift - fantastic for 50+ years!
5 out of 5 stars Arm Lift
Dr. Izquierdo met all of my criteria for a successful, experienced plastic surgeon. I was looking for a plastic surgeon who had over 20 years of experience, was very patient and would answer all of my questions. I found Ricardo Izquierdo who is located in Oak Brook and he was the right Plastic Surgeon for me. I'm very happy with the results of my procedure and Highly Recommend Dr. Izquierdo!
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants
I would recommend Dr. Izquierdo to EVERYONE! He is a PHENOMENAL surgeon who really took care of me. I have been to him twice and he really cared about how I felt and how I looked. Overall, I give him the highest star rating and I am truly happy with the outcome of my breast augmentation. 5 STARS Pamela

He doesn't care if his patients are happy or not. Does not believe in perfection.
1 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Dr. Ricardo Izquierdo performed open rhinoplasty on me, his suture closure technique is god aweful on me! Personally,i wouldn't recommend him to my worst enemy. I should have ran away fast from his office. Dr. Ricardo izquierdo left me with a devastating horrible nose job, and my nose was left dented, unable to breath, and has scars!!! He dismisses my concerns and that is why I gave him a low rating. on me, he did not have an artistic eye to obtain beautiful results! (my opinions and experience are protected by the 1st amendment of the united states, these are solely my experiences with dr. ricardo izquierdo performing rhinoplasty on me, in which a devastating outcome and experienced entails me to freely write what i experienced! dr Ricardo izquierdo lied to me and put inorganic materials in my nose, he says he uses natural cartilage , but i beg to differ as he(dr izquierdo) put a "Gortex" implant in my nose without my knowledge or consent!!!!
5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift
I met with him 9 months prior to the surgery, my husband and I knew from the 1st appointment that he was the one that would be doing the face and neck lift. I had a face and neck lift last Jan.2017 I couldn't be happier with the results. Dr. Izquierdo is very qualified surgeon and I would recommend him to everyone. FYI, I am 65 years old and I look better than most 45 yr old women.
