Since my surgery, I have referred several close friends and family. Everyone raves about how pleased they are with your services. I wanted to make sure I thanked you again for changing my look, improving my life and being the ultimate plastic surgeon. You are the best and whenever I need a plastic surgeon it will ALWAYS be YOU.


I could not be happier with the size of my breasts. Dr. Gelman was honest in what would be too large for my body frame. I'm currently 32 years old and feel more confident than I did in my 20s.

It has been 10 years since my gastric bypass surgery. Since then, I've committed to a lifestyle of eating right, cardio and weight training. I NEVER thought my area of sagging would be my breasts...they looked like sagging bean bags and I felt horrible!!! A friend referred me to Dr. Gelman and this was one of the best decisions I ever made. He laughs when I call him a miracle worker, but the proof is in my before and after pics...OMG!!!  Dr. Gelman is extremely knowledgeable and confident at what he does. He and his staff are very personable and professional. Thank you once again Dr. have changed my life!!!
