I chose to follow in my father's footsteps into plastic surgery (which has always been "in my blood"), to advance the standards of excellence he established here in the Chicagoland area in 1974. I therefore pledge to individualize your care with the safest most effective surgical techniques available, and be with you every step of the way in your recovery to help you achieve your goals as a patient in a compassionate, ethical and professional environment.

"During a consultation, we will discuss with you your motivations to have plastic surgery, and listen to your desires and expectations. After a directed history and physical examination, we will provide you with an honest assessment as to whether you are a good candidate for the desired procedure(s). We will also carefully explain any pertinent risks or limitations of the proposed procedure, so that you may make an informed decision as to whether to proceed with surgery. Finally we realize that the decision to undergo plastic surgery is an important one. and at no time will anyone in our office pressure you into making such a decision. "
We only operate at fully accredited hospitals (Lake Forest Hospital) or outpatient/ambulatory surgical centers (HealthSouth Surgical Center of Libertyville, or the 900 North Michigan Avenue Surgical Center in Chicago) with board-certified anesthesiologists, to ensure your safety and comfort.
