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!

Fast, Fabulous Fixes in February

POSTED ON TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 01, 2022 AT 9:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

It’s a common misconception that any kind of transformative plastic surgery must entail a lengthy procedure and extended downtime to follow. However, there are a wide variety of non-surgical options to have you looking and feeling your best without having to go under the scalpel.

Dr. Asaadi performs non-invasive procedures that are designed for patients seeking a younger-looking appearance without the long recovery period or risks associated with traditional plastic surgery. These treatments are ideal for achieving natural-looking and long-lasting results. 

Ultheraphy® 

Ultherapy® is a non-surgical procedure that provides skin tightening effects to the face and neck by using innovative ultrasound technology to promote collagen production. Ultheraphy® can be used to correct fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and sagging skin.

Ultherapy® is performed in-office and takes as little as 30-60 minutes to complete. Patients are able to return home immediately after their procedure and can quickly return to their lives as normal.

Kybella®

Kybella® injections can diminish the appearance of a double chin. As we age, excess skin and fat start to accumulate around the chin and neck, causing us to look older than we feel. With Kybella®, patients can enjoy a sculpted jawline without having to undergo surgery.

Kybella® contains deoxycholic acid, which is naturally produced in the human body. Once injected, Kybella® works quickly to destroy fat cells in the chin and neck, leaving patients with youthful contours. Kybella® injections are administered in-office and can take 10-15 minutes to complete.

Hydrafacial MD®

HydraFacial MD® is a multi-step procedure that combines the skin resurfacing powers of cleansing, extraction, and hydration to leave patients with smoother, youthful, and restored skin.

HydraFacial MD® can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, and more. Results can be noticed immediately following the treatment. HydraFacial MD® opens the pores to allow for impurities to be removed and healing treatments to be delivered to the lower layers of the skin. The procedure is non-invasive and provides long-lasting improvements to skin texture.

Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty

Non-surgical blepharoplasty treats crow’s feet, fine lines, and hollowness surrounding the eyes. With a combination of cosmetic fillers, patients can enjoy younger-looking eyes without the downtime associated with traditional eyelid surgery.

After receiving non-surgical blepharoplasty, patients can immediately return to work and daily activities. The results often last for years before and touch-ups are necessary.

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!

Face The New Year Younger – NJ Facial Rejuvenation for the New Year

POSTED ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 04, 2022 AT 9:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

With the new year comes a fresh start. Begin 2022 as the best version of yourself with the help of facial rejuvenation in NJ!

At Asaadi Plastic Surgery we offer a wide range of facial rejuvenation treatments to combat the signs of aging while providing natural-looking results! Check out some of our most popular facial rejuvenation procedures below.

Facelift

Facelift surgery can treat deep creases, sagging skin, and the formation of jowls that may come with age, stress, or sun exposure.

Facelift surgery can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as a neck lift, rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty, or brow lift surgery for additional improvements to the facial profile.

After the facelift procedure, patients may experience slight discomfort, as well as some bruising and swelling. However, facelift surgery achieves extremely long-lasting results.

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a procedure effective in rejuvenating the areas above and below the eyes. Eyelid surgery can also address abnormalities caused by genetic conditions such as malar mounds and festoons

During the procedure, Dr. Asaadi tightens and repositions each layer of the eyelid to provide optimal results.

Nose Surgery

Nose surgery, otherwise known as rhinoplasty, reshapes the nose, improve size, and corrects asymmetries. Patients may also undergo a rhinoplasty to correct functionality issues of the nose, such as a deviated septum that may cause difficulty breathing.

Revision rhinoplasty is also available for patients who have undergone a previous nose surgery and were dissatisfied with their results.

Fat Transfer

Fat transfer injections are an option for patients looking to fill in sunken cheekbones, fine lines and wrinkles, or restore overall volume to the facial structure. Facial fat grafting uses fat cells harvested from elsewhere on the body, typically the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs,  to restore a youthful-looking appearance.

Fat transfer injections add natural volume to the face and the results are extremely long-lasting. Dr. Asaadi suggests plenty of rest in the initial days of recovery to ease any swelling or bruising surrounding the injection sites, but patients can normal return to their daily lives in a few short days.

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!

Jumpstart Your New Year’s Resolution With NJ Body Contouring

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

Why wait until the New Year for a new you? At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of body contouring procedures to help jumpstart your New Year’s resolution of getting beach body ready.

Body contouring treatments can remove fat, sculpt the body, and improve contours with long-lasting and natural-looking results. Check out some of our most popular body sculpting procedures below.

Liposuction

Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that can remove unwanted fat deposits with precision to sculpt the body. Some of the most popular liposuction treatment areas include the abdomen, arms, thighs, legs, flanks, and back.

At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer various liposuction techniques, including tumescent liposuction, super-wet liposuction, and VASER® LipoSelection.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that can remove excess fat and skin from the midsection.

Additionally, a tummy tuck can tighten the underlying abdominal muscles that may weaken as a results of weight gain or childbirth. Tummy tuck surgery can achieve a slimmer, more contoured waistline by removing excess fat and repositioning the abdominal muscles closer together.

CORE Abdominoplasty℠

CORE Abdominoplasty℠ is a revolutionary tummy tuck technique created and performed by Dr. Asaadi. CORE Abdominoplasty℠ is performed similar to a traditional tummy tuck except that the patient is placed at a 45° angle during surgery, which allows for detection of additional abdominal bulging and further tightening of the muscle layers.

MAsterTuck℠

MAsterTuck℠ is a truncal liposuction technique that is patented and performed solely by Dr. Asaadi. Similar to liposuction, MAsterTuck℠ can remove excess fat deposits from the abdomen, flanks, and back. The difference is that MAsterTuck℠ simultaneously performs skin tightening for a more contoured physique. MAsterTuck℠ removes stubborn fat without the risk of loose, sagging skin, as it uses ultrasound energy to promote skin retraction.

Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about body contouring, as well as our other plastic surgery 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!
