What is Emsella?
Urinary incontinence is an issue that — for many reasons — is usually associated with women. However, that doesn't mean that many men don't suffer from this problem every day. Moradi M.D. Cosmetic Surgery in San Diego, CA utilizes the Emsella platform to resolve the issues of our patients experiencing issues with urinary incontinence. It involves a noninvasive treatment, performed by Dr. Amir Moradi, that can result in greater control of the bladder and a significant strengthening of the pelvic floor. By making use of electromagnetic stimulation, the Emsella technology is able to increase neuromuscular stability, thereby reducing urinary incontinence.
"I have been going to Dr. Moradi's office for many years. He along with his staff are so welcoming and provide many wonderful services. Recently I started seeing Becca and she is wonderful! I highly recommend their office."- C.D. / Yelp / Apr 10, 2019
"Besides a beautiful office and high tech procedures, Dr. Moradi’s practice is much more than this. Moradi MD is also involved in many clinical research studies, has achieved many rewards for excellence and he is a top plastic surgeon in his field. He has a wonderful, caring staff that are always welcoming, friendly and responsive to concerns before and after any procedure, no matter how small.Having been a patient of Dr. Moradi’s for a least 16 years now, and as I turn 69, I am still excited about the natural and healthy look he has helped me maintain as I move into a more mature self.Besides his experienced Botox injections, I finally too the plunge and am extremely happy with the filler applied in my sunken temples and then the next year was bold enough to have filler in my cheekbones. What amazing results the filler, when applied expertly, has made to the soft fullness in my face. Additionally I had not known this but Botox can also be used on the neck bands giving a beautiful neck line which I have also been so pleased with the results.My all time favorite is the LaseMD. This laser treatment removes dark spots, evens skin tone, plumps up my skin and stimulates collagen. I always purchase a package of three treatments and go when it is convenient for me. Face, hands and going to get brave and do my chest later.When I was considering doing this review I not only wanted to comment on the excellence of everyone at Moradi MD but also mention the aesthetic eye to form and balance Dr. Moradi has when evaluating and treating his patients. He also fixed my crooked smile with a bit of Botox and I was surprised at the wonderful results. No more crooked smile in family photos or me not smiling at all to hide this defect.What ever your aesthetic concerns are, you can be assured of the support and care you receive as a patient of the Moradi experience."- J.F. / Yelp / Nov 22, 2020
"I’ve been Dr. Moradi patient for couple years. I don’t trust other Dr. but him with my face. I also have done laser for face treatment I think it’s called Moradi Laser Package and face laser hair removal this year with Becca, she’s absolutely my favourite. She’s very professional, honest, and friendly. I felt very comfortable doing other sensitive treatments with her like I think it’s called Femm 360 machine. I trust her option blindly as I know she’ll be telling the truth if I need this treatment or not. I’ve tried last year a face chemical peeling with Magdalene, she was awesome. I hope this review helps. Thanks"- N.C. / Yelp / Oct 15, 2020
"My husband and I get regular facials. Service is excellent. Estheticians are knowledgeable, professional and caring. We always leave with glowing skin."- A.M. / Facebook / Oct 01, 2020
"I visited Dr. Moradi last month for my first time (ever) for preventative BOTOX. I had heard such great things about Dr. Moradi (I am originally from North County SD) and decided to make the trip to his office. It was well worth it. He made me feel so comfortable and his staff was amazing as well. I didn’t have to ask for numbing cream which I know is a common concern for many individuals. Also, due to this being a preventative procedure, the soft lines between my brows were used with the perfect amount of BOTOX. I am not "frozen" and the lines have dissipated greatly since my procedure, about 3 weeks ago now. I will be trying to make another appointment soon in order to fill the remaining forehead lines and possibly under eye circles. Thank you. Dr. Moradi and staff for your attention to detail and overall patient communication."- J.M. / Yelp / Mar 14, 2020

How is Emsella Performed?
Emsella is a chair that patients sit on fully clothed. There is no gown or alternative outfit required. Once you sit on the chair, you'll begin to feel contractions in your pelvis. This sensation is painless and, instead, described by many of our patients as a fluttering sensation. In fact, the contractions are so light, most people choose to read a book or have a conversation to pass the time. This slowly re-educates the muscles of your body how to function and strengthens your pelvic floor, granting you more control over your bladder. The treatment itself usually only takes around 30 minutes, making it perfect to schedule during a lunch break or a quick lull in your schedule.
What to Expect After an Emsella Treatment
Due to the treatment's noninvasive nature, there is no downtime or recovery associated with it. Patients can simply stand up, walk out the door, and go on with their daily lives. Noticeable improvements may be had after just one session, but it is usually recommended to come in once or twice a week for about 2 – 3 weeks before you'll notice the maximum benefits.
Between treatments, there are several other things you can do to improve the strength of your pelvic floor. For instance, you could reduce or eliminate caffeinated beverages from your diet, as well as foods that are natural diuretics. Additionally, scheduling regular bathroom breaks throughout your day can take some of the stress off of your shoulders.
