Are You Man Enough to Go Under the Knife?

A growing number of men in the country are now very much keen into going under the knife, says a recent report by the The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). Over the last decade and a half, a whooping 121 percent increase in men seeking cosmetic surgery procedures have been reported. In 2011, the top plastic surgery procedures for men were liposuction, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, male breast reduction and face lift.

By and large, men from metropolitan areas often seek cosmetic procedures to correct or improve their overall physical appearance. Dr. Larry Weinstein, one of the premier plastic surgeons for New York male cosmetic surgery, performs the aforementioned top 5 procedures for men last year.

Fats Off with Liposuction

Liposuction generally works by suctioning out deposits of fat which are accumulated beneath your skin. Dr. Weinstein deftly carries out this procedure with his smooth and controlled hand movements, what with years of playing the violin. Men who are worried about the fats that simply won’t go away on their arms, waistline and legs will greatly benefit from liposuction.

Rhinoplasty for the Real Men

Dr. Weinstein believes that the best candidates for rhinoplasty are those who are not seeking perfection but improvement. In preparing for this surgery, you may be advised to avoid smoking and alcohol intake weeks before the date of operation. Rhinoplasty may be done either through local or general anaesthesia which will totally depend on the degree of surgery.

Drive the Puffiness Away with Blepharoplasty

Get rid of eye bags, the puffy regions around your eyes and drooping eyelids with Dr. Weinstien’s eyelid surgery procedures. Eyelid surgeries can be done in conjunction with other facial surgeries such as a brow lift or a face lift. The entire process usually takes around two to three hours, including pre-surgical preparations.

Good Riddance to Man Boobs!

Gynecomastia or man boobs is almost always the result of dramatic weight loss, intake of certain medications or influence of hormones. Non-smokers and those who are holistically healthy are ideal candidates for male breast reduction. Keep in mind that heavy lifting may be prohibited within 4-6 weeks post-procedure.

Take Years Off from Your Face, Brother

One of Dr. Weinstein’s important considerations when performing face lift amongst males is making sure that their baseline blood pressure is within normal limits. Due to genetic differences, blood pressure amongst men tend to be higher than that of women. Face lift falls under major surgeries wherein blood pressure levels are at high risk of for abnormal variations.

Safe Chemical Peels

Bid farewell to unwanted wrinkles, fine lines and hyperpigmentation by taking advantage of chemical peels offered at the center. This treatment is designed to safely remove the outermost layers of the skin.

Cellulite Treatment

Areas of the body with large portion of cellulite are massaged with an ultrasound machine. High frequency waves produced by the machine allows the tissues to heat up while vibrating. Ultramagnetic waves are proven to be very effective in penetrating the deepest layers of the skin and are much better than topical creams.

Microcurrent Facelifts

This non-surgical procedure is designed to produce a tighter and more youthful skin through heating the underlying skin tissues. Microcurrent facelifts promote remodeling of existing collagen reserves as well as its increased production.

Vitamin C Anti-Oxidant Treatments

Often used postoperatively, Vitamin C is administered to accelerate the healing process. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that is essential in treating sunburned and sagging skin.

Skin Resurfacing through Microdermabrasion Treatment

Microdermabrasion is the most advanced non-invasive treatment which helps eliminate acne scars, dark pigment spots, aging skin and fine lines.

Collagen Skin Rescue

For more youthful looking skin, a collagen skin rescue treatment may be performed. This skin- plumping and hydrating procedure aims to retain your skin’s natural moisture and keep it healthy.

Seaweed Body Wrap

Seaweeds are definitely good for you! Apart from eating them raw, a high protein seaweed wrap around cellulite-ridden areas of the body can help you lose weight.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

A lymphatic drainage massage can either be done during pre and postoperative care. Since post surgery edema is a common occurrence amongst cosmetic surgeries, this procedure stimulates the lymphatic system to filter and get rid of excess bodily fluids.

MENDHAM – When Dr. Larry Weinstein arrived at the Sancheti Hospital in Pune, India,  he found a surging crowd of more than 500 poor people with varying degrees of deformities, from severely cleft palates to grossly enlarged mouths.

Weinstein who lives in Mendham is a surgeon at Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center with offices in Chester and Summit. He was on his 21st mission of mercy to India to perform free plastic surgeries for everyone from babies to adults. But while the trip was a success, it was bittersweet because it was the first time that Weinstein had not been with his mentor and founder of the project, Dr. Sharadkumar Dicksheet.

Dicksheet, who lived in Brooklyn, N.Y., died on Nov. 14, 2011. Dicksheet started going to India and offering the free surgeries in 1968. Through the years, he conducted nearly 70,000 surgeries. The Indian surgeon had won international recognition for his work and had been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize five times.

Weinstein met Dicksheet at Kings County Medical Center, where Weinstein completed his residency and Dicksheet was then an instructor.

According to Weinstein, despite his serious health issues, Dicksheet, 81, was prepared to travel again to India before he died.

Weinstein was in India from Jan. 4-15 with a team that included Dr. Barry Citron of Livingston and two nurses, Amanda Hayes  of Bedminister and, Courtney Enman  of Long Valley.

It was Citron’s second mission and a first for Hayes and Enman.

Enman is a nurse in the operating room at Hackettstown Community Medical Center and has known Weinstein for 10 years.  Hayes works with a home care agency and helps with surgeries at Weinstein’s offices.
