Is there a cosmetic plastic surgeon in Manhattan who performs tummy tucks?
Tummy tucks are a popular cosmetic procedure that gives individuals a flatter, better looking stomach. The procedure works by removing excess skin and fat to firm and smooth the abdomen. Tummy tucks are an excellent solution for loose and sagging skin, excess skin, and weakened abdominal muscles. Tummy tucks are not designed to be a weight loss tool. At the office of Dr. Edmund Kwan, patients in Manhattan can fall in love with their midsection thanks to the tummy tuck procedure.
Candidates for tummy tucks
Curious if you are a viable candidate for tummy tucks? See if you meet these criteria:

- You are done being pregnant
The Initial Consultation
If you are considering a tummy tuck, the first step is a consultation. During this visit, we do a full examination, assess your physical health, and discuss realistic expectations and goals. We will walk you through the steps of the procedures including the incisions and the risks involved. Finally, we will show you before and after pictures of tummy tucks that we have completed. After this appointment we can determine if you are a candidate for a tummy tuck.
All tummy tucks are performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure, an incision will be made above the pubic area from hip to hip. The doctor will then separate the skin from the abdominal wall to remove fat and repair muscles. If there is excess skin on the upper abdomen, a second incision will be made around the belly button.
Patients will immediately notice a firmer, flatter stomach. After about two weeks, the drains will be removed and swelling will continue to go down.
