Richard Swift MD, New York's Premier Plastic Surgeon. Brazilian Butt Lift, Liposuction, Tummy Tuck. Breast Implants, Labiaplasty and Fat Transfer. I had several consultations with other surgeons before I selected Dr. Swift and I am very happy I decided to go with him. He is absolutely amazing. I’m extremely pleased with the outcome of my breast lift with augmentation. My new breasts look very natural and there is very minimal scarring. I do not have a single complaint about the care I received. I never felt rushed during my visits with him. He was always available to answer all of my questions before and after the surgery. I couldn’t be more satisfied with the care I received. He’s not only talented, but he’s also really nice and easy to talk to. Stephanie, the office assistant was also extremely helpful in answering some of my questions. It’s always a joy to talk to Dr. Swift and Stephanie during my follow up visits. I highly recommend Dr. Swift for anyone considering plastic surgery. He is so amazing with my injectables. I love how it erases years off of my face. Dr. Swift is amazing. I have been a client since 2007. He listens to my ideas and gives me honest feedback on what he can do to make me look young. I love his office staff person who is very friendly and always makes me feel comfortable. Dr Swift is amazing! He is the ultimate professional and so good at what he does – every time I leave his offices, I get so many compliments but never a ‘what did you have done’ question because everything is so subtle and natural. Can’t say enough great things about their office! Dr. Swift is wonderful. Has the best bedside manner a doc can have. He is not pushy and has a keen aesthetic eye. I adore him! Thanks doc for making me beautifuller! I have been to several doctors but when it comes to injectables Dr. Swift is the best. He is a true artist and I would never go to anyone else. His attention to detail and touch is perfection! I have been to several doctors but when it comes to injectables, Dr. Swift is the best. He is a true artist and I would never go to anyone else.

Thanks doc for making me beautifuller! Dr. Swift is just amazing!! His office is beautiful, welcoming and has a very relaxing feel. His office manager Stefanie is enthusiastic, helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and kind. Dr. Swift educated me on my different options to produce the desired outcome I was looking for. He took his time to explain to me what he would be doing for my fine lines and wrinkles and what I can expect. He had a wonderful demeanor, he was thorough and I felt comfortable. Most importantly, I look fabulous!! I highly recommend Dr. Swift for your botox, your fillers and any/all of your anti-aging needs!! I recently called to make an appointment with Dr. Swift to discuss Botox. I spoke with his lovely office manager Stefanie, who happens to be the most warm welcoming person I ever met. I should start by saying this was the first time getting Botox so I must add how nervous I was. Upon arriving at my appointment Stefanie greeted me and we had the nicest conversation which helped me feel super comfortable. After a few short minutes Dr. Swift greeted me with such a nice hello. We discussed what brought me in and what I was looking for. Dr. Swift gave some recommendations and the rest is history. He is amazing at what he does and I am so happy with the results. He is a genius and makes you feel so great about wanting to enhance your beauty. So thank you Stefanie and Dr.Swift I had a wonderful experience! Looking forward to seeing you both in 3 months! I went to Dr Swift to try Juviderm as I am looking for a new dr in the city. He was patient, took time to answer questions, go over options and to educate me on my options. This is important to me as I am in medical sales and I like to learn. He did the best job of anyone who has given me fillers. I will absolutely be back as he was the best I have had. Great staff- clean office- nice bedside manner. 2 months ago, I had a breast lift done. For years, I kept dreaming of getting the procedure but kept putting it off. My daughter had a breast augmentation with Dr. Swift 1 year ago. I was surprised and shock as to how natural they look, with no scars after the healing process! Wow, I remembered thinking that this was amazing. I had to write this review and share the wonderful, amazing and great experience I had with Dr. Swift and his team. By far, this really was the best decision I made. Dr. Swift is a person that listens, sympathizes and very caring of how you feel and what you want done. I can’t thank him enough, I feel and look great! Stephanie, is wonderful and an important part of the process, she was the first person I met, a pleasure to deal with, I felt like I’m part of the family. The follow up visits have been from every 2 weeks, to 6 weeks each time Dr. Swift notice the great improvements and the great job he’s done. Thank you, Dr. Swift, I’m a lifetime supporter and 100% satisfied with your hard work and diligent desire for perfection! You’ll not regret your experience. I am a woman of some years – it was time to do my lower lids – they call it a lower blepharoplasty. The experience from the first consult has been top draw- Stephanie was a gem and he answered all of my questions- my recover time was amazing – I had interviewed 6 plastic surgeons and chose him because his energy was gentle – I brought along a friend to my second consult because I had more questions and she booked him for her upper lids- All around a great experience and i look amazing – I highly suggest Dr. Swift for any procedure that you might need- He is the top. As a thirty eight year old woman, I have been treated by a handful of plastic surgeons and have had consultations with numerous doctors over the years. I can enthusiastically recommend Dr. Richard Swift as the very best I have encountered. I discovered him using Google (Yelp), and it didn’t take me long to understand what all the praise was for. For me, there are three crucial factors when evaluating a doctor: talent, personality and professionalism. Dr. Richard Swift is outstanding in all of these domains. From the moment I stepped into his office and was greeted by his welcoming and cheerful assistant, I knew I found my fit. The office space is quiet, peaceful and beautifully decorated. Dr. Swift and his staff are incredibly nice and take the time to listen to your concerns. He will never push a specific method or procedure if it’s not best for you. Lastly, but arguably most importantly of all, his work is technically excellent. I was both nervous and embarrassed to undergo my cosmetic procedure as it was a defect I’ve disliked since I was a teenager. With the help and encouragement of Dr. Swift, I finally underwent surgery in October 2014. The surgery room is conveniently located in his office. The assisting nurse was kind and caring. The results of my procedure are flawless. I don’t have any scars and the healing process was rapid. I also began Botox treatments shortly after my October procedure. I feared that I would look different, but I look as natural, youthful and beautiful as ever. I strongly recommend Dr. Swift. Thank you! I just had my last follow up appointment with Dr. Swift for my Breast Augmentation and I couldn’t be happier with the results! I greatly appreciate Dr. Swift’s professionalism and dedication to helping me achieve the best results. I met with him for about 4 months prior to having the surgery to address ALL my questions and concerns to ensure that when it came time for my operation I felt comfortable. His staff from the receptionist, to the operating room nurse, and anesthesiologist were very caring and helpful. One thing that stood out to me was the day after my procedure, I received a phone call from the anesthesiologist to check on how I was feeling. I highly recommend Dr. Swift to all my friends because of his superior service and compassionate team! I went to Dr. Swift for Sculptra treatments. He serves as a trainer for the company to train other physicians so I knew he had great experience. I had several vials of sculptra injected to my whole face. The procedure was relatively painless and there was very little downtime. The result was amazing. I know that placement of this product is very operator dependent and I am glad that I found Dr. Swift who I could trust, that came through, and gave me the excellent result I was seeking. I will be going back for further treatments in the future. I have been to Dr. Swift twice, following a recommendation from three friends who received surgery from him. Once for liposuction on my abdomen and again for an upper and lower blepharoplasty (aka making my eyelid larger and taking away my under-eye “puffies”). The results look amazing and natural; I could not be any happier with the results! Recovery time and pain was minimal, significantly better than I thought it would be. I was extremely nervous before my first procedure, and Dr. Swift and his team were patient and understanding. If you are interested in having plastic surgery, I strongly recommend Dr. Swift. I went to Dr. Swift to have my deviated septum and my nose reshaped. Being 29 years old not being able to breath very well and very self-conscious of my nose I needed someone who I could trust. A good friend of mine had recommended Dr. Swift, being very skeptical and nervous I made an appointment to see him. After my speaking to him for 20 minutes and him explaining the process he made feel so comfortable and and at ease. Never having had any surgery I was afraid of the end result. Now I can breathe for the first time in my life, my nose is perfect all thanks to Dr. Swift! Even after the surgery his dedication, patience, and his way making you feel at ease has really helped me. I am very happy with the results and very thankful to Dr. Swift for the amazing job, his work is amazing he really cares the results and your satisfaction. I will be going back to him again for other procedures. I would recommend to anyone who is thinking of getting something done.

Leg & Lower Body Liposuction

For the majority of men and women, lower body fat can be extremely difficult to contend with – regardless of how much they diet and/or exercise. In addition, many in the US have a genetic predisposition to holding extra weight in their legs, thighs, and even their ankles. Especially for women, this can cause a lot of body image issues, and will often discourage them from wearing certain dresses, skirts, and short outfits. In order to content with these issues, many are turning to liposuction of the legs and lower body as a whole.

What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is one of the most common aesthetic enhancement procedures and can be performed on a variety of areas along the body – including the buttocks, upper & lower arms, back, chest, abdomen, and the lower body, legs, thighs, ankles & more.

Liposuction in general is the removal of unwanted fat from the body, using a small tubular vacuum hand-piece, known as a cannula. This tubular hand-piece is equipped with a laser tip designed to liquify the fat cells, in order for them to be easily vacuumed away. Removing this unwanted fat allows your surgeon to sculpt the desired treatment area, creating slimmer, more aesthetically-pleasing contours.

How Does Liposuction Differ for the Lower Body?
The lower body (legs, thighs, etc.) is one of the most widely requested areas for liposuction, especially amongst women – as their leg and lower body fat is quite different from that of the rest of the body. Within the female body, genetics plays a huge role in how fat is distributed. The majority of women tend to hold a lot of excess weight in the hips, thighs, and ankles. Some amount of fat is important for bodily processes and things like childbirth, therefore this fat is especially resistant to diet & exercise.

In addition, the fat along the legs, thighs & ankles is known to be more “superficial surface fat”. This means that there are few, if any, deep pockets of fat on the legs, and most of it is housed along the leg’s surface. This is particularly dangerous, and the main reason why lower body liposuction takes an added measure of care. Near this surface fat, there are a number of vascular complexes (groups of veins) and therefore surgeons must take added precaution to avoid causing any damage to them. Also, because of the effects of gravity and blood pressure changes, any trauma from the procedure can causing long-lasting vascular injury and damage to important veins.

One of the most sensitive areas on the legs is the area behind the knees. Both men and women tend to gain fat in the areas around this, so it is a common target for liposuction – however, this area is home to a number of important nerves and blood vessels that can be easily injured by the cannula. Any surgeon attempting liposuction in any of the surrounding areas must be experienced and precise enough to avoid getting too close – as this can lead to permanent damage, loss of feeling, mobility issues, vascular damage, and more.

Benefits of Leg Liposuction
When getting liposuction performed on the lower body, both men and women experience a wide variety of benefits to their appearance – in addition to the health benefits of fat/weight loss. Some of these benefits include:

  • Thinner, slimmer lower body contours.
  • Improved Confidence & Self-Esteem.
  • Improved Body Image.
  • Improved mobility.

Important Areas for Lower Body Liposuction
The following areas of the lower body are most prone to fat gain and require liposuction the most.

  • Buttocks – Mainly performed to contour the outer areas of the buttocks (the lower back & the horizontal crease below the buttocks) and sculpt or shape.
  • Outer Thighs – Prone to developing local fat deposits and genetic weight gain, the outer thighs are vital to toning and contouring the body.
  • Inner Thighs – Similar to the outer thighs, the inner thighs contribute to a majority of the leg bulk. Inner thighs also have a tendency to rub together and cause irritations in the skin.
  • Front of Thighs – This area requires the most fat of the legs, and therefore liposuction must be done very lightly here – as excessive fat removal to the front thigh, creates unnatural contours and surface wrinkles/folds.
  • Knees – Mainly the inner and top portions of the knee accrue the most fat. These areas also have the greatest effect on the overall look of the legs and lower body.
  • Calves – The calves are mainly composed of muscle. But some individuals, especially men, like to tone and slim down their calves as the aesthetics of the lower body are very dependent upon the ratio of the calves, to the thighs, and to the hips.
  • Ankles – Genetics plays a huge role in fat along the ankles, and the ankles play a huge role in the overall aesthetic of the lower body, especially for women. The common term “cankles” comes from women having fatty deposits on their ankles, that cause them to blend in with the calves. Removing fat and creating differentiation in these areas is very important to the womanly aesthetic.

Liposuction of the legs and lower body can greatly improve your overall look and appearance, but it is not without its dangers and it is important to take precautions and follow your surgeon’s recommendations.
