3 Benefits of a Liquid Facelift

Facial Fillers Chester, NJYou may think that in order for you to get a facelift that you have to go under the knife, but Dr. Weinstein has a secret for you: you don’t. With a liquid facelift, Dr. Weinstein can give you a similar look without the surgery. By using a combination of fillers and Botox, Dr. Weinstein will make strategic injections across your face to help you get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, and add more volume to any lax skin. Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits of this procedure

No Recovery Time

One of the things that deters a lot of patients from a traditional surgical facelift is the fact that they have to spend time recovering. If you live a busy life either raising a family or working, the last thing that you have time to do is lay in bed for a few weeks recovering. With a liquid facelift, there is no real recovery required. The only thing we will ask you to do is not to exercise for 24 hours afterwards so that everything settles just fine.

Real Results

Our patients keep coming back to Botox and fillers for a variety of reasons, but the biggest one is that they give people real results every time. Even though you won’t see the results from Botox for about 3-5 days after your injections, you will see results from your fillers almost immediately.

You Have More Control

The fun thing about a liquid facelift is that Dr. Weinstein can start out small, see how you like it, and then add more fillers as he goes on; that way you have more control over your results. This kind of control, helps our patients feel more confident.

How to Minimize Scarring After Surgery

Minimize Scarring Morristown, NJ

Whether you are getting a tummy tuck, rhinoplasty, or breast augmentation, it’s safe to say that the last thing that you want to end up with is a bunch of scars. Even though you will likely have at least some amount of scarring after surgery, there are a few ways that you can minimize how severe they are, but how?

Avoid the Sun

The sun is basically your skin’s worst nightmare; especially when you want to avoid scarring. The sun will naturally darken your scars and make them more pigmented which can be hard to get rid of. While your skin is healing, make sure to avoid any direct sun contact. Additionally, if you do expose your scar to the sun later on, make sure that you apply a lot of sunscreen over it to prevent it from darkening.

Don’t Pick

The difficult thing about scars is that they itch while they are healing. Even though you may be tempted scratch your scars because they are itchy, it’s the last thing that you want to do. If you pick at your scars, it can interrupt the healing process which can make them a lot more visible.

Try Keeping It Moisturized

Another thing that you can do is keep your scar as moisturized as possible. As your skin is healing, if it dries out, it may cause the skin to crack which can increase the visibility of your scar. By keeping it moisturized, however, you can help to reduce the appearance of your scar while also avoiding any itchiness.

How a Thigh Lift Can Help You Add a Little Spring to Your Step This Spring

Thigh Lift

Losing a lot of weight is a victory within itself. However, even though having a slimmer body can be life changing, it can leave you with excess stubborn fat and a lot of loose skin in the process. So, what can you do to get rid of both of these concerns? A thigh lift.

What’s a Thigh Lift?

Here at Dr. Larry Weinstein’s office, we offer patients a variety of different surgical procedures including a thigh lift. During a thigh lift, Dr. Weinstein, will make an incision on your inner thigh next to your groin so that the incisions can be concealed later on. Once the incisions have been made, he will then use a liposuction technique to remove excess fat from the upper thighs and then begin removing excess skin and tightening it. After each step is complete, he will then stitch you up and get you back on the road towards recovery.

Why a Thigh Lift?

It can be really hard to have a lot of excess skin after weight loss because it prevent you from showing off your full results. After all of the dieting and exercise that you put yourself through, not being able to get into a swimsuit or shorts without feeling self-conscious about your excess skin is enough to make you want to hit your head against the wall. With a thigh lift, Dr. Weinstein can save you all of that frustration and help you feel more confident in your skin (literally).

What Are Results Like?

The number one thing that you will be happy with after getting a thigh lift are the results. After the swelling has died down, you will notice that you have less fat around your thighs and you won’t have the loose excess skin that you did before.

How to Stay Comfortable After a Butt Lift

Butt Lift | Chester NJ

With spring break just around the corner, you may get nervous just thinking about having to squeeze into a bikini or swimsuit  in front of people. Rather than spending your beach vacation hiding under a big blanket, show off your hard-earned body this year after you get a butt lift from Dr. Larry Weinstein. During this surgical procedure, Dr. Weinstein will tighten, firm, and contour the buttocks giving you something to strut about while you’re walking on the beach. To make sure that your recovery goes as well as possible, let’s take a closer look at some ways that you can stay more comfortable while you rest and recover. 

Wear Compression Underwear

No, they may not be the sexiest things on the planet, but compression underwear will help speed up your recovery and make you feel better as well. Compression underwear is designed to hug your buttocks which helps to keep your incisions in place and ease swelling as well; both of which will help you stay more comfortable. 

Sleep On Your Side

The number one way for you to stay comfortable while you’re recovering from a butt lift is to sleep on your side. If you are a back sleeper, this may be harder for you to do but by taking the pressure off of your buttocks, you won’t feel in as much pain or discomfort. For additional support, you can always place a pillow in between your legs as you sleep as well; this will help align your back. 

Take It Easy

On average, you can return back to your normal activities after about two weeks. Until that two week period, though, make sure that you really take it easy. The more you push yourself physically, the more likely you are to get hurt or get an infection. Use this time to catch up on TV shows, movies, or read a few good books. 

To make sure that you recover as comfortably as possible, use the tips listed in this article. To learn more about a butt lift, contact us at our Chester office today and call us at 908-879-2222.


How Fillers Can Make You Feel Sexier About Yourself

Fillers Chester, NJHere at our office, Dr. Larry Weinstein believes that all of his patients should feel sexy and confident about themselves at all times. Whether your confidence is dwindling because of fine lines and wrinkles or if you just need a little pick-me-up, we have a few different injectables that may help you feel sexier in your skin.

Botox

If age is making you feel less sexy than ever, then Botox may be the perfect thing for you. Botox works to help soften fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes and forehead. By making strategic injections, Dr. Weinstein can help soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to give you a naturally, more youthful look.

Fillers

If you feel like you have lost all volume in your cheeks, then fillers can help. Unlike Botox which works at a more muscular level, fillers do just as their name states and they fill in fine lines; giving you a more youthful look. Another fun thing about dermal fillers is that when they are strategically placed, they can also help add more contour to your cheekbones; giving you a sexier look.

Lip Fillers

Fillers aren’t just for your face, they can also be used to plump up your pout. And what’s sexier than fuller lips? Just about nothing in our book. Whether you want noticeably fuller lips or if you just want to add a little bit more definition to them, Dr. Weinstein will sit down with you beforehand to help determine the best way to give you those results.

We can help you feel sexier than ever. To learn more, contact our Chester office at 908-879-2222.


How to Get Rid of Your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Facial Fillers Chester NJHaving numbness, tingling, or achiness in your fingers, hands, and wrists is the last thing that anybody wants. If you spend your days typing or working with your hands and have experienced these symptoms, you may have a condition called carpal tunnel syndrome. But what is carpal tunnel syndrome and how can it be treated? Let’s take a closer look.

What Is Carpal Tunnel?

The carpal tunnel is a passageway through your wrist that carries tendons and nerves. When pressure builds up on the nerve in the carpal tunnel it can cause carpal tunnel syndrome that results in aching, numbness, tingling, and even impaired hand function. If you have recently been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome or if you experience any of these symptoms on a regular basis, then you may not know where to start as far as treatment goes. Depending on the severity of your condition, you may be able to use a simple splint but if your condition is severe, then Dr. Weinstein may recommend surgery.

Splint

Doing everyday tasks like picking something up or using your phone can oftentimes exacerbate your symptoms and make them work. When you isolate your wrist and hand with a splint, you may be able to alleviate some of the symptoms that you are experiencing; just make sure that it’s the right fit for your hand because if it’s too tight or too loose, it may cause worse symptoms.

Physical Therapy

If you type a lot for a living or work with your hands, then you know just how sore they can get after a long day of work. Sometimes, physical therapy is recommended to help stretch your hands and loosen your nerve to alleviate pressure. During physical therapy, your hand therapist will work with you on hand strengthening and stretching exercises that you can continue to do at home.

Surgery

The last thing anyone with carpal tunnel wants to have to do is undergo hand surgery, but sometimes it’s necessary. During surgery, Dr. Weinstein will cut the tissue that placing pressure on your nerve to help relieve pressure. Surgical results vary from patient to patient and depend on how severe your carpal tunnel was and how long that you had it for.

The best way for you and your doctor to determine what treatment option is going to give you the best results is by scheduling an appointment with us at our Chester office at 908-879-2222.
