5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Completely, Totally Happy with my TT

Explains everything from beginning to end, very supportive staff both in pre-op and recovery. Very understanding nurses as well.

5 out of 5 stars Tumescent Liposuction

Finally Got my Lipo - Elk Grove, IL

My doctor was very social and didn't rush me out of his office when I had a million questions. His office manager, Sue, was also very helpful. I wish that he would have stayed a bit longer after the lipo to fill me in, but I know it wouldn't have done much good as I wasn't very coherent and I'm sure he had other patients to get with.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

Should Have Known Better - Chicago, IL

I am 50 years old and getting ready to go through a 3rd major breast surgery, hopefully the last, to have my implants removed. I should have known better, in that my first surgery in 1984 was a breat reduction at the age of 23. As a teenager, and in college, I had the most enormous boobs. They were horrible. As a college graduation gift my parents helped me get a reduction, which was 90%...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation 1989/DZ - Rosemont, IL

Dr. K performed Breast Augmentation on me in 1989 in Houston, Tx..He did a fabulous job. My breasts looked great. He was such a great Doctor by taking time to talk and explain everything to me and he also had such a good bedside manner! I will go back to him for all my plastic surgery needs! Exceptional Doctor!!

1 out of 5 stars Lifestyle Lift

Not what I expected

On 12-28-13 I went for my first consultation to the LSL Center in Downers Grove Illinois . I was so excited because this was after all going to be what they call " A life changing experience " and indeed it was but in a horrible way . The assistant Monica Alexander convinced me that this procedure would transform me into a younger looking woman and she stood behind me as I sat looking at...

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Great results

Was so helpful when I say I saw the results the next day after my surgery he did a great job and I'm still seeing results he made sure I was comfortable and explained everything to beginning to end. And I can't forget about Linda the nurse that was also in the operation room she was overly nice definitely well recommended Kagan he gets the job done.
