"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing!!! He made me feel so comfortable! I had Breast Augmentation May 26th. I'm three months out and loving my results! I was very self conscious about my chest. My breasts shrunk due to breast feeding. I didn't even want to change in front of my husband. (he loved them no matter what lol) and now I am feeling so great about it! He said he's even noticed a boost in my confidence level. I love it! i feel good..i feel sexy. I never thought I would actually go through with getting this done, but Dr. Kelishadi and his staff helped me with every step of the way. He was very caring and checked up on me after surgery. His staff was very nice as well. All so helpful! I highly recommend him!"- J.V. / Yelp / Jul 27, 2017
"It´s been a month since my wife has gone under surgery with Dr. Kelishadi for a breast augmentation procedure, and the results are incredible. My wife has been wanting to get this done for a very long time, but we were a bit concerned about the final outcome. Why have we waited so long, my gosh, she's so happy now, and I'm even happier :-) Dr. Kelishadi and his staff, Alejandra, Shea, and the anesthesiologist he works with, have been professional and supportive throughout the entire process. Dr. Kelishadi even contacted us himself, the first Sunday after the procedure to see how my wife was doing. We are so thankful and definitely recommend him 100% to anyone who wants to look better, feel better and be treated like family, no doubt. Thank you Sean."- C.S. / Yelp / Sep 09, 2018

"I'm just barely 2 months post op from my breast augmentation , and I'm in Hawaii celebrating in my bikinis! Lol lol So first of all, a shout out to Dr Kelishadi and his staff: Alenjandra and Shea- they ladies are absolutely wonderful! So you guys know the classic tale, mother of a couple kids decided to get breast augmentation after breastfeeding destroyed them.... yup that's me! I ended up choosing SSK because I was impressed by his resume and portfolio- which he extensively went over during our consultation. Dr Kelashadi, I felt connected very well with me and it's important for me to feel like my doctor will care about me. He's also hip, young, healthy and looks like he has steady hands. The consultation itself is .., not gonna lie... extremely awkward...., but it's part of the process. That's when you try on different implant sizes and the doctor examines your breast. In the end we decided on 365cc, high profile which the doctor recommended after examining my proportions. The surgical facility itself was very clean and the staff was amazing. I had a wonderful experience. Recovery was fast and quick.. but to be fair..... my pain tolerance is high... especially after giving birth 2 times... After the recovery... my breast looked pretty hard and square... I definitely wasn't ready to wear a tube top or anything. By the week 6 however... they were taking form and I was so excited about them... and each day after the 6th week... they looked progressively better and better. So i am nearly 8 weeks out... they are not 100% settled yet but I don't care... im in Hawaii in a bikini! Lol Anyway, I understand everyone's experience will be different... I just happened to have a very ideal experience and I am tremendously grateful for everything and everyone. I am very happy with my body. The results, honestly... ended way better than I thought it would be... going in I had no expectations because I seriously hated how they looked originally. I just can't believe how I look in certain clothes and in bikinis- I am sooo happy!"- T.L. / Yelp / May 19, 2018
"The best of the best... I wish there were more stars to add to his review, but if the five stars describe the best, then that would be Dr. Kelishadi. I have no words to describe the amazing job he's doing with every case. He is very patient, meticulous and never gives up until the smallest detail is taken care of. Thank you Dr Kelishadi for everything"- S.A. / Yelp / Apr 19, 2018
As we age, skin laxity decreases causing various aspects of the face to begin to sag over time. This is especially true in the upper face region, and can affect both men and women. When looking in the mirror, if you feel you look tired or angry, or notice frown lines between the brows or are bothered by a drooping brow, a brow lift may be the right cosmetic treatment for you.
Prior to surgery, general anesthesia will be administered. This can be done through general anesthesia or IV sedation depending on the nature of the surgery. The incision technique used during a brow lift is determined based on the severity of sag, whether or not the forehead is affected, and the position of the hairline, should the incision be placed there. There are many approaches to consider.
- Traditional Incision
This is the open brow lift incision, which places the incision at the top of the head behind the hairline. This incision not only hides scarring, but it provides a certain degree of controlled lifting during the procedure. This type of incisions works well for those with both a sagging brow and frown lines, and is the preferred method if you are at risk for having a receding hairline.
- Tricophytic Incision
This incision is placed right along the hairline. It allows for significant lifting of the brow in men and women who have a strong hairline with little risk for recession.
- Lateral Brow Lift
Also known as a temporal brow lift, this technique places the incision in the hairline just above the temples. It allows for the outer parts of the brow to be lifted and works well for sagging that is present in the outer portion of the brows. It also helps to smoothen crow’s feet as well as fine lines on the outside of the eye.
- Endoscopic Forehead Lift
This is one of the more modern techniques used in brow lift surgery. It places several tiny incisions in the hair-bearing area of the scalp, and inserts a tool known as an endoscope, which travels down to the area of the eyebrow, releasing its attachments. Through the camera of the endoscope, re-suspension of the brow tissues is performed using sutures to told the brow to its newly lifted position.
What to Expect
Recovery following brow lift surgery varies, with more post-operative discomfort and swelling occurring with the open approach versus the endoscopic or temporal methods. Overall, there will be slight bruising and swelling in the upper face near the brows and possibly around the eyes. Cold compression helps to diminish the swelling and you will be advised to sleep upright for the first several nights following surgery. It is important to avoid any movement or activities that places stress on the face. The average recovery time from this procedure is about 2 – 3 weeks. The outcome can usually be seen immediately, resulting in a rejuvenated appearance that looks softer, more alert, and with a noticeable reduction in fine lines and sagging in the upper face.
