What is Back Liposuction?
Back Liposuction is an advanced body contouring technique to remove excess fat and reshape the area of the back.
The fat on the back can be divided into several important areas
- Infra-scapular Fat – This area is located below the shoulder blades and above the waist and is the unsightly fat that bulges just below the bra strap on women.
- Posterior Axillary Fat – Located on the back near the armpits
- Posterior Waist Fat – Located above the hips and often referred to as love handles
- Lumbo-sacral Fat – Located in the midline of the lower back above the tailbone
- Buffalo Hump – Consists of fat located on the upper back near the neck.
Removal of fat from the infra scapular region of the back can be easily removed and reshaped as the fat hers is only a single subcutaneous layer. In women when a tight bra is worn the area tends to bulge out more considerably. Fat in this area is often fibrous. Fatty tissue contains both fat cells and fibrous tissue that hold that fat cells in place. The fat in this area of the body contains a very high proportion of fibrous tissue more than other area of the body. The nature of the fat in this area can make liposuction more difficult. However, at Contour Surgical we provide the most advanced techniques and by using smaller microcannulas in this area we can successfully treat this area with outstanding patient outcomes.
Removal of fat in the posterior axillary region of the back, the lumbo sacral region and the upper back near the neck all is easily removed by liposuction. Our focus at Contour Surgical is on patient safety and results. For this reason, we have found an advanced form of tumescent liposuction to provide the best outcomes for our patients.
The Posterior Waist region contains the most significant of fat deposits on the back region. Often when treated the hips and love handles this region is overlooked. As this area contains the larger fat deposits, we can treat it with a variety of liposuction techniques. Tumescent, Vaser and RadioFrequency Assisted are all very effective and provide outstanding outcomes for the patient.
The targeted fat removal on the back region means it can be permanently reshaped and enhanced.
