I have been a patient of Dr. Geroulis for a number of years and have had 2 surgeries performed by him. I am extremely pleased with the outcomes of those surgeries. His knowledge of medicine and surgical procedures are unsurpassed as are his' skills as a surgeon. As an aside his bed side manner is next to none, and as a person he is a warm caring human being. I would highly recommend Dr. Geroulis above any other physician. Theodore E Bacoyanis

A few years ago I got a face lift. In the beginning when the face was still swellen was not that notable I end up with bumps and a very deep lines on my face. Dr told me that will disappear in time. As the times goes looks worst. I am embarrassed to go in public. I try to get a revised facelift but no doctor will do it, Reeding all the reviews I believe he is the best and not mind to pay his fee , witch were much higher than other doctors charge. A very unhappy client Force to leave with his mistake the rest of my life.

Around five years ago I had rhinoplasty done with a different doctor and around three years after I would always complain about having difficulty breathing. I visited several different doctors and all of them convinced me that this was an allergy problem. I took several allergy medications, washed my nose consistently, etc but still could’t breathe. I lived with this discomfort until around 6 months ago, I got a Ct scan- the results showed that my problem was a result of a structural issue with my nose most likely caused by my rhinoplasty in 2012. I decided that I was too young to live with the uncomfortable and scary feeling of not being able to breathe normally, so after doing a lot of research I chose Dr. Geroulis to perform my septoplasty. I chose to not change the appearance of my nose this time and just fix the structural problems inside. Therefore, the healing process was quicker/ I looked the same after. If you have the same problem, I highly recommend Dr. Geroulis. There was very little downtime after surgery (i went to a party 9 days after surgery) and he gives you plenty of vitamins to take before/after to assist in the healing process. It’s almost two months post surgery and I already can breath without hesitating (couldn’t do this before) and am able to sleep much better at night. Overall, Dr Geroulis is a highly knowledgeable, professional, and kind doctor who genuinely cares about his patients. I was also very impressed and pleased by his knowledgeable and helpful staff.

Fifteen years ago, Dr. Geroulis performed my rhinoplasty. I was elated with the beautiful and very natural results. Two years ago, Anthony Geroulis lifted my neck and brows. Again, I was absolutely ecstatic with the results. Dr. Geroulis is a highly skilled surgeon. He not only made me look ten years younger with a very natural lift, he also minimized a scar on my neck from a previous surgery (i.e., performed by a different surgeon). I have lived in southern California and met with numerous cosmetic surgeons and have looked at their work. None of them even approach Dr. Geroulis's skill level. He is in a class all by himself. Dr. Anthony Geroulis is an exceptionally gifted surgeon who really cares about his patients. After both of my surgeries, he phoned me to make sure I was doing well. He also provided me with his direct cell phone number so I could reach him immediately with any concerns. My lift was performed right before the Christmas Holiday and Dr. Geroulis phoned me to make sure I was okay on Christmas. He truly cares about his patients. Dr. Geroulis is always kind and compassionate. He takes the time to answer all my questions and has never pushed other procedures. I trust his opinion and know he always has my best interest in mind. If you want beautiful and very natural results, then see Dr. Anthony Geroulis.

It is my pleasure to offer these remarks about Dr. Geroulis (lower facelift and upper eyelid surgery). As stated, his goal is to achieve a "natural" refreshed look, not tightened or windblown. The outcome was just as he described. I've been complimented that I look refreshed and youthful, perhaps had lost some weight, but no one suspects the nature of my procedure. I'm nearing my 60th birthday, I've recently been carded! As a physician, I have access to many fine referrals. I'm beyond satisfied with my results- absolutely ecstatic. He's the best!

Dr. Geroulis did my rhinoplasty last summer and I couldn't be happier! I was only 17 when I got it done so I was nervous and didn't know what to expect. My parents and I did a ton of research and found that Dr. Geroulis would be the perfect fit for my surgery! The first time I arrived to his office I felt welcomed and comfortable. The staff was extremely hospitable and caring. That day he told me everything I needed to know before I have the surgery, I felt extremely prepared for what was to come. The day of surgery went so much better than I could have ever anticipated. Once the IV was in I was out like a light and didn't feel a thing. The medicine he gave me really helped the swelling process and I couldn't thank you enough. Patience is key! Its almost been 6 months and my nose is looking great! I get compliments all the time telling me how perfect it looks and the swelling isn't even 100% done! I can't wait to see my final result. So impressed with Dr.Geroulis and his staff!

Dr. Geroulis far exceeded my expectations in revision upper eyelid repair surgery, done by an occuloplastic surgeon years ago. The original surgeon had left me with asymmetry, a lot of scar tissue, extra skin, and fat that should have been removed. It also appeared one eye didn't close all the way while asleep. I had consulted with 2 other cosmetic surgeons and even 2 "top" occuloplastic surgeons, all who had turned me away and said my case was too risky and inoperable. Being a Chicago native, I had heard Dr. Geroulis' name before, but when I saw his work pop up on Realself.com, I felt I should consult with him ASAP. During the consultation, Dr Geroulis will not just tell you what you want to hear. He will be honest about what can be done and is modest in making promises. I respect that! I also had a hunch that I would be very pleasantly surprised, based on his confidence, experience and expertise, along with the before/after a I saw of other patients. Both the downtown office and Northfield surgical center are pristine and beautiful. The staff and surgical team were all very friendly, professional, and caring. Vanessa is great and will help walk you through preparing for your surgery and aftercare in a clear and concise manner. I was kept comfortable, with warm blankets during surgery and recovery has been a breeze so far. I am nearly a week post-op and can already see such a major difference in both the aesthetics and functionality of my eyelids. I already have the highly coveted "bedroom eyes" that I wanted and look years younger! Dr. Geroulis is a kind and compassionate professional with an eye for aesthetic balance and has saved my eyes when even an occuloplastic surgeon (3 of them!) could not. I could not be happier and would recommend him to anyone considering facial cosmetic surgery. Especially when considering your eyes.

There's a reason why you are seeing nothing but the highest ratings for this doctor. We took our daughter to Dr. Geroulis a for nasal septal reconstruction procedure that was both medically and aesthetically necessary, and the results of our daughter's surgery were nothing short of outstandingly successful. From the very first moment we walked into Dr. Geroulis's office in Northfield, IL to meet with him and his staff, I strongly sensed that we were in the best place in the world to be in for something like this. Dr. Geroulis's staff was exceptionally courteous, accommodating and professional, and we looked forward to every visit prior to and after the surgery. Dr. Geroulis has 30+ years clinical, surgical and academic experience in the field and it shows. He's the one from whom others learn. Along with this great doctor's highly professional demeanor, integrity, attention to our daughter's needs and willingness to answer any and all questions or concerns we may have had, my family and I are so happy and fortunate to have chosen Dr. Geroulis. We very, very highly recommend Dr. Geroulis. If you are still undecided at this point, STOP! Please stop here and think no more but to choose Dr. Anthony Geroulis to be your plastic /cosmetic surgeon. I absolutely guarantee you will end up writing the same kind of review I am if you do!
