Neck Liposuction for Thin Patients

New York NY Facial Plastic Surgeon

Genetics play a huge role in how each body holds on to and stores fat. There are millions of people who exercise frequently and who keep a consistently healthy diet who have “trouble spots” on their body. These stubborn areas of fat are often frustrating and cause feelings of embarrassment. One of the most common areas of complaint for embarrassing stores of fat is beneath the chin. A “double chin” adds significant fullness to the face and neck even for those who are at a healthy weight. Liposuction of the neck is a specialized procedure that can achieve a better defined and more attractive neckline by permanently removing pockets of fat below the chin area.

Neck liposuction is a relatively quick procedure in most circumstances, and it can often be performed under local anesthesia. This cosmetic procedure generally provides the best results for younger patients, between the ages of 20 to early 50s. During these years, patients typically have good skin elasticity to help the skin contract smoothly and evenly after liposuction. For older patients, those who are significantly overweight, or those who have lost a significant amount of weight and have loose, hanging skin, a neck lift is often advised after neck liposuction to pull the skin of the neck tighter and into an attractive position.

Neck liposuction can achieve amazing results in thin patients. Liposuction was originally developed to treat those who had a “trouble spot” that was not treatable with diet and exercise. Many people find that when they lose weight that they lose it proportionally all over; however, some suffer from stubborn disproportionate areas of fat. These areas can be successfully targeted and improved with liposuction. Neck liposuction for thin patients allows those with a disproportionate double chin to find results that are pleasing and desired for their size and weight.

If you are troubled by a stubborn double chin that refuses to improve with weight loss, or if you are naturally thin and still struggle with stored fat at your neck line, contact Dr. Maurice Khosh in Manhattan. When genetics play a role in how your body stores fat, eliminating trouble spots can be extremely difficult. Dr. Khosh understands the art in using neck liposuction to help thin patients achieve an attractive neck line and overall pleasing facial appearance. Contact our practice today to schedule a private consultation to discuss neck liposuction procedure.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results
Kaitlin M.
Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Joann M.
After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
