Tummy Tuck with Lipo 55 Year Old - Oak brook, Illinois

I thought about getting a tummy tuck for years,...

I thought about getting a tummy tuck for years, but was convinced I could lose the weight on my own. After years of diligent trying, I finally realized I was fighting a losing battle, particularly with the loose skin. I had a few consults with different doctors -- all good, but the moment I met with Dr. Gutowski, I knew he was the doctor for me. He has a wonderful demeanor that put me at ease immediately. Other patients and his staff refer to him as an "artist," and they are correct. He knew exactly what I needed and took the time to address all of my questions (many of which were anxiety-driven!). I had a No Drain Tummy Tuck including lipo of the abdomen, love handles/flanks, back & bra rolls & mans pub. The recovery was rough. I'm 55 and live alone, and that first week was difficult. What made it tolerable was knowing that Dr. G and his staff were always available (and I mean always!). Dr. G gave me his cell phone number and his personal email. If I had the slightest concern he encouraged me to text him, which I did. Knowing that I had that kind of access made all the difference in the world. The difference with my body and my life is unbelievable. I never realized just how much my tummy role (and excess skin) had held me back. He did a beautiful job and I couldn't be happier. Because of his talent, his experience, thoroughness, skill and his wonderful aftercare, I can now live the life I always dreamed of. I have far more energy, my clothes actually fit, and I'm active in ways I couldn't have been before. I recommend Dr. Gutowski very highly. In fact, I actually had him do additional procedures because he's just that good (I'll post reviews of those separately).
Chicago Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Gutowski is one of the best plastic surgeons in the Chicago area (if not the best). His skills are unmatched, but it's his kindness, availability and support that set him apart. He listens to his patients and delivers on his promises! He always made time for me and never made me feel as though I was a burden.
