When I originally met with Dr. Platis I went in for a breast lift/augmentation consult. I explained that I wanted my breasts to be lifted, but not bigger. After examining me he explained that would be no problem. He would do a lift with a small implant to add the fullness but I would remain a size D. Nine months later I'm a DD and still very saggy which was exactly the opposite that I wanted. When I met with him to share my concerns he of course told me he thought they looked great and I should give it some more time. He offered to "fix it" and he would charge me nothing but I would be responsible for the surgery center, implants, etc. So around $7000 later I could have them done again. I declined. I am super bummed and dissapointed.

It took me minutes to choose Dr. James Platis as my plastic surgeon after My consultation. I made an appointment after talking to some of his coworkers who raved about his knowledge, surgical precision and perfectionist quality. Coincidentally, I met some of his clients, they also raved about his skills and bedside manners, and they were extremely satisfied with the results of the surgeries he performed on them. So I had both tummy tuck and breast reduction surgeries done with fantastic results. I am constantly receiving compliments. I am told that I look 10 yrs. younger with the way he shaped my body, and i notices that tHe possibilities of wearing different styles are endless. I recommend him to everybody I know.

Dr. Platis was the only doctor I called and consulted with in regards to having an abdominoplasty with liposuction done. I had heard he was the one to go to and I can say without a doubt??absolutely TRUE! Within 4 months of the consult, I was having a ??full tummy tuck?? done that I thought wouldn??t even be possible- due to how ??large?? my middle section was at the time. Now at 11 weeks post op- I can say- I??m absolutely amazed, thrilled and satisfied with my results and DO highly recommend Dr. Platis to anyone!! I know there are cosmetic surgeons in this area that may be slightly cheaper, however it all comes down to, you get what you pay for- and choosing Dr. Platis is worth every cent. Dr. Platis definitely was blessed with miracle hands! I also, had the pleasure of meeting Kate at the office in Merrillville and she is such a pleasure as well! The office is so welcoming, not that ??stagnant?? feel at all and Dr. Platis?? bedside manner is impeccable! I will definitely be going back to Dr. Platis when I decide to move forward with my next procedure.

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.

I first met Dr. Platis approx. 6 years ago when I was looking to get a breast augmentation. I had done my research thoroughly as I was not new to Plastic Surgery and new what to look for. I had one previous consultation with a recommended doctor and did not like him at all. Met with another who was so-to-say "known" as the "Boob Doctor" of Chicago, and what a BOOB he turned out to be, he missed my appointment and then called to offer a discount, NO Thank you. Then I went to see Dr. Platis; upon my arrival I was greeted by his wonderful staff, they offered me water and made me feel comfortable, they had me fill out my information. As I went to sit down after turning in my papers not a second went by when Dr. Platis presented himself to me and said he was ready, unheard of for doctors; impressed and an immediate star. I told him that I had had lipo in the past and was looking to get a breast augmentation. He was thorough and very attentive to my questions and concerns, he advised me on a natural approach, the tear drop, saline implant: PERFECT. My husband wanted to meet with him for a second consultation as he was not there on the first and Dr. Platis was more than accommodating. I went ahead with my procedure; he was there when I recovered, he called to check on my well being, he took care of me as if I were family. I could not be more happy today with my results. My breast look amazing, they don't look like implants, they look natural. I have seen Dr.Platis for a revised liposuction on my hips and thighs and a tummy tuck, ALL done impeccably. I would NEVER think of referring anyone to anyone else other than Dr.Platis, he is truly a man of Character. I look better today at 45 than I did 15 years ago and feel better with who I am, Thank You Dr. Platis

I can't say enough about Dr Platis and his staff. I made sure I did all my research and got referrals from 2 others that had prior surgery done from Dr Platis. I did get an initial consult within 2 weeks in his Indiana office. At my initial consult Dr Platis spent a half hour with my husband and I. He answered all our questions ,concerns and was informative on what would be my best options for the results I wanted. The pre op surgery consult was the same and he spent just as much time answering any more questions I might of had. I might add his office lady was wonderful and polite. The whole pre op surgery process went quite smoothly and the Surgery Center staff was wonderful too. The day of the surgery Dr Platis again took the time to answer anymore questions and took the time to explain what was about to happen. After surgery he did call me at home to check on me. I had called him twice during the healing process with some concerns and he was very understanding and returned my calls promptly. In the beginning of this whole process I was in search of a Plastic Surgeon that was a perfectionist and I must say Dr Platis is just that. The technique he uses for the tummy tuck that some other doctors don't use are by far better and less painful. I am 3 mos post op and my body is beautiful. My tummy and breast look as if they are 20 again. The best advice I can give is you get what you pay for. Even though another doctor might be cheaper make sure you check on what you are getting for your money. I would highly recommend Dr Platis if you are considering a Tummy Tuck, Muscle Repair, Brease Lift, Breast Augmentation or Lipo. My results are amazing.

Dr. Platis and his staff made me feel so comfortable at my consultation. I saw quite a few different surgeons once I decided to have surgery and his office was so much better in every way than all the others. He listened to me and took the time to really understand my concerns. I am thrilled with my results and will be a lifelong patient.

I am 5 2 and weighed 110 pounds at surgery. I was told I was the ideal liposuction patient. It's not meant for weight loss, but sculpture Dr. Platis said. He was my second consult. My initial consult was with a WELL respected Dr. and he said buttock lipo it difficult because it can create a double butt and for my size he didn't wouldn't recommend it. An ETHICAL and HONEST plastic surgeon. So, of course I I want a second opinion. I consulted Dr. Platis, who, of couse, said "Sure we can do it, no problem". It was a done deal 3 days later. I was very large for 2 weeks due to the swelling, I couldn't even fit into my "really fat jeans". I was concerned, but also assured I would be pleased once the swelling went down. I returned for my visit 6 months post surgery. I lost 7 pounds during the 3 months leading up to my appointment by working out 4 days a week once I was able to exercise again. On my follow up he tried to take credit saying I looked great. Wow, what are the odds of that coming out of his mouth. I was not happy, I didn't go down a single size in my clothes which the only reason I wanted surgery in the first place. It was a little larger than the rest of me. To that, he said my butt looked great and he would NOT be doing anything more for me. He then got hostile and left the room and made another appt 6 months later. Upon my return I was told there was nothing else to do, was saggy the look he was going for? If so, I would have passed. I'm not disputing the fact that I had surgery, I had bruising, pain and $5000 less in my bank account to prove it. I guess I was NOT the ideal canditate afterall. Either I wasn't large enough for him to do surgery or he did a bad job and needs to fine turn. Which he said he does at times. I now have my grandma's saggy 72 year old butt. Can I trade up for her beautiful smile or her need to give to every charity that calls on her. Where do you find "double butted" jeans? I looked at Barney's, I've got nothing? Call me
