Re-Discovering Your Feminine Figure With Mommy Makeover In NYC!

POSTED ON FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 2013 AT 10:23 AM by Dr. Elie Levine

Becoming a mother is one of the most rewarding and life changing moments of a women’s life. While putting their child first, many women forget to find the time to take care of themselves. Age, pregnancy, weight gain, weight loss, breast-feeding, and late nights of caring for a newborn all affect the shape of your body.

When women decide to take some “me” time to re-discover their feminine figure, they may feel overwhelmed and confused by the amount of cosmetic and medical options available. The popular questions arise, asking what will work, and what is best for me?  At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology, PLLC, NY Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine offers the Mommy Makeover in NYC, restoring all problem areas women become self-conscious about after pregnancy. Re-discover your youthful body, and learn how the Mommy Makeover will help restore your breasts, body, and skin.

Breasts: Both pregnancy and breast-feeding cause the breasts to lose their firm and youthful shape. To restore lost volume to the breasts, Dr. Levine offers breast lift and breast augmentation in NYC. These procedures may be combined or done separately. A breast lift will not only improve breast shape and symmetry, it will raise breasts into a more youthful position. Similarly, breast augmentation will restore lost volume and create fuller breasts for an enhanced feminine figure. Dr. Levine offers both traditional options of breast enhancement, such as silicone and saline implants, natural breast augmentation, and the latest revelation in breast augmentation, the 410 gummy implants.

Body: In addition to restoring the volume of your curves, the Mommy Makeover involves liposuction and tummy tuck in NYC to trim your body to its pre-pregnancy state.  Even after dieting and exercising, stubborn areas of fat may still linger. Liposuction will sculpt and shape these diet resistant areas, such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, neck, butt, and flanks. For further targeting of stomach fat, loss of elasticity from pregnancy, and muscle recovery, patients may choose a tummy tuck, removing excess skin and tightening lax muscles in the abdomen.

Skin: Late nights spent caring for a crying infant may lead to wrinkles and facial lines. With our dermal fillers and cosmetic injectables, such as BOTOX in NYC, you can easily rejuvenate your look for a refreshed appearance. Additionally, we offer non-surgical facial rejuvenation, as well as surgical and non-surgical cellulite treatments, including Cellulaze™.   For stubborn stretch marks, ask about our laser stretch mark treatments.

Take some time out to treat yourself, and discover your youthful-looking post-baby body. Dr. Elie Levine and our staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, PLLC, welcome any questions you may have about the Mommy Makeover. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today!

Heart Throb Thighs with Sclerotherapy in NYC

POSTED ON TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2013 AT 11:58 AM by Dr. Jody Levine

Most couples used Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to truly appreciate one another. Whether you and your love decided to enjoy a romantic night out or a casual evening in, you wanted to look your very best. If clothing options seemed limited this year because of unsightly or embarrassing spider and varicose veins, however, you may want to consider Sclerotherapy in NY, a non-surgical vein treatment. Sclerotherapy Vein Treatment can minimize the appearance of your spider and varicose veins in a simple fifteen to thirty minute treatment, so you can reveal a little more leg for your heart throb.

Dr. Jody Levine, the director of Dermatology at Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, offers Sclerotherapy in New York for patients seeking relief from their spider and varicose veins. In addition to inciting feelings of self-consciousness and embarrassment, these veins are also often uncomfortable. Symptoms of physical discomfort may include aching, swelling, burning, and night cramps. With one non-surgical, fifteen to thirty minute treatment of Sclerotherapy, Dr. Levine can improve both the appearance and physical symptoms of spider and varicose veins.

During treatment, Dr. Levine will use a special light to visualize the veins beneath the skin’s surface and inject the sclerosing solution directly into the veins. The solution will cause the veins to collapse, dissolve, and eventually disappear. Although anesthesia is unnecessary, patients should avoid strenuous activity throughout the two weeks following this procedure. Daily light activities are encouraged, such as walking, and also the use of compression hose is required. Typically, patients will begin to notice significant improvement to the youthfulness, clarity, and health of their legs within 6 weeks. 

Enjoy daring slits and sexy skirts for your next night out, and dance the night away without the pain associated with varicose veins! With Sclerotherapy in New York, you can have the appearance of healthy and youthful legs that will make his heart skip a beat. Dr. Jody Levine and her staff are happy to meet with you to discuss any questions you may have about Sclerotherapy in NYC. Please call our New York office at 212-988-1800, or request an appointment online for a personal consultation at Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC.

POSTED ON THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2013 AT 10:46 AM by Dr. Elie Levine

Winter’s blistery chill is in the air. While most people see winter as a season of hot cocoa, gloves & scarves, and a reason to bundle up close to the fire, patients at Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, PLLC, find it is the perfect time to consider Body Contouring in NY! During the colder months, surgical procedures are more easily concealed as patients spend extra time indoors and can hide their surgery with abundant clothing. In addition, patients have enough time to recover from surgery and get used to their new look in time for the warm summer months! When it comes to Body Contouring, NY Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, can help you determine the right body sculpting procedure depending on your individual needs and desires. Learn more about a few of our body contouring procedures below, and let Dr. Levine assist you in taking the next steps forward to your rejuvenating body goals.

Liposuction:  If you have excess areas of fat that are unresponsive to diet and exercise, shape & sculpt your body with Liposuction in NY. Liposuction removes excess fat from targeted areas in the body, neck, & face and tightens skin. We offer a full range of liposuction techniques, including traditional tumescent and super wet liposuction, SmartLipo™ laser liposuction, VASER® LipoSelection, and power-assisted liposuction. Additionally, patients can use fat removed during Liposuction for further body enhancement through Natural Fat Grafting.

Natural Fat Grafting: For an overall look of perfection, excess fat collected after your Liposuction can be used to smooth facial lines and wrinkles in the face, or to enhance volume in other parts of the body, such as the buttocks or breasts. In addition, Fat Grafting in NY can fill nasal labia folds and volumize the lips, aging hands, & hollowed cheeks. Recovery from your Fat Grafting can range anywhere from a few days to 2 weeks, depending on which procedure you choose.
