"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
"Amazing - I am 35 years old and was looking for a curvy figure... Dr. Kelishadi performed lipo with fat transfer and I have to say my husband and I are thrilled with the results. 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. I've had plastic surgery with other doctors but they do not compare to..."- A. / RealSelf / Aug 14, 2017

The best patients for Kybella injections have excess fat in the upper neck (submental area) that is causing a double chin or unwanted fullness. Kybella treats stubborn pockets of fat that cannot be reduced with normal weight loss methods that may be caused by genetics, aging, or other conditions. If you are at a healthy weight and diet and exercise have proven to not help reduce the fat in your upper neck, Kybella may be the right treatment for you. While Kybella can reduce small to moderate amounts of fat in the submental area, larger amounts of fat may require surgical liposuction.
Kybella injections are performed during an in-office appointment. We usually apply a numbing ointment to the treatment area after the skin has been cleansed. The treatment takes about 15 – 20 minutes, which includes several small injections targeting the submental area. Some patients may only need one treatment to reach their goal, while others may need multiple treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart.
What to Expect
Since Kybella does not require anesthesia, patients are able to leave the office as soon as they feel comfortable to resume their normal activities. Patients may have temporary swelling, bruising, or numbness under the chin, but this should not last longer than a few days. Call our office immediately if you are experiencing any unusual side effects, such as facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or if your smile is uneven. While the fat cells destroyed by Kybella cannot return, the remaining fat cells can become larger, so patients should maintain a steady weight after their Kybella injections to prevent new pockets of fat from forming in other areas of their body. The results following this treatment leaves your neck looking slimmer and tighter, and your profile will be more defined with significant improvement.
