Abdominoplasty, commonly referred to as a “Tummy Tuck,” is a procedure used to remove the excess abdominal fat and skin, as well as tighten the rectus (“six-pack”) muscles that become separated particularly in women who have had children. This procedure helps to create a smooth and firm abdominal appearance that may have been altered with weight fluctuation, pregnancy, or from the normal aging process. It is often combined with liposuction of the waist to further create a slimming and beautiful contour. Dr. Mahmood meticulously creates a very low and well hidden thin scar, as well as a very natural appearing umbilicus, which can be an obvious sign to others that a patient has had an abdominoplasty if not properly created properly by a skilled surgeon.
Liposuction is used to remove stubborn excess fat in a variety of areas in the body – under the chin, upper arms, abdomen, back (ie: the “bra roll area”), waist, inner or outer more contoured area. The incisions are extremely small and placed in well hidden creases and areas of the body. Downtime is minimal and the procedure is more predictable and consistent than noninvasive treatments.
Significant weight loss, either solely via diet and exercise or by bariatric procedures, commonly results in loose skin and fat. Body contouring procedures often include breast lift, abdominoplasty, arm lift, thigh lift, and lower body lift. After examining you, Dr. Mahmood will work with you to create the best treatment plan to help you achieve your goals.
Bothersome sagging excess skin and fat of the upper arm cannot be corrected with exercise and requires surgical treatment. A brachioplasty removes this hanging skin and fat to create a slimmer and more defined arm contour.
Loose skin and excess fat, particularly of the medial thigh area, can be addressed with a medial thigh lift. The thigh is reshaped, and the scar is well hidden along the inside of the leg.
Women with enlarged, protruding, or excess skin of the labia can experience pain when exercising, irritation when wearing jeans or tight clothes, pain during sexual intercourse, and self-consciousness. This procedure reduces the labia minora so that it is restored to its natural position behind the hair-bearing labia majora, and is also performed to restore symmetry between the two labia minora.
Breast implants, silicone or saline, are used to increase breast volume, correct asymmetries, enhance breast shape, and to provide the coveted upper pole fullness (aka décolletage or cleavage). Incisions are well hidden under the breast in the breast fold, and although the implants are generally placed under the muscle, they can be placed under the breast tissue. Dr. Mahmood works closely with patients to tailor implant selection and surgical approach to best achieve their desires and ideal look. For patients with complicated breast asymmetries or deformities from birth, injury, etc., she develops a comprehensive treatment plan to help create beautiful breasts.
Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift raises the breast and nipple by removing excess skin and tightening the breast tissue. The effects of aging, pregnancy, weight loss, and gravity can cause the breast to droop, the nipple to progressively point downward, and the breast to appear deflated. A breast lift reshapes the breast, restores breast contour, and reestablishes a youthful breast appearance. It can be combined with a breast implant (called Augmentation Mastopexy) in patients that want more volume or more upper pole fullness.
Many women suffer from excessively large breasts, that cause neck and back pain, painful shoulder grooves from bra straps, rashes, and cause difficulty finding appropriately fitting clothes and problems when working out. Breast reductions remove excess breast fat, gland, and skin, to create beautiful and youthful appearing breasts. Women who undergo breast reductions tend to be some of the most satisfied plastic surgery patients as this is both a functional and cosmetic problem.
This is a condition of enlarged breasts in men that can be due to increased body weight, hereditary, hormones, or certain drugs, and is bothersome both physically and psychologically. The procedure involves liposuction, excising the excess glandular tissue, or a combination of both. For patients with more significant gynecomastia involving sagging breast tissue and a stretched areola, excess skin can be removed and the nipple can be restored to a masculine and aesthetic appearance.
These popular injectables temporarily reduce fine lines and wrinkles. They are most commonly used to reduce or eliminate forehead creases, frown lines (the “11’s”), crow’s feet at the corner of the eyes, and can also be used for treatment of a gummy smile and to soften a wide appearing lower face due to thick jaw muscles.
Dermal fillers are used to soften and reduce facial lines and to add volume and fullness. The most commonly treated areas for fillers include in the lower eyelids to reduce shadows and a sunken appearance, nasolabial folds, lips, cheekbones, jaw, chin, nose, hands, and in areas of contour deformity, scar, or hollowness. These products are most commonly composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body, and are an effective tool at restoring or adding volume, camouflaging imperfections, and restoring symmetry.
Platelet Rich Plasma is a natural and noninvasive technique that isolates platelets from your own blood. Platelets are rich in growth factors that have been found to stimulate hair growth, increase hair thickness, slow down hair loss, and improve healing in wounds and scars
Many patients suffer from scars that are painful, itchy, or cosmetically bothersome. While no scar can be completely invisible, scar revision helps improve the appearance of the scar, making it less noticeable. It also helps alleviate the bothersome symptoms that may be associated with keloid or hypertrophic scars.
Moles: Patients often decide to remove moles due to cosmetic reasons, or because they are medically worrisome due to an increase in size, shape, or color.
Lipomas: These are fatty growths found under the skin that can often be uncomfortable, or unsightly due to their location.
Cysts: These nodules are fluid filled, and despite attempts at non-surgical drainage, they often recur if the cyst sac is not surgically removed. By removing the sac and its contents, this significantly decreases the risk of recurrence.
Skin lesions: Patients often have skin growths that are found in cosmetically sensitive areas, or can be concerning for possible skin cancer. Removing these lesions in their entirety maintains a highly aesthetic result, and ensures that precautions are taken to rule out the possibility of skin cancer.
All lesions removed are submitted for evaluation by pathology to rule out the possibility of cancerous cells.
Patients often suffer with stretched, torn, or damaged earlobes. This can occur due to routine aging, heavy jewelry, or trauma. This quick procedure can be performed in the office under local anesthesia to restore the earlobe back to a natural look and restore symmetry.
Amazing...Dr Mahmood is very meticulous, professional and skilled. I am thrilled with my results. She provides options and plenty of information to make a sound decision. She is just as concerned with the results as you are and wants perfection. She personally sees her patients at each follow-up which was a key factor in choosing her as my surgeon. I wouldn’t see anyone else.
I’ve been thinking about breast augmentation for the last 4-5 years after I had my son. I constantly postponed it as I wasn’t sure about the complications, recovery time or simply who to go to. When I found Dr. Mahmood I had no doubts that I was doing this. She made me feel confident in the procedure and the recovery time, I had no doubts that all would be well. The second thing that impressed me besides her confidence and knowledge was her age! She is young, intelligent, detailed oriented and beyond professional. My results are excellent - main recovery took about two weeks, full recovery about 2 months. I was able to go back to working out and weightlifting including pushups and pull us within two months.
Dr Mahmood did my tummy tuck about 2 months ago. I had massive extra skin from previous weight loss surgery - about 150 lbs lost. She not only did an amazing job with only the bottom scar hip to hip, but she was able to lift from the bottom to help pull my falling top thigh. My scar is very thin, my belly button looks great, she did a little lipo on my flanks and I feel great, obviously I'm still a lil swollen but thats normal for a few months. She is an artist - best PS!!
It was such a pleasure working with Dr. Mahmood. From beginning to end she treated me with such great care and respect. She listens and provides great advice, never once did I feel like I was talking with a Doctor I didn’t understand ...she was like my friend. My procedure with her was a bit complex but she was easy to trust and so good at her craft that my results came out perfect! I couldn’t be happier!
I highly recommend Dr. Mahmood to any patient that is looking for a Physician 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.
This Doctor performed surgery on myself and my daughter. Her work exceeded both of our expectations. My healing process was great, I literally experienced no pain, my body looks marvelous and she has been the most professional, dedicated and caring professional I’ve exer met. I thank her so much for literally changing my life. God bless her to continue to enhance the lives of all of her patients.
First off i have to tell you that i took my time to do proper research! After searching for 2 to 3 years i came across Dr. Mahmood's great work.
I wanted to get abdominal surgery because.... well i was fat. I felt fat. I felt unhappy. I didnt like what i saw when i looked in the mirror. I was wearing girdles all the time. I was spending so much money on them because i became addicted to wearing them... sorta like a crutch! I needed different ones for different outfits. It was ridiculous! Yet, i still couldnt look at myself in the mirror.
I played with the idea of getting surgery for so long that after a while ididnt think i would have the courage to actually get it done but i went into the office. I spoke to the staff. I met Dr. Mahmood and i knew she had to be the one that "fixed" me. She is sweet and friendly and very informative. She made me feel at ease and so comfortable that when the time came to do the surgery, iwasnt scared at all!
This month is August. I did my surgery in May. I am a different person. I feel beautiful. I feel like a woman who finally has curves... well i do have curves... NOW. I can wear tight clothes. I have confidence. I love what i see in the mirror. And thats because of Dr. Mahmood!!!!
Guys, this is a real review! I am living proof that dreams are real and they do come through. I have no regrets. I would do it again if i had to. This feeling is so surreal and amazing. Im so greatful, thankful for blessed for being placed in her hands!
AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING! I was very nervous at first about getting my breast reduction but Dr. Mahmood removed all nervousness I had. Her work is phenomenal, she is very precise and tries to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. She puts her all into each and every patient so that they get the best possible results! I can't explain how Happy I am with my breast reduction and its all thanks to her! she removed the right amount of boob to still give me boobs without it being too heavy on my chest. I'm only about 3 months post-op and the scarring is barely visible. I will be forever grateful for her and her work !
My experience with Dr.Mahmood was nothing less than great ! She perfected my pout! My lips look great and I would highly recommend her. Dr.Mahmood has a great personality and made me feel very comfortable. She has great bed side manner.
Where do I begin my amazing experience with Dr. Mahmood?
My entire life I have had such bad medically induced anxiety (white coat syndrome) when visiting the doctors. I’ve wanted to get Botox and lip fillers for a while - but my anxiety of going to the doctors would always get in the way.
The moment I stepped into Dr. Mahmood’s office my anxiety totally went away! I felt so at ease with her; she took the time to carefully explain the process. After explaining she began injecting the Botox - I didn’t even flinch! It was so easy.... I’ve had eyebrow waxes that hurt more! I couldn’t be more happy with the results - my wrinkles ,that I’ve been self conscious about for a while, disappeared in days.
Next were lip fillers. I was hesitant to do both Botox and fillers at once... but her caring/educational/ informative demeanor gave me the confidence that I could do it!
Prior to doing lip fillers she sat down with me and explained the shape of my lips and where she planned to inject the filler to give a natural plump look and that’s exactly what I got!
I couldn’t be happier with my entire experience. I highly recommend Dr. Mahmood, not only is she super informative and makes you feel comfortable she’s so relatable, young, and on trend - you feel like she’s a friend giving you lip fillers and Botox!
From the consultation to the surgery date, Dr. Mahmood is so great to work with. She explains everything very clearly, and will answer any questions you may have. I recommend her to anyone considering surgery- especially breast aug, lipo and botox. Great results, while still looking natural!
Dr. Mahmood is fantastic. She is very pleasant, and goes above and beyond to meet a patients expectations. Dr. Mahmood is extremely skillful and precise. I still can not believe the beautiful results of the tummy tuck that she performed on me. I call her my “miracle worker” because the results of the procedure was an absolute miracle for me, far beyond what I expected. I definitely recommend Dr. Mahmood for any cosmetic procedures
