NJ Breast Explant Surgery To Remove Breast Implants

POSTED ON MONDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2021 AT 9:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

Breast augmentation is a popular breast enhancement surgery that uses implants to add volume to the breasts. While breast augmentation is a safe and effective treatment, some patients may one day choose to remove or replace their breast implants.

Breast explant surgery is designed to remove breast implants for cosmetic or medical concerns. Patients sometimes choose to combine breast explant surgery with breast augmentation to remove past implants and replace them with new implants. Replacing previous implants following breast explant surgery can maintain the size and shape of the breasts.

Breast lift surgery may also be combined with breast explant surgery to ensure the breasts are youthful-looking following the removal of breast implants. 

Breast Implant Cosmetic Concerns

Patients often choose to undergo breast explant surgery when they are concerned about the cosmetic appearance of their breast implants. Some patients may feel they would like a larger or smaller size implant to better complement changes to their physique over time. 

While the implants may not be causing any harm, some patients prefer to replace their current breast implants with new implants or remove the breast implants altogether.

Breast Implants Are Too Large: If a patient has lost significant weight or no longer desires the size implants that they have, breast explant surgery can remove implants that no longer complement a patient’s figure. If the patient desires, Dr. Asaadi can replace these implants with smaller breast implants.

Breast Implants Are Too Small: Some patients wish to increase overall breast size. In these cases, breast explant surgery can be performed to remove breast implants and combined with revision breast augmentation to insert larger implants.

Breast Implants Appear Unnatural-Looking: If a patient has undergone breast augmentation with a less skilled plastic surgeon, Dr. Asaadi can remove breast implants and replace them. Revision breast augmentation can also be performed if the patient desires.

No Longer Desire Breast Implants: Sometimes, a patient may simply no longer desire breast implants. Breast explant surgery can be performed to remove breast implants. In many cases, a breast lift is performed to ensure the breasts appear youthful following the removal of breast implants.

Breast Implant Medical Concerns

While breast augmentation is a very safe cosmetic procedure, there are certain medical concerns that may arise from having breast implants. Through Dr. Asaadi’s years in practice, he has accomplished a 100% success rate of breast implant surgery without medical concerns such as capsular contracture or implant leakage.

Breast Implant Infection: Breast explant can remove implants that have caused a bacterial infection in the tissue around the implants.

Capsular Contracture: Capsular contracture causes the tissues in the breasts to tighten and become too firm, which can lead to the breasts being painful or unnatural-looking. Breast explant surgery is required to remove these implants and treat the underlying medical condition.

Breast Implant Rupture: A breast implant may rupture or leak following an accident or physical trauma. A leaking or damaged breast implant must be removed to ensure proper breast health.

Correcting Stomach Bulging With CORE Abdominoplasty NJ

POSTED ON TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 07, 2021 AT 9:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

Loose, sagging skin as well as excess fat deposits on the abdomen can make a person feel self-conscious. For many plastic surgeons, a tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, has traditionally been the solution to remove excess abdominal skin and fat. While tummy tuck surgery is an effective body contouring treatment, it can miss abdominal bulging due to the technique surgeons have come to rely on. CORE Abdominoplasty℠ is a revolutionary tummy tuck procedure that allows for the precise repair of weakened abdominal muscles.

Tummy Tuck VS. CORE Abdominoplasty℠

A tummy tuck is performed with the patient lying flat to remove excess fat and skin from the midsection while tightening the underlying abdominal muscles. CORE Abdominoplasty℠ is performed similar to a tummy tuck with the patient lying flat. However, once the muscles are tightened during CORE Abdominoplasty℠, the patient is then positioned at a 45° angle to allow Dr. Asaadi to see any additional bulging that may be present in the sitting position. CORE Abdominoplasty℠ allows for further tightening of the muscles layers within the abdomen for more sculpted results.

Tummy Tuck: Performed with the patient lying flat to allow for excess fat and skin to be removed while tightening the underlying muscles.

CORE Abdominoplasty℠: The patient is positioned at a 45° angle during surgery to allow for more comprehensive results and further tightening of the muscle layers.

Benefits Of CORE Abdominoplasty℠

CORE Abdominoplasty℠ is an effective treatment to contour the midsection and remove loose, drooping skin. Because CORE Abdominoplasty℠ allows for additional tightening of the muscle layers, patients enjoy a smoother, firmer abdominal profile than with traditional tummy tuck surgery. CORE Abdominoplasty℠ is ideal for patients who have experienced significant weight loss or for women who have given birth and experience weakened abdominal muscles. Results from CORE Abdominoplasty℠ are long-lasting and natural-looking.

CORE Abdominoplasty℠ Benefits      

  • Removes Excess Skin & Fat
  • Repairs & Tightens Weakened Muscles
  • Comprehensive Results For A Slim, Firm Midsection
  • Ideal For Women After Childbirth
  • Long-Lasting, Natural-Looking Results
  • Can Alleviate Lower Back Pain

Eyelid Surgery In NJ To Treat Festoons, Malar Bags, & Eyelid Ptosis

POSTED ON TUESDAY, AUGUST 10, 2021 AT 9:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

Eyelid surgery, which is also commonly referred to as blepharoplasty, can rejuvenate the eyes for a younger-looking appearance. With age, many patients may notice that their upper or lower eyelids begin to sag and droop. Wrinkling around the eyes can cause a person to look tired and appear older than they actually are. In more severe cases, lax skin on the upper eyelid can even impair vision.

Dr. Asaadi offers blepharoplasty to treat a variety of conditions related to the lower and upper eyelids. Some of the most common issues treated during eyelid surgery include improving festoons, malar bags, and eyelid ptosis.

Blepharoplasty Benefits

  • Restores A Youthful-Looking Appearance
  • Removes Excess Tissues & Skin
  • Effective Treatment For The Upper & Lower Eyelids
  • Discretely Placed Incisions
  • Long-Lasting, Natural-Looking Results

Eyelid Surgery For Festoons

Festoons form under the lower eyelid and are often caused by aging, excessive sun exposure, or smoking. Festoons cause the skin beneath the lower eyelid to sag, wrinkle, and crease. Some refer to the appearance of a festoon as a drape of skin that wrinkles and sits above the cheek bone. Lower eyelid surgery can correct festoons by removing this excess skin and restoring a smoother appearance to thenderneath the lower eyelid.

Eyelid Surgery For Malar Bags

Similar to festoons, malar bags develop beneath the lower eyelid and cause puffiness and undereye bags. The main difference between a festoon and a malar bag is that festoons form wrinkles, whereas malar bags are smooth, puffy mounds that rest below the lower eyelid. In cases of malar bags, blepharoplasty can correct this puffiness by removing excess skin that is causing a tired-looking appearance.

Blepharoplasty For Eyelid Ptosis

Eyelid ptosis is most commonly referred to as sagging eyelids. This lax skin can cause wrinkles and creases to form above the eyes. In severe cases, eyelid ptosis can even hinder vision when sagging skin begins to hang over the eyelashes. Eyelid surgery can restore your field of vision by removing excess skin and tissue from the upper eyelid with discreet incisions.

Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about eyelid surgery, as well as our other facial rejuvenation 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!

Improve Neck & Jaw Contours With A Neck Lift In New Jersey

POSTED ON TUESDAY, JUNE 01, 2021 AT 9:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

With age, you may notice that your jawline and neck begin to sag and lose definition.

Excess fat, lax skin, and prominent neck bands known as the platysmal bands can all contribute to an older-looking appearance and neck.

A neck lift can remove excess skin and fat while tightening the underlying muscles for a more contoured neck line.

Causes Of A Sagging Neck

Many patients begin to notice lax neck skin as one of the first signs of aging as they get older. The most common cause of neck sagging is aging. As you age, the skin of the neck begins to lose its elasticity and collagen, resulting in loose skin.

The loss of healthy fat deposits can cause the skin of the neck to become lax and the bands of the neck to become more noticeable.

Additionally, some patients struggle with excess fullness under the chin that can cause neck contours to become less defined.

Neck Lift Overview

Neck lift surgery can accentuate the jawline and facial profile by improving contours of the neck and lower face. A neck lift can remove excess fat, tissues, and skin from the neck and tighten the underlying muscles for a more defined appearance. 

Common Reasons For A Neck Lift:

  • Loose Skin
  • Reduced Skin Elasticity & Collagen
  • A Loss Of Healthy Fat Deposits
  • Prominent Platysmal Neck Bands
  • Excess Fullness Under The Chin

Neck Lift Surgery Benefits

A neck lift can remove excess skin from the neck while redraping the remaining skin for a more contoured, youthful-looking appearance. During a neck lift, the incisions are placed discretely below the chin. In many cases, a neck lift is combined with a facelift for the most youthful-looking facial rejuvenation results possible.

Benefits Of A Neck Lift:

  • Removes Excess Skin
  • Contours The Neck
  • Treats Excess Neck Fullness
  • Discrete Incisions
  • Often Combined With A Facelift
