Post baby makeover

Minimally invasive (surgical) to non-invasive (non-surgical) options

Congratulations on having a baby. It is truly a blessing, and one of the best things that can happen in your life. As you have undoubtedly discovered, having babies takes a toll on your body, particularly your face, abdomen, breasts, and skin in general. Helping women regain their pre-pregnancy bodies is an area of particular interest for me. Most of my Manhattan patients are women in their late 30s and early 40s, and much of what I fix is what babies (as well as time, gravity, and life) have caused. I feel strongly our bodies change more than those of our mothers did. Particularly here in Manhattan area most women have babies at a later stage in their lives, there is more weight gain and rather pronounced skin textural changes.
Post-pregnancy procedures should not be done until you have allowed time for your body to fully recover after delivery. It is amazing to see what time, exercise, and those healthy lifestyles can do to improve things. But there are typical changes I see among new moms, many of which cannot be fixed with exercise, creams, good food or sheer will. Our goal is to help you evaluate your choices and determine what might be the most appropriate treatment option for you.

Cosmetic surgery after pregnancy is not needed by every woman. But for many, it allows us a way to reclaim our youthful glowing skin and well-contoured body after having babies. The benefits to self-esteem and sexuality can be great.

Although there are many areas of body affected by child birth that are amenable to correction by invasive surgeries, Dr Khan only specializes in Liposuction, Cellulite treatment, Neck lift, ankle contouring, arm liposuction, treatment of brown spots, wrinkles and skin aging skin tightening and full body sculpting.
Determining the best course for you requires a careful evaluation of your goals and the realities of what can be done, which Dr Khan will go over in great detail during your consult in her Mnahattan office. All procedures are safely performe in a certified OR facility. All procedures are specifically performed by Dr Khan only, under local anesthesia which means you can be awake during the procedure if u wish to or u can take a nap if u like. Procedures for skin rejuvenation are performed using topical anesthetic cream. As these are elective procedures, the procedures should only be done once you have some time available to recover. With some larger surgeries more than one procedure will be required to achieve the desired results.

To explore your options for a minimally invasive or non-invasive post-baby makeover call Dr Khan’s office to schedule a consultation visit.
