Can You Enhance Your Facial Fillers?

Getting facial fillers like Juvederm and Restylane can help transform the bottom portion of your face into a more youthful looking you. However, are there ways in which you can enhance the effects and appearance of your facial fillers? Read on to learn more.

In order to visually enhance your lips and the area around your mouth after you receive facial fillers like Juvederm and Restylane, you can use makeup. For the wrinkles around your mouth, simply use a shade of concealer that’s one shade lighter than your skin and gently apply it to the skin around your mouth. By lightening up this area and blending it in with the rest of your makeup, you can help to give your skin a softer looking appearance.

When looking to accentuate your lip fillers, try using a combination of a lip liner, lipstick, and lip gloss. Start by using a lip liner. The lip liner will give your lips the extra overall enhanced look. Then apply a shade of lipstick that matches the lip liner— this will help to give your lips the color that you desire. Next, top it off with a lip gloss— the lip gloss will help to accentuate the plumpness and appearance of your lips.

Get Them Done More Frequently
If you wait until the last possible moment to get your lips and mouth redone, then you aren’t necessarily getting that enhanced look all year round. To get the best look possible and to really show off your sexy pout, make sure that you schedule an appointment with Dr. Weinstein as soon as you start to see your fillers starting to wear off in a drastic way.

When it comes down to it, there is no medication or medical enhancement that you can do to enhance your facial fillers. However, by applying makeup and getting your lips done more frequently, you can help to visually enhance the appearance of your lips without too much of a fuss.

3 Things About Breast Reconstruction Surgery

Breast reconstruction surgery is designed to treat women who have suffered from breast cancer and have had to have a mastectomy. Once your original breast has been removed, or if portions of your breast were removed, a surgeon will then go into the breast in order to try to reconstruct it. Read on to learn more about breast reconstruction surgery.

breast reconstruction1. There Are Two Surgical Options
Did you know that when considering getting breast reconstruction surgery that you actually have two different options available to you? The first, and most common form of breast reconstruction surgery, involves using an implant or device in order to get the breast back to its normal appearance. The other form of breast reconstruction surgery is called autologous breast reconstruction surgery which uses the body’s natural cells and tissues in order to get the breasts back to their natural shape, size, and appearance.

2. You May Lose Sensation In Your Breasts
One of the biggest downsides to breast reconstruction surgery is the fact that you may lose all sensation in your breasts. Things that used to either spark arousal, pain, or discomfort may not do the same thing for you anymore. However, your surgeon will try to ensure that you can at least feel some sort of sensation in your breasts after the surgical procedure.

3. Incision Sites Are Likely Visible
Unlike breast enhancement surgery where there are typically no incision sites or scarring visible, breast reconstructive surgery is different. By making incisions typically around the front part of the breast around the nipple, it can be hard for surgeons to avoid any sort of visible incisions or scarring.

Breast reconstructive surgery is both a scary and exciting. By understanding the three things above, you can help to go into your surgical procedure with more confidence and a better understanding of what to expect. Get your breasts back and start to feel like your pre-cancer self with breast reconstruction surgery. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, contact Dr. Weinstein’s office today!
