This patient is a health care professional, which is particularly gratifying. We are always so pleased to get a review like this. We take the emotional side of changing a body image just as seriously as the technical side. The outside counts too. When you feel better about the way you look it boosts confidence and you feel more whole. Thank you for your kind words.

I was very impressed with Dr. Raine & his staff! He's very passionate about his work as well as he's a perfectionate at what he do! He's very humble and has a great sense of humor! His wife/Assistant is very nice and supportive of Dr. Raine & his patients! I am very pleased with my results!He's very well experienced on performing excellent work on African American women especially since our skin texture can be a challenging task due to risks of keloids!

Great Care! - Elmhurst, IL

I Found Dr. Raine through a search engine on the internet. I wanted to find a top plastic surgeon in my area and I chose Dr. Raine form the list. I gave him Five stars because of the care that I received from Him and his wonderful staff. From my very first appointment I had with Dr. Raine I was Happy with my decision to come back. Dr. Raine, his beautiful wife and staff made me feel so comfortable. I wasn't nervous about anything. I was in and out of the office with full knowledge of what I wanted and the prices. They explained everything to me and answered all of my off the wall questions. They even gave me suggestions on how I could do everything I wanted to do and save money. My surgery went great! I'm still in the recovery stage, but so far so good! I do plan to return for other procedures in the future. Highly Recommend!!!!

Amazing Results, Great Experience! - Elmhurst, IL

Through the entire process my experience with Dr Raine and his staff was wonderful! I felt very comfortable and confident with my decision to have Dr Raine perform my liposuction procedure. Dr Raine and staff took time with me to answer all my questions and educate me on the procedure. My results are amazing! I am thrilled with my new figure and the way my pants fit now. I highly recommend Dr. Raine (Raine Center for Plastic Surgery)!!
