    Breast Augmentation with Dr. Fiorillo {150 South Pearl Street, Pearl River}

    When the word plastic surgery comes up, often, the first thing that comes to mind is breast augmentation. Implants, lifts, reductions, and reshaping are some of the most highly-coveted types of breast augmentation procedures out there. We recently caught up with Dr. Fiorillo, a double board-certified plastic surgeon and owner of his own practice in Pearl River, New York to chat about breast augmentation. His office is a 30-minute ride from Hoboken.

    “Breast augmentation is the no.1 cosmetic procedure for women and has the highest happiness rate,” Dr. Fiorillo shared with Hoboken Girl. He specializes in “Gummy Bear Implants,” which are a cohesive, silicone-based implant with a similar consistency to that of a gummy bear. The implants look and feel more natural and prevent leakage if there was a rupture. The procedure typically takes around one hour and is performed under general anesthesia. Incisions are minimal and hardly visible, located discreetly under the breast. The implants are placed under the muscle, which helps to lift and elevate the breast. Most people recover quickly and are back to everyday activities in just a few days. It is important not to engage in anything strenuous for four to six weeks, however, so be mindful of that when scheduling the procedure.

    Rhinoplasty at Dr. Park Avenue {80 River Street, Hoboken}

    Rhinoplasty is a facial procedure that includes altering the shape, size, and functionality of the nose. Depending on the desired look, each patient’s journey could look very different. Dr. Zhuravsky, of Dr. Park Avenue right here in Hoboken is the team’s leading rhinoplasty surgeon as he weighed in on this highly coveted procedure. Recovery time for most rhinoplasty procedures ranges, but bruising and pain usually resolves in a week or two and can be tolerated by taking Tylenol or a low-dose painkiller. Swelling takes anywhere from four to six weeks to go down but generally takes up to a year to see the final result. Dr. Zhuravsky sees patients for consultations on rhinoplasty on Tuesdays in the afternoon/evenings at Dr. Park Avenue’s office, which is right across from the PATH Station. Be sure to give them a call to see what options are available to you at 201-942-9292. 

    EmSculpting and CoolSculpting with Dr. Fiorillo {150 South Pearl Street, Pearl River}

    For many, shedding pounds and sculpting the body is a priority. EmSculpting and CoolSculpting are two noninvasive ways to jumpstart that pursuit. Both procedures can be done in the office and require little to no recovery time. The aforementioned Dr. Fiorillo and his team offer both and have seen excellent results in patients. Emsculpt is a non-invasive machine that works to build muscle and Dr. Fiorillo was one of the first doctors in the country to have it. He currently treats the abs and butt, generating a 22 percent increase in muscle after four treatments. 

    “It’s like doing 20,000 situps or squats in a half hour without the work,” explained Dr. Fiorillo. He recommends four 30-minute treatments over the course of two weeks to see the best results. This HIFEM {High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic} energy machine is the first-ever developed to target muscles and pairs nicely with CoolSculpt, a noninvasive machine that freezes fat and melts away the pounds. 

    Vivace Fractional Microneedler at Downtown Medspa {115 Christopher Columbus Drive, Jersey City}

    So many of us suffer from acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and other skin imperfections. Just when you thought that no serum could fully erase these marks, we met the Vivace Fractional Microneedler. Different from your average at home and in-office microneedlers, the Vivace is a minimally invasive procedure that treats post-acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, and pore reduction. We recently visited Marietta, owner of Downtown Medspa in Jersey City to work on some post-acne scars and hyperpigmentation. 

    The Vivace Microneedler is a minimally invasive machine that penetrates the skin with microneedles to aid in the production of collagen. The procedure takes around an hour and a half is virtually painless — thanks to a full-face numbing cream. What is so special about our experiences at Downtown Medspa is that with Marietta, it’s clear that she dedicates her time and expertise to her patients. The Vivace provides both immediate and long-term results. What’s even better is that Marietta’s prices far beat out other Manhattan medspa prices.

    Injectables at The Plastic Surgery Center {multiple locations}

    Let’s talk injectables — one of the most popular forms of cosmetic enhancements on the market. From Botox to Juvéderm, there are so many options to choose from. We sat down with Dr. Deborah Yu, a board-certified plastic surgeon with a focus on noninvasive procedures from The Plastic Surgery Center {which has offices all over New Jersey including Jersey City and Montclair} to learn more about the benefits of a few of her favorite injectables. 

    “What I aim to do is make my patients look natural and not overdone,” explained Dr. Yu. She prefers to use products with Hyaluronic Acid since the body naturally produces it. Juvéderm comes in many forms. Juvéderm Voluma is designed to restore volume in the cheeks, mostly by the jowl area and produces a more natural look. Juvéderm Volbella and Juvéderm Ultra XC are both great for lips. Volbella creates a more natural look while Ultra XC provides more plumpness to the lips. For the most part, deep lines between the eyebrows can be injected with Botox, which paralyzes the muscle so the face is unable to create those lines again.” 

    “I am not looking to put fillers where there was never volume. My goal is to restore what you have lost and prevent the creation of new wrinkles,” Dr. Yu shared. 

    With the variety of procedures available today, there are so many to choose from. By doing a bit of research and chatting with a trusted plastic surgeon, it is possible to achieve a certain desired look and feel your best, too. 

    A few other locations in Hoboken that offer Botox include Dr. Park Ave {80 River Street}, Schweiger Dermatology {2 Hudson Place}, Hoboken MedSpa {254 First Street}, Attain Medspa {720 Monroe Street}.
