Breast Augmentation in NYC Increases Breast Size and Enhances Curves

POSTED ON TUESDAY, MAY 07, 2013 AT 5:34 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Prepare your curves before summer arrives with breast augmentation in NYC! Increase your breast size, balance unevenly sized breasts, and enhance your feminine shape in time to fill out your summer wardrobe! Keeping up with the latest advancements in plastic surgery, Dr. Elie Levine offers several options for women looking to enhance their curves. These options include silicone, saline, and the 410 gummy implants. Understanding the differences between each will better assist you when it comes to determining which will suit your individual needs, desires, and body type.

Silicone implants: Filled with silicone gel, silicone implants are often preferred over saline implants for their natural feel. Silicone is close in texture to the actual breast tissue, causing them to move and feel more natural following breast enhancement.

Saline implants: Consisting of a silicone elastomer shell, saline implants are filled with sterile saline. This solution is similar to the fluids found naturally in the human body.

410 gummy implants: An advanced revelation in breast augmentation, the 410 gummy implant was recently FDA approved. The 410 gummy implant are made of highly cohesive silicone gel. They are praised for their natural and anatomical look.  

During your initial consultation, New York Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, will help you determine:

  • What size implant you should receive
  • Where to position the implant
  • What type of breast implant you should choose
  • Where to make incisions to minimize scarring

Unlike traditional plastic surgeons in NY, Dr. Elie Levine is highly experienced with all four incision options when it comes to inserting the implant. Placement of incisions during your breast augmentation will be determined based on your individual desires and anatomy. These placements include:

Inframmary: incision is made within the fold or under the crease of the breast. One of the most commonly used approaches; the inframmary incision offers the best visibility for placement of the implant.

Periareolar: incision is made around the nipple, usually along the lower half or inner edge. The pigment of the nipple helps conceal the scar.

Transaxillary: incision is made in the armpit area. Dr. Levine will guide the implant to the breast pocket using a probe usually equipped with a mini-fiber optic camera.

Transumbilical: incision is made through the belly button. Special equipment is used to help Dr. Levine tunnel under the skin and to the breast area. Placing the implants for optimal results can be challenging and relatively few surgeons use this approach. 

At Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, we look forward to helping you look your best in time for summer’s sexy styles. Dr. Elie Levine and our staff welcome any questions you may have about breast augmentation in NYC. Contact our New York City office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation.

POSTED ON THURSDAY, APRIL 25, 2013 AT 10:56 AM by Dr. Elie Levine

Check out NY plastic surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, and NY dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, discuss liposuction in NY on the Dr. Steve Show. Dr. Jody Levine explains that liposuction in NY is not for weight-loss. Instead, lipo in NY works to sculpt areas not responsive to diet and exercise, contouring and shaping the body. Liposuction uses a tiny incision and helps to tighten the skin. According to Dr. Jody Levine, most liposuction patients are happy with their results and would do it again.

Freshen up with Less Downtime with a Mini Facelift in NYC!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 2013 AT 5:02 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Beginning signs of aging in the mid face are caused by slipping underlying tissues. A lifetime of facial expressions and the wear of gravity cause the underlying tissues and fat pads beneath the skin to slip from their youthful positions, so you appear tired and aged even while feeling energized and lively. If your outward appearance no longer expresses how you truly feel, you may want to consider a brow lift or mini facelift in New York with Dr. Elie Levine. The advanced, minimally invasive procedures offered at Dr. Levine’s private New York practice, Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, allow patients to look refreshed without the downtime typically associated with traditional procedures.

Brow Lift: Although many plastic surgeons automatically resort directly to blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, to correct aging around the eyes, particular patients may better benefit from the subtle differences that the brow lift can obtain. During this procedure, the drooping brow is lifted into a more youthful position, allowing for a clearer expression, and tell-tale signs of aging, such as wrinkles and drooping upper eyelids, are smoothed. Meet with Dr. Elie Levine, the Director of Plastic Surgery, to discover if brow lift in New York is the right procedure for your facial rejuvenation.

Mini Facelift: With less downtime, risk, and scarring compared to a traditional facelift, a mini lift allows you to achieve beautiful facial rejuvenation with less recovery. During the mini facelift, the incisions are typically limited to the front of the ear. The connective tissue beneath the skin is elevated, repositioned, and tightened to create a more youthful foundation, and the skin is then smoothed back into position to restore a natural, firm, and youthful-looking appearance. Visit Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC today to discover if you qualify for the mini lift in New York!

One of the most noticeable signs of facial aging is wrinkles, sagging, and drooping around the eyes. Body language is an integral aspect of communication, but your appearance may be sending signals of age and exhaustion to others that you don’t actually feel.  Here at Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, we provide a variety of facial rejuvenation treatments to freshen your appearance. Dr. Elie Levine and his staff will be happy to meet with you to discuss any questions you may have about brow lift or mini facelift in New York. Please call our New York office at 212-988-1800, or request an appointment online for a personal consultation.

Information on Treating Hyperhidrosis in New York

POSTED ON FRIDAY, APRIL 12, 2013 AT 3:31 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Vibrant colors light the sky in light of spring’s arrival. As nature flaunts a new look, so too do clothing stores, updating hangers and shelves with the seasons latest trends. For people who suffer from excessive sweating however, clothing choices seem limited.

People who struggle with excessive sweating of the armpits, for example, often gravitate to darker colored clothing, jackets, and even double shirts in hopes of hiding sweaty armpits. While popular deodorants promise a solution to hyperhidrosis, patients often find they need a stronger solution. If you struggle with hyperhidrosis, talk to our NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine about hyperhidrosis treatment in New York

Hyperhidrosis affects over 8 million people in the United States alone. The causes of hyperhidrosis vary and may include neurologic, metabolic, or other systematic diseases, anxiety, hyperthyroidism, and menopause.   

At Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, offers BOTOX in Manhattan to temporarily stop and control sweating.  BOTOX, commonly used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, works to stop excessive sweating by temporarily blocking the chemical signals between the nerves and sweat glands. Excessive sweating will significantly reduce four weeks following treatment. Patients should schedule approximately one to two BOTOX injections per year in order to maintain results. 

While one of the most common areas of hyperhidrosis is the underarm, many people experience excessive sweating of the forehead, palms, and feet.  Both men and women benefit from treatment of excessive sweating. Sometimes men shy away from hyperhidrosis treatment in New York, as sweating is commonly associated with masculinity. However, it is perfectly normal and not uncommon for men to take control of excessive sweating.

Take control of your hyperhidrosis and enjoy being able to wear your new outfit without the worry of limited arm movement, stains, or embarrassing sweat marks. Our doctors and staff at Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, welcome any questions you may have about treatment of hyperhidrosis in New York. Contact our NYC office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today!
