What is Back Liposuction?
A trim, well-defined back looks beautiful in anything. The hourglass figure is stunning, but for some, stubborn back fat can settle in places like between the shoulders (“buffalo hump”) or the back rolls (“back boobs”). Body Contouring with SmartLipo of the back with Renuvion for skin-tightening is a great option to get rid of back fat. At Imagen, back lipo is commonly added to Lipo360 MAX to obtain a beautiful hourglass shape. Our liposuction technique is done with local anesthetic, through tiny incisions. Oral sedation and tumescent anesthesia help to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. During our liposuction procedure, we use the SmartLipo laser to liquify the fat and then the excess fat cells are removed using tiny cannulas.
Please note, liposuction is not a weight loss solution.
Am I a Good Candidate for Back Lipo?
An ideal candidate for fat removal through back liposuction is someone who is in good health, who hasn’t been able to get rid of undesired stubborn fat deposits with diet and exercise. You should be at or close to your ideal weight with good skin elasticity and realistic expectations for the results of your cosmetic procedure. If you have a significant amount of skin laxity, you may get a better result from a surgical procedure. A back lift or a circumferential body lift is similar to a tummy tuck.
Can Liposuction get Rid of Back Fat?
Back liposuction surgery can assist you to eliminate unsightly bra rolls (back boobs) and the infamous Buffalo hump in the upper back to give you smooth and beautiful curves. The combination of liposuction and skin-tightening will achieve natural looking contouring for a look that is fit and sculpted. Patients who struggle with folds around their bra line will love the relief they feel purchasing new lingerie or slipping on a fitted dress or shirt.
Back Liposuction Combinations: BBL or Lipo360
Many patients to treat other areas of the body in combination with their back lipo. Lipo360 and/or a fat transfer for buttock augmentation are the most combination with their back liposuction.
