"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
"I can't say enough good stuff about Jolene. In fact, I followed her to SSK from her previous job. She's incredibly skilled and always works with me to achieve the perfect natural results I want. I really feel like she listens to what I want, and she makes sure I'm 100% happy before I leave the office. She is so sweet, while exuding a confidence and professionalism that puts me at ease. She's also incredibly generous with her time, and gives excellent follow-up care and advice via text. I'm grateful I found her!"- Z.W. / Yelp / Mar 20, 2020

"SSK Plastic surgery is the best plastic surgeons office in OC. Their entire staff is amazing and is very responsive. Jolene is their injector there and is amazing. I have gotten Botox, filler, and a few laser treatments from her and she is amazing. She always preps you on what exactly to expect, how it will feel, the results and she always follows up with you every day after. At SSK they really put their patients health and concerns first! Dr. K always comes in before the procedure and lets you know what to expect and sort of walks you through the process to ensure you know you are in good hands. He has some of the most talented people working at SSK! Jolene is also the sweetest person ever and will make you feel comfortable throughout the entire process :)"- S.C. / Yelp / Mar 19, 2020
"Dr. Kelishadi is hands down the best plastic surgeon in Orange County. He and his team made me feel comfortable and always taken care of. Shea and Alejandra answered any and all questions I had prior to my consultation. The team of anesthesiologists were world class and put my mind at ease prior to surgery. Dr. Kelishadi treated me like I was his only patient and was constantly checking in with myself and my husband post op and ready to answer any questions I've had since. If you have any desire to have any cosmetic procedures done, I encourage you to go see the very best and that is Dr. Sean Kelishadi. In addition to having my breasts augmentation at SSK, I have also been lucky enough to become a patient of nurse Jolene Retaskie. I reached out to her with some questions regarding Botox. She answered all of my questions and also provided me get resources to get discounts and coupons which was amazing!! She was so gentle and explained each step as I got my first dose of Botox. After she followed up with me and since then she checks in and always she's any specials or contests with me. As a busy working mom it's so nice to have a safe place to have "work" done. I highly recommend Jolene for all your injections needs!"- L.S. / Yelp / Mar 19, 2020
Brow Lift Ideal Candidates
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.
Brow Lift Surgical Techniques
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 with Brow Lift
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.
