  • Hello, I'm Dr. John Q. Cook and I'd like to welcome you to the Whole Beauty® Institute educational website.

    We've put together information that should be very helpful to you if you're considering elective plastic surgery, or any of the advanced medical therapies that can be used to help refine or enhance a person's appearance.

    For the surgical procedures, I put together ten questions you should ask and ten things you should know about many of the most common operations that are done in plastic surgery. If you take the time to review these you'll find that your consultation will be guided and direct.

    In terms of the medical treatments there many other sources of information that we've put together on the website that will be equally helpful. I hope you'll take the time to visit the website and share with us your opinion and observations. If there's anything that we haven't covered please contact us either on the website or directly through the offices either in Chicago or Winnetka.

    Thank you so much for visiting the Whole Beauty® Institute educational website today.

Both of our plastic surgery offices are in extremely convenient locations, but are located in buildings that are private and discrete. Our offices in the Olympia Center, just off North Michigan Avenue, Chicago's premier location for fashion and premium retail, overlook the historic water tower.

Our Chicago Office in The Gold Coast

The Chicago plastic surgery offices are extremely convenient to patients in the North Michigan Avenue, Gold Coast, Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Bucktown, Millennium Park, West Loop, and South Loop neighborhoods.  For patients who come to us from out-of-state or from international locations, we are a five minute walk from many of Chicago's finest hotels including The Ritz Carlton, The Peninsula, The Four Seasons, The Park Hyatt, and The Drake.

Our Winnetka Office in The North Shore

Our Winnetka plastic surgery office is in a private building on Green Bay Road in the heart of the elegant North Shore. Patients from the surrounding suburbs of Kenilworth, Wilmette, Evanston, Glencoe, Northfield, Glenview, Northbrook, Highland Park, and Lake Forest will find that our offices are just a short drive away.  Patients from Barrington, Oak Brook, Hinsdale, and other areas in the west suburban and northwest suburban locations are pleasantly surprised by the ease of access from the Tri-state tollway.  Many patients who come to our practice from Milwaukee, Madison, and other areas of southern Wisconsin comment on the convenience of the Winnetka location, as it is approximately an hour’s drive from the state line.

Our Chicago and Winnetka plastic surgery offices are located on Chicago’s Gold Coast Michigan Avenue and in a private stone building in Winnetka on the North Shore’s Green Bay Road, serving domestic and international patients from all over the world.
