Our Physicians

Two of our ENT specialists at ACENT are also board-certified facial plastic surgeons. Anchorage residents come to Dr. Ellerbe or Dr. Kallman for cosmetic concerns ranging from drooping eyebrows to prominent ears to sagging necks. Their specialized training in head and neck surgery complements their aesthetic work, and patients appreciate the predictable, natural-looking results that our surgeons achieve.

To meet with one of our facial plastic surgeons, we encourage you to request a consultation online or call ACENT at (907) 279-8800 to schedule an appointment.
