Chin and Neck Liposuction on the Upper East Side

Liposuction holds a steady position as the gold standard for minimally invasive fat removal, and the under-chin and neck area are two of the most popular areas for this treatment to be performed because it can be so transformative. Neck and chin liposuction balances out the facial features, improves the profile, and takes both weight and age off your appearance. Dr. Reitzen is able to perform this procedure at her Upper East Side facility. 

Benefits of Neck and Chin Liposuction

  • Removes a double chin
  • Refines the jawline
  • Improves the appearance of the profile
  • Achieves a slender, more attractive neck
  • Provides overall improvement to the face and neck
  • Less invasive than surgery, with less downtime
  • Results are long-lasting (permanent with stable weight)
  • Enhances self-image, confidence, and quality of life

Why Fat Accumulates in the Chin and Neck

With age, the neck and jawline begin to gain weight as a result of accumulated fat tissue. In addition, the skin of these areas begins to lose elasticity and muscle strength, which means it cannot “hold” fat as it used to in youth.

The result is often a double chin where there was once a defined neck and “jowls” where there was once a sculpted jawline. This can be disheartening for many individuals, but neck and chin liposuction can greatly help.

Who is a Candidate for Chin and Neck Liposuction?

If you’re in the Tribeca and Upper East Side area and you’re considering chin liposuction or neck liposuction, you may be the ideal candidate. Men and women who are good candidates for this procedure are those who:

  • Are bothered by the excess fat around their neck and under their chin
  • Have firm, fairly elastic skin tone and localized fat
  • Are non-smokers in overall good health
  • Have realistic expectations about what neck and chin liposuction can do
  • Fully understand the procedure, risks, recovery, and what to expect

Recovery and Results

Neck and chin liposuction patients typically require one week of recovery. Most patients will need to wear a compression garment or wraps for a few days to help with healing. During recovery, you can expect to experience swelling, bruising, soreness, and sometimes light bleeding. You will need to avoid strenuous activities during your first week of recovery. 

Early results are usually seen at two weeks, with final results at six months. If you maintain a stable weight, your results will be very long-lasting, perhaps even permanent. Be sure to closely follow Dr. Reitzen’s home care guidelines for a smooth recovery and optimal results.
