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.

Bikini season is here! Are there certain “problem” areas preventing you from wearing your favorite bikini? You may find yourself struggling to lose those last few inches of stubborn fat around your abdomen and thighs in time to flaunt your figure. However, advancements in liposuction techniques have made the process of slimming stubborn fat areas more efficient, less invasive, and resulting in less downtime compared to traditional techniques! At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we provide individualized liposuction procedures to target your problem areas and achieve your desired results.
Slim and Shape Your Body!
You can target unwanted fat with precision thanks to our VASER LipoSelection procedure. This technique uses ultrasound energy to remove fat from most areas of the body! VASER LipoSelection is effective for areas such as the thighs, abdomen, and back. During this procedure, ultrasound energy is used to eliminate fat cells while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed; this results in less bruising and discomfort compared to more traditional liposuction procedures. The VASER LipoSelection procedure also promotes skin tightening weeks after your procedure for progressive, natural-looking results.
Achieve A Tight Physique!
SmartLipo is another advanced liposuction technique. This method uses lasers to tighten skin and eliminate stubborn fat. SmartLipo is perfect for patients who want to slim down and firm up the neck, buttocks, or upper arms. In addition, SmartLipo can fight cellulite! Our New York plastic surgeon can combine SmartLipo with Cellulaze treatment in order to tighten skin and reduce dimpling in areas like the upper thighs and buttocks caused by pockets of localized fat known as cellulite.
Our 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 VASER LipoSelection, SmartLipo, and our other liposuction procedures. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!

Spring has officially arrived! It’s time to put away multiple layers of clothes and transform into a new you! If you’re not satisfied with your current curves, consider our breast augmentation procedure to achieve the results you desire. Thanks to technological innovations, breast implant procedures have never been more precise! Here at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we can help you visualize your results before undergoing surgery. Thanks to our state of the art Vectra 3D Imaging technology, you can visualize your desired results.
Mapping Your Physique
Our aesthetic simulation technology starts by mapping your current shape in order to produce high-quality 3D images of your body. These photos are conducted in the privacy of our office and are the foundation for your upcoming breast implant procedure because they provide the “before” model that our New York plastic surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, builds upon to create your 3D simulation.
Sculpting Your Desired Results
Next, Dr. Levine will use Simulation Sculptor Software to modify the 3D rendering of your “before” physique. Our surgeon will change the 3D images to reflect the expected results of your breast augmentation. You can see how implants will enhance your appearance to reflect the type of breasts you desire. Breasts can be enlarged, shaped, or even lifted until you are satisfied with the changes. You are in control of your results! In addition, our surgeon can better understand the exact results you’re looking for by seeing your changes mapped out on screen.
Developing a Plan of Action
After creating the perfect “after” image, our NY plastic surgeon can develop a personalized surgical plan to bring the results laid out on our Vectra 3D mappings to life. While results may not be completely identical to the 3D rendering, our Vectra 3D and breast augmentation technology work together to achieve the most accurate results possible—making your dream body become reality!
Our 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 our breast augmentation procedures, as well as our Vectra 3D Imaging technology. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!

As the warm weather approaches, you’ll be leaving behind sweaters, scarves and other cold weather clothes in favor of your favorite spring wear! However, as the layers disappear, you may find that you are self-conscious of what’s underneath—specifically sagging skin in the neck area.
Also known as “turkey neck,” this condition is characterized by excess neck skin that sags to the middle of the neck area, leaving you feeling uncomfortable with your appearance. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we can combine our neck lift and facelift procedures to smooth neck lines and restore your skin to a more youthful appearance!
We consider the neck to be part of your overall facial profile. Excess skin in the neck area can take away from the youthfulness in your face, and vice versa. To combat loose skin and excess fatty deposits on your neckline, consider one of our neck lift procedures. We offer liposuction for a simple slimming and shaping of the neck, as well as more advanced procedures for excess skin and soft tissues.
Our neck lift procedure can tighten skin to create not only a sharper neck line, but also to improve the definition of your jaw to enhance your expression! In addition, our New York Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, offers the revolutionary LazerLift procedure to remove sagging skin without scalpels, stitches, or scars! LazerLift uses precise laser technology to tighten skin and promote structural lifting in as little as half an hour.
Even after undergoing LazerLift or a neck lift procedure, however, sagging in the cheeks or excessive facial wrinkles can negate those great results! To combat this possibility, patients often combine their neck lift procedure with a facelift in order to balance out their expression. A facelift can correct these issues and elevate the face’s soft tissue to achieve a more natural and youthful look. By combining our facelift procedures with a neck lift, you can improve your entire profile at once!
Our NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, NY Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, and staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about our neck lift or facelift procedures. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!

We’re already halfway through winter, which means the time to hit the beach is getting closer! However, if you aren’t happy with the shape of your body following all those winter holiday feasts and are considering body sculpting to prepare for summer, then plan ahead! By undergoing your procedure now, you can give yourself enough healing time during the spring months for recovery and by summer, the optimal results will be reflected in a new you!
Bikini Top Curves
If you’re looking for bikini top curves, then consider a breast augmentation! Whether you’re looking to increase breast size, shape or symmetry, we can help you attain an improved and natural look. Our Vectra 3D Imagining system allows you to visualize the results you’ve always wanted and helps identify your exact needs! Whether you want to enhance your figure or recapture your former shape, talk with Dr. Elie to see how breast augmentation procedures can help you.
No more hiding behind wraps and tankinis! It’s finally time to rid yourself of that stubborn layer of skin and belly that seems so impossible to remove. There are a few potential causes of this extra layer of belly fat. After significant weight loss, excess skin may continue to hang loose. In addition, abdominal muscles can weaken over time by factors such as pregnancy and obesity. However, a tummy tuck can correct these problems by removing excess skin and fat while also tightening abdominal muscles across the upper and lower abdomen, resulting in a flat, bikini-worthy belly.
Bringing Back the Backside
You can add volume to your derriere with a buttock augmentation! We combine fat grafting—the use of your own fat from your belly or thigh to add volume to the desired area—with targeted liposuction to emphasize and enhance curves. Whether you want to improve the shape or positioning of your buttocks, a butt lift can solve your issues in time for summer.
Smooth Summer Legs
Scared to show off your summer legs because of cellulite? Consider Cellulaze treatment! Cellulaze uses laser technology to dissolve fibrous connective tissues that create pockets of fat while also tightening skin and increasing thickness. Cellulaze can reduce cellulite by creating smoother skin and encouraging collagen production.
Our NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, NY Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, and staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about our breast augmentation, tummy tuck, buttocks enhancement or Cellulaze procedures. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!
