Start the Year Off Right With a Cosmetic Surgery Procedure

Maybe you’ve decided that this is the year you are finally going to go for it and get that cosmetic surgery procedure you’ve been wanting. Here are 3 reasons why you shouldn’t put it off anymore – this is the year!

3 reasons you should get that procedure done

Why have you been considering a cosmetic surgery procedure? Everyone has their own reasons, which might include:

1. Health reasons. Plastic surgeons can do more than just make cosmetic changes – they can also perform procedures that keep you healthy and safe. This can include a nose job to help you breathe and sleep better or eyelid surgery to make sure that your vision isn’t impeded.

2. You haven’t seen the results you were trying to get. If you’ve spent months and months (or years and years) working out and watching your diet but still aren’t seeing the toned, contoured body you’ve always wanted, cosmetic surgery can help to get rid of stubborn, excess fat that you just can’t get rid of.

3. You are tired of being self-conscious. Everyone has something about their body they would change – is there something that you are always trying to hide? You don’t have to feel that way anymore. A cosmetic surgery procedure can help you to get rid of that constant feeling of self-consciousness and give you the body and the confidence you deserve to have.

Are you still having doubts about surgery? Don’t worry – you can still make changes. Maybe you’re not ready for a surgical procedure, but you can still take care of wrinkles, lines, and aging skin. There are a variety of injectables and other treatments available to treat any issue you may have – and these are nonsurgical with little (or no) downtime needed.

Why have you been thinking about plastic surgery? Whatever your reasons, if you have decided this is the year you’re going to do it, contact the Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center in Chester, New Jersey. Call (908) 879-2222 for an appointment today!

Get the Body You Deserve!

After many years of exercising and eating right (and working very hard) you have lost a lot of weight — but now you have extra skin and fat that you just can’t get rid of. If this sounds all-too-familiar, it may be time for a plastic surgery procedure! Read on for some of the procedures that may be able to help you. 

Breast lift

Breasts have a lot of fat in them, and unfortunately, when you lose weight, this is one of the more noticeable places the fat disappears from. If you have sagging breasts because of weight loss, a breast lift, or mastopexy, can help to restore volume.

Male breast reduction

The male chest can show the effects of weight loss, too. Excess tissue in the breast area can look more prominent after the pounds have come off. Male breast reduction surgery, or gynecomastia, can get rid of that extra tissue and give you a more flattering chest. 

Body contouring

A body contouring procedure helps to show off the weight you’ve lost, by removing excess fat and skin to give you a more toned and contoured appearance. 


This very popular procedure, also known as a “tummy tuck,” tightens and smooths the stomach muscles, where a pooch can remain no matter what you’ve tried to get rid of it. 


Very often, when you have lost a lot of weight, sagging skin on the face remains. A facelift can tighten up this tissue. 

Arm or buttock lift

Like the abdomen, these are two areas where fat stubbornly remains no matter what exercises you try. These procedures can remove excess tissue and give your body the firm and toned appearance you’ve always wanted. 

It can be very frustrating when you’ve worked so hard to exercise and eat right but still don’t have the body you want (and deserve!). One or more of these procedures from Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center in Chester, New Jersey can help you to get rid of the excess skin and fat that remain after you’ve lost a lot of weight.

4 Tips for Choosing Your Ideal Plastic Surgeon

It is important to carefully choose who will perform your plastic surgery – after all, they will not only be in control of your cosmetic changes but your health and safety as well. However, the process of choosing the right plastic surgeon can feel overwhelming. There are so many to choose from that you may not know where to start. Here are 4 tips to help you choose your ideal plastic surgeon. 

  1. A good place to start is by asking around for referrals. Ask friends, family, and people at work – and don’t forget friends on social media. But don’t just get the doctor’s name and add it to your list. Ask what they liked about their surgeon, as well as what they didn’t like.
  2. When you go to their office for your consultation, evaluate the cleanliness of the office, the friendliness of the staff, and the demeanor of the doctor. If the office doesn’t seem very clean, the staff doesn’t seem to care that you have been waiting around for more than an hour after your appointment was supposed to start, and the doctor doesn’t seem to be listening to your concerns, it probably isn’t the doctor for you.
  3. Ask about training and certifications. Board certification means the doctor has undergone extensive training and has met stringent patient safety standards.   
  4. Ask to see examples of their work. Any plastic surgeon you are considering should be able to show you before and after pictures of previous patients. When looking through photos, look for bodies and faces that had a structure similar to yours before their surgery, and check the results of the surgery.

Choosing a plastic surgeon is just as important as choosing a family doctor. Carefully think about what you hope to get out of plastic surgery, and take the time to consider the different doctors in your area. The staff at Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center in Chester, New Jersey, will be more than happy to discuss your procedure with you – they know you will decide that their office is the right one for you!

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.



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 Get the Most Out of Your Surgery

 Surgical Procedures Chester, New JerseyWhether you want a little tummy tuck or just a small rhinoplasty, Dr. Larry Weinstein and his medical staff can make all of your cosmetic dreams turn into a reality. And although we will do all of the heavy liftings, it’s important to know what you can do on your end to get out of recovery safe and fast. This article will list three ways that you can get the most out of your surgery. Read on to learn more.

  1. Follow Recovery Tips

As soon as you are released from our care following surgery, it’s up to you to make sure that you are following the recovery tips and protocol. Make sure that you are referencing the care pamphlet we sent you home with regarding how to clean your incision site, things to avoid doing (like heavy lifting and exercising), and signs or symptoms of an infection.

  1. Have Realistic Expectations

Whether you’re getting a rhinoplasty or breast augmentation, one thing is for certain, no matter how hard he tries, Dr. Larry Weinstein or any other cosmetic surgeon won’t be able to change your entire appearance. So, if you want to look like J.Lo but don’t have her facial structure or features, to begin with, we can’t make that happen. Before you go into your surgery, it’s important that you have realistic expectations. The more realistic you are, the more satisfied you will be.

  1. Stop Smoking Beforehand

If you are a smoker, we won’t be able to perform surgery on you until you have stopped smoking for at least two weeks. By decreasing your body’s ability to fight off infection, smoking makes you more susceptible to such problems and prevents you from healing properly.

3 Ways to Accentuate Your New Curves This Summer

 Body Procedures New JerseyOne of the many benefits of getting surgeries like liposuction or a breast augmentation from Dr. Larry Weinstein is that you’ll get to show it all off with confidence. However, to help boost your appearance, even more, we have created a brief guide listing ways that you can take it one step further to accentuate your new curves. From using self-tan to wearing clothes that hug you in all the right places, this article will give you a few tips to use. Read on to learn more.

Self Tanning

Yes, it is true: the tanner you are, the thinner you will look. And because tanning beds are thankfully cancer causing a thing of the past, you may not know how to get a fast tan. Luckily, because the cosmetic industry has upped its game, there are now tanning creams and lotions that can give you an instant tan without looking too orange. As a tip, remember to apply the tanning cream in a circular motion so that you cover every inch of your body— and whatever you do, don’t forget to scrub your hands and fingers afterward.

A Supportive Bra

If you just got a breast augmentation or lift from Dr. Larry Weinstein, one of the best ways that you can show off your new breasts is by wearing a supportive bra. And that doesn’t mean that it has to be super padded. In fact, by getting a bra that has some underwire and a little bit of lining, you can take pressure off of your back while making your breasts more supported.

High Waisted Bikini

If you are planning on really showing off your body this summer, you may want to head to the swimming pool. As one of the most flattering cuts of swimsuits, a high waisted bikini will allow you to show off your newly tightened tummy while not revealing too much.

Whether you just got a tummy tuck, liposuction, or some breast surgery, it’s nice to be able to show off your body with confidence. Use these tips to take your confidence up a notch this summer. To learn more about these and other surgical procedures, contact Dr. Larry Weinstein today!


Can Cosmetic Surgery Improve your Quality of Life?

plastic surgeryThere are innumerable reasons why men and women may seek cosmetic plastic surgery. Many of those who consider improving a particular physical characteristic, such as the size or shape of their nose, continually procrastinate. Others move ahead with their elected procedure, having a sense that they will feel better about their appearance. Rarely are patients told that cosmetic plastic surgery will improve their life or their relationships. Why? Because it is not always the case, and we are seeing both sides of this question answered by research.

The Positive Outcomes of Cosmetic Plastic Surgery

We see the positive outcomes of plastic surgery on a routine basis, and it brings us joy to hear how our patients are renewed in the area of self-confidence. Our personal experience reflects findings from various research studies. Two, conducted by Dr. Neil Sadick in 2008, investigated both surgical cosmetic treatments and non-surgical procedures. The findings were similar across the board.

  • 95% of patients who underwent breast lift surgery reported both physical and psychological improvements after their procedure.
  • A large percentage of patients who were treated with cosmetic surgery of one kind or another reported significant improvement in general quality of life 6 months post-surgery. Specific areas of improvement included relationships, social interactions, and sex.
  • A final study by Dr. Sadick found that patients who underwent facial plastic surgery felt significantly more satisfied with their appearance, and also felt less anxious and more independent.

An Interesting and Important Point

One of the aspects of plastic surgery that is discussed at length is expectations. When you look at the research findings, you could assume that every person who changes an aspect of his or her appearance would gain greater happiness in general. This is not necessarily true, and older research confirms this point.

A mid-90s study, Physical attractiveness and subjective well-being, investigated the how and why of improved psychological well-being after plastic surgery. What researchers found was that expectations really do matter. They looked at “target happiness” based on appearance, and found that it is not beauty, per se, that improves happiness, but our own unique perception of our own attractiveness. Greater beauty does not translate into more happiness, on average. Not all participants in this study would be deemed “attractive” by societal standards; but by their own standards, if they felt attractive, they enjoyed a greater sense of happiness overall.

The takeaway? Cosmetic plastic surgery, when approached with realistic expectations and an open mind, can improve your physical appearance and, as a result, your life. We are happy to speak with you about your esthetic goals. Give our office a call!

How to Properly Communicate With Your Plastic Surgeon

It can be easy to walk into any store and get persuaded into buying the latest toy or the latest fragrance, however when it comes to something a bit more serious, like your facial appearance, it’s important to not be persuaded into doing anything that you’re just not certain about. However, because plastic surgeons can’t read minds (hard to imagine) it’s important to strongly communicate to them what kind of results you are looking for. Read on to learn more.

One of the best ways to communicate with your plastic surgeon about what you want is by showing them pictures. For instance, if you are going in for a rhinoplasty, find a bunch of images of noses that you like and see if your doctor can match it— that way both you and your doctor feel confident regarding what the outcome will look like.weinstein1

Show Them Pictures

Discuss Your Problem Areas

If for some reason you just aren’t entirely sure of what you want, communicate with your surgeon the problem areas you have. For instance, you have an abundance of stomach fat or you want larger, fuller looking breasts— whatever it is, be sure to point out all of the problem areas you have— that way, your surgeon can go to work with fixing those areas.

Talk About the Outcome

As one of the best communication tools, it’s important to discuss what kind of outcome you are looking for with getting this surgery done. For instance, perhaps you want larger, fuller looking breasts or you want a subtle nose job that not even your grandmother would be able to notice. Communicate these things in detail to your plastic surgeon.

By following the above three tips, you can properly communicate with your plastic surgeon and get the best results possible. To learn more about plastic surgery or to schedule an appointment, contact our office today!

Why Do We Need Plastic Surgery?

Plastic SurgeryEven if it is not true 100% of the time, a great body is often taken to be the sign of a great personality. Because of this, we are sometimes hyper-aware of your bodies, and we all have many different issues about our individual bodies. Maybe you are embarrassed because of a defective body part. Maybe you are a little overweight and that makes you self-conscious. No matter what your personal body issues are, you don’t have to worry anymore. We have you covered through plastic surgery.

What is Plastic Surgery?

Plastic surgery is a unique type of surgery which alters your appearance. Although it can be reconstructive and more medical in purpose, most of the time it is purely cosmetic. However, these cosmetic surgeries can help provide you with the confidence you’ve always lacked. Reconstructive procedures can fix bodily defects such as birth defects and cleft lips; it can correct traumatic injuries such as dog bites and burned skin. It can even rebuild women’s breasts after breast cancer surgery! Whether you are getting plastic surgery for reconstructive or cosmetic reasons, it gives you a perfect body shape and ideal figure.

Possible Plastic Surgery Treatments:

  • If your ears are too much large and you are not happy with them, then you can give them a better shape by ear pinning. This is known as pinnaplasty.
  • If you have bags under your eyes or droopy eye lids, this corrective treatment is known as blepharoplasty.
  • If you feel your skin around your neck and jaws is too loose, you can reshape your neck with the help of a neck lift.
  • Reshaping the nose is known as rhinoplasty.
  • Augmentation of the chin is known as genioplasty.
  • Reducing the fat and excess of skin between the elbow and underarms is known as brachioplasty.
  • Reshaping and reducing the fat in your abdomen is known as abdiminoplasty.
  • Reconstruction of the penis is known as phalloplasty.

There are, of course, many more options, but these are some of the most common.

The Benefits of Plastic Surgery

Your reasons for plastic surgery might be different than someone else’s. Here are some of the most commonly-cited benefits.

  • Plastic surgery is the fastest way to improve your appearance—and the best if you are changing something about your inherent bone structure.
  • Plastic surgery helps you to live a better life by giving you confidence. With beauty comes power.
  • You can increase your self confidence, which can bring a positive impact in your daily life.
  • It will increase your communication skills and self-esteem.
  • You will feel more comfortable in your skin after plastic surgery. It might even allow you to take part in physical activities that you never imagined were possible.

Plastic Surgery: Make Miracles Happen!

Humans have this almost insatiable desire to conquer and transform their surroundings. Miraculous inventions and technologies make this possible every day. Perhaps the last frontier to conquer is the one closest to home: our own bodies. Although these technologies have been in process for centuries, most of them are just now coming to fruition. With every passing day, some miraculous invention comes to light and helpsplastic surgery all of us enjoy the developments of the medical field.

One of these seemingly-miraculous innovations is plastic surgery. It continuously grows safer and cheaper—in other words, more accessible to the common man (as opposed to just celebrities). And Dr. Weinstein can help give you the special, new look you’ve always wanted.

The Details of Plastic Surgery

Although plastic surgery is wide field and can be concerned with the medical correction of some body part, more often than not it is merely an aesthetic and cosmetic surgery. In these surgical procedures, the principles of plastic surgery are applied to reconstruct various features, mainly for the purpose of enhancing your personal beauty.

The major plastic surgery treatments include:
* Facial rejuvenation.
* Full body procedures, such as tummy tucks.
* Breast augmentation.
* Facelift through fillers.
* The removal of excess skin.
* Liposuction.

With most of these surgeries, the doctor will make cuts to inter or extract tissue and fat. The size and depth of these incisions depends on the type of procedure and amount of work being done. Similarly, the complete recovery period also varies from procedure to procedure, patient to patient, depending upon your body type and the work you received. However, no matter the surgery, the post-surgical care and maintenance is also crucial to the success of your plastic surgery.

One of the techniques available here at our office is skin grafting. Used in a variety of plastic surgeries, skin grafting works specifically with the epithelial cells of your skin to give you better results. No matter what specific techniques are used, however, you will work with our surgeon to develop a specific goal and treatment plan.
