“I had surgery with Dr. Geldner in January. My experience was nothing short of amazing. The staff at the Hinsdale location treated me with respect and cared about making sure all of my questions and concerns were answered. Mandy went above and beyond ,taking the time to call on many occasions and sit through SO many phone conversations to ease my nerves, answer …and RE answer all of my questions.I cant say enough wonderful things. Dr. Geldner is very straight forward and patient focused. He took personal time of his own to look into a health condition i had as a child before moving forward to see that i was properly taken care of. Dr.Gelder did more than just preform a stellar surgery. He and his staff gave me a second chance at confidence that i never thought id get back. If your reading the reviews , trying to decide if The Gelder Center would meet the precious standards of care your searching for, look no further. You’ll be in wonderful hands.”

“Dr. Geldner, ‘Thank you’ feels so little compared to the emotions I have inside. You are not only an artist and doctor, you are a humanitarian. I never thought I would look normal again. After meeting you I had hope that someone actually would care enough to take the time and figure the problem out. I love that you did not get easily offended. I love that you and your staff never made me feel rushed or like just another “Number”. I cannot believe how beautiful the results are. Thank you for your patience, you perfectionism and most of all for caring.” Judy

“I bought Groupons for six laser hair removal (LHR) treatments at three different locations, including the Geldner Center. I was looking for cheap treatments and was not committed to any of the three businesses. Now there’s nowhere else I will go and that is because of Deanna Stellato.
I started seeing Deanna and was so impressed by her professionalism, knowledge, and honesty that I chose to have the other LHR treatments I wanted done here. She not only knows her stuff but is warm and always puts you at ease, which is nice if you’re having, um, delicate areas worked on.
But don’t let her sweet smile and pleasant demeanor fool you – when she puts on the wraparound sunglasses and grabs her laser gun, she’s like the Dirty Harry of LHR, if you’ll forgive the pun. And in a few, short minutes, you’re this much closer to a less fuzzier you.” Lourdes (from Yodle)
“It can be difficult to imagine that you could improve yourself with the use of a scalpel. It can be even more difficult to walk into a plastic surgeon’s office that can help you explore areas that you could improve about yourself. ::Drum Roll:: But at Dr. Geldner’s office, you will find a very different plastic surgeon.
I met with Dr. Geldner for an initial consultation. I can only think of 3 words to best describe him: Ethical. Honest. Kind. After speaking with Dr. Geldner, he told me that there was nothing esthetically displeasing about my face. Nothing that needed correction, significant improvement, etc. This isn’t what I expected to hear. I thought that I would hear “sure we can do that…and make it look like this, and sure, I will do that too.” Dr. Geldner takes his approach to plastic surgery with humility and honesty. So, in truth, what I thought I wanted to change, needed to change, hoped to change… was clearly just my vanity. Not seeing what I already had was exactly what I already needed.
Maybe for some women, this is a “duh” or “obvious” afterthought. For me, I was caught up in ways to improve myself to something “ideal.” A huge thanks to Dr. Geldner in helping point out that all I need was a little more self-esteem. Of course Dr. Geldner could have performed the procedures, decided not to have a heart-to-heart… but when I looked in the mirror, there wasn’t anything that was wrong with me in the slightest. I just wanted better… and really… I’m not sure if better… is always, better.
I highly recommend Dr. Geldner if you want an honest and thorough opinion about plastic surgery. If you want a Dr. that isn’t simply interested in taking your money or preying on your vanity. Dr. Geldner asks the important questions.” (from Yodle)
“I just went here for Botox with Dr. Geldner. I love the results. I like my forehead nice and frozen but still natural. Dr. Geldner was able to make it happen. I’m 30, so people don’t imagine I’ve had Botox done which is exactly what I want – freeze the wrinkles, but make it look natural. Competitively priced for a top-notch doctor. I will keep coming back as soon as it wears off!!!
I also recently had my eyebrows and eyeliner permanently tattooed with Deanna Stellato who is the aesthetician at The Geldner Center. Excellent results! People cannot believe it is a tattoo as it looks natural. They were even able to numb my forehead for the eyebrow tattoo.” Liliana (from Yodle)
“I was very apprehensive about having plastic surgery, but I had been talking about having breast reduction surgery for years (I used to be a 32DDD). I was looking for a plastic surgeon who cared about his patients more than his paycheck.
I found everything that I was looking for in Dr. Geldner. He has a great sense of humor and was so comforting during the process. My results are great, and I am so happy I went through the process and chose him as my surgeon.” Kristie (from Yodle)
“Dr. Geldner and his team are the best! I’ve been getting Botox and fillers. Love the results! Always a great experience! Dr. Geldner is the expert!” Dorothy (from Yodle)
“I had a face, neck and brow lift with Dr. Geldner. I was looking tired and old. Dr. Geldner was sensitive, encouraging and extraordinarily knowledgeable. I am delighted with my result. I look exactly like myself, but YEARS younger. Thanks Dr. G and Staff, you have made me not a new me…but the old me from years gone by.” Judy A.
“Love my kids… but couldn’t wait for a Mommy Makeover! I have had 4 children and just wanted my body back. I interviewed 4 plastic surgeons in the Chicago area because this was a really big deal to me. My husband came along too. When I met Dr. Geldner and my husband and I spoke to him…we were convinced that he was the right choice. Boy, was he ever… I have my shape back and am so proud of how I look again. Dr. Geldner, Nurse Lynn and staff… thank you for everything.” Linda B.
“I don’t have a boy butt anymore, and it’s awesome. I have hated the way I look in jeans for as long as I can remember. I can’t fill out any pants, and my swimsuit bottom was always saggy in the back. I hated it. I searched for Plastic Surgeons and a friend of mine who had an amazing breast augmentation and breast lift said, ”You have to go to my plastic surgeon.” So I went to see HER plastic surgeon, Dr. Geldner. He was fantastic. Gave me the lowdown on all of the information I needed to make a decision, and I decided to have Dr. Geldner do a Brazilian Butt Lift with my own fat. I love Dr. G, and I now love how I look in my jeans and bathing suit.” Martha Y.
“I had to buy a dress for an important function and went shopping and realized that none of the dresses I liked looked good on me being a 32A cup. That was it… I decided that I wanted a breast augmentation. I wanted to look good in clothes and even in my pajamas! I saw a bunch of plastic surgeons and they all were nice, but I felt very pressured to sign on for surgery right then and there. It was like talking to used car salesmen. Yuck. Then I went to see Dr. Geldner. He took a great deal of time with me explaining the different type of implants and incisions. We discussed whether a breast lift was a good idea. He was understanding, knowledgeable, compassionate and he understood what I was looking for. He told me this was a big decision and that I should take my time making it and that he would be available should I proceed with the surgery. Oh my goodness… what a breath of fresh air… all the information I wanted, all the time I needed and no pressure. I had Dr. Geldner do my breast aug and I am delighted. I would highly recommend Dr. Geldner and his staff.” Irene P.
“Deanna is the go-to person for the fountain of youth!” MK
“I got a dermapen treatment a few days ago from The Geldner Center and my skin feels and looks amazing now! Added bonus, getting to dish with Deanna for a couple hours.” Gigi
