"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

"This review is for Krystal. I was going to SSK for a consultation (from out of town) and since I was going to be in the office, I thought I should make the most of it and have Botox done while there. I had only had Botox done 1x before and it was approx 3 years ago. It was an awful experience, but I thought I would give SSK and Krystal a try and see if it would be any better. I informed the staff that I have a phobia of needles and so anything we could do to make it better would be much appreciated. Their office is clean and very nice and puts you at ease. Krystal did everything possible to make it the best experience- and it was! She didn’t draw on my face, but rather on the paper next to her, she used the best needles to make them the most effective and reduce pain, she applied a numbing cream (AMAZING), let me listen to music and checked in with me during. Her technique was incredible and you can tell she truly is a master of her craft! I didn’t pass out. I didn’t hurt and I didn’t even bruise!!! My lines are worlds better and it is all because of Krystal. Thank you for listening to me and taking the time to do a great job! You’re so talented."- L.F. / Yelp / Oct 12, 2021
"Ladies if you are thinking about getting any type of cosmetic surgery done, this is the place!! From financing to the surgery it was such a easy process. Dr. Kelishadi and his assistant Valerie are awesome! Dr. Kelishadi takes the time to discuss your expectations and what he can do for you. I got my lift and augmentation in July, now I am going back for my tummy tuck and fat transfer to my buttocks. I am beyond excited, thank you Dr. Kelishadi!"- I.J. / Yelp / Oct 03, 2021
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.
