About Jason M. Petrungaro, MD

Having Plastic Surgery is without a doubt a significant event and an intensely personal experience. Finding the right surgeon is the single most important part of the decision-making process. Thank you for taking the time to visit my profile and read a bit about me and my practice. My name is Doctor Jason Petrungaro, and I specialize in aesthetic surgeries of the breast, body, and face.

As a proponent of patient-centered care, I believe that effective communication is essential between the surgeon and the patient because we become a team once we decide to proceed with surgery. The common thread throughout the entire process is open communication, and I take great pride in truly listening to my patients. Like snowflakes, each person is different, and each patient has their own definition of beauty. Together we will define your goals and develop a highly-specialized treatment plan that will help you achieve natural, long-lasting results that will be exceptionally gratifying for both patient and surgeon.

As a board certified Plastic Surgeon, it is my job to guide my patients through every step of the surgical process, from initial consultation through postoperative recovery. It is also my job to be up to date with the most recent surgical procedures and patient safety protocols. And being board certified in Plastic Surgery means that I was formally trained in a recognized Plastic Surgery residency program and that I am trusted to both expertly perform the surgeries in my specialty and to be able to safely take care of my patients both before and after surgery.

Patients are the reason doctors exist. I truly respect that fact and dedicate myself and my Plastic Surgery practice to achieving the highest standards of honesty, integrity, professionalism, and surgical expertise. At Petrungaro Plastic Surgery, we Make Your Beautiful Happen!

Professional Background

I received my undergraduate education at the University of Notre Dame followed by Indiana University School of Medicine, where I received my M.D. degree. I then went on to complete a General Surgery residency at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, a Plastic Surgery residency at the University of Tennessee in Memphis, and a Hand Surgery fellowship at the University of Rochester Medical Center in Rochester, New York.

After completing all of my surgical training, I joined the academic faculty as an Assistant Professor of Surgery at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. There I cared for patients of all ages and helped train the future Plastic Surgeons in the residency program.

After three years in academic medicine, I decided to start a private practice and returned home to the Chicagoland area. Petrungaro Plastic Surgery opened its doors in Munster, Indiana in early 2015 and we haven't looked back since. My love for aesthetic surgeries of the breast, body, and face has only intensified and is now the exclusive focus of our practice.

How Dr. Petrungaro goes beyond

I believe that the entire surgical process should feel organized, professional, and custom-tailored to YOU. I personally meet with every single new patient during their initial consultation and first sit down with him or her in my office to discuss their desires and goals, followed by an appropriately chaperoned exam performed by me and finally the formulation of a treatment plan and price quote. There are no salespeople or patient coordinators trying to sell you surgery at my office. Between myself and my staff, you will be given the expert care and attention you deserve before, during, and well after your surgery.
