Removing Back Fat

Back or Bra |F O L D S|

Recently discovered to be a talking point amongst women, the ‘bra fold’  or ‘bra bulge’ it can be a common area for anxiety. This name is given to describe the overhanging skin and fat that some people get around their bra straps. It’s all about personal confidence when taking off your bra, either in front of a mirror or in front of your partner.

Let’s be clear here, we like to encourage there is nothing wrong with a ‘bra bulge’. However, if it bothers you, we can fix it.

Understanding ‘weight loss’ and ‘liposuction’.

When we gain weight, our fat cells enlarge. They will increase in size due to excess oil within the actual fat cell. When we lose weight, the fat cell still remains there, it just decreases in size because the oil within has reduced. So, we can consider fat cells as ‘containers that hold oil’.

When we perform liposuction or liposculpture, we physically remove these containers full of oil. This means, they can never come back. This is how we can actively change the shape of your figure, permanently.

About the Liposuction or Sculpting Procedure

The procedure involves provision of anti-anxiety medications as well twilight sedation. You should be a in a comfortable position, relaxed, rather drowsy but able to listen to instruction. You will then be given a local anaesthetic to numb the area where we are removing your body fat. The procedure shouldn’t cause any discomfort due to the anaesthesia.

From this point we will simply harvest your fat, the incision points are very small. Typically only 1 to 2cm in width, they do not require stitches. We aim to place the incisions in discrete locations. For a common liposuction procedure we will need to make about 2 to 4 incision sites. Of course this varies from patient to patient, procedure to procedure.

On completion of the procedure, you will be moved to our patient recovery lounge to rest and sleep. The sedative can take a few hours to wear off, but generally, patients are ready to go home about an hour after the surgery. You should be able to walk out of the surgery, but you may feel dizzy and lightheaded.

Our team will discuss with you our set of post-operative care instructions to encourage the healing process.

Liposuction to Upper or Mid back

The typical cost of liposuction to the upper back is $4,700*

  • This cost does not cover the entire lower back, if you would like to extend the procedure to;
    • mid back, will add an extra $1,100*
    • lower back, this will add an extra $1,200* (does not including love handles)

Typically we can combine 3 of these areas in a single treatment, the total price will be approx. $6,300* (does not including love handles).

*These are typical costs, for the average person it should not change. However, every patient is different, these prices may change per patient scenario.
