"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
"Doctor Kelishadi is the best plastic surgeon. He answered all my questions and concerns, and was very patient with me during the whole procedure. Breast augmentation is a big deal, he made sure I am comfortable, he was realistic and performed all the measurements and simulations to ensure that the procedure is safe for me and that I will have the best results. 4 months after the surgery I still can not believe this is ME in the mirror! He has done amazing work, he is really passionate about his art and his results are natural. What I like about him is that he always grow and learn about the trends, he stay up to date with everything and he makes sure he provides the best service for us. After the surgery I had his private phone number and I could text him or call him anytime with questions during the recovery. I knew exactly what to do so my recovery is fast and with no problems, I had all the details instructions about medications I need to take and what I can and can not do. His staff is the friendliest and most helpful! Shae and Alejandra answered all my questions. They both were very patient, they have never rushed me and made sure I feel comfortable and ready for the surgery. I highly recommend SSK Plastic Surgery. I am extremely happy with my results, I will come back to this place for the different treatments that they offer, because I know I can trust Doctor Kelishadi and his staff!"- A.S. / Yelp / Sep 09, 2019
"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing! I love how attentive he is and gives you great advice on what you should get done or shouldn't. I've been to different surgeon offices and I always find myself booking another appointment with his office instead. The ladies at his office are another reason why I keep coming as well, such sweet and friendly ladies. I love how Every time I come they are super welcoming and I don't feel like I'm being judged! I've been to Offices before where I feel like I'm bugging the staff or when I'm asking questions they answer very annoyed. Here! They answer all your questions with concern and very kindly. Thank you Shae & Alex for being great customer service representatives & following up on my appointment reminders! I've had a hydra facial + Vivace done at his office. Which I definitely recommend, I should probably book another hydra-facial while I'm writing this review. Also, I've had my breast done elsewhere but will be contacting Dr. K once I'm ready for new boobies. I'll be referring all my clients, friends, staff, and family to Dr. Kelishadi FIVE STARS FROM ISABELLA"- I.C. / Yelp / Jun 21, 2019

Patients should have the cause of their hair loss diagnosed by Dr. Kelishadi before receiving a hair transplant at SSK Plastic Surgery. This gives patients the highest chances of hair transplant success. Fortunately, the NeoGraft system can be used on men and women of all ages and hair types with thinning or bald areas but still enough hair to reach their cosmetic goals. NeoGraft does not create new hair follicles but transfers them from denser areas to thinning or balding areas. This gives patients more coverage and the appearance of thicker, fuller hair.
The NeoGraft hair restoration process can take between 3 – 8 hours with a local anesthetic to minimize patient discomfort. This timeline can change based on the number of follicles being harvested. The advanced NeoGraft system allows Dr. Kelishadi to perform the hair restoration without stitches, staples, or linear scars. SSK Plastic Surgery will create a custom treatment plan that considers where the hair follicles are taken from and where they will be rooted. We also consider the angle, direction, and orientation of the hair to match the appearance of the surrounding hair. Once the treatment plan is in place, Dr. Kelishadi uses the NeoGraft system to choose which hair follicles will be removed, looking for consistent diameter and length. Each graft is then carefully prepared before they are implanted into the thinning or balding areas of the scalp.
Recovery and Results
While most patients feel no pain after their NeoGraft procedure, they should still refrain from intense activity or exercise for about a week after surgery. For the first several days following treatment, the grafts will begin to scab over so we recommend using any shampoo or ointments as suggested by their surgeon. Treat the hair grafts gently for the first two weeks when taking a shower or styling the hair. Be careful to protect the grafts from sunlight, wind, or other environmental exposure.
The hair follicles will take about 2 – 3 weeks to take root in the scalp. At this point, the hair will begin to shed, which is an important part of the process. In 3 – 4 months, patients will see their new growth that will blend in with their natural hair. One of the reasons why the pre-transplant exam is so essential is because our team needs to determine the reason for hair loss. Knowing this information can help keep or enhance your final outcome.
There are a number of factors that determine the cost of a NeoGraft hair transplant, including the number of follicles transplanted. Most patients receive around 2,000 grafts but up to 3,000 grafts can be done in one day. Cost typically ranges between $2,000 and $20,000. An experienced plastic surgeon, like Dr. Kelishadi, has the skills to give patients the natural results they want. A bad hair transplant can be extensive and costly to fix so it's better to choose the right surgeon the first time. SSK Plastic Surgery works hard to determine the reason for hair loss before the transplant for the best results.
