What are Injectables?

Injectables and You

Once a month, you and your friends get together for manicures and lunch.  It has been your tradition for as long as you can remember, and you always have a great time catching up with your friends.  During your monthly get-together, you notice that your friend’s skin is radiant!  “I just wanted to say that you look great,” you tell your friend.  “What is your secret?”

Your friend smiles as she looks at you.  “I just had Botox, and I am so excited with the results,” she exclaims.

Dr. Tzvi Small is an expert in cosmetic injectables that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines in the face in neck.  If you are looking for a quick and easy way to rejuvenate the look of your face and skin, keep reading Dr. Small’s blog to learn more about injectables!

Dr. Small and Injectable Treatments

Dr. Tzvi Small knows the dramatic difference that one injectable treatment can make for a patient.  Lines, wrinkles, and creases, fade and patients see a more youthful reflection staring back in the mirror.

Dr. Small offers three different types of injectable treatments.  During an initial consultation, Dr. Small will meet with you to understand your own cosmetic goals, and help guide you to the right injectable treatment for you.  Our injectables include:

  • Botox- Botox reduces the look of creases and wrinkles in the face and neck areas.  it is an injectable that can relax the facial muscles that trigger wrinkles and lines to appear.  The procedure is quick and almost completely painless, while the results are dramatic.
  • Restylane- like Botox, Restylane is used to smooth the look of lines around the face.  It is made from a biodegradable gel that is cost-effective, safe, and eco-friendly too.  Restylane lasts for approximately 6 months before another treatment may be required.
  • Fat Transfer Injections- this filler is made from a patient’s own fat cells.  The fat cells are collected from areas of the body where fat is not desired, and the resulting cells are injected into target areas after they are sterilized.  This method poses no risk for an immunologic or allergic response, as the cells already belong to the patient.  In-turn, this procedure is extremely safe.

All of these injectable options allow for our patients to regain confidence with the look of their skin.  If you are looking for way to look more youthful with minimal downtime, contact the injectable expert, Dr. Small, today.

Popular Mommy Makeover Procedures

After a woman has a baby, her body will undergo many changes. This is natural given the nature of pregnancy. The weight fluctuations will cause women’s bodies to be altered by stretch marks and loose skin, and sometimes a woman may look older than she was prior to pregnancy. This may be why so many women come to Bergen County plastic surgeon Dr. Tzvi Small in order to undergo a mommy makeover.


What is a mommy makeover exactly?

A mommy makeover refers to a combination of different plastic surgery and non-surgical treatments intended to enhance the appearance of a woman after childbirth. Each mommy makeover is custom tailored to the patient, meaning that your unique needs will be addressed with surgeries that are performed just for you.

No mommy makeover is the same, but there are many popular and recurring procedures that are often used during a mommy makeover. Let’s take a look at these right now.

Body Contouring Options for a Mommy Makeover

One of the most common mommy makeover procedures is the tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). A tummy tuck will remove excess skin that droops around the lower abdominal area, giving your stomach a taut and firm appearance. Additional lifts on other parts of the body may be performed as well depending on your needs. Whatever the case may be, liposuction is often combined with various body contouring surgeries to remove problem pockets of fat.

Breast Enhancement Options for a Mommy Makeover

A woman’s breasts will increase in size during pregnancy, and their overall shape, pertness, and appearance can be altered after a child is born. In many cases, the breasts droop or sag after pregnancy, which is why many women undergo breast lift surgery in order to reverse this. It’s not uncommon for women to also undergo Bergen County breast augmentation in order to enhance the overall size and shape of the breasts.

Facial Plastic Surgery Options for a Mommy Makeover

The face can also be seriously affected by pregnancy. Weight gain and weight loss linked to pregnancy can lead to a little drooping or sagging of the skin in different parts of the face. For this, facelift and cosmetic eyelid surgery are both particularly helpful for restoring a youthful appearance. Facial lifts for the neckline and the lower face area are not uncommon as well.

Other Facial Rejuvenation Options for a Mommy Makeover

Not all enhancements to the face need to involve surgery. That’s true in general and it’s also true of mommy makeovers. There are plenty of options for skin care and facial rejuvenation that involve little to no downtime and results comparable to surgery. Whether it’s the use of cosmetic injections or skin revivifying options, you’ll be amazed how the glow of your skin can be restored.
