"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 am 2 weeks post-op from a breast augmentation with Dr. Kelishadi.I could not have chosen a better doctor. Dr Kelishadi is not only an extremely skilled surgeon, but also a very kind person who truly cares about his patients - I mean this wholeheartedly - I had some concerns because of a health condition I have and Dr. K empathized and gave me complete confidence in that the surgery will go well despite this, and took extra care because of my condition. The surgery center was immaculate, the nurses and anesthesiologists were experienced, kind, and made me feel very comfortable. I was contacted by the team post-op to ask how recovery was going and even given a direct line for Dr Kelishadi if something were to come up.Recovery was much easier than expected with the Dr’s methods. I am still healing but I already find my result perfect... I cannot recommend SSK enough!"- A.A. / Yelp / Nov 17, 2022
"Tummy tuck, lipo, breast lift/revision & augmentation & fat transfer - 4 kids (2 of them being c-sections) you think you know where this story is going, right?? Nope! I actually had nice skin (not a flat tire) but saggy, uneven boobs and a big, belly...from POOR EATING HABITS. I came to talk to K wanting a mommy makeover but he gave me so much more. After meeting with me he explained that given my BMI, he would not perform the surgery until I lost weight. It was the best thing that he could've ever done for me because he didn't just give me a mommy makeover, he gave me a lifestyle change which is a mental consciousness of my health.3 months later, I was within a healthy weight and today, I'm 10 days post op. I had a tummy tuck, breast lift/revision and augmentation. I had a fat transfer and liposuction. I will not lie. IT HURTS. Well, it hurt. Today it's more irritating to be lying in a beach chair type position lol! Day 1 was fine because I was doped up. Day 2-5 I regretted doing it. I cried. I asked myself 100x why I did this but it's ok. It's mentally exhausting. But YOU CAN DO IT. You'll cry. Scream. Yell. Question it all. But you will be SO HAPPY you gave yourself this gift. You are in the BEST of hands. I'm only days days post op but I know a year from now I'll be back on here smiling and answering your questions as you go through your journey."- K. / RealSelf / Oct 30, 2022
"I went to this office to have bio identical hormones inserted under my skin. Everyone in this office is kind and professional. I was treated extremely well and felt comfortable that I was getting great care and indeed I was! I highly recommend SSK Plastic Surgery!"- S.L. / Yelp / Oct 20, 2022
"Dr. Kelishadi and his wonderful team are beyond words- seriously incredible! I scheduled a consult with him, went and immediately knew he was the one for me. Valerie at the front desk loves her job, and you can tell just by speaking with her over the phone. When I went in for my consult, I was greeted warmly by Dr. Kelishadi, Sherry, Aida and every other member of his team. They all stopped to say "Hello" and "Welcome!" After spending an hour-long consult with Dr. Kelishadi I felt validated, heard, and confident. I went ahead and booked the surgery at the end of my consult and never looked back. I did not schedule a consultation with an other surgeons because I knew he would get it right! Back story: I was unsatisfied with my previous lift and implants. My previous surgeon had even completed a revision, yet still didn’t get it right. Turns out I had the wrong profile implants and the wrong type of lift from the beginning. Insert Dr. Kelishadi and I am over the moon with my results!He completed a revision with a lift (lollipop) and placed Ultra High Profile implants to give me the exact look I wanted. Seriously, look no further. He is the one for you!"- T.C. / Yelp / Sep 19, 2022
Am I A Candidate for Hair Restoration?
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.
How is NeoGraft FUE Hair Restoration Performed?
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.
Neograft 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.
How Much does Hair Restoration Cost?
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.
