Non-surgical body contouring and cellulite treatment.

Why Choose The Whole Beauty® Institute For All Your Non-Surgical & Medical Aesthetic Needs.


Dr. Cook has extensive experience with all body contouring procedures and has performed well over 1000 body contour surgeries. Many of these procedures can be performed under local anesthesia in our Chicago and Winnetka offices.


Dr. Cook was one of the first plastic surgeons in the Midwest to work with advanced radiofrequency devices (BodyTite®, FaceTite,®AccuTite®, and Morpheus®) that allow for skin and deeper tissue tightening, along with liposuction. This allows him to treat patients who have mild to moderate loose skin, since he can tighten and reduce fat without the need to remove skin.


At the Whole Beauty® Institute, we offer patients the complete spectrum of non-invasive, minimally invasive, and more extensive surgical procedures related to body contouring. We have extensive experience to know which will be the best choice for each patient. We also offer a wide range of aesthetic treatments that can further advance the results of most surgical procedures.


For larger body contouring procedures, such as Abdominoplasty and Mommy Makeover, we provide recovery in a 5-star luxury hotel with an experienced nurse to get your recovery off to a good and safe start.

Target Cellulite and Excess Fat with RF Energy in Chicago and Winnetka

Radiofrequency energy is a versatile tool for aesthetic contouring, especially when employed by an advanced device and applied by an experienced clinician. With BodyFX at Chicago and Winnetka’s Whole Beauty® Institute, Dr. John Cook and his team can use the RF energy to uniformly heat the targeted area and accomplish two changes: cellulite reduction and fat reduction.

Many people mistakenly believe cellulite is only caused by fat, but the cause is more complex. The three elements of cellulite are irregular fat under the skin, thinning of the overlying skin, and bands that connect the skin’s surface to deeper layers. In some people, the bands tighten and increase the “lumpiness” of the fat. Increased tension—due to causes that include but are not limited to growing fat cells—creates the “cottage cheese” look on the buttocks and thighs. Nonsurgical BodyFX® can address both cellulite and moderate areas of excess fat by pulling the targeted tissue up and heating it with radiofrequency energy, which damages subdermal fat cells and leads to a reduction in volume. This can slim down the abdomen, flanks, hips, and thighs while reducing the outward pressure put on the skin that contributes to cellulite. The technology behind the BodyFX treatment also powers Evolve, BodyTite, and other nonsurgical contouring options available at Whole Beauty® Institute. You can learn about your best option during a consultation with our experienced team.
