Body Contouring in Manhattan, NYC
Have you resolved to lose weight again? Despite all your willpower and determination, you may not be seeing the results you’d hoped for. Fat can be stubborn and cling in unwanted places, including the thighs, buttocks, arms, face, and more. Body contouring from board-certified Manhattan plastic surgeon and general surgeon Richard W. Swift, Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S. can help remove this fat while lifting and shaping saggy areas to give you a more youthful, proportionate appearance.
What Is Body Contouring?
Body contouring covers a variety of procedures and may involve the use of liposuction (using small tubes called cannula and lasers to liquefy and remove fat) or may involve removing excess saggy skin to tighten and tone the body cosmetically. Certain body contouring procedures, including Brazilian Butt Lifts and SmartLipo® liposuction are designed to remove or transfer fat to enhance specific areas of the body.

Body Contouring Before and After
We invite you to browse our extensive catalog of body contouring procedures to see the types of results Dr. Swift has obtained for his patients. Keep in mind that each individual is different and that you’ll learn more about the outcome you can expect from your specific surgery or treatment at your consultation with Dr. Swift.
How Is Body Contouring Performed?
The specific process depends on which body contouring procedure is being performed. In some cases, fat is liquefied by laser heat and suctioned out through the use of small tubes called cannula. Excess skin may be removed, particularly in the case of a tummy tuck, thigh lift, body lift, arm lift, or labia reduction. In the case of a fat transfer, the fat that has been removed is purified and separated from the rest of the fluid and other materials so it can be re-injected into the area where more volume is desired.
Preparing for Body Contouring
Different body contouring procedures have different steps associated with them. You will learn more about the specific pre-operative steps you’ll need to take during your initial consultation with Dr. Swift.
Body Contouring Recovery
Each body contouring procedure has its own set of instructions which will help minimize scarring and speed healing. For example, after a Brazilian Butt Lift, you should not sit on your behind for more than a minute or two at most and should cushion it when you do. In the case of procedures such as a thigh or arm lift, you may be asked to wear compression garments to help your skin adjust to the new shape. Full details and post-operative instructions will be given to you at your initial consultation.
Is Body Contouring Right for Me?
If you are concerned about the way you look and are bothered by excess skin hanging from your arms, thighs, or overall body, body contouring may be an option for you. If you’re struggling to lose those last 10-15 pounds of fat, liposuction may be used together with a lift in the associated area. Dr. Swift can properly evaluate you as a candidate for body contouring.
How Much Does Body Contouring Cost?
Costs for your specific body contouring surgery or treatment will vary depending on the extent of surgery or the number of procedures needed to achieve your desired result. Most insurance plans do not cover plastic surgery or specific cosmetic treatments. Dr. Swift accepts payment via cash, check, or credit card, as well as Alphaeon Healthcare Lending as a financing option.
