October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Many women who are fighting breast cancer often undergo a mastectomy or double mastectomy in order to treat existing cancer or prevent it from forming in high-risk cases.
During this procedure, all or part of the patient’s breasts may be removed.
While every woman approaches and experiences a mastectomy in their own way, it can sometimes leave a patient feeling mournful, insecure, or anxious.
At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, breast reconstruction surgery is offered to help restore the sense of femininity and sexuality that some women feel they lose after winning their courageous battle with breast cancer.
What is Breast Reconstruction Surgery?
Breast reconstruction surgery, also known as reconstruction mammoplasty, restores natural-looking breasts for women who have lost breast tissue as a result of a mastectomy, lumpectomy, or other medical procedures.
How is Breast Reconstruction Surgery Performed?
During breast reconstruction surgery, a tissue expander is used to create a pocket in which a saline breast implant can be inserted. After the implant is placed, Dr. Asaadi will use discreet sutures to close the incisions. In some cases, this will create a breast mound, so an implant may not be needed.
After the pocket is created, further symmetry and contours can be achieved through fat grafting. During this procedure, fat is harvested from other areas of the body, such as the back or abdomen, and transferred to the breasts.
What are the Benefits of Breast Reconstruction Surgery?
Restored size, shape, and appearance of the breasts
Can be performed immediately following mastectomy or lumpectomy
Restores a sense of confidence and femininity
What Can I Expect Before My Breast Reconstruction Surgery?
Before undergoing your breast reconstruction surgery, Dr. Asaadi will create a highly-personalized treatment plan to ensure you are receiving individualized care, as well as your desired results. Dr. Asaadi will provide you with pre-surgery instructions that are to be followed to ensure both the procedure and healing process go smoothly.
What Can I Expect After My Breast Reconstruction Surgery?
The healing process following breast reconstruction will look different for every patient. Depending on the extent of your procedure and your body’s rate of healing, recovery time will vary.
After your breast reconstruction surgery, you may experience some side effects including soreness, bruising, swelling, and inflammation. Stitches are usually removed 1-2 weeks post-surgery. Patients should avoid all strenuous activity until given the go-ahead by Dr. Asaadi.

Breast augmentation is a common cosmetic procedure performed to enhance breast size and shape. This surgery uses implants to increase breast size, providing patients with a fuller or more feminine-looking chest.
While breast implants remain a common plastic surgery procedure, many patients are choosing to remove their implants for a variety of reasons. Over the years, as our bodies change shape and size, some patients may feel their breast implants no longer suit their figure. In some cases, patients may seek breast explant surgery following capsular contracture or other complications. Silicone breast implants are also commonly removed to switch to saline implants, known to be safer and more natural-looking. Whether you’re seeking breast implant removal for medical or aesthetic concerns, Dr. Asaadi can perform breast implant removal and breast implant replacement based on your goals and desires.
What is Breast Implant Removal?
Breast implant removal is performed to extract breast implants from a previous breast augmentation. The procedure can also remove any residual scar tissue.
What is Breast Implant Replacement?
Breast implant replacement is performed in order to replace existing breast implants with ones that are safer or more suitable for the patient. Dr. Asaadi offers breast implant revision to remove old implants with implants that fit your anatomy. Dr. Asaadi only uses saline breast implants.
Reasons for Breast Implant Removal or Replacement
Unhappiness With Breast Size
Correct Implant Rupture or Leakage
Correct Results from a Previous Surgeon
Change in Physique
Accident or Injury to Breast Implant
What to Expect Before Breast Implant Removal or Replacement
Before your breast implant removal or replacement, Dr. Asaadi will perform a thorough examination to assess your current implants and create a plan that will fit your needs. During the procedure, anesthesia will be administered to ensure your comfort and safety throughout the process. The implants will then be removed from a small incision under the breast. New implants will be inserted through this same incision if the patient has chosen to replace them.
What to Expect After Breast Implant Removal or Replacement
The recovery process following a breast implant removal or replacement will vary depending on the patient, considering everyone heals at different rates. Swelling, discomfort, and bruising are common and will gradually subside as the healing process progresses. It is important that patients rest and allow their bodies proper time to mend.
Breast Implant Removal Paired with Breast Lift
Oftentimes, breast lift surgery is recommended following breast implant removal. After larger implants are removed, the breast tissue can be weakened and sagging. A breast lift can remove excess skin and reposition the nipples, creating a youthful-looking, perkier chest. The results of breast implant removal paired with breast lift appear natural and are long-lasting.

As you age, you may notice that your breasts are beginning to sag or droop. For women with larger breasts, this sagging may occur even earlier.
While many patients have considered breast augmentation with implants to improve the size and shape of their breasts, many patients may also benefit from a breast lift.
Combining breast augmentation with a breast lift can add volume to the breasts while lifting the breasts to a more youthful position.
What Is Breast Augmentation?
Breast implants can add natural-looking volume, shape, and definition the breasts. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we only use saline breast implants during breast augmentation.
What Is A Breast Lift?
During a breast lift, excess skin is removed from the breasts, and the breasts are lifted. Following breast lift, the nipples are also repositioned to a more youthful position for the most natural-looking results.
Combining Breast Augmentation & A Breast Lift
While there are many benefits from undergoing breast augmentation or a breast lift, combining these procedures can make even more of a difference in women who are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts. During a breast augmentation with breast lift, the breasts are simultaneously lifted and enlarged for a fuller, more youthful-looking appearance. Breast augmentation can help you achieve the size and shape breasts you desire while a breast lift helps you achieve the youthful placement of your breasts.
How Do I Know If I Need A Breast Augmentation With Lift?
It may be difficult for some women to know if they need breast augmentation, a breast lift, or both. If you are unhappy with the size, shape, and symmetry of your breasts, you may benefit from breast augmentation. On the other hand, women who are dissatisfied with sagging or drooping breasts may choose to undergo a breast lift. For women who are both unhappy with the size of their breasts as well as potential sagging, a breast augmentation with breast lift is often suggested.
Reasons For Breast Augmentation With Lift:
Flattened, Elongated Breasts
Nipples That Point Downward
Nipples That Sit Below The Breast Crease

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.

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.
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 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 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!
