How Liposuction Banishes Back Fat–
As people are finally beginning to reenter society after the pandemic, many individuals now find that they are facing unsightly fat deposits in unusual places. The pandemic weight gain -sometimes called the “Quarantine 15” – has resulted in many men and women experiencing unwanted fat in new places on the body due to the past year of isolation and inactivity. And one place where fat readily accumulates – and then is almost impossible to remove – is the upper back.
“Back fat” – also called “bra bulge” or “bra rolls” – can be particularly difficult to banish because it often consists of a layer of adipose tissue under the skin (subcutaneous fat) that is “hard fat” rather than the visceral fat or “soft fat” that occurs around the abdomen.
If you are a man or women suffering from back fat, AMAE Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Oakland County has the solution. To reduce fat that has accumulated in the upper or lower back, liposuction is an ideal (and often the only) effective treatment. Some of the most dramatic results from liposuction can be seen when it is applied to the back.
Back liposuction can permanently remove back rolls, bulges around the bra, and other fatty lumps in the back. Patients can remove up to 11 pounds of fat in a single session with liposuction, and experience and an overall slimmer, smoother and more proportionate physique. Clothes (and bathing suits!) look better – and patients have a new sense of self-esteem and confidence.
Am I a Candidate for Back Liposuction?
Back liposuction is an ideal treatment for stubborn pockets of back fat that do not respond to diet or exercise. Many women have a hereditary predisposition to developing back fat that is not their fault – and liposuction can be the “miracle” that finally gets rid of it once and for all.
In fact, the back is one of the best areas of the body for liposuction. During back liposuction, an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Ali can use a more aggressive approach than they can on breasts or thighs. This because there is less excess skin on the back, and the skin on the back is less sensitive than in other areas of the body.
Although patients will typically lose several pounds of fat, back liposuction is not a weight loss method, per se – and is not safe or effective for people who are obese. However back liposuction IS a highly effective “inch loss” method that can take several inches of unsightly bulges off of the body.
How Back Liposuction is Performed
In performing back liposuction, a tube-like device called a cannula is gently inserted into the fat layer of the back. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali gently moves the cannula slowly back and forth to break up the fat cells and release them from the walls. These fat cells are then sucked out through the cannula.
Dr. Ali performs minimally invasive tumescent liposuction, so only local anesthetic is used – and patients are not “knocked out”. This modern liposuction technology means smaller incisions, barely visible scars that fade quickly, faster healing, less discomfort and better results than older, more invasive forms of liposuction.
Dr. Ali approaches the fatty tissue in the back from multiple angles, skillfully sculpting the body to achieve the most proportionate, smooth, consistent and natural-looking results possible.
Because back skin is thick it can be prone to drooping. So, the middle and upper back are usually liposuction at the same time, as a unit. This enables Dr. Ali to achieve a smooth, sculpted, proportionate appearance. For patients with large amounts of excess skin remaining that doesn’t “snap back” AMAE Plastic Surgery also offers several state-of-the-art, non-invasive skin tightening treatments that can be used in conjunction with liposuction.
Even better, because the body can never produce new fat cells, once the back fat is removed by liposuction it can never come back. SO, unlike dieting and exercising – which can be an endless roller coaster of gaining losing and regaining fat – back lipo is permanent.
