Why You Should Put Your Waist Trainer in the Wastebasket

Body Procedures Guilford CTWith the whole minimalism trend circulating, it may have you assessing your belongings. And although there are some things that are worth holding onto like your wedding dress, old photographs, and some family heirlooms, there are other things that are worth throwing away— like that waist trainer. And even though celebrities from The Jersey Shore and other reality TV shows have raved about the great results they’ve received from their waist trainers, there are more things to be scared of than rejoiced when it comes to these bad boys.

They Don’t Work

First things first, if you think that by just wearing one of these modern-day corsets every day is going to give you slimmer waist, you’re going to be very disappointed. Not only don’t waist trainers work but they also can’t give you the hourglass shaped figure that they claim, unless you already have an hourglass figure. The best way to get a slimmer waist is with diet, exercise, and liposuction. Remember that your body needs to burn calories to lose weight, and wearing a waist trainer doesn’t burn calories.

They Restrict Oxygen Flow

If you have seen the first Pirates of the Caribbean, you remember the scene in which Elizabeth Swann falls off the wall because her corset is too tight. Although wearing a waist slimmer won’t necessarily land you a future with Orlando Bloom, they can restrict your oxygen flow which can cause a variety of issues including problems with your lymphatic system.

There are some things worth holding onto, and there are other things that are worth throwing away like clothes that are ripped, furniture that is broken, and your waist trainer. If you want real weight loss results, schedule your liposuction consultation with Dr. Gary J. Price at our New Haven office today (203) 453-6635.

When to Consider Getting a Mini Facelift

Mini Facelift Guilford, CTWhen it comes to combating fine lines and wrinkles it can seem like you have two solutions: you can either go all in and get a surgical facelift, or you can do something temporary like getting facial fillers and Botox. However, Dr. Gary J. Price offers patients another option: a mini facelift or a celebrity facelift. So, what is this treatment and what are its benefits? Let’s take a closer look.

What’s a Mini Facelift?

Mini facelifts have gained popularity among our patients because they give them a more youthful complexion without the recovery time and process. During this surgical procedure, Dr. Gary J. Price will use a local anesthetic to numb the face. Once the face is numb, he will make a small incision at the hairline to help lift the skin into a more youthful position.

What Are Its Benefits?

There are several unique benefits of a mini facelift including that you won’t have to go under general anesthesia. Even though general anesthesia is effective in most surgical procedures, it can make a recovery longer and can even make some patients feel ill, but with a mini facelift, we get rid of the need for general anesthesia. Another unique benefit of this procedure is that there are no bandages necessary. With traditional facelifts, patients are typically sent home with their whole face bandaged up, but with this surgery, you won’t have to worry about resembling a mummy anytime soon.

If your fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of collagen in your skin have been getting you down, but you want more than Botox and less than a facelift, consider getting a mini facelift from our New Haven Office. Call (203) 453-6635 to schedule your consultation today!

  1. Results Look Fake

As long as you are getting your facelift done by an experienced professional like Dr. Gary J. Price, your results from your facelift should look natural— making you look almost years younger in the process.

  1. All Surgeons Are Created Equal

In a perfect world, you would be able to go online and Google the most affordable surgeon in town and feel confident that they will give you great results. However, that’s unfortunately not the case. In fact, there are a lot of people who go to a surgeon that doesn’t have experienced and get results that make them wish they didn’t get the procedure to begin with.

Saline Vs Silicone Implants: Getting Back to Basics

Breast LiftLife is full of options. You get to choose what you have for lunch, where you want to work, and nowadays, you can choose what you want to look like with the help of doctors like Dr. Gary J. Price. One of the options in particular that Dr. Gary J Price prides himself on is the different breast implant options that we offer at our office. Whether you want firm, soft, round, or teardrop shaped implants, we have several options for you to choose from with the help of Dr. Gary J. Price and our staff.


Saline implants are available to suitable patients over the age of 18 and are popular because they are filled with an all-natural saltwater solution. Unlike silicone implants, one of the unique things about saline implants is that they are filled up with the saline solution during the surgery— not beforehand— which helps give Dr. Gary J. Price a little bit more flexibility in the surgical process itself.


Silicone implants are available to patients who are over the age of 22. Silicone implants are popular amongst patients because they give a more natural look and feel than saline implants. Another benefit of silicone implants is that if the implant gets a rupture in it, they won’t collapse which gives patients more time to have it fixed without having to deal with too much embarrassment.

Just like with all things, there are pros and cons to both saline and silicone implants. During your initial consultation, we will help you decide what size, shape, and texture of implant is best for you and your body. If you want to learn all about your breast implant options or to schedule your consultation, contact our Guilford office at (203) 453-6635.

Pucker Up, Santa! How to Get a Sexier Pout

Lip Enhancement Guilford, CT | New Haven Whether you’re married to Santa Claus himself or if you just want to be caught kissing him under the mistletoe, you need to make sure that you have the best, kissable pout on the block. We have created a brief guide listing a few ways to make sure that your lips are ready for some holiday action.


Nothing can make your lips more chapped quite like dehydration and the cold weather. Make sure that you are exfoliating your lips with an all natural sugar scrub 1-2 times per week. The natural exfoliant in sugar will help to get rid of the dry skin and leave you with smoother, kissable lips.


In addition to exfoliating, make sure that you are also moisturizing your lips— especially if you’re an avid lipstick wearer. To moisturize, you can use a variety of different products including vaseline or even coconut oil. Just make sure to apply it to your lips throughout the day and especially before you go to bed at night.


Want to make a statement and make Santa never forget your big kiss? Consider getting dermal fillers from Dr. Gary J. Price. Dermal fillers like Restylane and Perlane are especially good at adding natural looking volume to your lips almost instantly. By strategically placing injections on your lips and around your mouth, you can get fuller lips just in time to greet Santa under the mistletoe.

Stay Hydrated

Another great way to make sure your lips are as soft and supple as ever? Stay hydrated. The more hydrated you are, the more moisturized your skin, hair, and lips will be. Try drinking at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water every day.

Get ready to lay one on Santa this holiday season with a refreshed pout. To learn more about fillers or to schedule your consultation, contact our Guilford office today!

How to Get that Celebrity Look In Time for the Holidays

Facial Fillers Guilford, CTAs much as we don’t care to admit it, looks do say a lot about you— they show off your success, your beauty, your radiance, and can even make you feel more confident about you. If you are dreading your big work or family holiday party coming up because you lack the confidence needed to walk into the room with your head held high, Dr. Gary J. Price may have the perfect treatment for you. And with the holidays just around the corner, you don’t have much time to recover— here are a few ways to get that celebrity look just in time for the holidays.

Is the IDEAL IMPLANT, Really that Ideal?

IDEAL IMPLANT Guilford, CTLet’s talk breast implants. Just like with most things in life, you have options to choose from when you are considering a breast augmentation. You get to choose the size of the implant, the shape of the implant (round or teardrop), the incision location, and most importantly, the type of implant that is going to give you the results you want.

During your initial consultation with Dr. Gary J. Price, you will go over all of these options and specifically, whether you want to go with a saline or silicone implant. But if you are stuck on what type of implant to get, you may want to make the ideal choice and go with the IDEAL IMPLANT.


Nothing is more natural than water— even salt water— right? Saline implants are filled with salt water which gives patients peace of mind that if their implant were to rupture, it wouldn’t cause them any harm or damage. However, many patients opt not to get saline implants because they have a hard texture and a poignant round appearance.

One of the many benefits of The IDEAL IMPLANT is that it is designed differently than traditional saline implants. Its unique structure contains an inner shell which holds the saline and an outer shell that holds an outer saline filler. Between both of these shells are one to three baffle shells which give patients peace of mind, and a natural appearance and texture.

With traditional silicone implants, it’s difficult for patients to detect if they have a leak which in rare instances can sometimes lead to health issues.

If you have been wanting to get breast implants but aren’t sure what kind to get, schedule a consultation with Dr. Gary J. Price. During your initial consultation, he will go over all of your options to ensure that you pick the best one for you. Contact our Guilford office today to learn more!

Laser and Light: Are They the Same?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Guilford, CTWanting beautiful skin and knowing how to get it are two entirely different things. You may want that million dollars home with the Porsche in the driveway, but the chances are that you don’t know how to get it— in this lifetime anyway.

Similarly, you may know that you should wash your face and wear sunscreen if you want a clear complexion. But if you want movie star worthy skin, you may want to consider getting either light or laser. As two popular procedures, light and laser often get mistaken for each other, but they’re different.


You know that you can go in your house and turn on the lights, and you also know that light is emitted from the sun, but did you know that light can also tighten skin, get rid of hyperpigmentation, and lighten scarring?

There are different sources of light; some that are harmful to the skin and others that are a bit more therapeutic. The goal of light triggered devices like Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is to direct small pulses of light energy into specific targets into the skin such as melanin, blood, water, or even acne bacteria. By emitting these small pulses of light, the skin is heated up which helps to give you a smoother, tighter, and more even looking complexion.


You may have dreamed of holding a laser beam like Darth Vader when you were a kid, but the lasers used to treat your skin are a little different. If you remember Vader’s lightsaber, however, you remember it as one continuous beam. Similarly, laser technology for your skin also emits one single ray of light to penetrate deep into the skin. Because laser technology is precise, it helps Dr. Gary J. Price target specific areas of the skin.

Schedule your consultation at our Guilford office to learn more about whether light or laser is better for your skin’s specific needs.
