Achieve Graceful Curves with Submental Liposuction and LazerLift!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2015 AT 3:11 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Advancements in technology have allowed for some of the most minimally-invasive treatments available! Patients who have concentrated pockets of excess fat can now target these areas with precision. One such location is the area underneath the chin. These excess fat cells—also known as submental fat cells—are often tough to eliminate with traditional methods of fat loss.

Cutting-edge procedures, however, have allowed for the specific targeting of these cells to reduce submental fullness. New York plastic surgeon Dr. Elie Levine can combine numerous procedures to achieve a graceful neck and jawline, including submental liposuction, SmartLipo, VASER® LipoSelection, and LazerLift, among others.

Submental Liposuction

Submental liposuction can target the area underneath the chin, as well as the upper neckline, to help create natural-looking contours. Patients with a moderate amount of excess fat can undergo submental liposuction to gently remove localized fat from the submental area.

Advanced Liposuction Techniques

Additionally, specialized liposuction methods can aid in crafting an elegant facial profile. VASER® LipoSelection utilizes ultrasound energy to selectively target submental fat cells, while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. SmartLipo® is another minimally-invasive option that delivers controlled laser energy to firm skin and remove small pockets of fat.

LazerLift

Once excess fat is removed, Dr. Levine can sculpt the submental area to add youthful definition! LazerLift is a minimally-invasive option to tighten sagging skin for smooth curves around the chin and jawline. LazerLift uses laser technology to safely heat the area under the surface of your skin to promote tissue tightening and stimulate natural collagen production for sculpted, natural-looking results.

These are just some of our submental fat solutions! Dr. Levine will help craft a personalized treatment plan to suit your specific needs and desired results.

Summer Solutions to Accentuate Facial Contours!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 20, 2015 AT 10:32 AM by Dr. Elie Levine

Are you unsatisfied with your facial features and looking to achieve a more refreshed appearance and enhance contours? Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC offers facial rejuvenation solutions that can treat a host of conditions, including loss of facial volume or definiton, hollowing, and facial folds. Our procedures can be combined depending on the needs of each patient in order to produce optimal results. NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, is dedicated to offering specialized facial rejuvenation solutions that satisfy your treatment goals. Below are just some of our innovative procedures!

Browlift – Lift Your Expression!

Over time, the skin above the brow can droop as a result of aging, heredity, stress, sun exposure, and muscle activity. This sagging skin causes wrinkles to appear around the forehead. In addition, excess skin may begin to hang over the eyelids—causing an older or even sullen look, in some cases. A browlift can lift the brow to reduce forehead wrinkles and achieve a more youthful appearance. Patients with mild drooping may be candidates for a non-surgical browlift, which utilizes BOTOX® Cosmetic or dermal fillers to ease forehead muscles that cause a pulling of the brow. A non-surgical browlift can achieve a “lifting” effect and restore lost volume around the eyes.

Rhinoplasty – Add Shape And Balance To Your Nose!

Looking to change the size and shape of your nose? Rhinoplasty can achieve a natural-looking, symmetrical nose for a more balanced facial profile. Rhinoplasty can also improve breathing issues for patients who experience functional problems, such as a deviated septum. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a viable treatment option for temporary results without extensive downtime; this non-surgical method utilizes dermal fillers to correct nose size and shape to add balance.

Chin Augmentation – Enhancements For A Sculpted Chin!

A defined chin can be one of the most noticeable components of your overall facial profile. Enhancements to the shape and size of your chin can accentuate surrounding facial features. A chin augmentation uses chin implants to improve overall chin and jawline porportion. Patients seeking a less-invasive alternative may explore non-surgical chin augmentation options using dermal fillers to reshape the chin and promote contouring.

NY 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 a browlift, rhinoplasty, chin augmentation, or non-surgical treatments, as well as our other facial rejuvenation procedures.

Break Up Unwanted Tattoos This Summer with Laser Tattoo Removal!

POSTED ON TUESDAY, AUGUST 04, 2015 AT 11:14 AM by Dr. Jody Levine

Are sun spots and unflattering tattoos making you shy away from summer snapshots? Thanks to advancements in laser technology, there are a variety of safe and effective ways to reduce unwanted pigments and tattoos!

Here at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, dermatologist Dr. Jody Levine offers various laser treatments, including the PicoSure® laser—a breakthrough innovation in laser tattoo removal and skin rejuvenation.

The PicoSure® laser treats pigments faster than ever, thanks to picosecond technology that delivers approximately one trillion pulses of energy per second. Treatment is further enhanced by an adjustable pressure modulator—known as the Boost—which can magnify the pressure of the PicoSure®'s laser bursts and shorten the laser’s pulse to improve skin pigmentation. Once these particles are reduced, they can be easily absorbed by the body and removed from view.

The precision of the PicoSure® laser allows for less treatment time during your laser tattoo removal session with fewer overall treatments required. The PicoSure® laser can acheive fast results with less downtime than lasers that use nanonsecond technology. Many patients undergo anywhere from 3-8 treatments and see a tattoo reduction of up to 95%, though individual results vary from patient to patient. Dr. Levine will discuss your personalized treatment plan, as well as your desired results.

Benefits Of Using The Picosure® Laser For Tattoo Removal:

  • Faster, more efficient laser pulses
  • Reduced appearance of ink on skin
  • Fewer treatments and less overall treatment time per session
  • Less downtime than with nanosecond technology-based lasers

NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, NY Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, and the staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about the PicoSure® laser and laser tattoo removal. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!

Blepharoplasty & Non-Surgical Summer Repairs for Wrinkles!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, JULY 16, 2015 AT 7:18 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Summer’s in full swing, which means you want to look your best! While this is the time to enjoy the warm weather, too much sun may be contributing to facial wrinkling and lax skin. Squinting into the summer sun can create or worsen conditions like under eye bags, drooping lids, and crow’s feet. Here at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, plastic surgeon Dr. Elie Levine offers blepharoplasty, along with dermal fillers, to rejuvenate all areas of the face and achieve a younger-looking you.

Eliminate Under Eye Bags And Drooping Eyelids!

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can correct lax or excess skin around the eyes. Using the latest surgical techniques, our NYC plastic surgeon can achieve extremely precise results by either removing or repositioning loose skin and fat near the upper or lower eyelids. Correcting any bagging, hollowing, or bulging can give a smooth, youthful appearance and restore the eyes to a more natural-looking and vibrant state. Blepharoplasty can also be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as a facelift, laser skin resurfacing, or browlift, to ensure the best results.

Improve Skin Texture And Replenish Lost Facial Volume!

Does your appearance make you look older than you actually feel? Factors like overexposure to sunlight, aging, and facial expressions can lead to increased facial wrinkling, hollows, and lines that may result in a worn appearance. A gradual loss of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in the skin can lead to increased laxity and large creases.

Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC offers a variety of non-surgical treatments to rejuvenate skin! Conditions such as crow’s feet, facial wrinkling, and loss of facial volume or skin texture can be addressed with various treatment options, as there is no specific treatment method for each condition. Rather, Dr. Elie Levine provides personalized solutions to fit each patient’s individual needs and may utilize a combination of different facial rejuvenation procedures to achieve optimal results. The following are just some of our innovative facial rejuvenation solutions.

BOTOX can relax facial lines and smooth creases around the forehead, eyes, and mouth, among others. Different treatments, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and Xeomin®, can be used to treat your specific needs.

Laser skin resurfacing is another non-surgical solution to worn skin! Laser skin resurfacing can be used to target both the surface layer of skin and underlying layers. Dr. Elie Levine uses the PicoSure® laser to deliver precise laser treatment that encourages the growth of fresh skin cells and increases natural collagen production within the body.

Dermal fillers can improve skin texture and restore lost facial volume. Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid—a natural sugar found in the body—to add volume to facial folds, smooth wrinkles, and correct hollows to restore a youthful appearance.

NY Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, and staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about blepharoplasty, dermal fillers, and our other facial rejuvenation procedures.

Treatments for Smooth, Beautiful Skin for Your Upcoming Getaway!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, JULY 02, 2015 AT 5:40 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Happy Independence Day, from Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC! It’s time to start thinking about that summer getaway. Do you want smooth skin in time for vacation? NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, offers a variety of skin treatments for clear, beautiful skin. Laser hair removal can permanently remove unsightly hairs so you can flaunt that bikini, while our ThermaScan laser treatment can keep skin looking acne-free!

Zap Unwanted Hair At The Root!

The Vectus® Laser is the latest tool in laser hair removal! The Vectus® uses Photon Recycling™ to remove hair quickly and with less skin irritation than more traditional hair removal methods. By transferring light down the shaft of the hair, the Vectus destroys follicles at the root. Vectus laser hair removal can target any areas of hair growth on the body, from concentrated areas to larger, more expansive body parts, such as the back and chest. The Vectus® also contains a Skintel™ Melanin Reader™ that can measure the average amount of melanin in your skin—determining your recommended treatment setting. This allows for personalized and more efficient care.

Control Acne and Oily Skin!              

If you’re not seeing the results you want with traditional acne solutions, then consider laser acne treatment! ThermaScan laser treatment penetrates deep into the skin to promote new collagen growth and reduce oil production in as little as 30 minutes a treatment. Not only can ThermaScan be used to treat facial acne, but it can also be used as a solution to acne on the back and chest. This non-invasive treatment has virtually no downtime and you can resume daily activities immediately.
