What You Should Know:
As a female plastic surgeon, Dr. Friedlander is sensitive to her patients’ aesthetic needs. She understands that appearance conveys an inner sense of beauty and self esteem. With impeccable credentials and an outstanding staff, Dr. Friedlander has created a boutique practice that is responsive to the unique circumstances of each patient.
Appearance is the first way we communicate with those around us. Like every woman, Dr. Friedlander knows that her makeup, hair and clothing all convey important messages about her. She also understands that some women are hesitant to make a commitment to plastic surgery, apprehensive about how it will affect their family and professional life. Our responsibilities at work and at home can be overwhelming and prevent us from taking care of ourselves the way we should.
But plastic surgery, no matter how big or small a procedure, can make all the difference in how we feel about ourselves and interact with those around us.
Qualifications, credentials, and certificates are crucial, but your relationship with the surgeon is vital.

She specializes in cosmetic surgery of the breast, body and face, including enhancements (implants), lifts, reductions and reconstructions of the breast; body contouring and tummy tucks; liposuction of all areas, and surgical and non-surgical treatments to create a more youthful appearance of the face and eyes, including fillers, Botox, Ultherapy and Skin Care.

I am 65 years old and had never been overweight in my life, until I delivered my second baby at the age of 35 and came home weighing 170 pounds. Although I joined Weight Watchers and got back to my normal weight of around 130, the fat was still around the stomach area. Strict dieting and exercising didn’t do a thing to change that. I had a mini tummy tuck in 1996, which removed some fat, but my stomach wasn’t as flat as I thought it would be. I continued to exercise and diet for the next 16 years, but the problem wouldn’t go away. As a matter of fact, the stomach area became fatter and gravity took its course during the last few years. Even worse, cellulite formed on my back and hip area. I was so unhappy that I did not want to look at myself in the mirror or go anywhere. When I turned 65, I made my decision to have a full tummy tuck, something I had actually been thinking about for years.
Debbie, one of my friends, is a nurse for Dr. Friedlander, so I finally decided to meet her. Even though the doctor said she’d give me a flat stomach and minimize my stretch marks, I couldn’t quite believe it. Nevertheless, I made my decision to go ahead with the full tummy tuck. When I look in the mirror now, I still can’t believe it’s me. My stomach is flat and I have absolutely no fat in the back or hips. I can wear anything I want. I am so happy! I am continuing to diet and exercise.
I have been married for 34 years to a wonderful man. When I walk around in tight-fitting clothes or in a bikini, my husband says: ‘What a great body you have, hon!’ I have not heard that in years. My marriage is more amazing than ever. I feel like I have the body I had when I was 20, before I had children. I get compliments on my body all the time.
Dr. Friedlander have me back the life and figure I once had. The pain after surgery was not bad. I was up and around after one week. Dr. Friedlander has a wonderful bedside manner. My fear of this surgery went away the day I met her.
Thank you, Dr. Friedlander, for giving me back my life and happiness.
