Facial Hair Transplants in NYC on the Rise!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2014 AT 6:20 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

A recent article by the NY Post shares the reasoning behind the rise in beard transplants! In hopes of achieving the “hipster” look, men are turning to plastic surgeons for a fuller beard. Men with spotty beards describe their facial hair as looking “sloppy” or “incomplete.” Our NYC plastic surgeon offers NeoGraft for beard transplants to attain a more “rugged” beard without the use of scalpels and stitches, giving natural-looking results with no scarring. By transferring hair from other parts of the body, including the head and chest, men can achieve fuller beards.

Skin Care Tips From NYC Dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine

POSTED ON MONDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2014 AT 5:48 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Beautiful skin begins with a daily skin care plan. Sticking to a strict schedule of your skin routine will help you attain beautiful results in the long run and your skin will love you for it! Not sure where to start? NYC dermatologist Dr. Jody Levine shares some inside tips to get you started on flawless, younger looking skin!

Tip 1: Exfoliate only 1-2 x a week - not daily as that will promote more dead skin.

Tip 2: Use a glycolic or lactic acid moisturizer for super soft skin at night and a daily moisturizer with sunblock in the am- use one with green tea for the ultimate antioxidant and healthy skin.

Tip 3: Once a month, use a gentle glycolic peel to get rid of dead skin. For even softer and smoother results, try a mild laser peel with a Micro Laser Peel. These peels require no numbing and are usually painless. Some patients experience mild redness and slight peeling in the days following but the results are amazing.

Tip 4: Moisturize with products containing ceramides. Ceramides are naturally found within the outer layer of the skin and help the skin retain moisture. Adding lotions and creams containing cermaides will keep your skin moisturized and hydrated.  

Tip 5: Drink 1-2 cups of green tea daily.

Tip 6: Use a sunblock that contains zinc. This ingredient will help you protect from the full spectrum of UVA and UVB rays.

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.
