Are you looking for a way to achieve a firmer midsection? After pregnancy, weight gain or loss, there are some people who feel self-conscious about their excess skin or bulge on their stomach. However, there is a revolutionary tummy-tuck solution to help patients tighten stomach muscles to attain a smoother, flatter appearance and also help them restore their body confidence. This pioneering method is called CORE Abdominoplasty; it is performed on healthy individuals who have weakened abdominal muscles, or have excess skin.
What is CORE Abdominoplasty?
CORE Abdominoplasty is a surgery performed on individuals to help reposition or remove loose abdominal skin and to reduce excess fat. It is a form of body contouring that helps tighten stomach muscles for a toned midsection.
How It Is Performed
In traditional abdominoplasty, the patient lies on his or her back as the plastic surgeon performs the surgery. However, this might not produce satisfactory results because the stomach muscles are stretched, therefore, making it hard to detect any bulging. Dr. Asaadi recognized this problem and as a result, he has developed a method to help deliver optimal results for all his patients through the “Table Tilt Test.”
The Table Tilt Test firms the midsection by positioning patients at a 45 degree angle, or in an upright sitting position, during surgery to precisely identify and tighten any additional bulging. This method helps achieve a slimmer and a well-defined stomach and can create long-lasting, natural-looking results.
Patients will experience some pain and discomfort after surgery and will be given a pain pump to administer medication to help soothe away any uneasiness. Five to seven days after the surgery, the surface stitches will be removed.
Benefits of Core Abdominoplasty
Not only can CORE Abdominoplasty enhance an individual’s midsection, but it can also help relieve lower back pains and repair weak stomach muscles. This procedure can provide patients with a desirable and long-term improvement of their waistline.

Festoons and malar bags are genetic conditions that are often misdiagnosed and, as a result, not treated properly. These conditions present themselves as puffy bags and dark circles under the eyes. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, our New Jersey plastic surgeon has over 30 years of experience treating complex conditions like festoons and achieving natural-looking results. Dr. Asaadi has developed unique methods of diagnosing and treating the root causes of festoons and malar bags to restore youthful-looking eyelids.
Diagnosing Festoons & Malar Bags
Dr. Asaadi has developed the “Botox® Test” to properly identify the causes of your malar bags or festoons. During this test, a small amount of Botox® is injected into the area around your eye, known as the orbicularis oculi. If your festoons get worse after the injection, then the likely cause is muscle laxity. If there is no change in your festoons after the Botox® injection, then the likely cause is excess fat.
Treating Festoons & Malar Bags
Following the Botox® Test, Dr. Asaadi can properly treat the underlying causes of your festoons or malar bags. For festoons that are caused by muscle laxity, Dr. Asaadi can release the ligaments of the surrounding eye muscles and can remove part of the muscles, if necessary. For festoons caused by excess fat, Dr. Asaadi can surgically remove fat pockets beneath the skin.
While many plastic surgery practices simply try to treat festoons or malar bags using traditional blepharoplasty techniques, Dr. Asaadi addresses the root causes in order to correct these genetic conditions and achieve substantial results.
Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about malar bags and festoons, as well as our other facial rejuvenation procedures. Contact our New Jersey office at 973.731.7000, our New York office at 212.938.0158, or you may request an appointment online today!

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.
Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about microneedling with PRP, as well as our other non-invasive procedures. Contact our New Jersey office at 973.731.7000, our New York office at 212.938.0158, or you may request an appointment online today!

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.
