REVIEWS FROM AROUND THE WEB
I don’t even know where to begin with how absolutely amazing Dr.T and his staff are. I had a breast augmentation on March 5 2020, and just everything from the start has been smooth and effortless. I never felt like just another number, I was taken care of every step of the way. He is warm kind honest and will point you in the right direction, and it’s so awesome to have my own nurse anytime I need to get ahold of to answer questions. He is a true artist and I am so happy with the outcome, look, feel everything im obessed. It was an honor to have work done by him, if you are interested in any type of cosmetic procedures don’t look any further.
My experience with Dr T was amazing!!! Though I seen him in Florida, I am glad I did! It was Back in 2013 for Breast Augmentation! I can Not Complain! Omg its going on 7 years this 3/21, and I must Say I STILL LOVE MY BREAST!!!!
Dr. Truong has given me life-changing results. He did a wonderful job on my Lipo360 and my confidence has sky-rocketed since. I see muscle tone in my abdomen at the gym now; I knew it was hiding under there! Great bedside manner and a very talented surgeon.
I recently had a tummy tuck procedure which was performed by Dr. T only about 3 weeks ago. I feel & look great! I can’t express how ecstatic I truly am! I’m in my 30’s with no kids, struggling with weight since I was a teenager. My weight fluctuating over the years caused me to have a pouch (very unattractive). I’m still on the plus size but a hanging belly made me look even heavier and impacted my self-esteem. Before I went to Dr. T for a consult. I reached out to several of the popular Instagram doctors aboard. I watched countless videos of other girls who shared their experiences having surgeries in other countries. I received several cheap quotes compared to the prices in Chicago and other U.S cities. But I just couldn’t risk traveling aboard and jeopardizing my health to save money. I’m writing a long review because prior to my surgery and even before my consultation. I searched endlessly, for honest reviews from other patients who had gotten a tummy tuck and were in the same predicament as myself. It’s only been 3 weeks but my body has transformed and my self-confidence has increased. I’m looking forward to the final results which do take several months.
The recovery has been really easy! Please don’t be disheartened by the scary and painful experiences shared on social media and YouTube. I understand everyone’s body is not the same and each of us will have a different experience with our recovery. With that being sad, having an experienced, board certified, and a gifted plastic surgeon makes all the difference. Honestly, hardest part of the recovery was not being able to drive for the first 2 weeks. Driving restrictions will be given by all plastic surgeons who perform tummy tucks. I was hesitant because it was my surgery and also because of the cost, but Dr. T’s prices are fair, affordable and competitive in the Chicago market. I was not pressured into getting the surgery, my questions were thoroughly answered with kindness and patience by Dr. T, and his wonderful assistant Monika. I asked countless redundant questions and spent a great deal of time with both of them before finalizing my decision. The entire staff is so professional, nonjudgmental, genuinely kind and caring.
Final thoughts, it might be cheaper to travel aboard but it’s not worth the risk. I made decision to undergo my surgery ever with Dr. T, not only because of his merits, academic accomplishments and amazing procedure results and also his swag, but because of his of aura. It’s hard to explain but you will sense it when you meet him, he’s honest, patient, kind and most importantly he’s ethical. He doesn’t recommend unnecessary procedures or enforces changes he wants to see on you. He will help and guide you in achieving the body you have envisioned for yourself. My only regret is not getting a tummy tuck sooner with him. It’s embarrassing but I’m sharing my pictures because I had desperately searched for body types like my own, who had gotten the procedure and wanted to see their results. I hope my very long review helps anyone considering tummy tuck. If you’re in Chicago meet Dr. T if you’re interested in the tummy tuck, it’ll be totally worth it! Always read others review on Realself, never thought I’d be writing one too! 🙂
I did a LOT of research to find the perfect surgeon who could deliver natural, yet superior results. I wanted a BBL that didn’t look like I had an obvious surgery done, but that would improve my figure and give me that beautiful hourglass shape along with lifting and filling out my sagging behind. I knew from my first consultation with Dr.Truong & by the looks of his portfolio, that he would be the one to do my surgery! I brought along photos of what I personally wanted to achieve and he told me exactly what he would need to do to achieve those results. I gladly traveled from out of state to have my BBL surgery by Dr. Truong and it was the best decision I’ve ever made!! Everyone at his office and the morning of my surgery were so nice and accommodating. I can not recommend him enough and I think my before and after photos speak volumes! He clearly is highly skilled in lipo sculpting and fat transfer! If you have been thinking about this procedure and are on the fence, you just need to do it! You will be in great hands with Dr. Truong & his staff. Your confidence will undoubtably be boosted after this procedure; Mine sure was, and I’m absolutely thrilled with my results!
Dr. Truong is amazing!! I researched doctors online and chose to have a consultation with him. Just by looking at my body he was able to point out exactly what I was going to tell him that I wanted. His experience with liposuction and bbl surgery really showed up during the consultation. He is very professional and gives off a reassuring energy. So, I didn’t feel self-conscious about sharing my concerns with him. Everyone at the office is extremely supportive and helpful. When I went in to have my surgery, he thoroughly went over details of the body shape I wanted. I was so excited!!! I can’t wait to go back to my one month post op appoinment. I still have some swelling yet this is the smallest waistline I have ever had in my life. Dr. Truong makes the unimaginable possible. Thank you times a million!! I can’t wait for summer to show off my new body. Dr. Truong is a body contouring artist!!!
Plastic Surgery vs. Cosmetic Surgery: Is there a difference?
While both cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery deal with alteration to the human body, the ultimate goals may differ and thus the guiding principles with regard to training, research, and emphasis of procedures may differ.
The procedures, techniques, and principles of cosmetic surgery are entirely focused on Improving aesthetic appeal, symmetry, and proportion with the purpose of enhancing a patient’s appearance.
Cosmetic surgery can be performed on all areas of the head, neck, and body. Because the treated areas function properly, cosmetic surgery is considered an elective procedure and therefore not medically necessary. This is why many insurance plans do not cover the cost of plastic surgery procedures.
Here are some of the most top requested cosmetic surgery procedures:
Plastic surgery on the other hand is defined as a surgical specialty dedicated to reconstruction of facial and body defects due to birth disorders, trauma, burns, and disease. Plastic surgery is reconstructive in nature as it is primarily concerned with restoring function, while maximizing form is of secondary concern.
Although many of the surgical principles in regard to maximizing aesthetic appearance of the final result are the same, plastic surgery’s primary objective is to restore the underlying function of the body part whether it be mobility, bodily function, or protective tissue coverage.
Here are some common examples of reconstructive plastic surgery procedures:
- Breast reconstruction after mastectomy
- Cleft-lip repair
- Hand surgery and finger re-plantations
- Scar revisions
- Scar and skin graft surgery for burns
- Skin flaps for tissue defects.
Is plastic surgery the same as cosmetic surgery?
If you’ve been searching for a plastic surgeon in Chicago or your area, you’ve probably come across the terms “plastic surgery” and “cosmetic surgery”. The terms plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery are used interchangeably and are closely related but not the same. Both cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery deal with the surgical alteration of the human body.
It is extremely important to do your research and ask the right questions when choosing a surgeon to perform your cosmetic surgery procedure. Your surgeon should have adequate training and experience in the procedure in order to perform a procedure safely and proficiently. To find the best plastic surgeon in Chicago for a specific cosmetic procedure, you must compare doctors’ overall (residency and post-residency) training, experience, and proven competence with respect to that specific cosmetic procedure that you want to get.
Board-certified cosmetic surgeons are residency-trained and certified in a primary surgical specialty and then fellowship-trained specifically for cosmetic surgery.
When it pertains to cosmetic surgery, the training, experience, and knowledge required to become a board-certified cosmetic surgeon reflects specialization in cosmetic surgical procedures above and beyond what is required in “plastic surgery”.
Each surgeon who is board-certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery has completed a one- or two-year fellowship training dedicated to cosmetic surgery alone. During this fellowship, surgeons receive thorough training in all cosmetic surgery procedures of the face, breast, and body, plus non-surgical cosmetic treatments, performing a minimum of 300 individual cosmetic surgery procedures as seen in the graph below.
