Once you’ve committed to the procedure and decided on a surgeon, you’ll need to schedule a pre-op appointment.  Your surgeon will also likely review your procedure again and answer any questions you might have.  Some physicians ask you to bring an example of clothes you typically wear or a swimsuit to discuss the placement of your scars so you can finally have that bikini body you’ve dreamed of! I brought a swimsuit to my surgery day so he could see exactly where I would prefer the scar lines to fall. 
Often, individuals who have lost a lot of weight — whether due to pregnancy, bariatric surgery or intensive weight loss efforts — are disappointed to find that they still do not have the firm abdominal profile they desire. Such extreme fluctuations in weight can leave individuals with loose abdominal skin that has lost its elasticity and therefore cannot shrink back to a smaller shape or size after the weight loss. In addition, pregnancy can leave mothers with severely damaged or even separated abdominal muscles that cannot be toned. Once these developments occur, no amount of diet and exercise can restore a firm, flat midsection, and surgical intervention is necessary to repair the damage.
Your surgeon should give you aftercare instructions for changing your bandages and cleaning your incisions to prevent infection. They’ll also let you know when your drains and any stitches can come out. Until then, sleep on your back or side, avoid lifting heavy things, and follow your doctor’s recommendations for when you can go back to your regular routine, including sex.
You may decide to have breast implants at the same time as a breast lift. An implant can increase the size or fullness of your breasts. For safety reasons, some surgeons will not do the two procedures at the same time. If this is the case, you’ll first undergo the lift, with the augmentation followed weeks to months later. This “staging” is to prevent any loss, or necrosis, of the nipple.

For less invasive, non-surgical procedures we offer many non-surgical options to improve your appearance and youthful image with natural looking results. Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey offers BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers Juvederm® for lip enhancements or to smooth out wrinkles, chemical peels, HydraFacial/microdermabrasion, and Juvéderm Voluma™.
Trust me, I heard it everywhere. People are used to seeing me with clothes on I know how to dress myself to minimize the damage of two kids and a C section. But I didn’t feel good about my sagging skin. I wanted to wear a bikini.  I finally have the confidence to wear a bikini at my age but without the matching body. Isn’t that the way aging goes??

“I wanted to be a doctor so I could help people feel better. I wanted to be a plastic surgeon so I could repair people’s bodies, in ways big and small, not just to improve their looks, but to help them align their physical appearance with their internal perception of themselves. I consider it an honor and a privilege to serve my patients, and I never take for granted the ability to change people’s lives for the better.”
Also referred to as a mastopexy, breast augmentation in conjunction with the lift. An augmentation can increase the total cost of the surgery because of additional surgical expertise required. Most augmentation surgeries also require the use of implants, which can add additional costs as well, especially depending on the type and style of implant chosen. Dr. Van Wyck can discuss the differences between your options during your consultation.

Even when living a healthy lifestyle, you may have fatty deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. The Plastic Surgery Group offers liposuction to New Jersey residents struggling with reducing fat in these “problem” areas. Our Board Certified plastic surgeons can sculpt and refine the problematic areas of fat. Liposuction removes excess fat underneath the skin to improve body contours. We’ll work closely with you to determine the best plan to achieve your goals.
The average breast lift cost is listed between $4,000 and $6,000 and will vary depending on geographical area. Other factors also influence mastopexy price, and it's important to understand everything for which you are paying before you make your decision. The price in part depends on how long and extensive your surgery is. If your breasts have a significant degree of drooping, or they are very large, you will probably require a longer, more expensive surgery. It's best to discuss your particular needs with a plastic surgeon to determine exactly what type of procedure you'll need, and how much you can expect to pay.

A tummy tuck can involve different combinations of techniques, all intended to help patients achieve a lean, toned midsection. The procedure almost always includes liposuction, tightening of underlying muscles, and removal of excess skin, all performed to various extents. With so many possible variations on a tummy tuck, it can be difficult to pin down an exact price one might expect to pay.
Your downtime following a tummy tuck procedure will depend on the extent of your treatment, and during that time, there are several essential expenses. Some are included in the total cost of your treatment, while others are not. I provide a free elastic support garment for each of my patients to wear as they recover, helping to facilitate proper healing. If that elastic support garment must be replaced, it can cost from about $50 to $100.
