Dr. Geldner recommended a tummy tuck after another doctor had suggested just lipo. He also recommended a lolipop lift with my implants instead of the crescent lift that had been previously recommended by a doctor who knew I was very reluctant to have those procedures because of scarring. Dr. Geldner told me straight out that I would not be happy with the results if I went with the lipo and crescent, and I knew he was right. Dr. Geldner did not oversell himself. In fact he understated how good of a result I was going to see. I am ten days out and honestly am AMAZED at what I can only describe as a true transformation. My incisions look better at 1week than most of the photos I see at two months or longer post surgery. You can tell from the incision, to the perfect implant placement and lift even to the shape of my belly button, that Dr. Geldner put A lot of time and really worked to give me the body I wanted. In fact he spent 5 hours perfecting my tuck, lift, implants and abdominal vaser lipo. I look better than I had even let myself hope I would, which is such an incredible feeling. Dr. Geldner was also VERY sensitive to my extreme anxiety when it comes to surgery. He worked with a fantastic anesthesiologist and the two of them actually had me veery relaxed and confident before surgery, something that is pretty remarkable considering that a year before with another doctor for different procedures, I actually pulled the IV out of my arm and left the operating room before surgery. to go from that to feeling comfortable was amazing. For what it is worth, I am also a medical malpractice attorney in Chicago. There are a handful of doctors who I would trust to perform cosmetic procedures on me. I chose Dr. Geldner and enthusiastically recommend him to anyone.Updated on 26 Feb 2011:

Dr. G and his staff were incredible. I asked tons of questions and saw lots of photos. Dr. G was knowledgeable and professional. I felt confident after my consultation and had Dr. G perform a breast lift and liposuction. My results are fantastic. I feel so much more comforatable about my appearance.

I researched a lot of Doctors including Dr. Dayan, a famous Dr. here in Chicago. I didn't feel comfortable with Dayan or his staff. Dr. Geldner is a perfectionist who does his best no matter how small the procedure you're having. That's the sign of a meticulous Doctor, which is what I wanted. Geldner has had a lot of high profile clients and he teaches other plastic surgeons complicated procedures. He's the kind of Doctor you can trust. His staff is excellent, very friendly and down to earth. I can't say enough good things about Geldner and his staff.
