About Gerald A. Acker
Welcome to my practice. I am now one of the longest practicing and most experienced plastic surgeons in the United States. To date I have done more than 18,000 procedures.What is remarkable to me is how radically my practice has changed over the years. I want to do more than reproduce my colleagues’ excellent results over time. I have unreservedly rethought and changed traditional procedures to make them more predictable, permanent and safer, as well as with little scarring. Almost all operations are pain free with patients capable of going to a gym within one to two weeks. No patient is tightly pulled, wind-blown or requires contour chairs to sleep. I hate scars so my wounds are tiny and approximate with no tension. All my patient’s eyes are closed on the operating table and closed when asleep.Much of what i have developed I have learned from the leading plastic surgeons in the world by personal visits. I have travelled to 70 countries where cosmetic surgery is an art form and where surgery can be advanced without fear of litigation. This cannot be replicated in a domestic course. I owe a great debt of gratitude to my teachers and mentors around the world who have given freely of their time and talent.
