How to Prepare for Tissue Expansion

Breast Augmentation Chester NJWhen it comes to breast augmentation or breast reconstruction surgery, there is one step in the procedure that many women are unfamiliar with: tissue expansion. Tissue expansion is a surgical procedure that is used to help expand the skin before a surgery. For instance, if you have just undergone a mastectomy, you may not have enough skin for a breast augmentation software. A tissue expansion surgery helps slowly expand your skin to make room for the implant so that there aren’t stretch marks.

Typically for this surgery, we use a silicone balloon expander and insert it under your skin near the area that needs to be repaired. Gradually and over time, we will fill the balloon with saline or carbon dioxide to help the skin stretch and grow. And although Dr. Larry Weinstein will perform this surgical procedure, there are a few things that you can do to prepare.

Stop Smoking

If you smoke, Dr. Larry Weinstein will probably encourage you to quit at least a few weeks before your surgery. Smoking slows down your body’s ability to heal quickly and fight off infection after surgery.

Fast Beforehand

Depending on the type of anesthesia that Dr. Weinstein uses during this procedure will help us determine whether or not you need to fast beforehand. Typically, we will ask patients to fast for about 12 hours before surgery if we use general anesthesia but we will give you detailed instructions before.

Arrange for a Ride

Because you will be sedated during your surgery, you won’t be able to drive afterward. Please arrange for a ride home from your surgery or ask us to call you a ride service— that way you can get home safely after surgery.

If you need to undergo a tissue expansion surgery as part of your surgical procedure, you know you’re in good hands with Dr. Larry Weinstein. To learn more about this surgery or to schedule a consultation, call our Chester office today at 908.879.2222.

3 Ways To Spoil The Dad In Your Life This Father’s Day

Male Breast Reduction Morristown, NJIf you got spoiled on Mother’s Day, then you know that you have to go big for the father in your life. Whether you’re looking to gift your own dad or the father of your children something unique this Father’s Day, we have got you covered.  Rather than gifting the same old golf shirt or tie this year, try something new like a procedure from Dr. Larry Weinstein.

Gynecomastia Surgery

The last thing you want to say to the father in your life is, “Hey, did you know have man boobs?” But man boobs may actually be due to a medical condition called gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is a hormonal condition that causes men to form breast tissue and affects around 65% of adult men at some point in their lives. During gynecomastia surgery, Dr. Larry Weinstein will remove excess tissue, tighten any skin, and reposition the nipples if needed— leaving the patient with a more masculine appearance.

Botox

Although Botox has primarily been popular amongst middle-aged women, it is gaining more and more popularity among men of all ages as well. If your loved one has started to complain about the fine lines and wrinkles around their eyes and forehead, why not gift them with a Botox treatment from Dr. Larry Weinstein?

Fillers

One of the things that men often complain about when they start to age is having fine lines and wrinkles around their lips or beard line. With dermal fillers, Dr. Larry Weinstein can temporarily fill in these lines to give your loved one a smoother, more youthful looking appearance.

The best way to gift one of these procedures to the father in your life is to schedule a consultation for them and then pay for the service afterward. If you want to learn more about procedures for men, schedule a consultation with Dr. Larry Weinstein at our Chester office and call us today at 908-879-2222.
