How to Prevent Scary Scars

Scar Revision Morristown NJWhether you were in a car accident, cut yourself with a knife while cooking, or got injured while playing some intramural sports, having a scar can be one of two things: either really cool to look at and brag about or something that’s beyond embarrassing. If you feel like your scar is the ladder, consider getting scar revision done by Dr. Larry Weinstein.

Because Dr. Weinstein has conducted years of research on hypertrophic and keloid scars, he knows that one of the biggest reasons that they form is due to contamination, traumatized edges, and even genetics. Luckily, through his research, he has found a few tried and true ways to prevent these types of deep scars. Let’s take a closer look.

Clean the Wound Well

Cleaning a wound may sound super simple, but it can be quite painful. If you come into our office, Dr. Weinstein usually recommends some anesthesia before he cleans your wound. By properly cleaning the wound, removing any debris and bacterial contaminants, Dr. Weinstein’s belief is that the world has a better chance to heal without visual scarring.

Debridement

The second step that Dr. Weinstein swears by is to remove any damaged tissues or edges of the wound to help create smoother, non-traumatized edges. By using an atraumatic technique and small sutures, the goal is to close the wound and protect it from any outside contaminants. In some instances, an antibiotic will be given to help reduce bacterial proliferation.

Don’t Scratch, Rub, or Gnaw

One of the most annoying parts of having a scar that is healing is that it is so itchy. However, one of the worst things you can do when a wound is healing is to scratch, rub, or gnaw at it because it will lead to scarring. Try using either Benadryl or calamine lotion around the wound to help with itching and then on the wound after two weeks.

Tissue Expanders

In some instances, Dr. Weinstein may recommend placing a tissue expander underneath the wound which can help flatten a wound and reduce scar visibility in the process.

Because Dr. Weinstein has spent so much time researching hypertrophic and keloid scars, we offer patients a variety of different treatment methods. Ready to learn more about how we can help your wound heal? Schedule a consultation at our Chester office today 908-879-2222.

Fact or Fiction? The Truth Behind Tummy Tucks

It’s that time of year— the time when people are slowly giving up on their new year’s resolutions and are starting to fall back into their bad habits. Luckily, you don’t have to be one of them. If you want to really accentuate your weight loss goals in 2018, consider getting a tummy tuck from Dr. Larry Weinstein.

A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that involves tightening the skin around the stomach that has lost elasticity due to extreme weight loss or pregnancy. Just like with any surgery, there are some common misconceptions about tummy tucks like, “They are only for women.” To help you better understand this procedure, we have created a list of some facts and some things that are fiction about tummy tucks. Let’s take a closer look.

Fiction: Tummy Tucks Are Only For Women

Although tummy tucks are popular amongst female patients, they are gaining more and more popularity amongst men who have recently lost a lot of weight. One of the best parts about a tummy tuck procedure is that the incision will be so close to the groin that it can be concealed by underwear alone— which means few people will have to know that you even had this procedure to begin with.

Fact: A Tummy Tuck Is For People Who Are Extremely Overweight

A lot of people assume that cosmetic surgeries like liposuction or tummy tucks are for people who are extremely overweight, but it’s quite the opposite. Tummy tucks are ideal for patients who have lost a lot of weight or who have just had a baby. Often excess weight gain causes the skin to stretch out so much that it is unable to go back to its original position which requires the help of surgical procedures like a tummy tuck.

Fiction: A Tummy Tuck Always Involves Liposuction

Although tummy tucks and liposuction go hand in hand, there are some instances in which liposuction isn’t required during a tummy tuck procedure. During your initial consultation with Dr. Larry Weinstein, he will be able to help determine whether or not he thinks that liposuction in conjunction with your tummy tuck would be successful.

A Wrinkle In Time: 3 Myths About Wrinkles Debunked

Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures Chester,NJWrinkles: almost everyone has them but we all hate them. Whether you’re obsessed with beauty blogs, beauty magazines, or just want to look younger, it can seem like there is a no face cream or procedure around every corner to try to prevent wrinkles. So, what are wrinkles and what’s causing them? Let’s take a closer look at three common myths about wrinkles that we’ve debunked.

Myth 1: Pulling At Your Skin Causes Wrinkles

Okay, if you’re going to sit in front of a mirror all day pulling at your skin for hours on end, we can’t necessarily call this a myth— you may get a wrinkle or two by doing that. But if you gently pull on your skin when putting on makeup or even putting your contacts in, this slight amount of pressure on your skin isn’t going to cause any wrinkles.

Myth 2: Only Old People Get them

You’d be surprised to learn that people in their early twenties and even teens start to show signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles across their face and forehead. Even though wrinkles aren’t as prominent in younger people, they are still a definite possibility— which is one of the reasons why dermal fillers and Botox are about as popular among twenty-year-olds as they are amongst fifty-somethings.

Myth 3: SPF is Only for the Summer

One of the leading causes of fine lines and wrinkles is sun damage. And because the majority of people only wear sunscreen during the summer months, they are putting themselves at a higher risk of getting wrinkles during off seasons like the fall and winter. Make sure that you are wearing a daily moisturizer that has a sunscreen built into it.

How to Decide on What Breast Implant Size Is Right For You

Breast Implant Chester, NIThe trickiest part of getting a breast augmentation for most people is deciding to get one at all. The second trickiest part? Deciding what size of implant to get. Although Dr. Larry Weinstein can help you with the decision-making process, it’s ultimately your call. So, how can you decide on what implant size is right for you? Let’s take a closer look.

Think of Your Areas of Concern

Your reason to get a breast augmentation may be entirely different than the patient before you. For some women, they want larger breasts, for other women, they just want breasts that are more symmetrical. Before deciding on what size of implant you want to get, make sure to ask yourself, “Why am I doing this? What results am I hoping to achieve?” Although those questions may sound simple, they may go a long way.

Basic Measurements

During your initial consultation either one of our nurses or Dr. Larry Weinstein himself will take measurements of your chest which will help us to determine what sizes of implants may be too large for your frame and which ones are okay to go with. By taking a look at your anatomical structure, it will ensure that you have proportionate results.

Vectra 3D Imaging

With our Vectra 3D imaging system, we take the guessing game out of the equation for most of our patients. With our unique 3D simulation technology, we can upload a picture of your current size breasts and recreate the same image with different sizes of breasts— leaving you with the ability to see what your results will look like afterward.

It can be stressful trying to decide what size of breast implants are right for you. However, it is one of our top goals to ensure that you get results that you are 100% satisfied with. Want to learn more about breast augmentation surgery? Schedule a consultation with our Chester office today!


How to Get Selfie Ready In Time for the Holidays

 Facial Rejuvenation Procedures Chester, NJWhether you prefer to take selfies with your phone, tablet, or even a Polaroid, one thing is for certain— it’s important to always be selfie-ready— especially around the holidays. Here at

Dr. Larry Weinstein’s office, we understand the importance of having flawless skin, a sexy pout, and the best look to get you the most likes on social media. And although you can do a few touch-ups with a filter, having a naturally flawless appearance is what everyone wants. Here are a few ways you can get selfie-ready.

Botox

Whether you’re in your twenties or fifties, Botox can be a real selfie-saver. Botox works by temporarily relaxing the muscles in your forehead and around your eyes. Once relaxed, it softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles across your face— leaving you with that perfectly wrinkle-free complexion you’ve always wanted.

Fillers

Kylie Jenner isn’t just famous because of her family— she’s also famous because of those big, sexy lips. But, if you’ve followed Kylie since the beginning of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, you know that she hasn’t always had full lips— she uses fillers. If you want to make your followers stop in their tracks this holiday season, consider getting dermal fillers from Dr. Larry Weinstein. By strategically injecting your lips and the skin around your lips with fillers, you can get a fuller, sexier pout in no time.

It used to be that you could sit in front of a camera, smile and say cheese, and hope for the best, knowing that only a handful of people would ever see that picture. However, nowadays, as soon as you post a photo on social media all of your followers can have immediate access to it— which can feel like a lot of pressure. Luckily, with fillers and Botox, Dr. Larry Weinstein can get you selfie-ready just in time for the holidays.
