Would you like to lift and tighten loose arm skin without the need for traditional arm lift surgery? Introducing BodyTite™ to firm and sculpt the arms for natural-looking skin tightening results! BodyTite™ uses radio frequency energy to tighten loose tissues and encourage collagen production for improved skin texture. Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC offers the innovative BodyTite™ arm lift for patients seeking a minimally invasive solution to drooping arm skin.
How Does The BodyTite™ Arm Lift Work?
During the BodyTite™ arm lift, a small electrode is placed on your skin, while a tiny cannula is inserted under the skin. These devices work together to direct radio frequency energy to the lower layers of your skin. Radio frequency energy heats the skin layers, resulting in skin contraction. BodyTite™ also stimulates the production of subsurface collagen fibers, which help reinforce skin structure and elasticity for firmer-looking skin texture. If necessary, BodyTite™ can remove small amounts of unwanted fat from the arms for enhanced contours.
What Kind Of BodyTite™ Arm Lift Results Can I Expect?
The BodyTite™ arm lift can achieve smoother, more youthful-looking arms. BodyTite™ results are long-lasting, as well as natural-looking. Patients can reduce the prominence of sagging or drooping arm skin to accentuate natural musculature.
Who Are Ideal BodyTite™ Arm Lift Candidates?
If you are bothered by loose skin around the arms, then a BodyTite™ arm lift may be right for you. Patients who would like to tighten drooping arm skin without extensive arm lift surgery or extended downtime may be candidates for a BodyTite™ minimally invasive arm lift.

Cosmetic fillers can accomplish a variety of procedure goals. From filling fine lines to smoothing facial wrinkles, many patients choose dermal fillers like Juvederm®, Radiesse®, Restylane®, or Belotero® for quick and efficient treatment. These fillers can target more than your facial profile, however! At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, Dr. Jody Levine utilizes dermal fillers to target sagging earlobes, volumize the temples, and rejuvenate the hands. Learn more about these uncommon uses of fillers below.
Cosmetic Fillers To Create Better Earring Position!
Cosmetic fillers can create better earring position by targeting sagging earlobes. As you age, your earlobes may begin to lose firmness, leading to drooping or wrinkling. Consistently wearing heavier earrings can further exacerbate sagging over time. Juvederm®, Restylane®, and Belotero® can be carefully injected into your earlobes to fill wrinkles, reduce drooping, and improve earring position. By lifting and volumizing the earlobes with fillers, earrings can sit upright. Fillers provide extra stability for heavy earrings and prevent ripping.
Add Volume To Your Temples With Cosmetic Injections!
Juvederm® can be used to replenish lost volume around the temples. Your temples are found above your cheekbones. Though not one of the most common treatment areas, hollow temples can age your appearance. Dr. Levine can place Juvederm® injections around the temples to add natural-looking fullness and accentuate contours.
Fillers To Improve The Texture Of Your Hands!
Fillers can restore volume and definition to your hands. Over time, factors such as aging and sun damage can lead to a loss of fullness. Underlying veins may appear more prominent, resulting in an older-looking appearance. Dr. Levine uses Radiesse® to add volume to your hands, fill in grooves, and can hide the bulging veins.
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 Juvederm®, Radiesse®, Restylane®, or Belotero®, as well as our other dermal fillers.

The face is often one of the first areas to show signs of aging in the form of sagging skin, folds, or fine lines. As a result, many patients would like to firm loose skin and achieve a younger-looking facial profile.
Advances in technology have resulted in state-of-the-art facial rejuvenation solutions that can yield long-lasting results with minimal downtime. FaceTite™ can reduce the signs of facial aging without the need for invasive surgery!
FaceTite™ uses radio frequency energy to tighten skin and encourage collagen production for a firmer-looking appearance. Learn more about FaceTite™ treatment below.
What Can FaceTite™ Treat?
FaceTite™ can target the upper, mid, and lower facial regions. Patients can utilize FaceTite™ radio frequency skin tightening to lift drooping or sagging skin around the brows, midface, chin, and neck.
How Does FaceTite™ Work?
During FaceTite™ treatment, a small electrode is placed on your skin while a specialized cannula is inserted beneath your skin through a tiny incision. The electrode and cannula work together to deliver radio frequency energy to the lower layers of your skin.
Heat from the FaceTite™ device encourages the production of new collagen fibers under the skin, leading to improvements in skin structure and elasticity.
If necessary, small amounts of unwanted fat can be removed to further accentuate facial contours. FaceTite™ transmits bipolar radio frequency energy, resulting in more precision and control during treatment.
What Can I Expect After FaceTite™ Treatment?
FaceTite™ patients can expect slight bruising or swelling to last a few days following FaceTite™ treatment. Since FaceTite™ is minimally invasive, patients experience less downtime than traditional facial surgery. You should be able to resume your daily routine after a few days.
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 FaceTite™, as well as our other facial rejuvenation treatments.

The school season has returned, and with it new faces, class pictures, and first impressions. Children want to look and feel their best for the upcoming school year, and step one is maintaining a clearer complexion. Some of the most common aesthetic concerns for teens and young adults are pimples, blemishes, and unsightly breakouts. Acne can cause redness and inflammation, leave behind acne scarring, and, in many cases, affect self-esteem. Our pediatric dermatologists at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC understand the causes of acne and have years of experience treating breakouts. If your child is struggling with acne inflammation or acne scarring, there are a variety of treatments available to help reduce breakouts and restore a clearer complexion this school year.
Maintain A Proper Skin Care Routine
Maintaining an acne-fighting skin care routine can help prevent breakouts from occurring in the first place! Making sure to consistently cleanse, tone, moisturize, and exfoliate your skin can help guard against buildups of excess sebum (oils) or dead skin cells, which can clog pores and cause breakouts. Additionally, using the right skin care products that best fit your skin type can guard against unwanted pimples. Our dermatologists can help determine which acne products are ideal for your child’s skin.
Laser Acne Treatments
Numerous types of laser and light-based acne treatments are available to target inflammation and acne scars. Laser skin resurfacing can encourage the growth of fresh, healthy skin cells while shedding damaged skin cells. Additionally, laser resurfacing for acne can encourage collagen production to improve skin structure for firmer, healthier-looking skin. Photodynamic therapy uses light-based technology to shrink overactive oil glands and reduce bacteria growth.
Chemical Peels For Acne Scars
Chemical peels can improve skin texture by removing the outer layers of damaged skin and encouraging the growth of new skin cells. Face peels are an effective treatment for acne scarring and are available at different depths depending on the needs of each patient.
Topical & Oral Acne Medications
Topical and oral medications can each clear up acne inflammation through different methods. Topical creams, gels, or ointments are applied to breakouts daily and can reduce the appearance and frequency of acne inflammation. Oral medications are taken by mouth (typically in pill form). These medications can reduce and control acne formation.
Which Form Of Acne Treatment Is Right For My Child?
Our team of pediatric dermatologists can examine your child’s acne or acne scarring and determine which type of acne treatment or combination of treatments can achieve ideal 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 skin care treatments, chemical peels, and acne treatments, as well as our other laser procedures.

There are a variety of minimally invasive liposuction techniques available to sculpt the body! Each of these lipo procedures can treat stubborn fat for natural-looking results. Liposuction can target multiple areas of the body, including the neck, chin, breasts, arms, back, midsection, legs, and thighs. At NYC Lipo, we offer multiple modalities to best fit your liposuction goals, including laser lipo, ultrasound liposuction, radio frequency lipo, and non-surgical liposuction. Learn more about our liposuction techniques below.
Tumescent liposuction utilizes a specialized numbing fluid to prepare the treatment area(s) for liposuction. The tumescent technique can reduce patient discomfort helping patients stay active. Tumescent lipo can treat both smaller and larger areas of stubborn fat.
Super Wet Liposuction
During super wet liposuction, a small amount of numbing solution (approximately half of the fluid used during tumescent liposuction) is injected into the treatment area(s). Super wet lipo can result in faster procedure times for patients. The super wet technique can be used for all areas of the body.
Power Assisted Liposuction
Power assisted liposuction can remove dense clusters of stubborn fat using a vibrating cannula. This cannula uses quick oscillations to break apart fat cells and can be extremely effective when treating larger areas of the body, such as the back or midsection.
SmartLipo® is an innovative laser liposuction technique that can remove smaller fat deposits with precision. SmartLipo® sends laser heat energy to the treatment area, eliminating excess fat cells and tightening loose skin for a firmer-looking result.
VASER® LipoSelection utilizes ultrasound technology to remove stubborn fat. During treatment, VASER® energy is delivered to the target area(s), separating unwanted fat cells from surrounding tissue and eliminating them. VASER® LipoSelection can also encourage the contraction of collagen fibers below the skin, leading to skin tightening benefits.
BodyTite™ combines radio frequency technology and liposuction to tighten lax skin and remove small amounts of stubborn fat. During your BodyTite™ procedure, radio frequency energy liquefies fat cells, tightens fibrous tissues, and encourages collagen production to achieve a slimmer, firmer result.
SculpSure™ is a non-invasive lipo technique that can remove fat pockets without undergoing surgery. SculpSure™ sends hyperthermic laser energy to the body using specialized applicators that are placed over the treatment site. Laser energy disrupts fat cells, resulting in their gradual removal from the body. SculpSure™ requires no downtime or recovery and patients can resume their daily activities immediately.
NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, and the staff at NYC Lipo welcome any questions you may have about tumescent liposuction, super wet lipo, power assisted liposuction, SmartLipo®, VASER® LipoSelection, BodyTite™, or SculpSure™, as well as our other body contouring treatments.
