Freshen up with Less Downtime with a Mini Facelift in NYC!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 2013 AT 5:02 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Beginning signs of aging in the mid face are caused by slipping underlying tissues. A lifetime of facial expressions and the wear of gravity cause the underlying tissues and fat pads beneath the skin to slip from their youthful positions, so you appear tired and aged even while feeling energized and lively. If your outward appearance no longer expresses how you truly feel, you may want to consider a brow lift or mini facelift in New York with Dr. Elie Levine. The advanced, minimally invasive procedures offered at Dr. Levine’s private New York practice, Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, allow patients to look refreshed without the downtime typically associated with traditional procedures.

Brow Lift: Although many plastic surgeons automatically resort directly to blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, to correct aging around the eyes, particular patients may better benefit from the subtle differences that the brow lift can obtain. During this procedure, the drooping brow is lifted into a more youthful position, allowing for a clearer expression, and tell-tale signs of aging, such as wrinkles and drooping upper eyelids, are smoothed. Meet with Dr. Elie Levine, the Director of Plastic Surgery, to discover if brow lift in New York is the right procedure for your facial rejuvenation.

Mini Facelift: With less downtime, risk, and scarring compared to a traditional facelift, a mini lift allows you to achieve beautiful facial rejuvenation with less recovery. During the mini facelift, the incisions are typically limited to the front of the ear. The connective tissue beneath the skin is elevated, repositioned, and tightened to create a more youthful foundation, and the skin is then smoothed back into position to restore a natural, firm, and youthful-looking appearance. Visit Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC today to discover if you qualify for the mini lift in New York!

One of the most noticeable signs of facial aging is wrinkles, sagging, and drooping around the eyes. Body language is an integral aspect of communication, but your appearance may be sending signals of age and exhaustion to others that you don’t actually feel.  Here at Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, we provide a variety of facial rejuvenation treatments to freshen your appearance. Dr. Elie Levine and his staff will be happy to meet with you to discuss any questions you may have about brow lift or mini facelift in New York. Please call our New York office at 212-988-1800, or request an appointment online for a personal consultation.

Information on Treating Hyperhidrosis in New York

POSTED ON FRIDAY, APRIL 12, 2013 AT 3:31 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Vibrant colors light the sky in light of spring’s arrival. As nature flaunts a new look, so too do clothing stores, updating hangers and shelves with the seasons latest trends. For people who suffer from excessive sweating however, clothing choices seem limited.

People who struggle with excessive sweating of the armpits, for example, often gravitate to darker colored clothing, jackets, and even double shirts in hopes of hiding sweaty armpits. While popular deodorants promise a solution to hyperhidrosis, patients often find they need a stronger solution. If you struggle with hyperhidrosis, talk to our NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine about hyperhidrosis treatment in New York

Hyperhidrosis affects over 8 million people in the United States alone. The causes of hyperhidrosis vary and may include neurologic, metabolic, or other systematic diseases, anxiety, hyperthyroidism, and menopause.   

At Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, offers BOTOX in Manhattan to temporarily stop and control sweating.  BOTOX, commonly used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, works to stop excessive sweating by temporarily blocking the chemical signals between the nerves and sweat glands. Excessive sweating will significantly reduce four weeks following treatment. Patients should schedule approximately one to two BOTOX injections per year in order to maintain results. 

While one of the most common areas of hyperhidrosis is the underarm, many people experience excessive sweating of the forehead, palms, and feet.  Both men and women benefit from treatment of excessive sweating. Sometimes men shy away from hyperhidrosis treatment in New York, as sweating is commonly associated with masculinity. However, it is perfectly normal and not uncommon for men to take control of excessive sweating.

Take control of your hyperhidrosis and enjoy being able to wear your new outfit without the worry of limited arm movement, stains, or embarrassing sweat marks. Our doctors and staff at Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, welcome any questions you may have about treatment of hyperhidrosis in New York. Contact our NYC office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today!

Lip Augmentation New York, Sexy Pouts For Spring Fever

POSTED ON THURSDAY, MARCH 28, 2013 AT 3:12 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

If your pucker isn’t as plump as you’d prefer, the many dermal filler options offered at Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC can help you achieve a sexy pout this spring without invasive surgery or an extended downtime! Dermal fillers add extra fullness around the border or inside the lip, and if needed, Dr. Jody Levine can utilize BOTOX® Cosmetic to relax the lines around the mouth. In fact, using BOTOX® Cosmetic simultaneously with dermal fillers during lip augmentation actually extends the longevity of your filler results!

Dermal fillers: Dr. Jody Levine, the Director of Dermatology at Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC offers a variety of dermal fillers depending on your preferences and cosmetic needs. These dermal fillers include Juvederm®, Restylane®, Perlane®, Radiesse®, and Silicone. In addition to providing a non-surgical method to achieve a plump pout, dermal fillers also provide non-surgical options for other cosmetic procedures, such as the non-surgical chin augmentation, non-surgical rhinoplasty, non-surgical brow lift, and non-surgical smile lift.

BOTOX® Cosmetic: As opposed to dermal fillers which plump the skin to smooth wrinkles and create full, sultry lips, BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable which actually affects the wrinkles appearance from under the skin. With age, skin loses its ability to gracefully expand and contract to accommodate facial expressions, causing wrinkles. Botox utilizes the botulinum toxin to blocks the nerves from over-stimulating your facial muscles, thereby relaxing wrinkles. BOTOX® is also often used in combination with dermal fillers to achieve both sexy and more youthful results.
