Facelift surgery can help turn back the clock, giving you a more youthful and vibrant appearance. Dr. Ackerman has perfected his facelift technique to provide patients with significant, dramatic improvements without the telltale signs of a facelift. Patients who opt for facelift surgery can expect a more youthful appearance, often eliminating up to 10 years of facial aging. Dr. Ackerman will provide patients with an individualized plan to meet their aesthetic goals.

read more › Facial signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and saggy skin, can make a man look older than he is or feels, which often negatively affects his self-esteem. Fortunately, facelift surgery is not just for women. Dr. Ackerman has devised a process that provides his male patients with many options in facial rejuvenation surgery. Some patients choose just eyelid surgery or a neck lift, while some choose a complete transformation that can make them look much younger and more handsome. When done properly, these surgical procedures create very natural facial features.

read more › As the science of plastic surgery evolves, time-proven procedures like the Facelift (rhytidectomy) get even better as refinements make results more natural and longer lasting. One such innovation is the Deep Plane Facelift. As opposed to the SMAS facelift, the Deep Plane Facelift is a more powerful technique that addresses "mid-face" aging, providing more longevity to the correction of the jowls. Additionally, the entire facial rejuvenation is more harmonious. During a traditional facelift, the skin is separated from the underlying tissues and pulled tight.

For some people, excess sagging skin is noticeable on the face and upper neck as well. This can have many repercussions physically, mentally, and socially. Facelift surgery, also known as rhytidectomy, addresses drooping tissues and loose skin in the middle and lower face. Candidates for facial plastic surgery after significant weight loss are generally affected by the symptoms noted above.

read more › Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can eliminate sagging eyelids and puffiness for a dramatically rejuvenated appearance. Many men and women struggling with significant aging of the eyes may often look tired or angry. This is because the skin and muscles surrounding the eyes become lax, and fat becomes displaced. Eyelid surgery can eliminate dark circles and puffiness around the eyes to create a more rested and relaxed facial appearance. The tissues of the upper eyelids can begin to droop and interfere with a person's eyesight.

read more › The consultation is an important moment for developing your fat transfer treatment plan. Every patient has unique aging needs that should be evaluated before a plan is developed. Dr. Ackerman is able to achieve natural-looking results by having thorough knowledge of physical anatomy as well as having a detailed understanding of your wants and desires. The Brazilian Butt Lift uses the fat transfer process to enhance the size and improve the definition of your butt to create a more prominent appearance.

read more › Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that can improve the structure of your nose to provide a more balanced facial appearance and markedly beautify the entire face. Dr. Ackerman is one of only a few rhinoplasty surgeons who are experts in Endonasal (no external incision) Nasal Surgery. This technique prevents an external scar, and in Dr. Ackerman's opinion, creates a more refined nasal appearance. Rhinoplasty resculpts the noses of patients who are struggling with an overly large nose, wide nostrils, or visible nasal bumps in order to create a more harmonious facial appearance.

read more › Your initial consultation with Dr. Ackerman will be to determine your degree of ptosis (sagging) and which techniques are best suited to meet your aesthetic goals. After evaluating your needs, Dr. Ackerman will develop a custom treatment plan based on your desires and physical characteristics. Several factors, including physical stature, skin condition, and breast size, are used to determine which incision technique will be used and if there will be any additional combination procedures. Dr. Ackerman believes that the best breast lifts highlight the patient's existing build and look natural.

read more › Dr. Ackerman works closely with his patients to develop a breast reduction plan that meets their physical, aesthetic, and emotional needs. Ideal breast size varies among patients and is determined by your body frame and appearance goals. Dr. Ackerman takes detailed measurements to recommend the best technique for you. During a breast reduction procedure, excess tissue is removed and the breasts are repositioned. The goal of these corrections is to create a more proportional and attractively positioned bustline.

read more › Body lift is a surgical procedure in which the entire outer thigh and buttock complex are lifted as one unit. This is a more modern and advanced technique where the incisions are hidden within the bikini lines, as opposed to the more visible area around the buttock crease. Body lift can be performed as an isolated procedure, but is more commonly performed with either abdominoplasty or an inner thigh lift. Dr. Ackerman strives to provide his weight loss patients with natural-looking body contouring results that highlight their new physique.

read more › Tummy tuck options are available in varying degrees, depending on the type of correction you need. Since your recovery period and extent of scarring can be affected by the technique chosen, your consultation is a critical step in the tummy tuck process. Dr. Ackerman will review your medical history to ensure that you are healthy enough for surgery. He will evaluate your physical needs, including the types of laxity with which you present. Together, you will discuss your aesthetic goals to effectively determine the best technique for your procedure.

read more › For many women, full, shapely buttocks are a symbol of femininity and sensuality. When the gluteal area lacks fullness, it can appear undefined. Butt augmentation with implants or fat transfer can help you achieve a fuller backside. For many women, this helps them fill out pants better and opens a wider range of clothing for them to wear. For many women, achieving sensual curves helps them feel more attractive. Feeling comfortable and happy with your body often boosts your confidence. Having better self-esteem can help you be more assertive and hands-on in your life.

read more › Liposuction should not be performed as a standalone procedure on those who have skin laxity from aging, pregnancy, or weight loss. During your consultation, Dr. Ackerman ensures you are healthy enough for surgery. You can review our before and after photo gallery to develop a clearer understanding of your aesthetic goals. Dr. Ackerman performs liposuction on an outpatient basis. Usually the surgery is performed under twilight anesthesia. The time it takes to complete this procedure depends on the number of areas being treated and the amount of correction needed.

read more › As we age, our faces begin to show the effects of gravity, sun exposure and years of facial muscle movement, such as smiling, chewing and squinting. The underlying tissues that keep our skin looking youthful and full begin to break down, often leaving smile lines, crow's feet or facial creases over the areas where this muscle movement occurs. The following procedures may be used alone or in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as a face lift or eyelid surgery. BOTOX Cosmetic is a non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases and crows feet near the eyes.
