Excess fat deposits around the bra line can be a source of frustration and self-consciousness for many individuals. Fortunately, bra fat roll liposuction offers a solution to target and remove these stubborn fat pockets, resulting in a more contoured upper back area. Here is what to know about this type of liposuction and how it can benefit your confidence.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes localized fat deposits. It is commonly performed to contour areas such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, and arms. The procedure involves making small incisions, inserting a thin cannula, and suctioning the excess fat. Liposuction is not a weight loss solution, but rather a method to enhance body contours by targeting specific problem areas.

Liposuction on Bra Fat Rolls

Bra fat roll liposuction, also known as bra line liposuction or bra bulge liposuction, focuses on reducing the fat deposits that create bulges or rolls around the bra line. This procedure specifically targets the upper back area, helping to achieve a smoother and more streamlined appearance. Patients can enjoy improved body proportions and increased confidence by removing excess fat.

Who is a Candidate for Bra Fat Roll Liposuction?

Bra fat roll liposuction is suitable for individuals with localized fat deposits in the upper back area. Patients should also be in good overall health. Ideal candidates for this procedure:

  1. Have excess fat deposits or bulges around the bra line area.
  2. Are at a stable weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
  3. Have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure.
  4. Have good skin elasticity, as it helps ensure the skin tightens appropriately after fat removal.
  5. Are non-smoking or willing to quit smoking for a specific period before and after the procedure

Add-ons to Liposuction Surgery

In some cases, additional procedures may complement bra fat roll liposuction to enhance the overall results. Two common add-ons include:

1. Tummy Tuck: Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and tightens the abdominal muscles. This procedure benefits individuals with bra fat rolls and loose abdominal skin or muscle separation.

2. Mommy Makeover: A mommy makeover is a comprehensive set of procedures designed to restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy body. It typically involves a combination of breast procedures, such as breast augmentation or breast lift, and body contouring procedures, like liposuction or tummy tuck. A mommy makeover can address multiple areas of concern, including bra fat rolls, to achieve a more comprehensive rejuvenation.

Procedure and Recovery

Consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in body contouring (such as Dr. Nakamura) is crucial before bra fat roll liposuction. During the procedure, small incisions are made and excess fat is suctioned out using a cannula. Recovery involves swelling, bruising, and wearing a compression garment. Results take time and require a healthy lifestyle for optimal and lasting outcomes.
