Dr. Herman's office now offers state-of-the art noninvasive techniques for fat removal and facelifting:  EXELIS and ULTHERA

EXILIS:  for patients desiring to avoid liposuction but desiring to reduce fat deposits along the abdomen, hips, flanks, and thighs, Exilis offers an alternative. Using ultrasonic energy, Exilis dissolves the fat, resulting in improved body contour after only a few treatments, which can be performed in the office without anesthesia.

ULTHERA: though not a replacement for surgery, noninvasive skin tightening can offer facelifting and necklifting without surgery for patients with mild to moderate aging and for patients who do not want to undergo an operation.  The procedure takes 1 to 2 hours and can be done in the office without anesthesia.

Dr. Charles Herman is named Top Doctor in Plastic Surgery by US News and World Report for the third consecutive year (2012-2014).  The selection was based on peer reviews and selection by a physician-led research panel.  He is one a select few to be named to the Top Doctor list.  For more information, click on the link below:
