Is it Too Late to Get Breast Implants Before Swimsuit Season?

Breast Augmentation  Chester NJWith summer just around the corner, it’s safe to say that you’re either eager to get into a bikini or you’re dreading it. If you’re feeling like the ladder due to sagging, drooping, or small breasts, then you may be considering getting a breast augmentation or breast lift from Dr. Larry Weinstein. But because a breast augmentation takes a little while to recover from, some of our patients want to know if there is still enough time to get this surgery before summer?

It Only Takes a Few Weeks to Recover

On average, patients get rid of swelling and see the full results from their breast augmentation after just a couple of weeks. And because summer is still over a month away, that gives you plenty of time to recover. Even if you decide you want to get a breast augmentation in the middle of July, it should only take you a couple of weeks until you can be in your swimsuit and the water showing off your newest additions.

Take Advantage of Recovery Time

One of the best ways to speed up your recovery so that you can get in your bikini with your new breasts is to really baby yourself during recovery. The more you rest, relax, and avoid things like heavy lifting or strenuous workouts, the more likely you are to have a fast recovery.

It’s never too late to get breast implants— especially from Dr. Larry Weinstein. If you are worried about not having enough recovery time before summer, schedule your breast consultation as soon as possible at our Chester office: 908-879-2222.


How to Spring Into Warmer Weather With Smoother Skin

Facial Rejuvenation Procedures Chester NJIf anti-aging skin care products just don’t seem to be doing the trick anymore, but you still want to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, then Dr. Larry Weinstein has several options for you. Whether you’re looking for something as simple as fillers or something a little more permanent like a facelift, we have several ways for you to spring into warmer weather with smoother, more youthful looking skin.

Facial Fillers

Facial fillers like Radiesse, Restylane, and Juvederm are popular for their ability to help temporarily fill in fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, cheeks, and nose without you having to undergo any surgery. And because they typically last in a year on average, there really isn’t’ much upkeep involved.

Botox

If the fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead and around your eyes are giving you grief, then Botox may be your number one go to. Botox is an injectable made from the ingredient botulinum toxin A. When injected into your facial muscles, Botox temporarily blocks your muscles from contracting and forming facial movements that make those wrinkles.

A Facelift

A facelift procedure can also be done to help you get rid of fine lines and wrinkles before the weather starts to heat up. During this surgical procedure, Dr. Larry Weinstein will tighten deep facial tissues and lift excess skin to give you a more youthful look. And because a facelift lasts longer than injectables, you won’t have to worry about much upkeep if any at all.

Warmer weather means more time spent outside with the one you love most. However, if you have fine lines and wrinkles that are making you feel self-conscious, you may not want to do much of anything at all. Luckily, with these three options, we can help you spring into warmer weather in no time. Contact our Chester office today to learn more: 908-879-2222.


3 Reasons to Consider a Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation Chester NJWhen it comes to breast augmentation surgery, Dr. Larry Weinstein sees patients for more than one reason. Although the most common goal for a patient to elect to get a breast surgery is hypomastia or when they feel that their breasts are too small, there are a few other reasons why patients opt for this surgery as well.

Asymmetry

In a perfect world everything on our bodies would be symmetrical, but since that rarely happens, it’s no wonder that some women have asymmetrical breasts. And although many women have asymmetrical breasts that are hard to see with the naked eye, other patients lack of symmetry is a bit more obvious.

Postpartum Involution

A woman’s body goes through vast changes both during and after pregnancy. Not only does your stomach grow to a level you never thought you’d see but your breasts can also go through these changes. Sometimes after pregnancy, women suffer from a breast condition called postpartum involution.

Corrective Surgery

Another reason why patients opt to get a breast augmentation is to fix past problems with breast augmentation. If you had a botched breast job, need yours replaced, or just weren’t happy with the previous surgeon you saw, Dr. Larry Weinstein can give you the corrective surgery you’ve wanted to get.

If you suffer from asymmetrical breast, postpartum involution, or want to correct any issues following surgery, then Dr. Larry Weinstein can help. During your initial consultation, we will perform a brief physical examination and discuss all of your options. If you have any questions at any point during your entire breast augmentation procedure— from consultation to recovery— we are your source for all information.

The 411Male Breast Reduction Surgery

Male Breast Reduction  Chester, NJIt used to be that there was a stigma surrounding anyone who elected to get plastic surgery— especially men. However, according to a study published by The American Society for Plastic Surgeons, 40% of breast reduction surgeries done are done on males. Even though male breast reduction surgery may sound embarrassing, it can do wonders for your self-esteem and appearance. Let’s take a closer look at this surgery and why you may want to consider it.

What is a Male Breast Reduction?

A male breast reduction surgery is done on males— of most ages— who suffer from a condition called gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is a condition caused by hormones in men primarily either going through puberty or middle-aged and causes them to form fatty breast tissue. During a male breast reduction surgery, Dr. Larry Weinstein will remove this fatty breast tissue and any excess skin, to give you a flatter, more masculine looking chest in the process.

Why Is It Worth It?

For many boys who get gynecomastia during puberty, it should go away, and their chest should flatten by the time they turn 20. For middle-aged men, gynecomastia may also clear up on its own. If, however, your self-esteem is suffering because of gynecomastia and you just can’t seem to catch a break, then it is worth considering. Remember that your self-esteem is where a lot of your self-worth stems from, and so the better your self-esteem is, the happier you are likely to feel.

Male breast reduction surgery is the best way to get rid of excess fatty breast tissue and give you a flatter chest. If you want to learn more about this surgical procedure or schedule a consultation, contact our Chester office today at 908-879-2222.


Does a Breast Lift Mean Smaller Breasts?

Breast lift Chester, New JerseyEverything should be in its place— unless you have been pregnant, breast fed, or recently lost a lot of weight, then your breasts may not exactly be in the place they should be in. And although your breasts may hang lower than they did before you had kids or lost weight, it doesn’t mean they have to stay that way. With a surgical breast lift from Dr. Larry Weinstein, he can lift your breasts to exactly where they should be— leaving you feeling like, once again, everything is back in its place.

One common misconception, however, that many patients have about breast lifts is that you will lose your breast size in the process— which isn’t something many women like to here. So, can you lose your breast size after a breast lift?

A Cup Size

In a study published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in a group of 20 women over the age of 47 who all had breast lifts, most of them found that after about five years after surgery, they lost a whole bra size. However, that same study also showed that women before surgery likely weren’t wearing the proper bra size because of the excess skin and sagginess of their breasts. In fact, the study concluded that although these women’s bra sizes did shrink, their bras fit better after surgery. In other words, no, your breasts won’t shrink after a breast lift, but your bras will fit better.

If your self-esteem is suffering because your breasts are bigger than they used to be, schedule a breast lift consultation with Dr. Larry Weinstein today at our Chester office: 908-879-2222.


Tummy Tuck Relieves Back Pain and Restores Urinary Continence

“Abdominoplasty has long been considered a cosmetic procedure, improving the shape of the abdomen by excess skin removal, liposuction, and rectus muscle plication. Performed chiefly on the postpartum and weight loss population, there have been reports of improvement in the functional symptoms of back pain and incontinence following abdominoplasty with rectus plication, but there has been no prospective multicenter study to investigate the issue.”
