Dr. Jennifer Levine is one of only a few surgeons who is double-board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and the American Board of Otolaryngology-head and neck surgery – giving her a unique knowledge of the face and its underlying structures. 

Her Upper East Side office was one of the first offices to offer WarmSculpting™ treatments, non-invasive body contouring treatments that use the FDA-cleared SculpSure device to target and destroy treated fat cells.

Non-invasive body contouring treatments are on the rise, with the 25-minute WarmSculpting appointment being quick, and free of the prior messiness of other fat freezing methods. One of the highlights is the ease and convenience, as well as zero down time after the procedure.

Dr. Levine is seeing trends in many patients looking to make changes to their body in non-invasive ways, and recommends combinations of treatments to get the best results. One of the techniques gaining popularity and delivering great outcomes is using biostimulatory fillers in a more dilute form in the body to help improve skin quality and texture.

Her typical clientele are informed on the different procedures, are body conscious men and women that live a healthy lifestyle and are looking for that added “boost” to address stubborn pockets of fat that haven’t responded to diet and exercise.

 We sat down and chatted with Dr. Levine, as she cleared up the myths and misconceptions about WarmSculpting:

1.    Body contouring confusion. While this isn’t necessarily a misconception, it’s definitely a question I get asked a lot about the category in general. It’s important that patients know WarmSculpting is non-invasive, laser-based technology that destroys the treated fat cells for good without surgery or any downtime!

2.    It’s only for the stomach. This isn’t true! The SculpSure device is FDA cleared to treat much more than just the abdomen – in addition to the abdomen, we can treat the flanks (also called love handles), back, and inner and outer thighs. Plus, WarmSculpting Profile treatments are specifically designed to treat the submental area, or double chin.

3.    There’s serious downtime. Totally false! These treatments are completely non-invasive and require no downtime at all, patients can pop in and get treated during their lunch breaks and then happily head right back to the office! If patients do report side effects, they’re mild and don’t interfere with day-to-day activities, like temporary tenderness, swelling or tissue firmness in the area treated.

4.    The treatments are time intensive. Not at all. Each treatment lasts only about 25 minutes per area, and in that time we can destroy up to 24 percent of treated fat cells without surgery or downtime! Note: Optimal results are generally achieved through a series of treatments.
