Change is constant. Our hormone and collagen levels fluctuate and slowly decline. Meanwhile, our job, family, and social responsibilities often increase our cortisol and stress levels, which in turn can cause gains in fat and weight while reducing our energy and time for ourselves. Even if we can lose significant amounts of weight, we need to shrink stretched-out muscles and skin.
"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
Lost firmness in muscles and skin can result from a lack of sufficient exercise, changes caused by aging, weight loss, chronic illness, and depression. Stress and lax muscles show in skin that is less firm, less smooth, and less attractive. Clothing on affected areas may not fit well. Have you avoided being seen in skirts, shorts, or swimsuits that show fat pooled around your knees, thighs, and upward on your abdomen, arms, breasts, and neck? Have you tried to hide a loose jawline behind turtlenecks, and an infirm lower half beneath pants and long dresses? Frustrated, you don’t want a major invasive surgical procedure or an insufficient non-invasive option; you need a less-invasive solution from your Orange County Plastic Surgeon to help you.
SSK is excited to offer ThermiTight®, a quick, easy, and micro-invasive option to rejuvenate muscle and skin from the neck, breast, and arms to the abdomen, thighs, and knees. Using a tiny temperature-sensitive probe and our gentle technique, we apply a preset temperature and amount of thermal heat/energy beneath the surface of the skin to targeted areas of tissue. While building collagen, our technique tightens muscle and skin to help you look younger and feel confident. We carefully monitor your skin temperature for safety and effectiveness via an infrared camera. Under local anesthesia, you’ll talk with us much of the time. As soon as we finish, I’ll place a gentle wrap around the treated area for your comfort. If we just treated your neck, you will need to wear a Velcro compression neck garment/strap for the next 24 hours and then for a week at night to protect your investment. Some patients feel tightening and see results quickly.
You’ll probably go back to your normal activities the next day. Being treated on Thursday or Friday means returning to your job on Monday?maybe looking tighter and younger already. All patients should continue to see results over the next few months, thankful for ThermiTight®.
Zero or No Discomfort or Bruising * Little to No Downtime * Quick Results * Worthwhile!
ThermiTight® can easily be incorporated into your day. For a consultation and answers to your questions, call us at 949-515-7874. You can look younger and feel better before you know it!
