5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

I Dedicate This Surgery to All the Girls Who Were Mean to Me in High School - Chicago, IL

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:

It's About Me, Not Anyone Else. - Chicago, IL

March 6, 2015 ... Dr. Geldner Rocks! ....Choosing Dr Peter Geldner to perform my procedures was the best decision I have ever made. I have been a patient of his for several years and when the time came I knew he would be my PS and bring along his trusty team of in-office professionals. Dr. Geldner and his group made the entire experience as stress free as they could. Procedures are individualized and you aren’t treated like a number on an assembly line, as he says “it’s about you, not me or the other guy”. From the initial consult to all the pre and post op visits, I’ve always felt in the best of hands. Everyone has a kind word, a laugh and a smile, no matter how many emails I send or questions I asked … I feel more like a friend than a patient and I think that says it all. Experience, training and trust go hand in hand for this type of elective surgery and you will find that at Dr. Geldners office. It is a group effort with Dr. Geldner at the front of the pack, his warm, soft spoken demeanor is comforting. He has a sharp wit and great sense of humor too. I can’t thank him and his team enough for making this a wonderful experience.

Mama's Going to Have a New Belly!!! - Chicago, IL

So far so good!!! A friend of mine who had work done highly recommended Dr. Geldner. I got that warm and fuzzy the first time I met him:) Dr. Geldner took 2.5 hours of his time (free consult) to really inform me on the procedure and all of the concerns that go along with a TT, as well as answer my list of a thousand questions. His office staff and Nurse assistant were all very cheery and warm. I know this is who I was meant to find :)
