You can even see it through clothes— that unsightly bulge above the waist on your back and sides. For women, it’s most obvious along the bra line, often unflatteringly called bra fat. This excess back fat cannot be reduced by exercise.

But now, with tumescent liposuction of the back, both men and women can permanently rid themselves of troublesome back fat, giving men masculine torsos and sides and providing women with smooth and svelte upper body profiles, both in and out of clothes.

Having a tumescent liposuction surgeon eliminate your back and bra bulge with liposculpture is much easier and safer than undergoing traditional liposuction. Call NOBU Medical Spa, 956-455-8899, for a free consultation and all your questions about the procedure will be answered.

WHY CHOOSE BACK AND BRA BULGE TUMESCENT LIPOSUCTION? IS IT FOR MEN OR WOMEN?

Both men and women benefit from back and bra fat liposuction. Back tumescent liposuction reduces fatty deposits along the back and sides above the waist, naturally tapering the back and restoring proportion to the body. Because a moderate amount of fat can be removed, patients see a more defined profile.

WHAT IS BACK AND BRA BULGE TUMESCENT LIPOSUCTION LIKE?

Back and bra bulge liposculpture is usually performed in an office or clinic setting under local anesthesia. Patients remain awake and sedated during the entire procedure. First the surgeon infiltrates the area with tumescent anesthetic solution and then places small incisions along the sides of the back, making sure to hide them in strategic places. Using gentle suction, excess fat is removed with a small cannula that measures 3 mm in diameter, the size of a cooked spaghetti noodle. The procedure takes about 2 to 3 hours, and patients walk out of the office with their new, sculpted bodies.

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR BACK OR BRA BULGE TUMESCENT LIPOSUCTION?

Tumescent liposuction of the back is a safe procedure for most men and women who have a high accumulation of dense, fatty deposits on the sides or across the breath of the upper back. If you can pinch more than a quarter inch of fat from your back above your waist, back or bra bulge, tumescent liposuction should improve your back profile by eliminating that fat. At NOBU Medical Spa, we can examine you and tell you whether or not you are a candidate for tumescent liposuction. Call 956-455-8899 for appointments.

CAN BRA BULGE AND BACK TUMESCENT LIPOSUCTION BE COMBINED WITH OTHER PROCEDURES?

Yes. Most of our patients at NOBU Medical Spa choose to have their back liposculpture procedure performed in conjunction with other procedures. Of course, not all patients need tumescent liposuction on other areas, so your surgeon can target the back alone.

WHAT ARE THE POST-OP PROCEDURES FOR BACK TUMESCENT LIPOSUCTION?

Patients generally experience only mild discomfort after the procedure. You can walk immediately afterward, enjoy light to medium activities and return to work in a day or two. Some, but not all patients, experience mild bruising. A compression garment similar to a girdle is worn around the torso to improve the final result. There is minimal to no pain involved. With tumescent liposuction of the back, there are no stitches and the tiny puncture wounds naturally close within two days. The most common discomfort patients experience is mild soreness similar to muscle ache that accompanies strenuous exercise.
