Scars: Definition Plastic surgery is all about modifying the shape. As a matter of fact, the word “plastic” comes from the Greek “plastikos,” which means form. In order to modify the shape of the face or body, we often have to make incisions into the skin to either remove excess skin or access layers beneath it. When we suture the skin back together, the healing process begins. First, the two sides are joined by a glue-like material that the body forms, called a fibrin clot. We then have a period of inflammation and proliferation that allows microscopic blood vessels [...]
Dr. Farhad Rafizadeh enjoys an extensive experience in breast surgery in Morristown New Jersey. He can offer the safest and most efficient procedures to patients who make the trip to Morristown to see him.

The blood supply going to the nipple is now mostly coming from the surrounding skin. To do a breast lift, one [...]

We got our phone and internet back in Morristown and couldn’t be happier. COVID precautions are ongoing
There is nothing like a tough time to make one appreciate all the conveniences that we enjoy today. We had no electricity at home for a week and no phone and internet in the office. We only communicated with the world using our iPhones. Now everything is back to normal and that makes me happy. Even though the situation is improving in New Jersey especially in Morristown, we continue taking all the social distancing precautions and still ask patients to call us from their cars before walking in the office. We still don't want to have more than one [...]

Dr. Rafizadeh uses multipple breast reduction techniques in Morristown N.J. There are essentially 5 different ways to reduce a breasts depending on the size, composition of the breast tissue, and how much of an uplift is desired by the patient.

Reducing skin excess will [...]
