Seeking to take the skills he provides and the services he offers to the next level, Dr. Peter D. Geldner is analytical and inquisitive, only integrating the advancements he feels will help heighten the care he can deliver. “There is a tendency to embrace the ‘next big thing’ as it becomes available, but that’s not what we do at The Geldner Center; we only integrate proven, educational and results-oriented technologies.”  

About My Practice

What is your philosophy when it comes to cosmetic procedures?

My goal is to bring patients into the diagnosis process and devise customized plans that target their specific objectives. It’s not about what I think patients need; it’s about what is important to them.

How do you ensure safety for your patients?

We make sure every patient is a good candidate before any surgical procedure is considered. Safety and efficacy are our biggest concerns so procedures are performed at either nearby hospitals or surgical centers where patients benefit from advanced technologies and accredited safety provisions.

How do you ensure patient satisfaction?

Our nurse, Lynn; patient coordinators Marilyn, Agnieszka and Tricia; licensed medical aestheticians, Deanna, Lindsey, Mihaela and Beata; and our entire team, go beyond to ensure that each patient’s experience exceeds their expectations.

About Me

Dr. Geldner: What is something your patients may not know about you?

I’ve recently been named a Top Plastic Surgeon by U.S. News & World Report and been featured in Chicago Magazine’s Top Doctors, as well as on TV networks and radio shows.

Dr. Geldner: what is the best advice you’ve received?

The best advice I have ever received is to always listen to my patients—their expectations, needs, concerns and desires always must be heard and respected.

Which procedures do you specialize in?

I made my reputation in the area of breast surgery, including breast enhancement and breast lifts, also having an expertise in revising breast augmentations originally performed by other surgeons, fat transfer to the breast, and use of the new cohesive gel implants.

A Minute With

  3. My most unique personality trait


  4. Celeb photos my patients most often bring in

    Angelina Jolie when they want their lips injected; Kate Upton when they want a breast augmentation

  8. What i can’t live without

  1. What surgical trends are you seeing?
    What our experts say:

    Mommy Makeovers with patients wanting to achieve athletic, healthy-looking results; high-definition body contouring; and natural-looking facelifts.

  2. What can I do to enhance my body post-pregnancy?
    What our experts say:

    For many women, after giving birth, it’s not uncommon for the body to change. Skin that was once taut is now lax; breasts that were once perky now sag; and formerly slim figures are now plagued by stubborn laxity that won’t respond to diet and exercise. Mommy Makeovers, which consist of procedures aimed at targeting the breasts, abdomen, love handles and thighs, can synergistically give you back the body you once enjoyed.

  3. What new treatments are you using for facial rejuvenation?
    What our experts say:

    The recognition that facial volume deficits result in an aged look has led me to use fat transfers and differential soft tissue lifting to maximize the patients appearance for a youthful but natural look. Additionally, we are using Dermapen® combined with chemical peels to enhance youthfulness.
