Dedication and Passion to Change Lives

A lot of people shy away from plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures because of all the horror stories out there. But Dr. G provides safe and reliable treatment that not only enhances your looks but also gives you complete peace of mind!

Hear it from her one of his patients – she came to Dr. G for a tummy tuck procedure and left all smiles!
 “Dr Grzeskiewicz is the best surgeon out there. He truly cares about his patients and is so thorough when doing        the initial consult and all meetings thereafter. Never met a better doctor ever and I would recommend Dr G to everyone. I am highly impressed by Dr. G’s work ethic and care. He is doing this type of work for all the right reasons.” –

Expertise in Surgical and Non Surgical Procedures

Dr. G’s main interests lie in breast and body contouring, and he has a vast experience in performing successful breast augmentation, tummy tuck, body contouring, and liposuction procedures. However, in addition to surgical facial treatments, like eyelid tuck (blepharoplasy), facelift, and rhinoplasty, he also dedicates a large portion of his practice to delivering natural-looking results using nonsurgical injectable treatments. He was recently featured in the New Beauty magazine as an Expert Injector for the year 2013-2017 because of his customized and safe injectable treatments.

There seems to be no end to raving reviews and glowing recommendations for Dr. G – here’s what a patient said after her breast augmentation surgery:

“My experience was extremely satisfying. The general staff was very professional and informative as well as kind and comforting. Dr. G took time with me as a patient, and allowed me to make my own decisions while adding his professional recommendations which turned out to be at my upmost benefit. I was treated with respect from start to finish. I loved my experience and enjoy the results. I would recommend it to anyone interested!”
