Are You Confident to Bare Your Back?

Baring one’s back seems like a breeze for most ladies. For others, it’s common to hear complaints about having bra fat, back fat, or horrible wings on their backs.

According to Plastic Surgeon Dr Marco, who practices at Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital, the accumulation of these unwanted fats falls under the condition of lipodystrophy.

This disturbing fat in the back accumulates once you put on a few kilos, and despite having an active lifestyle with regular exercising, fats in these areas tend to stay there. But the good news is that the back, due to its very thick dermis, is one of the best areas for liposuction. This is because it seldom leaves any irregularity or rippling skin. The thicker the dermis is, the better liposuction is.

For areas with thinner skin, like inner thighs or arms, we have to be more careful in removing too much fat. In the back, we can really clean out the subcutaneous fat due to better skin elasticity.

Dr Marco commented that with the aid of liposuction, the back of the body could be shaped into a perfect silhouette, resulting in a dramatic change.

The pre-surgical plan is critical as patients can be very detailed. Some even wear their swimsuit or a particular dress, asking to take a photo of the back and get it printed out and discuss with Dr Marco about the bulges on the back they want to be removed.

This back liposculpture can be done as a day surgery case. It can take up to two hours with either traditional liposuction, laser, or ultrasound-assisted liposuction.
