Want to Undergo Eye Tuck Surgery? What You Can Expect from Your Initial Consultation

Eyelid Surgery Morristown NJWhether you have dark circles under your eyes because of age, genetics, or just the stresses of life, they can definitely damage your self-esteem. Even though fillers and Botox have been done to get rid of those dark circles, nothing is quite as effective as eye tuck or blepharoplasty. During this surgical procedure, Dr. Larry Weinstein will remove excess fat, muscle, and skin from the lower eyelids to help correct puffy bags under your eyes and make you look more youthful in the process. Much like with any surgery that Dr. Weinstein offers, before we even schedule your surgical date we will have you come into our office for a consultation.

What’s a Consultation?

A consultation appointment is designed to help Dr. Weinstein determine if a blepharoplasty is going to be a good procedure for you. Additionally, a consultation also gives you the opportunity to ask questions and have any of your concerns addressed.

What Will Happen During My Consultation?

Just like any pre-surgical consultation, your blepharoplasty consultation is very important. Not only will we look over your entire medical history but we will also look at what medications and vitamins you are taking.

After we go over your medical history and medications, Dr. Weinstein will then examine your eyelids, eyes, eye function, eyelid fat, and test your gross vision. If you wear contact lenses or glasses, make sure that you wear them.

Following your examination, Dr. Weinstein will discuss your goals and expectations, whether or not you want just the lower eyelids operated on or if you want the uppers done as well. During this time, don’t hesitate to ask any questions to Dr. Weinstein or his staff about this surgery.

If you are sick of having large bags under your eyes, then a blepharoplasty may be the right procedure for you. To learn more about blepharoplasties, schedule a consultation at our Chester office today and give us a call at 908-879-2222.

3 Things You Never Knew About Fillers

Facial Fillers Chester NJBefore Kylie Jenner came out in public sporting a new set of lips, you may not have been that familiar with lip fillers. As one of the most popular non- invasive procedures out there, fillers can be used for a variety of different things including adding volume to your lips and cheeks and helping soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, unless you’ve had fillers, you may not know much about them. Let’s take a closer look at three things you may not know about fillers.

Location Changes As You Age

As you age, your skin starts to lose collagen and elastin which can lead to sagginess, fine lines, and wrinkles. When this happens, Dr. Larry Weinstein will have to be a little more strategic when injecting fillers into your skin to really help both fill in fine lines and wrinkles and add more volume to certain parts of the skin. So, even though he can inject most 20-year-olds one way, if you are in your 50’s, he will have to use a few different techniques to help give you the best results.

Everybody Is Different

Just like with any procedure that Dr. Larry Weinstein does, it’s important to remember that everybody is different. And because everybody is different, that means that the type of filler we use on you, may not be good to use on your friend. It also means that everyone will get slightly different results including how long your fillers last for; for some patients, their fillers will last an entire year whereas others will need to have touch ups done a lot sooner.

They’re Not the Same As Botox

One thing that you may be surprised to learn is that Botox is not a filler, but it’s an injectable. Fillers work to actually fill in fine lines and wrinkles, whereas Botox works on a deeper level to stop your facial muscles from contracting which helps to soften them in the process.

Now that you know a little bit more about fillers, it’s time to schedule your consultation with Dr. Larry Weinstein at our Chester office today. Call us at 908-879-2222.
