Dr. Unger is an incredible surgeon. After researching for days I found Dr. Unger's before and after results and was intrigued by the natural looking appearance of his rhinoplasty procedures. His patients all had remarkable transformations but nothing looked overdone or unnatural for their face. —Nick, Rhinoplasty
I had a consultation and surgery for Rhinoplasty with Dr. Unger and knew from the start that he was my surgeon. His office staff were caring and his level of compassion was like nothing I’ve ever seen in a doctor! My surgery went amazing, I could not be happier with my results. Dr. Unger is AMAZING! —Penelope, Rhinoplasty
Words cannot express how thrilled I am with my facelift. You are truly an artist. Your staff was kind, the hospital provided me the best care, and the hotel with its private duty nurse was superb. My result was beyond my hopes. —Elsa, Facelift
My experience with Dr. Unger and his staff is one that needs to be shared, especially to those who are searching for a plastic surgeon. He listened to my concerns and insecurities, reassured me and went into great detail to educate me on the implants, mastopexy, surgery process, and recovery period. —A.B., Breast Augmentation
As a professional woman in my sixties, I was a bit afraid that the results of a facelift might be too unnatural. With Dr. Unger’s caring approach I could not be happier with my results. I’m always happy to share his name with my friends and have renewed confidence in feeling and looking my best! —Anonymous, Facelift

Reviews for Jacob G. Unger, MD

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of breast implants are used?


As the designer of Allergan’s Natrelle™ Collection of breast implants, and especially as a developer of the 410 Matrix of “Form Stable,’ ‘Gummy Bear,” or “Teardrop” implants, Dr. Maxwell has special knowledge and experience with the design and appropriate use of breast implants. Remember, however, that each patient is unique, so Dr. Maxwell will personally help you custom-select the size and shape of silicone gel or saline implant that offers the best results for you.

Where are breast implants placed?


The placement of the implant in relation to the chest muscle is an important aspect of the procedure. Implants can be placed in a subglandular, subfascial, subpectoral, or submuscular implant pockets. The implant pocket affects the appearance of the implant and the tissue coverage around the implant. This is determined based on a number of factors, including the amount of supportive tissue the patient may have in that area of the body.

How does liposuction work?


Three-Stage Lipo involves three distinct steps. First is separating the fat cells from their surrounding tissue and each other, loosening them without damaging blood vessels and other delicate systems in the area. Because the separation stage creates easily removed material, the next step—aspiration, or removal of the fat cells via suction—can be accomplished by thinner cannulas than usual. This results in less trauma, which in turn reduces post-surgical swelling and bruising. Finally, the fat cells remaining in the body are equalized for a thin, uniform look. Since the necessary blood vessels are still intact thanks to the unique separation stage, these cells are nourished and healthy, offering long-lasting, toned results.

What is the Tummy Tuck recovery time?


Surgery takes two to four hours. Surgery is performed under general anesthesia at a fully accredited surgical facility. The incisions are closed in multiple layers with absorbable sutures that dissolve over time. Surgical tape is placed over the outermost incision, and you will be placed in a garment. Generally, recovery for a tummy tuck is two weeks. You will be advised to stay away from work for that time period. If your work involves heavy lifting with no light duty option, you may be required to be off of work longer. You are restricted from heavy lifting (greater than 5 lbs) for six weeks. You will initially be slightly bent at the waist after your tummy tuck surgery. Gradually, each day, you will straighten up until you are completely straight. This process takes about one to two weeks.

Will my breathing be improved after a Rhinoplasty procedure?


As part of your complete consultation and evaluation, any breathing problems or history of nasal airway obstruction will be duly noted and examined. In the majority of cases where there is a component of nasal airway obstruction, even if your goals are mainly focused on cosmetic changes, your breathing will be much improved afterwards. This is because by reshaping and strengthening the nasal framework to create a harmonious and beautiful result, Dr. Unger and Dr. Amaka will also recreate the appropriate architecture of your internal nasal airway.
