Patient Testimonials

I always hated the idea of wearing a bra, none-the-less a padded bra. I knew it was time to do something about it. Some women may question any sort of cosmetic surgeries. They don’t know how it feels to not feel complete. Not having breasts takes away your feeling of being a woman. I wanted to regain that confidence that mother nature forgot to give me. I truly recommend Dr. Ghaderi for all the women out there who want their womanhood restored. I would do this surgery again in a heartbeat. Dr. Ghaderi is my mother nature. - Anna, 46

For years I refused to put on a swimsuit. Now I have five! - S.W., Wisconsin

I am very pleased with my results; I haven’t had a flat tummy since high school. Dr. Ghaderi has not only given me a flat stomach but has given me a whole new perspective about myself. - Kim, 46 - Chicago tummy tuck

After losing 20 lbs., I realized my body wasn’t the same anymore, especially my so-called breasts. I was always small chested and even when I had my two girls, I didn’t get much bigger, just much more saggy. So I finally got all my courage up and visited with Dr. Ghaderi. I always hated the idea of wearing a bra, none-the-less a padded bra. I knew it was time to do something about it. Some women may question any sort of cosmetic surgeries. They don’t know how it feels to not feel complete. Not having breasts takes away your feeling of being a woman. I wanted to regain that confidence that mother nature forgot to give me.

The procedure was fast, quick and less painful than I had expected. It’s quite funny. Like all types of surgeries you walk in with this feeling of the unknown. I had so many questions bottled up inside of me. Before I could even begin to ask them, Dr. Ghaderi answered them all. It felt as if he was living in my mind and knew exactly what I needed to know. Along with Dr. Ghaderi, the staff was amazing. They felt like family. They were always there for any questions before, during and after my surgery. I truly recommend Dr. Ghaderi for all the women out there who want their womanhood restored. I would do this surgery again in a heartbeat. Dr. Ghaderi is my mother nature. - Breast Augmentation Testimonial

“My experience with Dr. Ghaderi and the staff at St. Charles Plastic Surgery was terrific! I was made to feel so important - even as a new patient. Dr. Ghaderi took a significant amount of time to talk with me about the breast augmentation procedure. He promptly responded to my initial e-mail, answering all my questions - no “canned response” like I received from other doctors.

The procedure itself was easy (and Valley Ambulatory Surgery Center helped make it a good experience too). Dr. Ghaderi called my home to check on me the evening of the procedure, and again the next morning. He even offered to meet me somewhere closer to my home for my first follow-up since I live a bit of a distance from his office. (But I felt great right away - and had no problem driving to the office.)

I left on a cruise three weeks after the procedure, and was able to enjoy my “new look”! I’d recommend Dr. Ghaderi and his staff to anyone looking for a professional, caring plastic surgeon.” - Susan (Breast Augmentation)

“I was very unhappy about the appearance of my neck and jowls for quite some time. Finally, I remembered Dr. Ghaderi from a presentation at Delnor Hospital so I made an appointment to see him. At our consultation he was very concerned and honest. He gave me all the time I needed and answered all my questions. He explained the “shoulds” and “should nots” for my case. I decided to literally put my face in his hands. You can see the results for yourself. I have an entirely different attitude about myself. Everyone I meet comments about how wonderful I look. My one mistake — I should have done this years earlier. Thank you Dr. Ghaderi.” - Charmaine (Mini-Facelift)

“Not weighing more than 115 pounds, I always had a double chin. It always bothered me, expecially when photos were taken. I had gone through a difficult divorce and wanted to do something nice for myself for a change. I had seen Dr. Ghaderi’s ad in the paper from St. Charles Plastic Surgery and gave him a call.” “Once we met, he gave me his honest opinion, an opinion which I highly respect and we went from there. I was very excited, and nervous at the same time, to have the surgery. As far as being nervous, that was not an issue for very long. Dr. Ghaderi and his staff explained in detail the procedure and answered all of my questions every step of the way.”

“One thing he told me over and over is that it would only be a slight change, but to me it has made a world of difference.”

“The recovery was not that difficult, but the outcome is up to you. I had to wear a neck/head wrap everyday for two weeks. I couldn’t lift anything heavy and had to sleep with my head elevated for a short period of time. If you do as the doctor asks, the outcome will be exactly as he says. As for the pain, it was very minimal and pain medication was given.”

“It has been a year since my surgery and I look the same as I did once I was recovered.” Would I do it all over again? YES, DEFINITELY! I feel much better about myself. It is amazing what a minor facial change can do for you inside and out.”

- Diana (Liposuction of Face and Neck)

“In July 2001, I was diagnosed with breast cancer - a recurrence of ductal carcinoma in situ, for which I had been treated with a lumpectomy and radiation treatments in 1999. This news was absolutely devastating!! I had been told all along that I had caught the cancer at a very early stage (“pre-cancer” in some books) and that the type of cancer was very slow growing and non-invasive even though I did have some micro invasions. It could have been forming in my body for 5 or more years, but didn’t show up on the mammograms until May 1999.”

“The recommended course of action was to have a mastectomy and reconstruction. I had no qualms about having a reconstruction - I knew I didn’t want to bother with a prosthesis - but the plastic surgeon who had performed the same procedure on my girlfriend was no longer in my insurance network. I was referred to Dr. Ghaderi by my breast surgeon. The initial consultation with Dr. Ghaderi assured me that he was indeed the physician to perform the reconstruction. He answered all my questions as well as those of my husband. The different types of reconstruction were presented to me along with the pros and cons of each type. Because of my radiated skin, the implant reconstruction (a.k.a. “the Toyota”) was eliminated from the choices and I decided on an attached flap TRAM.”

“The surgery went well with no complications. Dr. Ghaderi gave me a timeline handout of what to expect - what medications would be administered, when I should start walking the halls of the hospital, what emotional feelings I might experience, etc. I found this to be so reassuring - especially the morning when I was in a “weepy” mood. Sure enough, my timeline said that my emotions would come into play on that day.”

“The goal of the surgery was to have natural looking breasts when wearing a bra. To fully accomplish this, I was scheduled for a nipple surgery approximately six months later. Part of my upper thigh skin was used for the main portion, the areola, and Dr. Ghaderi used Alloderm, which is a synthetic skin, to make a natural nipple. Since insurance companies sometimes deny paying for the artificial material, Dr. Ghaderi personally called my insurance company to get approval. I truly feel that Dr. Ghaderi accomplished his goal - and more. When I see myself in a bra, I can sometimes pretend that the cancer never existed. His work was even complimented by a plastic surgeon in Canada who commented how nicely the breasts matched each other.”

“For anyone who has to go through the trauma of breast cancer, I would advise you to choose your doctors very carefully. I truly feel that my recovery, both physically and emotionally, was less of a nightmare because of the skill and care of Dr. Ghaderi.”
