  • Abdominoplasty
  • Umbilical Hernia Repair


Y came to my clinic with the main concern of a bad scar from her previous C section. Her C section scar was obliquely orientated and resulted in a fatty roll hanging over the scar. She also had a small umbilical hernia found on physical exam. Her scar line was shifted to be hidden under her underwear, extra fat roll was removed and her umbilical hernia was repaired at the same time.


“Three years after giving birth to my baby by C section, finally decided to do abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) mainly to rid of a terrible post operation scar and extra skin.

I was recommended to see Dr. Lao. Made an appointment and everything was very prompt. Not knowing much about the procedure other than information online and what I’ve heard from people, I was highly doubtful and worried. However once I met Dr. Lao and explained to me the details of the procedure thoroughly I decided to go with it. As any worried and curious patient, I had questions and he answered them very clearly with confidence, I felt very at ease. Dr Lao was very friendly, easy, confident and courteous. The entire office environment was very relaxed and organized. He explained to me what to expect, the post operation timing, I was also very particular with the timing of the surgery and Dr Lao accommodated my schedule.

On the day of the surgery I was extremely nervous and Dr Lao again made me feel comfortable and optimistic.

I saw him right after the surgery where he explained how the procedure went and what to expect in terms of recovery.

Then I saw Dr Lao a week later and was very pleased to see the results. The healing process went well and the scar looked much better than what I expected and saw on internet. He reconstructed my belly button and I was very happy and pleased with the appearance. Throughout the whole process, from the beginning until after operation, Dr Lao answered my questions and emails quite quickly and even called me right reading my emails.

I am very happy I chose Dr Lao to perform my surgery, the whole team was just wonderful, caring and friendly.

Thank you Dr Lao!

“Через три года после рождения моего ребенка Я наконец решила сделать пластику живота, главным образом чтобы избавиться от страшного после операционного шрам и экстра кожи. Мне рекомендовали доктора Лао. Я назначила визит который назначили очень быстро. Не зная многого о процедуре, кроме информации онлайн и что я слышала от людей я была весьма сомнительно настроена и беспокоилась. Однако, как только я встретила доктора Лао и он объяснил мне подробно о процедуре, я решила рискнуть. Как у любого переживающего и любознательного пациента у меня возникaли вопросы и он отвечал на них очень четко и с уверенностью. Я чувствовалa себя очень непринужденно в присутсвии доктора Лао, он всегда очень дружелюбнo настроен, уверен в себе и вежлив. Весь персонал офисa был вежливым и внимательным. Доктор объяснил мне, чего ожидать после операции. В день операции я очень нервничалa и д-р Лао снова заставил меня чувствовать себя комфортно и оптимистично. Я увиделa его сразу после операции где он объяснил, как прошла процедура и процесс восстановления. Потом я увидел доктора Лао неделю спустя и он был очень рад результатом. Процесс заживления шёл хорошо и шрам выглядел намного лучше чем я ожидалa и виделa в Интернете. Доктор реконструирован мой пупок и я былa очень доволенa как он выглядел. На протяжении всего процесса от начала до окончания работы, доктор Лао отвечал на мои вопросы и электронные письма очень быстро и даже позвонил мне сразу прочитав мой емайл . Я очень счастливa что я выбралa доктора Лао, вся его команда была просто замечательная, внимательная и дружелюбная. Спасибо Вам, доктор Лао!”


Z, 33, Hispanic

Z is a 33 year-old mother whose abdomen could not return to her pre pregancy state. After consultation, abdominoplasty was performed in conjunction with umbilical hernia repair, left accessory breast tissue removal and body liposuction. Her incision is well hidden and her stretch marks in the lower abdomen were removed.


N, 42, Caucasian

N is a mother of two and was referred to me through her friends. She was most concerned about her protuberant belly. She has tried exercises and diet but was unable to reach the body shape she wanted. To repair both the muscle separation and give her the flat abdomen she wanted, abdominoplasty with a focus on body liposuction was done.


S, 36, Caucasian

S is a physician himself. He had gone through cycles of weight gain and weight loss in the past 10 years. This has caused him tremendous mental distress because of the body image he hoped to obtain. After considering all the surgical options and his current condition and goal, liposuction with abdominoplasty was done.


P, 34, Hispanic

P is a mother of two. She would like to regain her pre-pregnancy body shape and wear her bikini again. Liposuction and abdominoplasty with a low bikini line incision was designed for her. She was very happy with her result and quickly got tanned from the beach after surgery!


N, 42, Caucasian

N came to see me mainly because of the protuberant belly that persisted since childbirth. She complains that she still looks like 6 months pregnant. On exam, her large belly was mainly from the separation of muscles from multiple large pregnancies. To give her the best result possible, only a very small amount of body liposuction was done and surgery was focused on repairing the separated muscle underneath.


W, 62, Asian

W works as a nurse in New York. She moved to the USA from Taiwan many years ago. She came to me for desire of having a youthful abdomen body back. Her main complaint is the wrinkled abdomen and the lack of waistline curve.


Y, 45, Caucasian

Y came to my clinic with the main concern of a bad scar from her previous C section. Her C section scar was obliquely orientated and resulted in a fatty roll hanging over the scar. She also had a small umbilical hernia found on physical exam. Her scar line was shifted to be hidden under her underwear, extra fat roll was removed and her umbilical hernia was repaired at the same time.
