NYC area doctor offers abdominoplasty tummy tuck surgery

It is common for Dr. Edmund Kwan to see women in his practice who have been through pregnancy and childbirth and want to improve their bodies. Pregnancy can cause many unwanted changes to the body, more specifically the midsection. The abdominal area can change in contours, may have excess skin, stretch marks, or even the separation of abdominal muscles can occur. While many women will attempt to restore their “pre-pregnancy look” after childbirth with diet and exercise, some of these issues cannot be reversed with these lifestyle changes alone. This is the point when women begin to consider surgical procedures to and see their pre-pregnancy body once again.

Dr. Edmund Kwan may recommend a procedure called a tummy tuck for these women. A tummy tuck is also known as an abdominoplasty. This surgery is performed to remove any excess skin in the area as well as stretch marks that may occur across the stomach. Our surgeon will make an incision from hip to hip along the lower abdomen in the area that is commonly concealed with panties or a bikini bottom. It is far beneath the belly button, ensuring that it can be easily covered for confidence. The doctor removes the excess skin, repositions the belly button, and then sutures the skin together for healing. All of this is done to look completely aesthetic and ensure patients are happy with the results they have achieved through this procedure.

It is important that women understand that a tummy tuck is not a weight loss procedure and it does not replace a healthy lifestyle. Instead, it is used to compliment an active lifestyle and improve the contours that may result from extensive weight loss. While abdominoplasty procedures are commonly performed on women, men who have gone through a period of extreme weight loss may also be dealing with similar issues and can enjoy treatment at the practice of Dr. Edmund Kwan for the removal of excess skin in the abdominal area.

At the practice of Dr. Edmund Kwan in NYC, we can help men and women feel better about themselves and improve their body contours for confidence. Contact him today to book a consultation appointment.

  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - reviews by Tina R
    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 involved 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 professionalism 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 Anesthesiologist 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 and I guarantee you will love your results no matter what procedure he is doing for you! .
