Breast Implant Removal and Replacement - NJ Cosmetic Surgery

POSTED ON MONDAY, JUNE 27, 2022 AT 6:09 PM by Dr. Mokhtar 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
  •  An Infection
  •  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.

Aging Eyes – Surgical & Non-Surgical Fixes in NJ

POSTED ON MONDAY, APRIL 04, 2022 AT 3:37 PM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

It’s a known fact that the skin surrounding the eyes ages faster than the rest of the face. Due to the thinness of the skin, years of facial expressions, dryness, and sun damage, the appearance of your eyes may leave you feeling older than you really are.

Dr. Asaadi performs both surgical and non-surgical eye rejuvenation procedures for patients looking to achieve a more youthful-looking appearance.

Ultherapy®

Ultherapy® is a non-invasive procedure that is highly effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles surrounding the eye area. Through the distribution of sound wave technology, Ultherapy® stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, leaving the skin with a tightened effect.

Ultherapy® is an extremely safe and effective solution to combat aging around the eyes. This procedure requires no scalpels, stitches, or surgery, so patients can return to their daily lives immediately after receiving the treatment. Ultherapy® can be performed in-office and takes as little as 30-60 minutes depending on the patient.

Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty

During the non-surgical blepharoplasty procedure, Botox® is carefully injected around the eyes to fill areas where volume has been lost and restore the appearance of the eyes. Through this process, movement in the treated area becomes limited, decreasing the number of fine lines that may develop from facial expressions in the future.

Non-surgical blepharoplasty can be completed in less than 30 minutes and provides patients with results that can last years without requiring additional rejuvenation. Unlike surgical options, non-surgical blepharoplasty requires no downtime and results can be seen immediately.

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery, or surgical blepharoplasty, is a procedure in which excess skin and fat are removed from the patient’s eyelids in order to diminish the appearance of tiredness or loss of elasticity in this area. This procedure is successful in addressing crow’s feet, eyelid creases, hollowness around the eyes, and more. Dr. Asaadi is skilled in performing eyelid surgery on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, depending on patient preference.

During this procedure, Dr. Asaadi carefully tightens and repositions the skin in order to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes. The procedure typically takes 1-3 hours to complete and healing takes about 7-10 days.

Dr. Asaadi and his staff are on hand to answer any questions you may have concerning eye rejuvenation. 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 Breast Reduction – Benefits & What to Expect

POSTED ON TUESDAY, MARCH 01, 2022 AT 3:37 PM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

It’s often assumed that all women desire larger, more voluminous breasts. However, this isn’t the case.

Many women struggle with overly large breasts that lead to chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain, chafing, skin irritation, and overall discomfort. Not to mention, overly large breasts often hinder mobility and self-image.

Dr. Asaadi performs breast reduction procedures for patients looking to achieve more natural-looking or smaller breasts. Breast reduction can also be used to achieve better symmetry of the chest.

What is Breast Reduction Surgery?

Also known as reduction mammoplasty, breast reduction works by removing excess fat, breast tissue, and skin through small incisions.

Breast reduction surgery is often combined with a breast lift for a balanced and youthful-looking result.

Along with decreasing the breast size, breast reduction can also achieve a natural-looking shape to the chest.

 

Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery

The breast reduction procedure can offer patients life-changing benefits. Whether choosing to undergo breast reduction surgery for medical or cosmetic reasons, patient satisfaction is always at the forefront.

Check out some of the benefits of breast reduction surgery:

  •      A well-proportioned body
  •      More ease when exercising
  •      Alleviation of back / shoulder pain
  •      Better fitting clothing
  •      Improved hygiene

The Pedicle Technique

Breast reduction is often performed using the pedicle technique. This technique entails moving the nipple and the areola higher on the breast, attaching it to the pedicle tissue. By doing so, the functionality of the breast and sensitivity of the nipples remain intact.

Breast Reduction Surgery What to Expect

Before your breast reduction procedure, you can expect a thorough breast exam. This ensures the procedure is right for you, as well as what technique will work best and how much fat / tissue may need to be removed.

Following your breast reduction surgery, drains may be placed to promote proper healing. Additionally, your breasts will be wrapped and you will be required to wear a support garment to reduce discomfort.

Your breasts may be sore following the procedure and you may experience bruising, swelling, and discomfort. Recovery is known to be different for each patient.

You should avoid rigorous activity for at least 1 month following surgery. As the healing process progresses, you will notice a decrease in breast size.

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

Combining Breast Augmentation With A Breast Lift In NJ

POSTED ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 08, 2021 AT 9:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

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:

  • Sagging Breasts
  • Flattened, Elongated Breasts
  • Nipples That Point Downward
  • Nipples That Sit Below The Breast Crease
  • Asymmetrical Breasts
