Correcting Aging Eyes with Eyelid Surgery In New York

POSTED ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2013 AT 5:01 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Perhaps one of the greatest gifts we take for granted, our eyes give us vision, personality, and emotion. The old time expression says that “eyes are the window to the soul,” but sometimes an aged appearance can cause a misperception of who we are before anyone ever gets the chance to look further. One of the most common causes of misperception is aging eyes. Eyes that are hollow, sunken, puffy, or wrinkled can add 10-15 years to your appearance and in more extreme cases, cause visual impairment. Luckily, you can correct aging eyes with both a variety of unique techniques, including non-invasive options and eyelid surgery. 

Non-Invasive options include:

BOTOX & Dermal Fillers: BOTOX cosmetic and dermal fillers are a viable option for patients who may not be ready for surgery. BOTOX for the eyelids will create subtle but natural changes, virtually subtracting years of frown lines from around the eyes and lifting the brow area. Fillers can aid in lifting the brow and fill in lower eyelid hollowness.

Fat Grafting: Fat grafting to the lower eyelids will bring fullness to sunken under eyes. Hollow eyes add years to your appearance. Filling in dense under eye areas improves both facial definition and rejuvenates the eyes.    

Laser Skin Resurfacing: A simpler, non-invasive option for eyelid rejuvenation, laser skin resurfacing will improve minor flaws, such as fine lines and wrinkles. Lasers skin resurfacing will tighten the skin and promote collagen.

For some patients, non-invasive options may not be enough to treat stubborn wrinkles, folds, and droops of the lower and upper eyelids. In these cases, our plastic surgeon, may suggest eyelid surgery. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both.   

Upper Eyelid Surgery: Removes excessive skin and some fat from the upper eyelids. Puffiness that occurs on the upper eyelids may cause you to look older and in some cases may impair vision as the eyelids drop over into your view of sight. Upper blepharoplasty will add an upper eyelid crease, improve hooding in the upper eyelids, and restore the natural contours of the upper eyelids.       

Lower Eyelid Surgery: Youthful eyes show fullness and definition. When your lower eyelids begin to sag, lower blepharoplasty will reshape the eyelids, giving you back beautiful, younger-looking eyes. Lower eyelid surgery is performed by repositioning the fat under the eyes and tightening the muscles and skin. Dr. Elie Levine will offer an approach that ensures the best and most natural-looking results.

Re-discover your youthful reflection and flaunt a look that echoes the age you truly feel inside.

Skin Deep Peels & Laser Acne Treatments in New York City

POSTED ON THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2013 AT 5:04 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Beauty may only be skin deep, but your skin’s appearance can directly affect your health, confidence, and well-being. A majority of the population suffers from acne, especially adolescents, but Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC treats patients of all ages, from infants to adults. Our New York Dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, can help reveal your inner beauty at any age. When acne persists into adulthood, you may want to consider laser treatments and chemical peels as options to restore both the youth and clarity to your skin.

Topical and oral medications are available treatments for persistent acne, as well as a proper skincare regimen.  In addition, our expert dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, offers laser acne treatment in New York City to minimize inflammation and scarring in adult patients. Although a combination of oral and topical treatments are still utilized, the addition of laser treatments to your skincare regiment can reduce breakouts and achieve smooth, healthy-looking skin. The laser targets both the surface skin and deeper tissue, encouraging the skin’s natural healing properties and increasing the production of collagen; your results will continuously improve even months after treatment.

Chemical peels in New York can also treat the appearance of acne. The chemicals used in our peels gently remove the outer, damaged layer of skin and stimulate the growth of new, healthier skin. Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC offers a variety of different peels tailored to fit your skincare needs, and Dr. Levine can recommend a specific chemical peel for you. Our treatment options include glycolic peels, salicylic peels, TCA peels, and specialty peels designed with your specific needs in mind.

Help Avoid Women’s Hair Loss with Tips to Maintain Healthy Hair

POSTED ON FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2013 AT 1:11 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Do you worry about hair loss? Throughout the years, your hair will experience changes. At a younger age, in your twenties, hair is at its peak health and beauty. Unfortunately, as you age, you will experience changes in your hair’s texture, thickness, and color, as a result of lower estrogen levels.

Help promote your hair’s vitality and glimmer at any age by taking an adequate amount of vitamins, including protein.  Hair is made of a special protein called “keratin,” limiting the amount of protein in your diet will affect your hair cycle, decreasing growth. Avoid drying peroxide formulas and heat treatments to help prevent hair damage as well. If heat treatments must be used, a sealing treatment can help protect the cuticle.

Learn more tips on how to promote hair growth, and how often NOT to wash your hair in this article from the LATimes: Hair Loss NYC
