Mommy MakeoverBeing a mom does not have to take a toll on your appearance. Skilled cosmetic surgeons have designed new and improved ways for women to regain their youthful figures even after the birth of children. Mommy Makeovers have become the ideal way for women to handle the effects of pregnancy with proven results, and safe technique. If you have yet to hear the details of the Mommy Makeover treatment, we invite you to schedule your one on one consultation with Board Certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Edmund Kwan in one of our modern medical offices.
Every woman is different, and will visit our office with her own unique set of concerns and needs. Dr. Kwan plans each Mommy Makeover around the patient. Tailoring treatment to your needs, your surgeon is able to produce the most satisfactory results that are uniquely you. Dr. Kwan prides himself on taking time with each patient to hear her concerns and answer any questions regarding problem areas or the recommended procedures themselves. This process is about the transformation of your body! We want you to feel fully confident about every aspect of care.
There are several procedures that may be included in a customized Mommy Makeover, performed in our New York City facility. Remember, treatment includes those procedures that will best meet your needs for better body contours.
Tummy tuck – with or without liposuction
The tummy tuck procedure is designed for the removal of excess skin. More than just a skin-removing procedure, however, the tummy tuck will also tighten abdominal muscles that have become loose throughout pregnancy. In most cases, tummy tuck can successfully remove or at least reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Your surgeon will discuss details of this procedure during your consultation.
Even on its own, a tummy tuck can dramatically transform the body. The addition of liposuction may be recommended when the abdomen holds excess fatty deposits beneath the skin. Often, the excess fat in the lower abdomen is difficult to get rid of with diet and exercise alone. Liposuction is a safe and effective procedure performed in our state of the art surgical facility, providing you with the slender shape you desire.
Liposuction for other areas of concern
The effects of pregnancy are not limited to the abdomen. Some women are able to achieve astonishing results with a Mommy Makeover that includes liposuction of the hips, love handles, thighs, buttocks, or other area where excess fat beneath the skin has become problematic.
Breast augmentation, reduction, or breast lift
Pregnancy and breastfeeding often cause the breasts to enlarge. The changes in tissue and hormones can cause the breasts to remain larger than is comfortable, or to become saggy. In a Mommy Makeover, the breasts can be lifted, resized, or reshaped to the most ideal proportions for your unique physical makeup.
Being a mom doesn't mean that you lose your best figure. With a Mommy Makeover, you can feel your best as you raise healthy, happy children. Contact us in Manhattan, New Jersey, or Flushing for more information on the Mommy Makeover procedure.

Edmund Kwan, M.D.
Dr. Kwan is by far the most talented surgeon I have EVER crossed paths with. I came to Dr. Kwan after an under eye fat transplant, performed 'by another' plastic surgeon, which deformed my face. It was only until I was under Dr.Kwan's care that the deformity was corrected. Dr. Kwan literally gave me back my beauty. This was a priceless feeling. That was about 4 years ago, I can assure you ever since- Dr. Kwan is the ONLY plastic surgeon I trust my face and body to. I look forward to my body contouring procedure coming up in a few weeks!! :)

The staff treated me very kindly, with respect and genuine smiles. Dr Kwan is a real professional in my opinion. He took the time to listen to my story, addressed my concerns and took his time to walk me through the process and give me his opinion and explanation on his recommendation. I had my surgery in his practice and we went over everything again before I met up with the anesthesiologist, who was equally as nice and professional as everyone else at his practice. We started counting bikes ... and after bike #6 I fell a sleep. When I woke up, he was there to tell me I did great and before I knew it I was in a taxi cab back home with my best friend who came to pick me up. So I don't know if this is typical, but I had no pain whatsoever after the surgery. . I am very very happy with the results. Dr Kwan did an amazing job and I couldn't be more pleased.
I was invovled in an automobile accident last May, 2013. The outcome from the emergency room left me with 5 stitches on the bridge of my nose, and the tip of my nose was missing due to the severe impact of the accident. I called and scheduled an appointment to visit Dr. Kwan so he could assess my nose. Upon arriving to the office, I was immediately impressed with the facility, service, and profesionalism of his staff. Dr. Kwan met with me and examined my nose and in detail, he explained the approach he would take in order to get my nose like brand new again.On the day of my surgery, I was met by Dr Kwan, who performed the surgery, himself. His Anestigeologist was very informative and professional as well. The outcome of Phase 1 was a success. In addition to that, the staff even called my medication into the pharmacy that way it would be ready as soon as I left the office. My nose is 98% back to normal, I now look forward to Phase 2 to be completed. After that procedure is done I am positive my nose will look absolutely perfect and I will be back to my confident self again. Thanks Dr Kwan and Staff.
I have had several surgeries with Dr Kwan, and would recommend him highly. Liposuction of abdomen and love handles came out smooth. Upper eyelids look younger and refreshed, and the Basal Cell Cancer he cut out of my nose is not even visible, despite the fact that it was right along the rim of my left nostril.
I have been using Dr Kwan for over 10 years now. I have had many different procedures and all of them have turned out great. One of the breast augmentations had a crimp in the left breast and he had no problem going in to revise it to assure my satisfaction. I have always liked the way he answers each of my concerns and we go over everything for each procedure I've done several times to assure we are on the same page :) Take a list of any questions or concerns an I guarantee you will love your results no matter what procedure he is doing for you! .
