A panoply of medical practices converge at Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, where husband-and-wife team Dr. Elie Levine and Dr. Jody Levine practice an impressive repertoire of aesthetic procedures. Non-invasive, medical-grade chemical peels and laser therapies seemingly wipe away signs of aging, and more involved treatments can re-sculpt silhouettes with surgical facelifts, injectable fillers, and ear reshaping. Since Dr. Jody is a board-certified dermatologist and a pediatrician, she can also treat kids who suffer from eczema, vascular birthmarks, and crow's feet.
Dr. Kevin Tehrani's vast knowledge of plastic surgery keeps him in demand––he's a published author, an international speaker, an assistant clinical professor at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, and a go-to source for publications such as New Beauty magazine. But all this activity doesn't keep him from his patients. He typically spends an hour with them during their initial consultations, answering their questions, reviewing images of them on a computer, and projecting what they'd look like if they were made of pixels. Sometimes these consultations lead to cosmetic surgery, and sometimes Dr. Tehrani and his patients instead turn to such non-invasive aesthetic equipment as the Zeltiq CoolSculpting system. Ever the innovator, Dr. Tehrani launched an iPhone app called iLipo, which helps patients to alter their image on the spot to see how a given treatment will transform their body.
Dr. Eric S. Schweiger, a board-certified dermatologist whose expertise has dotted the pages of Cosmo and Glamour, leads a talented team of doctors and technicians in treating a variety of skin woes. From among the menu of medical and cosmetic services, lasers run rampant; zapping away unwanted hair, tattoos, and fat cells, or putting on entertaining light shows in the slate- and blue-hued waiting room. Dr. Schweiger, who also serves as an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center, remains active in clinical research, recently publishing the first case report for using Restylane to treat a cleft lip.
Patients at Contour Chiropractic LLC, located inside Liquid Spa & Fitness, won’t find any needles or bottles of medication there. That’s because Contour’s doctors rely on the patient’s body to heal itself. They trigger self-healing features inside the body by aligning the nervous system—especially the spine—by stretching the muscles, and by employing cold-laser therapy and electrical muscle stimulation.
The team’s noninvasive techniques have even spilled into the cosmetic field. Lipo-laser treatments replace invasive liposuction surgeries, removing unwanted inches without breaking the skin. And unlike liposuction, lipo-laser treatments reduce inches without requiring any downtime.
Like most college graduates, Dr. Jolly stood at a fork in the road at the beginning of his career. On one side, his path pointed toward a future in the arts—he was an accomplished sculptor who had just been accepted into the School of Visual Arts in New York City—and the other side pointed toward a science career that would tap into his undergraduate degree in biology. But as fate had it, Dr. Jolly found a way to incorporate his love of both science and art—by attending the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, where he went on to graduate as a board-certified dentist.
Now, Dr. Jolly and his dedicated team of dental hygienists and assistants turn their passion into action, helping keep their clients' mouths in tiptop shape. From routine checkups to dermal-filler injections, Dr. Jolly keeps his office up-to-date on the latest techniques and equipment, and since he never double-books appointments, he has time to thoroughly explain and guide patients through their procedures. He's dedicated to building strong relationships with clients and making them feel like family, which is why he gives each person a sack of hand-me-down clothes after his or her visit.
