3 Things to Consider When Getting a Breast Augmentation

Breast AugmentationBeing called “flat chested” isn’t exactly a term that most girls like to be known for. However, if you fall into this category and are wanting to make a change, consider getting a breast augmentation done by Dr. Larry Weinstein. During this surgery, Dr. Weinstein will surgically place implants under or on top of your existing breast muscles to give you a more prominent look. During this surgery, however, you do have a few options to consider getting done in conjunction with a breast augmentation. Read on to learn more.

Tissue Expansion

If you are particularly petite, then Dr. Larry Weinstein may recommend that we do a tissue expansion surgery before your breast augmentation. This procedure is done to help loosen and expand the skin around the breasts so that the implants will be sufficiently covered. By placing a small balloon in your breasts and slowly inflating it over a few months, your skin tissue will expand— leaving you with fewer stretchmarks and more coverage over your implants.

Breast Lift

This type of surgery can be done at the same time as your augmentation. If you have noticed that your breasts don’t sit as high on your chest as they used to, Dr. Larry Weinstein can perform a breast lift to lift and tighten them. By getting rid of excess skin and lifting your breasts higher, you will look more youthful.

Nipple Reduction

If you have large, droopy, or long nipples that make you feel extremely self-conscious, Dr. Larry Weinstein may be able to perform a “nipple reduction surgery” at the same time as your augmentation. During this surgery, your nipple will be cut, so that is decreased in size and shape.

Before you get a breast augmentation done, it’s nice to know that you have a few other surgeries you can do in conjunction with it. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, contact Dr. Larry Weinstein today!

 

 

 

 


2 Things to Look for When Choosing a Surgeon

Whether you’re getting fillers or a facelift, you have a variety of decisions to make— including what type of procedure to go with, the results you want, and most importantly, what surgeon you are going to choose. Even though websites offering coupons or group deals to for cosmetic surgery procedures may sound appealing, unless they are being administered by a board certified surgeon like Dr. Larry Weinstein, you run a huge risk. So, how can you ensure that you are going with a surgeon you can trust? Read on to learn more.

Board Certification

The best thing you can look for when choosing a surgeon is to find one that is board certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery. Board certification means that the doctor:

  • Sticks to a strict code of ethics.
  • Has completed five years of surgical training with a minimum of two years in just plastic surgery.
  • Only operates in approved and accredited hospitals and clinics.
  • Maintains standards and patient safety innovations while fulfilling continuing medical education requirements.
  • Is trained and has experienced in all plastic surgery procedures.

Look At Reviews

In this day and age, it can be almost foolish not to use the Internet to research the surgeon you are going with. Most websites offer the ability to look at reviews of the surgeon you are interested in. If the surgeon has mediocre or negative reviews, make sure to cancel your appointment with them and schedule one with a surgeon who has positive reviews.

If you are looking for a surgeon you can trust, look no further than Dr. Larry Weinstein himself. Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and with years of experience performing procedures like breast implants, rhinoplasties, abdominoplasties, and more, you know that you are in the best of hands.

Trend Alert: Why Choose Fat for Face

As one of the last things you want to be called, “fat” doesn’t necessarily come with positive connotations. You try to get rid of it, you try not to eat it, and you try not to use it when describing your significant other. However, as one of the most popular ways to add volume to your face and body, fat grafting is trending in a big way— getting rid of the negative connotations associated with fat in the process. Rising 13% for minimally invasive fat injection procedures alone in 2016, fat grafting for your face may be something to consider. This article will discuss fat grafting for your face, and why it’s so popular. Read on to learn more.

No Chemicals

If you try to live a particularly organic lifestyle and you watch what you put into your body, then you may not be a fan of fillers and Botox. However, because fat grafting involves using your fat to fill in the fine lines and wrinkles on your face, you won’t have to worry about the use of any chemicals in the process— leaving you with more peace of mind.

Longevity

Another reason why more and more people are using fat grafting over other facial procedures is that it lasts longer than things like fillers. In fact, depending on how well your face takes the fat, results can be permanent. Just like with any facial procedure, however, remember that fat grafting won’t get rid of your body’s natural aging process.

Instant Results

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeries, patients are consistently happy with the instant results they receive from getting fat injections. Similar to the results they receive from getting a facelift, fat injections will make you look noticeably younger without you having to undergo an extensive surgery.

If you are going to do one trendy thing in 2017, consider getting fat grafting done by Dr. Larry Weinstein. As a safe, easy, and effective process, you can add more volume to your face as you get rid of fine lines and wrinkles.

3 Benefits of Body Contouring With Liposuction

Liposuction has been around for decades, and it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. As one of the most popular and efficient ways to contour your body and get rid of stubborn fat, liposuction continues to give patients real results. If you are a healthy weight and have tried to get rid of stubborn fat without success, then you may be the perfect candidate for liposuction. From lasting results to a better self-esteem, this article will discuss three benefits of body contouring with liposuction. Read on to learn more.

Lasting Results

Unlike extreme dieting where patients gain the weight they lost back in just a week or two, liposuction will give you results that last. Because liposuction involves surgically scraping and then suctioning out the fat from your body, it reduces the number of fat cells you have. And, the smaller number of fat cells you have, the less likely it is that they will grow back. As long as you maintain a relatively strict diet and exercise plan, you shouldn’t gain back any of the fat that was removed during liposuction.

Fast Results

Another strong benefit of liposuction is the fact that you will get almost immediate results. Although you will have some inflammation immediately following the procedure, you will still notice a slimmer you. And once the swelling wears off after a few days, then you will see your results right away.

A Better Self Esteem

Yes, it is true that your self-esteem comes within…at least until you hit bikini season. After all, nothing can put a damper on your self-esteem more than getting into a bikini only to have a big belly, too much fat around your thighs, or love handles. Luckily, with the help of liposuction, you can get rid of that unwanted fat and feel more confident when you hit the pool this summer.

Liposuction continues to be one of the most effective ways of removing stubborn fat from areas such as your buttocks, thighs, abdomen, and arms. If you would like to get rid of your excess fat with liposuction, contact Dr. Larry Weinstein today.

 

 


How to Tighten Up Your Tush

liposuctionWith the holidays long behind us and the summer months quickly creeping up on us, it can seem overwhelming to think about getting into a bikini. Have you recently caught a glance of your tush in the mirror and noticed that it’s a bit saggier and jiggly than you’d care to admit? Luckily, you still have a few more months until you have to get into a swimsuit, so you still have time to tighten up your tush. From working out to getting liposuction, this article will discuss a few different ways that you can get a behind that will have all of your friends feeling jealous. Read on to learn more.

Work It Out

One of the best ways that you can tighten your tush is to do exercises to target those muscles. In addition to doing cardio— which will help you lose weight— make sure that you are doing plenty of squats, weighted squats, lunges, leg extensions, and leg presses. If you aren’t sure if you are doing any of these exercises correctly, ask for some instruction from a team member at your local gym— the last thing you want to do is pull a muscle or strain anything.

Eat Correctly

Unfortunately, if you want to get a tighter tush before summer, you are going to have to put down those cookies, soda, and hamburgers, and try eating lean proteins and more veggies. The leaner your diet is, the leaner your physique will be. And, as one of the first parts of your body where you will lose weight, your tush will certainly look slimmer before you know it.

Consider Liposuction

In addition to working out and eating correctly, you may want to consider getting liposuction from Dr. Larry Weinstein. By surgically removing the fat from your tush, you will get results that you otherwise wouldn’t have with just diet and exercise alone. And, because it’s still springtime, you will have plenty of time to recover from surgery before you hit the pool or beach.

It can make you feel a lot of unnecessary pressure to think about having to get into a bikini in just a few months. However, by using a combination of exercise, diet, and liposuction, you can get a tighter tush than ever before.

3 Ways to Prepare for Tissue Expansion Surgery

Plastic SurgeryDepending on the size of your body and the cosmetic surgical procedure you would like to have done, you may not have enough skin to cover the area. For instance, if you are petite and would like to get a breast augmentation, you may not have enough skin to cover the implants. Luckily, with a procedure called tissue expansion, Dr. Larry Weinstein can expand your skin so that it properly covers and protects the surgical site. To help you prepare for this surgery, we have created a brief guide with three easy tips. Read on to learn more.

  1. Stop Smoking

Before you undergo surgery from Dr. Larry Weinstein, you should stop smoking at least two weeks before your surgery. Smoking decreases your body’s ability to heal after surgery which puts you at an increased risk of complications. If you need help quitting smoking, contact a local hotline or reach out to our staff for additional support.

  1. Avoid Blood Thinners

If you are on any blood thinning medication, make sure to notify Dr. Weinstein in your initial consultation. Blood thinners can make the surgical process a lot more complicated and can increase your recovery time. If you take medications like Ibuprofen or aspirin on a regular basis, you will be instructed to stop taking it for at least a few weeks before surgery.

  1. Get a Ride Home

Typically, Dr. Larry Weinstein can start the tissue expansion project at the same time as your breast augmentation surgery. However, because these are two fairly invasive surgeries, you will be under anesthesia which means that you won’t be able to drive home. Before you come in for surgery, make sure that you schedule a ride home from either a friend or family member. If you don’t have anyone to pick you up, let us know beforehand, and we can arrange for a taxi service.

Before you get a tissue expansion surgery, make sure that you stop smoking and taking blood thinners, and that you arrange for a ride home after surgery. To learn more about this surgery and more, contact Dr. Larry Weinstein’s office today!
