"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
"Dr. Kelishadi and the team at SSK Plastic Surgery is the best of the best out there. Since January of this year I had been researching doctors in the SoCal area. I was just doing google searches, and found a lot of amazing doctors. I had a few consultations around the Newport, Laguna, and Beverly Hills areas. They were all great, but SSK was exceptional. Something that really impressed me was how personable Dr. Kelishadi was. I had only submitted an inquiry of interest in a consultation, and he called me! No other dr had done that. When I met with Dr. Kelishadi and Lindsey for the first time, I felt very comfortable. The office is beautiful and clean. From the first consultation I knew I found the Dr. for my breast augmentation. Prior to surgery, Dr. Kelishadi worked with me on sizing and implants. I ended up going for the 300 cc since I am a pretty petite person. I had my surgery this past July, and now a month later I can say it was the BEST decision I could've made! I've wanted a breast augmentation since I was in high school, and now in my mid twenties I finally decided to go for it and have been loving it ever since. The day of surgery everyone at the surgery clinic was so comforting and sweet. It made the whole process so easy. After surgery, Dr. Kelishadi still takes such good care of you! He has his personal phone ready just in case you have any questions/concerns post surgery. And he calls you just to check in and see how you're doing. It really was the extra mile! My recovery was quick and (nearly) pain-free. I was off the pain killers just 3 days post surgery, overall the pain was bearable even at its worst. Today I am a month in and feeling almost 100% again! I am SO happy with my results and my choice with SSK plastic surgery. If you are having any hesitations with your decision to get the body/face you've always wanted I say there's no time like the present! And going to SSK is the first step! I hope by me sharing my experience, helps!!"- K.K. / Yelp / Aug 22, 2017

Dr. Kelishadi was great, made us feel at ease and was there through the recovery every step of the way. If we had any questions he was a phone call away.

"Dr. Kelishadi is absolutely amazing! I went in for micro needling and I'm not even kidding... it was completely painless. And not the kind of "painless" that waxing and laser hair removal ads say where it actually hurts like crazy... It was actually PAINLESS. His attention to detail was great, and I was able to take headshots 6 days later with no redness whatsoever. I've been getting tons of comments that I look visibly several years younger. I have the best skin right now that I've ever had. I couldn't recommend him enough!"- K.S. / Yelp / Aug 11, 2017
Chin augmentation is a common procedure for both men and women. If you are unhappy with the size and look of your chin or feel you have an undefined profile, chin augmentation can redefine the lower portion of your face and neck. It is also very common for some of our patients to combine rhinoplasty with their chin augmentation procedure. This combined approached ensures that the features of the face are balanced and in proportion.
During chin augmentation, general anesthesia will be administered and an incision made just under the chin. A pocket is first created to hold the implant in place, which involves shaving some of the bone to create grooves to keep the implant in position. The implant is inserted through the incision and is placed over the bone below the lower lip. In some cases, the incision can be made inside the lip where the lower lip meets the gumline. Both incisional points help to conceal scars. Small sutures are used to close the incisions and the chin will be wrapped with bandages.
What to Expect
Chin augmentation surgery yields immediate results, which can be very gratifying for our patients. Facial swelling will occur after surgery, along with some bruising, but this is temporary. If chin augmentation was performed alone, the recovery period lasts about 2 weeks. Strenuous activity should be avoided during this time period. Whether you had chin augmentation to create a stronger jawline, or had chin reduction to reduce it, you will love your results. This particular surgery has very high success rates and under the hands of our skilled surgeon, your appearance will look natural and proportionate.
