Bra rolls, or excess fat on the back around the bra line, can be a frustrating area to deal with. Not only is it nearly impossible to camouflage under clothes, but it can make you look heavier overall, even when you’ve worked hard to lose weight and get healthy. In fact, fat on the back is a common problem in both men and women alike, and is very hard to eliminate through lifestyle changes alone.
If you’re dealing with this common problem area, you may have already tried back exercises and diets only to find that the fat remains. This is why many patients turn to cosmetic surgery to finally solve this problem. Liposuction, and especially Smartlipo™, is a great way to get your confidence back and say bye-bye to those bra rolls for good.
How does Smartlipo help?
Smartlipo is a more advanced, less invasive way to remove fat cells from problem areas like the back, abdomen, thighs, arms, and more. It uses smaller instruments — and smaller incisions — to give you precise results without the downtime and recovery of traditional liposuction.
But having the best tools and technology isn’t all you should be looking for. Sculpting the back to an attractive shape requires the expertise of a plastic surgeon who is skilled in an advanced procedure like Smartlipo. You want your results to look natural, and to fit and flatter your individual shape.
What can I expect?
With Smartlipo, the surgeon uses the power of laser technology to remove fat and help the skin tighten and retract over your new, slimmer figure. Perhaps one of the best qualities of Smartlipo is its convenience for people with busy schedules and commitments. No general anesthesia is needed, and many patients return to work the following day! Any post-surgical bruising or discomfort is manageable, and you’ll likely wear a compression garment for just two weeks or less. This is a big difference from traditional liposuction methods that require a week or more of downtime and several weeks of compression garments.
If you’ve thought you couldn’t get a sculpted back and wear fitted shirts or a swimsuit, it may be time to find out if Smartlipo can get rid of that annoying back fat so you can step out with confidence this summer.
How do I choose a surgeon?
You’ll want to discuss your options for Smartlipo with a trained, qualified plastic surgeon before you move forward with the procedure. Find out if you are a good candidate for the procedure, and talk about your aesthetic goals and when you’d like to have it done. Be sure to ask the surgeon if he or she is experienced in Smartlipo and ask to see before and after photos of patients who have had back fat removed. This is a great way to see the surgeon’s skill and determine whether you can expect safe, reliable results.
