Do you have stubborn back fat around your bra line that is causing you to feel less attractive or self-conscious? This area of fat, often called “bra bulge,” is often intensified by bra straps and can even be visible over certain shirts. Unfortunately, it is very difficult (if not impossible) to spot reduce this region because the axillary roll (or “bra fat”) is commonly resistant to diet and exercise. In fact, many women who are at their ideal weight struggle with this stubborn area of fat.
With the help of a skilled plastic surgeon, however, you can achieve a confident and smooth silhouette – even around your bra line. Body contouring solutions such as liposuction can effectively reduce unwanted fat on the body, including the stubborn bra bulge.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is the gold standard to treat back fat along the bra line. The procedure is quick, minimally-invasive and involves inconspicuous scarring. It is typically completed in less than an hour under local anesthesia. Factors such as skin tone, texture, volume and elasticity are considered when determining your candidacy for liposuction.
During liposuction for bra fat, your plastic surgeon creates several small incisions and uses a wand-like vacuum to break up the unwanted fat and remove it using gentle suction. With a focus on the area between the armpit and hips, a smoother, slimmer and more attractive torso can be achieved. Best of all, the bra fat cells that were eliminated during liposuction do not return. Patients undergoing liposuction for bra fat may need to wear compression garments during healing and limit physical activity for a few days after the procedure.
