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

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℠

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.

VASER® LipoSelection

Body Contouring with VASER® LipoSelection

POSTED ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 03, 2023 AT 9:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

Removing and eliminating unwanted fat from different areas of the body is one of the most sought-after body contouring and plastic surgery procedures. Innovative plastic surgery advancements over the years have led to the creation of a variety of different techniques and methods to perform liposuction. These new methods are suited to better fit the needs of each patient and their desired goals. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer multiple methods of liposuction, including VASER® LipoSelection.

VASER® LipoSelection is a specialized liposuction technique that removes fat and tightens skin in one procedure. The purpose of this procedure is to target unwanted fat and extract it, while also encouraging skin retraction for a gradual firming effect. This method of liposuction is minimally invasive and uses ultrasound technology to generate and transmit sound energy to underlying fat cells. As the fat cells are exposed to the ultrasound energy, it is gradually liquefied. The fat cells are then gently removed to ensure skin retraction and smoothness in the targeted areas. This procedure is ideal for patients who are interested in tackling persistent fat pockets in a range of different areas of the body. 

Treatment areas for VASER® LipoSelection include the abdomen, thighs, hips, legs, arms, and neck. Other and more specific areas that can be targeted include the knees, flanks, upper arms, face, inner thighs, chin, outer thighs, calves, breasts, and ankles. The benefits of the VASER® method include predictable results, fast recovery, minimal pain and bruising, and it is gentle so it can be applied to delicate areas of the face and body.

What is the difference between VASER® LipoSelection and Traditional Liposuction results?

VASER® Liposuction is able to selectively target and extract unwanted fat from precise areas. This technique leaves the connective tissue and nerves intact, resulting in minimal discomfort and faster recovery than traditional liposuction. The VASER® method has a shorter procedure time and requires less downtime post procedure as well.

Benefits of ultrasound technology leave patients with beautifully contoured results and skin tightening benefits. Following the VASER® procedure, patients can expect long-lasting body sculpting results. This method is designed to restore and firm the natural-looking contours of your body.

 

Dr. Asaadi and his staff are more than happy to answer any questions concerning VASER® LipoSelection or other body contouring 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!

Mommy Makeovers NJ - Frequently Asked Questions

POSTED ON MONDAY, JULY 03, 2023 AT 9:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

A mommy makeover combines a variety of surgical procedures to address some of the common physical changes following pregnancy. Often after giving birth, the breasts begin to sag or deflate, and the abdomen holds excess skin, stretch marks, and bulging. This procedure is highly customized to suit the needs, goals, and desires of each individual patient.

Mommy makeover combinations may include breast enhancement, liposuction, tummy tuck, and vaginal rejuvenation.

Am I a good candidate for a mommy makeover?

If you have developed physical changes in your body following pregnancy and you are in overall good health, then you may be an ideal candidate for mommy makeover. Other important factors also include if you are finished having children, and if you are currently breastfeeding.

Each mommy makeover is uniquely tailored for each patient's health concerns and goals. These factors are important when determining what areas of the body to target and what combination of procedures to use for your mommy makeover.

Prior to scheduling the procedure, a physical examination will be conducted to discuss goals, concerns, and more to properly decide what combination of procedures to perform.

Mommy makeover targets:

  • Breasts that have deflated due to breast feeding or weight loss
  • Stretch marks
  • Pockets of fat
  • Excess skin
  • Weakened or separated abdominal muscles

How many treatments does mommy makeover include?

One of the benefits of the mommy makeover is that multiple procedures can be combined and performed at once. Additional treatments following the initial mommy makeover is dependent on what procedures were originally performed. Factors such as overall health and patient goals will be taken into account prior to the mommy makeover procedure.

How soon after having children should I consider a mommy makeover?

It is preferred that you have returned to your pre-pregnancy weight, are done having kids, and it is at least three to six months following breastfeeding that you choose to undergo a mommy makeover.

What will my recovery be like?

The recovery process and timeline will vary from patient to patient depending on which procedures were performed. Downtime can range between two to six weeks, and is discussed during the consultation appointment.

Dr. Asaadi and our staff are happy to answer any questions you may have about 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!

Eliminate Unwanted Fat - Liposuction in NJ

POSTED ON MONDAY, AUGUST 01, 2022 AT 10:03 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

Many patients struggle with stubborn fat that is resistant to routine diet and exercise. Liposuction is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures because of its ability to precisely target and remove unwanted pockets of fat.

There are a variety of liposuction techniques available and Dr. Asaadi will help you decide what’s right for you based on your desired results.

Lipo is often paired with other body contouring techniques to create beautifully-contoured results.

Tumescent Liposuction

Tumescent liposuction can be used to treat most body parts, including the stomach, hips, buttocks, thighs, calves, back, and more.

During the procedure, a specialized numbing solution is injected into the treatment area(s). A cannula is then inserted through a small incision to break up fat cells and gently suction them from the body.

Tumescent liposuction minimizes bruising and swelling post-procedure.

 

Super-Wet Liposuction                               

During super-wet liposuction, a small amount of anesthetic solution is injected into the treatment area(s), resulting in an overall shorter procedure. Following this preparation, a small cannula is inserted to perform the fat removal. Super-wet liposuction offers patients enhanced contours for a slimmer-looking figure.

VASER Liposuction

VASER liposuction utilizes ultrasound technology to break up and remove unwanted fat cells and uses either general or local anesthesia. During this liposuction procedure, a probe is inserted under the skin through a tiny incision to deliver ultrasound energy to the targeted areas.

VASER liposuction also exposes the underlying layers of the skin to heat, promoting collagen production, and tightening the skin for the most sculpted and youthful-looking results.

What to Expect Before Liposuction

If you’re considering undergoing liposuction in NJ, Dr. Asaadi will meet with you to discuss your goals and confirm that you’re an ideal candidate for the procedure. 

Following your consultation, you will receive specialized pre-care instructions to prepare for your liposuction.

What to Expect After Liposuction

Following lipo, you may experience mild bruising and swelling. Some patients may require a small drainage tube to aid in the healing process, but this may be removed within the first few weeks.

Healing times will vary by patient. However, most are able to return to work or their daily routines 1-2 weeks following their liposuction procedure. Patients should take this time to rest and avoid any strenuous activities.

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