Dr. Patel's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Patel "Dr. Patel is a double-board certified, Mayo Clinic-trained plastic surgeon who excels at combining cutting-edge surgical and laser techniques with his aesthetic vision to provide outstanding, natural appearing results. Dr. Patel said, "Plastic surgery is a field that really allows you to connect with the patient on a personal level to help them achieve their final goal. It's such a joy to become friends with my patients as well as provide care as their physician." Dr. Patel was inspired to become a plastic surgeon because of the wide range of individuals he has the opportunity to care for, from newborns to seniors. He specializes in abdominoplasty/tummy tuck, breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, and breast reconstruction, as well as skin cancer and melanoma treatment, facial trauma reconstruction, and scar revision."

Left my face horrendously scarred and mis shapen. Neck has dog ears - a sign of negligence. Stay away if you do not want to be horribly disfigured. He refuses to revise and refund the money he literally stole from you. I cannot even get a complete copy of my file.
Westchester, IL |
Had to have 3 surgeries in total instead of 1. He comes across skilled but my results prove otherwise. He might be good for boobs or lipo but stay away for face. Go to a facial specialist.

Negligent doctor. Full case details to follow.

Dr. Patel is the best Doctor I have ever had for various reasons. His "bedside" manner shines each time I have an appointment. He doesn't rush appointments, very personable with a genuine concern for my well being. He's performed three surgeries on me each turning out flawless. Dr. Patel is a surgeon who understands the gravity of the job he is undertaking, but has a great sense of humor which I feel is an imperative trait, too. Without a doubt, he is a highly skilled double board cert. surgeon.

Highly recommend!

I am couple of months out from my breast implants and lift and I am extremely pleased with my results. My lift scars very fine and hard to see even though it's only been couple of months. Now I am considering getting my tummy tuck to get rid of my loose skin and fat from by belly and hips area. Thank you Dr. Patel for your wonderful care. I highly recommend Dr. Patel if you are considering plastic surgery in Chicago area.

My husband and I went for a consultation. Dr. Patel spent a lot of time listening to our concerns and explaining our treatment options. He even won over my husband who usually is skeptical and hard on doctors. I chose to do tummy tuck and Brazilian butt lift with fat transfer. My husband had his eyelids done and neck fat and loose skin treated with lipo-scultpure? technique and laser tightening. The surgery turned out really well for both of us. We are both very happy with our results.

We're all looking to age well and look younger..right? Well at least in my case .. I was. My friends recommended a really popular plastic surgeon with Lifestyle facelift (I will not mention his name but he has done my aunts surgeries) anyways so I decided to get facelift & neck lift. long story short I had complications and did not get good results. Dr.Patel performed my revision surgery. He is hands down one of the best in Chicago area! My Face and neck look natural and not fake! Thank you!
in Lombard, IL |
I chose Dr. Patel after researching cosmetic surgeons in my area. His education, experience and reviews are all excellent. I met his staff and they are extremely friendly, helpful, and encouraging with me. Dr Patel does a great job talking about the procedure, why I wanted to have it done (rhinoplasty), and what to expect afterwards. The procedure, results, and follow up visits were all exactly as he described. I started to feel like family during my follow up visits which speaks volumes.
in Barrington, IL |
Had facelift and ended up with one ear longer than the other and my pierced earrings went in different directions Revisions are like pulling teeth you'll get the yes we will fix it but after two/three tries I am done He does that purposely to wear you down Patel even told me the last time that I would have to wait 10 years to fix the ear properly Funny I went to another surgeon who fixed it within two weeks and he did it correctly Never reimbursed for my expense by patel
in Genoa, IL |
Dr Patel showed genuine concern for my problem, explained all that was involved in the surgery and recovery process. His staff at both facilities were always helpful and cheerful and well knowledged. Dr Patel never hesitated to answer all my questions promptly and honestly.
