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!

Jumpstart Your New Year’s Resolution With NJ Body Contouring

POSTED ON TUESDAY, DECEMBER 07, 2021 AT 9:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

Why wait until the New Year for a new you? At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of body contouring procedures to help jumpstart your New Year’s resolution of getting beach body ready.

Body contouring treatments can remove fat, sculpt the body, and improve contours with long-lasting and natural-looking results. Check out some of our most popular body sculpting procedures below.

Liposuction

Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that can remove unwanted fat deposits with precision to sculpt the body. Some of the most popular liposuction treatment areas include the abdomen, arms, thighs, legs, flanks, and back.

At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer various liposuction techniques, including tumescent liposuction, super-wet liposuction, and VASER® LipoSelection.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that can remove excess fat and skin from the midsection.

Additionally, a tummy tuck can tighten the underlying abdominal muscles that may weaken as a results of weight gain or childbirth. Tummy tuck surgery can achieve a slimmer, more contoured waistline by removing excess fat and repositioning the abdominal muscles closer together.

CORE Abdominoplasty℠

CORE Abdominoplasty℠ is a revolutionary tummy tuck technique created and performed by Dr. Asaadi. CORE Abdominoplasty℠ is performed similar to a traditional tummy tuck except that the patient is placed at a 45° angle during surgery, which allows for detection of additional abdominal bulging and further tightening of the muscle layers.

MAsterTuck℠

MAsterTuck℠ is a truncal liposuction technique that is patented and performed solely by Dr. Asaadi. Similar to liposuction, MAsterTuck℠ can remove excess fat deposits from the abdomen, flanks, and back. The difference is that MAsterTuck℠ simultaneously performs skin tightening for a more contoured physique. MAsterTuck℠ removes stubborn fat without the risk of loose, sagging skin, as it uses ultrasound energy to promote skin retraction.

Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about body contouring, as well as our other plastic surgery 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!

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!

New Year, New Body – Liposuction Options for A Slimmer, Firmer-Looking Physique

POSTED ON THURSDAY, DECEMBER 10, 2020 AT 11:25 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

When’s the best time to undergo liposuction? Many patients choose the winter months to slim down and shape up problem areas such as the midsection, back, thighs, and arms. Opting for liposuction in the winter allows patients to easily cover up and take some time off to recover before heading into the new year with a new body. Our New Jersey plastic surgeon offers Vaser® LipoSelection and MAsterTuck℠ – two innovative liposuction techniques that can treat unwanted fat while also firming loose skin.

Vaser® LipoSelection

Vaser® LipoSelection is a minimally invasive liposuction procedure that can remove stubborn fat with less downtime than traditional lipo surgery. Vaser® liposuction uses ultrasound energy to liquefy excess fat cells without harming the surrounding tissues. Once the fat is liquefied, it is then suctioned out of the body. The Vaser® lipo system can target unwanted fat from multiple areas of the body, including the neck, breasts, arms, back, midsection, flanks, thighs, and legs.

In addition to fat removal, Vaser® LipoSelection can also achieve a skin tightening effect. The ultrasound energy emitted from the Vaser® device can encourage collagen and elastin production beneath the skin, which can result in a firmer, smoother-looking skin texture.

MAsterTuck℠

MAsterTuck℠ is a revolutionary liposuction procedure patented and performed solely by Dr. Asaadi. MAsterTuck℠ can transform your physique by sculpting the body for long-lasting results. MAsterTuck℠ uses the Vaser® LipoSelection system to remove stubborn fat and tighten skin.

What makes MAsterTuck℠ different from other liposuction techniques is its ability to deliver substantial skin retraction without the need for excision, resulting in a firmer, smoother contour. Dr. Asaadi uses MAsterTuck℠ to target the abdomen, flanks, and lower back.

Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about liposuction, Vaser® LipoSelection, and MAsterTuck℠, as well as our other 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!

Add Volume & Slim Unwanted Fat With Fat Transfer In NJ

POSTED ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2020 AT 3:42 PM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

Fat transfer is an innovative procedure that can simultaneously volumize your profile while also removing stubborn fat from problem areas. Fat transfer can achieve the benefits of liposuction in addition to reducing the signs of aging, including sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer facial fat transfer to revitalize your facial profile and natural breast augmentation to enhance breast volume using your body’s natural fat cells. Learn more about these fat grafting procedures below.

Fat Transfer Overview

Fat transfer is a two part procedure that can slim down unwanted fat while adding natural-looking volume. During fat grafting, your natural fat cells are harvested via liposuction from a donor area (usually the buttocks, thighs, or abdomen). These fat cells are then taken and injected into the desired target area(s). Fat transfer injections can target the upper, mid, and lower face to improve facial volume. Additionally, fat transfer can add shape and fullness to your breasts.

Facial Fat Transfer

Facial fat transfer can revitalize your profile and add youthfulness to your expression without the downtime associated with traditional facial surgery. Fat transfer can smooth forehead furrows and wrinkles around the eyes, volumize hollow cheeks, and fill in fine lines around the mouth.

Many patients see pronounced results with facial fat transfer alone. In some cases, fat transfer can also be combined with a facelift to further accentuate results. During this combination procedure, excess skin is removed and repositioned to correct facial laxity. Your natural fat cells are then injected to add natural-looking volume to areas that have lost definition.

Breast Fat Transfer

Breast fat transfer, also known as natural breast augmentation, can achieve fuller, shapelier breasts without the need for breast implants. Excess fat is taken from a donor area and injected into the breasts to add size and enhance breast contours. Breast fat transfer requires less recovery time than breast implant surgery and may be an ideal option for patients who prefer a natural alternative to implants.

Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about fat transfer, 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!
