Dear Dr. Ackerman,

I want to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for the excellent care I have received since having surgery in June. Your reassurance and professionalism are much appreciated. You were even generous enough to come in on your day off when I needed post operative support. The hernia repairs and abdominoplasty have resulted not only in an improved aesthetic but more importantly in a better quality of life as I no longer have the chronic back discomfort I had in the past. Your surgical and office teams demonstrate a positive and caring manner which means a great deal.

I wish you and your team continued success in the future and thank you all for your kindness.

Sincerely, K.M

Dear Dr. Ackerman,

Saying Thank You! The more I search the more a material gift seems inadequate. To express my gratitude in words rings clear, but how? My experience resulting from the five procedures Dr. Ackerman performed for me is unique. My recognition cannot be unlike that experience.A material gift large of small feels effortless. Items from the mall and Internet seem
cheap and mundane.

After many pages of trashed rhetoric it all boils down to this simple truth. When people see me they say, “You look absolutely beautiful”, and for the first time in 63 years I totally agree.

Your gift to me will last me a lifetime. My gift to you is on of admiration and awe.

Lovingly, J.A

Dear Dr. Ackerman,

I wanted to write to thank you for the referral your gave me over a year ago to Dr. Boris Ackerman in Newport Beach. I came to see you for very heavy thighs and legs, wondering if you could do liposuction on that area. I appreciated your honesty when you told me that I would not have a good response to liposuction alone because I had “loose skin” and really needed a leg lift. You told me to only go to someone who did a lot of lower body lift, as it is a difficult surgery. You referred me to Dr. Ackerman and I underwent a “Lower Body Lift” in April 2003. I was in surgery for 5 hours and it is really only after the fact that I realize what a disaster this could have been in the wrong hands. Dr. Ackerman is such a skilled surgeon that the results are beyond my expectations. Dr. Ackerman told me that this is the longest incision in plastic surgery and the first couple of weeks were fairly uncomfortable, but manageable. I was back at the gym in 4 weeks and continue to do great.

Yours truly,

Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner

May God Bless you every day as you continue to care for your patients.

Best Wishes-

Dear Dr. Ackerman,

Thank you for going out of your way to make me feel comfortable. I will never forget your kindness.


Dear Dr. Ackerman,

I feel an overwhelming need to come up with exactly the right words of gratitude, but as in most cases like this, simple words are failing me. I lived with a body that carried me through life, but was a constant reminder of my birth defect and of all the pain I went through as a teenager. I know that I could and did find happiness without perfection, but this surgery has made my options much more ubiquitous. Your kindness in making the surgery possible will never be lost, but instead will be in my memory forever and paid forward to others. I am amazed at the results and enjoy each day that my healing progresses. Your staff was very kind and accommodating-not to mention beautiful! Please thank them as well. I wish you happiness, prosperity, and growth and look forward to my visit when I am next in California.

Thank You

Thank You Note 2

Dear Dr. A,

I can Never thank you enough for being so caring and understanding. Of course I love my new body and because of you I feel so young. I hope you enjoy the Champagne and Strawberries


Thank You Note - 1Dr. A

Seriously, I just wanted to say thank you. I now don’t feel like my face screams “I’m cranky or a grouch.” I feel like I look better for Michael, which is one of the reasons for my decision. He says that it didn’t matter to him. For some strange reason he likes being around me now. That’s good, cause I like being around him. His is a dear and wonderful husband. So again, thank you for turning my face into a smile, you brought the smile from the inside to the outside, what a talent you have.


Thank you 3I can’t say thank you enough, you are an amazing Dr.! You did exactly what I wanted and my breasts look amazing. I am glad I picked you as my P.S.

Thank You
