Why You Should Be Wary of Travelling Somewhere Exotic For Surgery

Breast Augmentation Chester NJWhat sounds better than heading to a foreign, tropical country and coming back with some new breast implants, a nose job, or a tummy tuck? It may sound like your idea of heaven and a great way to save some money, but it’s definitely not something that Dr. Weinstein always recommends. So, before you decide to book a trip somewhere abroad to get plastic surgery, read this blog post.

 

Operating and Sanitary Standards

Unfortunately, operating room and sanitary standards vary worldwide. While here in the United States we have to meet certain sanitary requirements in order to avoid infection, other countries don’t necessarily have them in place. In fact, they may be a lot lower which can put you at risk of developing an infection during or after surgery.

 

Training

Here in the United States, you know that a plastic surgeon not only as to go through four years of medical school but they also have to go through a six-year residency as well. Whereas, other some other countries only require a few years of training in cosmetic surgery.

 

Traveling Afterward

Imagine having to sit upright in a long flight after a surgery— doesn’t sound fun, right?

After you undergo any type of surgery the last thing that you want to do is get in a plane. Even if you are resting in a country for a couple of days or a week after surgery you may not be healed enough to get in a plane and fly.

 

The united states isn’t the only country with certified and trained surgeons. There are plenty of countries that offer safe and effective surgeries in well-trained facilities and hospitals, but there are other countries that don’t. Before you consider traveling abroad, come into our office and have a consultation with Dr. Weinstein. To learn more, contact our Chester office and call us at 908-879-2222

 

3 Ways to Speed Up Your Arm Lipo Recovery

Liposuction Chester Township, NJ Having loose fat on you upper arms can make you feel self-conscious to have your picture taken and to wear anything that shows them off. Rather than spending this summer hiding your arms because you’re self-conscious, why not take matters into your own hands (or Dr. Weinstein’s hands) and get arm liposuction? During this procedure, Dr. Weinstein will surgically extract the fat in your arms to help give you that slender look that you’ve always wanted. To help you get recovered faster, let’s go over three easy tips to follow.

Don’t Exercise

If you were to keep your hand sedentary during your entire workout, can you imagine how impossible it would be? Even if you were doing a leg workout. This is why we tell all of our patients to avoid any sort of exercise or strenuous activities for at least a couple of weeks after surgery, because it’s impossible to workout without moving your arms. By giving your arms a break, they will have enough time to heal on their own without getting irritated by exercise.

Keep Arms Bandaged

No, bandages and compression sleeves may not be the sexist thing you have ever worn, but they are one of the best things that you can wear while you’re recovering. Why? Because they will help reduce swelling and keep your incision intact while they are healing so that you don’t get an infection.

Clean Your Drain

Depending on how your surgery went, we may place a drain in your arms to help get rid of excess fluid after surgery. Although a drain may be a little bit irritating, it’s important that you keep it in at all times. Additionally, we also tell our patients to make sure that they clean their drain as frequently as possible so that it doesn’t get dirty or grow bacteria.

If you are ready to get sexier, leaner arms, contact Dr. Weinstein at our Chester office today and all us at 908-879-2222.
