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!

New Year, New Lasers: The Latest Advances in Skin Rejuvenation and Hair Removal

POSTED ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 09, 2015 AT 3:37 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Technology is always evolving. While society focuses on the latest new gadgets, we at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC are constantly staying up to date on the latest in medical advancements. Dermatologist Dr. Jody Levine has been at the forefront of innovative medical techniques for years, and when it comes to tattoo and hair removal, state of the art medical technology is more than just a trend, it’s a constant.

Skin Rejuvenation and Tattoo Removal with the PicoSure® Laser

The PicoSure® Laser from CynoSure® is the fastest aesthetic laser in the world—providing lightning fast speeds to go along with unparalleled precision. While standard methods of skin rejuvenation use nanosecond technology, PicoSure® provides over one thousand times more pulses per second to effectively shorten procedure times and achieve more noticeable results with fewer treatment sessions. The energy from the laser penetrates the skin at the precise depth necessary to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and scars. Unlike traditional treatments, which use intense heat and cause redness, the use of patented PicoSure® technology delivers better and faster results without the downtime.

In addition, the PicoSure® can be used as a tattoo removal tool. The laser successfully breaks down the ink on your skin into smaller particles that the body can more easily absorb. As a result, the existing ink is eliminated. Advancements like these make PicoSure® the newest and most efficient laser for both skin rejuvenation and tattoo removal. The PicoSure® also boasts a SkintelTM Melanin ReaderTM, which effectively determines the patient’s skin type—allowing for more personalized care.

Hair Removal with Vectus® Laser Technology

The Vectus® Laser is one of the most effective lasers for removing hair. Unlike traditional lasers, the Vectus® uses a wider attachment and Photon RecyclingTM technology to treat larger areas of the body in less time. By using a single concentrated beam to treat the area, there is no need for overlapping—effectively lessening treatment times and minimizing skin irritation.

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 the Picosure Laser for skin rejuvenation or tattoo removal and the Vectus Laser for hair removal. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!

Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation To Transform Your Appearance!

POSTED ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2014 AT 10:57 AM by Dr. Elie Levine

Surgical intervention is not the only option to obtain the look you've always wanted. With non-surgical browlift, non-surgical chin augmentation, non-surgical rhinoplasty, and non-surgical smile lift, you can achieve transformative results and look radiant in time to count down to the New Year!

During a time of year where holidays and festive gatherings tend to fill our schedules, many patients simply don’t have the time needed to recover from traditional facial enhancing surgeries. While traditional chin augmentation, rhinoplasty and browlift are more permanent anti-aging options, non-surgical options can be just as effective without the downtime.

At our NYC plastic surgery and dermatology office, we utilize some of the most advanced dermal and cosmetic fillers to enhance your look.

 

 

Non-Surgical Procedure

Utilizes

Targets

Outcome

Non-Surgical Browlift

 

BOTOX Cosmetic, Restylane, Juvederm or Perlane.

Sagging eyelids, hooding of the eyelids, or forehead wrinkles and lines.

Lift sagging brows to a more youthful position. Balance the muscles of the eyelid to create a subtle, natural-looking lift in the brows.

Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation

Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane or Radiesse.

Weak or receding chin.

Smooth both superficial and deep lines around the mouth, including radial lip lines, nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Can also fill thinning lips.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Smooth both superficial and deep lines.

  

Non-surgical facial rejuvenation is a great way to achieve quick and transformative results. While non-surgical options are temporary, lasting anywhere from 6 months to a year, some patients find that they enjoy their transformed look so much, they decide to undergo traditional surgical methods to permanently balance and fill out their appearance. Dr. Elie Levine will meet with you to discuss all of your treatment options thoroughly and help you determine your best course of treatment.

Dr. Elie Levine and our staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, PLLC, welcome any questions you may have about the non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today!
