Breast Cosmetic Surgery for Chicago Area Women

Men and women from Naperville, Joliet, and the greater Chicago area turn to cosmetic surgery because they want to look their best. Breast enhancement procedures, for example, offer women the chance to sculpt their bodies in a way that helps them feel more sexy, shapely, and feminine. Breast augmentation can be an effective option for women who feel that their breasts are too small or have significant breast asymmetry. Dr. Rios offers his breast augmentation patients a number of options in terms of implant type, size, and shape, as well as surgical techniques to minimize scarring. Breast augmentations can be combined with breast lift procedures to create a much more attractive, youthful appearance and position.

Dr. Rios understands that you have clear goals when it comes to breast augmentation: you want an attractive result and a comfortable, speedy recovery. Unlike some surgeons, he is able to deliver on both of these objectives. He has performed hundreds of successful augmentations using both saline and silicone gel implants and helps his patients recover quickly by using advanced surgical methods that minimize bruising, bleeding and swelling. Dr. Rios is a firm believer that when performed with artistry and skill, breast augmentations require very little downtime. The vast majority of Dr. Rios’s patients do not need to wear surgical support bras or have surgical drains placed after their procedures.

Can you really have it all when it comes to breast augmentation? For Dr. Rios, the answer is clearly “yes.” Remember that your surgeon’s skill plays a significant role in the quality of your results and the ease of your recovery. Dr. Rios believes that his advanced augmentation methods give you the best of both worlds: an attractive, natural-looking result and a comfortable recovery that takes only a few days.

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular procedures at Rios & Lapinski Plastic Surgery & Dermatological Institute, but Dr. Rios also performs a full range of other enhancement procedures. For instance, on the other end of the spectrum is breast reduction. Many women come to Dr. Rios’ plastic surgery practice near Naperville because their overly large breasts are preventing them from living active, normal lives and they want to learn more about breast reduction. Women with disproportionately large breasts may suffer from a number of physical and even emotional problems. Large breasts can be painful and can prevent a woman from participating in many physical activities.

Body Contouring by Dr. Rios

In addition to breast procedures, Dr. Rios offers Chicago men and women a number of cosmetic surgery procedures to help shape and contour virtually every area of the body. Liposuction is a highly popular procedure to remove fat cells that are resistant to diet and exercise. This body contouring procedure can slim and shape areas such as the thighs, stomach, knees, hips, and even the face and neck. Liposuction is not a weight loss tool, but can be an effective option to help people who maintain a healthy weight eliminate stubborn pockets of excess fat.

Another popular body contouring procedure at Rios & Lapinski Plastic Surgery & Dermatological Institute is tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). It is unfortunately common for men and women to develop flabbiness and loose skin around the abdominal area as factors such as time and pregnancy begin to take a toll on the body. During a tummy tuck, excess skin is removed from the abdominal area and the abdominal muscles are tightened. A tummy tuck can help you achieve a more fit, flattering profile by toning your midsection.
