As one of a limited number of plastic surgeons in New York City, Dr. Afridi is specifically interested in women's health issues as they relate to plastic surgery. She is keenly aware of the needs of young moms who want to experience the joys of family but keep their pre-baby physiques. Therefore, Dr. Afridi has established a particular interest, and is specializing, in post-maternity body reshaping.
Dr. Afridi is committed to providing her patients with individualized care tailored specifically to each person's needs, goals and expectations. She takes pride in providing one-on-one, personalized attention to her patients and feels it is important for a plastic surgeon to balance professionalism with empathy and patient-oriented care.
