Preventative Botox NJ - Prevent Wrinkles with Cosmetic Injectables

POSTED ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 01, 2022 AT 9:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

Cosmetic injectables not only reverse the signs of aging, but they can also prevent some of the most noticeable signs of aging from showing in the first place.

As a result of taking preventative action against aging, patients will experience fewer wrinkles and an overall smoother complexion as years pass.

It’s a common misconception that cosmetic injectables are highly noticeable, making those who have them appear “worked on” or “plastic.”

When performed properly by an experienced injector, these procedures will yield natural and youthful-looking results.

What are the Benefits of Preventative Injectables?

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Lessens movements that causes wrinkles
  • Combats genetic aging
  • Provides more subtle anti-aging results
  • Minimally invasive
  • Little-to-no downtime

How Can Botox Prevent Aging?

As fine lines and wrinkles can start to appear from repeated facial movements, starting injectables earlier can help to slow down the use of these muscles. But when do patients know when is the right time to start seeking cosmetic injections? Experts agree that when patients begin to see the first signs of facial folds or wrinkles it is reasonable to start considering injectables to prevent further aging. Our NJ plastic surgeon can meet with you to determine what is best for you and if you are an ideal candidate for preventative cosmetic injectables.

What to Expect Before Preventative Injectables

Before receiving any preventative injectables, Dr. Asaadi will meet with you for a consultation. During this process, he will evaluate any signs of aging you present and create a customized treatment plan to effectively address them and take steps towards preventing more from appearing.

What to Expect After Preventative Injectables

Depending on the type of injectable administered, patients will see results in the days following their procedure. Cosmetic injectables are minimally-invasive and require little-to-no downtime. Therefore, patients are able to return to their daily activities almost immediately following their visit.

What Signs of Aging Can Cosmetic Injectables Prevent?

  • Fine Lines
  • Forehead Wrinkles
  • Marionette Lines
  • Hollowed Cheeks
  • Crow’s Feet
  • Furrowed Brows

When Should I Start Preventative Injectables?

An ideal age to start preventative injectables doesn’t exist, because everyone ages differently depending on various factors such as genetics, skin type, sun exposure, etc. However, once faint lines begin to appear, it may be the right time to start preventative injectables. These faint lines are likely to later develop into deep wrinkles and preventative injectables are helpful in slowing this process. The age of patients seeking preventative injectables ranges from mid-to-late 20s to 30s.

What Options are Available for Preventative Injectables?

At Asaadi Plastic Surgery we offer a wide variety of cosmetic injectables to prevent the signs of aging. Dr. Asaadi will help determine which treatment is best for you based on your desired results and problem areas. Treatment options include Botox®, Juvaderm®, Perlane®, Belotero®, Voluma®, and Volbella®.

Dr. Asaadi and his staff are on hand to answer any questions you may have concerning cosmetic fillers. 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!

Facelift Without Downtime - NJ Non Invasive Facelift Options

POSTED ON FRIDAY, JULY 01, 2022 AT 9:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

The signs of facial aging are often the most noticeable, causing many patients to seek facial rejuvenation procedures in NJ. While many patients are great candidates for facelift surgery, non-invasive procedures can offer solutions to facial aging without having to go under the scalpel or take extended downtime.

These procedures provide long-lasting, natural-looking results and are ideal for patients looking to combat the signs of facial aging.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is effective in treating blemishes, damaged skin, and other signs of aging. Using precise laser technology, laser skin resurfacing can be tailored to fit the individual goals of each patient.

There are various laser options available to treat different facial concerns. Dr. Asaadi is able to help patients decide which option is best for achieving their desired results. Laser skin resurfacing can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are used to treat imperfections of the skin, often caused by aging, genetics, or excessive sun exposure. Through different levels of exfoliation, chemical peels can correct a wide variety of skin irregularities on the face.

There are three levels of chemical peels; light chemical peels, medium chemical peels, and deep chemical peels. Each peel targets a different layer of the skin and provides different results. Dr. Asaadi will help you decide which level of chemical peel is necessary to achieve your desired rejuvenation results.


Botox® is a cosmetic injectable that reduces the signs of facial aging. Botox® is effective in treating wrinkles that form around the mouth, eyes, and forehead due to repeated facial muscle contractions.

Botox® works by temporarily limiting the facial expressions that lead to fine lines and wrinkles. This procedure takes approximately 10-20 minutes to perform and can easily be tailored to fit the desired results of each patient.


Ultherapy® is a non-invasive skin-tightening treatment that is used to lift and tone facial tissue that has lost elasticity or begun to sag. Using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy® uses direct sound waves to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen.

Because of its minimally-invasive nature, Ultherapy® patients can return to their regular activities almost immediately after undergoing the procedure. Visible improvements can be noticed following your first treatment, but the results will continue to develop in the months to follow.

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 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!

Facelift & Neck Lift to Improve Signs of Aging

POSTED ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2019 AT 10:54 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

The loss of elasticity in the skin and youthful contours in the face are natural signs of aging, but certain factors such as sun damage and stress, can make these symptoms worse or make us feel as if our appearance doesn’t match how we feel internally.

Facelift surgery and neck lift surgery can improve visible signs of aging, creating a more youthful profile and taking years off your appearance.

What Is A Facelift?

A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to give a more youthful facial appearance.

During a facelift, incisions begin in the hairline at the temples and extend down around the ear, ending at the lower hairline. The facial skin is repositioned, and excess fat may be removed or redistributed to sculpt and improve facial contours.  

Dr. Asaadi will also ask his facelift patients to bring a photo of themselves when they were younger, so he can work with you achieve your desired results.

What Is A Neck Lift?

Facelift surgery is often paired with a neck lift, designed to address sagging jowls, loose neck skin, and pockets of fat around the neck and underneath the chin.

With a neck lift, an incision is made below the chin, and like facelift surgery, excess skin and fat is removed or repositioned. The platysma bands in the neck may also be corrected to create a smoother-looking neck.

Who Should Get Facelift/Neck Lift Surgery?

Ideal candidates for facelift and neck lift surgery are those looking to improve sagging around the face and neck. A facelift and neck lift can reduce facial wrinkles, skin laxity, and fine lines, creating long-lasting improvements to the facial profile. Although these procedures are not designed to stop the natural aging process, the results from facelift and neck lift surgery can be long-lasting when performed by a skilled plastic surgeon.

Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about facelift surgery or neck lift surgery, 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!

Facial Rejuvenation for a Youthful-Looking You This Summer!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 13, 2016 AT 11:23 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

Opting for facial rejuvenation during the winter months can result in a beautiful look come summertime. Many patients take advantage of the long winter by undergoing plastic surgery in preparation for the warmer months. Patients often choose to combine different facial rejuvenation techniques for youthful-looking, balanced results. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of facial surgery options at our New Jersey office, as well as at our new location in New York City! Below are some commonly-requested procedures that can achieve a younger-looking you.

Facelift & Necklift

Combining a facelift and necklift can ensure a youthful facial profile. Facelift surgery can improve the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and correcting loose or sagging facial skin. While facelift surgery can achieve a younger-looking appearance, an aged neck can continue to lead to an older, worn facial profile. Undergoing necklift surgery targets troublesome neck bands and lax neck skin to promote a contoured neckline. Your plastic surgeon can also tighten underlying muscles and lift loose skin to a more youthful position with a necklift.

Forehead Lift & Blepharoplasty

Patients undergoing a forehead lift can target drooping brows and excess forehead skin that results in an older-looking, furrowed appearance. Horizontal forehead lines can be improved by repositioning forehead tissues and removing loose skin. Patients can also opt for blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, to target the puffy under-eye bags or drooping eyelids. Correcting these conditions can improve the appearance of tired eyes for a refreshed look.

Facial Implants For The Cheeks, Jaw, & Chin

A variety of facial implants can be utilized to improve facial definition and symmetry. Correct gaunt cheek hollows and provide fullness to the midface with cheek implants, or add long-lasting contours to the jawline and chin with chin implants. These implants come in different sizes and shapes to complement your individual profile. Your plastic surgeon can help you determine what is best for your individual procedure goals and desires.


In some cases, simply correcting nose asymmetries can lead to an enhanced facial profile. Nose surgery can improve nostril size, smooth bumps around the nose bridge, and correct the angle of your nose. Rhinoplasty is also utilized to correct breathing issues, such as a deviated septum. Patients often choose rhinoplasty to correct nose imbalances, bringing the nose into balance with the rest of the facial profile.

Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about our facelift, necklift, forehead lift, blepharoplasty, facial implants, and rhinoplasty, as well as any of our other procedures.
