Tummy Tuck For A Firmer-Looking, Slimmer Waistline!

POSTED ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2017 AT 1:31 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Are you looking to tighten and slim your tummy? The midsection is one of the most common areas of concern for patients. Stubborn fat may build up around the abdomen and flanks, resulting in abdominal bulges. Additionally, sagging or drooping skin may be present, as a result of aging, pregnancy, or substantial weight loss. Dr. Elie Levine offers tummy tuck surgery to help address stubborn stomach flab. A tummy tuck can achieve a firmer-looking, slimmer midsection by repositioning and removing drooping skin. Tummy tuck surgery can also be combined with abdominal liposuction to remove stubborn belly fat and further enhance definition.

What Is A Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is designed to surgically improve the position of stomach muscles and reposition sagging skin. As we age, skin begins to lose elasticity and firmness, resulting in drooping. Additional factors, like pregnancy or substantial fluctuations in weight, can stretch abdominal muscles. Tummy tuck surgery can tighten stretched stomach muscles and position them closer together for a firmer-looking midsection. Additionally, loose abdominal skin can be carefully repositioned and, if necessary, removed to accentuate your underlying musculature.

Complementing Tummy Tuck Results With Stomach Liposuction

Abdominal lipo can further enhance your tummy tuck results. The presence of stubborn belly fat can prove troublesome and difficult to remove, even with steadfast dieting and exercise. Liposuction can gently extract excess fat cells from the abdomen and flanks to improve definition and create a slimmer waistline. Stomach liposuction can be performed at the same time as tummy tuck surgery for substantial enhancements to your midsection. Fat transfer can also be combined with liposuction and done to the face, buttocks, and breasts.

Is A Tummy Tuck Right For Me?

If you would like to remove stubborn belly fat, tighten stretched stomach muscles, or reduce the appearance of sagging skin, then a tummy tuck with abdominal liposuction may be right for you. This combination body contouring procedure may be especially effective for patients who have lost a significant amount of weight, as well as those who have given birth. Dr. Levine will discuss if a tummy tuck is ideal for you during your consultation.

Restore a radiant complexion in time for the upcoming holidays with Fractora™ treatment! Fractora™ uses radio frequency technology to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and red spots, while improving skin structure for a younger-looking facial profile. Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC offers Fractora™ to achieve clearer-looking skin with virtually no downtime or recovery.

The handle is applied to your skin and delivers controlled pulses of radio frequency heat to the skin’s initial layers, as well as the deep dermis. The Fractora™ device resurfaces the outer layers of your skin, removing damaged skin cells from the surface to make room for new, healthy skin cells. Additionally, radio frequency heat stimulates the production of new collagen fibers beneath the skin, enhancing skin structure and reducing wrinkles.

What Can Fractora™ Treat?

Fractora™ can treat a variety of different target areas, including the forehead, nasolabial folds, cheeks, and neck, as well as numerous areas of the body. Fractora™ is designed to target acne inflammation, acne scars, lesions, red spots, wrinkles, and fine lines.

What Kind Of Fractora™ Results Can I Expect?

Fractora™ can deliver natural-looking improvements to your complexion. You can expect smoother, more youthful skin texture following Fractora™ skin resurfacing. Since Fractora™ is minimally invasive, there is little-to-no recovery time required and patients can typically resume their daily activities immediately upon completing Fractora™ treatment.

Is Fractora™ Right For Me?

If you would like to improve your complexion and skin texture without extensive downtime or recovery, then Fractora™ may be right for you. Fractora™ can reduce the signs of aging by targeting wrinkles, fine lines, furrows, acne scarring, and blemishes. Dr. Levine will discuss if Fractora™ is ideal for you during your consultation.

POSTED ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2017 AT 2:53 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

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.

Other Uses Of Cosmetic Fillers: Earlobes, Temples, & Hand Rejuvenation!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 04, 2017 AT 11:25 AM by Dr. Jody Levine

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.

FaceTite™ To Reduce The Signs Of Facial Aging!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2017 AT 9:12 AM by Dr. Elie Levine

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.
