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.

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.
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 submental liposuction, male breast reduction, back lipo, and abdominal liposuction, as well as our other body contouring procedures.

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.

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.
