Shape Sensational Summer Curves

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 11, 2014 AT 9:58 AM by Dr. Elie Levine

Do you wish you could show off your toned body in that itsy-bitsy yellow polka-dot bikini, but your breast size or asymmetry is preventing you from finding the perfect-fitting bikini? If you’re dissatisfied with the shape or size of your breasts, our New York City plastic surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, offers breast enhancement procedures to obtain the breasts you desire! Dr. Levine will work with your needs and body type to help decide the best treatment plan for you:

Increase Size: One of the most common complaints that women have about their breasts is a lack of size. Saline or silicone breast implants have the ability to increase size, add fullness, and correct irregularities. Our plastic surgeon will work with you to determine the best size for your needs and body type.

Get a Lift: If you’re satisfied with the size of your breasts, but feel they have begun to sag or droop after pregnancy, weight change, or aging, Dr. Levine can perform breast lift surgery. This procedure can add density and shape to your curves.  Although a breast lift cannot delay the natural aging process, your breast will be lifted into a more youthful-looking shape and position.

Enhance Shape Naturally: Breasts in need of a minor shaping or contouring are great candidates for fat transfer.  Using your own natural fat, Dr. Levine is able to enhance areas of your breast to give them a more shapely appearance. Fat grafting is an ideal choice for patients looking to correct asymmetries without using breast implants.

How do I know which surgery is right for me?

Our plastic surgeon will discuss treatment options to help determine the best procedure for your desired results. Using Vectra 3D technology, Dr. Levine can produce a visual image of your results before undergoing surgery to help determine the best treatment plan and create more accurate expectations.

After breast augmentation in NYC, enjoy the bikini shopping trip you’ve always dreamed of! Dr. Elie Levine and his staff will be happy to meet with you to discuss any questions you may have about breast augmentation in New York.

Tackle Trouble Fat with Liposuction in NYC

POSTED ON TUESDAY, MAY 27, 2014 AT 8:51 AM by Dr. Elie Levine

Get ready for bikinis and swim trunks with one of our most popular procedures for summer preparation, liposuction! Able to tackle fat, advanced liposuction in NYC also shapes your body and tighten skin. In the past, traditional liposuction was more invasive and could not target skin tightening. At Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, our New York plastic surgeon provides numerous liposuction techniques to produce beautiful, transformative, and natural-looking results.

SmartLipo Laser Liposuction: If you’re concerned by sagging or excess skin following your surgery, but are targeting delicate problem areas, you may be a good candidate for SmartLipo, a laser-assisted liposuction technique designed to liquefy fat cells. This simultaneously removes fat cells while stimulating collagen production for skin tightening. Smartlipo in New York City is incredibly precise, able to eliminate fat from the neck and face as well as traditional liposuction areas like the stomach, thighs, and arms. Patients will often request Smartlipo for its skin tightening abilities alone.

VaserLiposelection: If you’re interested in scalpel-free liposuction, Vaser lipo may be the best choice for you, using ultrasound energy to separate fat cells from fibrous tissue that helps the skin contract. For weeks after the procedure, skin will continue to tighten, helping the treated area become smoother and more firm. Vaser liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure, gentle enough to treat sensitive areas like the knees, back, and thighs.

Ideal candidates for liposuction are patients who are near their normal body weight and who display good skin tone and elasticity. Patients commonly combine liposuction with additional treatments like natural fat transfer to add volume to areas like the breasts, buttocks, or face.

Talk to our NY plastic surgeon today about which method of liposuction is right for you! Dr. Elie Levine and our staff at Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about liposuction in NY. Feel free to contact our NYC office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for a personal consultation with Dr. Elie Levine!

Sclerotherapy NYC: Show Off Those Bare Summer Legs!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, MAY 14, 2014 AT 4:05 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Are you ready to show off your summer legs but weary of the bulging veins lurking underneath your jeans? Over half of adult women in the US are stricken by spider and varicose veins on their calves and thighs. Although these veins are rarely a medical concern, they can cause you to feel self-conscious about the appearance of your legs. Don’t let embarrassing leg veins cramp your summer style! If leg veins are stopping you from busting out your Bermudas or showing off those short-shorts this summer, NYC dermatologist Dr. Jody Levine has the answer for you!

Sclerotherapy in NYC is a minimally invasive procedure for vein removal. This technique injects a solution into the vein which irritates the lining and causes the vein to collapse. Eventually, the unwanted vein turns into scar tissue and fades from view. Depending on the severity of your leg veins, multiple vein treatments may be needed.  Although most people are candidates for vein removal, women who are pregnant or nursing are not eligible for sclerotherapy in NY. Patients experiencing certain medical conditions, like deep vein thrombosis, should also seek an alternative vein treatment. Dr. Levine can discuss the best options available to treat your individual case of spider and varicose veins.

 Sclerotherapy is an out-patient procedure lasting 15 to 30 minutes . After Sclerotherapy, you will be advised to wear tight fitting support hose, walk frequently, and avoid strenuous activity. Although fully treated veins will not reappear, sclerotherapy will not prevent future veins from emerging.  Dr. Levine works with each patient to track the appearance of veins and their treatment progress. Check out some results from sclerotherapy


Sclerotherapy will allow you to show off those bare legs this summer! Our NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, NYC Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, and staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about sclerotherapy in New York. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!
