As a beginner to any cosmetic procedures I was pretty nervous before my appointment. I saw Cece and I could not be more happy with the results! Cece, knowing that I was nervous, explained in detail everything she is going to do and took her time to answer the many questions I had for her. She made me feel comfortable and I left very satisfied with my results. I have seen her many times since. I would definitely recommend this clinic.

I have been to the Chicago Cosmetic Institute twice to see Lauren for lip fillers.I can't express just how happy I am with my results! She was able to create the exact shape and pout that I was looking for. Lauren is very gentle and precise with her work. Honestly, I'm hooked and cannot wait to go back to see her again!

I had such an amazing experience at the clinic. I had Dysport injections with Cecilia Lee and could not be happier with the results. She took excellent care of me and made me feel very comfortable with the procedure. Everyone I interacted with at the clinic was very professional and courteous. I will certainly be returning. 😊

I keep coming back because I love this place! I always leave more educated about my skin and different procedures that are on the market. CCI is very innovative and keeps up with the latest trends in the industry. I had a chance to meet Shari who did both of my cool sculpting procedures. I’m very pleased with her professionalism, patience and of course my results. Shari is very detailed and wants to understand your concerns and wants first. The consultation is one on one with her, where she draws on your skin with a template so that you may approve her understanding of your vision. She is practical and efficient which makes the procedure, not only painless but also go as smoothly and as effective as possible. I can’t wait to do more treatments there!!!

I’ve been debating on getting injectibles for about a year now and I finally booked an appointment with CCI’s nurse practioner Lauren at the end of November 2018. Lauren is so personable and funny which made me relax and enjoy the visit. I wound up choosing Dysport after Lauren explained the different options and am loving the results! Lauren is very competent & passionate about what she does - she takes her work seriously and really does look out for her patients best interests! I would recommend Lauren & CCI to all my family & friends! Can’t wait to go back!

Lauren F. has done my botox twice now and I LOVE IT. I’ve been getting botox for 3 years and have tried a few places around the city - but will never go anywhere else! Lauren took the time to listen to what I wanted, things that I’ve had done in the past what I liked and didn’t like, and it’s best results I’ve ever had. My eyebrow arch is perfect, there are no wrinkles and minimal movement - which is what I love. And it’s completely 100% natural looking. I’ve been following her on social and so now I am going back to get some filler in my cheeks. She’s the best in Chicago!

Found Chicago Cosmetic Institute via Google search to have an unslightly spot to be checked out. Went in for a visit the same day (thank goodness they had availability) and met with Shari who not only did a great job of asking what’s my reason of visit but also answered all my questions that arise when I was sitting in the office waiting to be called as to what else they do. Shari was informative and took the time to go through each of their services and cautioned on buying hi grade skincare products online vs buying it from the dr office. I am looking forward to my next appt to take care of what I originally came in for and possibly getting additional treatments in the future.

I went for a cosmetic consultation, little nervous. Wondering whether this is something that I really want to do, or if I should wait a couple more years. Dr. Gutowski was VERY informative and put me at ease. I am looking forward to having my cosmetic procedure with Dr. Gutowski and can't wait to see the out come. Note: I was running late for the initial visit, not just 10 minutes but longer, and when I walked in the staff greeted with smiles and super professional.

I met with Shari and found her to be very professional and kind. She clearly has a great deal of knowledge in her field, and if she is not 100% sure about something, she will not hesitate to refer to the doctor. She is real and honest and will not try to sell you things that aren't necessary. The facility was very nice and clean and all of the staff seemed friendly and professional as well.

Dr. Dhaval Patel is a very friendly, honest, funny, and detailed person. He cares for your questions and wants to ensure that you are more than informed of what is forth coming. He does not sugar coat anything procedure wise and tells you it is a major surgery and to expect just that. I am 2 months post op and I can tell you after 16 years of my old body I am pleased to say even with the fresh scaring, I am pleased with my new look. Dr. Patel not only completed the tummy tuck procedure but also lipo some areas that needed it to ensure that the overall appearance was a great shape. I had lost my breast volume after breast feeding. I did to want implants so he recommended fat transfer to my breasts. What a great suggestion! I have never felt so confident in my body . I can now shop for that two piece that I have never been able to wear. This is a life changing experience and I am grateful that other patients had reviewed him as highly as they did so that I was able to make the right choice. The question is always asked was it worth it? Yes, Yes, Yes, I am a 45 year old mother who can say I do not regret this decision in my life and it was money well spent and would do it again in a heart beat. Dr. patel has changed my way of life. He cares for results and consistently asks for your feedback so that he can fix the issues. The staff from the receptionist to Nurse are over and beyond past friendly. They make the overall experience that much more easier. A++++++

I want to thank Dr. Gutowski for everything he has done for me. It took me a while to make the decision to have liposuction; I guess it was the usual concerns of having something go wrong. It took me another 6 months to find the right doctor. After reading reviews online, I finally selected Dr. Gutowski and have never regretted the decision; all of the positive reviews were true.When I met Dr. Gutowski and told him I was looking to have liposuction to reduce the love handles I have had since I was 18 years old despite being an avid runner, I was given a couple of options that would work for me. I never felt pressured to choose an option that I was not comfortable with and when we discussed what I could expect in terms of results; Dr. Gutowski was spot on. Everything I was told I would experience during the healing process to the results was true. My expectations were always met, it was amazing. For the first time in my life, I have no second thoughts with taking my shirt off while running outside. The actual procedure was not as painful as I anticipated, I was awake the entire time during my procedure, which gave me the opportunity to have a conversation with Dr. Gutowski and his staff reaffirming his genuine honesty, professionalism, and skilled attributes. After having such a wonderful experience with Dr. Gutowski, I know I will go to him again in the near future and would not hesitate to recommend him and his staff to my friends or family. I will always be grateful for this life changing experience. James
