Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck Maplewood, NJ

Patients who have loose skin and stubborn fat around their midsection can smooth out their stomach with abdominoplasty. Dr. Bulan makes an incision below the underwear line to remove the excess skin and fat; he then tightens the remaining skin. As necessary, he can also tighten the abdominal muscles to restore definition to the stomach and adjust the navel so that it looks more natural. So long as the patient maintains a steady weight, the results from tummy tuck are permanent.


Breast Augmentation

Breast Enhancement Maplewood, NJ

Breast augmentation is a popular surgery that adds fullness and volume to the breasts to enhance the breast profile. With many styles of breast implants on hand, Dr. Bulan understands how to achieve the precise size, shape, projections, placement and feel so that the patient attains the ideal breasts they have always wanted. With a refined technique and artistic eye, Dr. Bulan is known for creating breasts that are not only attractive, but also natural-looking.



Revision Nose Surgery Maplewood, NJNose reshaping remains the most popular cosmetic surgery in the United States, in large part because it can make so many types of changes: narrowing the bridge, smoothing out a hump, changing the projection of the nasal tip, adjusting nostril size and improving symmetry. Although most rhinoplasty procedures are cosmetic in nature, Dr. Bulan can also straighten a crooked septum so that air flows better through the nose.



Body Contouring Maplewood, NJLiposuction is a fat reduction surgery that suctions out stubborn fat cells that have been resistant to diet and exercise. These cells are removed permanently, so the new contours achieved with this procedure can last a lifetime as long the patient maintains a steady weight moving forward. Liposuction works successfully on many areas of the body, including the abdomen, back, upper arms, thighs, chin and buttocks.


Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction Maplewood, NJOversized breasts can be a source of unwanted attention and quite literally a pain in the neck, as well as the shoulders and back. Breast reduction is a surgical solution for women who wish their breasts were moderately to significantly smaller. Dr. Bulan uses advanced techniques to carefully remove skin, tissue and fat from the breasts. His photo gallery demonstrates that his breast reduction results are attractive, natural-looking and in proportion to the patient’s frame.


Breast Lift

Breast Lift Surgery Maplewood, NJBreast lift is a popular procedure for correcting breast ptosis (or droopiness), common in women who have lost weight, breastfed or reached middle age. With this surgery, Dr. Bulan can rejuvenate the breasts by positioning them higher on the chest. He also repositions the areolas so that they sit higher on the breast and the nipples project outward in a perky manner. Women can enjoy these youthful results for about 10 to 15 years before another lift is necessary to maintain the results.



Facelift Maplewood, NJFacelift is a highly effective surgery for undoing mild, moderate or severe signs of aging on the lower half of the face. When Dr. Bulan performs facelift, he removes sagging skin along the neck, removes fat deposits along the jawline to restore definition and tightens the wrinkled skin around the mouth to smooth out fine lines. He deliberately avoids draping the skin too tightly so as to prevent that unnatural “pulled” look seen in other doctors’ work.


Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover Maplewood, NJBreast sagging and a stubborn pooch are a frequent reality for women after having a baby. Mommy makeover combines popular procedures, including breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck and liposuction, to make cosmetic upgrades to the body following pregnancy. Together, Dr. Bulan and his patient devise a surgical plan that will best address problem areas and revive the kind of body that does not look like it has had kids.


Non-Surgical Procedures

Non-Surgical Derma Fillers Maplewood, NJNot all cosmetic procedures involve surgery. Dr. Bulan also provides minimally invasive procedures like injectables (both Botox and Juvederm) to restore a youthfulness to the face. Laser treatments like laser skin tightening stimulate collagen production to tighten loose skin. Laser skin resurfacing helps to smooth the skin and restore an even tone. Finally, laser hair removal uses heat to target hair follicles and prevent hair from growing back in this area to cut down the time patients spend shaving.
