Dr. Bartsich is a top-notch cosmetic surgeon in Manhattan. I have worked with her personally and seen she has excellent hands and takes meticulous care with each step of the operation. She also has really great bedside manners. Highly recommend!!
Dr Wang is excellent surgeon. He cares very much for his parie ts and does the best job possible. I would highly recommended Dr Wang for any type of surgical procedures.
My experience with Dr. Bruno and his team has been nothing but good! Prior to choosing Dr.Bruno for my breast augmentation, I had a consultation with another doctor. She stated that my type of BA would require a complex procedure that would increase the price of my BA significantly. After doing my research and posting on RealSelf, I felt that I needed a second opinion because what she said I had was not confirmed by other doctors. It left me feeling she was being dishonest about what I needed just to hike up the cost of the surgery. Dr. Bruno had been referred to me by a friend that also had a BA so I decided to book a consultation with him and I am sooooo glad I did. I've had such a pleasant experience with his team since the first time I reached out to them. Joselle has always been really sweet and accommodating. I explained to her that I would like to see Dr. Bruno as soon as possible because I had only a few days to decide whether I would go with the other surgeon (the other surgeon's quote was only good for a few days because of a promotion they had). She gave me an appointment slot that worked for me, later she ended up calling me the next day to let me know that there was an appointment that was a couple days earlier than my original appointment. I really appreciated it that as I had very limited time to make up my mind. The day of my consultation came and after meeting with Dr. Bruno, it was clear to me that I would be going with him for my BA. He explained the procedure in great detail and answered of all my questions honestly. It was completely different experience than my consultation with the other surgeon who was pushy and seemed annoyed that I had tons of questions. He and his team made me feel very comfortable and I never felt pressured by them, as I did with the other surgeon I consulted. Both Marisol and Joselle were just as helpful with answering all my questions as Dr. Bruno. Throughout the entire BA journey, his staff would call me to remind me of appointments as well as check up on me once I had the procedure. They genuinely care about their patients. As far as the results go, I am only three weeks out from surgery but I already love what I am seeing and can't wait for my final result as I really admire Dr. Bruno's work from the before and after pictures I have seen of other patients. I highly recommend Dr. Bruno and his team! If I ever decide to have other procedures, I will definitely be returning to him.THANK YOU!
I was referred to Dr. Jejurikar by Dr. Gardner and I’m SO HAPPY that I finally went to see him. He’s the best (FIRST) experience I had with plastic surgery and I’d recommend him to anyone who’s contemplating having a procedure done. He and his entire office staff are friendly, patient and so very helpful.
I only went to Dr. Zarrabi for my consultation and haven't yet had my surgery but I had one of the best experiences I've ever had with a doctor. He was patient, kind, thorough. He answered every question I had and never rushed me once. He went through insurance possibilities with me and explained all of my options at length. I hope I can schedule my surgery with him soon.
I don't know where to start or how to say thank you to Dr. Schwartz and his amazing staff for all their support and care on my past visit. For as long as I can remember, I've had one big insecurity that I decided I would just learn to deal with because of my fear to go under the knife. I'd figured I would just avoid photos or just wear a filter in them...however, I met with Dr. Schwartz and he assured me he could fix my issue without surgery. I had a thorough consultation with him and next thing you know I was signed up for my appointment to have injectables for the first time in my 33 years. I always said when I felt ready to have my "pick me up" I was going to knock on a doctors door whose work and credentials were in line. Dr. Schwartz not only took care of all my issues but he delivered me my dream nose...I honestly can not stop looking at myself in the mirror. It's honestly so perfectly done and I just can't put into words what a confidence boost this has done for me...especially in my line of work. I thank you Dr. Schwartz...for your skill and sweet nature during my time spent with you. To your amazing staff...thank you for all your kind words...it really meant a lot to me! I found a place where I will be going to have all my beauty needs met from here on out:) I want to encourage anyone curious about anything that has been burdensome to you...to have a consult with Dr. Schwartz...I'm so glad I did.
I traveled from Colorado to see Dr. Hubbard for a breast augmentation and all I can say is WOW!!!! Not only is he an exceptionally skilled surgeon, he has the best bedside manner of any doctor around. He and his staff (Ms. Rheanna and the rest of the ladies :)) immediately made me feel at ease, from the initial consult to the aftercare process which I am still in. I woke up the next day with minimal pain and have absolutely zero discomfort as we speak...and it's only four days later!! Dr. Hubbard and his staff are the consummate professionals and will immediately make you feel like family...how many other doctors and their staff can you say that about? I know for 100% certainty I will only be seeing Dr. Hubbard for all medical procedures, regardless of where I live!!
Had my daughters nose performed here, as a mother I was against it obviously... however I chose them because of there experience and thank goodness everything turned out fine.
Dr Mustoe has an unbelievable bedside manner. My son had an extreme deviated septum and unable to breathe out of his left nostril and additionally the nose was not straight. Our end goal was for him to breathe! Dr. Mustoe said he would get it as straight as he could and may not be perfect. After one month my son is able to breathe and his nose, while not perfectly straight, still looks like him and doesn't look like a 'done' nose. I would highly recommend Dr. Mustoe and his team.
Dr Mussat is a wonderful surgeon. I consulted with her in her downtown office. Upon entering her office her receptionist was welcoming and courteous. During my consultation Dr Mussat sat with me and gave me a presentation with information about my procedure. I felt that she was very thorough with her explanation. I was able to see actual footage of how she performs the procedure. This was impressive and she really took her time with me. I was also pleasantly surprised to find out that I fit the criteria for having this procedure as a medical necessity which turned out to be a covered benefit under my BCBS plan. I have since had my surgery and I’m so happy with the outcome. The only regret I have is that I didn’t have this sooner. I’m so grateful to Dr Mussat and this has been truly a blessing for me.

Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a surgical procedure to create a toned, firm, and flat abdomen by removing excess skin and fat. It has both cosmetic and medical benefits as it can tighten the abdominal muscles, restore the contour of the belly, improve posture, correct hernia, and reduce stress urinary incontinence.
A tummy tuck is suitable for people who want to remove excess skin due to a significant weight loss, aging, or pregnancy. However, not everyone can undergo a tummy tuck. Your surgeon may not allow you to undergo the procedure if you plan to lose a significant amount of weight, you might want to get pregnant in the future, have a body mass index (BMI) that is greater than 30, smokes, have a severe chronic condition, and had an abdominal surgery that caused scar tissue in the past.
A tummy tuck procedure will get rid of some of your excess skin and fat and will tighten the muscles in your abdominal wall.
What you need to understand is that a tummy tuck procedure is not an alternative for weight loss or an appropriate exercise program. While its results are significantly permanent, maintaining a positive outcome will require you to have a healthier lifestyle.
Furthermore, this type of treatment procedure is not the same as liposuction. A tummy tuck is a major surgery and not all individuals who wish to undergo it are good candidates. Generally speaking, this specific type of treatment procedure is for both men and women who are in good health. This is also suitable for women who have had more than one pregnancy, as well as both men and women who were formerly obese and still have excess fat and loose skin around their belly area.
You will be advised to postpone your plans for a tummy tuck procedure if you are:
In preparation for a tummy tuck procedure, you will need to have a consultation with your surgeon. During your consultation, you will be asked about your expected result, goals. Furthermore, your surgeon will also discuss the following options:
Before your actual surgery, you may be asked to do the following:
A tummy tuck procedure typically lasts for about one to five hours, depending on your case. You will also be given general anesthesia while you undergo the surgery, meaning, you will be asleep during the whole procedure.
Depending on the extent of your tummy tuck, you may need to stay in the hospital overnight or leave the hospital on the same day. However, since you have to attend follow-up checkups and allow your body to heal, you have to stay in United States for at least 7 days following your discharge from the hospital. Your surgeon will check your overall health and remove the stitches during the follow-up checkups.
The recovery period after a tummy tuck depends on various factors, such as your general health, body weight, and age. In general, you may be able to go back to work (if your job does not require a lot of physical activities) and perform light exercises (such as walking) within 2 to 3 weeks after the surgery. You may need to wait for about 6 to 8 weeks until you can go back to your full normal routine, including performing vigorous activities. Still, your body will continue to heal for a few more months, so it’s better to take it easy until your surgeon allows you to return to your full activity.
Your surgeon will give you detailed aftercare instructions. To avoid any complications, it is important that you follow them closely. The instructions may include restrictions (such as staying away from alcohol and nicotine), light exercises, and a healthy diet. Your surgeon will also tell you how to find an optimal resting position to make you comfortable during recovery. It is important to keep moving and doing some light exercise after the surgery to keep your blood flowing and reduce the risk of a blood clot.
To maintain the results of your tummy tuck, you need to maintain a well-balanced diet and exercise regularly, at least about 30 to 60 minutes every day. You should also limit your alcohol intake. Staying fit and in shape is the main key to keeping the results for a long time.
Most patients who have had a tummy tuck reported achieving positive results. Only about 3.1% of people developed complications following the surgery. However, while the success rate is high, you need to be aware that the procedure does have some risks of complications, including seroma (fluid accumulation beneath the skin), unexpected scarring, poor wound healing, unexpected scarring, tissue damage or death, bleeding, infection, an allergic reaction to anesthesia, and changes in skin sensation. This is why following your surgeon’s aftercare instruction is very important, as it helps reduce the risk of complications.
While there are non-surgical options that can be considered as an alternative to this type of treatment procedure, note that these alternatives will not give you the same results as a tummy tuck. These non-surgical alternatives only give off limited amounts of skin tightening and a small amount of non-surgical fat reduction.
CoolSculpting - in this procedure, your fat cells will be frozen and eventually be eliminated by your body. You will usually see results after a few weeks and its final effects will be shown typically within three months.
SculpSure - unlike CoolSculpting, SculpSure makes use of laser beam light to kill your fat cells. During the procedure, the laser will be used to heat the fat cells to a point of irreversible damage. Once your fat cells are damaged, they will eventually be swept away by your body’s lymphatic system. Just like CoolSculpting, it will also take about three months to see full results.
