"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
"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

"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

The best patients for Kybella injections have excess fat in the upper neck (submental area) that is causing a double chin or unwanted fullness. Kybella treats stubborn pockets of fat that cannot be reduced with normal weight loss methods that may be caused by genetics, aging, or other conditions. If you are at a healthy weight and diet and exercise have proven to not help reduce the fat in your upper neck, Kybella may be the right treatment for you. While Kybella can reduce small to moderate amounts of fat in the submental area, larger amounts of fat may require surgical liposuction.
Kybella injections are performed during an in-office appointment. We usually apply a numbing ointment to the treatment area after the skin has been cleansed. The treatment takes about 15 – 20 minutes, which includes several small injections targeting the submental area. Some patients may only need one treatment to reach their goal, while others may need multiple treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart.
What to Expect
Since Kybella does not require anesthesia, patients are able to leave the office as soon as they feel comfortable to resume their normal activities. Patients may have temporary swelling, bruising, or numbness under the chin, but this should not last longer than a few days. Call our office immediately if you are experiencing any unusual side effects, such as facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or if your smile is uneven. While the fat cells destroyed by Kybella cannot return, the remaining fat cells can become larger, so patients should maintain a steady weight after their Kybella injections to prevent new pockets of fat from forming in other areas of their body. The results following this treatment leaves your neck looking slimmer and tighter, and your profile will be more defined with significant improvement.
