About NYC Tongue Tie

Ankyloglossia, or tongue tie, is when the lingual frenulum, a short, tight band of tissue, ties the bottom of the tongue to the mouth floor. This often can prohibit free movement and unbridled use of the tongue. Problems often surface with breastfeeding, speech development, dental development and even sleeping restfully. NYC Tongue Tie offers a quick, safe and pain-free method of tongue tie and lip tie release for infants, children and adults at our office in Midtown Manhattan.

Traditional tongue tie and lip tie surgery required a manual surgical procedure and stitches or laser surgery to sever the lingual frenulum. Dr. Gregory Levitin is a well-known, board certified otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeon with an impressive array of credentials and experience in plastic and reconstructive surgery. He has pioneered a quick, pain-free tongue tie/lip tie release procedure without sutures or lasers that only takes about 10 minutes and is performed right in his office.

Experienced In-Office Tongue Tie and Lip Tie Release Treatment

During his multifaceted career, Dr. Levitin has performed over 2,500 tongue tie and lip tie procedures on infants and children exclusively in-office, making him one of the most experienced and trusted doctors in New York City. It is from this vast experience that he developed his revolutionary release procedure for infants, children and adults.

Dr. Levitin’s unique, non-surgical approach to treating tongue tie and lip tie in the office uses only a small amount of local anesthesia, is pain-free, uses no laser or surgical sutures and often takes less than 10 minutes from start to finish. Patients rarely need a follow-up visit and can begin eating and drinking immediately.

Renowned NYC Otolaryngologist

Dr. Levitin is also widely renowned for his top-tier otolaryngology care, specializing in pediatric and adult reconstructive surgery and non-surgical snoring and sinus relief.
