POSTED ON TUESDAY, APRIL 02, 2024 AT 9:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

New season, new skin! Refresh your skin this spring and start the season off with your best face forward. Dr. Asaadi and his team can perform non-invasive treatments and utilize cosmetic fillers to help you achieve a rejuvenated and revitalized glow without undergoing any invasive surgeries or procedures.

Cosmetic Fillers

Cosmetic fillers can provide patients with a younger-looking appearance by combatting wrinkles, fine lines, and creases, adding volume to the facial profile. Cosmetic fillers are injected beneath the skin to add volume to areas of the face that may have become sunken or hollowed with age. Certain fillers are utilized to reshape the lips or cheeks, for a fuller, more plump appearance.

Learn more about our cosmetic fillers below!

· Juvéderm®: a dermal filler that can provide natural-looking, fuller facial features to reduce the appearance of aging. Juvéderm® can treat wrinkles, facial folds, fine lines, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, furrowed brows, thinning lips, hollowed cheeks, and crow’s feet.


· Belotero®: a non-invasive wrinkle treatment that can provide more natural, subtle results. Belotero® can help restore a younger-looking appearance by softening and lightening folds, facial lines, and creases, while volumizing hollowed under eyes.

· Voluma®: a cosmetic injectable that lifts and shapes the cheeks. Voluma® is injected into the deepest layers of the skin and muscle to combat a loss of volume due to aging, and contour hollowed cheeks. Voluma® is a long-lasting solution for enhancing your facial profile.

· Volbella®: a soft, gel consistency cosmetic injectable designed to add volume to the lips and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Volbella® can redefine and reshape the lips for a more youthful look. Volbella® can treat fine lines, wrinkles, and folds created from the repeated movements from smiling, frowning, or laughing over time.

Non-Invasive Treatments

Non-invasive treatments are non-surgical procedures that are designed to rejuvenate and refresh your appearance without undergoing lengthy surgeries. These treatment options are smaller procedures that can provide natural-looking results and achieve an enhanced overall appearance without extensive downtime.

· Microneedling with PRP: a skin care treatment that can stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin to improve skin tone and maintain a healthy, glowing complexion. Microneedling with PRP (platelet rich plasma) mainly targets the face, neck, and arms and can provide long-lasting, regenerative results.

· Hydrafacial®: a non-invasive dermabrasion skin resurfacing method that can improve fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, enlarged pores, lack of elasticity, and more. Hydrafacial® is a combination of cleansing, extracting, and hydrating to soothe, moisturize, and rejuvenate the skin for a radiant, glowing complexion.

· Skin Care Facials and Peels: at Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of skin care facials and masks that can achieve each patient’s desired goals. Some of our masks and peels include: the Bespoke facial, Casmara Facial Masks, Skinceuticals® MicroPeel, Skinceuticals®

The Eyes of March: Surgical & Non-Surgical Eyelid Surgery

POSTED ON FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 2024 AT 9:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

Your eyes are often one of the first features people may notice about your face. As the natural course of aging occurs, your eyes can begin to make you appear older than you actually are, due to sagging skin, undereye bags, puffiness, and more. Drooping eyelids, excess skin, festoons, and fine lines are all common concerns regarding the appearance of the eyes. The condition of puffiness and excess skin around the eyes can also interfere with your ability to see clearly. These concerns can be combatted with a variety of surgical and non-surgical eyelid treatments and plastic surgery. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer traditional Blepharoplasty, Festoon surgery, Upneeq®, and Young eye rejuvenation as treatment options for the eyes. Learn more about our eye procedures below!


Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a procedure that can be performed on the upper or lower eyelids. Upper eyelid surgery can treat sagging and drooping eyelids due to excess skin, fat, and tissue. Lower eyelid surgery can be performed to treat the appearance of undereye bags and wrinkles. Eyelid surgery can restore a youthful and refreshed appearance around the eyes.

Festoon Surgery

Festoons are the puffy bags that sit under the eye and above the cheeks, and are a very prominent sign of facial aging. Festoons can be caused by excess fat or lax muscles beneath the skin. Festoon surgery can improve the appearance of festoons by removing the excess fat from the lower eyelids stabilizing the lax muscles.


Upneeq® is a non-surgical treatment that can be used to combat drooping eyelids. Drooping eyelids, also known as ptosis, can obstruct your vision and affect your appearance as well. Upneeq® is a daily eye drop that lifts the eyelids, improves vision, and does not require surgery or extensive recovery periods. Upneeq® can achieve refreshed eyes and clear vision that starts working with the first treatment.

Young Eye Rejuvenation

Young eye rejuvenation is the non-surgical blepharoplasty technique you’ll find at Asaadi Plastic Surgery. Young eye rejuvenation utilizes Botox® injections and cosmetic fillers to carefully correct the appearance of crow’s feet, fine lines, and wrinkles around the eye. This technique allows for the upper and lower eyelids to be treated without surgery, and can immediately lift the eyes for a brighter, more refreshed appearance and youthful-looking eyes.


Dr. Asaadi and our staff are happy to answer any questions you may have about surgical and nonsurgical eyelid rejuvenation, as well as any of our other 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!

Body Contouring NJ – Preparing for Summer

POSTED ON THURSDAY, JANUARY 04, 2024 AT 9:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

During the long winter months, we stay indoors and out of the cold, and we bundle up to keep ourselves warm and unexposed to the elements. These winter months are an ideal time to take advantage of undergoing body contouring procedures, giving you plenty of recovery time before the summer approaches.

At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of body contouring procedures that can help treat the unwanted, stubborn pockets of fat and excess skin that can be challenging to get rid of, even when exercise and healthy lifestyle choices are being made. Body contouring can enhance the natural contours of the body and achieve a more defined figure.

Common body contouring procedures include tummy tuck surgery, liposuction, MAsterTuck℠, and CORE Abdominoplasty℠. These procedures can achieve a more sculpted and toned figure and provide a natural-looking transformation to the patient’s current physique. Learn more about these body contouring procedures that can help you fulfill your desired body sculpting goals!


Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, is most commonly performed following pregnancy or significant weight loss to remove loose, sagging skin from the abdomen and tighten weakened abdominal muscles. The appearance of stretch marks, excess fat, and the contours of the body can be improved with tummy tuck surgery, resulting in a slimmer waistline.


Liposuction can enhance the contours of the body through techniques that target and eliminate unwanted fat along the midsection, arms, thighs, face, neck, and more. Liposuction can improve the proportions of your body profile and produce natural-looking results, leading to a more sculpted and toned figure. There are multiple liposuction techniques, including VASER® LipoSelection, super-wet liposuction, and more. Dr. Asaadi can help determine which type of liposuction is right for you.


MAsterTuck℠ is a liposuction technique that can sculpt the body by removing excess fat around the midsection to achieve natural-looking results. Patented and solely performed by Dr. Asaadi, this procedure targets fat deposits around the abdomen, flanks, and back. MAsterTuck℠ differs from traditional liposuction, as it does not leave lax skin following the procedure, but rather tightens the skin for a firmer overall appearance.

CORE Abdominoplasty℠

CORE Abdominoplasty℠ is performed by positioning patients at a 45-degree angle to allow Dr. Asaadi to discover where the abdominal muscles have weakened and where the skin has become lax, leading to bulging. Once the problem areas are identified, the CORE Abdominoplasty℠ procedure can provide patients with tighter, more defined abdominal muscles, as well as smoother skin and a slimmer silhouette.


Dr. Asaadi and his staff are on hand to answer any questions you may have concerning body contouring 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 Laser Skin Resurfacing: A Refreshed Look for the New Year

POSTED ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 04, 2023 AT 9:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

With a new year comes new changes, and for many people their New Year’s resolutions involve goals to attain their desired appearance. So, why not face the new year with a refreshed and rejuvenated look? At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer numerous facial rejuvenation treatments that contribute to restoring youthful, glowing skin and can provide patients with more confidence as they enter the new year.

One way to bring back radiance to the skin is through laser skin resurfacing. This is a facial rejuvenation procedure and blemish treatment that reduces cosmetic irregularities such as damaged skin, acne, and signs of aging. As you begin to age, wrinkles, folds, age spots, and fine lines will start to appear. Repairing your skin and reducing the signs of aging is possible with laser skin resurfacing.

Laser skin resurfacing uses laser beam technology to precisely target problem areas. The laser is scientifically designed to repair damaged skin while preserving as much healthy skin and tissue as possible. During the procedure, protective eye goggles are worn to shield the eyes from the laser.


There are several different laser treatments available today that are chosen based on the individual needs and preferred outcome for each patient. Laser skin resurfacing may utilize ablative lasers, non-ablative lasers, fractional lasers, and the Fraxel CO2 Pixel Perfect™ laser, and Intense Pulsed Light Treatment. A combination of these laser types can be used to effectively treat skin concerns. Laser treatments can also be performed at various depths, which is dependent on the skin imperfections being repaired.

  • Ablative Lasers: Removes damaged tissue and skin layers that cause discoloration, blemishes, or irregularities and are often used in cases of skin-firming, wrinkle treatment, and scar reduction.
  • Non-Ablative Lasers: Breaks down cosmetic blemishes on the surface of the skin and is often used for treating fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Fractional Lasers: Reach the deepest layers of the skin to remove damaged cells and promote growth of healthy tissue and is used to treat deep folds, severe wrinkles, scarring, discoloration, and liver spots.
  • Fraxel CO2 Pixel Perfect™ Laser: Treats the deepest layers of skin without harming healthy cells, restarts your body’s natural collagen production, generating new, healthy skin cells. This laser results in a high success rate and quick recovery period.
  • Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment: Improve the appearance of skin irregularities by enhancing tone and texture of skin, encourage collagen production, and is used to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, pigmentation issues, birthmarks, and more without extensive recovery time.

Laser skin resurfacing is performed for moderate-to-severe cosmetic blemishes and irregularities. Dr. Asaadi will help to achieve facial rejuvenation results by determining which laser would be best. The recovery from laser skin resurfacing is dependent on which laser was used and at what depth. Common side effects from this procedure include minor itching, irritation, and discomfort which fade in the days following the treatment. The skin may be red and sensitive for the first few weeks, and sun exposure should be avoided.

Dr. Asaadi and his staff are on hand to answer any questions you may have regarding laser skin resurfacing for the new year. 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!
