Cellulite is often one of the top summer skin care concerns for patients. This condition is caused by structural issues in the skin’s lower layers and can result in unsightly dimpling around the lower body. Cellulite forms as underlying tissues contract and fat pockets become herniated, leading to uneven texture. Cellulite is more prevalent in women; however, men can also be affected. Factors like aging and weight gain can further accentuate the effects of cellulite. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we utilize a comprehensive approach when treating cellulite. Dr. Elie Levine can combine innovative laser cellulite treatments, lipo techniques, and fat grafting to improve skin structure and achieve a smoother, natural-looking appearance.
Cellulaze™ is a minimally invasive laser cellulite procedure that addresses stiff, fibrous tissue beneath the skin, as well as subsurface fat. The Cellulaze™ laser releases connective tissues that cause the herniation of fat pockets. Additionally, Cellulaze™ also promotes skin tightening benefits, as laser heat energy encourages collagen production to enhance skin elasticity around the legs, thighs, buttocks, and abdomen.
Laser liposuction can complement your Cellulaze™ procedure by sculpting the surrounding treatment area(s). Small deposits of fat are carefully removed from the body to achieve firmer curves. Dr. Levine can selectively contour the lower body using minimally invasive lipo techniques.
Dr. Levine may also combine fat grafting with Cellulaze™ and laser liposuction to improve skin texture. Natural fat transfer uses your body’s own fat cells to enhance volume around the treatment area(s). Dr. Levine can use liposuction to take excess fat from a donor area and then reinject these natural fat cells into the legs, thighs, buttocks, or midsection to add smoothness. Fat grafting can volumize the target area after cellulite treatment and reduce irregularities.

Are you looking to achieve a firmer, more-masculine physique this summer? Despite your best efforts, stubborn fat may be getting in the way of hard-earned results. Certain problem areas are extremely difficult to slim, no matter how much time you spend at the gym. Excess fat under the chin, as well as fat pockets around the midsection or back, can take away from youthful definition. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we understand that certain problem areas may be preventing you from achieving an athletic-looking body. We offer a variety of liposuction treatments to trim fat and enhance body contours.
Improve Jawline Definition
A defined jawline is among the most-coveted physical attributes, as a strong chin can enhance the entire facial profile. Submental liposuction targets excess fat underneath the chin to accentuate your jawline. These fat pockets often lead to the appearance of a double chin, which can result in a rounder-looking facial profile. Small cannulas are inserted under the skin to gently suction-out fat cells from the neck area. Additionally, technology-based liposuction techniques, including SmartLipo® and VASER® LipoSelection, can promote skin tightening by heating collagen fibers beneath the surface. These lipo procedures can achieve a more-defined chin line for patients. Additionally, submental liposuction can be combined with facial rejuvenation procedures, including a facelift or necklift, for a younger-looking appearance.
Eliminate Male Breasts For A Masculine-Looking Chest
For men suffering from gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts, lipo procedures can be used to help sculpt a firmer chest. Gynecomastia may result from obesity or genetics and is difficult to reduce through diet and exercise alone. During male breast reduction, excess fat can be removed with liposuction to improve chest definition. Traditional liposuction options, including tumescent lipo, super wet liposuction, and power assisted lipo, as well as technology-driven liposuction, can be used during this procedure. Gynecomastia surgery can also be combined to remove or re-drape excess chest tissue, reducing the size of male breasts. Together, these body sculpting techniques can promote an athletic-looking chest.
Enhance Back Contours
Back liposuction can remove stubborn fat from the upper, mid, and lower parts of your back to enhance contours. Liposuction can also eliminate mid-back bulges and lower back pockets. Depending on your individual treatment, either traditional liposuction or technology-based lipo may be utilized. Your plastic surgeon may also recommend back lift surgery to tighten lax back skin and promote sleek shoulders and back muscles.
Firm The Midsection And Flanks
The abdomen and flanks are among the most-troublesome areas for patients, as buildups of localized fat deposits often result in love handles at the waist. Abdominal liposuction is designed to remove stubborn belly fat and bulging. Eliminating excess fat from the abdominals and oblique muscles can promote a flatter-looking stomach. Additionally, a tummy tuck can surgically tighten abdominal muscles that have become weakened or stretched due to weight gain or substantial weight loss.

Dermal fillers are an effective option for volumizing various parts of the face to improve wrinkles or fine lines. However, did you know these non-invasive treatments can be used on other areas, as well? Cosmetic injectables are particularly useful for improving sagging earlobes, hollow temples, and gaunt hands! At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we offer different types of dermal fillers to properly address these conditions.
Improve Sagging Earlobes!
Over time, the effects of gravity may take their toll on the natural shape and contour of your earlobes. Aging, as well as the applied weight of earrings, can cause earlobes to sag downward, resulting in the appearance of wrinkles. Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm®, Belotero®, or Restylane®, are carefully injected into the earlobe to reduce fine lines and improve sagging. Cosmetic injectables can achieve plump earlobes in as little as 20 minutes.
Volumize Hollow Temples!
Your temples may become hollow as you get older, resulting in a loss of youthful-looking volume. The temples are located above the cheekbones. Loss of definition in these areas can take away from the rest of your facial profile and hairline. Strategically-placed cosmetic injectables can restore lost volume around the temples and achieve a fuller-looking facial profile.
Rejuvenate Your Hands!
The hands are the second most-commonly seen part of your body after your face. As a result, they are an important part of your day-to-day routine and interactions. Additionally, they are more prone to the effects of sun damage than less-visible parts of the body. The sun’s rays, as well as the natural aging process, can strip away younger-looking definition from the hands, causing underlying veins to become more prominent. Cosmetic injections use hyaluronic acid—a natural substance found in the body—to restore volume to the hands by filling in wrinkles. Thanks to cosmetic injectables, patients can minimize vein patterns under the surface of the skin without any downtime.

With the warmer weather on its way, now is the time to prepare for the summer months with a few non-invasive treatments! For those struggling with underarm sweat and deodorant stains, miraDry® is FDA-approved to eliminate excess sweat glands in under 30 minutes. Patients no longer need to apply antiperspirant. If slimming down for summer is your goal, then SculpSure™ may be right for you. This non-surgical laser fat reduction technique can remove troublesome fat pockets around the body to get ready for beach season. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, Dr. Jody Levine offers both miraDry® and SculpSure™ for patients looking to prepare for summer!
Say Goodbye To Underarm Sweat!
MiraDry® is a non-invasive procedure that targets excess sweat glands around the armpits. During your procedure, the miraDry® hand-piece gently suctions sweat glands closer to the surface. Next, specialized miraWave™ energy is delivered to the target area to eliminate sweat glands. Cooling technology soothes the surface of your skin during treatment to reduce any discomfort. MiraDry® targets both eccrine glands (which cause sweat) and apocrine glands (which cause odor), meaning patients no longer need to wear deodorant to combat these effects! Results are long-lasting and many patients see an immediate reduction in underarm sweat and odor.
Eliminate Stubborn Fat!
SculpSure™ can remove fat deposits around the body without the need for incisions or downtime. This laser fat removal procedure uses special applicators that deliver heat energy, causing a disruption to excess fat cells. First, these applicators are placed above the treatment area(s). After being positioned, laser heat energy is delivered to stubborn fat cells, causing them to detach from your surrounding tissue. Over time, these fat cells are naturally removed by your body! Any discomfort during your SculpSure™ procedure is minimized, thanks to a cooling mechanism that soothes the surface of your skin. Patients usually see long-lasting improvements to their figure after undergoing SculpSure™ treatment. Maintaining a healthy diet and consistent exercise is recommended to sustain your body contouring results.
NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, and the staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about miraDry® and SculpSure™, as well as our other non-surgical procedures.

Bikini season is almost here! Are you ready to hit the beach? Or are there certain aspects of your physique that you’d like to improve upon before trying on your bikini? Dr. Elie Levine of Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC offers a variety of different body contouring procedures that can tighten loose skin, remove excess fat, and improve definition. Patients can target the breasts, midsection, thighs, and buttocks for a firmer-looking physique with these treatments!
Enhance The Breasts
Patients now have more breast enhancement options available to them than ever before. Breast augmentation can increase the size of your breasts through breast implants, while a breast lift can provide a youthful-looking lift to your bust. Additionally, fat transfer can be combined with these breast enhancement procedures to correct asymmetries in size or shape using your body’s natural fat.
Tummy Tuck For A Tighter-Looking Abdomen
Even with consistent diet and exercise, bulging around the midsection may persist, due to lax skin or stretched stomach muscles. Tummy tuck surgery can carefully remove excess skin around the abdomen, while also tightening stomach muscles that have become weakened due to weight gain or pregnancy.
Remove Fat From The Stomach & Flanks
Liposuction can target troublesome love handles around the stomach and flanks. These small pockets of fat are often difficult for patients to remove through traditional weight loss methods. Our technology-based liposuction techniques, including SmartLipo™, VASER® LipoSelection, and SculpSure™, can slim love handles, stomach bulges, and more, while also promoting skin tightening for firmer-looking results.
Reshape The Thighs
Thigh lift surgery can address sagging thighs to achieve a shapelier lower body. During a thigh lift, loose skin around the inner and outer thighs is carefully excised and re-draped for balanced results. Thigh lift surgery can also reduce the appearance of skin rashes caused by chafing at the inner thighs.
Buttocks Augmentation For Firmer Glutes
There are two approaches to creating a well-rounded buttocks: accentuating gluteal curves and lifting the buttocks to a more youthful position. Buttocks augmentation combines fat grafting and surgical techniques to achieve firmer-looking glutes. Buttocks fat transfer utilizes your body’s own fat cells to add natural-looking volume, while a gluteal lift reshapes and removes excess tissue for a more defined buttocks.
