Sreekant Cherukuri, MD

Dr. Sreek Cherukuri is NorthWest Indiana’s leader in minimally-invasive, no-downtime cosmetic procedures of the face and neck.  He has helped thousands of patients look and feel younger since 2003.  He has been regularly featured as an expert in the local media for his unique approach to facial cosmetic surgery.

Dr. Cherukuri’s practice philosophy is based first and foremost upon careful attention to your specific concerns.  “One of my goals in facial plastic surgery is to produce results that appear as if the person were born with it”, explains Dr. Cherukuri.  “In other words, people should not be able to tell if any cosmetic surgery has been performed because the results look so natural.”
