“I highly recommend Dr. Mahmood to any patient that is looking for an NYC plastic surgeon that understands aesthetics. She takes her time, listens to your concerns, and gives you knowledgeable feedback. She cares about her patients and creates valued relationships with them. I have been getting Botox for years and have bruised with all Doctors other than Dr. Mahmood. She achieves the “best” look for me.” ~ Facebook Reviews
