5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

I decided to have my breast done after having two kids, I lacked the fullness I once had. I am compleatly satisfied with my choice of having Dr. Paresi at Inside Look MD perform my surgery. The staff is extremely nice and comforting and the location is clean. Dr. Paresi had me at ease from my initial consultation through my 6 week post op care. My results are fantastic and I would highly...

35 Year Old Ideal Implants and Lift - Downers Grove, IL

I am scheduled to have my breast lift and augmentation next week Tuesday! I'm super scared, nervous and excited. I've read too many horror stories on this site and I always end up second guessing myself. Then I'll run into a really awesome review with amazing results and just pray that will be me too! I'm currently a 34D but super saggy. Breast fed 2 kids for 6 months each and I've...

5 out of 5 stars Chin Liposuction

Would have my submental lift/chin liposuction again

I recently had a submental lift/ chin lipo with Dr. Paresi at Inside Look MD. I was initially nervous but Dr. Paresi showed concern for me the day of my procedure and six weeks later I am satisfied with the outcome! I'd do it again. Very happy with my improved profile.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

29 Yr Old Breast Lift with Implants - Barbados

Dr. Paresi is very nice and very professional, he made me comfortable and confident that I was going to get the look that I wanted. From my interactions with him I became confident that I had chosen a great doctor and from my results it couldn't be more accurate. I had consultations with many doctors but from the time I spoke to him I did not seek any further.his work is excellent and precise and I would recommend him to anyone who is seeking to get cosmectic surgery.

Dr. Paresi is very kind, professional, and he listens to your concerns.

5 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

40 Year Old, Smart Lipo Tighs/saddlebags - Downers Grove, IL

I highly recommend Dr. Paresi. It is very obvious that he is amazing at what he does! I had an amazing experience with Dr. Paresi. I'm 40, 5'7", 125 pounds, not overweight but always had those nasty saddlebags. They would not go away no matter what I tried. So I finally decided to do smart lipo. I never had any procedures before and I was petrified. Reading reviews on this site didn't help (even the smallest procedures sounded scary to me - pain, swelling, bruising, etc.). Well, with Dr Paresi, I was in for a surprise - at consultation he sounded confident and acted like this is not a big deal at all. And it wasn't. I read previously "get someone to drive you, take at least a week before you try to get back to "normal", have painkillers ready" etc. So, I did all that, I was prepared. Procedure took about 45 minutes, wasn't painful at all. I had my husband drive me home and was prepared to spend the day in bed (it's a surgery after all). It still wasn't painful but I thought it's anestetic, it will ware off and then the fun will begin. An hour later, still nothing, I was perfectly fine and bored so I went shopping. Still waiting for the pain to hit, I took one painkiller before I went to bed that night as a precaution. Slept fine, woke up still without the pain (accept to the touch but nothing major). And that was it. It was only better from then on. My dentist visits are more unpleasant than this was! I had some swelling and bruising but with arnica that went away really fast. As for results, I could see some right away. Only regret I have is that I didn't do it sooner. As for Dr. Paresi, he's obviously at top of this game. I am so glad I picked him after very long research. I have to say, I was little skeptical about the high ratings he had (ALL ratings are great, I mean, who has that?) but now I understand, totally deserved! Staff was also great and price very reasonable. Highly recommended. Oh, yeah, the only thing I hated was the garment I had to wear - it made my butt look like Kardashian's LOL

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

43 Year Old Mom of Two - Downers Grove, IL

Dr. Paresi is a great guy that will not do anything to you if he does not think it will look good or have a great outcome. It can be hard to hear no, but it is better than someone being dishonest and receiving bad results.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

36 Year Old with 3 Kids- Best Decision!

Dr. Paresi explained all details about tummy tuck and liposuction and answered all my questions. I would highly recommend him to all my friends and family!

5 out of 5 stars Lower Face Lift

67 Years Old and Needing Help

Over the last few years I've noticed that my jaw line and neck were sagging and making me feel older. I wanted to improve how I looked but was nervous about choosing the right doctor. After checking into several doctors, I decided to go with Dr. Robert Paresi. He was so approachable and explained all of my options in a way I could understand. I decided to have a lower face and neck lift...
