Certain areas of the mid and upper back are prone to accumulating excess fat. This becomes increasingly apparent for women when wearing a bra causes the fat to bulge. The board-certified dermatologists and liposuction experts at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology can minimize this type of undesirable back fat in men and women with liposculpture treatments in San Diego.

How is Back Liposuction Performed?

Liposculpture of the back can effectively remove those pesky fatty deposits that don’t respond to diet and exercise. For men and women in San Diego, this area can be difficult to address. For women especially, the excess fat can cause bra bulges that are often uncomfortable and embarrassing.

Fatty deposits in the back tend to be more fibrous and dense than other common problem areas, such as the abdomen, making it even more important to visit a back fat liposuction expert for treatment. The doctors at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology commonly use the tumescent liposculpture method to eliminate back fat, sculpt the back and sides, and improve the patient’s self-confidence.

Tumescent liposculpture, performed by an expert, is a safe and effective way to minimize back fat. During the tumescent lipo procedure, the doctor numbs the treatment area with a local anesthetic, and then fills the fatty area with a special solution before removing the fat. The solution numbs the fat treatment area, making general anesthesia unnecessary, and constricts the blood vessels reducing the amount of bleeding. The doctor then removes the fatty deposits by suctioning them through small cannulas inserted into tiny incisions around the problem area. The doctor will artistically sculpt the back and sides so that the patient has a slimmer appearance and smooth result.

Q: Am I a good candidate for this fat removal procedure?

A: If you are a healthy adult struggling with excess fat on the back/bra area that has not responded to diet and exercise, you may be a good candidate for the liposuction procedure. It is important to remember, though, that lipo is not a weight loss procedure. It is a means of eliminating small amounts of stubborn fat. Schedule a consultation with one of our specialists today to see if you are a candidate.

Q: Is the procedure painful?

A: The doctor will numb the area before the procedure, and if undergoing tumescent lipo, the doctor will inject a special numbing solution into the fatty area to eliminate the need for general anesthesia. You will likely experience some discomfort during the recovery process, but the doctor will give you special instructions for managing the discomfort during your recovery.

Q: What are the side effects?

A: The first step in minimizing the side effects of liposuction is to visit an expert for treatment. Lipo is a safe procedure with minimal side effects when performed by a board-certified dermatologist with specialized training in fat removal procedures. Generally, patients will experience some swelling and bruising after undergoing liposuction of the back that resolves within a few days to a couple of weeks. If you do experience more serious side effects, contact your physician right away.

Q: When will I see results?

A: Most patients see some results within a few weeks of treatment; however, it can take about 6 months for full back fat liposuction results to be evident.

Q: How much does a liposculpture procedure cost?

A: The cost of liposuction in San Diego will vary depending on the treatment area and the treatment plan that you and the doctor have decided upon. Because each patient’s needs are so different, it is difficult to set one flat price for back fat liposuction. We suggest you schedule a consultation with one of our expert dermatologists to see if you are a candidate for back fat liposuction so that they can devise a customized treatment plan for you and the cost of the treatment can be discussed.
