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.
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.
