Your Breast Augmentation Scarring Guide

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery revealed that breast augmentation owns the top spot amongst the top cosmetic surgeries for women in 2011. This should not be a surprise as more and more women these days are opening their selves to the idea of highlighting their assets via cosmetic surgery.

The latest technological advancements in the aforementioned field has also convinced these women that going under the knife is not scary at all. There are various reasons why these women choose to have a New York breast augmentation surgery with Dr. Larry Weinstein. However, these ladies would often ask, will there be scarring?

Very Minimal Scarring with Dr. Weinstein

Any skin incision will cause scarring of some type. However, highly experienced surgeons such as Dr. Weinstein will always attempt to make the stitching as neat and small as possible to avoid scarring. Before the surgery, you may be shown photos of Dr. Weinstein’s previous works to guarantee that there will be very minimal appearance of scars.

Keloid vs. Hypertrophic Scars

A bright pink scar may appear a few days after the surgery. Severe scarring may occur in two forms – keloid and hypertrophic scars. The former occurs when the scar appears red, raised and extends beyond the region of the original incision. A keloid scar is often the result of too much collagen production during the healing phase. On the other hand, a hypertrophic scar often confines itself within the site of incision.

Post-Surgical Instructions

Unwanted scarring could be prevented by carefully following post-surgical instructions provided by Dr. Weinstein. A combination of factors such as genetics, overall health and current medical conditions could influence the formation of scarring. You should also try to avoid smoking after a breast augmentation procedure as it could reduce the body’s ability to heal quickly and properly.

You might also want to apply sunscreen to greatly diminish the likelihood of scarring as well as avoid further damage. Although the breast area may not be that exposed to the sun, this instruction is still valuable come summertime.

Ear Surgery- New Jersey

Exceedingly protruding ears can be a source of pain and embarrassment from childhood on. Usually performed under local anesthetic, an otoplasty consists of repositioning the ears through an incision in the back. Additionally depending on your needs, your cartilage may be resculpted or removed to create a more sleek appearance. Dr. Weinstein may also use stitches to form the ear cartilage into a more pleasing position. At Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center, we provide immediate results and most likely a rapid return to your normal activities. Ear surgery or otoplasty can typically be performed as soon as the ears have stopped growing, usually around age four. Why wait for years of negative attention and difficulty? Contact our New Jersey office today for more information or to schedule a consultation.
