You’ve heard about the “mommy makeover” – Now learn about treatment customized to you in NYC

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Edmund Kwan is experienced with mommy makeover treatment in NYC that gets the unique results you desire, and to unleash post-baby curves and confidence

Just as no two makeovers on TV or featured online are the same, mommy makeover treatment in NYC at the office of Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Edmund Kwan is customized to your specific needs. The “mommy” part of the “makeover treatment” comes from the general desire patients have to treat many common post-childbirth complaints. You don’t have to “learn to live” with a body that you’re uncomfortable with, that isn’t you, and that doesn’t seem to respond to the “go-to” means of fat reduction: healthy diet and exercise. The complaints mothers want to treat are often not responsive to traditional weight loss tactics.

Concerns include:

  • Extra or lax skin in the lower abdomen
  • Stretch marks
  • Deflated or saggy breasts

No matter how much you exercise or how well you eat, weight loss alone won’t address laxity. You can lose the pounds and still have loose skin that doesn’t conform to your body. Even if fat is the issue, not all fatty pockets are created equal. Some fat, such as that around the hips or love handles, is notoriously stubborn and doesn’t respond well to exercise or nutritional changes. This is when professional intervention at Edmund Kwan, MD comes into play. Dr. Kwan and his team offer surgical and nonsurgical options that safely make a noticeable difference in your physique while also restoring your confidence. While the mommy makeover is unique to you, there are some procedures that are commonly associated with it because they improve excess around the abdomen or unwanted changes to breast tissue – the lingering issues many women struggle with after childbirth. In fact, laxity can become an even bigger challenge in the face of sizeable weight fluctuations.

These procedures, which are performed safely at Dr. Kwan’s AAAASF certified ambulatory surgical facility in New York City, include:

  • Tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty)
  • Liposuction
  • Breast lift or mastopexy
  • Breast augmentation or enlargement
  • Breast reduction

The above treatments may be combined to restore your full pre-baby glory. For example, if excess abdominal fat and laxity are issues, the tummy tuck may be combined with liposuction. Liposuction involves suctioning out the fat, while abdominoplasty tightens underlying tissues. Liposuction may also be used to reduce other areas, such as the hips, “muffin top,” thighs, and backside. Breast augmentation with implants may be combined with a breast lift. Likewise, hormonal and tissue-oriented changes can cause breasts to remain larger than you’re comfortable with and may require reduction surgery. Some of these surgical treatments have the added benefit of improving the appearance of stretch marks.

Happy woman without stretch marks

To ensure you’re a happy mommy post-makeover, it’s important to consider many factors that can affect the long-term results:

  • Your past (and future) pregnancy plans — While you wanted to see changes yesterday, it’s important to wait at least six months before undergoing mommy-tucks or related types of procedures. Likewise, it’s critical to consider your future goals and if major weight-oriented fluctuations, including those brought on by additional pregnancies, are on the horizon.
  • Specific goals – The more you can explain about your vision for your post-baby body to Dr. Kwan, the better. Doing so allows the surgeon to recommend the most appropriate procedures and techniques to meet your unique preferences and wants.
  • Weight loss – Every surgical procedure carries some amount of risk. By partnering with a Board-certified surgeon with a certified surgical facility, those risks are dramatically reduced. Your health also plays a big role. The healthier you can be before surgery, the more predictable your outcome. It’s always a great idea to reach your health goals, including a goal weight, before moving on with a mommy makeover or other treatments. This approach ensures the best results and minimizes the risk of complications.

As an Asian plastic surgeon, Dr. Kwan is accustomed to helping a diverse array of patients reach their goals. Many of our patients who get procedures that fall under the “mommy makeover” category, also get a wellness boost. They’re motivated to keep those restored curves with lifestyle changes. Time may march on, but you can slow it down.

  •  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.
  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - Reviews T. Cannon
    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! .
