Body Contouring After Massive Weight Loss

Body Contouring After Massive Weight Loss Morristown, NJIf working out every day and eating better than you ever knew you could have helped you shed a lot of pounds then you must be ready to give yourself a few hundred high fives. If, however, it seems like your weight has started to plateau and you still have a few extra pounds that you would like to lose or some excess fat that you want to get rid of, then body contouring from Dr. Weinstein may be your next step.

What Is Body Contouring?

There are several different types of body contouring procedures but the one that Dr. Weinstein specializes in is liposuction. Despite what you may have heard your entire life about liposuction being used to help patients who have a significant amount of weight to lose, it’s actually best used on people who have an average of about 30 lbs to lose.

During your liposuction procedure, Dr. Weinstein will make some small incisions near the surgical site which will allow him to insert his cannula. After the incisions have been made, he will scrape off the excess fat from your body, suction it out with a vacuum-like device called a cannula, stitch you up, and then send you on your road toward recovery.

Why Is Body Contouring Helpful After Massive Weight loss?

Sometimes, no matter how thin you are, it can be hard to lose some extra weight. If seeing the scale stay at the same number week after week is starting to feel like you’re banging your head against the wall, then you may need a little help. As a popular and effective procedure, liposuction can help contour your body a little more and help you reach your ideal weight.

If you’re ready to really get rid of that excess weight even after massive weight loss, then schedule your liposuction consultation at our Chester office today and give us a call at 908-879-2222.

Celeb Sightings: How to Get A Star-Worthy Body

body contouringWhen it comes to our obsession with the rich and famous, it can be easy to get caught up in the he said she said of the celebrity world. From multi-million dollar homes to expensive dresses and tuxedos worn on the red carpet, there is a lot going on in Hollywood that is foreign to the rest of us. However, when it comes to having a celebrity body, you don’t just have to dream of having one. In fact, you can turn that dream into a reality by visiting Dr. Larry Weinstein’s office.

Perky Breasts

You aren’t going to see a female celebrity in a swimsuit or shooting a nude movie scene unless they have some perky breasts to show off. If your breasts are a bit saggy either due to old age or breast feeding, then Dr. Larry Weinstein might recommend that you get both a breast lift and implant at the same time. During this surgical procedure, Dr. Weinstein will make some surgical incisions around your breasts and will resculpt your breast tissue in order to lift them up and will also insert an implant into your breasts as well. Both of these procedures will give you the celeb worthy breasts that you desire.

Tighter Stomach

If you have loose skin due to having too many kids or if you just don’t have that hott figure that you’ve always wanted, then you might be the perfect candidate for an abdominoplasty. After all, if you really want to look like one of your favorite celebrities then you don’t want to be caught dead with a belly. During an abdominoplasty, Dr. Weinstein will likely recommend getting liposuction as well in order to remove any excess fat. Once the fat has been removed, he will then lift and tighten the skin around your abdomen in order to provide you with a younger and tighter looking stomach— something that any celebrity would be happy to sport at the beach.

Get a better looking and celebrity worthy body by getting a breast lift, breast augmentation, and an abdominoplasty. To learn more about these surgical procedures or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Larry Weinstein, contact our office today!

 

 

After Abdominoplasty Workouts

Abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure in which Dr. Larry Weinstein will surgically lift and tighten the muscles and skin around the abdominal wall— leaving you with a tighter looking abdomen and a  more slender looking you. Once you have properly recovered from your abdominoplasty, it’s safe to remember that diet and exercise are still your best friends. Read on to learn more about after abdominoplasty workouts and what is considered safe for you.

Taking Time Off

tummy tuckIf you are a gym rat, hearing Dr. Larry Weinstein tell you that you have to wait around 6 weeks to head back to the gym might sound like a death sentence, but giving your body and abdomen the ample time it needs to recuperate after surgery will save you in the long haul. Remember that the more you rest and relax at first, the better off you will be down the road.

Slowly Dive In

The best way to get back into your workout routine after your six weeks of time off and approval from Dr. Larry Weinstein, is to take it slow. Although you might want to run a few miles and join a cross fit class, remember that your body has been without exercise for two months and needs to slowly dive in. As a suggestion, try getting on the elliptical, stationary bike, or treadmill for about 15-20 minutes on the first day and then slowly amp up the time by 5 minutes every day after that. That way you are still getting a good workout but you aren’t pushing yourself too hard at first.

Ease into Crunches

After you have been doing steady cardio for about a week or two, now you can slowly ease yourself into crunches or abdominal workouts. However, because your muscles were moved and essentially tightened during your abdominoplasty, they might be a little bit sore at first. Take your time and do a little bit more everyday or when you can.

Recovering from any sort of surgery, especially abdominoplasty, is of utmost importance. And when you get the approval to head back to the gym, it’s good to follow the above tips so that you don’t overexert yourself or cause your body any sort of damage. To learn more about abdominoplasty recovery, contact Dr. Larry Weinstein’s office today!

 

Maintaining Your Post Surgery Body

If you’ve recently undergone weight loss surgery like liposuction or had a tummy tuck, the work doesn’t stop there. Although many patients believe that surgery is the cure-all for weight loss, that just isn’t the case. In order to maintain your post surgery body, try the following tips.

Post Surgery BodyDiet
A diet full of low-fat and high protein foods, will not only help you to feel healthier but it will help you to keep any added weight off. Make sure that you aren’t skipping meals and that you’re eating a diet that’s full of lean protein like chicken and turkey, whole grains like oatmeal and quinoa, and vegetables like kale, yams, and broccoli. Remember though, that it is okay to splurge every once in a while. Whether you have a sweet tooth or a salty one, it’s okay to indulge in things like doughnuts or movie theater popcorn every once in a while. Just make sure that you don’t go overboard and limit yourself to small servings.

Exercise
As your main way to stay toned up, exercise is your bestfriend. Whether you prefer to run, lift weights, or participate in a workout class like cycling, there are different workout options for virtually eveyr personality type. Just make sure that you’re at least working out for 30 minutes, three times a week.

If you’re short on time and can’t seem to fit in three 30 minute workout sessions, try to do a brief Interval workout such as the 7-minute workout. Designed with 12 different workouts, in just 7 minutes, this scientifically proven workout routine will help you to stay healthy and keep off any extra weight.

Motivation
Finding the motivation to stay fit can sometimes require more work than doing the actual work. On days when you feel like eating a milkshake or skipping the gym, remind yourself of how much work and pain it took to get to this place, and that it can easily go away.

If you’ve recently undergone surgery and want to maintain your healthy physique, make sure you have a healthy balance of positive motivate, exercise, and diet.

Top 4 Liposuction Myths — Busted!

image-smartlipoBeing one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures, word about liposuction continuously spreads like wildfire from every potential patient to another. Because of this, it could be so easy for information to turn into misinformation. Here are some of the most common liposuction myths that you still might believe to be true.

Liposuction resolves health conditions.

Many believe that because liposuction removes unwanted fat from the body, it can also rid one of their current medical conditions, particularly of heart disease. Although it can provide minor changes in the triglycerides and cholesterol levels of an individual, the procedure is not entirely a treatment for such diseases.

Liposuction is only meant for women.

This is a common misconception, knowing that most patients who consider liposuction are females. There might be more women who want to achieve a more attractive body contour, which is why they usually prefer liposuction than men. However, it is totally possible for men to have excess fat in their body and wish to remove stubborn fat through liposuction as well.

Liposuction can eliminate obesity.

Before even considering the procedure, every potential patient must know that liposuction is not a treatment for obesity. While the surgery is done to remove significant fat tissue in particular parts of the body, its main purpose is not to stop a person from being obese. Although this is so, a liposuction is often a good motivation for a patient to start maintaining an ideal weight through proper dieting and exercise.

Liposuction results are permanent.

This assumption could be true, but only if the patient is determined to maintain the results. This can be possible by applying steady changes to one’s lifestyle through regular exercise and healthy dieting. However, if the patient fails to make certain lifestyle changes, there is a possibility for fat to accumulate in other parts of the body eventually.
