Microneedling with PRP (platelet rich plasma therapy) can improve skin tone and restore a radiant complexion without the need for surgery or extensive healing time. These two treatments work together to enhance skin texture and reduce the prominence of wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, and more. During microneedling, tiny holes are made in the skin to encourage your body’s natural healing mechanisms. Your platelet rich plasma is extracted from a blood sample and injected into the target area to further stimulate your skin’s ability to heal itself. By combining microneedling with platelet rich plasma therapy, patients can achieve smoother, glowing skin texture. Here’s 5 reasons to consider microneedling and PRP.
1.) Microneedling & PRP Can Treat Multiple Skin Irregularities
Microneedling and platelet rich plasma treatment can improve the appearance of many cosmetic concerns. Patients can target wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, blemishes, and sun damage. Common treatment areas include the face, neck, and arms.
2.) Microneedling & PRP Work Together
Microneedling and PRP work synergistically to achieve optimal results. The tiny holes made from microneedling treatment help your body better absorb PRP injections, while PRP injections enhance your skin’s ability to heal and stimulate collagen following microneedling.
3.) Microneedling & PRP Are Non-Surgical & Can Be Completed Quickly
There is no invasive surgery when undergoing microneedling or PRP. General anesthesia is not necessary and treatments can be completed rather quickly.
4.) Microneedling & PRP Require Minimal Downtime
Microneedling and PRP do not require extensive recovery time following treatment. You may experience some swelling, bruising, peeling, or redness for a couple of days. Patients can typically resume their daily activities within a few days of undergoing treatment.
5.) Microneedling & PRP Can Achieve Long-Lasting Results
Microneedling and PRP are designed to achieve natural-looking, long-lasting enhancements to skin texture and complexion. You can expect to see results in the weeks following your microneedling and platelet rich plasma treatment.

The eyes are one of the first facial areas to experience the signs of aging. Drooping eyelids, puffy under-eye bags, and festoons can each contribute to an older-looking, tired appearance. Upper and lower blepharoplasty can achieve youthful-looking eyelids by surgically correcting hollowness and puffiness of the eyes. Learn more about your eyelid surgery options below.
Upper blepharoplasty can treat sagging skin above the eyelids. During upper eyelid surgery, loose skin is repositioned or removed. The underlying musculature can also be tightened to improve firmness.
During lower blepharoplasty, under-eye bags can be surgically corrected. Puffiness or bulging can be reduced by selectively tightening each layer of the lower eyelids. Loose skin and underlying muscles are repositioned and tiny amounts of excess fat can also be removed.
Festoons and malar bags can contribute to eyelid puffiness and dark circles. These genetic conditions may be caused be either excess fat or muscle laxity. In order to properly diagnose the cause of your festoons or malar bags, Dr. Asaadi can perform a “Botox® Test.” During this test, Botox® is injected into the areas around your eyes. If your festoons get worse following the injection, then they are most likely caused by muscle laxity. However, if there is no change in your malar bags after your Botox® injection, then your festoons are likely caused by excess fat.
Once Dr. Asaadi properly diagnoses your festoons or malar bags, he can surgically correct them by removing fat deposits or releasing the ligaments of your surrounding eye muscles.

Rhinoplasty (also known as nose surgery) can achieve nose symmetry and enhance shape. Rhinoplasty can improve the nose tip, bridge, or nostrils to enhance your overall facial profile. Additionally, nose surgery can alleviate breathing issues caused by a deviated septum. For patients who want to reshape the nose without undergoing surgery, non-surgical rhinoplasty using cosmetic fillers may be an ideal option. Injectables can add natural-looking definition without the need for surgery or extensive downtime. Learn more about your nose surgery options!
During nose surgery, your plastic surgeon will reshape and re-sculpt cartilage to accentuate nose shape. There are two different rhinoplasty techniques used during nose surgery: open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty.
During open rhinoplasty, incisions are placed on the inside of your nose, with a tiny incision made at the base of your nostrils. Closed rhinoplasty, however, places all incisions inside of your nose. Rhinoplasty can achieve long-lasting, substantial improvements to your nose shape. Rhinoplasty patients can typically resume their daily activities within weeks.
When choosing non-surgical rhinoplasty, cosmetic injections are used to correct crookedness, bumps, or asymmetries. Your plastic surgeon will inject the cosmetic filler into the desired area(s) of the nose to improve shape. Non-surgical rhinoplasty can be completed in minutes and there is no downtime or recovery necessary following your cosmetic injectable treatment. Many non-surgical rhinoplasty results last months before touch-up treatments are required to maintain results.

The neck is often considered a problem area for many patients. Over time, skin may begin to sag and fat deposits may accumulate, leading to the appearance of a “double chin.” There are plenty of neck rejuvenation options available to restore a firmer, more youthful neck and jawline. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer Ultherapy®, Kybella®, neck liposuction, and neck lift surgery to improve the appearance of your neck. Learn more about your neck rejuvenation options below.
Ultherapy ® Skin Tightening
Ultherapy® is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment that can improve skin texture while reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Ultherapy® uses ultrasound energy to lift and firm sagging tissues. Ultherapy® can also encourage the production of collagen fibers, which improves skin elasticity. There is no downtime or recovery needed and Ultherapy® patients can resume daily activities immediately.
Kybella® For Double Chin
Kybella® is a non-invasive injection to reduce the appearance of double chin. Kybella® is made from deoxycholic acid, which helps absorb excess fat in the body. Kybella® is injected into the chin to eliminate unwanted fat cells. Kybella® treatments can be completed in 15 minutes and multiple sessions spread out over weeks are ideal for optimal results. You can return to your daily routine immediately after completing treatment.
Neck Liposuction To Remove Stubborn Fat
Neck liposuction can remove stubborn pockets of unwanted neck fat to enhance neck contours. During neck lipo, a tiny incision is made and a small cannula is inserted beneath the skin to extract unwanted fat cells. Neck liposuction can achieve long-lasting, natural-looking results with minimal downtime and recovery.
Neck Lift Surgery To Firm Sagging Skin
A neck lift can restore a more youthful-looking neck by targeting loose neck skin. During neck lift surgery, the underlying structures of the neck, like Platysma muscles are corrected by tightening & reshaping. Drooping or sagging skin can be lifted and repositioned, while excess skin can be removed. The result is a firmer-looking neck. A neck lift requires a few weeks of downtime, but can yield long-term results.

Pregnancy can result in a variety of body changes, including weakened abdominal muscles or a loss of firmness around the upper, mid, and lower body. Many patients would like to correct sagging or hanging skin and tighten loose stomach muscles post-pregnancy. A comprehensive body lift can properly address loose skin around the abdomen, breasts, arms, back, thighs, and buttocks to achieve a slimmer-looking figure.
Tighten The Abdomen
A body lift can tighten lax skin around the midsection, while also removing any excess skin. Stretched or weakened abdominal muscles are surgically repaired to reduce bulging and achieve a slimmer waistline. Dr. Asaadi utilizes the “Table Tilt Test” to identify any additional abdominal bulging by placing the patient into a semi-sitting position. He then uses his CORE AbdominoplastySM technique to tighten the midsection. CORE AbdominoplastySM can also relieve lower back pain caused by weakness of the abdominal muscles by restoring tone to the muscles.
Shape The Breasts
The breasts can be tightened and lifted to correct sagging using a breast lift. Additionally, the areolas and nipples can be repositioned to achieve more youthful-looking breasts.
Slim The Arms
Arm lift surgery can remove hanging arm skin while also re-draping areas of loose skin to restore slender-looking arms. An arm lift can correct “bat wings,” or pockets of skin around the upper arm that hang downward.
Firm The Back
Body lift surgery can target lax skin around the upper back, shoulders, mid back, flanks, and lower back. Skin can be surgically repositioned or removed, if necessary.
Shape The Thighs
A thigh lift can reshape your inner and outer thighs to ensure lower body symmetry. Thigh lift surgery can improve thigh contours and relieve chafing caused by excess skin around the thighs.
Tighten The Buttocks
Enhance the size and shape of your buttocks with a body lift. Sagging buttocks skin can be addressed for a firmer-looking lower body.
