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.”

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.
