5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Excellent Results - Vernon Hills, IL

Because I know from the results of my surgery that Dr. G is an excellent cosmetic surgeon.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Facelift and Other Procedures - Evanston, IL

Dr. G. did blepharoplasties (in 1999) and a facelift (in 2009) on me, as well as several minor procedures throughout the years. His work was excellent and he was very responsive to any of my concerns. That is why I have kept returning to him for all of my work. Although I am 63, many think that I am in my 40s.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

51yo 36aa/36a Going with Allergen Style 15, 304cc - Vernon Hills, IL

I think he is a very patient doctor, really answers your questions. Gives you the pro and con of the sizes chosen. Looking forward to a great surgery, he is on of the best.

5 out of 5 stars Ear Lobe Surgery

Happy In Chicago - Vernon Hills, IL

Doctor G. closed my old ear piercing in my left ear which had become ugly looking large 2-3inch diameter piercing. Later he pierced that ear again. Although it was a minor procedure what really impressed me that Dr G. took the time to answer my questions and was very careful through out the procedure. After the procedure he gave me detailed instructions how to take care of my stiches and incase of any burning or pain or infection I should contact the office immediately. Also gave me medication to be used later to prevent hyper-pigmention of the treated area as I have darker skin (I am of Asian origin). Throughout my interactions I found Dr G. very knowledgeble, caring & highly professional. I am quite happy with my results.

Thanks, Dr. G - Vernon Hills, IL
