Back Fold and Roll Removal

We often think about out lower abdominal region or love handles when it comes to unwanted bulges and fat. Other parts of the body can give us problems as well. Women in particular often experience unwanted folds of skin and flab around the middle of the back around the bra line. Exercise and a healthy diet may not be enough to eliminate this bulge.

Thankfully, Dr. Mark A. Deuber offers body contouring and sculpting surgery options for loose and sagging skin, and there are a few procedures that may be helpful. The team at our Dallas, TX plastic surgery center would like to consider two common options for these back folds: liposuction and bra line back lift surgery. We’ll then discuss why one surgery may be more ideal for you.

Liposuction for Back Folds

If a person has just a little bit of unwanted back fat or flab, liposuction may be the answer. Liposuction is a surgery in which unwanted pockets of fat are targeted and removed. Liposuction isn’t meant for weight loss per se. Instead, it is an ideal option for getting rid of unwanted flab and fat that does not respond to diet and exercise.

Ideal Candidates for Liposuction

Good candidates for liposuction are people who have just a little bit of unwanted body fat that has not responded to an otherwise healthy lifestyle. They should be in good health otherwise and understand all of the risks and benefits associated with the surgery.

The Results of Liposuction

The overall outcomes of liposuction are usually excellent. The removal of fat around the back leads to a slimmer and trimmer overall body contour. Patients no longer have to feel self-conscious about unwanted back bulges or issues with their figure.

Bra Line Back Lift for Unwanted Folds

Sometimes liposuction isn’t enough to achieve the dramatic results patients are looking for. In these cases, a bra line back lift may be ideal.

This body contouring surgery involves an incision along the upper-middle portion of the back. Through this incision, unwanted fat and skin can be removed, eliminating the flab once the skin is pulled tighter.

Ideal Candidates for Bra Line Back Lift

Good candidates for a bra line back lift are patients who have back bulges that are too much of an issue to be treated with liposuction alone. They should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of surgery and the realities of surgical scarring.

The Results of Bra Line Back Lift

A bra line back lift can be extremely effective for many patients. The contour of the back is trimmer and slimmer as a result of surgery, without the unwanted bulging. The surgical scar is hidden by the patient’s bra strap and most bathing suits as well. That means excellent results without visible scarring.
