Back/Bra Bulges Liposuction


Liposculpture of the back can improve the way you look both in and out of your clothes. For women, back liposuction removes fat from above the waste and below the shoulder blades, as well as along the sides of the back. This dramatically reduces the unsightly "bra bulges" - the rolls of fat that squeeze every time you put a bra on.

For men, Tumescent Liposuction of the back can remove the dense, excess layers of fat along the back, creating a more tapered, sleek torso.

Because fat on the back tends to be very fibrous and dense, combining the Tumescent technique with Vaser and Smart Lipo can help to achieve optimal results. By using the gently vibrating suctioning, fat is broken up and removed gentler and easier than with traditional liposuction.

Back Liposculpture at Houston Smart Lipo Centers is an easy, safe, and gentle procedure. First, a local anesthetic is used to numb the back. Then, a laser is used to gently melt the fat directly under the skin and to encourage skin-tightening. Sometimes the surgeon may use Vaser to help melt the dense fat in this area. Incisions are then placed along the sides of the back, allowing the doctor to sculpt and trim your sides, from the shoulder blades to the waist. The cannula used to remove the fat is only about 3mm wide - low, gentle movements mean less pain, less bruising, and a rapid recovery time for patients.

  • Tumescent Liposuction is a permanent, lasting procedure this is because you body does not make new fat cells.
  • Our back Liposculpture procedure is designed to reduce fat and tighten skin.
  • Since Tumescent Liposuction is performed with only light sedation and takes only an hour or two, most of our patients are back at work in one or two days.

What are the benefits of back liposuction?


No more bra bulges, better fitting clothes, improved confidence, tighter skin, and a more youthful appearance:  These are just some of the reasons our patients choose liposuction to remove the fatty deposits along their back and sides.  A tumescent liposuction procedure reduces these fatty deposits, naturally sculpting and tapering the back down to the waistline.



What is the procedure like?


The Liposculpture procedure is performed in our offices under local anesthesia - all patients remain awake and alert.  First, the skin is numbed and two small incisions are placed along the sides of the back.  Using gentle suction, fat is removed with a gently vibrating cannula, or straw-like instrument.  The cannula itself is only 3mm wide - about the size of a strand of cooked spaghetti - and won't leave any unsightly scars.  The procedure lasts about an hour or two, and patients walk out of the office with newfound confidence.



Am I a good candidate for back Liposuction?


Tumescent Liposuction of the back is a safe procedure for most men and women who have a high accumulation of dense, fatty deposits along the sides or across the breadth of the back. Houston Smart Lipo Centers offer complimentary consultations to address any concerns you may have.



Can back Liposuction be combined with other procedures?


Of course. Many of our patients choose to have back Liposculpture done in conjunction with other procedures. We invite you to tailor this procedure according to your individual needs.



Will I have any scars or sagging skin?


Tumescent Liposuction at Houston Smart Lipo Centers uses a very small tube (cannula) to remove fat and will not leave any unsightly scars. The puncture sites will naturally close within a day or two, fading into the surrounding skin.


When combined with Smart Lipo, Liposculpture is designed to promote skin-tightening and restore collagen.   Unless your skin is already very thin, wrinkled, or lax due to aging or dramatic weight loss, you will usually see an improvement in skin tone and firmness. 



What are the post-op procedures?


Following the procedure, patients normally experience only mild discomfort - similar to that felt after strenuous exercise.  You will be able to walk immediately after, enjoy light to medium activities, and return to work in a day or two.  Some, but not all, patients will experience mild bruising.  A compression garment similar to a girdle will be worn around the torso for 3 days and nights, and then at least 8 hours a day for 2 weeks. 

Some patients may experience bruising or swelling after the procedure.  Good results can be seen within a few weeks, final results within six months.  While it does take a while for the swelling to go down, there is usually minimal to no pain involved.  With Tumescent Liposuction of the back, there are no stitches and the tiny puncture wounds will naturally close within two days.
