How To Fix Diastasis Recti – Tighten Your Tummy After Pregnancy

What Is Diastasis Recti? Diastasis recti is a condition that arises when the rectus abdominis muscles separate. These muscles are visible in very fit people as the “6 pack”.To visualize diastasis recti, imagine the vertical space between the muscles widening. Up to two-thirds of pregnant women experience diastasis recti. In the majority of cases, the condition treats itself in the weeks and months following childbirth. But for some, the condition doesn’t go away on its own. Women with the condition often report looking pregnant even if they aren’t. Others describe a bulge or ridge protruding from the center of the … Continue reading  

Scar Removal: Advice From a New York City Plastic Surgeon

Scar Revision As a plastic surgeon working in New York City I see all manner of injuries and surgical scars in every type and color of skin on this earth. Most times scars heal well or at least don’t bother patients. Occasionally however, the mark left behind is either in a particularly bad place (like the face) or heals with an unacceptably bad scar. These scars may not only be ugly to the observer, but can sometimes affect the functionality of the patient by causing constriction in movement (especially across joints). This is where the art of plastic surgery might … Continue reading  

The Selfie Chin Solution: How Neck Liposuction Can Improve Your Profile

  Liposuction Is Highly Effective I speak quite a bit about how dramatically Smartlipo™ neck liposuction improves my New York patients’ profiles. While I usually call this neck liposuction, I find that many of my patients refer to it as chin liposuction. I think that’s because many of them have a “selfie chin”–and they all seem to hate it! In the end, it really doesn’t matter what we call it. The point is that nowadays, we can improve the profile for men and women using a relatively simple technique that both contours the jawline and tightens the skin at the … Continue reading  

Liposuction Today = Bikini In May!

If you want to turn heads next spring, then winter is the best time for liposuction in NYC. Why? Liposuction can get rid of stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise—but the results aren’t visible overnight. By its nature, liposuction results in a fair amount of swelling. Patients are often about the same size the day after a procedure as they were before the liposuction was performed, but they are a little sore and bruised. I find patients aren’t truly appreciating their results until about six weeks later, and the final result is a good three … Continue reading  

Tummy Tuck Examples From a New York City Plastic Surgeon: Photos, Videos, and Discussion

Abdominoplasty, often called a tummy tuck, removes loose or stretched out skin from the lower belly while also tightening the abdominal muscles. The result is an overall nicer appearance with well-toned skin on the torso. Those considering a tummy tuck at my New York practice often find that it’s the best long-term option for looking and feeling more trim and fit. For many people, though, the thought of surgery can be daunting, and there’s a good amount of confusing information about the procedure on the internet. In this blog post, I’ll show actual before and after pictures and explain some … Continue reading
