Breast augmentation or breast lift?

young sexy woman in red bra, gesturing hushIf you are unhappy with the size or shape of your breasts, it can start to affect your self-esteem and even how much you enjoy life. If you have decided to make a change in your chest, you no doubt have a lot of questions about the many different procedures to choose from – to start with, you may wonder what the difference is between a breast augmentation and a breast lift.

What is the difference between a breast lift and breast augmentation?

Both procedures can improve the appearance of your chest, but they do very different things. In a breast augmentation, implants may be used to enhance the size and the shape of the breasts. It is used to give volume to the chest, to give a woman a curvier figure, and is often used to correct issues such as asymmetrical breasts and small breast size. Your doctor will be able to tell you about the different types of implants and can advise you on which one might be right for you.

A breast lift is used to eliminate loose and sagging tissue, “lifting” the breasts and making them look more youthful after the effects of pregnancy, nursing, or after a dramatic loss of weight. It can also be used to change the location of the nipple. Patients with small, sagging breasts typically see the best results from a breast lift procedure, but a breast lift can be performed on any size of breast.

Which one is right for you?

Which procedure is right for you depends on the results you would like to see. Some patients may benefit from both procedures – a breast lift can be done to raise sagging breasts while breast augmentation can be done to increase size and firmness. Whether you choose a breast lift, a breast augmentation, or both, the procedure will give you natural-looking results.

9+ Things You Should Know About Liposuction

Body with marked zones for liposuctionLiposuction has been a very popular procedure for many years. If you’ve been thinking about having liposuction, you probably have some questions – read on for 9+ things you should know about lipo!

What is liposuction and how can it benefit you?

Liposuction is a safe and effective way to get rid of excess fat:

1. Liposuction removes those stubborn bits of fat that just won’t go away no matter how much you diet or exercise. It not only gets rid of fat – it also allows the doctor to give your body contours in all the right places.

2. It can be performed on almost any part of the body, including, of course, the stomach, the hips, the buttocks, and the thighs, but also the upper arms, the neck, and the calves.

3. Liposuction has come a long way since it was first used. Nowadays, there are many different techniques to choose from for liposuction, including SmartLipo, LASER Lipo, Ultrasonic Liposuction, and the Whisperator. Your doctor will help you decide which method is right for you.

4. Liposuction can be done in as little as one session, although it may take several sessions depending on your overall health.

5. Liposuction is not a replacement for diet and exercise! You should strive for a healthy lifestyle before and after the procedure.

6. You should be in good overall health before liposuction.

7. After the procedure you can expect some swelling and bruising. Most patients find relief with an over-the-counter pain medication.

8. It may take a few weeks to really notice the effects of liposuction.

9. If you’ve only had limited liposuction, your recovery should not even affect your daily life. However, if you’ve had more extensive lipo, it is best to plan on missing work for 5 to 10 days after the procedure, and you should not do anything strenuous for 48 hours afterward.

Liposuction is popular for a reason – it is a quick, safe, and effective way to get rid of fat that just won’t go away. Call the Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center in Chester, New Jersey, for a liposuction consultation. Call (908) 879-2222 for an appointment today!

What is a liquid facelift?

Beauty Portrait Of Woman With Aloe Vera Slices.If you would like to get rid of some wrinkles and remove saggy facial skin, you may think your only choice is a plastic surgery procedure. You may have your doubts about surgery, but don’t worry – there are other options. A liquid facelift may be the answer for you!

The benefits of a liquid facelift

A liquid facelift is a combination of fillers to tone up sagging skin, add volume where it is needed, and to erase fine lines and wrinkles. Unlike a plastic surgery procedure, a liquid facelift is noninvasive, which means it is less painful, there is less downtime involved, and it costs a lot less.

What fillers are used in a liquid facelift?

You and your doctor will meet to discuss your issues and what you hope to achieve with a liquid facelift. From there, your doctor will suggest the best fillers for your needs. There are many to choose from, including:

• Radiesse, which is used to fill in wrinkles and lines. It is made of microspheres filled with calcium hydroxylapatite, which stimulates the growth of collagen, which makes skin look younger and adds volume.

• Restylane adds volume to the skin, and it can also correct “laugh lines” around the mouth and other wrinkles. It is made up of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is essential to healthy skin.

• Juvéderm is also made up of hyaluronic acid, which helps to keep skin looking young and free of wrinkles.

The fillers used in liquid facelifts are safe and effective – many patients see the benefits of a liquid facelift for up to 2 years. The effects of a liquid facelift are also reversible, if you change your mind. And, most patients report that the procedure to get a liquid facelift is virtually painless, although there may be a bit of swelling or bruising at the injection site afterwards.

A liquid facelift is a great way to get younger-looking, firmer skin without the hassle of a plastic surgery procedure. There are many benefits to a liquid facelift – call the Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center in Chester, New Jersey, to discuss this procedure. Call (908) 879-2222 for an appointment today!


Start Now for a Shave-Free Summer

perfect smooth female legs receiving laser epilationAre you dreaming of a warm summer breeze as you enjoy some time on the beach? It may be hard to imagine such a thing now, as the snow is falling and the wind is raging. But, believe it or not, summer will be here before we know it, and you can start preparing now! If you’re tired of shaving and waxing, you can start laser hair removal now for a smooth summer!

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

What people love most about laser hair removal is, obviously, that you don’t have to worry about the hassle of shaving and the pain of waxing. It is very effective, as the hair follicle is destroyed so that hair won’t grow back (some people will see as much as a 90% reduction in hair). However, you may need touch ups now and then, possibly every few months.

Laser hair removal is also very safe, and it is FDA approved. Both men and women get laser hair removal treatments, to remove hair on the chest, abdomen, bikini area, legs, face, and arms.

Why do I have to plan for laser hair removal now?

Laser hair removal is very effective, but it does take more than one treatment. The number of sessions you need depends on your hair color and how coarse the hair is that you want removed – it can take 6 to 8 sessions to completely get rid of hair.

Another reason to plan ahead is that skin has to be prepared before the procedure. You will have to allow your tan to fade, and you’ll want to avoid the sun as much as you can for weeks before your treatment. You’ll also want to avoid too much exposure to the sun afterwards. Your doctor may have other instructions for you to follow as well.

For now, you may be only dreaming of warmer weather, and it may seem very far away – but making plans now can mean a shave-free, hassle-free summer. Contact Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center in Chester, New Jersey, for a laser hair removal appointment. Call (908) 879-2222 today!


8+ Things You Should Know About Botox

young smiling pretty woman having botox rejuvenation procedure of cheek zoneYou probably know at least one friend or coworker who has had Botox, and they probably love what it has done for them. Have you been considering Botox? If you’ve been thinking about Botox, you may have some questions. Here are some Botox facts!

What you need to know about Botox

1. Botox works by blocking signals between the nerves and the muscles, which keeps muscles from contracting and relaxes and smooths out wrinkles.

2. It is a neurotoxin, which sounds like a bad thing to inject into your body. However, it is very safe when it is used correctly, has been used in cosmetic procedures for decades, and has been used successfully with millions of patients.

3. It is used to reduce the appearance of lines around the mouth, frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. However, it has medical uses, too. It is used to treat neck spasms, lazy eye, chronic migraines, and overactive bladder.

4. The procedure to get Botox is noninvasive, nonsurgical, and quick. It is done in the doctor’s office and there is no downtime afterwards, although you should avoid strenuous activity such as a trip to the gym.

5. Most patients say that there is very little pain – just a bit of a pinch. You may be bruised a bit afterward, but this will fade within a few days.

6. The effects of Botox can last as long as 6 months, although it may take a couple of weeks to really see these effects. After your Botox has worn off, it is safe to get more injections.

7. Botox can be combined with other procedures, depending on the results you would like to see. Your doctor can help you decide which other procedures are right for you.

8. Botox is a great way to reduce wrinkles and get younger, smoother-looking skin if you have tried at-home creams with no results, but you aren’t quite ready yet for a surgical procedure such as a face lift.

If you have been considering Botox, why wait anymore? Call the Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center in Chester, New Jersey, at (908) 879-2222 for an appointment today!
