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.

Looking to restore a youthful glow to your facial profile? As we get older, our age inevitably starts to catch up to our appearance in one form or another. Facial tissues begin to sag, leaving creases and folds that contribute to a worn look. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, Dr. Elie Levine specializes in facial rejuvenation procedures to improve facial contours and definition for natural-looking results. Below are just a few of our facial surgery solutions that can be combined to achieve a more youthful you!
Reinvigorate The Eyes
Eyelid surgery can lift the eyelids back to a natural position in order to improve the appearance of your gaze. Also known as blepharoplasty, this facial rejuvenation technique removes excess or sagging skin around the eyes to restore youthful contours to the upper lids. Patients who suffer from under-eye bags, puffiness, or hooding around the eyelids can opt for blepharoplasty to reduce the appearance of these troublesome issues. Combining a facelift with a blepharoplasty will enhance your results and create facial harmony.
Restore Facial Contours
Facelift surgery targets loose and sagging skin around all areas of the face. A facelift can smooth wrinkles and deep creases by elevating soft tissue and tightening lax skin. Jowls can also be corrected through facelift surgery. Undergoing a facelift and fat transfer can restore volume and improve facial definition for long-term results.
Replenish Jaw Line Definition
Many patients consider the chin a cosmetic concern. A receding jaw line can result in a rounded facial profile. Chin implant surgery can add definition to the chin for a prominent-looking jaw line that inspires confidence. Chin implants can be shaped and sized according to your specific goals and desires, allowing for chin augmentation results that enhance your individual facial profile. Placing a chin implant in combination with a neck lift will produce a more balanced and complete youthful appearance.
Revitalize The Neck Line
If your neck is affected by aging in the form of drooping skin and neck bands, a neck lift may be a viable option for you. Neck lift surgery can tighten lax and sagging neck skin to create a defined neck line. Undergoing a neck lift can complement blepharoplasty, facelift and chin augmentation results, while cosmetic fillers can add temporary volume to areas of the neck without undergoing surgery.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer found in women, and approximately one in eight women will be affected over the course of their lives. Additionally, thousands of men develop breast cancer each year. Breast Cancer Awareness Month not only reminds us of those who have been diagnosed and have fought breast cancer so bravely, but it also raises awareness about options following surgery that many women may not realize are available. The decision to undergo breast reconstruction after breast cancer is an important decision in the recovery process for many survivors. There are numerous questions that need to be considered when undergoing a breast reconstruction procedure post-mastectomy to determine the best option for you.
What Are My Options?
Patients can choose from three types of breast implants: silicone gel implants, saline implants, and gummy implants. All three of these options come in different implant shapes for natural-looking results, including round and teardrop-shaped implants. A tissue expander is used to slowly stretch the skin and muscle in order to create a pocket in which to place your breast implant.
Tissue Flap Surgery
Tissue flap surgery utilizes skin, muscle, and fat from your body to produce a more natural-looking appearance. Tissue flaps can be taken from a variety of areas, including the back and abdomen. While the tissue flap method can produce more realistic-looking results, it is important to know that these procedures are more invasive—requiring more downtime after surgery.
Autologous fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, is another breast reconstruction procedure that harvests fat cells from other parts of your body to recreate a breast. This fat is carefully collected to ensure survival during the transfer. Once processed, these cells are injected into the breast area.
What Results Can I Expect?
All three of these procedures can produce natural-looking results and help restore the appearance of breasts. Depending on the procedure, it may take weeks, or even months, for your final results to take shape. Once they are achieved, however, they are long-lasting.
Breast plastic surgeon Dr. Elie Levine will sit down and discuss each breast reconstruction option with you in order to create a treatment plan to achieve natural-looking results that fit your goals and desires.

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 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.
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.
