I feel natural, and I can't put a price tag on how I feel with self confidence - After having 4 kids naturally I was uncomfortable with how my body looked. Nursing had depleted my breasts and my belly button still stuck out like I was 9 months pregnant. My husband and I agree that my body needed some attention. I needed a breast augmentation and surgery to push my belly button back in. After an intensive research process which also included 4 in-person consultations in... More

Wouldn't go to anyone else - I saw Dr Gutowski in the Champaign office. He is awesome. He listens to you and what you are wanting to acheive. I have always had a hollowness under my eyes and it has gotten worse with age and medical problems. He gave me Radiesse under my eyes. He has a special technique that gets the filler where it needs to be with very little pain. It looks great! I also had Restylane Lyft for lip... More

Best PS in Illinois - Chicago, IL - After consulting 4 other doctors I knew my search was over when I met Dr. Gutowski. His bedside manners were impeccable, he asked the right questions, was realistic with me, and kept me informed the whole time. I knew my case wouldn't be easy because I have a pre-existing condition that causes Chronic Anemia. For my story to be a success I needed a PS who excels at what he does, and 4 weeks... More

However, they came out bigger than what I had wanted and after 3 years and just couldn't do it anymore. Hard to sleep, workout, breathe..just wanted them out.

56 Year Old Women. Lost 90 Pounds on my Own - Chicago, IL - Dr. Gutowski was so passionate about his work. I felt safe and informed at all times. I had received all my before and aftercare instructions immediately. I had almost ten hours of surgery and walked out of surgery center that day. The recovery took awhile but the pain was manageable.

The process was so smooth and I was well taken care of by him and the staff, before and even after the procedure. No questions went unanswered so the day of the surgery I felt prepared.

Total artist! Wonderful experience! - I would recommend Dr. Gutowski to anyone! Total professional and artist! Wonderful bedside manner, caring, and skilled! Dr. G went above and beyond with my procedures. I had a body lift, breast lift, lipo, and fat transfer to breast. I was up the same day. I believe due to no drain use and a great surgery center- River North Surgery Center! Ellen, his business manager, makes everything seamless! Worth the drive or flight to see this doctor! More

Tummy Tuck with Lipo 55 Year Old - Oak brook, Illinois - Dr. Gutowski is one of the best plastic surgeons in the Chicago area (if not the best). His skills are unmatched, but it's his kindness, availability and support that set him apart. He listens to his patients and delivers on his promises!

Smart Lipo on Arms and Calves - Oak Brook, IL - Dr. Gutowski and his entire staff were just wonderful. His expertise and caring demeanor has allowed me to finally have normal-sized arms and calves. There aren't many doctors out there who specialize in arms and calves, and not all results are good. I couldn't be happier with my results! The technique Dr. Gutowski uses maximizes both, fat loss and skin shrinkage. More

Botox and Filler - Champaign, IL - Dr. Gutowski is Amazing! I first found him on this website as I was looking to get minor work done. I had planned on driving to Chicago, but was pleasantly surprised that he sees patients 2x/month in Champaign at Becky Monson Skin Care. Perfect! I received Botox injections for my lines between my eyebrows and also to drop my upper lip down a little. I also received filler for my upper lip and am absolutely thrilled with the results. He is extremely professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. I plan to get more work done- trust me, he is Fantastic!! Don't wait- Go see him! More

I recently had my first experience at Lincoln Park Aesthetics. I purchased a Groupon for a custom facial and upon my arrival was greeted by a very friendly staff. The front desk staff was super knowledgeable and answered questions while I was waiting for my tech. I inquired about product and other promotions and the receptionist was extremely helpful. My tech, I think her name was Megan, did a great job and my skin felt very clean after my treatment. I will definitely be back for another treatment. Thank you. More

I found Rejuvenate upon seeking a groupon for laser hair removal. I called to make the appointment and they were so incredibly sweet on the phone, even after I let them know I was planning to purchase the groupon (most places don't treat you the same when you use groupon). Nevertheless, I have been coming here since January for a few things and I love everyone that works here. Christine, Sam, Laura and Rhonda are all so wonderful. Rhonda is an amazing nurse and is so talented and knowledgable with injectables. Sam is a sweetheart and you'll never hear her complain about staying late to do my laser hair removal (thanks Sam!) And from what I've heard, Laura is second to none when it comes to anything related to facials! Christine is so sweet and always greets everyone with a smile. I highly recommend rejuvenate! More

Let me preface this by saying, I'm not easily impressed and I don't really respond well to ass kissing, phoniness or being judged based on how you look, the clothes you wear, the car you drive or how much money you are perceived to have. Let's face it, this is Lincoln Park, at times money talks and people can be fake and judgemental. I by no means have the leveI of income as many of the Lincoln Park moms that walk in and out of this place, but I was happy to still feel just as important of a customer. The staff is genuine, respectful and treat you like gold, even if you come in with a Groupon, wearing a baseball cap, no jewelry or makeup and cheap target clothing, LOL. The staff is not here to sell you anything or to be judgemental. Instead they provide whatever services you would like in order to help you feel better about yourself and make the improvements that you seek. I was pleasantly surprised! I've been receiving laser hair removal services from Meaghan and I can't say enough about her or this practice. Their office is always clean, staff is always friendly and on-time and the treatments are effective. I've had laser hair removal several times many, many years ago. Since then, the technology has improved greatly. Now there is minimal discomfort and the laser covers much more area, making the procedure much faster. Meaghan is super sweet, super knowledgable and is pleasant to talk to. I highly recommend Lincoln Park Aesthetics and again, am happy that although they serve super "high end" clients, they make everyone feel important and valuable, even if you aren't spending a lot of money there. This will be my go-to place for all of my skincare needs going forward! More

Mommy Makeover-Breast Augmentation and Lipo to thighs, calves, abs and flanks - I went to two other board certified plastic surgeons before meeting with Dr. G.The first doctor has his sales associate meet with new patients and peform the exam. I left the office with a quote and there was no mention of who would be performing the surgery. The other had me wait in his waiting room for an HOUR and was so rude and arrogant, there was no way I would have wanted him to perform such a personal surgery. Dr.G was not only the most down to earth, easy to talk to plastic surgeon I've met, but doctor in general. He runs his office on time which I feel is very respectful of his patients time. He listened to my concerns and was quick to answer his email with any questions I had. I am absolutely thrilled with my results and I am so thankful that I found him on RealSelf. - - I've always had an issue with excess fat on my legs from my hips to my ankles. My upper body has always been fit and somewhat muscular but I never have been able to acheive that in my legs. So after having 3 kids including one over 40 I decided to see a plactic surgeon about my deflated breasts and address the hatred I've always had for my legs. I found an excellent doctor here on RealSelf. He listened to my concerns, anwsered all my questions and we scheduled the surgery.Everyone at the surgery center was very nice and my after care nurse was just phenomenal. Post op was real rought the first few days but by the one month mark I felt pretty much back to normal and by the second month I was back to normal. I am three months out now. I went from a small B to a full C with 350cc Ideal Implant (no lift) and lost 2 pant sizes. My calves and ankles have never been as small and defined as they are right now. I am absolutely thrilled with my results and would do it again in a heartbeat. More

35 Year Old Athletic Female - Chicago, IL - Dr. Gutowski is very kind and understanding. I am very impressed that he actually takes the time to talk me to via email and phone for any questions I had which is very rare for busy plastic surgeon. I highly recommend Dr. Gutowski. - - I was always self conscious about my thighs and tummy. Those areas are where I can easily gain weight esp the upper thighs. With diet and exercise, I was able to lose a bit of inches but not to where I wanted to be so I've decided to see Dr. Gutowski for a Liposuction consultation. He explained how liposuction can target my trouble zones and it is a fairly simple procedure. One thing about I was hesitant about was going under during surgery. He suggested that I can get the procedure where can localize the areas being treated and still be awake! After a week of contemplating, I've decided to move forward with the procedure. During the procedure I was a bit nervous but it went fairly quick and Dr. Gutowski was very kind and patient with my needs and concerns. Procedure happened on a Friday and went back to work that Monday. I was sore for about two weeks but nothing major to complain about. As each month went by, I would notice how my pants felt a bit looser and that is a great feeling! In conclusion I am very pleased with my Liposuction and would do it again! More

Chin/Neck Liposuction Done with SmartLipo Triplex was a Success!!! - Chicago Cosmetic Institute Location, Chicago, IL - Dr. Karol A. Gutowski is a nice, compassionate, caring, non-judgmental doctor who listens to you and your concerns, as opposed to other surgeons who dictate what to do. He is also an incredibly talented and skillful surgeon who will give you realistic expectations and tell you what's possible and what's not. He's quick and available to answer questions over the phone and email.My advice to people having neck lipo is to choose a very experienced doctor who's board certified in plastic surgery and who does a lot of this procedure. Don't let any doctor who just took a liposuction weekend crash course perform lipo on you as it takes many years of training and experience to perform liposuction correctly. Better yet, choose Dr. Gutowski to do liposuction on you if you live in the Midwest and near the Chicago area. You will not be disappointed!! More

50 Years, Mom of 3: Happy with Smart Lipo & Dr. Gutkowski/staff - Oak Brook, IL - I am four months post- op, having had Smart Lipo on my flanks (the hated love handles), lower abdomen and inner thighs. I am so happy I had this procedure. Dr. Gutowski had me completely at ease and confident in his skills; his wonderful nurse Susie was amazing during it all. There were no complications, the doctor followed up both before and after, and his nurse checked on me too. I highly recommend this doctor, and plan to have my eye-bags done by him next year. More

He is a genuine person and answered all my questions. I am so happy with my results too. I was nervous before and he did an amazing job.

Upon my 1st visit w/Maggie Romano, she was a class act, knowledgeable, informative and professional. I have followed her since. She understood when I told her I didnt want to alter my appearance and rather enhance it. Patiently and after explaining my options she administered Dysport the (botox). I was impressed with the final softening of my lines a week later. Following this and trusting her full heartedly, I agreed and looked forward to the full face Sculptra treatment. The results were amazing. I believe Maggie is like a painter creating a masterpiece on canvas. Her expertise of facial anatomy and product capabilities allow her to master each individuals own uniqueness with artistic accuracy. Anyone who wouldn't appreciate her skill isn't worth taking up her valuable appointment time. More

I've had a few consults with other plastic surgeons, all of whom were nice and professional, but there was something different about Rejuvenate Med Spa and Dr. Gutowski. First, everyone at the front desk was incredibly friendly and welcoming. Ellen, the surgical manager has a spirit and manner that is extremely engaging; it's as if we'd been friends for years. Dr. Gutowski is knowledgable, professional and engaging, and has an ability to put one at ease immediately. I knew immediately that he was going to be the doctor to perform my procedure. I did my research prior to my consultation and it was clear to me that Dr. Gutowski is using the latest in all procedures. He was also honest with me about what procedures he thought I would benefit from and which I would not, which I appreciated. Ellen followed up immediately with me on prices and additional information. I couldn't be happier! More

When I was younger I got a burn which resulted in a large depressed (quarter sized) scar on the side of my face.  After two Bellafill treatments the scar has never looked better.   Maggie was gentle and the injection itself wasn't painful.  She explained the whole process, safety of the treatment, and what to expect.  I recently had engagement photos done, and I'm so happy I didn't have to be self-conscious of my scar.   I came to Lincoln Park Aesthetics looking for scar treatment, now I've been introduced to Dysport, tattoo removal, and skin care products.  I never thought I would be someone that would get Botox/dysport but I'm really happy with how much the wrinkles have improved.  It's easy to become a regular here, the staff is knowledgeable, treatments are efficient, products are noticeably different than what you buy at a regular store, results of treatment are life-changing.

I bought a package of 6 LHR treatments and will be updating in a few more treatments. The place is clean, quiet, and cozy. Everyone is very nice and patient with any questions you may have. The entire process goes by quickly which is great news because the laser isn't completely painless. But it will probably be worth it. I did my legs at another medical spa and saw a 10-15% reduction every time I had a treatment so I'm hoping for that effectiveness and thoroughness. We'll see. Tips: -If you're uncomfortable with being introduced to other treatments/products just act uninterested and I'm sure they'll leave you alone. -Don't be late and don't be mad if they can't accommodate you last minute. This isn't your sister's spa. You can't expect them to be OK with losing out on maybe hundreds of dollars every time you cancel last minute or don't show up. Charging $25-$50 for cancellation or late fees is STANDARD practice for almost every business that rewires an appointment. Don't be weird, dude. -For extra sensitive areas make sure you ask about the numbing cream. Or ask for a countdown so you can cough while the laser works. It helps diminish pain, usually. It'll probably hurt a little but it's better than a wax. -Don't be shy. They do this ALL DAY. They don't care. If you're like me you're probably the one making it awkward. -Tip only in cash, check, or Chase Quickpay. And don't forget to tip! More

I am a regular client of Jenna's and can not say enough good things about her and Lincoln Park Aesthetics. I originally came in for laser facial rejuvenation but after my initial consultation where we discussed my past treatments and my skin goals, we decided on a different course of treatment -?microneedling. In just a few sessions I have seen more improvement on my deep acne scars and overall skin texture through my visits with Jenna than I had seen from prior years of more expensive and more invasive laser treatments. The pricing is reasonable and I appreciate the value. Typically to get a good deal for these types of services in Chicago you're going somewhere sketchy that churns people in and out like cattle -?not here. I look forward to the relaxing atmosphere and the time and care that Jenna puts into my skin. I am so happy I found this place. More

From the time you are greeted at check-in through the time you leave you are well taken care of. Maggie is very professional and goes over every little detail and answers every question that is thrown at her. She's also very knowledgable, experienced, is very gentle and definitely makes you feel reassured. She's also not pushy like some other places to get more things done. She listens to what you desire and gives her professional advice on how to achieve such look. I am going back to see her in a couple weeks! More

I'm so happy I finally decided to get Dysport! I didn't realize it but I was constantly furrowing my brows during the day, I may have even furrowed my brows in my sleep! My daughters used to ask if I was angry for no reason other than what they were perceiving from the etched in line between my brows. I was nervous to see how the results would be, but I look totally like myself, just a little more rested and pleasant. Maggie was great at making the experience very easy going, showed me before and after photos of other patients she has treated, explained exactly where she would be injecting my face and what effect it would have, she had me sign up for aspire rewards (which helped take the price of treatment down). At my follow up, I brought one of my daughters, which thankfully was okay and Maggie helped to distract her from seeing the quick touch up. More

Maggie is absolutely wonderful. I have followed her to 3 different locations because she is simply the best in the business. With her medical background she is able to give me an analysis on my skin and the steps that I need to take to take to have my best face forward. She is not just some assistant at a spa that was given botox to inject into people. She does a very thorough analysis with you first to understand your goals. She then spends much time looking at your face and giving you the medical explanations of what is occurring and then helping you take whatever steps you need to achieve your desired result. The key part is that she makes you look natural. So many people have had botox botches and duck lip injections. Maggie took a phased program strategy with me so that we would slowly begin the augmentation process of my lips and the raising of the eyebrows. I have compliments all the time of how great I look which is so valuable to me in a sales position. I have and will continue to recommend Maggie to everyone I know. Thank you Maggie! More

Danie is very sweet and made sure that I was very comfortable considering I am kind of a baby about the laser. (It is not super painful, just feels a little prickly) I would recommend this medical spa to anyone. In the past, I've also received a microdermabrasion and peel from Danie, which loved both of them as well.

I have gone to a few different places for laser hair removal treatments and Lincoln Park Aesthetics is my favorite. Danie has been my technician through all my treatments and is really great. I like having just one person that you schedule with all the time, because then they really get to know you and it feels more personal. Not all places are like that. l have never felt pressured into buying anything, but Danie does let me know about any deals going on to see if I would be interested. I've never had a problem scheduling, and was even able to reschedule for the following week when I realized I wouldn't be able to make my appointment (I called more then 24 hours in advance per their policy, and avoided the cancellation fee, which is just like any other med spa). By far the best laser and results of any of the places I have gone. I would highly recommend!! More

I have received filler and botox by Maggie, and micro-needling by Lauren. Simply put both ladies are amazing! I was hesitant coming here being new to town but really lucked out stumbling upon this place. The prices are reasonable, they are always friendly and prompt but most importantly the results exceeded my expectations. I'm no stranger to filler and Maggie has a different style than what I'm used to so I was nervous at first but the results were amazing and she was able to mitigate the pain more than I'm used to. I'm not finished with my micro-needling sessions with Lauren yet but she's been great at informing me of other ways to care for my skin at home and I'm already seeing great results from my procedures. I'll be sticking with these ladies for sure! More

Like many others here, I purchased a Groupon for 6 laser hair removal sessions. From my first appointment, I have been very impressed with this spa. It's very boutique-like, fitting for the area, and that can sometimes be a little intimidating, but the staff is SO kind. Judy has been doing my treatments, and she's great. Not only is she professional and fast, but she also always makes easy conversation, seems to remember me, and gives useful tips.Best of all, I've seen a significant reduction in hair growth, and I'm not done with treatments. For the price I paid, it has been WELL worth it.Further, they have been super kind and flexible, considering my wife had a baby mid-way through my treatments. Since I'm currently a FT mom, scheduling can be tricky. I had an appt. last Friday evening, long after my wife should have been home, but ran into a hiccup when my wife's tire blew and she didn't make it. I had no choice--I had to take my 3 month old infant.I didn't know that he couldn't be in the room during my treatment (d'oh). So, the staff at LPA, including one of the plastic surgeons, actually watched my son in the waiting room while I quickly got my treatment. I know--mom of the year, right?But really, they went ABOVE and BEYOND, and I'm so, so thankful that they didn't make me feel like the world's worst person.Would definitely recommend this place to others.

We were very skeptical about the tattoo removal procedure because my husband has very sensitive skin and we had heard it is a very lengthy process. However, after multiple pricey consultations with other aesthetics, we decided to try one more place. So glad we did. We have been very pleased with the place (very clean), prices, staff, products and procedure from Day 1. We travel 3 hours one-way and it is worth our trips. My husband has now been seen by Danie for 8-months for tattoo removal sessions. The medical barrier cream that Danie recommends works wonders for my husband's skin and his tattoos are fading wonderfully. The staff and owner are very polite, accommodating and punctual, which we greatly appreciate due to our travel time. We may need additional sessions for the tattoos to completely fade away but we are more than pleased with the results thus far. See for yourself........ More

Had some fillers done in my top lip which sank years ago, around my mouth and cheeks.  I can't believe the job they did!!  I look years younger and am so happy to have my top lip back!The staff is very nice, down to earth and they make you feel more like you are their friend than their customer.  Even though the decor is white, there is nothing sterile about their attitudes.    Thank you so much ladies!!  I'm so happy too because it lasts for a year so no going back after just a couple of months.   Worth every penny in my book.

I started seeing Erin Buxton over 4 years ago to get my skin in shape for my upcoming wedding. I immediately rebooked after leaving and have seen her every 6 - 8 weeks since. I followed her to LPA and she has worked her magic though many stages of my life. It is honestly the best investment I make in myself - not just physically but mentally. LPA itself has a warm and welcoming environment so I'm already at ease when it's time for Erin to begin. No matter how many time I've seen her, she always looks at me skin and sees what needs to be done. Depending on my needs, she adjusts the facial a bit - I don't think I've ever had the exact same one twice ... in 4 years! She has completely changed my skin's appearance AND the way I treat my skin. Erin is also one of those people who has perfect social skills. She is able to read your mood and adjust the level of conversation accordingly. There are some days where it must feel like a therapy session to her and others where she works quietly while I piece together my life. Erin really knows her clients as people and has real conversations, which it amazing because I'm a person who fears awkward small talk! I honestly leave each session feeling beautiful and relaxed. I've seen Erin for both facials and laser hair removal. She is equally as professional, kind, and fun during both. She's as good as it gets. More

I recently purchased a Groupon for 6 sessions of Laser Hair Removal on a medium area (I chose parts of my face). I've only had one session so far, and that went super smoothly. My technician was very nice, no complaints at all. However, I'm stopping by to leave a review so early into my LHR experience (I'll update after more of my sessions are finished) because of something really great that happened on my first visit. I have a 19 month old son, Evan, who basically goes everywhere with me. I didn't stop to think that a toddler really shouldn't be in a room where laser hair removal was being perfomed (duh!). When I found this out, I quickly offered my apologies and asked to reschedule, but the gentleman at the front desk (the owner? Not sure) offered to keep an eye on him while I was in my session! Obviously, this was something I would have never expected anyone to do, and it was very sweet. My LHR session was only 5ish minutes, so very quick, but the gesture was very generous and sweet nonetheless. When I came out, Evan was smiling, and the owner told me they'd listened to music and danced while I was gone. Thank you so much! Can't wait to be back for the rest of my sessions. More

I purchased a one-session laser treatment for my aging face from Groupon, and I wish wish wish I had purchased the three-session package. It's easy to make the appointment. Originally I booked for the first week of January, but had to reschedule to March for personal reasons. The receptionist told me that I needed to come in a little early to fill out forms -- which I did, no problem. I got an email reminder about the appointment the day before - thank you, I like that. The business is located inside an updated and remodeled old Chicago-style building. It's narrow, but goes way far back. I was kind of surprised how big the place was, because there are several rooms as you go back. I was greeted professionally and courteously, even though they knew I was a Groupon customer. Michelle was the aesthetician who gave me the treatment. In the treatment room, which looks like it's part of an out-patient surgical center, she told me clearly what the treatment involved and what kind of results I could expect. She explained that you really needed more than one treatment for best results. In fact, they recommend one treatment for each 10 years of your age. I paid $99 for this session, the normal cost of which is $350!! Michelle did give me a goodie bag that contained skin care samples, and information about a discount package for a series of six treatments, the first few were at the Groupon rate. Still, the total would be $1,500! Way out of line for me, sadly. Both the client and the aesthetician wear goggles to protect the eyes from the laser. The laser feels like little burning pinpricks. It's not comfortable, but it is certainly bearable. I just kept telling myself, it's for a good cause and it's over soon. Michelle was so straightforward about diminished expectations for this treatment that I really thought I wouldn't notice much of anything. But you know what? Friday evening, one week after the treatment, I went to wash my face before bed and I noticed, my skin looks different. It looks better. The acne breakout on my cheek was almost all gone. Somehow, I looked fresher. Even with only one session, there was a visible difference, at least to me. I did notice. Unless the lottery ticket comes up a winner, I can't afford to go back. It's only Groupon that makes such treatments available to me. Considering what a loss this spa takes on a Groupon, they'll probably never make this offer again. Just in case, though, I'll be watching for it. If you can afford it, you are likely to see a real difference in your face. The spa does offer a payment plan. As my mother used to say, people can afford what they want. Maybe I just don't want this enough. More

I felt him to be honest, competent and personable. He has years of experience and is a very skilled surgeon. He answered all my questions, returned all my emails promptly and assisted with extra forms for work/FMLA. I feel he is an excellent surgeon and though still early I see dramatic results that are only going to improve with additional healing time.

My appointment was made before the place even opened, Danielle is such a hardworking lady allowing me to get my session done at 8am. As always it was a quick 1,2,3 process. This time we used a different level laser and like always she put me at ease during the entire process. She was even able to help me with a payment plan for my future sessions. Recently I had concerns over my tattoo, obviously I didn't know if it was suppose to look the way it did, I emailed Danielle and was given a quick email response along with a phone call from her.

I've had 4 sessions at LPA so far. I purchased a groupon for laser hair removal on a small-medium area. Because I was blessed with great German farmin' genes I get the really special opportunity to have my upper lip & chin lasered so I can stop looking like I'm taking testosterone therapy (you know, when I'm totally not). All that humiliation aside I am extremely happy with LPA and my results so far. The staff is very very friendly and the office is very modern and clean. The appointments for upper lip and chin are so fast. Like less than 5 minutes. I have had Michelle for 3 appointments and Erin for 1. They have both done such a great and thorough job. I immediately noticed results and the amount of manly man hair on my face is dramatically reduced. There are still a few sexy stragglers hanging in there but I have 2 more appointments to go in my package. The pain is pretty minimal, I think the first appointment was the worst but I'm a trooper. I will withstand embarrassing amounts of pain randomly for the weird situations I put myself in (like getting my face hair burned off). But seriously, the pain is very minimal and it's over so fast. Then when you start to realize that you don't need to shave your face because the treatment is actually working, well then the pain is totally worth it! I really cannot recommend this place enough for laser hair removal. I am so happy with the treatment results and the quality of care. I'm glad something is finally working! More

This place is great! And, Danielle was amazing!! I decide to pamper myself for my birthday so I treated myself to a facial. I searched carefully for a place that would be professional, polite, and friendly. I came amazing reviews in Yelp and this place was just that. As soon as I walked up to the front desk, the receptionist was very polite and friendly, offered me a beverage (coffee), and had me fill out paperwork. Right away I was greeted by my aesthetician, Dani, and directed to the spa room. From there on it was a done deal! She explained everything during the facial and my face looked amazing when I left! Clear, glowing, and beautiful! Not to mention, the neck and shoulder massage was and added bonus:) Dani was super sweet, friendly and professional. And, for me working at a salon/spa myself, I can say that this place is great. I would recommend to anyone and would definitely go back. Am even considering getting laser done. Five stars :) More

I love this place. I bought a groupon about 6 months ago for 6 laser removal treatments. I am new to all of this so I was assuming it would be very painful and complicated and a lot of upkeep. I was paired up with Michelle and she is AMAZING. She takes here time to make sure she covers the whole area being treated. I am sort of a baby when it comes to pain, and it does hurt/burn in sensitive areas like the face, but i've been pleased with the results so I suck it up and deal with it.

I always look forward to coming back to catch up, have a relaxing time, and take care of my skin. She also gives THE BEST massages :) As a bonus, they have incredible products. Although a bit pricey, the epionce lotion has done wonders for my flaky, winter skin. I haven't been peeling at all despite the atrociously cold winter we had this year, as opposed to previous years when I was scared to go out and 1) flake more and 2) expose people to my monstrous face. Definitely worth the investment, and they frequently have deals, so I stock up and use the facials throughout the year. Go see Danie, you won't regret it! More

Review from K.N.  |  Source: Yelp  |  Mar 23, 2014

I purchased a Groupon for a Custom Facial and I couldn't have been more pleased with my experience at LPA. The hour long facial was so relaxing - dim lighting, light music playing. Danie was genuinely interested in my concerns with my skin and gave me tips and suggestions through my entire appointment. Sometimes when you buy a Groupon, you often wonder how you will be treated. Danie treated me as if I was a regular and that is something that speaks volumes to me. Because she put me at ease and helped answer my questions along the way, I set up my next appointment right away and I can't wait to go back! I also purchased a brightening face wash and hydrating serum before I left and I absolutely love both products - I can already tell a difference with my skin. HIGHLY recommend LPA! More

Love, love, love this place. Talk about an amazing experience. I bought a groupon for laser hair removal and have since added on about 4 other treatments with Danie. She is the BEST! Super sweet and knows her trade. The owner, Frank, is always there and couldn't be any nicer. Highly recommend for any treatment, worth the money!!! More

I got laser hair removal here and cannot say enough about this place. They have the newer laser so it takes a fraction of the time as the old laser, and the person who does the laser hair removal (Danie) is awesome. I have had laser hair removal before, and nobody has been as thorough as her. I highly recommend this place! More

I bought a groupon for laser hair removal for this place and couldn't be more pleased with the service and professionalism of their staff and cleanliness of the spa . I have gotten laser hair removal in the past and it has been pretty painful, however, the laser at Lincoln Park Aesthetics is brand new, large, powerful and advanced. If you go be sure to request request Danielle (Cervantes). She's the best esthetician I have had in over 10 years of getting laser hair removal- and it worked so well, I now don't have to go back anymore. She is thorough and professional and really takes pride in her work. Plus, she's really funny... making the best of what could be an uncomfortable experience (depending on the area you're having treated). More

Breast augmentation - Highly knowledgeable, very dedicated to his job, excellent bedside manners, excellent follow up after surgery, and last but not least awesome results!!! He is the only doctor that I went to because he was at the top of my list, and he exceeded my expectations! Dr. Gutowski took his time to answer every single question that I had. At the end of my very first appointment with him I book my surgery. Also, Erin, his nurse, has a very positive attitude, very kind, and is full of energy. Awesome team!I'm very happy that I chose Dr. Gutowski to perform surgery on me. He's definitely one of a kind and he totally knows what he does! I highly recommend Dr. Gutowski!

The staff and Charisse are the sweetest ever. I am the biggest chicken when it come to needles or changing anything that involves my face or skin. I purchased a deal on Amazon Local and was going to gift a friend for her birthday. Sadly the coupon was running out and she couldn't make the appointment. Rather then loose the money I decided with some coaxing from a friend ...to use certificate on myself. I am 47 and a first timer..... I did it and even though I fainted ...yes fainted. told you I was a chicken. Charisse was so calming and completely understood. It didn't hurt. It was just my fear that wasn't telling my brain to breath. Once I calmed down, it was easy. I absolutely recommend this team for any refresher service one needs. I give them 10 stars :)) More

I had my first experience at LPA a few weeks ago for a chemical peel. At first, I waited a little longer then expected but it was certainly worth it! Danielle was my aesthetician and made me feel so comfortable. She was also so apologetic for the wait (which was not her fault) and made sure I got my full service. She explained everything in detail and was very patient. She was really easy to talk to and even allowed me to contact her via her personal email with questions and comments afterwards. I was so pleased and impressed with my chemical peel! My skin looked amazing afterwards and not to mention the prices are unlike anywhere else for the services you are getting, it's like they have a 24/7 groupon going ;) this place is definitely worth checking out and you will feel like you have a personal relatioinship with them. Already made my second and third appointment! More

!!! - Northbrook, IL - Dr. Gutowski was recommended to me by my fiance's friend. After consulting with 2 other doctors who were located nearer my home, we decided that Dr. Gutowski was our best choice. He's extremely professional. During our consult, he started discussion with the risks right away, which I thought was very informative. I felt so comfortable with him right away. We discussed what size I should get and although I hesitated with 397 cc, I was convinced later on that it would be a good fit for my frame. Day of surgery was so easy, even though I was anxious to get it over with. The follow ups with Dr. Gutowski have been successful. I'm so happy I made my decision to pick this doctor. More

The Ultimate Filler - Northbrook, IL - Dr. G. provided me the kindness and professionalism which is important to me. He did not overwhelm me with information, but always answered the questions I asked to my satisfaction. Rather than just agree to what I thought I wanted, he provided his opinion in a manner which encouraged me to give more thought to my ideas. He was very easily accessible both at the office and afterhours when needed. The package of total care was far beyond my imagination. There is a lot of follow up to ensure that everything is going right. Nice sense of humor too. More

A no drain Tummy Tuck for the Holidays - Northbrook, IL - Prior to meeting Dr. G I had two consultations with some very high profile North Shore surgeons. One of them was ok but way too expensive. The other was very highly recommended but something about him creeped me out and I didnt feel comfortable. I found Dr. G on Real Self and since the consult was free I thought I would give it a try. The instant he walked into the room I knew he was "the one". He is extremely approachable but very very confident (for those who know..he has SWAG) and I knew he would do a good job. His price was affordable and the timing in my own life was right. His staff is very nice and responsive. Its only a few days post op and I what I see now still looks like a big old mess, but I think it will smooth out and be awesome. I already know that I look 100% better in clothes and that was my goal.I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Gutowski! More

I recently got a Refresh facial that they had on special also by Michelle. Let me just say, it was the most relaxed I have ever been! She started out by asking me about my skin type and regime so she could use the right products on me. The room was quiet with soft music, dark and a comfortable temperature. Michelle explained each product she was using and had great technique. I was a little nervous having never had a facial but this was great and outstanding for the price. They were on special for $40, normally $95! Be sure to check Groupon and Gilt for their specials they run because you will love it and never go anywhere else. More

Chin Liposuction - Northbrook, IL - Dr. G was fantastic. From the start he was there for me. Unlike another plastic surgeon he didn't try to sell me the whole package. He saw that I had a double chin which was most likely from genetics and said other than your double chin there's nothing else wrong with you. If you're a guy or even a lady, go to him please. He's like the every day guys, guy. Down to earth and smart. He didn't tell me what I wanted to hear he just told me what he thought I should do to enhance my appearance. I've recommended him to my mom and my brother's girlfriend. I couldn't be happier with the results I got and how professional Dr. G was. A+++++!!!! More

Wanted to update people about the procedure, itself: LASER HAIR REMOVAL ACTUALLY WORKS!!! Michelle (the aesthetician who performed my laser hair removal) said it can take up to 6 sessions, to see maximum results, but some people started seeing results after their first session. Well, I am happy to report that she was right. I shaved the morning before my initial 'laser hair removal' session, and I didn't see much of a difference, in the hair or hair growth, at first. However, about 1 to 1 1/2 weeks later, I noticed a HUGE difference. I can go weeks now, without shaving (I waited 12 days, most recently, and it still looked like I could've just shaved the day before), and the little bit of hair that's actually grown back (in most of my bikini area, there's no hair, at all), is very short and minimal. I am very happy, with my results so far...can't wait for my next appointment. So thankful; this was definitely a great idea! More

To summarize, I recently had reconstructive breast augmentation to remove capsular contracture and replace a ruptured implant (from another surgeon 10 years ago). I did extensive research on plastic surgeons in the Chicagoland area and chose 6 doctors for consultation. It was easy to make my final decision to have Dr. Gutowski perform surgery on me. He educated me on all my options and made me feel like I was not just another case but a very important patient. The office staff and surgery team is incredible! Polite, responsive, accommodating, personable and very caring. It really makes a difference. It has been 2 months post op and I am very pleased with my results. Dr. Gutowski and his team has been 100% there to look out for my best interest and have gone out of their way numerous times to accommodate me. On one occasion, Dr. Gutowski and his Coordinator, Wendy came to the office on a day off to see me since I had no driver to take me there the prior day. I also want to mention that I have NEVER had to wait more than 5 mins past my appointment. This was every single visit from consultation to all follow-ups. Not something you experience at most plastic surgeon offices, let alone any Doctor office. The office is busy, Dr. Gutowski is busy. But they make sure you don't feel that. I remember when I was researching doctors, I just wanted someone who did their homework to tell me which doctor to go with. So I (who never writes reviews) am finally doing my part to say that I would highly recommend Dr Gutowski for plastic surgery- breast augmentation in particular. I have not a single negative thing to say about my experience. More

My eyes looked so tired and sad (I am only 36 years old). I saw 3 plastic surgeons to get my options. Only Dr. Gutowski gave me the options of having the procedure in a hospital or in his office procedure suite. He also pointed out that it was not just a cosmetic problem but that my tired eyelids were caused by stretched connective tissue that could be fixed and covered by my insurance. I decide to have the procedure in the hospital and my HMO paid for the eyelid part while I paid for the brow-lift. He did it with me sedated but I only remember him asking me to open and close my eyes. I went home the same day and 5 days later was back to work with some makeup to cover up the bruises. By two weeks I looked years younger and my eyes didn't make me look tired. I had to take a few days off work but it was a reasonable trade-off. More

Dr. Gutowski is absolutely the best! He rescued me after another doctor completely botched my surgery. He kept his promises and really restored my faith in doctors. He's the same concerned doctor after you pay him as he was before and he clearly and genuinely wants to help his patients. I'm convinced that he's one of the few doctors who did not decide to practice medicine just for the money. Go to him and avoid the scamming doctors who spend all of their time and energy trying to make sure their name pops up when you google top doctors in Chicago. Don't be fooled! The really top doctors like Dr. Gutowski don't spend their time pranking around on the Internet trying to force themselves upon you with self-boasting claims that they are top doctors. More

Rating: 5 Your Feedback: I've had a few consults with other plastic surgeons, all of whom were nice and professional, but there was something different about Rejuvenate Med Spa and Dr. Gutowski. First, everyone at the front desk was incredibly friendly and welcoming. Ellen, the surgical manager has a spirit and manner that is extremely engaging; it's as if we'd been friends for years. Dr. Gutowski is knowledgeable, professional and engaging, and has an ability to put one at ease immediately. I knew immediately that he was going to be the doctor to perform my procedure. I did my research prior to my consultation and it was clear to me that Dr. Gutowski is using the latest in all procedures. He was also honest with me about what procedures he thought I would benefit from and which I would not, which I appreciated. Ellen followed up immediately with me on prices and additional information. I couldn't be happier and can't wait for my new body! More

Good Choice - Northbrook, IL - Dr. Gutowski is a great surgeon, and all an around great guy. He's thoughtful, helpful, and passionate about his work. I decided that it was time for me to fix my nose. I found Dr. G on realself and e-mailed him with details about my dorsal hump that I was interested in removing. I was extremely impressed that he called me at 8pm to speak about the details of what I wanted. After a few moments of discussion, I scheduled a consultation with him. When I came in for the consultation, I was greeted pleasantly by the staff, and taken in immediately by the doctor. We discussed my options and he used computer imaging to predict my results. We decided on an open rhinoplasty, in order to remove more dorsal hump, and to refine my tip a bit because it was bulbous.Two weeks before my surgery I managed to be ridiculously late for my re-op consultation and the office was so understanding. I came in an hour and a half late but everyone smiled and had no problem with my clumsy mistake. I was taken in by Marta for a peel and right after that I saw Dr. Gutowski. I can't get over how nice everyone is at that office. It's great haha. Anyway, Dr. Gutowski saw me and explained my risks, post op instructions, etc. They gave me written instructions, and even some tips for my family and I for the post op emotional recovery time. This office goes above & beyond to make sure their patients feel comfortable.When my surgery date came, I was nervous because I've never had surgery before. My nurse Erin took me in and got me ready for the surgery. I met with my anesthesiologist (who's name I forgot) and he answered all the questions I had. As soon as I laid on the operation table, the lights went out & I woke up after the whole thing was over.In the recovery room Erin was there when I woke up & let me see my family. Dr. Gutowski came in to see me after the surgery and explained my care instructions. I was given water & oatmeal, and relaxed for a few moments longer until it was time to go. Erin gave me her phone number to reach her at anytime in case i needed any questions or help. I don't think I ever felt in the dark about anything throughout my whole experience. I totally recommend Dr. G to anyone looking for a surgeon. He, as well as his staff treat their patients very well. He even replied to me on a Sunday afternoon to an e-mail that I sent to him during my recovery about my healing concerns. (Now that's dedication (: ) Erin also called me after the surgery asking if I was feeling okay, answering all of my questions. I totally recommend him. More

Great Determination to Solve the Problem - Northbrook, IL - Scars can happen overnight, but to fix them takes years, I have been to few doctors before I came to Dr. Gutowski, and almost all the other doctors were more determined to clean my wallet then to fix my problem. Dr. Gutowski set the price and kept the promise. Even thought I went many times for the follow up. My problem was deformed lower lip due to the car accident that occurred seven years ago. Dr. Gutowski is still working on it, and I see the improvement. Tomasz Gielazyn. More

39 Year Old Getting Boobs for Her 40th. Chicago, IL - I am a 39 year old, 1 grown child, 5'6", about 145lbs, 36A..BARELY! So my Birthday gift to MYSELF is some BOOBIES!!..I always said I wanted some, and a few weeks ago i realized that I did not want to go into my 40's FLAT CHESTED. I am BEYOND TIRED of wearing PADDED BRAS, PADDED THIS, PADDED THAT...not being able to wear certain low cut, or off the shoulder tops or halter tops..its just a pain having to have my dresses altered, due to being so small up top. So I am scheduled for surgery with Dr Eckhardt on April 19th, and saying I CANT WAIT is the UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE CENTURY!! I CANT WAIT...I will have a couple of months to recover before my Birthday. So I'm hoping that all pain, tightness or discomfort will be gone by then and they have dropped and softened....size I'm going for is 375cc round silicone..I wanted to be FULL, but not too big. One, I don't really want to be OBVIOUS that I even had implants..and two, I don't want to have to buy new tops/clothes, and three, I want them to look VERY NATURAL..so that should put me at a C cup range..maybe even a SMALL D, which I don't want, BUT that all depends on where I buy my bras.( like at VS, I'd be a D For sure!)..but Full B, C range is all I really want. I go for my Preop in a week and a half, so I'll try on sizers again and then decide. I have several pics that I will show Dr Eckhart of what look I'm going for. I know the gummie bears are growing in popularity because they are the 'newest' thing, but I like the feel of silicone ALOT BETTER. And I feel that it will give me more of the natural bounce and jiggle and round shape that I want for a little cleavage without the need for a push up bra...so needless to say, I am SOOOOO EXCITED!!!!! JUMPING OUT MY SKIN, but trying to wait it out. Still have 23 days left..so don't want to drive myself CRAZY until the BIG DAY!!???? More

30yr Female, Arm Lift with Lipo on Arms, Back, Bra Line, Small Buffalo Hump, Abdomen and Flanks! - Chicago, IL - I'm a 30 year old female that has battled with large and saggy arms my whole life. My grandmother had them so bad, they would flap in the wind. Thanks, babciu. My weight has also frequently fluctuated throughout my life, so I do have a lot of extra skin with pockets of fat. My boyfriend and I have begun talking of wedding plans, which means now is the time to do something about this and give myself time to heal before a wedding happens.I searched for a long time for different doctors. I made consultation appointments with three and then narrowed it down to Dr. Gutowski. I was pretty nervous going into the appointment, but once I was in the appointment room, it made me feel relaxed. He was extremely easy to talk to and down to Earth. He won't try to sell you crap you don't need, either. He and his patient care coordinator, Ellen, are fabulous at keeping in touch and getting back to me with any questions or concerns. Ellen has been great at getting me accommodated with my crazy schedule and getting surgery set up for the perfect date so I can recover over my vacation. I am having multiple procedures done, so I will create a review/post for both and will keep them updated simultaneously. I will try to get photos posted as soon as possible.I know a lot of people are curious about costs of plastic surgery. I will be put under general anesthesia since I am having so much done at once, so my procedure is costing a bit more than if you were to do any of these separately under local anesthesia. Also keep in mind, the cost can fluctuate based on each customer and their exact needs. Here is the breakdown of costs:Arm Lift: $6,000 with $2,752 anesthesia feeLipo to back, bra line, hump: $3000 with $1,350 anesthesia feeLipo to abdomen and flanks: $4,000 with $1,350 anesthesia feeBecause I am having all done at the same time, because I mentioned RealSelf and because I am allowing them use of my before and after photos, it dropped the total from $18, 452 down to $15, 704.

Searching in OH, Michigan, Pittsburgh and Chicago!! - I just love Dr. G, he is a very caring, considerate and very approachable person. There has never been a time that I have gotten in touch with him, whether it be by phone or email, that he did not get in touch with me, and for that I am very grateful.I would strongly reccommend him to anyone and everyone. He did not try to push anything on me that I did not need, and his prices are very reasonable,not that, that was the main issue, because health is more important....and he does offer a $1,000 off if you mention RealSelf, that's another plus!!!There is no arrogance detected, and his staff is very accomodating also.My time is fast approaching and I am very excited and I can rest well knowing that I have God first, and him second in bringing me through this....that is all for now, and I surely will be posting more on this great doctor in the near future!!!!Two thumbs up, high fives and whatever else I can give to him!!!!

5'5", 158lbs, age 29 No Kids-- Lipo: Thighs Abdomen Flanks. Chicago, IL - I had always been a chubby child and never had a flat stomach as a teen or adult. I went from a sedentary lifestyle in college to running 6 miles a day, 6 days a week while I was in law school. I got down to a shredded muscular 138, but because of my pear shape I had zero boobs. Despite my shredded physique then, I still had a small lower belly pooch and a pocket of fat on my anterior thighs (right on the top front, near the inner thigh area). These fat pockets have pretty much been my constant companions my whole life.Now that I'm working full time in a position that requires 50% travel, I have a lot less time on my hands for fitness. I still make time for running--I did the Marathon last year and a half marathon in September. In addition to the other races I've done this year, I have a 9-mile race scheduled for November 9 too. But I've gone up to 158 with a lot more fat spread to the thighs. Those fat-pocket-friends have gotten even bigger. I rarely wear pants to work as I find them too uncomfortable. The fabric bunches in my crotch area because those fat pockets push them up, and they wear out more quickly where my thighs rub together.I decided on lipo after weight training this summer. I have been trying to change my diet to more protein and fewer carbs, still maintaining enough to support my running hobby. Though I've seen some results, I want to see what my body would look like without these fat deposits. I didn't want to wait until after I had children in order to see these results either because--well--why should I postpone my life now for an uncertain future? I've talked it over with my boyfriend of two and a half years who is nervous but sweet and supportive, and I'm ready to make this investment in my appearance.Anyway, over the course of about a month, I visited 4 different plastic surgeons in the Chicago area to discuss what I wanted them to do and to get some quotes. The first 2 surgeons I visited were not really interested in taking on my thighs. It strikes me that anything other than the lateral thighs--saddlebags I guess--is too tough aesthetically to yield a solid result. I looked at scores of pictures here and other places and saw a lot of botched jobs. My thighs generally are great and I don't want to screw them up, so I looked for a surgeon who had done good-looking thigh jobs in the same areas that I really liked.I encountered one surgeon who I seriously considered, but though we had great rapport, she only wanted to give me a tiny waist--not really essential to this process. I ended up finding only one surgeon who would agree to take on my thigh job. He has great reviews, some good-looking thigh job photos for this area (which were mostly done as entire-thigh sculpting), and he seemed confident without being an @$$hole about it. He basically offered me exactly what I wanted: a better, more sculpted version of me. I don't need to look like I've had work done, just have better contour in these areas. He was realistic about what he could do and he told me I didn't need other work in other areas. No hard sell on a BBL here either (I have a nice booty that I like very much!). I told him I appreciated his honesty about his own skill and about the gimmicks of lipo as a whole. He offered me the option of local anesthetic as opposed to general, and he gave me a decent price compared to some of the other quotes I received. If you've spent any time on this site or on the internet in general, you'll notice that there aren't many Black folks who have gone under the knife or who are willing to post their stories. I'm here to do just that. I asked my doc about scarring, and he's told me that he stitches up the incision sites to avoid dark scarring around the incision areas. We'll see how that works out. I'm nervous, to be sure. I scheduled my surgery on a date that I'd previously scheduled off, and I'm set to travel for the holidays about 9 days after that. I hope that I'm healed enough to feel ok to travel and not look like I just took a beating once I get in front of my family. I plan to keep this thing updated with the hope that other people will get some use out of my story.Here goes. More

Took a few years off my face! – I first saw this doctor for botox and was very happy with the results. He also referred me to his skin care person for regular facial treatments which after 3 months made my face look fresh. Since then I had an artefill injection and more botox and continue to look younger. It was nice to have a surgeon explain the surgical and nonsurgical choices to me. I recommend his practice! More
