Liposuction Can Get Rid of Unsightly Bra Bulge

Unwanted body fat can have a negative impact on your appearance and self-esteem. That’s especially true if you suffer from a bra line bulge. Unwanted fat appears squeezed by your bra straps, which can be a major source of self-consciousness.

Thankfully, Dr. Mark Deuber offers cosmetic fat removal with liposuction. The team at our Dallas, TX practice would like to consider how liposuction can be used to treat bra bulge, helping women look their best in the process.

What Is That Bulge Along the Bra Line?

In basic terms, the bulge around the bra line is caused by unwanted body fat located around the armpits, the upper and mid back, the sides of the torso, and the front of the torso where the chest and abdomen meet.

Since spot reduction is a myth, this fat around the back and torso is especially difficult to get rid of through diet and exercise alone. Thankfully there is liposuction, a surefire solution to pockets of unwanted fat.

Good Candidates for Liposuction

Ideal candidates for liposuction have just a little bit of body fat that they’d like to get rid of. They are in good overall health and do not suffer from medical problems that would cause liposuction to become a risk to general wellness.

Liposuction is only intended to remove a relatively small amount of body fat. A surgeon may recommend that the patient exercise and eat healthy for a few months prior to surgery in order to lose weight and body fat naturally. This can help improve the results and long-term maintenance of the surgery.

The Liposuction Procedure

During liposuction around the bra bulge area, the surgeon will use a cannula to remove unwanted body fat along the back and torso. The surgery will focus mainly on the area between the armpit and the hips, sculpting a much more appealing torso in the process. The bulge at the top of the abdomen can also be addressed as needed.

Working deliberately and sculpting the fat, a plastic surgeon will ensure that the bulging around the bra straps is far less pronounced.


Recovery from Liposuction

Following liposuction of the bra bulge area, it’s not uncommon for patients to experience soreness, swelling, bruising, and some fluid leakage. These are normal side effects, and patients will notice they become less of an issue with proper rest and by following post-op instructions closely.


Patients will want to take some time off from work after liposuction so they can focus on healing. People with jobs that are not physically demanding will be able to return to their job sooner.


The Results of Liposuction

Thanks to liposuction that’s targeted to the sides and upper torso, women no longer have to worry about that unsightly bra bulge. The skin around the bra straps won’t seem so compressed and pushed out, leaving a patient’s body looking slimmer and trimmer. There is very little visible scarring after the procedure since the cannula is so small.


With a sensible, balanced diet and regular exercise, the results of liposuction can last for many years to come.
