The office is sunny and bright, the staff are efficient, helpful and knowledgeable. Dr. G. is always a pleasure and I feel like I am in capable hands.
I absolutely love Dr. Kerolus. I meant to write this review earlier and on every other possible place I could write a review about her because she’s the best of the best. I genuinely look forward to seeing her. It is so inspiring to meet someone who is not only beautiful but actually so unbelievably intelligent. She has such a bright future ahead of her and I am definitely due for a touch up for the holidays! Thank you so much Dr Kerolus.
I had read about the Profound (R) micropuncture radiofrequency procedure to stimulate collagen production in the deep layers of the skin of the face and neck. The photos looked fantastic, so I contacted Dr. Julia Kerolus, a facial plastics surgeon, to meet with me and explain the procedure and the science behind it and the expected timeline for results. After that i underwent the procedure at her outpatient office in Glenview. The entire process, from entering the room, to the initiation of local anesthesia, to the radiofrequency itself, was exactly an hour. I drove myself home. Afterwards there is facial swelling which recedes in about three days. And now, just six weeks after, i already look younger, refreshed, and smoother. It\’s pretty remarkable how successful this procedure was – definitely worth the effort!!
Best spa by far! Knowledgeable, super-friendly, very clean. Coming here is like hanging out with friends. Plus their work is impeccable!
Dr.Kerolus is amazing! I have never looked or felt so good. She was so patient, kind and competent. She took her time to explain everything and follow-up with me to ensure I was happy with the result and I was. My eyebrows are more arched, my lips are full (but in a totally natural way), my jaw line is slimmed all in just 1 short visit with Dr.Kerolus. I cannot recommend her more. I will be seeing a lot of her in my future.
Dr. Kerolus is a botox expert! I travel from St Louis to have her do my botox every 3-4 months. She always leaves my face looking refreshed but not overdone and her technique is painless! Not only that but she is so kind and truly listens to her patients. She leaves my face with a very natural look. Would highly recommend!!
Dr. Gutowski is Amazing, Very knowledgeable & there for me every step of the way with every call & visit I couldn’t have asked for a better Dr. His assistant, Ellen was just as amazing with answering every question & there for me also. The River North Surgery Center was also an amazing experience from the moment we walked in the door to the compationate nurses. The Anesthesiologists was amazing, smart & funny. I woke up without pain. We are 5 days post tummy tuck, muscle repair with Lipo. Moving very slow, off Oxycodone early yesterday (day 4, 6am)& taking Advil. Hard to upper chest breathe because I breathe w/ my diaphragm. Pain with getting up & down, but once there, I’m good. Now to wait! Thank You Dr. G & Team!
Comfortable, quiet environment with knowledgeable staff!! This was by far the best facial/dermaplaning ive ever experienced!! Marina listens to your specific needs.
Very happy with my results- I had a great experience with Dr. Gutowski. He really listened to what I wanted. After going to several doctors that kept telling me to go bigger, Dr. G really understood my vision and he helped me achieve the look I wanted which was figure enhancing, and supportive of my athletic lifestyle.
I went in just for some botox and lip filler. Dr. Gutowski was fantastic. He explained everything and wasn’t pushy at all like other doctors I have seen in the past. I’m really liking the results and plan on going back for more procedures in the near future. I highly recommend Dr. Gutowski.
I chanced upon Dr. Gutowski at a local skin care clinic, and opted for Botox. I’ve had treatments before, but none were as satisfactory as that by Dr. Gutowski. I’m very pleased with the results, and have several people tell me how “young” and “healthy” I look. I highly recommend him.
Dr Gutowski made me feel extremely comfortable during my consultation and procedure. I highly recommend him! Everyone tells me I look amazing. Just wish I could have done this sooner. Excellent bedside manner.
The number one thing needed after deciding to do a major surgery, is being 200% comfortable with your surgeon. We couldn\’t be happier we found Dr. G! After reading up on what procedures there are, the types of surgeries we may be looking at, healing times, etc (thank goodness for this site!) we began searching for the right surgeon. No way was I going through something so hugely important in my life, and so incredibly invasive without being 200% comfortable with the person welding the blade!! Thanks heavens for Dr. K Gutowski! He was technically the 6th or so surgeon I had been in contact with, and hubby and I knew it was right. On top of him responding to my email inquiry personally same day, he greeted us in his waiting room personally to consult with us about my body. We were initially in his consult room least an hour. No interruptions, and we never once felt like he wanted to be elsewhere, or rushed. We spoke BEFORE looking at my body (which is a big change from a nurse walking you into a doctors room, and telling you to put on a little paper cape before you even get a glimpse of the surgeon). We kept in fairly frequent contact from the first consult, to final consult (a whopping 8 months out), which was two or three weeks before the surgery where we spent over two uninterrupted hours with just the surgeon! Dr. G\’s office manager, Ellen, is one of the most wonderful professionals I\’ve met. Very responsive, above and beyond. I couldn\’t recommend Dr G and staff enough. We have been given both of their cell phone numbers, and they are adamant that in between post op checks, we text or call with any possible questions or concerns. So, so happy this team has taken care of me.
I highly recommend Dr. Gutowski because of his expertise and his caring attitude. The location is great and the facility is very warm and inviting as well.
Dr.Gutowski is just awesome.I had lipo with laser done few days before Full tummy tuck . This Doctor is very caring and takes care of his patients . You can feel that he is there for you with anything you need. For me this tummy tuck was important to get my self confidence back. I’m on my second day of tummy tuck recovery ,yesterday on day of the surgery Dr Gutowski came to see me at my home in the evening ,checking if everything is good and I’m comfortable .Just Wow. The surgery center Dr G choose was just great,their team was superb and pain doctor was fab too. I’m thankful to find Dr Gutowski to be. My body sculptor, literally he is artist in this field.If I need any more help with plastic surgery I’m forever patient ! Really happy with Dr Gutowski coordinator Ellen and his team . Thank you ,even know I’m still recovering ,I feel great to have this level of care ,just amazing.
Dr Gutowski is awesome, he listens to you and what you are wanting to achieve. 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 filler. I was always afraid I would end up with these huge lips and it is just perfect. He knew just how much to give me! I can’t say enough good things about him. If you are considering anything please see him first, you won’t be disappointed.
Everything with Dr Gutowski and his team is always amazing! He’s the best !
Dr. G and his staff are welcoming and supportive, and they are happy to answer any questions you might have. I have had a few treatments of micro-needling and I am seeing a great improvement on the appearance of some deeper acne scars I had on my cheek.
Dr gutowski has a great team and he is very down to earth, caring, and very skilled at what he does.
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…
Breast Augmentation – My experience with Dr. Gutowski was absolutely perfect. Before consulting with him, I had already visited 3 other plastic surgeons in the Chicago area and still wasn’t set on any of them. Once I met with Dr. Gutowski, I knew right away he was going to be the surgeon I chose. He spent so much time with me explaining everything I needed to know about the procedure including the different i…
An expert in his field and he provides remarkable care to his patients. – I want to express my sincere appreciation for the care I received from Dr. Gutowski. The initial consultation was an eye opener for me. This was the first surgeon who honestly did not tell me what I wanted to hear. Dr. Gutowski was very honest about the procedure and discussed realistic results with me. He took time to research some of my concerns with the potential results and emailed me a…
I Had an Amazing Experience – Everything was so perfect, I’m so happy!!! I’m really recommending him so nice and very professional. Before I felt so insecure but now everything is perfect so now I can start feeling secure and I know what I want the procedure it’s not that bad and not really painful.
Dr. G is an Artist!! – Dr. Gutowski is absolutely fantastic. He is an artist and an expert at what he does and he prides himself on delivering the best outcomes possible. I had a tummy tuck with lipo and breast fat transfer. I interviewed surgeons in my city but couldn’t find one who had experience with breast fat transfer or the 360 tummy tuck with lipo. Many of the doctors in my area are also still using…
Fantastic experience – Dr. Gutowski was amazing. He met with me multiple times before my surgery and checked with both my husband and I to make sure that we both completely understood the procedures I was going to have. He even came to my house the day after surgery to check in on me and make sure that I was doing well. I am thrilled with the results, I only wish I had come to him sooner!
Breast Implant Revision – Honestly, if you are looking for the best, look no further because I can’t recommend him enough!!
DR Gutowski is absolutely great !!! Highly recommend
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…
The most professional service available. Staff and equipment
27/f/neck/chin Lip – 4 Weeks Post Op – VERY PLEASED – 5 stars for everything, my favorite thing is how responsive and how much he cares about each patient. He gives his personal cell after surgery and answers all follow up questions and concerns right away.
Great surgeon. He trained me while he was at Northwestern.
Great Doctor and Staff – I’ve had Botox done twice already at this clinic and results were great. Dr. Gutowski is very knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to explaining things. The clinic is very nice and staffed with helpful people. Dr. Gutowski spent reasonable amount of time with me explaining what’s best for me when I first decided to get Botox and he didn’t push me to use more expensive procedures. I highly recommended his clinic.
Dr G works very fast and is highly rated! He is one of the BEST plastic surgeons in the Chicagoland area!
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 doctor answered all calls and emails personally. Amazing job!
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! He always made time for me and never made me feel as though I was a burden.
Great Doctor, Friendly Staff, EXCELLENT WORK! – Chicago, IL – I highly recommend Dr. Gutowski. His office in the Chicago area is easy to get to and the service is terrific. I drove 2 1/2 hours to have this procedure, and would do it again in an instant. More importantly, I will continue going to him any time I need special cosmetic care….and I highly recommend you consult with him to see what he can do for you :)))
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 perform 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 achieve that in my legs. So after having 3 kids including one over 40 I decided to see a plastic 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, answered 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.
Happy Face 40 Year Old ! 🙂 – Chicago, IL – Dr. G is a very friendly and easy to communicate with. He wasn’t pushy. Instead he takes time to listen to what you want. He gives his professional opinion and options. I wish I would’ve found him sooner. I wasted my time and money on another doctor, and never was happy with the results or his arrogance. Dr. G and his staff are Amazing. Talented, considerate, helpful and understanding. He is excellent and trustworthy. He definitely knows his skill very well. Oh, and unlike the other doctor who after the fillers I left looking like I was in a car accident. With Dr. G., I had various fillers, than before, and left hardly bruised. Happy I found him and his wonderful staff!
I Waited Too Long to Do This!!! Chicago, IL – I’ve had a double chin my entire life!!! Even when I was much thinner, people would tell me wow, I would think you are much bigger based on my drivers license. I finally bit the bullet and had chin and neck Lipo with laser tightening. I’m only two days out and I already look like a 2.0 version of myself.
Pleased with my Lipo! – Chicago, IL – Dr. Gutowski and his staff were so friendly! The best part is that Dr. G is great with answering any questions/concerns when needed.
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!
59 Years Old. Painful Huge Breasts No Matter How Much Weight I Lost – Chicago, IL – This Dr. is wonderful, understanding and always available to address and concerns.

Lips Were Ruined by Another Doctor with a Bad Injection, Dr. Gutowski Fixed Them Perfectly! – Chicago, IL – I love that Dr. Gutowski is very easy to reach!

Much Needed Tummy Tuck, MR, & Lipo After 10lb Baby, 37 Mom of 2 – Chicago, IL – Throughout this entire process Dr. G has been AMAZING. From his awesome Coordinator Ellen to his wonderful bedside manner, he has been the most patient, responsive, and friendly doctor. From the first consultation he was honest about expected results, provided in detail what to expect and made himself available if I had any questions. After the procedure he personally followed up with me to see if I was ok and once again made himself available if I had any problems, questions, or concerns. I am extremely pleased with my results and I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Gutowski to anyone in the Chicago area seeking a procedure.
29 Years Old, Getting Married This Year, Feel Not Proportionate – Chicago, IL – He is the most professional, yet caring and concerned doctor I’ve EVER dealt with. I was very nervous about my procedure and he eased my worries and told me that I would look great and he would answer ANY of my questions and not to be afraid to ask. He also gave me his personal cell to text him anytime. I am so comfortable with him. I would go back for ANYTHING additional without question. I will never trust another plastic surgeon other than him.
