COVID-19 Update

Dear Friends and new visitors,

I am first and foremost a medical doctor.  I hold dearly my oath and commitment to aid those in need of medical care and attention.  

A large part of my surgical practice has always been and will continue to be reconstructive surgery (Cancer/Breast/Hand/Craniofacial/Trauma/Micro).  Unfortunately, I can't cure a virus with a scalpel, but I still have much to offer.  During these times, cancers, deformities and traumas do not cease. 

I have built my practice on restoring that which fate and misfortune had taken away.  I hope to bring comfort and reassurance when there is misfortune.  I will continue to practice in the same way.  

I will be open and available to all via personal and direct communication.  I am still on-call and available to the hospitals of Lake County.

Essential appointments can still be scheduled.  I will still see you and treat you as needed.  Feel free to call or message with questions or concerns. 

Please call or text me at cell 847-687-9104 to leave a message.  You may also use our web based Chat widget, Google Duo, Viber, WhatsApp, FB messenger, or Skype.

Dr. Aras Tijunelis

Thank you for your understanding.

Be safe, be well.






At LAKE COUNTY PLASTIC SURGERY, your health and the health of our staff are of the utmost importance.  To ensure your health and the health of our staff, we do follow usual universal precautions in our operating room and office. Additionally, every half hour to an hour we wipe down the waiting room and common spaces with disinfectant.

OUR OFFICE WILL BE CLOSED TO NON-EMERGENT ELECTIVE VISITS AT LEAST UNTIL April 7.  Unfortunately, not all offices are practicing with the same degree of caution and continue to run business as usual.  We certainly hope that you appreciate our concern and return to us when we reopen.  

We can still schedule appointments, take virtual consults and see urgent or post operative patients.  Feel free to text or call Dr. Tijunelis directly with questions or concerns.  TEXT Dr. Tijunelis 847-429-3597
