As one of NYC’s premiere facial plastic surgeons, Dr. Richard Swift has been helping patients across the city transform their facial appearance using a wide range of innovative surgical methods. While liposuction is traditionally considered a body procedure, over the years, as techniques have advanced, and safety protocols have evolved, more and more patients are looking towards liposuction in more delicate areas, including the neck!
Unwanted Neck Fat
For many patients, men and women, the neck area is known to accumulate unwanted fatty tissue and can become some of the most stubborn fat to remove – as it is highly resistant to diet and exercise. The fact is that having a slim, elegant neck is a vital part of having an aesthetically pleasing facial profile and quality, youthful contours. Despite the fact that it can make a patient appear older than they really are, the presence of excess neck fat can develop at any age, and can be the product of everything from sudden weight gain, to genetics. Neck liposuction is a great option for patients suffering from excess neck and submental chin fat that might produce an unsightly double chin.
What is Neck Liposuction?
Neck Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure designed to remove excess fat deposits from the neck and chin area, resulting in a more sculpted and refined neck contour. Considering that neck liposuction is being performed on a more delicate area, the neck, Dr. Swift utilizes smaller, thinner liposuction cannulas than would otherwise be used with body liposuction procedures. In conjunction with state-of-the-art liposuction techniques and his keen eye for aesthetics, Dr. Swift is able to precisely target and remove unwanted fat, providing a harmonious balance between the neck and facial features – helping patients to take years off their appearance!
Benefits of Neck Liposuction with Dr. Swift
Improved Neck Contour: Neck Liposuction is an excellent option for individuals who struggle with excess fat under the chin, also known as submental fat. This fat often leads to the appearance of a double chin or a “turkey neck.” Dr. Swift’s precise liposuction techniques can sculpt the neck, removing unwanted fat and revealing a more defined, youthful neck contour.
Improved Facial Harmony: A well-defined neck enhances overall facial aesthetics, creating a balanced and harmonious appearance. By eliminating excess fat, Neck Liposuction can enhance the natural contours of the face, creating a more attractive and youthful profile.
Improve Your Self-Confidence: Excess fat in the neck area can negatively impact one’s self-esteem and self-image. Neck Liposuction can help restore confidence by providing a slimmer and more sculpted neck, allowing you to feel more comfortable and satisfied with your appearance.
Bring Out Your Facial Features: Each patient has their own unique facial features, and when done right, neck liposuction can help improve the look and overall appearance of the neck, chin and face overall – bringing out the best in your every facial feature!. During your consultation, Dr. Swift will carefully evaluate your specific issues and develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your individual anatomy and desired outcome.
Combine Neck Liposuction with Other Procedures
Depending on your specific needs, and your facial features, neck liposuction treatments can be combined with other facial procedures including a neck lift, facelift, mini facelift, chin augmentation, and much more! Oftentimes, liposuction procedures go hand-in-hand with a lifting technique, in order to remove the excess skin that might be left behind. This is especially important for older patients who might not have as much elasticity in their skin, as younger patient’s skin might have the ability to bounce back much faster.
Who is a Good Candidate for Neck Liposuction?
When it comes to neck liposuction, the ideal candidates are generally those patients with light to moderate excess fat along the neck area. Ideally, patients who want to improve their jaw line definition and lower facial profile may benefit quite a bit from such a procedure. And in most cases, the best candidates for neck liposuction are younger patients, below 40 as they have the most elasticity in their neck skin, and will be able to bounce back from surgery the best. However, for older patients, who might not have the most elasticity in their neck area, it is often recommended that they explore having a neck lift procedure done as well, as this will remove the excess skin that is left behind as well.
