Breast augmentation can enhance the shape, size, and contour of your breasts. Breast augmentation not only enhances the breasts, it can also help treat breast asymmetries and irregularities. After pregnancy or breast feeding, many women seek breast implant surgery to increase confidence and femininity or as a means to fit more comfortably into clothing or swimwear. If a woman feels her breasts are smaller than she would like, breast augmentation can help create shapely, fuller breasts. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer natural-looking saline breast implants for breast augmentation surgery.
Breast augmentation surgery uses implants to shape and size breasts. Dr. Asaadi only uses saline implants for breast augmentation in our NJ and NYC practices due to their natural feel, look, and shape. Saline breast implants are comprised of a saltwater solution for natural-looking results. Your breast size can be increased by inserting a saline breast implant behind each of your breast muscles, creating shapely, fuller breasts. During breast augmentation surgery, saline breast implants will be placed through inframammary incisions. These incisions are expertly placed under the natural crease of your breast. Inframammary incisions are placed discreetly for more aesthetically pleasing results.
Dr. Asaadi only uses the inframammary incision when performing breast augmentation surgery. The inframammary approach reduces the risk of capsular contracture, which is the term that is given to scar tissue that can form around the incision of some breast implants and cause the breasts to harden. When breast augmentation is performed through the areola, the risk of capsular contracture is increased. Capsular contracture also may cause discomfort, a feeling of tightness, or breasts to appear less natural-looking. The length of your breast augmentation procedure will vary depending on your individual needs, but the majority of breast augmentation surgeries may be completed in 1-2 hours.
Your breast augmentation will begin with the placement of inframammary incisions beneath each breast. Careful consideration is taken to ensure discreet placement of these incisions for the most natural-looking results. While there are different methods of placing a breast implant, Dr. Asaadi will only use a submuscular approach. A submuscular approach is when a saline breast implant is placed behind the muscle of your breast. This approach may reduce interference in future mammograms.
After the placement of your saline breast implants, your inframammary incisions with carefully be sutured. Plastic surgeons use 2 types of stitches when placing sutures after your breast augmentation surgery. If you are receiving traditional stitches, they will be removed 1-2 weeks after your breast implant surgery. On the other hand, if you are receiving dissolvable stitches, these sutures will naturally be processed by your body in the weeks following your breast enhancement surgery.
After the application of sutures, you will be given a soft surgical bra to wear that will provide comfortable support for your healing breasts in the weeks following your breast augmentation surgery. A surgical bra with proper support will expedite the healing process after your breast surgery.

Dr. Asaadi stresses that breast augmentation should be performed perfectly the first time to avoid complications later in life. The correct implant size and shape should be chosen based on the individual patient. Breast augmentation should never be performed haphazardly. Dr. Asaadi seeks perfection to ensure patients happiness in terms of longevity.
Your breast augmentation consultation will begin with a breast exam to evaluate what you would like to achieve with breast implants. Dr. Asaadi will also assess your general medical health and medical history to plan your breast augmentation procedure. You may also be given a mammogram prior to your breast enhancement to ensure the health of your breasts. General anesthesia will be used during breast augmentation to maximize comfort. The ideal candidate for breast augmentation surgery is looking to improve the shape, contours, and size of their breasts.
During your breast augmentation consultation, your breasts will be measured to determine appropriately sized breast implants that will best fit your frame and meet your individual goals. You will be able to see and evaluate the size of the saline breast implants that we offer at Asaadi Plastic Surgery during your breast augmentation surgery consultation. Saline breast implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes so that you can choose the breast implant that will provide you the most pleasing results.
Certain medications may need to be stopped prior to your breast enhancement procedure, such as aspirin. To prepare the day of your breast augmentation, we suggest you wear loose, comfortable clothing with no jewelry or makeup. It is important that a friend or family member is present with you, as you will not be able to drive immediately following breast augmentation. You may also need assistance at home for the first 2-3 days following your breast enhancement.
As each patient is different, so is each individual’s rate of healing. It is important to give your body the proper rest it needs and avoid lifting or bending after breast augmentation surgery. Common breast augmentation side effects include breast pain, discomfort, and soreness. Dr. Asaadi does not have patients with capsular contracture, breast implant leakage, bleeding, or hematoma. Following breast augmentation surgery with Dr. Asaadi, you will not need drains or dressings. Instead, you will be given a soft, supportive bra to wear following breast augmentation.
Proper hygiene is very important following breast augmentation. We suggest you do not swim or take a bath until your incision sites have properly healed. Regular showering is permitted 24 hours after your breast enhancement surgery. Resting after your breast augmentation is extremely important. All strenuous activity must be stopped until Dr. Asaadi feels as though your breasts have properly healed.
It is common that your breasts may be sensitive in the weeks following your breast augmentation. Breast swelling is normal and will go down as you recover from your breast enlargement surgery. We stress that you do not resume any physical activities for 1 month following your breast enhancement procedure, as this can delay your recovery and cause damage to your healing breasts. Dr. Asaadi uses the most advanced techniques when performing breast augmentation surgery, which results in minimal pain and discomfort and a shorter recovery time.
It is important that you choose a skilled breast augmentation surgeon who understands your individual anatomy. When the right plastic surgeon performs breast augmentation surgery, there is usually no need for additional breast augmentation surgery. Dr. Asaadi stresses the importance of choosing a qualified, experienced, and board-certified plastic surgeon when considering breast enhancement.
Dr. Asaadi is a skilled plastic surgeon who is highly trained in breast augmentation surgery and has a deep understanding of breast anatomy. Dr. Asaadi focuses on providing natural-looking results the first time so that patients are pleased with their plastic surgery results and do not require additional surgery. Dr. Asaadi has been performing breast augmentation in New Jersey and NYC for over 20 years. With all of his years of practice, Dr. Asaadi’s patients often do not even realize they have breast implants years following surgery because they are so natural-looking.

Dear Dr. Asaadi,
I have always had bags under my eyes, but as I became older, they seemed to get worse. Every time I looked in the mirror, all I saw were those bags. At least once a day at work, someone would ask me if I was tired. So, when my daughter announced her engagement, I thought it was time to do something. I made an appointment with Dr. Asaadi to see what my options were. My surgery was scheduled for August of 2012.
I was scared and apprehensive, but it was the right decision. I feel like a new person. No one asks me anymore if I am tired and I don’t shy away from having my picture taken. Dr. Asaadi and his staff have been terrific, so caring and professional. I only took one week off from work, and the bruising was minimal.
I probably would still have the bags if my daughter didn’t get married.
But, I am so thankful I had the surgery. And I was the proud mother of the bride. - M.W.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
I have known Dr. Asaadi for fifteen years. I first met him in my fifties. I look tired and worn out and looking for a more youthful appearance. In meeting Dr. Asaadi he presented a picture of a very sincere and up standing person.
He took the time to go over my goals and together we outlined what was needed. I had rhinoplasty and eye corrective surgery. Down time was minimal and the results perfect.
Several years later I had a face lift and again was completely satisfied.
Presently I am 69 years old looking way better than when I first met with him. Let me add that since my surgery Dr. Asaadi has maintained my youthful appearance by using injectable fillers. He is a true genius and a very honest person whom I highly recommend.
Also his staff is the best - A.E.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
Just a short note to tell you how happy I am and to thank you for your wonderful work. As soon as I walked out the door from our first consultation, I had this “feeling” and I knew you were the one I could put 100% trust in. Thank you for your attention to detail, the care you’ve shown me, and your warm personality. I count myself luck to know you.
Thanks and all the best to you!
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
“I am so very grateful for the tummy tuck that Dr. Asaadi performed on me. Dr. Asaadi has proven to me to be a meticulous artist of the body. I felt that the office and staff compares to no other. It has been 5 years since my surgery, I am 42 years old and I am feeling and looking just as good if not better since surgery. I am more confident putting on my clothing, especially bathing suits. Dr. Asaadi gave me my belly back from 20 years ago (pre-babies)."
I not only feel better in the way in which my body looks, but most important it changed the way I view myself inside and out.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
My name is Paula and about a month ago you gave me some botox injections. I had recently finished nine months of very tough treatment for a stage III breast cancer and I was neither feeling nor looking my best. My hair had just begun to grow but I still was showing way too much forehead for my comfort zone so I thought perhaps a little botox would give me a "lift".
Well, I cannot say enough about my results. I feel fantastic about the way my skin looks. In fact, the other evening I bumped into some friends at a restaurant. The first thing they said to me was "your skin looks fabulous! Even better than before your diagnosis." Now that's amazing. Since seeing you, I have received numerous compliments about how alive I look. Well, I do have a great attitude but I have to say that your skillful work has really made me feel confident.
Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication. I wish all women who have been through treatment could feel as good as I feel. Thank you Dr. Asaadi.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
“After 10 years of hearing comments about how tired I appeared, I decided that the time had come for me to take action which required more than just getting extra sleep!!!
I did my research and decided that Dr. Asaadi was the best choice upon seeing the results of past patients and the unique technique that he uses.
Now, close to two years later, I couldn't be happier! Not only do I look 10 years younger, but I now feel refreshed and vibrant. No more comments about how tired I appear.
This surgery not only restored my youth, but it greatly improved my confidence level. As a salesperson and a single girl, this is incredibly Important!!! Whereas prior to the surgery, I couldn't even think about walking out the door without makeup, now I am completely comfortable with it. No more trying to conceal or detract attention from the severe bags under my eyes!!! Friends and relatives, and even sometimes I, cannot believe the difference this surgery has made! One of the best parts is that it looks incredibly natural. No one would ever know I had anything done unless I had told them. A yearlong spa getaway would not have produced such results!"
It was hands down the best money I ever spent!!!!! I feel like I'm a walking billboard for Blepharoplasty.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
“Once I decided to undergo a tummy tuck procedure, I knew my appearance would change for the better. What I did not anticipate is what a profound effect the results would have on my overall way of life. Along with giving me the body I wanted, the transformation gave me a great sense of confidence, reassurance, and security with myself. I now walk upright and confident, as opposed to slouched and submissive. I enjoy shopping for clothes and wearing two piece bathing suits on the beach.
If anyone is contemplating having this procedure done, I strongly encourage them to do so."
Thanks to Dr. Asaadi I have the perfect body and a better life. - CT
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
Thank you - the phrase is simple and the words are few, but behind them lies a world of appreciation. Special people like you make the world a brighter place.
Thank you for helping me get better. Also to improve day by day my special future. I pray God bless your hands to help the life of others.
On May 12, 2010 Dr. Asaadi performed a bilateral reduction mammoplasty, CORE AbdominoplastySM, repair of diastasis recti, VASER® LipoSelection of the back, flanks, upper inner thighs, pubic area, lateral chest walls, and a small area of the upper arms. I was very sore for the first week, but after that I could see improvement every couple of days. The more I walked the better and stronger I felt.
In exactly six weeks after the surgery I went with my daughter, son-in-law, and their 13 month old son to a destination wedding feeling great. My daughter was nervous that I wouldn’t be able to take care of the baby like I needed to ( her and her husband were in the wedding), but I had so much more energy and strength than I did in years. I felt so wonderful in my new clothes, and I can’t begin to express how many compliments I received.....especially in my “Tankini”!!!
I now look forward to getting up in the morning and picking out a nice fitting outfit for the day, and not some loose fitting shirt and baggy pants. Thank you, Dr. Asaadi....you gave me my self-confidence back!!!!”
Thank you, Dr. Asaadi....you gave me my self-confidence back!!!!”
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
Thank you for all your professionalism and time spent going over the procedure. I am pleased thus far; I can only imagine my gratitude in the months ahead, as I see my nose transforming. I put my face in the hands of a true sculptor and have nothing but praise and recommendation. Your staff are a wonderful representation of your reputation on being a true caring practice. Many Thanks.
