Photorejuvenation – Look Younger in San Francisco

With the nearly year-round great weather in San Francisco and Bay Area, many people spend more time in the sun then they should. Considering the skin is the outermost protection against the environment, over time, it is only natural that it begins to show the signs of early aging and sun damage, even more so if you are an avid sunbather, skier or involved in other outdoor activities.

If your skin makes you look older than you are, Dr. Shahin Javaheri can help you decide which skin care treatment option is best for you. For many patients, photorejuvenation in San Francisco is a great option.

Photorejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment which virtually erases skin damage. By supplying a broad spectrum of light that reaches deep down to the collagen producing level of the skin, the patented non-laser technology diminishes the signs of aging without harming the surface of the skin.

Most people that undergo the treatments end up with healthier and younger looking skin, especially around the face, neck and chest, starting with their first treatments. Treatment take roughly twenty to forty minutes,and a minimum of five treatments is recommended for optimal results. Recovery is considered immediate, with minor discomfort and some redness is expected.

Natural Breast Augmentation in San Francisco

Natural breast enhancement is a procedure that involves placing the patients own fat, removed by liposuction from donor sites such as the abdomen, hips, flanks or thighs, into the breast by the micro fat injection technique.  During a natural breast enhancement, fat is incorporated into the breasts permanently. This can be performed in a primary breast augmentation, or in breast reconstruction following mastectomy.

San Francisco plastic surgeon Dr. Shahin Javaheri has been perfecting the micro fat injection over the last 8 years.  Since it is common for a small percentage of fat to be absorbed by the body, Dr. Javaheri  generally likes to over-correct to compensate for this absorption.  

The natural breast augmentation procedure is ideal for those patients who do not wish to have foreign material such as implants in their body, those with certain congenital breast deformities, those with implants who would like them removed due to contractures, or deformities.  The outcome is very natural and beautiful, and gives the patient the enhancement they desire.  

A complete evaluation and education is given at your consultation, so book your appointment in San Francisco or Berkeley with Dr. Javaheri today and start your journey to a shapelier new you! To learn more about natural breast augmentation, please call 415.923.3800

What is an Arm Lift and Who is It For?

People who have lost a large amount of weight are often left with excess skin in specific parts of the body. If the underside of your upper arms are sagging, droopy or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat, an arm lift may be right for you.

While exercise can help strengthen and improve overall muscle tone, it can’t do much for skin that has lost elasticity. The arm lift procedure will help reduce excess skin and the fat between the underarm and the elbow.

Immediately following an arm lift procedure, you can expect immediate results, including smoother skin and a more toned and proportionate overall appearance. Once the swelling subsides, the results will be even more dramatic.

An arm lift procedure can be a very rewarding procedure, especially for patients who have undergone gastric bypass surgery and suffer from folds of skin, rashes, skin irritation as a result of excess skin.

San Francisco Plastic Surgeon Dr. Shahin Javaheri can help educate you about the arm lift procedure, so that you know what to expect before you make a decision.

Facial Fillers Explained including Radiesse & Collagen

Fillers are artificially synthesized materials used for the purpose of softening wrinkles and plumbing areas of the face that have either never had enough volume or have lost volume with age.

There are many different classes, product names, and manufacturers of facial fillers, including Radiesse, Restylane, Collagen and more, and this wide range of products and aggressive marketing campaigns can be confusing to patients.

Like botulinum toxin injections, filler injections are a minimal-to-no downtime procedure that is performed in a single office visit. Results are almost instantaneous and can last over a year for many patients.

At the end of the day, certain facial fillers will work better for certain patients in specific areas of the face, and the best course of action is to talk to an experienced plastic surgeon, and Dr. Shahin Javaheri can help you select the best facial filler for your situation.

Body Lift in San Francisco Explained

Individuals who have lost a large amount of weight often suffer from an excess of loose and saggy skin, especially around their arms, abdomen, thighs, hips and buttock areas. Regardless if it was accomplished by traditional weight loss methods, gastric bypass, or weight reduction surgery, it is completely natural for your skin to lose elasticity.

Body contouring following major weight loss improves the shape and tone of your underlying tissue, and removes excess sagging fat and skin. It may include a combination of body, breast, arm, and thigh lifts. A Belt Lipectomy, also known as the lower body lift, offers the most dramatic transformation of the mid and lower body. It re-sculpts the abdomen, hips, and buttocks. Body lift procedure is most commonly performed on post bariatric patients but not exclusively.

Dr Javaheri is an accomplished expert in the area of post-massive weight loss surgery. He has performed many procedures with great success, and considers this part of his practice extremely fulfilling and gratifying.

Laser Hair Removal in San Francisco Explained


Laser Hair Removal is a gentle, long-lasting solution to unwanted body hair, and it can eliminate the need for shaving, tweezing or waxing.

The ideal candidate for laser hair removal has dark hair and light skin. While anyone can have laser hair removal in San Francisco, dark or tanned skin patients run a higher risk of experiencing pigmentation changes following the procedure. During laser hair removal, the laser targets the pigment located in the hair follicle and shaft. 

Light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle, and this energy is converted to heat which results in damage to the follicle. This damage causes delayed re-growth of the hair, and in most cases permanent destruction of many hair follicles. For most patients, the procedure is relatively painless. You may feel a tingling or stinging sensation during the treatment, but most people tolerate the procedure well.

San Francisco Plastic Surgeon Dr. Shahin Javaheri can help educate you about laser hair removal, so that you know what to expect before you decide to undergo the procedure.

San Francisco Tummy Tuck Procedure Explained


Abdominoplasty, more commonly referred to as a tummy tuck in San Francisco, is a surgical procedure where excess skin and fat is removed from the lower and middle abdomen and the muscles of the abdominal wall are tightened.

The best candidates for abdominoplasty in San Francisco have loose abdominal skin that has not responded to traditional weight loss methods. Women who have stretched their abdominal muscles and skin naturally through pregnancy and individuals who have experienced massive weight loss also make great candidates for the tummy tuck procedure.

During the procedure, your plastic surgeon is likely to make two incisions: The first long incision stretches from hipbone to hipbone just above your pubic area. The second incision is made to free your navel from the surrounding tissue, so that you skin can be separated from the abdominal wall and your vertical muscles revealed. Excess skin is removed before your abdominal muscles are pulled together, tightened, and then stitched into their new position.

The stronger your abdominal muscles, the faster you can expect your recovery period to progress. Most people return to work after two weeks, while others take three or four weeks to rest and recuperate.
