Audience held spellbound during presentation by Dr. Larry Weinstein on plastic surgery and the battle of the bulge. Topics pertaining to diet, exercise and plastic surgery were discussed. Although, suction assisted Lipectomy or Liposuction has been advocated by many as a simple type of technique for removing fatty adipiose tissue, Dr. Weinstein felt strongly this technique should be utilized only for patients with fat or adipose deposits resistant to exercise and diet.

Multiple examples of patients who had adipose tissue which were resistant to exercise and diet were shown including:

Patient #1) A weight lifter who was unable to lose his love handles on the sides of abdominal wall

Patient #2) An exercise instructor unable to lose thighs.

These fatty deposits gave both of their bodies cosmetic disproportion which was alleviated by suction assisted Lipectomy.

Patient #3) Abdominoplasty “Tummy tuck” is utilized for correction of excess abdominal skin and/or fascial laxity. The saggy baggy stomach syndrome is alleviated by removal of skin, fat and tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall.

Dr. Weinstein advocated a low fat diet avoiding fatty foods such as olives, french fries, sausages, oils, fatty dressings, cooking in oil, cookies, cakes, ice cream, candy, etc.

Eating fish versus: Chicken, red meat and pork products, as fat content is least in fish and greatest in pork products.

Dr. Weinstein advocates 20 minutes of cardio exercise daily, and weights three times a week.

Other patients presented included a young woman who requested a Rhinoplasty was noted to have a very small chin and baggy lower eyelids. She had Rhinoplasty, a lower lid Blepharoplsaty, and Chin Augmentation for a much improved profile. She adjusted well to the changes which gave her a brighter, younger look and better feelings about herself.
