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

What Procedures Are In A Mommy Makeover In NJ

POSTED ON MONDAY, MAY 10, 2021 AT 9:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

While childbirth is a rewarding experience for mothers, it can take a drastic toll on their bodies.

A mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures performed to restore a mother’s curves back to what they were prior to giving birth.

Mommy makeover surgery is recommended for women who do not plan to have any more children and are looking to improve their figure.

Common Mommy Makeover Procedures

Some of the most common mommy makeover procedures include breast enhancement, liposuction, and a tummy tuck.

While these procedures are most commonly performed, a mommy makeover is fully customizable to the unique treatment goals of each patient.

During your consultation, Dr. Asaadi can help you create an individualized mommy makeover treatment that targets all areas of concern.

Breast Enhancement

In the majority of mommy makeovers, breast enhancement is typically performed. Breast enhancement surgery can include breast augmentation, breast reduction, or a breast lift. Some patients often choose to combine multiple breast enhancement procedures during their mommy makeover for the most youthful-looking results possible.

Common Breast Enhancement Procedures:

Liposuction

Liposuction is an effective way to remove stubborn fat deposits from the abdomen as well as the thighs, legs, arms, and more. With advancements in technology, there are many liposuction techniques that each have a unique advantage. Some of our most popular liposuction techniques include tumescent liposuction, super-wet liposuction, and VASER® LipoSelection.

Tumescent liposuction uses a small cannula underneath the skin to break fat deposits up and safely remove them from the body. Similar to tumescent liposuction, super-wet liposuction uses a small cannula to remove fat deposits. Super-wet liposuction can reduce overall procedure time as it uses less fluid during treatment. Finally, VASER® LipoSelection is a minimally invasive liposuction technique that uses ultrasound technology to remove fat and tighten loose skin.

Common Liposuction Procedures:

Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck surgery, which is also known as abdominoplasty, is a body contouring surgery that can remove excess fat and skin from the stomach while tightening the underlying abdominal muscles. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer traditional tummy tuck surgery and CORE Abdominoplasty℠.

Tummy tuck surgery can help achieve a slimmer waistline and is often combined with abdominal liposuction to remove stubborn fat deposits. CORE Abdominoplasty℠ is a revolutionary tummy tuck procedure where patients are positioned at a 45° angle during surgery. This allows Dr. Asaadi to further tighten weakened abdominal muscles.

Common Abdominoplasty Procedures:

Customize Your Mommy Makeover

While breast enhancement, liposuction, and tummy tuck procedures are commonly performed during a mommy makeover, patients can create their own treatment plan with the help of Dr. Asaadi. Additional procedures that patients may choose to undergo during a mommy makeover include a thigh lift, arm lift, and labiaplasty. Some patients also choose to combine non-invasive treatments or cosmetic injectables to further improve their mommy makeover results.

Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about a mommy makeover, as well as our other plastic surgery procedures. 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 Implant Replacement - Why Remove & Replace Breast Implants

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, APRIL 07, 2021 AT 9:02 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures. Breast augmentation uses breast implants to improve the shape, size, and symmetry of the breasts.

While breast implants are long-lasting, some patients may choose to undergo breast implant replacement. Breast implant replacement is performed to remove breast implants and exchange them for a new pair of breast implants.

When Should I Consider Breast Implant Replacement?

In the majority of cases, breast implant replacement is performed to correct minor cosmetic concerns a patient may have with their breast implants.

On the other hand, breast implant replacement is sometimes performed to treat a medical complication related to breast implants, such as capsular contracture or breast implant rupture.

While medical complications due to breast implants are possible, Dr. Asaadi has a 100% success rate of no capsular contracture or implant rupture throughout his career.

Exchange Silicone Breast Implants To Saline Breast Implants

At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we only offer saline breast implants. Saline implants provide more natural-looking results and have been proven to be a safer and more effective option. Many patients choose to remove their silicone breast implants and replace them with saline breast implants for the most natural-looking results possible.

Increase Breast Implant Size

Breast implant replacement can be performed if a patient desires larger breasts. During this procedure, the current breast implants are removed and replaced with larger breast implants to help patients achieve their treatment goals.

Decrease Breast Implant Size

In some cases, patients may decide they wish to have smaller breasts. Patients who have lost a signifigant amount of weight for example may feel that their current breast implants no longer complement their figure as well as they once have. To correct this, Dr. Asaadi can remove breast implants and replace them with smaller breast implants to better fit a patient’s figure.

Improve Results From A Previous Surgeon

Sometimes, patients are unsatisfied with their breast implant results from a previous plastic surgeon. Dr. Asaadi offers breast implant revision with breast implant replacement to correct any unnatural-looking results from a previous procedure.

Treat A Breast Implant Rupture

Breast implant replacement surgery is sometimes performed for medical concerns, such as treating a breast implant rupture. A breast implant may rupture or leak following a fall or accident. Damaged implants can be removed and replaced, or simply removed.

Correct Capsular Contracture

Capsular contracture is a medical condition where tissue around the breast implant tightens and becomes too firm. To treat capsular contracture, the breast implants must be removed completly or removed and replaced with new breast implants.

Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about breast implant replacement, as well as our other breast enhancement procedures. 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!

Microneedling & PRP New Jersey - Treat Wrinkles, Acne Scars, & More

POSTED ON MONDAY, MARCH 08, 2021 AT 8:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

As you age, your body begins to produce less elastin and collagen, which is what keeps your skin youthful and firm. With less elastin and collagen, wrinkles, fine lines, and creases may form and cause you to look older than you actually are. Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, combined with PRP can improve the texture and appearance of the skin for a radiant complexion.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that creates tiny holes within the skin to encourage the skin to heal. Your body responds to these tiny punctures by producing additional elastin and collagen fibers to promote healing. Over time, the elastin and collagen fibers can promote firmer, smoother-looking skin.

What Is PRP?

PRP, which is known as platelet rich plasma, is derived from the platelets naturally found in your blood. Platelets play an important role in your body’s response to healing injuries and can speed up your body’s tissue repair process. During a PRP treatment, blood is drawn as if you were undergoing a routine blood test. This sample is then placed in a centrifuge and separated into several components. PRP is then collected from this sample and used to assist your body’s natural healing mechanisms.

What Are The Benefits Of Microneedling With PRP?

Combining PRP with microneedling can further improve skin rejuvenation results following collagen induction therapy. Microneedling with PRP therapy allows for the platelet rich plasma to be better absorbed by your skin, encouraging your natural healing cycle.

Benefits Of Microneedling With PRP:

  • Restores skin elasticity
  • Increases collagen production
  • Reduces fine lines
  • Decreases blemishes, acne scars, & pore size
  • Reduces the appearance of stretch marks

Microneedling with PRP injections treats various signs of aging, including wrinkles, acne scars, pore size, and more.

Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about microneedling & PRP, as well as our other non-invasive 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!

Rejuvenate The Eyes With Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty In New Jersey

POSTED ON MONDAY, FEBRUARY 08, 2021 AT 2:45 PM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

As you age, wrinkles and hollows may form under the eyes, making you look older than you actually are. As your skin begins to lose firmness and elasticity, the eyes are often the first feature to show signs of aging. Non-surgical blepharoplasty can refresh the eyes for a younger-looking appearance.

What Is Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty?

Non-surgical blepharoplasty uses cosmetic fillers and Botox® to treat undereye wrinkles, depressions, and volume loss. Because non-surgical blepharoplasty does not require surgery, patients experience no downtime and are immediately able to get back to daily activities. Non-surgical blepharoplasty can achieve long-lasting and natural-looking eye rejuvenation results that can last years before touch up appointments are needed.

Compare non-surgical blepharoplasty and traditional eyelid surgery below:

Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty: Wrinkles and hollows are improved with cosmetic fillers and Botox® with no recovery period necessary. Results are long-lasting, but routine touch up appointments will be needed in the future.

Traditional Eyelid Surgery: Loose skin is surgically removed and repositioned with a recovery period of 1-2 weeks. Results are longer-lasting than non-surgical blepharoplasty.

What Can Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty Treat?

Non-surgical blepharoplasty can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and creases around the eyes. Additionally, non-surgical blepharoplasty can also effectively treat volume loss that contributes to depressions under the eyes. This hollowness can be corrected with non-surgical blepharoplasty for a fuller, more youthful appearance.

How Long Do Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty Results Last?

In the majority of cases, non-surgical blepharoplasty results can last years before additional treatments are needed. The amount of time between non-surgical blepharoplasty treatments varies on a patient to patient basis. Dr. Asaadi can help determine when touch up appointments are needed.

Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about non-surgical blepharoplasty, as well as our other facial rejuvenation procedures. 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!
