It’s finally summertime! That means gorgeous weather and plenty of time outdoors. However, summer also brings a host of skin care challenges. The summer sun can cause damage to your skin if you’re not prepared. Did you know you’re at an increased risk of breakouts—with acne triggering from some unexpected sources? At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we can help you keep your skin fresh while you beat the heat!
The Oil-Free Key To Healthy Skin!
In the heat of the summer, your skin doesn’t need a thick coat of heavy moisturizer to stay hydrated. Our New York dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, recommends applying a light, oil-free moisturizer to lock in moisture and avoid dryness and peeling. Even better, these light moisturizers can fight dryness from cholorine and many have an SPF to protect against sunburn.
Shield Yourself From The Sun’s Rays!
Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen! While the sun poses a threat to your skin year-round, the summer sun can be extremely damaging—especially its ultraviolet rays. The key to preventing sun damage is reapplying sunscreen multiple times a day. All too often, we are guilty of applying sunscreen in the morning and then heading out for a summer day. Unfortunately, sunscreen only lasts about 2 hours. Dr. Levine recommends to reapply sunscreen generously throughout your day, no matter the weather conditions. You are still at risk even on a cloudy day! UV rays can also penetrate office windows and car windshields, so make sure to lather up before leaving for work.
Acne Triggers From The Unlikliest of Places!
You may never have considered your sunglasses as a potential cause for acne, but did you know that oil from dirty sunglasses can trigger breakouts? As dirt and bacteria build up on your glasses, the areas around your nose, temple, and cheeks are more susceptible to acne. Dr. Levine says to give your sunglasses a quick cleaning every time before use to reduce breakouts!

Bikini season is here! Are there certain “problem” areas preventing you from wearing your favorite bikini? You may find yourself struggling to lose those last few inches of stubborn fat around your abdomen and thighs in time to flaunt your figure. However, advancements in liposuction techniques have made the process of slimming stubborn fat areas more efficient, less invasive, and resulting in less downtime compared to traditional techniques! At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we provide individualized liposuction procedures to target your problem areas and achieve your desired results.
Slim and Shape Your Body!
You can target unwanted fat with precision thanks to our VASER LipoSelection procedure. This technique uses ultrasound energy to remove fat from most areas of the body! VASER LipoSelection is effective for areas such as the thighs, abdomen, and back. During this procedure, ultrasound energy is used to eliminate fat cells while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed; this results in less bruising and discomfort compared to more traditional liposuction procedures. The VASER LipoSelection procedure also promotes skin tightening weeks after your procedure for progressive, natural-looking results.
Achieve A Tight Physique!
SmartLipo is another advanced liposuction technique. This method uses lasers to tighten skin and eliminate stubborn fat. SmartLipo is perfect for patients who want to slim down and firm up the neck, buttocks, or upper arms. In addition, SmartLipo can fight cellulite! Our New York plastic surgeon can combine SmartLipo with Cellulaze treatment in order to tighten skin and reduce dimpling in areas like the upper thighs and buttocks caused by pockets of localized fat known as cellulite.
Our NY Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, and staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about VASER LipoSelection, SmartLipo, and our other liposuction procedures.

Mother’s Day is nearly here! In honor of this very special day, we’d like to wish all mothers and grandmothers a happy and healthy Mother’s Day, including our very own, double board certified pediatric dermatologist Dr. Jody Levine. As all mothers know, our children’s health comes first. As they grow, their skin manifests the various developmental and hormonal changes that are taking place. Dr. Levine offers a wide range of medical, surgical, and laser treatments for the entire family. Infants, adolescents, and teens are welcomed into our child-focused environment as our team provides personalized care.
Skin conditions such as eczema, impetigo, and allergic rashes can be treated medically. Topical treatments, prescription medication, and even over-the-counter remedies can help ease symptoms and fight infections. If your child suffers from conditions such as sores, rashes, bumps, or redness and itching, medical treatment may be the best course of action.
Skin growths and markings should be evaluated by a dermatologist to determine whether or not treatment is necessary. Dr. Levine offers a wide range of pediatric surgeries to treat skin irregularities. Conditions such as benign and concerning skin growths, cysts, and lipomas can be safely removed in our in-office AAAASF accredited operating suite.
Advanced laser technology allows for innovative treatment options for conditions such as acne and hair loss, as well as vascular lesions. If your child has tried traditional approaches to conditions like acne without experiencing any major improvements, then laser treatment may be the right option.
Our NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, NY Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, and staff at Pediatric Dermatology NYC welcome any questions you may have about our medical, surgical, and laser pediatric dermatological treatments. Contact our office at 212.988.1123, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!

May is on the horizon, and the time for proms, dances, and graduations is approaching. With so many formal events occurring and pictures being taken, it’s normal that your teenagers may be extra sensitive to their skin’s appearance. Here at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we offer a variety of skin care treatments to help keep acne in check. Here’s some advice on how to capture the moment with clear skin!
Develop a Proper Routine
One of the most crucial aspects of skin care is home-care. Choosing the right skin care products for your skin and developing a daily regimen can keep blemishes at bay. Our toners, cleansers, and exfoliators are hand-picked to ensure success. Remember! Keeping acne-free skin starts with a little self-care.
Renew Your Skin
Sometimes, however, additional treatments are necessary to stop acne in its tracks and refresh your skin. Try a medical-grade chemical peel or laser peel to improve your skin’s texture and appearance. These treatments not only remove dead cells on the surface of your skin, but they also can help stimulate new collagen production underneath to dissolve acne, blemishes, or uneven pigmentation. Our New York dermatologists offer a variety of peels, ranging from superficial to deeper treatments.
Zap Stubborn Acne
For some, acne is resistant to topical treatments. In this case, we recommend laser acne treatment for acne inflammation and scarring. Our NY dermatologists use both lasers and light-based systems to prevent blockages in your pores and stop lesion-forming bacteria from growing. With photodynamic therapy, LED treatments and ThermaScan available, you can treat even the most persistent of acne.
Our NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, NY Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, and staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about our skin care treatments, including our chemical peels, laser peels, and laser acne treatment. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!

Spring has officially arrived! It’s time to put away multiple layers of clothes and transform into a new you! If you’re not satisfied with your current curves, consider our breast augmentation procedure to achieve the results you desire. Thanks to technological innovations, breast implant procedures have never been more precise! Here at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we can help you visualize your results before undergoing surgery. Thanks to our state of the art Vectra 3D Imaging technology, you can visualize your desired results.
Mapping Your Physique
Our aesthetic simulation technology starts by mapping your current shape in order to produce high-quality 3D images of your body. These photos are conducted in the privacy of our office and are the foundation for your upcoming breast implant procedure because they provide the “before” model that our New York plastic surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, builds upon to create your 3D simulation.
Sculpting Your Desired Results
Next, Dr. Levine will use Simulation Sculptor Software to modify the 3D rendering of your “before” physique. Our surgeon will change the 3D images to reflect the expected results of your breast augmentation. You can see how implants will enhance your appearance to reflect the type of breasts you desire. Breasts can be enlarged, shaped, or even lifted until you are satisfied with the changes. You are in control of your results! In addition, our surgeon can better understand the exact results you’re looking for by seeing your changes mapped out on screen.
Developing a Plan of Action
After creating the perfect “after” image, our NY plastic surgeon can develop a personalized surgical plan to bring the results laid out on our Vectra 3D mappings to life. While results may not be completely identical to the 3D rendering, our Vectra 3D and breast augmentation technology work together to achieve the most accurate results possible—making your dream body become reality!
Our NY Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, and staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about our breast augmentation procedures, as well as our Vectra 3D Imaging technology. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!
