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.
