Why is the Back a Problem Area?

The back is often overlooked when doing exercise and even when getting dressed. However, the back is a common place for the body to store fat, and it often will be visible even through your clothes. The back can develop rolls of fat or a “bulge”, especially visible around the area of the bra clasps. Rolls of fat in the back are sometimes responsive to diet and exercise, but sometimes they can be unresponsive to more natural efforts. Liposuction is an effective way to reduce excess fat or bulging skin in the back.

How Does Liposuction Work?

Liposuction is a safe, effective way to get rid of excess fat. The procedure begins with either general or local anesthesia, depending on the amount of fat to be removed. Next, a small incision is made for liposuction of the back typically in the armpit and near the waist line, thena small tubule, or cannula, is inserted into the incision to gently suction out the fat from the area. Once all of the targeted fat is removed, the tubule is extracted, and the incision is closed. This procedure is minimally invasive, and, therefore, most patients experience very little side effects and downtime. The results are a slimmer, more toned back with no rolls or bulging. Bras and clothes typically fit better, and the procedure can even impact the appearance of your waist and of the overall silhouette of your body.
