I would've given 10 stars if that were an option. I am very pleased with my breast reduction surgery. Prior to surgery, I researched plastic surgeons and found Dr. Peters. After my first visit with her, I felt confident to proceed without any other opinions. She has solid credentials, a lot of experience and performs many of these types of surgeries. Dr. Peters explained everything thoroughly and I did not feel rushed when asking my many questions.

I wanted to go through with it, but I was really scared. I am 5'5", wear size 6 or 8 pants and was a 34J on top. I was tired of the chronic neck, shoulder and back pain that I endured everyday, painful bras, visits to the chiropractor. Due to covid19, my surgery was postponed twice. That made me rethink my decision, but Stephanie in Dr. Peter's office spent time talking to me on the phone and answering my many emails/concerns. She helped me through it and I'm so thankful.

Besides fearing the actual surgery, my biggest worry was what size will I be afterwards. Since so many women wear the wrong sized bra, it's difficult for a doctor to tell you what size you will be. After agonizing over this, looking at hundreds of photos on RealSelf and talking to Stephanie, I told Dr. Peters to do what she thought best. She went with medium and I am very pleased with the results. I am 4 weeks post-surgery, healing well and think I'm around a D cup, which is proportionate to my body. I feel normal for the first time in my life. This is a life-changing surgery. My pains are gone, I stand up straighter and just feel happy overall. If you're considering this surgery, I highly recommend Dr. Lisa Peters. She's terrific! (and a nice person)

Dr. Peters, Thank you so much for such a successful surgery! My breasts look amazing! You rock!

– C.I.

Dr. Peters is an AMAZING Dr! I had a great reduction with a FNG & I can't be more happier with my results! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND

– D.H.

Dr. Peters and her staff made every layer of my experience a great one.  They were always pleasant and extremely helpful and knowledgeable in any questions or concerns I had regarding my procedure.  I would recommend them in a heartbeat!

– S.M.

They made me feel so comfortable went through everything and gave me all the details Dr. Lisa & Stephanie help me with any questions I have and respond fast. Cant wait for approval to get a breast reduction!

– S.A.

Dr. Peters completed a blepharoplasty and my results are far above my expectations.  I also receive quarterly Botox and yearly/bit early filler cosmetic procedures by Lauren and couldn’t  be more happy with my smiling face. Thank you all at the office for your professional and kind service.

– T.B.

Dr. Peters and team are absolutely amazing.! Stephanie and Lauren were so responsive and patient in answering all my questions. Definitely made the right choice having Dr. Peters as my surgeon!

– S.O.

I first saw Dr. Peters at a very scary time in my life. Breast cancer had made a reappearance in the same breast that had been treated 12 years earlier with lumpectomy and radiation. Mastectomy was the only option, and my surgeon insisted that I speak first to a plastic surgeon regarding reconstruction. He recommended Dr. Peters.

Dr. Peters spent a great deal of time examining, listening, and then making her recommendations. I immediately felt at ease and left with my questions answered. I opted for placement of a tissue expander at the time of the mastectomy. Throughout the process of saline injections and then permanent silicone implant and opposite breast lift, Dr. Peters could not have been more supportive, competent, or attentive. I am very pleased with my new ‘shape’ and am so grateful that Dr. Peters is my physician.

I don’t typically take the time to review businesses/providers, but my experience with Dr. Peters was unlike any other. I had a breast reduction surgery last month, and everything from the initial consultation, to the day-of surgery and follow-up with Dr. Peters and her staff far exceeded my expectations. Dr. Peters and her team worked efficiently while also taking the time to address every one of my concerns. Stephanie helped me through so many questions that I had and made sure I was totally set up prior to the surgery.

Dr. Peters is truly a miracle worker. Her expertise, knowledge, and confidence in her skill were the perfect combination that allowed me to place full trust in her. And on the day of surgery, I knew exactly what I was getting. I’m now about 4 weeks out from surgery and could not be any happier with the results. I am amazed at how symmetrical everything is, as well as how tidy and unnoticeable the incisions are. My breasts feel and look absolutely perfect - all thanks to Dr. Peters!

– M.L.

Dear Dr. Peters, I wanted to say thank you, thank you, thank you for the amazing job you did on my breast reduction surgery! My new girls look incredible and I could not be happier with the final results. You are clearly a gifted surgeon and a terrific doctor who cares deeply about your patients, I am so grateful to have had you and Stephanie guide me thru this life changing surgery.

– T.S.

I just wanted to send you a note to say thank you for doing such a great job on my mini face lift. This card really says it all. People will forget what you said and people will forget what you did – but people will never forget how you made them feel. You made me feel like I was doing the right thing. You made me feel like I was being heard, you made me feel confident in my decision to have the procedure done. Thank you for making me feel 15 years younger and looking it too!

– B.C.

March 17th will be the three-year anniversary of the breast reduction procedure you performed on me. I cannot thank you enough for the amazing results – both physically and emotionally speaking. The day of surgery was the best day of my life. I have very minimal scarring; and whatever scars I do have leave me feeling very proud when I look at them. I always think of you and your caring attention whenever March 17th rolls around. I am so glad I put my trust in you and I am very grateful for the results. Thank you again, Dr. Peters, for the new beginning!

– L.B.

You had called me as a follow up about a week ago. I was out of town. I want to tell you how much I appreciated your follow up call. I have worked in the medical field for years and have never seen such professionalism and follow up. You far exceeded my expectations. I have never had a follow up weeks after the procedure. I would recommend you to others at any given time. Please as you advance in your career do not forget the simple things. Thanks for all and I will see you at our follow up appointment.

– L.O.

Very pleased with Dr. Lisa Peter's work and bed side manner. She makes you feel so comfortable and even called me the day after surgery to see how I was doing. Everyone in the office are so kind and friendly. Stephanie and Marjena have always been really helpful with any questions I have had. I had emergency gallbladder surgery 2 months after surgery with Dr. Peter's and received an email from staff wishing me a speedy recovery. I would recommend Dr. Peters and have referred her to a few friends also looking to have a breast reduction. Thank you all for everything!

– K.G.

I went in to see Dr. Peter's for a breast reduction. She spent a lot of time with me explaining what to expect and what my options were. She was very patient and was always open to questions and concerns. I am a very large woman and she took my M sized breasts down to a size I could live with. I feel like a new person. I'm super happy with the quality of her work, the professionalism of her staff, and her post- operative care. There is also a parking garage a block away, which is super convenient.

10/10 recommend if you are looking to have a breast reduction!

I was looking for a doctor who could perform a breast reduction surgery back in December (and definitely preferred to have a female surgeon as I felt more comfortable that way) and after scouring google reviews for surgeons in my area who had great reviews for breast surgeries I (thank goodness!) found Dr. Peters. After meeting with her I decided I did not want to look for any other possible surgeons. I ended up asking about scheduling surgery that week, and by New Year's they had called to confirm my surgery date after seeing if my insurance company would cover it. (Which they did! It was amazing!)  ((Thanks, Stephanie!)) The staff is always super friendly and they always made me feel very comfortable and welcome. My first visit was pre-pandemic and my surgery still went on as scheduled despite being in the middle of the pandemic, which was very lucky and I'm so grateful that it could go on as scheduled. (Second week of May) The surgery was pretty much painless and was a great experience. Recovery was fast as well. Dr. Peters is a great surgeon. She was able to my breasts smaller than I ever thought possible (from a 36H to a 36C). As a girl who spent all of high school and half of college being known for my bust size, I cried when I realized it was possible to have breasts that 'fit' me and I wouldn't have to suffer from back and shoulder pain anymore. I feel that a lot of my insecurities were lifted after having this surgery!

Post-surgery appointments were very safe and socially distanced. I never once felt unsafe or exposed when it comes to following CDC guidelines. I hope that maybe someone reads this review who is looking to potentially have a breast reduction and this encourages them to do so. I waited 6 years for it and it was 100% the best decision I ever made and I am so happy with the way my body looks now! Dr. Peters and her staff are amazing and I can't thank them enough!

I had surgery in August and could not be happier with the results. I consulted with two other plastic surgeons before electing to proceed with Dr. Peters and am very grateful for her expertise. Dr. Peters underpromised and overdelivered, unlike some of the others I spoke with. My results are truthfully better than I expected. Her surgery coordinator, Stephanie, was also AMAZING. We had several reschedules due to Covid, and she was extremely communicative and able to get me rescheduled quickly. I highly recommend.

– R.S.

Dr. Peters is the Best ! I am 2 weeks post op for a breast reduction and I am in love. Thank you so much for this life changing experience, she was very knowledgeable and confident, which helped make this process stress free. I never really knew how insecure I was about my body until my breast were gone. I haven’t stopped looking in the mirror yet.  I still have a lot of healing left but I’m so happy about this decision.

– C.G.

I want to thank you for your kindness/compassion and attention to detail! I an so happy with the results of my breast reduction. The quality of my life has changed for the better! My level of confidence has increased and my back, neck, & shoulder pain have disappeared. I am now working with a trainer so that my outside appearance can match how great I feel on the inside. You are simply amazing! I do have one simple request for you, please expand your presence on social media & YouTube! You have such a wonderful personality and I know how much people research doctors before their procedures. It can only get better because you are so great!

– J.M.

Thank you very much for everything. This procedure has really changed my life forever. You made me feel like a family member. You truly care about your patients. When I look in the mirror I love what I see. It’s only been a month, but the results are wonderful. My incision scars are healing just right. I can’t thank you and your staff enough. I will be back for my next life changing experience. Oh, by the way, now I have a reason to shop! I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

– S.F.

As the year anniversary of my surgery – breast reduction, tummy tuck and inner leg & back lipo – approaches, I wanted to write and tell you how happy I am with the results – seeing the before and after photos you sent me reconfirmed how pleased I am. The entire process – from initial consultation, through the surgery to the post-op visits were all handled with professionalism and care that I really appreciated. You made this dramatic endeavor for me a surmountable experience! Should any perspective patient request a reference, feel free to have them contact me. Thanks to you I look and feel great.

– K.W.

First, I wanted to write to give an extra special huge thank you, thank you!! You are definitely my hero! My tummy and arms are beautiful! I couldn’t have asked for better results than what I have now. I have never seen my body in the way that I see it now and I am oh so happy. I feel sexy and great! My husband thanks you too. Even though he didn’t care one way or another, he loves the new and improved me along with the sexy belly ring. I feel terrific and would do it again in a heartbeat and look forward to working with you in the future for my thigh lift.

– K.C.

Wonderful experience with everything from the initial consult to the follow up appointments. The assistants Stephanie and Lauren were incredibly wonderful and attentive through the entire process. In fact, I went on vacation a few weeks after my surgery and forgot a medicine back home, the administrative staff was amazing and not only got me a prescription to get it again out of state, but also looked up the closest location to me that could fill it and on CHRISTMAS DAY!

Everyone was so caring and attentive, I felt like a VIP patient the entire time! Even now, 8 weeks post-op they are still checking in on me to make sure no complications have come up and to see if I have any new questions.

LAUREN! From the moment you walk in and are greeted by the front desk staff, to when the service is over you feel VERY VALUED AS A PAYING CUSTOMER! Laurens skills are out of this world! I had my lips done with her and was very nervous but after doing thorough homework and research on her work I was finally convinced to give it a chance! I absolutely do not regret my service she was amazing and very patient with me because I was very nervous! We mapped out my lips and she was very attentive with what I wanted!

The pain was very minimal! She made me feel the most comfortable that someone can feel while getting needles injected into their lips! Highly recommend seeing Lauren for all of your cosmetic procedures! Definitely will be going back for more!

– A.S.

I have been contemplating getting surgery for years however when I finally took that big leap it was the best decision I ever made. My consultation was smooth and easy and we picked the best plan for me which was a REVERSE tummy tuck. Very rare situation but I felt completely comfortable with this decision. Surgery was smooth and even recovery time was just not what I expected. Barely any pain was back at work in just 2 weeks ( but I was ready to get back just a week and a half in) I'm now 1month post op and my results are amazing. I'm loving every part of my body now!

– T.A.

I had such a great experience with the nurse practitioner, Lauren at Dr. Peters office that I needed to write a review. She did my lip and cheek filler and I am in love with the results! Lauren was professional and so knowledgeable about all of the procedures/products I had questions about. She took her time and was very precise with her work. She created the exact lip shape/pout I was looking for and it looks so natural! She paid attention to my concerns for my cheeks/midface and  I felt instantly refreshed when I left the office. After seeing her Instagram account and all of her awesome results I knew I was in great hands-- I can't wait to go back for my next session!

– L.F.

I just had my breast reduction on December 13th and I could not be happier with the outcome and the experience Dr. Peters and her office offers. They made me feel so comfortable in the office and the day of surgery. This process has been awesome and they made me feel very comfortable along the way. I DO NOT regret my decision and already feel physically better and it has not even been a month. I would highly recommend Dr. Peters for all your needs. Thanks for everything:)

– A.B.

I was treated by Lauren, Dr. Peter's NP. Lauren is very thorough, and her attention to detail is excellent. She really listens to what your goals are and addresses what her goals are for you as well, and ultimately delivers incredible results! I had a chemical peel and botox injections in the forehead and brow area. Each of the procedures were explained in detail fully before we did anything. This was the first time I've ever had a chemical peel or botox injections. I didn't feel any pain, even from the botox injections. Her injection technique is amazing!! The office is very nice and clean. I highly recommend Lauren and will be continuing subsequent treatments with her. My family members will be going to her for treatment as well.

– S.R.

When I first met Dr. Peters, I knew instantly I wanted to work with her. Extremely professional, thorough, detailed and very comforting. Dr. Peters embodies all the qualities you want in a surgeon. My life will be better everyday because of her. The staff is amazing - they shared excitement in my journey and gave continued support. My entire experience from my first consultation, through surgery, and post-op appointments was nothing short of extraordinary. Amazing team that does amazing work.

– S.P.

I felt super supported throughout the entire process; from the very first consultation to the follow-ups after surgery. I am very satisfied with the results, and appreciate personalized care by Dr. Peters and all staff. Thank you!! Dr. Lisa exceeded all my expectations with everything you would want in a great surgeon. After having large and heavy breast for most of my life, I am very happy to have smaller, well shaped, and lifted breast. Welcome to pain free life!!! Thank you, Dr. Peters!!!!

– M.D.

I am so genuinely grateful I found Dr. Peters. Without her and Stephanie, I probably would never have been able to get my breast reduction. This surgery changed my entire life for the better. Not only can I breathe for ONCE in YEARS, I can finally run again. I only wanted to be able to walk across my house without getting winded and now I can even run. Dr. Peters is a kind, knowledgeable surgeon. She addressed all of my concerns from beginning to end. Stephanie and Lauren were also true God-sends. I cannot tell you how many times I emailed them with worries; they always put me at ease. I am 3.5 weeks post surgery and my scars are so so minor. My chest is the size I always dreamt of and I feel so confident. I even cry with gratitude at times when I look in the mirror because I finally look like the person that I have always hoped myself to be: someone healthy and happy. The day I found this office, I knew my life was never going to be the same and god am I so grateful I made an appointment. I would suggest this office for literally ANY procedure! They will take care of you, help you get passed by you insurance, and treat you like family. I always fit in there and cannot wait to go back for my three month appointment. That surgery will forever be one of the best days of my life. Thank you Dr. Peters, Stephanie, and Lauren for everything.

After reading the other reviews, I wanted to update mine to explain some more. The front desk staff were incredibly kind and friendly. They were very efficient in checking my insurance and I was notified before going into the office how much the consultation would check. The PPE utilized in the office is brilliant and DOES NOT effect how the staff interacts with you. I had a very short wait time in the office, which is impressive because I have had to wait even up to a few hours to see other doctors that are not a part of this clinic in other situations.

I never felt an ounce of judgement at this clinic. I came in with 32I breasts and have always been self conscious. Dr. Peters was professional. Consultations are short because they are just consultations. I am so upset that two negative reviews have put this incredible surgeon to 4 stars, when she deserves 5, 6, the whole galaxy, for the amount of good she does. I really hope that all future clients will read all of the reviews and understand that people with negative reviews, especially in a case of plastic surgery, are often speaking out of personal pain. I do truly understand that, but PLEASE KNOW that Dr. Lisa Peters and her staff will change your life for the better. <3

I had a breast reduction procedure with Dr. Peters. I cannot express what great care she and her team gave to me. I not only felt listened to and cared for but I completely feel she has changed my life for the better. Stop looking she is the one!

– L.G.

Dr. Peters and Team are Amazing! Highly trained, highly educated ..l wouldn’t go anywhere else! Lauren Marion, NP did an amazing job and I feel so much better about myself. From start to finish, she is very professional and have your best interest at heart. Don't call or go anywhere else !!!..Love Them!

– J.B.

I just wanted to drop you a note of thanks for everything. I’m so pleased with how my breasts look and I’m only 1 week post surgery. I can’t wait to see them in the next few months. You made me feel so comfortable and confident. Thank you again!

– K.M.

Many thanks for all your work on my behalf! As you know, my insurance changed and, as a result, I’m not eligible to receive covered services from you. I wish so much that you could have performed my surgery. I learned a lot from you, and I appreciated your helpful spirit. Thanks again for all your help.

– A.R.

I found Dr. peters by googling around for the best surgeon in the Chicagoland area and after viewing her website and reading the reviews I knew she was the one to choose. Dr. Peters performed a breast reduction on me when I was 18. She did an absolutely phenomenal job and was very helpful throughout the process leading up to the surgery. Her team was amazing as well!

The front desk ladies were very friendly and Stephanie was awesome with discussing the financial aspect of the surgery. Since I was on the younger side of the age group that gets this surgery done, I was very worried about how it would turn out and if it would be different for me. I can see now that I was worrying for nothing. I cannot say enough how great of a job dr. Peters did! I love how my breasts look now and wouldn’t have changed my decision for anything.
