Facelift Without Downtime - NJ Non Invasive Facelift Options

POSTED ON FRIDAY, JULY 01, 2022 AT 9:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

The signs of facial aging are often the most noticeable, causing many patients to seek facial rejuvenation procedures in NJ. While many patients are great candidates for facelift surgery, non-invasive procedures can offer solutions to facial aging without having to go under the scalpel or take extended downtime.

These procedures provide long-lasting, natural-looking results and are ideal for patients looking to combat the signs of facial aging.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is effective in treating blemishes, damaged skin, and other signs of aging. Using precise laser technology, laser skin resurfacing can be tailored to fit the individual goals of each patient.

There are various laser options available to treat different facial concerns. Dr. Asaadi is able to help patients decide which option is best for achieving their desired results. Laser skin resurfacing can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are used to treat imperfections of the skin, often caused by aging, genetics, or excessive sun exposure. Through different levels of exfoliation, chemical peels can correct a wide variety of skin irregularities on the face.

There are three levels of chemical peels; light chemical peels, medium chemical peels, and deep chemical peels. Each peel targets a different layer of the skin and provides different results. Dr. Asaadi will help you decide which level of chemical peel is necessary to achieve your desired rejuvenation results.

Botox®

Botox® is a cosmetic injectable that reduces the signs of facial aging. Botox® is effective in treating wrinkles that form around the mouth, eyes, and forehead due to repeated facial muscle contractions.

Botox® works by temporarily limiting the facial expressions that lead to fine lines and wrinkles. This procedure takes approximately 10-20 minutes to perform and can easily be tailored to fit the desired results of each patient.

Ultherapy®

Ultherapy® is a non-invasive skin-tightening treatment that is used to lift and tone facial tissue that has lost elasticity or begun to sag. Using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy® uses direct sound waves to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen.

Because of its minimally-invasive nature, Ultherapy® patients can return to their regular activities almost immediately after undergoing the procedure. Visible improvements can be noticed following your first treatment, but the results will continue to develop in the months to follow.

Dr. Asaadi and his staff are on hand to answer any questions you may have concerning non-surgical treatments. Contact our New Jersey office at 913.731.7000, our New York office at 212.938.0158, or you may request an appointment online today!

Breast Implant Removal and Replacement - NJ Cosmetic Surgery

POSTED ON MONDAY, JUNE 27, 2022 AT 6:09 PM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

Breast augmentation is a common cosmetic procedure performed to enhance breast size and shape. This surgery uses implants to increase breast size, providing patients with a fuller or more feminine-looking chest.

While breast implants remain a common plastic surgery procedure, many patients are choosing to remove their implants for a variety of reasons. Over the years, as our bodies change shape and size, some patients may feel their breast implants no longer suit their figure. In some cases, patients may seek breast explant surgery following capsular contracture or other complications. Silicone breast implants are also commonly removed to switch to saline implants, known to be safer and more natural-looking. Whether you’re seeking breast implant removal for medical or aesthetic concerns, Dr. Asaadi can perform breast implant removal and breast implant replacement based on your goals and desires.

What is Breast Implant Removal?

Breast implant removal is performed to extract breast implants from a previous breast augmentation. The procedure can also remove any residual scar tissue.

What is Breast Implant Replacement?

Breast implant replacement is performed in order to replace existing breast implants with ones that are safer or more suitable for the patient. Dr. Asaadi offers breast implant revision to remove old implants with implants that fit your anatomy. Dr. Asaadi only uses saline breast implants.

Reasons for Breast Implant Removal or Replacement

  •  Unhappiness With Breast Size
  •  Correct Implant Rupture or Leakage
  •  An Infection
  •  Correct Results from a Previous Surgeon
  •  Change in Physique
  •  Accident or Injury to Breast Implant

What to Expect Before Breast Implant Removal or Replacement

Before your breast implant removal or replacement, Dr. Asaadi will perform a thorough examination to assess your current implants and create a plan that will fit your needs. During the procedure, anesthesia will be administered to ensure your comfort and safety throughout the process. The implants will then be removed from a small incision under the breast. New implants will be inserted through this same incision if the patient has chosen to replace them.

What to Expect After Breast Implant Removal or Replacement

The recovery process following a breast implant removal or replacement will vary depending on the patient, considering everyone heals at different rates. Swelling, discomfort, and bruising are common and will gradually subside as the healing process progresses. It is important that patients rest and allow their bodies proper time to mend.

Breast Implant Removal Paired with Breast Lift

Oftentimes, breast lift surgery is recommended following breast implant removal. After larger implants are removed, the breast tissue can be weakened and sagging. A breast lift can remove excess skin and reposition the nipples, creating a youthful-looking, perkier chest. The results of breast implant removal paired with breast lift appear natural and are long-lasting.

Prepare Your Skin For Summer - NJ Skin Care Treatments

POSTED ON MONDAY, MAY 09, 2022 AT 3:12 PM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

Just as changing seasons means a shift in our wardrobe, it also creates new challenges for our skin.

As the hot and humid summer season creeps up, our skin’s balance can be disrupted, resulting in inflammation and irritation.Our face is especially susceptible to these changes, as it is always receiving direct exposure to the elements.

Sun damage from UV rays ages the skin and encourages the development of sun spots and discoloration, so after a summer of beach trips and tanning, our skin could certainly use a pick me up.

At Asaadi Plastic Surgery we offer a number of treatments which can help lift away dead skin cells, remove blemishes and imperfections, and restore moisture in preparation for the upcoming season.

Following skin care treatments, patients should be conscious of their time in the sun until fully healed. The skin will be extremely sensitive, so it’s important to load up on SPF and other forms of sun protection such as hats, umbrellas, or seeking shade in order to receive optimal results.

 

Chemical Peel

Chemical peels can exfoliate the skin, promote skin cell regeneration, treat fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, and even the skin tone. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery we offer 3 varieties of chemical peels which differ in strength of treatment and chemical composition.

The light chemical peel gently removes dead and damaged skin to treat fine lines, acne, and discoloration, as well as promote the production of collagen and elastin. The medium chemical peel improves discoloration and facial lines with a deeper rejuvenating effect than the light chemical peel. The deep chemical peel delivers the most prominent results in the treatment of wrinkles, facial lines, acne scars, and uneven pigmentation by revitalizing the deepest layers of the skin that cause blemishes and cosmetic irregularities. Patients can expect noticeably smoother and brighter skin with a full-face chemical peel treatment.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing uses lasers to treat skin imperfections such as wrinkles, acne, age spots, and other cosmetic irregularities that occur with aging. A full-face treatment may be performed, or trouble areas of the skin can be targeted at various depths using an assortment of lasers. Each laser is designed to achieve a unique goal, such as skin tightening, the reduction of sun spots or blemishes, the production of new collagen, and more.

Microneedling with PRP

Microneedling with platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin to enhance skin firmness and structure, while reducing the appearance of wrinkles, acne scarring, and other cosmetic irregularities. Microneedling is performed using the COSMOPen tool which places tiny punctures in the skin, while platelet rich plasma isolated from your own blood sample is injected into treated areas to enhance healing and achieve natural, longer-lasting results.

HydraFacial MD®

HydraFacial MD® is a noninvasive hydradermabrasion skin treatment which combines cleansing, extraction, and hydration to rejuvenate and soothe skin. HydraFacial MD® uses cleansing serums, facial peels, hydrating, and healing extracts in a four-stage process to resurface the skin and brighten the complexion. Patients can expect an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, uneven skin tone, lost elasticity, skin congestion, blemishes, age spots, and overall skin texture with the HydraFacial MD® treatment.

Casmara Facial Masks

Casmara facial masks use mineral substances, healing extracts, and natural ingredients to firm and moisturize the skin while also protecting it from free radicals and other environmental aggressors such as smoke, UV rays, pollution, and stress. Casmara face masks are suitable for a variety of skin types, and can reduce inflammation and the prominence of facial aging.

Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about skin care and aesthetic treatments. Contact our New Jersey office at 973.731.7000, or you may request an appointment online today!

Aging Eyes – Surgical & Non-Surgical Fixes in NJ

POSTED ON MONDAY, APRIL 04, 2022 AT 3:37 PM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

It’s a known fact that the skin surrounding the eyes ages faster than the rest of the face. Due to the thinness of the skin, years of facial expressions, dryness, and sun damage, the appearance of your eyes may leave you feeling older than you really are.

Dr. Asaadi performs both surgical and non-surgical eye rejuvenation procedures for patients looking to achieve a more youthful-looking appearance.

Ultherapy®

Ultherapy® is a non-invasive procedure that is highly effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles surrounding the eye area. Through the distribution of sound wave technology, Ultherapy® stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, leaving the skin with a tightened effect.

Ultherapy® is an extremely safe and effective solution to combat aging around the eyes. This procedure requires no scalpels, stitches, or surgery, so patients can return to their daily lives immediately after receiving the treatment. Ultherapy® can be performed in-office and takes as little as 30-60 minutes depending on the patient.

Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty

During the non-surgical blepharoplasty procedure, Botox® is carefully injected around the eyes to fill areas where volume has been lost and restore the appearance of the eyes. Through this process, movement in the treated area becomes limited, decreasing the number of fine lines that may develop from facial expressions in the future.

Non-surgical blepharoplasty can be completed in less than 30 minutes and provides patients with results that can last years without requiring additional rejuvenation. Unlike surgical options, non-surgical blepharoplasty requires no downtime and results can be seen immediately.

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery, or surgical blepharoplasty, is a procedure in which excess skin and fat are removed from the patient’s eyelids in order to diminish the appearance of tiredness or loss of elasticity in this area. This procedure is successful in addressing crow’s feet, eyelid creases, hollowness around the eyes, and more. Dr. Asaadi is skilled in performing eyelid surgery on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, depending on patient preference.

During this procedure, Dr. Asaadi carefully tightens and repositions the skin in order to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes. The procedure typically takes 1-3 hours to complete and healing takes about 7-10 days.

Dr. Asaadi and his staff are on hand to answer any questions you may have concerning eye rejuvenation. Contact our New Jersey office at 913.731.7000, our New York office at 212.938.0158, or you may request an appointment online today!

NJ Breast Reduction – Benefits & What to Expect

POSTED ON TUESDAY, MARCH 01, 2022 AT 3:37 PM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

It’s often assumed that all women desire larger, more voluminous breasts. However, this isn’t the case.

Many women struggle with overly large breasts that lead to chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain, chafing, skin irritation, and overall discomfort. Not to mention, overly large breasts often hinder mobility and self-image.

Dr. Asaadi performs breast reduction procedures for patients looking to achieve more natural-looking or smaller breasts. Breast reduction can also be used to achieve better symmetry of the chest.

What is Breast Reduction Surgery?

Also known as reduction mammoplasty, breast reduction works by removing excess fat, breast tissue, and skin through small incisions.

Breast reduction surgery is often combined with a breast lift for a balanced and youthful-looking result.

Along with decreasing the breast size, breast reduction can also achieve a natural-looking shape to the chest.

 

Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery

The breast reduction procedure can offer patients life-changing benefits. Whether choosing to undergo breast reduction surgery for medical or cosmetic reasons, patient satisfaction is always at the forefront.

Check out some of the benefits of breast reduction surgery:

  •      A well-proportioned body
  •      More ease when exercising
  •      Alleviation of back / shoulder pain
  •      Better fitting clothing
  •      Improved hygiene

The Pedicle Technique

Breast reduction is often performed using the pedicle technique. This technique entails moving the nipple and the areola higher on the breast, attaching it to the pedicle tissue. By doing so, the functionality of the breast and sensitivity of the nipples remain intact.

Breast Reduction Surgery What to Expect

Before your breast reduction procedure, you can expect a thorough breast exam. This ensures the procedure is right for you, as well as what technique will work best and how much fat / tissue may need to be removed.

Following your breast reduction surgery, drains may be placed to promote proper healing. Additionally, your breasts will be wrapped and you will be required to wear a support garment to reduce discomfort.

Your breasts may be sore following the procedure and you may experience bruising, swelling, and discomfort. Recovery is known to be different for each patient.

You should avoid rigorous activity for at least 1 month following surgery. As the healing process progresses, you will notice a decrease in breast size.

Dr. Asaadi and his staff are on hand to answer any questions you may have concerning breast reduction. Contact our New Jersey office at 913.731.7000, our New York office at 212.938.0158, or you may request an appointment online today!
