Butt Lift

This nonsurgical procedure will give your backside a fuller, more lifted look without the downtime and risks associated with surgical procedures. A nonsurgical butt lift will use dermal fillers such as Sculptra rather than a fat graft. It will not require liposuction because the injectable is a dermal collagen stimulator that will naturally and gradually produce volume after the treatment. 


The only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to clear the underlying causes of cellulite, Cellfina™ works by targeting the fibrous bands under the dimpled areas of skin that cause cellulite. Releasing these bands will reduce the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs, with results that last for up to a year. Learn more about Cellfina™.


This procedure uses cryolipolysis to freeze and destroy stubborn fat. The damaged fat cells are slowly digested over several months by the body and will be removed through the liver.

With 4 devices, we are often able to perform dual or more applications at the same time to cut your CoolSculpting treatment time in half or more. In addition, the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York was the first practice in New York City and one of the first centers in the country to offer the new applicator, Cool Advantage™ by CoolSculpting®.  It performs the same level of efficacy, but with half the time. We are also one of the first centers to offer the brand-new FDA cleared applicator Cool Mini™ for the treatment of submental fat (double chin). Learn more about CoolSculpting.


Experience the latest in body contouring with CoolTone™ -a noninvasive body contouring device that is indicated for the improvement of abdominal tone, strengthening of the abdominal muscles, and development for a firmer abdomen. It can also strengthen, tone, and firm the buttocks and thighs. It uses high-frequency electromagnetic technology to stimulate muscle contractions that cannot be achieved by normal exercise.

Infini Genius microneedling rf

The Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York is one of the first centers in the country to offer the INFINI Genius. The treatment works by using a combination of micro-needles and radiofrequency to deliver precise heat to a targeted area, creating thousands of targeted coagulation zones under the skin. It stimulates the body’s natural healing process and in effect, the damaged zones are replaced with new elastin and collagen, resulting in tighter, smoother skin. The treatment is a valuable solution for sagging skin without wrinkles.

SculpSure® is an innovative, noninvasive treatment that is used to target and eliminate stubborn fat. It uses a flat, non-suction applicator that applies light-based technology to a targeted problem area. It heats and disrupts fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue. The body will naturally seek to eliminate the destroyed fat cells over time, smoothing and contouring the body with a new, leaner silhouette.

Thermage® CPT

Utilizing radiofrequency energy, Thermage® CPT effectively smooths, tightens, and contours skin for an overall younger appearance. It treats most body parts including the face, eyes, lips, abdomen, arms, hands, thighs, and buttocks. Thermage® can also temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite. It works by heating the deeper dermal layers, resulting in collagen production. New collagen will make the skin look firmer and tighter, improving the overall texture of the skin.

Using radiofrequency energy, this treatment directly targets the subdermal or inner layers of the skin. It safely heats the treatment area to an optimal temperature for skin tightening, making it an effective and minimally invasive procedure that removes excess fat and tightens loose skin.

Ultherapy® uses state-of-the-art micro-focused ultrasound technology to lift and tighten the skin naturally without surgery. It gently heats the deep layers of the skin without damaging the skin’s surface. After a treatment, the body’s natural repair process stimulates the production of new collagen, resulting in a natural lifting effect. Common areas of focus for the treatment include the brow, neck, and jawline. Aside from treating sagging skin, it also visibly diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves the placement of silicone or saline implants to increase breast size, enhance breast shape, or improve natural breast size symmetry.


Breast Reduction

A breast reduction procedure surgically removes excess skin, breast fat, and glandular tissue to help create a more aesthetically pleasing breast shape or size that is more in proportion with the body. This also alleviates the discomfort associated with excessively large breasts, as well to eliminate sagging. 



An advanced form of liposuction, liposculpture is designed to perform a more precise and excessive body contouring through the suction and reshaping of fat deposits. Performed under local anesthesia, liposculpture uses micro-cannulas to extract fat through vacuum pressure. At the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York, liposculpture can be performed by Wilfred Brown, M.D., FACS or Dr. Lloyd Hoffman, M.D., FACS – double-board certified plastic surgeons who specialize in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.

 Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover is a combination of surgical and nonsurgical treatments designed to restore a woman’s body to a pre-pregnancy state. The most common procedures for a mommy makeover include a tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast enhancement. In most cases, these procedures can be performed in a single surgical session, so you can achieve full results with a single recovery period. Dr. Wilfred Brown and Dr. Lloyd Hoffman will customize your mommy makeover so you receive the precise amount of correction necessary to achieve your aesthetic goals. 

Tummy Tuck

Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat and skin, helping to restore weakened or separated muscles. This corrects a protruding belly and leaves the midsection flatter, smoother, firmer, and better toned.

Questions and Answers

Q: What Are The Benefits Of Contouring?

A: Body contouring procedures are excellent ways to eliminate persistent pockets of fat or cellulite caused by genetics, lifestyle, pregnancy, and breastfeeding, or significant weight fluctuations. It can also address aging and skin laxity concerns, since, over time, you lose collagen which causes the skin to lose tension and firmness, and to bunch and sag.

Because body contouring procedures are noninvasive, the procedures forgo the physical stress put on the body, whether through incisions, bleeding, or general anesthesia. Body contouring also offers great results that are natural-looking with no significant recovery time after the procedure. There is no limitation on your normal activities after the procedure is performed.

Q: How Do Body Contouring Procedures Work?

A: During a noninvasive body contouring procedure, a dermatologist will typically use a handheld device for targeting fat cells. The FDA has approved several handheld devices for body contouring. They work by sending cold, heat, radiofrequency energy, or sound waves directly into the fat cells to destroy them without causing damage to the surrounding skin.

Q: Are The Results Permanent?

A: You can expect consistent long-term results with our body contouring procedures. Since our noninvasive fat removal procedures kill the fat cells, they are permanently eliminated. The only way fat will return is when new fat is introduced. It is highly recommended to be consistent with regular exercise and a healthy diet to maintain your ideal results.

Q: When Will I See Results?

A: Results appear gradually. Depending on the procedure performed, you may begin noticing changes as early as 3 weeks, and the full effect between 3-6 months after the last treatment.

Q: What Is The Recovery Time?

A: Most people can return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. You may experience temporary swelling and bruising but will usually not cause any downtime.

Q: Are There Side Effects?

A: Aside from swelling and bruising, other possible side effects include a burning or stinging sensation in the treated area, but these are just temporary.

Q: How Long Does A Procedure Take?

A: On average, a session can last between 30-90 minutes. This will depend on the type of procedure and the number of treatment areas. Body contouring procedures may also require more than one treatment session to achieve optimal results. 

Q: Am I A Good Candidate For A Body Contouring Procedure?

A: You are a good candidate for a body contouring procedure if you have stubborn areas of fat that have become resistant to diet and exercise. You should also be near or at a healthy weight, and not significantly overweight. 

Q: Are The Results Of Non Surgical Treatments Similar To Those Obtained From Liposuction?

A: Liposuction will still deliver more dramatic results compared to the more subtle changes that a noninvasive body contouring procedure provides.
