Backs are the most common areas where stubborn fat can accumulate in pockets. Exercise and dieting cannot get rid of this fat. The procedure of back liposuction is done for women to correct bulges around a bra, back rolls, and other fatty deposits in the back.
After a back liposuction procedure, the skin in the area can look a lot tighter and the overall physique can look a lot slimmer. This is because the volume of fat has been reduced.
The procedure helps women to fit nicely in their clothes because the back is no longer disproportionate in shape. These women often feel a lot more confident about themselves. Women also appreciate that the procedure can result in more of an hourglass figure with a firmer, tighter buttocks.
The pockets of fat in the back are not deep and thick. They are mostly a layer of fibrous fat. So if excessive liposuction is done, it will injure the skin. Because of this, not all surgeons are ideal for this procedure. It will take a liposuction expert to perform it correctly.
Many areas of the back are treated with this procedure, including lumbo-sacral fat pads. These are small deposits of fat in the lower back that react well to liposuction.
The Female Back Liposuction Procedure
The technique of tumescent liposuction is performed to eliminate fat from the female back. It is a minimally invasive procedure and can be tailored according to your needs. The procedure typically takes a few hours to complete.
Saline and a local anesthetic, lidocaine, are infused into the treatment area. The doctor inserts a thin tube called a cannula into the pockets of fat in the back. The cannula is moved back and forth to break up the accumulated fat cells. After the fat cells have been broken up, they are suctioned out of your body.
The patient will be awake and comfortable during the liposuction procedure and numb to any pain. Periodically, she will shift position according to the surgeon’s instructions, as this will offer various other views for greater precision. The results look much more natural because of this. When all fat is removed, the skin becomes tighter and smoother.
The Recovery Process
The healing from the procedure is quite fast. The results are very impressive and are visible soon after the procedure. You can return to your normal routine and daily activities shortly after the surgery.
You may need to wear proper torso compression garments during your healing process. However, too much external compression is not needed; the anesthetic solution used and any residual blood from the procedure will be gradually eliminated by the normal exercise of breathing.
