While liposuction is not a healthy form of weight loss, it can help sculpt and trim certain areas of your body if there are stubborn pockets of fat. Excess fat accumulation on the back is a common area that individuals seek help with. Back fat is common for various reasons including age, genetics, hormonal changes, poor diet, and a sedentary lifestyle. However, many of our patients struggle with excess back fat despite being dedicated to a healthy lifestyle. Center for SmartLipo and Plastic Surgery offers back liposuction in Philadelphia, PA for patients who want to target that stubborn fat that accumulates here to achieve a smooth, contoured back.
Can Liposuction Target Back Fat?
Back fat or “back rolls” can make a person feel self-conscious leading to lower self-confidence. Back fat can affect the overall body contour making it difficult to wear certain clothes comfortably. It creates this bulging effect making bras, swimwear, dresses, and fitted tops almost impossible to wear. Large fat rolls on the back can even limit activities and create health concerns due to rashes.
Thankfully, liposuction is an effective solution that can target back fat. SmartLipo™ is a form of laser lipo that uses laser energy to remove localized pockets of fat deposits. It delivers permanent results when traditional forms of weight loss fail to shred the fat rolls located on the back.
Back Liposuction in Philadelphia, PA
SmartLipo™ is an advanced laser liposuction technique that the Center for SmartLipo and Plastic Surgery uses to target back fat. Not only will it reduce the size of your fat rolls, but it will tighten the skin in that area to produce smoother results.
Your doctor will make a small incision and then insert the small cannula inside the back near the fat deposits. They will move the cannula around the pockets of fat and the laser energy will liquefy the fat cells. Then they will easily suction out the liquefied fat cells. Once the desired amount of fat is removed and your back is sculpted to your liking, they will close up your incision.
Recovery from SmartLipo™ on the Back
Recovery from laser liposuction on the back is faster, more comfortable, and easier compared to traditional liposuction. After your procedure, you should expect to feel mild discomfort, see some bruising, and experience some swelling in the treated area. These symptoms should only last a few weeks or less.
To minimize the swelling, we will put you in a compression garment. You will need to wear this as directed to support healing and help with your swelling. We will also prescribe you pain medication for a few days to help keep you comfortable. Most patients can return to normal activities in just a few weeks.
