Modern Lipo

Summary: Most people think of liposuction as a fix for love handles, but there are plenty of other body contouring concerns that can be improved with the help of a little lipo as well. How much would you love to eliminate the fatty deposits that peek out around your bra strap or bikini top, either through the upper back or just in front of the underarm? Here’s a closer look at how lipo can tackle those exact problem spots.

What Causes Bra Fat?

The increase in fatty deposits throughout the upper arms, back and bra top area becomes more common as women age. This is partially due to the naturally occurring age-related changes in the breast tissue, but weight gain can also be a contributing factor. As gravity pulls downward, breasts often migrate slightly forward as well, relocating volume outward and decreasing fullness at the same time.

There are a few tricks that women can try to minimize the appearance of these fatty spots, like adjusting bra sizes or avoiding sleeveless, close-fitting tops and dresses. Some women may change their diet and exercise routine in hopes of slimming down just in those areas, yet unfortunately there’s no way to choose exactly where excess weight may be lost from the body.

Liposuction: A Targeted Solution

Liposuction offers a solution that exercise and diet can’t: the choice of deciding exactly where you’d like to eliminate excess fatty tissue. A skilled and experienced cosmetic surgeon can use microcannulas to permanently remove your bra bulge for good. The result is slimmer, smoother lines and more confidence in your updated appearance.
