Introducing The Scarless Breast Lift To Raise & Firm The Breasts!

POSTED ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 24, 2017 AT 12:52 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Introducing the scarless breast lift to raise the breasts without undergoing traditional breast lift surgery! This minimally invasive technique utilizes the revolutionary BodyTite™ system to carefully firm and lift drooping breast skin. Unlike traditional breast lift techniques, BodyTite™ recruits radio frequency (RF) energy to tighten lax skin with precision. Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC is proud to offer this innovative new treatment to patients seeking a minimally invasive solution to sagging breasts. Learn how BodyTite™ can lift the breasts below.

How Does The Scarless Breast Lift Work?

When performing a scarless breast lift, BodyTite™ technology is used to achieve efficient skin tightening results by delivering radio frequency (RF) energy beneath the skin to stimulate collagen and firm the breasts. During your procedure, the BodyTite™ electrode is applied to the treatment area, while the BodyTite™ cannula is carefully inserted beneath the skin through a 1-2 millimeter incision. The electrode and cannula work together to deliver radio frequency energy to the skin. This energy can achieve immediate skin contraction at the surface of your skin, while also encouraging the production of subsurface collagen fibers to improve skin structure.

Who Are Ideal Candidates For A Scarless Breast Lift?

Mothers who are experiencing sagging skin around the breasts after pregnancy or breast feeding may be ideal candidates for a scarless breast lift. Additionally, patients who would like to lift the breasts with minimal downtime and recovery may be candidates for the BodyTite™ breast lift.

What Kind Of Results Can I Expect?

The scarless breast lift can achieve long-lasting enhancements to breast contours. Patients can expect immediate skin firming benefits after undergoing treatment, with results continuing to improve in the subsequent months. Scarless breast lift patients experience minimal recovery and downtime and many patients can resume daily activities immediately following treatment.

Can I Combine My Scarless Breast Lift With Breast Augmentation?

Depending on the specifics of your procedure, the scarless breast lift may be combined with breast augmentation using breast implants or natural fat grafting to achieve substantial results.

How Kybella™ Can Treat Double Chin Without Surgery

POSTED ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2016 AT 2:37 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Kybella™ is the first and only injectable approved by the FDA to treat double chin! If you are bothered by excess fat below the chin (also known as submental fat), then you may be a candidate for this innovative treatment. Kybella™ can reduce the appearance of stubborn fat cells that build up around the chin and neck. These fat cells are often extremely difficult to address through traditional diet and exercise. As a result, double chin is one of the most common cosmetic concerns for patients. Kybella™ treatment can provide a long-lasting solution to submental fat for a shapelier, youthful-looking jawline. Learn how Kybella™ can treat double chin without surgery.

The Kybella™ Solution

The Kybella™ solution is made from deoxycholic acid, which is a substance found naturally in your body that helps process fat cells. During Kybella™ treatment, a series of small injections will be administered around the submental area. The specialized deoxycholic acid solution works by gradually targeting unwanted fat cells. Over time, these fat cells are broken down and naturally eliminated by your body. Each Kybella™ treatment takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and patients usually require 2-4 treatments spread one month apart from each other in order to achieve optimal results.

Kybella™ Results

Kybella™ can restore contours to the chin and neck by selectively eliminating unwanted fat from the submental area. Kybella™ results are long-lasting and patients can begin to see improvements to their chin and neck line in the weeks following treatment. Maintaining a consistent diet and exercise routine is recommended to further maximize your results.

Benefits Of Undergoing Kybella™ Treatment

Treatments last approximately 30 minutes

Long-lasting solution to unwanted submental fat

Virtually no downtime or recovery

Series of injections can deliver symmetrical results

Patients can resume daily activities immediately following Kybella™

Fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated by the body

NeoGraft To Restore An Attractive, Healthy Head Of Hair!

POSTED ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 12, 2016 AT 11:07 AM by Dr. Elie Levine

NeoGraft can restore a fuller, natural-looking head of hair this upcoming new year! Many patients struggle with hair loss due to aging or genetics. Both men and women can be affected by pattern baldness, which leads to areas of thinning hair over time. Hair loss can result in a drop in confidence and a willingness to cover up your hair under a cap or hat. NeoGraft hair restoration is designed to regrow your own hair to achieve natural-looking results. Below are 4 reasons why you should consider NeoGraft to restore a healthy, full head of hair.

1.) Specialized FUE Technique!

During your NeoGraft procedure, the hands-free follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique is used to carefully extract healthy hair follicles from areas of thickness (usually found at the back of the head). These follicles are then preserved before being precisely implanted into areas of thinning hair. The FUE technique allows for a quicker, more efficient hair transplant than previous hair surgery methods.

2.) Minimally Invasive Treatment!

NeoGraft is a minimally invasive hair restoration procedure that does not require incisions and avoids linear scarring. Patients can expect less downtime and recovery than traditional hair transplant techniques, as well as shorter procedure times.

3.) Long-Lasting Results!

NeoGraft hair restoration can achieve long-lasting improvements to the thickness of your hair. With a follicle survival rate over 90%, NeoGraft can provide natural-looking results to numerous areas of the scalp.

4.) Recent Survey Suggests A Hair Transplant Can Enhance Attractiveness!

A recently published study suggests that hair transplants can make patients look more attractive! During this study, participants were shown before and after pictures of men who had underwent a hair restoration procedure, as well as photos of patients who had not opted for hair restoration. The results concluded that the men who underwent hair transplants looked more youthful, successful, and approachable after hair transplant surgery.

Our NY plastic surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, and staff at NYC Hair Restoration welcome any questions you may have about NeoGraft, as well as any of our other hair restoration methods.

Acne Solutions for Healthy-Looking Skin!

POSTED ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2016 AT 10:26 AM by Dr. Jody Levine

Though acne is commonly associated with adolescence and puberty, many adults also suffer from acne well into their 30s and beyond. Multiple factors can contribute to breakouts, including genetics, stress, certain skin care products, and hormone levels. In light of these factors, dedicating the time to properly take care of your skin plays a key factor in keeping a clear complexion. If you’re suffering from stubborn acne inflammation or acne scars, New York dermatologist Dr. Jody Levine of Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC offers various skin treatments to reduce the effects of acne.

Reduce Acne Scarring And Inflammation With Laser Acne Treatments!

Laser acne treatment can reduce troublesome scars and inflammation caused by acne. For some patients, acne can be resistant to traditional oral or topical medications. Laser acne treatment can improve inflammation by reducing the size of oil glands that contribute to blocked pores. Our NYC dermatologist can treat even the most persistent acne with photodynamic therapy and LED treatments.

For some, years of struggling with acne can lead to acne scarring, as popping pimples and frequent picking result in scars that detract from your complexion. Lasers can treat acne scars by focusing on the surface of the skin, as well as underlying layers. Laser skin resurfacing techniques target the initial layers of acne-damaged skin, regenerating fresh skin cells for a healthy and smoother-looking complexion. Additionally, laser heat energy promotes collagen growth that leads to skin tightening benefits.

Clear Your Complexion With A Chemical Peel!

Chemical peels are an effective way to improve the appearance of your skin while reducing acne and acne scarring. Chemical peels are designed to remove dead skin cells from the surface of skin to clear clogged pores that can contribute to breakouts. Chemical peels can also treat fine lines, blemishes, dry patches, and uneven pigmentation. Undergoing a series of chemical peels can help stimulate collagen production in the deep dermis that contributes to firmer, healthier-looking skin.

Prevent Future Breakouts By Developing A Proper Skin Care Routine!

Developing an efficient skin care routine is essential to maintaining the glowing results from laser acne treatment and chemical peels! Choosing the proper skin care products that are ideal for your specific skin type can help prevent future breakouts and contribute to the long-lasting results of your laser acne treatment or chemical peel. We offer an assortment of skin care treatments to keep your complexion looking fresh. Our skin care experts would be happy to discuss which skin care products are ideal for you.

VISIA™ is a specialized skin care analysis system that can provide a detailed look at your skin, both on the surface and below, through advanced imaging. This technology will help formulate an ideal and individualized treatment plan for you.

Minimally Invasive Liposuction To Get Ready For The Holidays!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2016 AT 3:00 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Treat yourself to a slimmer figure this upcoming holiday season with our innovative liposuction solutions! Unlike body sculpting procedures, there are numerous minimally invasive options available to achieve long-lasting results with little downtime and recovery. Patients can undergo laser-based liposuction options, including SmartLipo™ and SculpSure™, as well as ultrasound lipo techniques, such as VASER® LipoSelection, to slim down areas of stubborn body fat. The midsection, back, arms, legs, and thighs are just some of the areas that minimally invasive liposuction can treat. Learn more about your options below and see which lipo procedure may be right for you.


SmartLipo™ utilizes laser liposuction technology to remove unwanted fat pockets and promote firmer-looking skin. During your SmartLipo™ treatment, a tiny laser probe is inserted beneath the skin through a tiny incision. Once placed, the SmartLipo™ system delivers laser energy to underlying fat cells, resulting in their removal from the body. Laser heat energy also encourages new collagen production in the deep dermis, resulting in skin tightening benefits post-procedure. Since SmartLipo™ is minimally invasive, patients can expect less healing time post-procedure than traditional liposuction techniques.

VASER® LipoSelection

VASER® LipoSelection can target stubborn fat using ultrasound technology. The VASER® probe is carefully placed underneath the skin and begins targeting excess fat cells without causing harm to surrounding tissues. Over time, these fat cells are then eliminated from the body. VASER® Lipo also promotes the firming of skin around the target area, as new collagen is gradually produced after treatment. Patients undergoing VASER® LipoSelection can expect minimal downtime following their procedure.


SculpSure™ is a completely non-invasive lipo procedure that can remove excess fat pockets with little-to-no recovery time. During treatment, specialized applicators are placed about the target area(s) and laser energy is delivered to unwanted fat cells, resulting in their detachment from surrounding tissue. These fat cells are then removed from the body over time. SculpSure™ patients can return to their daily routine immediately after the conclusion of their treatment.

NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, and the staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about SmartLipo™, VASER® LipoSelection, and SculpSure™, as well as our other liposuction procedures.
