Post-Baby Tummy Tuck: What You Should Consider

After having a child, many moms become dissatisfied with their “post-baby” body. When they decide to do something about it, such as a tummy tuck at my Albany, NY practice, they’ve already thoroughly researched the procedure online and arrive at their consultations prepared with questions.

When seeking a qualified plastic surgeon for your breast augmentation, facelift, rhinoplasty, or other cosmetic procedure in Albany, NY, some of your best clues can be found in patient testimonials.
