5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

My Life Has Changed - Chicago, IL

From the first moment my experiences with Dr. Gikas are positive.

He approached to me and my case very professionally, meticulously, thoughtfully and he gave me precise suggestions what is the best for me. I did with him rhinoplasty,...

Septoplasty and Rhinoplasty with Dr. Elias Gikas- the Best Decision I've Made. - Chicago, IL

Just to let you know haw good is Dr. Gikas in what he do. We all have watched Extreme makeover , you know haw plastic surgeons take pictures of what they told your nose will look like and they draw lines of what they will cut. So, Dr. Gikas just came in preop. room, asked how am I, looked at my profile, said "Ok, we're good" and now 40 days after surgery I have the best outcome. Also, at the time of taking out stitches and splint etc. he was very careful and gentle, explained post operative care procedures, what should I be aware of, what should I expect etc.. Just go to his office , you won't make a mistake.

Rhinoplasty with Dr. Gikas Was the Best Decision I Have Ever Made!!!! - Chicago, IL

My nose was hideous- huge bulbous tip, large nostrils, wide bridge, bump and all. Dr. Gikas spent 5 hours operating on me giving me my dream nose as well as fixing a deviated septum and sinus issues. I love my new nose and I can breathe so much better. I highly recommend him. He even went as far as to remove fat as I am very thick-skinned, in order to make my tip extra perfect. He is a...

Excellent Care for Deviated Septum and Nose Surgery - Chicago, IL

I would recommend Dr. Gikas to anyone who is considering have any type of nasal surgery. Before choosing Dr. Gikas, I had consultations with two other surgeons. Neither of them took the time to clearly and slowly explain which procedure I need in order to correct and reconstruct my deviated septum and nose. Following the surgery, Dr. Gikas came several times to check up on me and see how I...

19 Years Old, Rhinoplasty - Chicago, IL

Before the rhinoplasty procedure, I was afraid and completely against the idea because I never had surgery before. Luckily, I went to Dr. Gikas after searching for a good surgeon and immediately scheduled an appointment for my rhinoplasty. The hospital is very clean and welcoming. Dr. Gikas and his assistant are very friendly and know exactly what they are talking about. Although I did have...

Breast Reconstruction - Chicago, IL

I had breast reconstruction by Dr. Gikas in 2008 and recently had a second surgery. In the past seven years, I have found him to be kind, caring and respectful. His staff is friendly, warm, caring and professional and respond promptly to any questions or requests that I have. Dr. Gikas was very reassuring when I went through both surgeries and thoroughly explained everything to me. He...
