3 Surprising Ways to Get Rid of Back Fat

3 Ways to Get Rid of Back Fat (#3 Will Surprise You!)

If you have unwanted back fat – sometimes called “bra rolls” or “back bulges” – you know that it simply does not respond to diet or exercise. Even women at or near their ideal weight can suffer from dreaded, unsightly back fat – especially as they get older.

Back fat can squeeze out from beneath bra bands and straps, ruining the appearance of t-shirts and other fitted clothing, or apparel made from thin material. And, sadly, back fat can make a woman think twice about even considering a sleeveless wedding dress or evening gown.

The good news is that AMAE Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in the greater Troy, MI area offers three fast, affordable and permanent solutions to back fat. And the third back fat treatment option we offer is sure to surprise most people! Bra roll reduction can be done via liposuction, CoolSculpting, and now by Kybella injection!

What Causes Back Fat

There are two primary causes of back fat. And the first simply can’t be helped: heredity. The placement of fat on our bodies is primarily determined by our genes. That’s why even “thin” people can have stubborn fat deposits on their thighs or their back – no matter how much they work out or how little they eat.

Additionally, as women age, the spine compresses causing a loss of height. According to a report by the AARP, women lose an average two inches in height between the ages of 30 and 70, and by age 80, most women have shrunk a total of three inches.

So, if you put the same amount of hereditary back skin and fat on a smaller frame, it is simply going to “bulge” more as the woman loses inches. Fortunately, all three treatments available at AMAE Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in the Troy, Mi area can get rid of back fat – so you feel confident and sexy in whatever you wear!

#1. Liposuction to Get Rid of Back Fat

The fastest way to remove the largest amount of fat that has accumulated in their upper or lower back is liposuction. Some of the most dramatic results from liposuction can be seen when it is applied to the back.  Patients can lose several ounces or even pounds of fat with lipo. A tube-like device called a cannula is gently inserted into the fat layer of the back and the fat cells are suctioned out. Once the back fat cells are removed, they are gone for good and fat cells can never return in that area!

CoolSculpting is a less invasive method for getting rid of back fat – killing fat cells by freezing them, after which they are eliminated by the body. CoolSculpting can reduces approximately 20 to 25% percent of the fullness of the “back bulge” during a single 35-minute session – without incisions or surgery. And multiple treatments can remove even more.

A specially designed CoolSculpting applicator called the CoolCurve is specially shaped to target and eliminate unwanted back fat. Results begin to show after a few weeks but will become dramatically visible after several months, as the body continues to flush the frozen and destroyed fat cells. And there is no downtime with CoolSculpting back fat removal.

#3. Kybella to Get Rid of Back Fat

The newest and most surprising way to get rid of back fat is with Kybella injections! Originally approved to destroy and eliminate unwanted submental fat in the “double chin” area, Kybella has more recently proven effective at reducing bra fat rolls. The FDA approved Kybella to get rid of back fat in 2018.

Kybella is an injectable medicine that literally dissolves fat, much in the same way that a detergent can break down grease. A series of “shots” targets and dissolves the fat in the bra roll, and then the body removes the liquified fat through its natural elimination processes.

Kybella typically requires multiple treatments, depending on the amount of back fat being targeted. But on average, 2 or 3 Kybella sessions are all that is needed to get rid of small to moderate-sized “bra bulges”.

Your clothes, sleeveless dresses, bathing suits (and lingerie!) will look better. And you will have a new sense of self-esteem and confidence, on the beach, at the banquet, or in the boardroom or the bedroom!

Spa Gift Certificates: The Perfect Father’s Day Gift

Spa Gift Certificates for Men’s Cosmetic Services: the Perfect Father’s Day Gift!

Father’s Day is June 21st – which is only two weeks away! And if your Dad or husband is like ours, he’s extremely difficult to shop for.

Many Dads go out and buy whatever they want for themselves – making gift giving even harder! And we’re pretty sure that the Dad in your life probably does NOT want (or need) another shirt or tie or bottle of cologne for Father’s Day.

But, this year the uncertainty and seclusion of the recent coronavirus quarantine has been just as hard on Dad as it has been on the rest of us. After weeks of isolation, uncertainty, working from home, homeschooling kids, and worrying about the rest of the family, most Dad’s could really use some “pampering” right about now.

A gift certificate from AMAE Plastic Surgery & Med Spa let’s you give Dad something he really wants … like better abs or a more youthful face! We don’t know one Dad who wouldn’t want to be thinner or better looking! And, even better, our Gift Certificates can now be purchased online – making them the ideal last minute gift that you can give without even leaving the house to shop.

In this article we tell you about three procedures that we offer at our Birmingham Medical Spa that Dad probably really wants, but would never buy for himself. When you buy a gift certificate online, Dad can choose from these or any service that he likes.

Give Dad Better Abs for Father’s Day with CoolSculpting

After a kid or two, many men develop the dreaded Dad Bod: thicker around the middle, less defined abs, and those chunky “love handles” that don’t respond to diet or exercise.

CoolSculpting is a completely non-invasive, non-surgical fat-removal procedure, with no downtime. A handheld applicator applies cold temperatures to the unwanted fat. This applicator “freezes” or “crystalizes” the fat cells, and the body then naturally eliminates them. This is a permanent fat removal solution – and the fat never comes back to the CoolSculpted area.

CoolSculpting can remove fat and inches from Dad’s waist, abs, “love handles” and even his “double chin”. Why not give Dad a body he (and Mom!) will love with a gift certificate for CoolSculpting?

Give Dad a Younger Face for Father’s Day with Botox

We know Dad would probably never buy a cosmetic procedure for himself. But we also know that those lines and furrows caused by age and stress (and worring about you!) probably bother him a lot.

Botox is a safe, effective and popular treatment for reducing the signs of aging in men as well as women. In fact, more than 450,000 men received Botox treatments in the year 2016 alone!

Recently many male celebrities – including everyone’s favorite American idol judge Simon Cowell – have openly stated that they rely on Botox for maintaining their youthful good looks!

Our Botox prices are the lowest in the Birmingham, MI area at only $12 to $13 per unit, making them an affordable Fatrher’s Day gift. Call us or come in for a Botox Gift Certificate today.

Fix Dad’s Double Chin for Father’s Day with Kybella

If your Dad has a double chin, he probably hates it and feels very self-conscious about it. But he may not know that you can easily get rid of a double chin with a series of injections that destroy the “submental” fat cells beneath the chin area.

No incisions are required, each treatment only takes about 15 to 20 minutes in our discreet Birmingham Med Spa, and there is little to very minimal downtime for most patients. So Dad can get back to work, with no one having to know he had his double chin “dissolved”.

Double Chin: CoolSculpting vs. Kybella

What’s Better for Getting Rid of a Double Chin: CoolSculpting or Kybella?

Nobody wants a double chin – but unfortunately this area of fat is usually hereditary and impossible to lose with diet or exercise. Fortunately, new non-surgical technologies such as Kybella Injections and CoolSculpting “fat freezing” can now reduce or eliminate dreaded double chins!

For decades, surgical procedures – including liposuction and neck lifts – were the only option for getting rid of extra fat (“submental fullness”) under the chin.  Now patients have multiple non-surgical options when it comes to getting rid of their double chin.

Dr. Ali has helped hundreds of men and women in the Detroit and Ann Arbor get the sleek, defined jawline that they have always wanted. In this article he discusses which treatment is better for a double chin: Kybella or CoolSculpting?

Kybella for Double Chin

Kybella is the only injection approved by the FDA for eliminating unwanted fat beneath the chin. Kybella is a synthetic version of the substance dexoycholic acid, which causes the rapid destruction and absorption of fat cells – and also prevents future fat accumulation. The destroyed fat cells are slowly eliminated by body’s natural metabolic processes.

Coolsculpting for Double Chin

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical body treatment that literally freezes unwanted fat.  The dead fat cells are then gradually expelled from the body through natural processes. The fat removal is permanent and the double chin will not recur.

The FDA has recently approved CoolSculpting for treatments of smaller areas of the body, including under the chin. A new applicator called the CoolMini targets fat cells in double chins to freeze them off.

Similarities of Kybella & CoolSculpting for Double Chin

In both procedures only fat cells are targeted, and all other cells and tissue are not affected at all. And both Kybella and Coolsculpting Coolmini can dramatically improve the chin area, and substantially define the jawline.

Additionally, both treatments are non-surgical – meaning no scarring, no anesthesia, and no downtime with either Kybella or CoolSculpting. Side effects of both Kybella and Coolsculpting CoolMini are minimal, and may include swelling, bruising, redness, or discomfort that typically subsides in less than a week.

Differences of Kybella & CoolSculpting for Double Chin

Individuals who dislike needles may prefer CoolSculpting, as Kybella is performed through a series of injections.

However, because it is injectable, Kybella can treat smaller, more precise or isolated areas of the chin.  While CoolSculpting treats the whole area, rather than smaller targeted areas.

CoolScupting CoolMini may be preferable for patients with loose or mature skin, as it has recently been proven to have some skin tightening effects on “lax” neck skin.

Treatments Required

While improvements are possible after a single treatment of Kybella or CoolSculpting CoolMini, most patients will require a series of treatments in order to achieve their final desired result.

Kybella sessions normally last 10 to 20 minutes, and involve multiple injections. Almost all patients require multiple sessions in order to achieve optimal results. Most individuals require three to six sessions of Kybella to fully treat the double chin.

CoolSculpting sessions lasts approximately 45 minutes. Patients typically require two sessions to fully eliminate all of their unwanted double chin fat, but generally will see a noticeably stronger jaw after just one treatment.

Results Time

With Kybella, most patients see a 50 percent fat reduction after just two sessions, and a 70 percent reduction after four – with full results after six Kybella treatments. Kybella requires the dead fat cells to be metabolized and eliminated by the body, so it will be a few weeks after each treatment before you see the fat start to melt away.

A single CoolSculpting Mini session can reduce neck fat by up to 20-25 percent, with similar results in each successive treatment. It can take approximately 8-12 weeks for your body to break down and metabolize crystallized fat cells after a CoolSculpting CoolMini session.

Best CoolSculpting in Detroit & Ann Arbor

The best way to determine which double chin treatment is best for you is to discuss your goals with a board certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Ali who offers Kybella and CoolSculpting – in addition to other double chin remedies such as liposuction and neck lifts. Dr. Ali will assess your double chin and help you choose the best treatment for your individual needs.

As an aside, it is wise to be very wary of doctors or clinic that only offer one type of double chin procedure. They may try to steer or pressure you into the one procedure they offer – even if another procedure would be better for you. Only a surgeon like Dr. Ali who offers multiple treatment options can give you the choices you need, so you can chose the double chin treatment that is best for you.

Dr. Ali has helped hundreds of women and men across the Detroit & Ann Arbor area get the jawline they have always wanted with Kybella, CoolSculpting, Liposuction and Neck Lifts. He will be happy to offer you a consultation to help you understand your options and decide which double chin treatment is right for you. And remember, financing options are also available!
