I'm 4.5 months post-op from an abdominoplasty, breast augmentation, breast lift, and liposuction below buttocks & lower back and have had AMAZING results. I am thin and in good shape. But after gaining 50-60 pounds with each of my three pregnancies and breastfeeding 3 children, my skin had been stretched to its limit. I researched over 100 different doctors, met with 12 individually, and finally selected Dr. Platis. I am thrilled that I did. He helped to repair my body while enhancing other parts. He really listened to me and worked hard to create the results I desired. I wanted breasts that looked natural and were not too large. All of my friends have commented on how natural my breasts look and now want them. I wanted a stomach with a low scar that would also show my muscle tone. I started to see definition after 6 weeks. My scar is so low that I can wear almost any bikini bottom. From a recovery standpoint, the first 2 weeks were tough, but then I recovered very quickly. I was working out again after 6 weeks. I probably asked Dr. Platis a million questions pre and post-op. It didn't matter the time of day or the question, Dr. Platis has always been beyond patient and has regarded me with respect and understanding. Some surgeons often are unreachable and regard their patients with an air of superiority. Not Dr. Platis. Kate helped me with scheduling and other logistics regarding the surgery. She is one of the nicest people I have ever met and super accommodating. Lisa works the reception desk and is wonderful, as well. If you live anywhere in the Chicagoland area, I highly recommend Dr. Platis.
