5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Extremely Satisfied with my Decision. - Orland Park, IL

Dr. Gelman is a great plastic surgeon. He made me feel comfortable and very happy with my decision. I am still in the healing process but I could not be happier. Him and Laura are amazing and I would recommend them to anyone. My breast augmentation has gained my confidence level immensely! It was worth the money and I cannot wait until I am completely healed.

5 out of 5 stars Arm Lift

Arm Lift - the First Part of a Massive Overhaul - Frankfort, IL

I have always had larger arms. I became overweight in jr high and have been obese since then. I had gastric by-pass 5 years ago and lost 150 lbs. I felt great but my body looked horrible. I became depressed because I felt like I looked worse than I did before I lost the weight. Having surgery seemed like it was too expensive to even consider. I have slowly gained 50 lbs back in the 5 years...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Mommy of 2 Breastfed Children.

I have gone on many consultations, and I have finally found the surgeon to do my procedure! I am all booked for November 20th!! I am going with 550cc round, smooth, silicone unders. I am somewhat worried about size, but I needed the volume to help with some of my sagging. I do not scar well, so I decided to go with a bigger implant to avoid a lift. I am so excited for today. I am very...

Finally - Orland Park, IL

I had gastric bypass 7 years ago. It was a the best decision I ever made. It gasses me when people say surgery is the easy way out. Because from what I read on this site, everyone has experienced what it's like not to be able to naturally lose whatever you had surgery for. Currently I am left with a belly flap and sagging skin. So this is the first step towards relieving my body of the...
