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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
“Whenever someone has more than one area that they would like improved, I ask myself how I can link these procedures together to maximize the patient’s experience. I work very hard to devise individualized treatment plans that reflect and incorporate the patient’s desired goals in a time-efficient and rational manner,” says Dr. Geldner, whose focus on the patient started when he was very young. At age 18, while working as a surgical orderly, he was preparing a young child for his upcoming skin graft to correct a severe burn injury. The younger Peter Geldner saw what had been previously grafted and found it unsightly. But to the child, the skin graft was his ticket to normalcy, erasing the injury from his body and his self-image. “I suddenly had incredible clarity, realizing that within plastic surgery, results are subjective. What matters is how patients see themselves after surgery and how it improves their well-being.”

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.
