What Causes Back Fat?

Many of our patients want to know what actually causes back fat? And, the answer depends on the specific patient. Back fat commonly accumulates on the back, causing back rolls or back fat rolls. This formation can be attributed to aging, poor diet, changing hormones, genetics, or being overweight, in general.

As you get older, your back muscles begin to shrink. This can contribute to both upper back fat as well as back fat in the lower portion of your back.

How is a Bra Strap Back Fat Removal Procedure Different From Other Procedures?

Many patients struggle with trying to spot reduce back fat. Most of the time, they are unsuccessful, simply because it’s impossible for a person to spot reduce fat. However, back liposuction will spot reduce stubborn back fat as well as smooth out the upper back, eliminating bra bulges or bra rolls.

What are the Benefits of Back Fat Removal and Back Lift Surgery?

Combining back liposuction with a back lift procedure can create a slimmer, more youthful-looking back by removing stubborn back fat and sagging skin.

Weight loss, genetics, and aging can contribute to the formation of loose skin on upper back, mid back, and lower back. This excess skin cannot be reduced by weight loss and must be surgically removed in order to tighten the back.

Additionally, layers of stubborn back fat and bra bulges are also extremely difficult to reduce with traditional weight loss methods. So, back liposuction is often needed to reduce fat deposits, while the back lift procedure removes excess skin.

Our plastic surgery patients can enjoy natural looking results by targeting love handles around the lower back, bra bulges in the mid back, and drooping skin around the upper back with this combination surgical procedure.

Our experienced Shreveport liposuction surgeon offers a variety of back fat liposuction options in addition to back lift surgery to achieve the appearance you’re seeking! We’ll list the benefits associated with each specific cosmetic procedure. To learn more, call our office for an initial consultation.

What Can You Expect During a Bra Line Fat Removal Surgery?

A back fat removal plastic surgery can create the look of a sleeker, tauter, smoother looking back by eliminating excess skin and fat cells above and below the bra line area on the back.

Before the cosmetic surgery, you’ll be placed under general anesthesia, and our nurses will mark where the incision site will be.

Then, during this cosmetic surgery procedure, our board certified plastic surgeon makes an incision across the back. This incision can be hidden with a swimsuit or bra. During the procedure, Dr. Wall removes your excess skin and excess fat. As this happens, the unwanted “back rolls” are smoothed out.

Patients who have a moderate to excess amount of extra back fat may also undergo back liposuction before the removal of excess skin.

Your plastic surgeon will make incisions within the excess skin targeted to be removed, if possible. This will help to prevent any additional scarring from additional incisions.

Once we have eliminated the excess fat, the tissue that is within the pre-marked site will be trimmed away and the edges of the skin will be pulled together. Doing this will eliminate any bra bulges, while tightening the back.

As we tighten the back skin, this smoothes all of the skin between your upper back and the top of your butt. But, it’s important to note that other procedures may be necessary to remove fat from the lower body. Some patients may be ideal candidates to get rid of back fat in both areas during one procedure. This will be discussed during the consultation, prior to the body sculpting procedure.

The entire procedure should take around 2 hours, and individual patient results may vary.


Bra Line Back Lift Recovery

Back liposuction and back lift procedure is a relatively simple outpatient procedure. Most patients will go home the same day as the surgery.

Because we do make tiny incisions and remove excess skin, you may want to take several days off of work, depending on your job.

Patients will immediately look slimmer after their back lift procedure, and these results will continue to improve over several weeks, as the swelling resolves.

Bra Line Back Fat Removal Cost

At The Plastic Surgery Center in Shreveport, LA, we offer affordable financing options that can help you get the individual results you’ve always dreamed of!

Any excess fat or back fat bulges that are removed during the fat liposuction or back fat removal surgery won’t return. However, if you choose to forgo your healthy eating habits and active lifestyle, this can lead to the development of new unwanted fat in the treatment area.

Ideal candidates for back fat removal or bra fat removal surgery are those who are unhappy with their back rolls or bulges in the back due to excess fat or sagging skin. For most patients, loose skin normally develops from losing weight. The weight loss can occur naturally or from a bariatric surgery. However, a bra line back lift procedure can also correct any loose skin that’s appeared as a result of prolonged sun exposure or general aging.
