Upper Back Liposuction

Upper and lower back liposuction works to target back rolls, bulges and any lumps of fatty deposits that may be misshaping your back. This can result in a better fit for clothing, tighter skin, a slimmer physique, and an increase in self-confidence for both women and men.

Ageing, weight gain, and specific genes can cause pockets of fat in areas such as the back which can be hard to target and eliminate with diet and exercise. Back liposuction can help reduce these fat deposits by creating a slimmer body contour. This can include;

  • Bulges of fat caused by a bra
  • Rolls of fat in the upper and lower areas of the back
  • A disproportionate body shape

Enjoy a more desirable shape to your figure with upper or lower back liposuction to remove stubborn fat that is unaffected by diet or exercise.

How the Back Liposuction Procedure is Performed

The team at Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne uses a cannula, a thin steel tube which is inserted via a small incision to the targeted fat layer of the upper or lower back. The cannula is moved slowly back and forth to break up the fat cells, which are then removed by them being sucked out of the body with the same instrument.

Back liposuction is considered as a minimally invasive tumescent procedure which only requires a local anesthetic and minimal recovery time. This process means a faster healing time while still receiving effective results.

The aim of upper or lower back liposuction is to create a result that is consistent and natural. Fatty tissue is removed from the underside of the skin layer, creating a tight, smooth contour while also reducing the volume of fat.

Many men visit Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne to redefine the muscular tone of their back with upper or lower back liposuction.

The fat cells that are removed during liposuction cannot be produced again. This procedure is not, however, a replacement for a good diet and regular exercise as the remaining fat cells can expand. Fewer fat cells reduce the chance of putting on weight; however, diet and exercise is still recommended to assist the liposuction procedure with removing bulges.

Fat is measured in millilitres and litres, with around two and a half to three litres being able to be removed from the body via liposuction safely. This is considered to be a significant amount for a minimal procedure such as this and liposuction should be considered as a process that will help change your shape as opposed to losing weight.

Liposuction is not considered to be painful by the majority of our patients; however, everyone experiences a different pain threshold. A mild sedation is administered by an anaesthetist along with a local anaesthetic. The procedure can be done under local or general anaesthesia in a day surgery. There will likely be some discomfort for 24 hours after the procedure, which can be reduced with medication.

This will vary depending on the amount of liposuction you require, but around one to two hours for the procedure, not including the necessary recovery from sedation of at least four hours before you may leave the surgery.

Liposuction complications are very rare; however all surgery brings with it a standard set of risks which can include infection, excessive bleeding, nerve injury, and in extremely rare cases, superficial thrombophlebitis.

After liposuction surgery, there may be some visible signs on the skin, as the swelling doesn’t subside until around the four to six-week mark. This is more the case for those who have existing cellulite or other skin irregularities. Skin texture is unaffected with liposuction, and the healing potential and diet of the patient will determine the effect on the skin.

Bruising is common with liposuction; however, it will subside around the two to three-week mark. If there is some swelling, it will likely subside within the first week. The more telling result is what is evident around the 4-6 week point.

Most patients are able to go to work in about three days, albeit it with a slightly tender back. If possible, we recommend that you take three to seven days off work; however, this is not crucial and will depend more on your individual pain threshold and job type.

Upon removal of the fat layer, the skin will stick to the muscle and shrink depending on how good your elasticity is. The back region, however, rarely experiences any flabby excess skin and it is one of the best areas for liposuction as a result.
