Do I need a breast augmentation or lift?

There are many reasons why women may be unhappy with their breasts, which is why breast enhancement surgery is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure. Pregnancy, weight loss, aging, hormones and development can affect the size and shape of the breasts. During your consultation with Dr. Weinstein, you will discuss your options for breast enhancement, which include breast augmentation, breast lift or both. Read on to learn more about the differences between the two surgical procedures.

Breast augmentation

More than 300,000 people in the United States undergo breast augmentation each year. This popular surgery addresses the size and shape of the breasts. There are a variety of reasons why women want to have this surgery done. Women who have experienced pregnancy or weight fluctuations may notice loss volume. Some women have abnormally small or underdeveloped breasts, while others have elongated breasts or breasts that are different sizes. Some women seek this surgery after having previous breast surgery.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Weinstein will go over the different surgical techniques best suited for you based on your breast anatomy and concerns. This includes the placement of the incision and implant type, size and shape. While saline implants are an option, most patients opt for silicone implants as the silicone gel feels most like natural breast tissue. The newest option is gummy bear implants, which are silicone gel implants with higher viscosity.

Breast lift

While breast augmentation addresses the size and shape of the breasts, a breast lift will reshape and raise sagging breasts. Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift consists of removing excess skin and tightening breast tissue to create a more youthful contour. Often, women choose to have a breast lift with breast augmentation to increase the breasts’ size and firmness and correct any imbalance in shape.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Weinstein will discuss the various incision patterns and techniques and make recommendations for you based on your age, skin elasticity, size and shape of your breasts and whether implants will be involved.

If you’re interested in changing the size and shape of your breasts or reshape and raise sagging breasts, call our office today at (908) 879-2222 to schedule a breast enhancement consultation with Dr. Weinstein.

Eyelid surgery explained

If your eyes are making you look more tired and older than you actually are, then you may have considered your options for rejuvenation, including eyelid surgery. How do you know if you’re a candidate? Read on to learn all about eyelid surgery and why it’s such a popular procedure.

Candidates for surgery

The best candidates for surgery are physically healthy, are in a good frame of mind and have realistic expectations. Many people over the age of 35 could benefit from eyelid surgery.

Why get surgery?

The eyes are the first place on your face to show signs of aging. The eyelids can age faster over time due to sun exposure and environmental factors. The muscles weaken, the eyelid skin stretches, and fat accumulates around the eyes.

Eyelid surgery is also called blepharoplasty and eye lift. During this surgery, Dr. Weinstein removes excess skin, fat or muscle from the areas around the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. The lower eyelid blepharoplasty reduces eye bags and smooths out the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes. An upper eyelid blepharoplasty consists of removing fat deposits and excess skin from the upper eyelid. Many patients need both upper and lower eyelid surgeries to address their concerns.

Aesthetic and functional benefits

There are many benefits to eyelid surgery. Improving the appearance of the eyes through eyelid surgery can make your overall appearance look more youthful and radiant, improving confidence. Often, eyelid surgery involves removing excess skin from the upper eyelid that droops over the eyes, improving vision.

Incisions are nearly invisible

The beauty of eyelid surgery is that incisions are small and remaining scars can be easily hidden within the natural creases of the eye and eyelid. This is one reason why eyelid surgery is so popular. During upper eyelid surgery, small incisions are made in the natural crease of the eyelids. For lower eyelid surgery, incisions are made below the lashes in the lower lid. Once Dr. Weinstein is done, he closes the incisions with very fine sutures.

Eyelid surgery helps you look more alert and youthful, and results will last for several years. To see if you are a candidate for surgery, call our office today at (908) 879-2222 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Weinstein.
