About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

Keeping in mind the need for creating a unique and private environment for his patients, Dr. Turowski moved his practice several years ago from Chicago’s Gold Coast to the North Shore. He founded the New Horizons Center for Cosmetic Surgery, which quickly became one of the most sought after cosmetic surgery practices in the Midwest. The practice grew quickly, and Dr Turowski expanded our team of surgeons by adding an associate – Dr Leonard Lu. Dr Lu has impeccable credentials from Brown and Northwestern and extensive experience in plastic surgery.
Dr. Turowski’s team includes a very highly experienced surgical team. Pre- and post-operative care is coordinated by a nurse with extensive experience in plastic surgery who is always available to address your questions and to help guide you through the recovery process. Our knowledgeable and caring administrative team members all contribute equally to creating a well-organized and comfortable environment for the Center’s patients.

As a patient, you will spend a significant amount of time in our office. That is why New Horizons is designed to provide you with an esthetically pleasant, relaxed, and friendly environment.
