Some Uncommon Uses For Cosmetic Fillers!

POSTED ON TUESDAY, JUNE 21, 2016 AT 1:30 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Dermal fillers are an effective option for volumizing various parts of the face to improve wrinkles or fine lines. However, did you know these non-invasive treatments can be used on other areas, as well? Cosmetic injectables are particularly useful for improving sagging earlobes, hollow temples, and gaunt hands! At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we offer different types of dermal fillers to properly address these conditions.

Improve Sagging Earlobes!

Over time, the effects of gravity may take their toll on the natural shape and contour of your earlobes. Aging, as well as the applied weight of earrings, can cause earlobes to sag downward, resulting in the appearance of wrinkles. Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm®, Belotero®, or Restylane®, are carefully injected into the earlobe to reduce fine lines and improve sagging. Cosmetic injectables can achieve plump earlobes in as little as 20 minutes.

Volumize Hollow Temples!

Your temples may become hollow as you get older, resulting in a loss of youthful-looking volume. The temples are located above the cheekbones. Loss of definition in these areas can take away from the rest of your facial profile and hairline. Strategically-placed cosmetic injectables can restore lost volume around the temples and achieve a fuller-looking facial profile.

Rejuvenate Your Hands!

The hands are the second most-commonly seen part of your body after your face. As a result, they are an important part of your day-to-day routine and interactions. Additionally, they are more prone to the effects of sun damage than less-visible parts of the body. The sun’s rays, as well as the natural aging process, can strip away younger-looking definition from the hands, causing underlying veins to become more prominent. Cosmetic injections use hyaluronic acid—a natural substance found in the body—to restore volume to the hands by filling in wrinkles. Thanks to cosmetic injectables, patients can minimize vein patterns under the surface of the skin without any downtime.

MiraDry® & SculpSure™ To Get Ready For Summer!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, MAY 19, 2016 AT 6:17 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

With the warmer weather on its way, now is the time to prepare for the summer months with a few non-invasive treatments! For those struggling with underarm sweat and deodorant stains, miraDry® is FDA-approved to eliminate excess sweat glands in under 30 minutes. Patients no longer need to apply antiperspirant. If slimming down for summer is your goal, then SculpSure™ may be right for you. This non-surgical laser fat reduction technique can remove troublesome fat pockets around the body to get ready for beach season. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, Dr. Jody Levine offers both miraDry® and SculpSure™ for patients looking to prepare for summer!

Say Goodbye To Underarm Sweat!

MiraDry® is a non-invasive procedure that targets excess sweat glands around the armpits. During your procedure, the miraDry® hand-piece gently suctions sweat glands closer to the surface. Next, specialized miraWave™ energy is delivered to the target area to eliminate sweat glands. Cooling technology soothes the surface of your skin during treatment to reduce any discomfort. MiraDry® targets both eccrine glands (which cause sweat) and apocrine glands (which cause odor), meaning patients no longer need to wear deodorant to combat these effects! Results are long-lasting and many patients see an immediate reduction in underarm sweat and odor.

Eliminate Stubborn Fat!

SculpSure™ can remove fat deposits around the body without the need for incisions or downtime.  This laser fat removal procedure uses special applicators that deliver heat energy, causing a disruption to excess fat cells. First, these applicators are placed above the treatment area(s). After being positioned, laser heat energy is delivered to stubborn fat cells, causing them to detach from your surrounding tissue. Over time, these fat cells are naturally removed by your body! Any discomfort during your SculpSure™ procedure is minimized, thanks to a cooling mechanism that soothes the surface of your skin. Patients usually see long-lasting improvements to their figure after undergoing SculpSure™ treatment. Maintaining a healthy diet and consistent exercise is recommended to sustain your body contouring results.

NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, and the staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about miraDry® and SculpSure™, as well as our other non-surgical procedures.

Get Bikini-Ready With These Body Contouring Procedures!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, MAY 12, 2016 AT 3:00 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Bikini season is almost here! Are you ready to hit the beach? Or are there certain aspects of your physique that you’d like to improve upon before trying on your bikini? Dr. Elie Levine of Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC offers a variety of different body contouring procedures that can tighten loose skin, remove excess fat, and improve definition. Patients can target the breasts, midsection, thighs, and buttocks for a firmer-looking physique with these treatments!

Enhance The Breasts

Patients now have more breast enhancement options available to them than ever before. Breast augmentation can increase the size of your breasts through breast implants, while a breast lift can provide a youthful-looking lift to your bust. Additionally, fat transfer can be combined with these breast enhancement procedures to correct asymmetries in size or shape using your body’s natural fat.

Tummy Tuck For A Tighter-Looking Abdomen

Even with consistent diet and exercise, bulging around the midsection may persist, due to lax skin or stretched stomach muscles. Tummy tuck surgery can carefully remove excess skin around the abdomen, while also tightening stomach muscles that have become weakened due to weight gain or pregnancy.

Remove Fat From The Stomach & Flanks

Liposuction can target troublesome love handles around the stomach and flanks. These small pockets of fat are often difficult for patients to remove through traditional weight loss methods. Our technology-based liposuction techniques, including SmartLipo™, VASER® LipoSelection, and SculpSure™, can slim love handles, stomach bulges, and more, while also promoting skin tightening for firmer-looking results.

Reshape The Thighs

Thigh lift surgery can address sagging thighs to achieve a shapelier lower body. During a thigh lift, loose skin around the inner and outer thighs is carefully excised and re-draped for balanced results. Thigh lift surgery can also reduce the appearance of skin rashes caused by chafing at the inner thighs.

Buttocks Augmentation For Firmer Glutes

There are two approaches to creating a well-rounded buttocks: accentuating gluteal curves and lifting the buttocks to a more youthful position. Buttocks augmentation combines fat grafting and surgical techniques to achieve firmer-looking glutes. Buttocks fat transfer utilizes your body’s own fat cells to add natural-looking volume, while a gluteal lift reshapes and removes excess tissue for a more defined buttocks.

NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, and the staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about breast augmentation, tummy tuckliposuction, thigh lift surgery, and buttocks augmentation, as well as our other body contouring procedures.

Know Your Breast Enhancement Options!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27, 2016 AT 10:44 AM by Dr. Elie Levine

For many, the term “breast enhancement” is synonymous with breast implants. While breast augmentation is a popular breast enhancement option for patients, there are a variety of procedures aimed at improving breast size, shape, and positioning to fit in with your individual profile. Patients can undergo fat grafting to provide natural-looking volume to the breasts, a breast lift to restore youthful-looking contours, breast asymmetry surgery to correct unevenness of the breasts and nipples, breast reduction to reduce overly-large breasts, and inverted nipple correction. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, breast surgeon Dr. Elie Levine provides different breast enhancement procedures to help you achieve your desired results. Know your options!

Improve Breast Size And Shape

Patients have numerous breast augmentation options to consider when looking to improve the size and shape of breasts. Breast implants can be customized to fit in with your individual body type, as well as your procedure goals. Saline, silicone gel, and gummy implants are all offered in either round or teardrop shapes to ensure natural-looking results that harmonize with your individual profile. Patients can also opt for fat grafting to provide natural-looking volume to the breasts. During your natural fat transfer procedure, fat cells are carefully collected from a donor site through liposuction—oftentimes around the abdomen, flanks or thighs. Once extracted, these fat cells are gently reinserted into the breasts to enhance contours.

Add Lift To Sagging Breasts

Breast lift surgery can lift drooping breasts to a more youthful position. Over time, breasts may begin to sag due to factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, and aging. A breast lift can surgically remove excess skin, while also lifting drooping skin to achieve youthful, firmer-looking breasts. Incisions are carefully placed around the breasts to remain inconspicuous.

Correct Asymmetries Or Unevenness

Breast asymmetries, including differences in breast size or shape, as well as nipple asymmetries, can be corrected surgically. Your breast surgeon may utilize breast lift surgery to reposition uneven breasts, as well as breast augmentation, to enlarge a smaller bust. Fat grafting can also be utilized to add volume and symmetry. Those suffering from nipple irregularities can undergo nipple correction to achieve natural-looking, symmetrical nipples.

Reduce Breast Size

Overly-large breasts may cause aesthetic concerns, as well as physical discomfort. Breast reduction surgery is designed to reduce the size and weight of breasts, while simultaneously improving shape and aesthetics and easing tension on the back, neck, or shoulders. Surgical techniques can remove and re-drape excess breast tissue, while liposuction can gently suction small amounts of breast fat to reduce the size of breasts. Male patients can also undergo breast reduction to treat gynecomastia. During male breast reduction surgery, excess chest tissue is carefully removed and repositioned to craft a more athletic-looking chest.

Improve The Appearance Of Nipples

Inverted nipple correction can target nipples that project inward or appear flat to improve nipple symmetry. This procedure can be completed in less than 1 hour and usually requires local anesthesia—making it a very common treatment for patients looking to enhance the appearance of their nipples. During inverted nipple surgery, tiny incisions are made at the base of each nipple to release tight tissue that contributes to an inward-looking appearance. Patients can expect long-lasting improvements to the shape of their nipples after undergoing inverted nipple correction.

NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, and the staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about fat grafting, breast enhancement, breast augmentation, breast lift, breast asymmetry, breast reduction, and inverted nipple correction, as well as our other body contouring procedures.

3 Reasons To Consider SculpSure™ To Slim Down Problems Areas This Spring!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 2016 AT 9:47 AM by Dr. Jody Levine

Did you know you can eliminate troublesome pockets of fat around the body without lengthy surgery or recovery time? SculpSure™ is a completely non-invasive laser fat removal procedure that can target stubborn belly fat, love handles, bulging flanks, and more! This FDA-approved laser treatment uses heat energy to remove excess fat cells from the body, resulting in youthful-looking contours. Dr. Jody Levine of Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC offers SculpSure™ treatment for patients looking to achieve a slimmer-looking profile. Here are 3 reasons why you should consider SculpSure™ this spring!

There’s No Surgery Involved!

Patients who are looking for a non-surgical alternative to body contouring can undergo SculpSure™ treatment without enduring any incisions. SculpSure™ targets fat cells by placing specialized applicators above the surface of the skin. These applicators deliver laser heat energy to the target area(s) to disrupt fat cells and detach them from surrounding tissue. The SculpSure™ machine simultaneously cools your skin during treatment to minimize any discomfort.

Quick Treatment With No Downtime!

SculpSure™ can take under a half hour to complete! The SculpSure™ procedure is performed in the comfort of our in-office treatment rooms and patients can return to their daily routine upon completing SculpSure™ treatment. Unlike other body contouring procedures, there is no downtime after your laser fat removal treatment.

Results Are Long-Lasting!

SculpSure™ delivers long-lasting results for patients. When fat cells are loosened from surrounding tissue, they are gradually processed and eliminated naturally by the body. Once these fat cells are removed, they cannot re-enter your system! However, patients are encouraged to maintain a healthy diet and exercise plan in order to sustain optimal results.

NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, and the staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about SculpSure™, as well as our other body contouring and liposuction procedures. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!
