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.

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.

Types Of Liposuction – Know Your Options!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, JULY 26, 2017 AT 9:36 AM by Dr. Elie Levine

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 lipoultrasound liposuctionradio frequency lipo, and non-surgical liposuction. Learn more about our liposuction techniques below.

Tumescent Liposuction

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®

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

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™

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™

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.

Summer Cellulite Solutions For A Smoother-Looking Complexion!

POSTED ON TUESDAY, JUNE 06, 2017 AT 2:52 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Cellulite is often a top cosmetic concern for patients. Cellulite refers to the herniation of fat cells beneath your skin, which can result in unsightly dimpling. Cellulite is more common in women, but men can also be affected. Despite popular misconceptions, cellulite cannot be treated by simply removing unwanted fat; it takes a comprehensive approach and different techniques.

At Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, leading plastic surgeon Dr. Elie Levine can address the underlying causes of cellulite using Cellulaze™ treatment, as well as a combination of subcision, liposuction, and fat transfer techniques. Learn more about these cellulite solutions below!

Cellulaze™

Cellulaze™ is an innovative minimally invasive treatment for cellulite that utilizes laser technology to achieve a smoother-looking complexion. Laser heat energy is delivered to the target area, disrupting herniated fat pockets below the skin. Next, the Cellulaze™ laser releases fibrous tissue bands that cause bulging.

Additionally, Cellulaze™ can stimulate the production of new collagen fibers for enhanced firmness and elasticity. Cellulaze™ can achieve long-lasting cellulite reduction with minimal recovery time.

Subcision, Liposuction, & Fat Transfer

Subcision, liposuction, and fat grafting work together to improve skin texture and reduce cellulite. During this comprehensive cellulite treatment, a small needle is used to release the fibrous bands that contribute to dimpling. Additionally, liposuction can remove small amounts of excess fat around the target area to enhance contours. Fat transfer injections can add volume to the area and smooth asymmetries for long-lasting results.

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 cellulite treatment, liposuction, fat transfer, or Cellulaze™, as well as our other body contouring treatments.
