"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

"Here is the before (on right) and after (on left, brighter pic) pics.My main issue was the crease between my eyes, in the middle, slightly above and in my brow area. In the pics it looks slight but in real life I had a definite crease, which was obvious.As you can see that has been taken care of!!! Also the other wrinkles on my forehead area look much better, too.The staff at SSK, NB was amazing and Dr. Kelishadii is top notch!Krystal- thanks again for making my 1st Botox experience a awesome one and giving me such amazing results.PS still seeing the results."- A.H. / Yelp / Oct 12, 2021
"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
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.
