Facelift and Neck Lift Procedures For a More Youthful Appearance!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, MARCH 19, 2015 AT 5:36 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

As the warm weather approaches, you’ll be leaving behind sweaters, scarves and other cold weather clothes in favor of your favorite spring wear! However, as the layers disappear, you may find that you are self-conscious of what’s underneath—specifically sagging skin in the neck area.

Also known as “turkey neck,” this condition is characterized by excess neck skin that sags to the middle of the neck area, leaving you feeling uncomfortable with your appearance. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we can combine our neck lift and facelift procedures to smooth neck lines and restore your skin to a more youthful appearance!

We consider the neck to be part of your overall facial profile. Excess skin in the neck area can take away from the youthfulness in your face, and vice versa. To combat loose skin and excess fatty deposits on your neckline, consider one of our neck lift procedures. We offer liposuction for a simple slimming and shaping of the neck, as well as more advanced procedures for excess skin and soft tissues.

Our neck lift procedure can tighten skin to create not only a sharper neck line, but also to improve the definition of your jaw to enhance your expression! In addition, our New York Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, offers the revolutionary LazerLift procedure to remove sagging skin without scalpels, stitches, or scars! LazerLift uses precise laser technology to tighten skin and promote structural lifting in as little as half an hour.

Even after undergoing LazerLift or a neck lift procedure, however, sagging in the cheeks or excessive facial wrinkles can negate those great results! To combat this possibility, patients often combine their neck lift procedure with a facelift in order to balance out their expression. A facelift can correct these issues and elevate the face’s soft tissue to achieve a more natural and youthful look. By combining our facelift procedures with a neck lift, you can improve your entire profile at once!

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 neck lift or facelift procedures. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!

Cosmetic Injectables to Redefine Your Expression!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, MARCH 11, 2015 AT 3:19 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Spring is on the horizon and it’s time to rejuvenate your expression! As we age, our skin begins to produce less of the necessary proteins and sugars to maintain a youthful complexion. As skin starts to thin and lose elasticity, wrinkles begin to appear. External factors like sun exposure and the environment can also slow the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid—leaving you wanting to cover up your expression. Did you know that there is a solution? Cosmetic injectables can produce results with no scarring or stiches and virtually no downtime. Here at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, our fillers can revitalize any part of your face, from your eyes to your jawline.

Add Youthfulness To Your Expression

Suffering from under eye hollowness? Loss of volume under the eye occurs with aging, resulting in the appearance of sunken eyes that can prevent you from looking your best. Belotero adds volume and fills hollows to produce a more refreshed and youthful look!

Restore Volume To Your Cheeks

Your cheeks can also suffer from loss of volume. The appearance of cheek lines can make your face appear hollow and worn. Voluma XC is designed to work in the deeper layers of the upper cheeks to add firmness and volume to gaunt areas. Patients can also combine Voluma with Sculptra treatment, which is designed to encourage new collagen production in the cheeks to reinforce your skin’s firmness!

Volumize Your Lips

Consider Juvederm for a full pout. Juvederm is made from hyaluronic acid—a natural substance produced by the body that is responsible for keeping your face hydrated and looking fresh. A few injections can produce plump lips to accentuate your expression!

Define Your Jawline

A strong jaw commands confidence and attention. Our Radiesse treatment not only replaces lost volume in the jaw and chin, but it also rebuilds the structure of these areas with natural collagen found in the body! Radiesse is one of the longest lasting fillers and can add fullness for a sculpted, more defined jawline.

Our variety of cosmetic injectables can revitalize any part of your expression. With regular appointments, you can keep your appearance looking fresh for years to come! 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 Belotero, Voluma XC, Sculptra, Juvederm, and Radiesse treatments, as well as any of our other cosmetic injectables. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!

Planning Ahead: Body Sculpting In Anticipation For Summer!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2015 AT 7:05 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

We’re already halfway through winter, which means the time to hit the beach is getting closer! However, if you aren’t happy with the shape of your body following all those winter holiday feasts and are considering body sculpting to prepare for summer, then plan ahead! By undergoing your procedure now, you can give yourself enough healing time during the spring months for recovery and by summer, the optimal results will be reflected in a new you!

Bikini Top Curves

If you’re looking for bikini top curves, then consider a breast augmentation! Whether you’re looking to increase breast size, shape or symmetry, we can help you attain an improved and natural look. Our Vectra 3D Imagining system allows you to visualize the results you’ve always wanted and helps identify your exact needs! Whether you want to enhance your figure or recapture your former shape, talk with Dr. Elie to see how breast augmentation procedures can help you.

Tighter Tummy

No more hiding behind wraps and tankinis! It’s finally time to rid yourself of that stubborn layer of skin and belly that seems so impossible to remove. There are a few potential causes of this extra layer of belly fat. After significant weight loss, excess skin may continue to hang loose. In addition, abdominal muscles can weaken over time by factors such as pregnancy and obesity. However, a tummy tuck can correct these problems by removing excess skin and fat while also tightening abdominal muscles across the upper and lower abdomen, resulting in a flat, bikini-worthy belly.

Bringing Back the Backside

You can add volume to your derriere with a buttock augmentation! We combine fat grafting—the use of your own fat from your belly or thigh to add volume to the desired area—with targeted liposuction to emphasize and enhance curves. Whether you want to improve the shape or positioning of your buttocks, a butt lift can solve your issues in time for summer.

Smooth Summer Legs

Scared to show off your summer legs because of cellulite? Consider Cellulaze treatment! Cellulaze uses laser technology to dissolve fibrous connective tissues that create pockets of fat while also tightening skin and increasing thickness. Cellulaze can reduce cellulite by creating smoother skin and encouraging collagen production.

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 breast augmentation, tummy tuck, buttocks enhancement or Cellulaze procedures. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!

Prepare For That Summer Wardrobe With BBL Photorejuvenation!

POSTED ON TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 03, 2015 AT 7:22 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

It’s not just the face that matters! When you wear that strapless dress this Valentine’s Day, remember that your back and chest are exposed too. Oftentimes, these areas are prone to sun damage and age spots, yet they’re easy to cover up.

But when it comes time to show off your body, these areas prevent you from wearing your favorite dress for a night out. If you’re worried about sun damage and pigmentation problems, then consider BBL photorejuvenation!

BBL uses intense pulses of broadband light energy to break up pigments attributed to sun-damage and aging spots. At the same time, heat from the pulses encourage natural collagen production in the body, which allows for improvements in skin tone and texture after treatment.

Your skin won’t just look younger, however! Studies show that BBL treatment can even make your cells appear younger on the molecular level by changing the gene expression of each cell to a more youthful-looking state!

Several sessions of BBL treatment are often needed to produce desired results. However, BBL requires no downtime afterwards and results are long-lasting!

If you want to slip into your sexiest outfit for that special someone on Valentine’s Day without fear of sun damage or age spots, then consider BBL for all areas of the body!

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 BBL photorejuvenation procedures. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!

Combine Diet and Exercise with Body Sculpting for Optimal Results This Year

POSTED ON THURSDAY, JANUARY 22, 2015 AT 9:44 AM by Dr. Elie Levine

If you are considering a body sculpting procedure such as liposuction this new year, preparing for your procedure by following a healthy lifestyle will allow you to maintain those fantastic results. In order to get the most out of any surgery, it is recommended that you lay the groundwork for success by eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly.

The goal is to lose excess weight and make your procedure safer and more effective.

A general guideline for body sculpting preparation is to get as close to your ideal bodyweight as possible before surgery. Liposuction is NOT a substitute for weight loss!

Instead, it is an excellent option for patients looking to sculpt their body by smoothing areas of excess fat—especially particularly stubborn areas that do not respond well to exercise and weight loss attempts, such as flanks, outer and inner thighs, and the lower belly.

Here at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, our liposuction and body sculpting procedures are custom designed to suit each individual patient. Dr. Elie Levine, Dr. Jody Levine and their staff will be happy to meet with you to discuss any questions you may have about body sculpting. Please call our New York office at 212-988-1800 or request an appointment online for a personal consultation!
