Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Imber "Dr. Imber has long taught and written about the concepts of prevention and maintenance. With a dedication to performing the least invasive procedures at an earlier point in time, he has developed and popularized many of the procedures, which provide the framework for the work of the clinic.

Dr. Imber performs the full range of cosmetic surgery procedures. He has popularized the S-Lift, and developed the Limited Incision Facelift Technique, as well as popularizing the techniques of microsuction, and a large experience with fat transfer. His techniques for eyelid surgery incorporate fat transposition, and as with all procedures, strive for the most natural result."

What People Say About Dr. Gerald Imber, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
So happy with my rhinoplasty, the results are so natural but yet have changed my life. Dr. Imber also suggested a fat transfer to my upper lip (instead of continuing to get filler) and the results are amazing. I have the perfect pout! The staff was super nice and accommodating!!!
