Why You Should Fall For Laser Hair Removal This Fall

Laser Hair Removal Chester, NJIf you feel like plucking, tweezing, waxing, and shaving may as well be your full-time job, then it may be time to pick a new hobby. With laser hair removal, Dr. Larry Weinstein can make you practically hair free in a matter of a few sessions (depending on the area). And with the cold weather here and your bikini safely stashed away until next year, we think that fall is one of the best times to consider getting laser hair removal.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

You may have heard about laser hair removal for the past decade or so but do you really know what it is? Laser hair removal works by using pulses of laser light to destroy the hair follicles. But because your body is full of millions of hair follicles, it can be hard for us to target all of them in just one session. Depending on your hair color and the location that we are targeting will help determine how many sessions you will need.

What Makes Fall Ideal?

Because you will have to get multiple sessions done to get rid of your hair, fall is the perfect time because you won’t have to worry about shaving in between each session. In fact, you can just let your hair grow in in-between. By starting your laser removal in the fall, we should be able to get rid of your hair just in time for bikini season next spring or summer; giving you enough time to kiss your razor goodbye for good.

In our book, anytime is a good time for you to get rid of excess unwanted hair, but fall is an exceptionally good time. Are you interested in learning a little bit more about hair removal? Contact our New Jersey office today and call us at 908-879-2222.


The 411 on Proportional Breast Augmentations

Breast Augmentation Chester NJOne common misconception that some patients have about a breast augmentation is that you either have to go big or go home, but here at Dr. Larry Weinstein’s office, he specializes in a form of breast augmentation to give patients minimally larger breasts. If you are worried about getting a breast augmentation because you want to make sure that you look proportionate, then let’s take a closer look at proportional breast augmentations.

What’s a Proportional Breast Augmentation?

Do you have a dream of just going up one cup size, but you’re scared to get a breast augmentation because you’re worried that you will go up two or three cup sizes? If so, then a proportional breast augmentation may be the secret for you. During this type of breast augmentation, Dr. Weinstein will use smaller sized breast implant to help you jump from an A cup to a B Cup or a B cup to a C cup.

Why Does Dr. Weinstein Do Them?

Not all surgeons offer proportional breast augmentations. One of Dr. Weinstein’s goals is to ensure that patients feel comfortable with their results which is why he has chosen to provide this type of augmentation option. Dr. Weinstin knows that it’s your body and he just wants to help you magnify it and make it that much better; no matter how small the implants are.

During your initial consultation with Dr. Weinstein, he will go over all of your breast augmentation options to help you decide which option is going to give you the best results possible. If you are interested in learning about a proportional breast augmentation or if you want to learn about all of the other options that we have, contact our Chester office today and give us a call at 908-879-2222.


When You Don’t Want It to Wave Back: What to Know About A Brachioplasty

Brachioplasty Chester, NJIf you’re practicing your Miss America wave, but have noticed that your arm fat is waving back, then it may be time to take matters into your own hands (or rather, into Dr. Larry Weinstein’s hands). With a brachioplasty, we can perform a combination of liposuction and a lift to help you get rid of excess, unwanted fat and skin on your upper arms. But what is there to know about the actual procedure itself? Let’s take a closer look.

What Is the Procedure Like?

When you come in for surgery, we will prep you, sedate you, and then bring you into the surgical room. During an arm liposuction procedure, we will make a tiny incision in the targeted area. Once the incision has been made, a thin cannula will be inserted into the area. Here at our office, we offer three different types of liposuction to help get rid of arm fat.

  • Traditional liposuction: During this type of liposuction, we will scrape off the fat and then suction it out with the cannula. The only problem with traditional liposuction is that it’s usually used to treat larger areas which make our other options sometimes more suitable.
  • Tumescent Liposuction: With tumescent liposuction, Dr. Weinstein will inject an anesthetic into the tissue beforehand which results in less swelling and bruising afterward.
  • Ultrasound and Laser Liposuction: Both of these forms of liposuction liquefy the fat rather than scrape it. And because they use a small cannula, they are typically less invasive than the other forms of liposuction.
  • Once the cannulas have been removed, we will then use sutures to stitch up the incision site and you will be sent to recover for 1-2 hours. Afterward, you will be sent home to heal and rest at home.

Going through any sort of surgical procedure can be a little unnerving if you’ve never done it before. However, if you decide to undergo a brachioplasty, we will be there to help talk you through the procedure and guide you through the recovery process. If you want to learn more about this procedure, contact our Chester office today and give us a call at 908-879-2222.


How to Prevent Your Facelift Scars From Turning Into Something Scary

Facelift Morristown NJOther than answer your door to some spooky trick or treaters on Halloween night, nothing is quite as scary as looking in the mirror after a facelift only to see a bunch of visible stars. Although Dr. Larry Weinstein makes it, so facelift scars are as concealed as possible by the hairline or behind the ears, there are still some things that you can do to prevent your scars from darkening in color and looking more noticeable if you pull your hair back.

Avoid the Sun

If you can, try to stay out of the sun while your scars are healing. The sun works to naturally darken the skin— especially scars— which can make them a lot more visible. If you have to be outside, make sure that you cover your scars in a thick layer of SPF and that you also wear a hat for an added layer of protection.

Use a Scar Cream

Another thing that you can do to make sure that your scars don’t get too dark is to apply a scar cream like Mederma which works to lighten scars from the inside out. Additionally, by applying a scar cream like Mederma, you can keep your skin moisturized which will prevent your scars from itching as they heal.

Avoid Picking

When you have a scar that’s healing after surgery, it can be itchy and just overall uncomfortable. Even though you may want to scratch and pick at your scar, make sure that you don’t touch it; the more you pick at it, the less likely it’s going to heal well an the more likely it will be more visible.

If you are worried about scarring after a facelift, just know that a little amount of scarring is inevitable and completely normal. To help reduce how visible your scars are, though, you can use the tips listed in this article.

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.


3 Things a Rhinoplasty Can and Cannot Do

Rhinoplasty  <meta property="og:title" content="Rhinoplasty | Nose Surgery | If you have always hated the shape, size, or overall appearance of your nose or if you have recently injured your nose, then you may have fantasies of getting a rhinoplasty from Dr. Larry Weinstein. But before you consider really learning more about this procedure, it’s good to know what a rhinoplasty can and cannot do. Let’s take a closer look.

It Can’t Give You Any Nose

A lot of patients think that when you get a rhinoplasty, you can get any nose that you want. And although you can show us pictures of similar features that you want in a nose, we won’t be able to mimic other people’s noses perfectly; we have to use your nose’s structures and integrity as the base. Then, from there, we can reshape it, and resize it if needed.

It Can Change Your Appearance

If you think about your facial structure, then you know just how front and center your nose sits on your face. So, if we go in and change your nose, it is going to change your entire facial appearance; even if we do a minimal nose job. That being said, it will change your appearance for the better so that you walk out of your final appointment feeling more confident than ever.

It Doesn’t Take Long

Usually, Dr. Weinstein performs rhinoplasties on an outpatient basis, and the entire procedure only takes about two hours max which means that you will be able to get in and out of surgery before you know it. Once you have been cleared to go home, we will send you home with a detailed list of recovery instructions and tips.

Knowing what a surgery can and cannot do will help you land on the right procedure for you. To learn more about rhinoplasties, schedule an appointment with Dr. Weinstein at our Chester office today and give us a call at 908-879-2222.
