Make Your Resolution a Reality With Body Contouring

There’s nothing like starting off the new year with a new resolution. If you’ve been watching what you eat and maintaining a fitness routine but still have a few excess pounds, deciding to make 2021 the year you meet your body goals is a great resolution for your health and state of mind.

Sometimes, however, no matter how hard you try, those stubborn pockets of fat just won’t budge enough to give you the sculpted look you want. If you’re sick of trying to cover up your trouble zones and you’re ready to lose them for good, body contouring can help! 

The team at Yakov Levy MD PC, with offices in Midtown East, Manhattan, and Forest Hills, Queens, New York, understand how frustrating trying to achieve your dream body shape can be. Our noninvasive body contouring services help you tighten and tone your body and melt away excess fat.

What is body contouring?

Body contouring and weight loss surgery are two different therapies. While weight loss surgery addresses your overall weight, body contouring targets the layers of hard-to-lose fat around your middle and upper thighs and helps tone and shape your body. 

Even at a healthy weight, your body can accumulate fatty deposits around your muscle and under the surface of your skin. It’s difficult to get these pockets of fat to budge with diet and exercise alone, and it can be challenging to work out specific muscle groups enough to create a change in your silhouette. 

Our body contouring options include two different technologies that help sculpt your figure, smoothing away unwanted fat and firming your muscles to tone and tighten even the most stubborn areas: Accent Prime and EMSCULPT®.

Accent Prime

Accent Prime is an innovative, noninvasive system that sculpts your body by harnessing the latest ultrasound and radiofrequency (RF) technologies.

Its Shear Wave technology targets unwanted fat cells in the target areas and destroys them with sound waves. As your fat cells break down, your body’s natural waste removal system flushes them from your body. 

The Accent Prime system also uses Unipolar™ RF technology, which guarantees focused and safe depth control. This allows for flexibility in performing customized treatments in specific areas, giving you optimal results for your body.

Accent Prime is safe to use in many problem areas, including your abdomen, arms, and even the fat under your chin. What’s more? Accent Prime also improves the appearance of cellulite, giving you smoother, firmer skin. 

Treatments with Accent Prime take about 20 minutes, and there’s no downtime required. You can come in on your lunch break and return to your normal activities right away. Most patients benefit from 4-6 treatment sessions at two-week intervals. 


To build and tone muscles in your abdomen, thighs, or buttocks, EMSCULPT is the body contouring solution for you.

This innovative, noninvasive treatment uses advanced electromagnetic technology that forces your muscles to perform supramaximal contractions. For example, EMSCULPT contracts your abs to perform the equivalent of 20,000 situps in 30 minutes. 

EMSCULPT wears down the fibers in your muscles, forcing them to adapt. This restructures them, giving you stronger muscles with long-lasting, noticeable results. You feel as though you had an intense workout in only 30 minutes — without breaking a sweat! Most patients get the best results after a series of four treatments spaced at 2-3 day intervals. 

Am I a candidate for body contouring?

Remember: Body contouring isn’t a weight loss solution. If you’re overweight or obese, you aren’t a candidate. If that’s the case, talk to the team at Yakov Levy MD PC about getting help achieving a healthy weight first. 

You’re a good candidate for body contouring if you:

To ensure these body contouring options are right for you, we review your medical history and evaluate your overall health. Then we work with you to create a customized treatment plan and schedule to help you reach your goals.
