What to expect with buttock and thigh lifts

Aging, pregnancy, weight loss and even sun damage can cause your buttocks and thighs to sag or appear flatter than you’d like. Thankfully, there are plastic surgery procedures that can help improve the contour, size and shape of the behind. Read on to learn more about buttock and outer-thigh lifts and what to expect during surgery.

  • A buttock lift and outer-thigh lift can be performed separately or together to help you achieve the look you desire. This improves the shape and tone of the behind.
  • Ideal candidates are those who are in good general health, do not smoke and are not significantly overweight. They have excess skin and tissue in their buttocks and outer thighs and have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedures to address these concerns.
  • Buttock and thigh lifts are typically outpatient procedures performed under general anesthesia.
  • During a buttock lift, an incision is made across the top of the buttocks from one hip bone to the other. The incision is made so that it can be easily concealed by underwear and bikinis. Dr. Weinstein removes the excess skin and fat and may perform liposuction.
  • During an outer-thigh lift, the incision is made in the groin area. Excess skin and fat are removed, and liposuction may be performed.
  • After surgery, patients may need to wear compression garments to help with swelling and the healing process.
  • Patients may experience swelling, soreness and bruising for up to a month after surgery. Prescription medication can be used to control pain.
  • Patients often return to work and their regular activities about two weeks after surgery. They should avoid strenuous activities for at least four weeks.
  • After surgery, patients see better tighter, firmer contours and tighter, smoother skin.
  • Unless there is significant weight loss or weight gain, patients can expect results to be long lasting.

A buttock lift and outer-thigh lift can help you achieve the youthful contours you desire. To learn more, schedule a consultation with Dr. Weinstein by calling (908) 879-2222.

How do cosmetic fillers work to rejuvenate your appearance?

Botox is the most recognizable name when it comes to cosmetic injections, but it’s not effective on all types of wrinkles. While Botox works best on dynamic wrinkles—which are wrinkles that appear in the skin over a contracting muscle—it isn’t effective on static wrinkles. These wrinkles are caused by aging, sun damage and the loss of collagen production in the body. That’s when cosmetic fillers step in and can help patients achieve a more youthful appearance.

Read on to learn more about cosmetic fillers and how they work.

  • Cosmetic fillers are injectables that increase volume, enhance contours and temporarily smooth out wrinkles in the skin.
  • Cosmetic fillers such as Juvederm, Voluma and Bolotero are made of a gel hyaluronic acid, cartilage-like substance that act like “liquid face lifts.
  • Bolotero and Juvederm are used to augment or plump lips.
  • Juvederm Plus is ideal for nasolabial folds, which are the indentation lines on both sides of the mouth that extend from the bottom edge of the nose to the outer corners of the mouth.
  • Bolotero works well on fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Voluma is ideal for filling out the cheeks as it has the highest viscosity gel available.
  • You can combine dermal fillers with neurotoxins like Botox to achieve the youthful appearance you desire
  • Dermal fillers have also been used in conjunction with cosmetic procedures to further enhance your results.
  • Dermal filler appointments take minutes, and you are able to return to your regular schedule once you leave the doctor’s office.
  • Side effects are minimal, but may include minor swelling, bruising or redness at the injection site.
  • While results vary depending on the type of filler used, you will see immediate results that continue to improve and last anywhere from a few months to 1-2 years.

There are a number of cosmetic fillers that can help you achieve a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance in just a matter of minutes. To learn more, schedule a consultation with Dr. Weinstein by calling (908) 879-2222.
