Testimonials from the Plastic Surgeon's Office

Words can not express the thanks and gratitude I feel toward these professional people. Dr. Placik is not only a great plastic surgeon but a caring and personable individual who treats you like family. I walked into his office for a consultation feeling very upset and worried about a previous augmentation surgery I had about two years prior with horrible results and hardening of my right breast. He took the time to explain to me what had occurred and what he could do to correct the problem. Well needless to say two weeks later after my surgery, my breasts look like they did when I was sixteen. Dr. Placik, I thank god for bringing me to you and pray for your continued success, health, and happiness. ~E. P. (Plastic Surgery Patient)

I couldn't be more pleased with my results! Dr. Placik is an excellent surgeon who's also very personable, and he really seems to care. I don't know if you realize how important that is, but it really does make a world of difference! Having the kind of procedure done that I had is so incredibly personal and at times somewhat embarrassing. However Dr. Placik and his staff made me feel very comfortable. ~A. S. (Plastic Surgery Patient)

Absolutely the BEST! Thank you for making me look great and feel fantastic. ~M. P. (Plastic Surgery Patient)

Support Breast Cancer Research

I am a thirty six year old mother of two. I had breast enlargement surgery with silicone implants when I was twenty-two to improve my body image and self esteem. After fourteen years and breast feeding two children I developed severe hardening in my breasts known as capsular contracture.

Dr. Placik was the second doctor I had a consultation with for this second surgery. I had my initial consultation with Dr. Placik in 1999, I was very impressed with his professionalism, he was both informative and personable. I delayed having surgery for personal reasons however I knew I would have the surgery eventually and I knew after the initial consultation that I wanted Dr. Placik to perform the surgery.

On June 8, 2002, I finally had the surgery to remove my silicone breast implants and the scar tissue that was causing the hardening and I had them replaced with saline breast implants. The first two days after surgery were uncomfortable but after that I was back to my normal routine pretty quickly.

Initially, I dreaded the thought of having this second surgery but Dr. Placik and his caring staff made it a positive experience. My breasts were now larger and more natural looking and feeling than they have ever been. I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the results of my surgery. I couldn't be happier with my decision.

If I had to make this decision again I would choose Dr. Placik. I would be happy to give a recommendation to any of your future patients so please feel free to share this letter with anyone who is considering having breast enlargement surgery. Thanks again to Dr. Placik and your staff. ~E. (Plastic Surgery Patient)

Dr. Otto Placik and his team are wonderful to work with especially when I had questions and concerns. Thank you! ~R. A. (Plastic Surgery Patient)

Support Breast Cancer Research

My experience with Dr. Placik and his nursing staff was extremely positive.

I decided to have breast augmentation after nursing 3 of my children. I wanted to feel more feminine and shapely. I have to say...nothing but smiles with my results. Dr. Placik is an artistic surgeon and demonstrated such sincere interest when responding to my questions. He and his staff handled all of my concerns and fears and educated me about the procedure. I knew what to expect and was overjoyed with my recovery.

It was truly a wonderful experience (except for the first 30 minutes in recovery) and I would Definitely do it again, as long as I had Dr. Placik and his team. He is a remarkable surgeon whom I trust and would refer the world to. If you want the best of the best...see Dr. Placik... I can't say enough! ~A. J. (Plastic Surgery Patient)

This has been an all around great experience. Everyone took their time with me and was very friendly and patient. ~W. W. (Plastic Surgery Patient)

Support Breast Cancer Research

I am a healthcare professional and a registered nurse who has known Dr. Placik for 16 years. I first met Dr. Placik when he was a resident at Northwestern and while doing a rotation at Evanston Hospital. I always found him warm and friendly. Years later after 3 children, I consulted with Dr. Placik with a problem with my youngest and he did a corrective procedure on her face. A year ago I decided to consult Dr. Placik about breast augmentation. I couldn't have felt more comfortable and secure with my decision. The results were FANTASTIC!

Dr. Placik is a phenomenal surgeon who treated me with the utmost respect and genuine concern. I have referred my closet friends, family members and peers to Dr. Placik and will continue to be his biggest and best fan! ~S. A. (Plastic Surgery Patient and Parent)
