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.

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.

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.
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 breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction, thigh lift surgery, and buttocks augmentation, as well as our other body contouring procedures.

We’re already halfway through winter, which means the time to hit the beach is getting closer! However, if you aren’t happy with the shape of your body following all those winter holiday feasts and are considering body sculpting to prepare for summer, then plan ahead! By undergoing your procedure now, you can give yourself enough healing time during the spring months for recovery and by summer, the optimal results will be reflected in a new you!
Bikini Top Curves
If you’re looking for bikini top curves, then consider a breast augmentation! Whether you’re looking to increase breast size, shape or symmetry, we can help you attain an improved and natural look. Our Vectra 3D Imagining system allows you to visualize the results you’ve always wanted and helps identify your exact needs! Whether you want to enhance your figure or recapture your former shape, talk with Dr. Elie to see how breast augmentation procedures can help you.
No more hiding behind wraps and tankinis! It’s finally time to rid yourself of that stubborn layer of skin and belly that seems so impossible to remove. There are a few potential causes of this extra layer of belly fat. After significant weight loss, excess skin may continue to hang loose. In addition, abdominal muscles can weaken over time by factors such as pregnancy and obesity. However, a tummy tuck can correct these problems by removing excess skin and fat while also tightening abdominal muscles across the upper and lower abdomen, resulting in a flat, bikini-worthy belly.
Bringing Back the Backside
You can add volume to your derriere with a buttock augmentation! We combine fat grafting—the use of your own fat from your belly or thigh to add volume to the desired area—with targeted liposuction to emphasize and enhance curves. Whether you want to improve the shape or positioning of your buttocks, a butt lift can solve your issues in time for summer.
Smooth Summer Legs
Scared to show off your summer legs because of cellulite? Consider Cellulaze treatment! Cellulaze uses laser technology to dissolve fibrous connective tissues that create pockets of fat while also tightening skin and increasing thickness. Cellulaze can reduce cellulite by creating smoother skin and encouraging collagen production.
