Increased Alcohol Consumption Raises Risk for Melanoma

POSTED ON THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2014 AT 1:25 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

According to a new study, drinking alcohol regularly may increase your risk of developing melanoma by 55%! Researchers also note past studies have shown a relationship between alcohol intake and an increase in sunburn, adding alcohol can affect behavior, causing subjects to stay out in the sun too long, or forget to regularly apply sunscreen.

Weight Loss Tips Before Considering Plastic Surgery in NY

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2014 AT 7:09 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Setting small, short term goals is a great way to break up the steps to achieve long term weight loss. Having a long term goal of losing one, three, or even five dress sizes for your New Year’s Resolution (depending on your current weight) is great, but how do you intend to jump to that end result? Exercise and diet are wonderful means of becoming fit and healthy. If you’re considering plastic surgery, such as body lift, to remove excess skin after your weight loss, Dr. Elie Levine has a few diet and exercise tips to keep in mind while losing weight:

Exercise: Develop a regular exercise routine that you enjoy and can manage within your busy schedule. Undergoing surgery at a weight that you can maintain is important in order to achieve long term results. Remember to continue your exercise schedule even after surgery!

Diet: Dr. Elie Levine does not recommend the use of fad diets. The best diets are the ones that can be maintained both before and after surgery. Remember to eat 3 balanced meals per day and avoid nighttime snacks.

Plastic Surgery: Body sculpting procedures should be performed when you are at an ideal body weight. This weight should be your long term target weight that can be maintained throughout a lifetime.

Make your weight loss goals a reality this year! Dr. Elie Levine and his staff will be happy to meet with you to discuss any questions you may have about plastic surgery and body lift in New York. Please call our New York office at 212-988-1800, or request an appointment online for a personal consultation.
