The experience you dread

During my recovery, I bled profusely. A neglected bleeder required additional surgery. The second prodcedure mutilated my results. Raised scars, lumps and an asymmetric outcome were horrifying. A third attempt to correct this, with little change. Every time I entered the operating room, there was a bill for the hospital and anesthesia. A dreadful ordeal.

Best Nose Job

Dr Acker came through on his word. Fixed my nose second time around at no charge. No such thing as perfect but close enough.

Wonderfully talented doctor.

Dr. Acker was my doctor and my friend. He did my sister's reconstruction and when he could not do mine because my stomach was too thin, he went with me to Atlanta to a doctor that he found for me and he observed the surgery. He has done other procedures on me and always done a great job. He is very kind and very talented. I have always love him because he has always been so caring.

Dr. Acker's background in art makes his approach quite unique and his methodology left me with NO pain, NO bandages, and minimal discomfort and bruising. This was a very positive experience for me.
