At The Geldner Center, plastic surgeons Dr. Peter D. Geldner and Dr. Lawrence H. Iteld renovate façades with a bouquet of reconstructive procedures and noninvasive cosmetic tweaks. Named one of the nation's Top Doctors by US News & World Report, Dr. Geldner uses advanced medical technology—including Palomar and Sciton lasers—to help clients look and feel better, whether through face-lifts, eyelid lifts, nose reshaping, or chin augmentation. Lead aesthetician Deanna Stellato, one of four licensed aestheticians on staff, performs skin-renewing chemical peels, which exfoliate the skin and boost its ability to hold moisture while reducing the appearance of fine lines. Clients may also opt to pamper their countenances with classic facials, microdermabrasion, and gentle butterfly kisses from reflections.
Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Leon Forrester Tcheupdjian has not only been in the lipo biz since 1981 but also has authored a textbook on the topic and developed several new surgical tools of the trade. Dr. T., who has dubbed himself "Lipodoc" and is backed up by Liposuction & Cosmetic Surgery Institute's team, specializes in all manner of fat removal and relocation, both by traditional means and with modern laser technology. He also wipes out wrinkles, veins, unwanted hair, and passé tattoos, and he is able to bring his treatments to many, since he speaks five languages, including Armenian, Arabic, and pigeon.
A board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon, Dr. Omeed Memar specializes in liposuction and fat transfer, holds a clinical assistant professorship at Northwestern University, and serves as the medical director of the Academic Dermatology & Skin Cancer Institute. He designs medical devices for fat transfer treatments, and his research has been showcased in leading scientific publications, making him a sought-after expert for speaking engagements and television appearances.
Dr. Memar combines his 12+ years of surgical expertise with an understanding of what it takes for clients to feel comfortable in their skin. A member of the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and a fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, he stays ahead of the latest advancements and can correct aesthetic imbalances ranging from sagging cheeks to acne scars to being a painting by Picasso. Blemishes as varied as spider veins, skin tags, age spots, and birthmarks can be zapped away with a medical-grade laser. Photofacials, peels, and microdermabrasion smooth away dead skin cells, while hair transplants revive depleted manes and resurfacing treatments take years off of hands. Minimal incision face-lifts, tucks, and liposuction, meanwhile, renovate bodies with more permanent solutions. Dr. Memar also specializes in restoring the youthful sparkle to eyes. Drawing on more than 10 years of experience, his eyelid lifts erase the bags and excess skin that drag winks down.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Allan Parungao has written the book on plastic surgery—quite literally, in fact. The co-author of A Woman's Guide to Cosmetic Breast Surgery and Body Contouring, who has also written about surgery for physicians' textbooks and presented his skin-cancer research to a number of physicians' associations, Dr. Parungao knows the concerns and questions that may arise when patients consider plastic surgery. Before beginning any procedure, Dr. Parungao takes time with each client to understand his or her unique goals and desired results, whether from facial, breast, or body-contouring surgery.
Inside their shared offices in Naperville, and Bronzeville, Flawless Cosmetic Medicine Center and Dr. Tinsley & Associates, Inc. team up to provide skincare procedures, products, and education. Since 1996, the practice has performed plastic and cosmetic surgery in Chicago and on Grand Cayman Island. During that time, Dr. Tinsley himself has managed to balance the full-time duties of parenthood with a number of different positions in medicine, including stints as a general surgeon, a trauma surgeon, and a plastic surgeon. He also founded the scarless mole-removal treatment—SMR—which rids skin of moles in a much more effective manner than simply yelling at them to leave.
