Cellulite is often a top cosmetic concern for patients. Cellulite refers to the herniation of fat cells beneath your skin, which can result in unsightly dimpling. Cellulite is more common in women, but men can also be affected. Despite popular misconceptions, cellulite cannot be treated by simply removing unwanted fat; it takes a comprehensive approach and different techniques. At Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, leading plastic surgeon Dr. Elie Levine can address the underlying causes of cellulite using Cellulaze™ treatment, as well as a combination of subcision, liposuction, and fat transfer techniques. Learn more about these cellulite solutions below!
Cellulaze™ is an innovative minimally invasive treatment for cellulite that utilizes laser technology to achieve a smoother-looking complexion. Laser heat energy is delivered to the target area, disrupting herniated fat pockets below the skin. Next, the Cellulaze™ laser releases fibrous tissue bands that cause bulging. Additionally, Cellulaze™ can stimulate the production of new collagen fibers for enhanced firmness and elasticity. Cellulaze™ can achieve long-lasting cellulite reduction with minimal recovery time.
Subcision, Liposuction, & Fat Transfer
Subcision, liposuction, and fat grafting work together to improve skin texture and reduce cellulite. During this comprehensive cellulite treatment, a small needle is used to release the fibrous bands that contribute to dimpling. Additionally, liposuction can remove small amounts of excess fat around the target area to enhance contours. Fat transfer injections can add volume to the area and smooth asymmetries for long-lasting results.

There are a variety of minimally invasive liposuction techniques available to sculpt the body! Each of these lipo procedures can treat stubborn fat for natural-looking results. Liposuction can target multiple areas of the body, including the neck, chin, breasts, arms, back, midsection, legs, and thighs. At NYC Lipo, we offer multiple modalities to best fit your liposuction goals, including laser lipo, ultrasound liposuction, radio frequency lipo, and non-surgical liposuction. Learn more about our liposuction techniques below.
Tumescent liposuction utilizes a specialized numbing fluid to prepare the treatment area(s) for liposuction. The tumescent technique can reduce patient discomfort helping patients stay active. Tumescent lipo can treat both smaller and larger areas of stubborn fat.
Super Wet Liposuction
During super wet liposuction, a small amount of numbing solution (approximately half of the fluid used during tumescent liposuction) is injected into the treatment area(s). Super wet lipo can result in faster procedure times for patients. The super wet technique can be used for all areas of the body.
Power Assisted Liposuction
Power assisted liposuction can remove dense clusters of stubborn fat using a vibrating cannula. This cannula uses quick oscillations to break apart fat cells and can be extremely effective when treating larger areas of the body, such as the back or midsection.
SmartLipo® is an innovative laser liposuction technique that can remove smaller fat deposits with precision. SmartLipo® sends laser heat energy to the treatment area, eliminating excess fat cells and tightening loose skin for a firmer-looking result.
VASER® LipoSelection utilizes ultrasound technology to remove stubborn fat. During treatment, VASER® energy is delivered to the target area(s), separating unwanted fat cells from surrounding tissue and eliminating them. VASER® LipoSelection can also encourage the contraction of collagen fibers below the skin, leading to skin tightening benefits.
BodyTite™ combines radio frequency technology and liposuction to tighten lax skin and remove small amounts of stubborn fat. During your BodyTite™ procedure, radio frequency energy liquefies fat cells, tightens fibrous tissues, and encourages collagen production to achieve a slimmer, firmer result.
SculpSure™ is a non-invasive lipo technique that can remove fat pockets without undergoing surgery. SculpSure™ sends hyperthermic laser energy to the body using specialized applicators that are placed over the treatment site. Laser energy disrupts fat cells, resulting in their gradual removal from the body. SculpSure™ requires no downtime or recovery and patients can resume their daily activities immediately.
NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, and the staff at NYC Lipo welcome any questions you may have about tumescent liposuction, super wet lipo, power assisted liposuction, SmartLipo®, VASER® LipoSelection, BodyTite™, or SculpSure™, as well as our other body contouring treatments.

BodyTite™ is a revolutionary treatment to tighten drooping skin and remove small amounts of excess fat in one minimally invasive procedure! Patients looking to firm the arms, breasts, midsection, or thighs can opt for the innovative BodyTite™ system. Radio frequency (RF) technology liquefies fat cells and safely removes them from the body, while also tightening skin layers. BodyTite™ allows for precise body contouring results with minimal downtime and can be used on multiple parts of the body to achieve comprehensive improvements to your physique. Learn more about some of these ideal BodyTite™ treatment areas below.
BodyTite™ For The Arms – Firm The Arms
BodyTite™ delivers radio frequency energy to the arms to achieve slender, more-toned arms. During your BodyTite™ procedure, a specialized electrode is placed on your skin and a tiny cannula is inserted beneath your skin. Together, these two devices send RF energy to the skin’s lower layers, tightening skin and encouraging the production of new collagen fibers to enhance skin structure and elasticity. Additionally, small amounts of arm fat can be removed during BodyTite™ treatment.
BodyTite™ For The Breasts – Lift The Breasts
BodyTite™ can be used to carefully raise the breasts to a more youthful position. The BodyTite™ breast lift, also known as a scarless breast lift, can address sagging breasts without the need for traditional breast lift surgery. The BodyTite™ breast lift may be an ideal procedure for mothers bothered by lax breast skin after pregnancy or breastfeeding.
BodyTite™ For The Abdomen – Tighten The Midsection And Flanks
Both the abdomen and flanks can be targeted using the BodyTite™ system to achieve firmer-looking results. Loose skin around these areas may result in abdominal bulging or love handles. BodyTite™ can tighten hanging skin and remove small amounts of belly fat to achieve a slimmer, more contoured midsection.
BodyTite™ For The Thighs – Slim The Thighs
BodyTite™ for the inner thighs can achieve a firmer-looking lower body by addressing skin laxity and excess thigh fat. Unlike a surgical thigh lift, using BodyTite™ for the thighs requires minimal downtime and recovery.

Introducing the scarless breast lift to raise the breasts without undergoing traditional breast lift surgery! This minimally invasive technique utilizes the revolutionary BodyTite™ system to carefully firm and lift drooping breast skin. Unlike traditional breast lift techniques, BodyTite™ recruits radio frequency (RF) energy to tighten lax skin with precision. Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC is proud to offer this innovative new treatment to patients seeking a minimally invasive solution to sagging breasts. Learn how BodyTite™ can lift the breasts below.
How Does The Scarless Breast Lift Work?
When performing a scarless breast lift, BodyTite™ technology is used to achieve efficient skin tightening results by delivering radio frequency (RF) energy beneath the skin to stimulate collagen and firm the breasts. During your procedure, the BodyTite™ electrode is applied to the treatment area, while the BodyTite™ cannula is carefully inserted beneath the skin through a 1-2 millimeter incision. The electrode and cannula work together to deliver radio frequency energy to the skin. This energy can achieve immediate skin contraction at the surface of your skin, while also encouraging the production of subsurface collagen fibers to improve skin structure.
Who Are Ideal Candidates For A Scarless Breast Lift?
Mothers who are experiencing sagging skin around the breasts after pregnancy or breast feeding may be ideal candidates for a scarless breast lift. Additionally, patients who would like to lift the breasts with minimal downtime and recovery may be candidates for the BodyTite™ breast lift.
What Kind Of Results Can I Expect?
The scarless breast lift can achieve long-lasting enhancements to breast contours. Patients can expect immediate skin firming benefits after undergoing treatment, with results continuing to improve in the subsequent months. Scarless breast lift patients experience minimal recovery and downtime and many patients can resume daily activities immediately following treatment.
Can I Combine My Scarless Breast Lift With Breast Augmentation?
Depending on the specifics of your procedure, the scarless breast lift may be combined with breast augmentation using breast implants or natural fat grafting to achieve substantial 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 the scarless breast lift and BodyTite™ treatment.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we would like to acknowledge the millions of women bravely fighting this disease. For many breast cancer patients, treatment can bring about substantial physical changes—especially for those who have underwent a mastectomy or double mastectomy. Breast reconstruction is an important part of the recovery process for many breast cancer patients and can help restore a sense of self after undergoing a mastectomy. Thanks to technological advancements, there are now numerous surgical options available to help reconstruct the breasts post-mastectomy, including breast implants, fat grafting, and tissue flap surgery. When choosing which form of breast reconstruction is right for you, your plastic surgeon can work closely with you to determine the best treatment option. In many cases, a combination procedure may be recommended to achieve an optimal result. Symmetry procedures on the other side may be of benefit in patients with one-sided breast cancer. Options include lift, augmentation, reduction, or fat transfer to achieve better symmetry. Learn more about these breast reconstruction techniques below.
Breast augmentation is designed to add natural-looking size and shape to the breasts. When undergoing breast reconstruction, patients can opt for breast implants, natural breast augmentation using fat grafting, or tissue flap surgery, depending on their treatment goals.
Breast implants are specially made to complement your body type. Implants are available in different sizes, as well as shapes (round and teardrop) to fit the body size of each patient.
Fat grafting, also known as fat transfer, can complement breast implants by volumizing the surrounding areas using your body’s natural fat cells. These fat cells are first taken from a donor location (usually the thighs, flanks, or abdomen) using liposuction. After being collected, your natural fat is then injected into the breasts to add shape and smooth asymmetries.
During tissue flap surgery, skin, muscle, and fat are taken from the back or abdomen and used to reconstruct the breasts. Since this method uses your body’s own skin and muscle, tissue flap surgery can achieve realistic-looking results.
Breast Lift Surgery
Breast lift surgery can yield substantial results and is often combined with the above breast augmentation or fat grafting techniques for those who have underwent a mastectomy or double mastectomy. During a breast lift, the breasts are raised to a more youthful position and breast tissue is carefully redraped or removed, if necessary, to achieve natural-looking contours.
