Facial aging can result in the gradual loss of definition and youthful-looking volume around your most distinguishable facial features. As we age, a loss of skin elasticity can lead to sagging wrinkles and folds, as well as lost volume. Common problem areas include the eyelids, brows, nose, cheeks, and chin. A variety of different facial rejuvenation techniques are available to address these areas of concern and ensure natural-looking results. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, plastic surgeon Dr. Elie Levine can incorporate eyelid surgery, browlift surgery, rhinoplasty, cheek lift surgery, chin augmentation, and fat transfer to bring about a youthful, natural-looking profile.
Contour The Eyelids!
The eyelids tend to droop over time, leading to sagging, as well as under-eye bags. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can reposition and remove loose skin from the upper and lower lids. By redraping excess skin, your blepharoplasty surgeon can reduce under-eye bagging and drooping lids for a smoother result.
Reposition Sagging Brows!
Fine lines and furrows may develop along the forehead. Browlift surgery targets these unsightly forehead wrinkles and creases. During a forehead lift, the brows are carefully lifted and loose skin is repositioned and/or excised to eliminate furrows that contribute to a tired appearance.
Reshape The Nose!
Patients may wish to reshape the nose to correct irregularities. Rhinoplasty can enhance the features of your nose to ensure a balanced facial profile. Any bumps or asymmetries around the nose tip, bridge, or nostrils can be corrected during nose reshaping. Patients can also undergo rhinoplasty to address breathing issues caused by a deviated septum or past facial trauma.
Lift The Mid-Face!
The cheeks may slip from their natural position over time, leading to the formation of smile lines. Undergoing a cheek lift can reduce the appearance of fine lines, as well as jowls. During a mid-facelift, the cheeks are restored to a youthful position and excess fat is redraped to ensure a smooth, natural-looking result.
Improve Chin Definition!
Chin augmentation utilizes chin implants to improve the appearance of a round or receding chin. During your chin implant procedure, your implant is carefully placed to ensure a natural-looking fit. Implants can be sized and shaped in accordance with your facial proportions to improve jawline contours.
Add Natural-Looking Volume!
Patients may experience a loss of facial volume as a result of aging. Natural fat transfer can replenish facial fullness using your body’s own fat cells. During your fat grafting procedure, fat cells are taken from a donor location, such as your abdomen, thighs, or flanks, using liposuction. Next, these fat cells are reinjected into the upper, mid, and lower face to smooth wrinkles and enhance definition. Patients can expect youthful, natural-looking improvements to their facial profile after undergoing fat grafting.

BOTOX® can improve the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines to promote a younger-looking profile. While many patients undergo BOTOX® injections to treat forehead furrows, crow’s feet, and smile lines, this non-surgical treatment can also be used on facial regions one would not expect. Dr. Jody Levine of Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC utilizes BOTOX® in a few unique places in order to bring about natural appearing, symmetrical facial rejuvenation results. Below are 3 unique BOTOX® treatment areas that can accentuate your facial profile!
BOTOX® injections can be used to treat bumps on the chin. This condition, often called “pebble chin,” can occur as a result of repeated facial expressions. Strategically placed BOTOX® injections can relax underlying chin muscles, producing a smooth, youthful-looking chin.
People with gummy smiles can opt for BOTOX® to improve their expression. Gummy smiles form when the upper lip pulls up, revealing your upper gums; this can make teeth appear smaller than normal. BOTOX® injections help keep the upper lip in its normal position to reduce the appearance of your gummy smile.
Under The Eyes
Did you know BOTOX® can improve bunny lines and rolls under the eyes? As muscles repeatedly contract due to squinting or other facial expressions, wrinkles or creases begin to form under the eyes and beside the nose. BOTOX® targets these areas of concern by relaxing underlying muscles to reduce tension.

With summer in full swing, patients can freshen their appearance in a pinch! Non-surgical treatments can provide youthful-looking, radiant skin without extensive downtime or recovery. Aging, stress, and genetics can all lead to wrinkling around the face, from your forehead down to your chin. However, thanks to cosmetic injectables that combat facial lines and folds non-invasively, you can achieve an immediate improvement in your expression. Combining different non-invasive treatments can provide balanced facial rejuvenation results. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, our variety of cosmetic treatments can provide a revitalized look in time for your next summer get-together.
BOTOX® To Ease Facial Lines
BOTOX® can treat facial lines around the forehead, eyes, mouth, and chin. BOTOX® relaxes facial muscles to ease wrinkles and smooth stress lines that contribute to a worn appearance. Since BOTOX® is non-invasive, treatments take under a half-hour to complete and require no downtime. Follow-up treatments are required to maintain your facial rejuvenation results.
Dermal Fillers To Add Volume
Like BOTOX®, dermal fillers can also treat facial wrinkles, including crow’s feet and smoker’s lines. Injectables, such as Belotero®, Juvederm®, Restylane®, and Radiesse®, utilize hyaluronic acid to fill areas of lost or depleted volume. Voluma® is another dermal filler option that can add fullness to folds around the cheeks. Voluma® penetrates deep into hollows around the midface to enhance cheek lines.
Dermal fillers can reinforce structure for a smoother complexion in as little as 20 minutes per treatment. These non-invasive procedures achieve temporary results and require follow-up treatments to maintain your new look.
Non-Surgical Lip Augmentation To Plump Lips
Dermal fillers can be used to achieve plumper lips by targeting lip shape and size for patients who are dissatisfied with the fullness of their pucker. Thin lip borders can be enhanced, while the lips themselves can also be volumized. Additionally, patients can opt for silicone microdroplet treatment to achieve longer-lasting lip augmentation results. During this procedure, silicone is injected evenly around the lips to encourage collagen production which helps reinforce the structure of the lips, producing a plumping effect.
Which Procedure Should I Choose?
Above are just some of the many non-surgical treatments we offer at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC! These procedures can be combined in order to achieve optimal results, depending on the specifics of your treatment. During your consultation, Dr. Levine will discuss which treatments are right for your particular goals.

Cellulite is often one of the top summer skin care concerns for patients. This condition is caused by structural issues in the skin’s lower layers and can result in unsightly dimpling around the lower body. Cellulite forms as underlying tissues contract and fat pockets become herniated, leading to uneven texture. Cellulite is more prevalent in women; however, men can also be affected. Factors like aging and weight gain can further accentuate the effects of cellulite. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we utilize a comprehensive approach when treating cellulite. Dr. Elie Levine can combine innovative laser cellulite treatments, lipo techniques, and fat grafting to improve skin structure and achieve a smoother, natural-looking appearance.
Cellulaze™ is a minimally invasive laser cellulite procedure that addresses stiff, fibrous tissue beneath the skin, as well as subsurface fat. The Cellulaze™ laser releases connective tissues that cause the herniation of fat pockets. Additionally, Cellulaze™ also promotes skin tightening benefits, as laser heat energy encourages collagen production to enhance skin elasticity around the legs, thighs, buttocks, and abdomen.
Laser liposuction can complement your Cellulaze™ procedure by sculpting the surrounding treatment area(s). Small deposits of fat are carefully removed from the body to achieve firmer curves. Dr. Levine can selectively contour the lower body using minimally invasive lipo techniques.
Dr. Levine may also combine fat grafting with Cellulaze™ and laser liposuction to improve skin texture. Natural fat transfer uses your body’s own fat cells to enhance volume around the treatment area(s). Dr. Levine can use liposuction to take excess fat from a donor area and then reinject these natural fat cells into the legs, thighs, buttocks, or midsection to add smoothness. Fat grafting can volumize the target area after cellulite treatment and reduce irregularities.

Are you looking to achieve a firmer, more-masculine physique this summer? Despite your best efforts, stubborn fat may be getting in the way of hard-earned results. Certain problem areas are extremely difficult to slim, no matter how much time you spend at the gym. Excess fat under the chin, as well as fat pockets around the midsection or back, can take away from youthful definition. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we understand that certain problem areas may be preventing you from achieving an athletic-looking body. We offer a variety of liposuction treatments to trim fat and enhance body contours.
Improve Jawline Definition
A defined jawline is among the most-coveted physical attributes, as a strong chin can enhance the entire facial profile. Submental liposuction targets excess fat underneath the chin to accentuate your jawline. These fat pockets often lead to the appearance of a double chin, which can result in a rounder-looking facial profile. Small cannulas are inserted under the skin to gently suction-out fat cells from the neck area. Additionally, technology-based liposuction techniques, including SmartLipo® and VASER® LipoSelection, can promote skin tightening by heating collagen fibers beneath the surface. These lipo procedures can achieve a more-defined chin line for patients. Additionally, submental liposuction can be combined with facial rejuvenation procedures, including a facelift or necklift, for a younger-looking appearance.
Eliminate Male Breasts For A Masculine-Looking Chest
For men suffering from gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts, lipo procedures can be used to help sculpt a firmer chest. Gynecomastia may result from obesity or genetics and is difficult to reduce through diet and exercise alone. During male breast reduction, excess fat can be removed with liposuction to improve chest definition. Traditional liposuction options, including tumescent lipo, super wet liposuction, and power assisted lipo, as well as technology-driven liposuction, can be used during this procedure. Gynecomastia surgery can also be combined to remove or re-drape excess chest tissue, reducing the size of male breasts. Together, these body sculpting techniques can promote an athletic-looking chest.
Enhance Back Contours
Back liposuction can remove stubborn fat from the upper, mid, and lower parts of your back to enhance contours. Liposuction can also eliminate mid-back bulges and lower back pockets. Depending on your individual treatment, either traditional liposuction or technology-based lipo may be utilized. Your plastic surgeon may also recommend back lift surgery to tighten lax back skin and promote sleek shoulders and back muscles.
Firm The Midsection And Flanks
The abdomen and flanks are among the most-troublesome areas for patients, as buildups of localized fat deposits often result in love handles at the waist. Abdominal liposuction is designed to remove stubborn belly fat and bulging. Eliminating excess fat from the abdominals and oblique muscles can promote a flatter-looking stomach. Additionally, a tummy tuck can surgically tighten abdominal muscles that have become weakened or stretched due to weight gain or substantial weight loss.
