Injectables VS. Fillers: How to Differentiate Between the Two

BotoxIf you are out talking with friends and they are getting the terms “injectables” and “fillers” mixed up with each other, it is not something that is uncommon. If you yourself aren’t familiar with the distinctions between these two, then you are not alone. Because fillers are in fact injected into your skin, they could easily be perceived as being “injectables” but since injectables don’t actual fill in the skin, the same can’t be same for them. In order to be better informed and to know which thing you should seriously consider, read on.

Injectables
Things like Botox and Xeomin are two of the most popular injectables on the plastic/cosmetic surgery market. Often mistaken for “fillers” injectables actually don’t work by filling in the lines and wrinkles around your face. In fact, injectables like Botox and Xeomin are comprised of different types of botulinum which when injected into the muscles in your face— primarily the forehead and eyes— they cause the muscles to relax and soften, which in turn gives you the temporary appearance of having no lines or wrinkles. Typically lasting around three to six months, depending on the patient, injectables are both affordable and effective.

Fillers
Fillers are what most people refer to injectables as. However, they work completely different. Fillers are usually used on the face from the nose down in order to literally fill in the fine lines and wrinkles you may be experiencing due to old age or other factors. By taking a syringe filled with fillers like Restylane or Juvederm, Dr. Larry Weinstein can literally fill in your wrinkles and give you a more youthful looking appearance. Also temporary, fillers tend to last a bit longer than injectables— up to  a year in some instances.

The next time you’re having a conversation with your girlfriends about getting injectables or fillers, come to the table a little bit more informed by using the information above. If you would like to schedule an appointment to get either fillers, injectables, or both, contact Dr. Larry Weinstein’s office today!

How to Dress Your Breasts for Success

breast surgeryWhen it comes to undergoing breast enhancement surgery, nothing can feel quite as exciting as turning your body into something you’ve always wanted. Larger breasts can not only make you feel more confident but help you get the look that you’ve always wanted. And although getting larger and perkier breasts may encourage you to dress a bit sexier, it’s important to remember to maintain appropriate dress codes while at work or in a more conservative setting. Read on to learn more about how you can cater your wardrobe to your new breasts.

Watch for Low-Cut Blouses
Yes, showing a little bit of cleavage might be fun for a weekend night or a day out with friends. However, when in the workplace or somewhere like church, it’s important to dress a little more modestly and not show any cleavage. Although you might be tempted to show off your new assets, remember that there is both a time and place for that, and showing cleavage in the workplace is not appropriate.

Watch for Tight Fitting Clothes
Remember that a shirt that fit you tightly around your chest prior to surgery is going to fit you even more snugly around your chest after surgery. Not only can extremely form fitting clothing be uncomfortable but it can also be inappropriate for the workplace as well. As a suggestion, get rid of your form fitting tops before you have surgery and buy ones that fit a little more conservatively, that way you won’t be tempted to wear them after your surgical procedure.

Get the Right Fitting Bra
In addition to avoiding low-cut blouses and tight fitting tops, it’s also important to purchase a bra that fits you well. For instance, if your breasts are practically falling out of your bra then they will likely be falling out of your shirt which can cause for an uproar in the office. Additionally, if your bra is too small or too sheer, you may be exposing more of your new breasts than you care to share. Go bra shopping around a month after your surgery— once the swelling has died down— in order to get a bra that will fit you comfortably.

Getting breast enhancement surgery can make you look and feel like a new woman. However, it’s important to maintain a professional appearance while in the workplace or in a conservative setting like church. By following the tips above, you shouldn’t have  problem.
