Dr. Galiano and his team are consummate professionals who delivered an upscale, outstanding experience from first consult through last post-op visit. I am absolutely thrilled with my results and will recommend him to anyone looking for a superior plastic surgeon in Chicago. He and his team are attentive to patient needs and responsive to concerns. I was impressed with their professionalism from the moment I walked through the door and will remain a faithful client for years to come!

When I met Dr Galiano, he made me feel comfortable, described my treatment plan in detail, asked what questions I had. The surgery was exactly what he said, was carried out, precise and consistent with everything he indicated would occur. The outcome was excellent. His surgical nurse, Sarah, was outstanding, extremely knowledgeable and managed the entire process with great competence. She performed her duties at a very high level.

My leg was crushed in an accident. Dr. Galiano did the skin grafting that saved it. His work was totally successful. He was always tremendously competent, compassionate and extraordinarily kind. A great surgeon and physician throughout a long and traumatic ordeal - I am fortunate he was assigned to care for me!

I am 6 weeks post op from full body makeover and couldn't be happier. Dr Galiano explained how I could best achieve the improvements I desired and expertly gave me results that are beyond my dreams. He truly has a perfect eye for creating natural, balanced features. In addition, his entire staff has been incredibly friendly, kind, helpful and professional in every phone call and visit. They are all truly the highest quality medical staff I have ever dealt with and I highly recommend them.

I had a breast reduction surgery with this Dr. Galvani and am very unhappy with the results one year post op. Before surgery I was very clear that I wanted to be much smaller. I am still a size D and much larger than I want to be.

Dr. Galiano did a terrible facelift surgery for me that required revision surgery with another surgeon. This entire ordeal cost me pain, humiliation, and a lot of money. He dismissed my concerns as unfounded. Based on the reviews, Dr. Galiano may be good with breast surgeries. However, if somebody plans a facelift, perhaps he/she should ask him first to look at patients who underwent this procedure with him. Unless he has many successful facelifts under his belt, one should be careful.

I was referred to Dr. Galiano from my orthopedic surgeon, from the first moment i received my first consultation Dr. Galiano explained everything i needed to know and took him time to make sure that not only did i understand the treatment I was going through but listened to my concerns and made sure I wasn't left feeling alone along the way. He is both intelligent and caring. I simply cannot thank him and the his entire staff enough for everything they have done. Thank you.

I'm 10 days post OP for my breast reduction. Although I'm healing I'm so happy with my results. Dr. Galliano is a soft spoken kind doctor who seems equally as happy that soon in would be without back pain. He took great care in my reconstruction and at 46 my breast are now perfect. His staff and assistant Robin handled submitting my information to the insurance company and got the aprroval. Dr. Galliano and his team.....100 stars

I have not had a good experience with Dr. Galiano. I have found his post surgical care to be indifferent and cavalier and my result has not been good.
