This surgery is often performed after pregnancy or weight loss, when the skin has become stretched or saggy. A new belly button may need to be surgically created by an umbilicoplastyLiposuction may also be performed, most often on flanks or “love handles." LEARN MORE ›

Have been on a few consults. Dr. Nuveen has been the best by far. His staff is wonderful. I felt very relaxed and comfortable. His fellow came in first and went over what could and could not be done.
