    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!!!

    Dr Imber has hands of gold.... everything he touches, he makes beautiful. He and staff are discreet, compassionate, professional and anticipate all of your needs. I would highly recommend him for all your needs, from a little filler to a complete face lift. He will not disappoint!!
