Say I Do With Belotero in New York!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, JUNE 20, 2013 AT 5:49 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Are you getting ready to say, “I do” this summer? As many brides and grooms prepare to exchange their special vows, both men and women will begin seeking last minute preparations for the “big day.” While most wedding checklists include bouquets of flowers, entertainment, and decorations, an increasing number of brides and grooms are seeking last minute facial rejuvenation for a more youthful appearance before the start of the new chapter in their lives. Hoping to fill facial lines and wrinkles in time for the special occassion, you can now prepare your look with the latest dermal filler in New York, Belotero.

FDA approved for injection into the mid-to-deep dermis, Belotero is a newer generation hyaluronic acid that is molecularly tweaked to fill superficial fine lines and wrinkles. Using double cross linked hyaluronic acid, Belotero adds volume to the skin and creates a smoother looking appearance.

Unlike other dermal fillers, Belotero is injected much more superficially. In addition, Belotero adapts to the individuality of a patient’s skin, softening lines and wrinkles around both the nose and the mouth. Belotero can treat:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Lipstick lines
  • Worry lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Marionette lines
  • Smiles lines
  • Perioral lines

Similar to Juvederm in NY® and Restylane®, Belotero fills facial lines, much like collagen. Collagen, one of the first dermal fillers, was doctors' go-to choice of facial rejuvenation for superficial lines until the mid-2000s when hyaluronic fillers became available. While collagen only lasted about three months, today’s dermal fillers containing skin’s natural ingredient, Hyaluronic Acid, are longer lasting. At last, Belotero combines both the beautiful results of collagen for superficial lines, as well as the long-lasting, natural results of hyaluronic acid.

NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, stays at the forefront of medical advancements in dermatology and is now proud to offer Belotero in New York. Say your “I do” with a youthful appearance! Our doctors and staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about Belotero. Contact our New York City office at 212.988.1800, or request your appointment online today for a personal consultation with Dr. Jody Levine.

Slim & Sexy With Tummy Tuck in New York City

POSTED ON TUESDAY, JUNE 18, 2013 AT 3:03 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Washboard abs are difficult to achieve even with diet and exercise. Living a healthy lifestyle can help you shed the pounds, but sagging skin and stretched stomach muscles may not be able to bounce back to their original shape. In these instances, tightening the underlying tissues is your best bet to achieve the slim shape you’ve been working towards. Dr. Elie Levine offers tummy tuck in NYC at his private practice, Plastic Surgery & Dermatology in NYC, so patients can come closer to reaching their aesthetic goals.

Hormonal changes, age, child birth, diet, and exercise are all factors which affect the shape of your body, but even people with healthy diets and dedicated exercise regiments can have trouble contouring their abdomen. A tummy tuck can actually tighten the underlying muscles and tissues of your abdomen and remove excess sagging skin to restore the youthful balance and proportions to your figure. Dr. Elie Levine also offers a mini tummy tuck for qualified patients. This procedure is less invasive than the full tummy tuck, so patients can achieve beautiful results with less downtime. Dr. Elie can discuss if you qualify for the mini tummy tuck during your initial consultation.

Check out the beautiful results other patients have enjoyed at Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC by perusing our Before & After Gallery!









If exercise and dieting isn’t producing the quality results for your abdomen that you were hoping for, consider tummy tuck in New YorkDr. Elie Levine and his staff will be happy to meet with you to discuss any questions you may have about tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck, or body sculpting in New York. Please call our New York office at 212-988-1800, or request an appointment online for a personal consultation.

Botox is an Uncommon Cosmetic Solution

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, MAY 22, 2013 AT 5:37 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC offers cosmetic injectables, so patients can enjoy the benefits of noticeable results with minimal to no downtime.  Although cosmetic injectables, such as Botox, are primarily associated with temporary wrinkle reduction, Dr. Jody Levine can use BOTOX® Cosmetic to keep you looking young and fresh! The below procedures are just some of the techniques that Dr. Jody has perfected over the years to shape your smile, get rid of your gobble neck, and banish your bunny lines in a simple fifteen minute office visit!

Get Rid of Gobble Neck! The appearance of neck sagging is oftentimes worsened by thick bands of neck muscle. At Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, Dr. Jody can relax protruding bands of neck muscle that contribute to your gobble neck with BOTOX® in NYC. Using Botox to relax the bands of neck muscle can make your neck sagging appear less severe with less downtime.

Shape Your Smile! Patients are often concerned about the amount of gums they expose while smiling. Dr. Jody also offers a minimally invasive solution to reduce gum exposure. BOTOX® Cosmetic in Manhattan  will relax specific sections of your lips to help reveal less gum when you smile so the next time the camera flashes, you can show the world only the gleam of pearly whites. 

Banish the Bunny Lines! Frowning and facial expressions easily cause the formation of wrinkles and facial folds. Especially as time passes and skin loses its elasticity, skin also loses its ability to contract and recover from frowns and smiles and the many of emotions we express throughout a lifetime. Dr. Jody Levine utilizes Botox in New York to relax bunny lines above the nose. Bunny lines are often caused by excessive squinting while straining to see or think, but the use of Botox® will prevent your skin from wrinkling during these activities.

Dr. Jody Levine and her staff are happy to meet with you to discuss any questions you may have about BOTOX® in New York City and the many uses and treatment areas that Botox can enhance. Please call our New York office at 212-988-1800, or request an appointment online for a personal consultation at Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC.

Breast Augmentation in NYC Increases Breast Size and Enhances Curves

POSTED ON TUESDAY, MAY 07, 2013 AT 5:34 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Prepare your curves before summer arrives with breast augmentation in NYC! Increase your breast size, balance unevenly sized breasts, and enhance your feminine shape in time to fill out your summer wardrobe! Keeping up with the latest advancements in plastic surgery, Dr. Elie Levine offers several options for women looking to enhance their curves. These options include silicone, saline, and the 410 gummy implants. Understanding the differences between each will better assist you when it comes to determining which will suit your individual needs, desires, and body type.

Silicone implants: Filled with silicone gel, silicone implants are often preferred over saline implants for their natural feel. Silicone is close in texture to the actual breast tissue, causing them to move and feel more natural following breast enhancement.

Saline implants: Consisting of a silicone elastomer shell, saline implants are filled with sterile saline. This solution is similar to the fluids found naturally in the human body.

410 gummy implants: An advanced revelation in breast augmentation, the 410 gummy implant was recently FDA approved. The 410 gummy implant are made of highly cohesive silicone gel. They are praised for their natural and anatomical look.  

During your initial consultation, New York Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, will help you determine:

  • What size implant you should receive
  • Where to position the implant
  • What type of breast implant you should choose
  • Where to make incisions to minimize scarring

Unlike traditional plastic surgeons in NY, Dr. Elie Levine is highly experienced with all four incision options when it comes to inserting the implant. Placement of incisions during your breast augmentation will be determined based on your individual desires and anatomy. These placements include:

Inframmary: incision is made within the fold or under the crease of the breast. One of the most commonly used approaches; the inframmary incision offers the best visibility for placement of the implant.

Periareolar: incision is made around the nipple, usually along the lower half or inner edge. The pigment of the nipple helps conceal the scar.

Transaxillary: incision is made in the armpit area. Dr. Levine will guide the implant to the breast pocket using a probe usually equipped with a mini-fiber optic camera.

Transumbilical: incision is made through the belly button. Special equipment is used to help Dr. Levine tunnel under the skin and to the breast area. Placing the implants for optimal results can be challenging and relatively few surgeons use this approach. 

At Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, we look forward to helping you look your best in time for summer’s sexy styles. Dr. Elie Levine and our staff welcome any questions you may have about breast augmentation in NYC. Contact our New York City office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation.
