Get Rid of Back / Bra Fat with Liposuction

Posted on September 5, 2022

Back Fat Reduction

The amount of strength training or cardio performed by a person in the gym ceases to matter where stubborn back fat is concerned. The fat is squeezed under the bra line for women. When seen from behind it makes the body look unshapely and poorly toned.

Bra or back fat liposuction delivers significantly noticeable improvements. The procedure is better for patients that have not lost a significant amount of weight.

Types of Back Fat

Back fat can be classified according to the location:

  • Infra-scapular fat: This is also called female flanks and is located right above the waist and below the shoulder blades. This is fat that bulges right below the bra strap.
  • Posterior axillary fat: This is located on the upper-outer back. It is present near the armpit.
  • Posterior waist fat: This is found behind and above the hips.
  • Lumbo-sacral fat pad: This fat is located on the middle of the lower back, above the tailbone.
  • Buffalo hump: This is the fat located on the upper back right near the neck.

What is the Infra-scapular Back?

This is the region right below the bra on the back. The fat present in this area is in the form of a subcutaneous layer that doesn’t have well-defined deeper fat compartments. The area bulges more conspicuously when one wears a bra.

Some women are genetically predisposed to collecting fat in this area. Obesity can cause the back to store more fat and the skin to bunch into parallel rolls of fat. Tumescent liposuction cosmetic surgery with microcannulas can remove this unappealing localized bra fat.

Liposuction Procedure

Series of tiny incisions will be made by the surgeon at the target area. Cannula will be inserted in the incision area to gently suction fat out of the body. In some cases, vibration or UV light may be used for heating and melting the fat. Heating also helps in tightening the skin.

Patients generally get this procedure done with regional or local anesthesia. It takes about 1 – 2 hours to complete the fat reduction plastic surgery procedure depending on the amount of fat that needs to be removed.

Post-Operative Care

Post-operative care only involves covering with super-absorbent pads. These will be held in place using torso compression garment. You won’t need extra tight compression. Residual blood-tinged anesthetic solution will be expelled during respiration and other routine activities.

Suitable Candidates

Ideal candidates would be in good overall health. They would preferably not be smokers. Liposuction for eliminating back fat is neither a skin tightening procedure, nor a weight loss procedure. Fat is eliminated from specific body areas for creating a more sculpted and toned body shape.

Patients with excess skin as a result of rapid weight loss may want to consider another procedure for skin tightening.
