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!

Since 1985, the month of October has been Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Each year, there are about 264,000 cases of breast cancer diagnosed in women. Many women who are diagnosed and fighting their battles with breast cancer undergo a mastectomy, double mastectomy, or another form of surgery to remove part of or all of their breasts. These surgeries can cause some women to feel self-conscious and uncomfortable with their appearance. Along with these feelings, some women also feel a lack or lost sense of femininity and sexuality. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer breast reconstruction, which is also referred to as reconstruction mammoplasty.
Breast reconstruction rebuilds the breasts to closely match the appearance, shape, and size of a patient’s breasts prior to their surgery. This procedure is ideal for women who have had cancer treatments, lumpectomy, or another surgery where some or all breast tissue was removed. Saline breast implants are used for breast reconstruction and are made of a salt-water solution. These implants create symmetrical, full breasts to provide the patient with the most natural-looking results possible.
Aside from implants, a natural breast transfer can also be performed as a reconstruction technique. This surgery is performed by using a tissue expander to create a pocket in the patient’s breast for the implant. In some cases, a breast mound can form, and no breast implants are needed.
The Benefits of Breast Reconstruction
Restores the shape, size, and appearance of breasts after mastectomy or lumpectomy
Can often be performed immediately following a lumpectomy
Restores confidence and sense of femininity
What to Expect Before Surgery

What to Expect After Surgery

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can restore the appearance of drooping, tired eyes through the removal of excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids. One of the most common concerns patients seeking eyelid surgery express is severe undereye bags. Often misdiagnosed, these undereye bags may actually be what is known as festoons, or malar bags. Patients with sagging skin or puffiness underneath the eyes are candidates for this procedure. Eyelid surgery achieves natural, younger-looking results.
Festoons are a genetic condition that result in puffiness below the lower eyelid and above the cheeks and can also appear as puffy eye bags. They are the result of either fat deposits around the eyes or muscle laxity. This causes the skin and face to appear tired and older-looking.
Treating and Diagnosing Festoons
The two main causes for festoons are excess fat and muscle laxity, and it is important to correctly diagnose a patient to create the proper treatment plan to remove festoons. Festoons can be particularly difficult to diagnose, which is why Dr. Asaadi has pioneered the Botox® Test for diagnosing and treatment.
Through the Botox® Test, a small amount of Botox is injected into the area around the eye. If the festoons become worse, the root cause is muscle laxity. This can be treated through releasing ligaments of surrounding eye muscles to reduce puffiness. If there is no change after the injection, the root cause is excess fat. This can be treated by surgically removing the fat deposits.
Why Choose Dr. Asaadi to Remove Festoons?
Dr. Asaadi specializes in diagnosing and treating festoons. Blepharoplasty is considered one of the most difficult plastic surgery procedures, and it requires expertise, attention to detail, and a highly skilled surgeon to perform correctly. If too much fat is removed from the lower eye, it can create a hollow look. Dr. Asaadi utilizes a unique method of correcting hollowness and puffiness, resulting in a youthful, fuller, and refreshed appearance.
Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about eyelid surgery and festoon treatment. Contact our New Jersey office at 973.731.7000, our New York office at 212.938.0158, or you may request an appointment online today!

Breast implant replacement is performed to remove current breast implants and replace them with new implants. This procedure is available at Asaadi Plastic Surgery to remove, replace, and reposition the breast implants and provide the patient with their desired appearance. A common reason for replacing breast implants is to reposition the implants to better fit your body’s physique. Reasons to consider this procedure, and the right time for breast implant replacement can be based on cosmetic factors and medical concerns.
When to Replace Breast Implants
The time to replace breast implants can vary from patient to patient. Age, health, personal changes or preferences, and the expertise of your surgeon can determine how often breast implants need to be replaced. Choosing a skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon is essential for any surgery. Important details your surgeon should consider when preforming breast implant surgery includes skin laxity, height, and body composition of their patient. If an unskilled surgeon does not take these factors into consideration, the results may look less natural. These factors can greatly impact the results of breast implant procedures.
Cosmetic Reasons to Remove Breast Implants
A patient may choose to replace their implants because they are unhappy with the current size or shape and want to either increase or decrease the size of their implants.
Some patients may gain or lose weight, changing the proportions of the body which alters the look of the implants. New implants can better fit a patient’s body physique.
If a patient is unhappy with the results of their implants from another surgeon. This can occur due to the previous doctor having incorrect knowledge of the patient’s anatomy. Skin laxity, height, and body composition of the patient are important to consider when choosing the size and shape of breast implants.
Exchanging silicone implants to saline implants, which are known to be safer and more natural-looking than silicone implants. Dr. Asaadi only uses saline breast implants.
Medical Reasons to Remove Breast Implants
If the patient is involved in an accident or experience trauma, the implant may leak or rupture. Removal and replacement would be required in this scenario.
The possibility of infection or capsular contracture can also occur with breast implants, although it is rare. Capsular contracture is a medical condition where the tissue surrounding the implant becomes too firm. This requires removal and replacement of the implant.
Dr. Asaadi and our staff are available to discuss any questions or concerns regarding breast implant replacement surgery, or any of our other plastic surgery procedures. Please contact our New Jersey office, our New York office, or request an appointment online today!
