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

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
Pockets of fat
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.

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 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.
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℠ 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℠ 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.

Loose, sagging skin as well as excess fat deposits on the abdomen can make a person feel self-conscious. For many plastic surgeons, a tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, has traditionally been the solution to remove excess abdominal skin and fat. While tummy tuck surgery is an effective body contouring treatment, it can miss abdominal bulging due to the technique surgeons have come to rely on. CORE Abdominoplasty℠ is a revolutionary tummy tuck procedure that allows for the precise repair of weakened abdominal muscles.
Tummy Tuck VS. CORE Abdominoplasty℠
A tummy tuck is performed with the patient lying flat to remove excess fat and skin from the midsection while tightening the underlying abdominal muscles. CORE Abdominoplasty℠ is performed similar to a tummy tuck with the patient lying flat. However, once the muscles are tightened during CORE Abdominoplasty℠, the patient is then positioned at a 45° angle to allow Dr. Asaadi to see any additional bulging that may be present in the sitting position. CORE Abdominoplasty℠ allows for further tightening of the muscles layers within the abdomen for more sculpted results.
Tummy Tuck: Performed with the patient lying flat to allow for excess fat and skin to be removed while tightening the underlying muscles.
CORE Abdominoplasty℠: The patient is positioned at a 45° angle during surgery to allow for more comprehensive results and further tightening of the muscle layers.
Benefits Of CORE Abdominoplasty℠
CORE Abdominoplasty℠ is an effective treatment to contour the midsection and remove loose, drooping skin. Because CORE Abdominoplasty℠ allows for additional tightening of the muscle layers, patients enjoy a smoother, firmer abdominal profile than with traditional tummy tuck surgery. CORE Abdominoplasty℠ is ideal for patients who have experienced significant weight loss or for women who have given birth and experience weakened abdominal muscles. Results from CORE Abdominoplasty℠ are long-lasting and natural-looking.
CORE Abdominoplasty℠ Benefits
Removes Excess Skin & Fat
Repairs & Tightens Weakened Muscles
Comprehensive Results For A Slim, Firm Midsection
Ideal For Women After Childbirth
Long-Lasting, Natural-Looking Results
Can Alleviate Lower Back Pain
