Dr. Douglas M Sidle has the following 2 specialties
- Plastic Surgery
A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.
An otolaryngologist is more commonly referred to as an ENT, someone that can treat medical issues you may be having with you ears, nose, or throat. This is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the ear, nose, sinuses, larynx (voice box), mouth, throat, head, and neck. These doctors treat patients through both medical and surgical means. For instance, an otolaryngologist may treat an obstruction of the nasal passage, caused by malformation of the nose, through rhinoplasty.

Dr. Sidle is an amazing surgeon and doctor. His PA, Erin, is also fantastic. I went to see him to repair my deviated septum and discuss the potential of a rhinoplasty, as well. I did not hate my nose, nor did I want a drastic change, but I had never been fond of the bump on my nose. After discussing the procedure with him, I decided to have a septoplasty and a rhinoplasty. Dr. Sidle says he is an 'architect' because he fits your nose to your face and that is exactly what he did. I am so incredibly happy with my nose and it continues to 'fit my face'. I can also breathe much better now that my septum is aligned. His small changes allowed me to feel more comfortable in my own skin and embrace my profile. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants a subtle or bid change.
I had a rhinoplasty with Dr. Sidle about 6 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I was going to go to a bunch of consultations, but I couldn't help but feel Dr. Sidle was going to be the one for me right away. He's particularly detailed during my screening. You can tell he really cares about all the very small details. and that is soooo important in this decision. My only concern is that I had bruising for a little more than 7 days after my rhinoplasty, and I was hoping for a little less.
After consulting many plastic surgeons in Chicago, I finally selected Dr. Sidle to perform my Rhinoplasty surgery. I love my new nose--refined, natural and me! And did I mention, I can actually breathe. Dr. Sidle was compassionate, genuine, and very thorough. Dr. Sidle is a talented surgeon with a great reputation at Northwestern and an artist. I am so thrilled with my results and my overall experience was amazing. I would highly recommend him. His staff was wonderful, very attentive, and orchestrated my surgery experience with flawless expertise.
