If you have a fat roll under your breast, you may want to eliminate it. Having excess fat anywhere on the body can cause self-confidence issues. However, when it is beneath the breasts, it can spoil the line of your clothing. It can also deter you from wearing workout gear or going swimming. As a result, it can be challenging to get rid of the fat roll. With this in mind, it isn’t difficult to see why some people search for another solution. Some people suggest massage as a way of eliminating fat rolls. However, does it really work?
How Can Massage Burn Fat?
The idea that massage can eliminate fat has been around for a long time. During the early years of the 20th century, there was a fad for mechanical massage machines. These machines allegedly helped reduce fat by sending signals to the cells that produce the physiological response of activating lipolysis. Even today, there are similar machines on the market. But their effectiveness in eliminating fat hasn’t been proven. Regular massage may damage the fat cells, but that doesn’t always result in fat loss either. Proper massage therapies are proven to boost blood circulation, reduce stress and relax muscles. Yet, while those things are beneficial for overall well-being, they don’t really help with fat loss.
Will Exercises Help?
There is a general idea that dieting and exercising are the only ways to get rid of any excess fat. Of course, if you’re very overweight, these options can help. If you lose weight overall by eating healthy and working out, the fat rolls underneath the breasts should reduce. However, if you’re near your ideal weight but still have excess fat in this area, dieting and exercising won’t help.
Some forms of exercise are particularly helpful in reducing fat under the breasts. Aerobic workouts, strength training, yoga, and specific exercises to target the upper abdominals may be beneficial. That is especially the case if your muscles lack tone. However, again, the results of your workouts may not be dramatic. They may also not help at all, especially if you’re already close to your ideal BMI, or Body Mass Index.
Is Surgery The Best Solution?
If you’re looking for an effective way to get rid of fat under the breasts, surgery is the best solution. Liposuction is an excellent option for targeting stubborn pockets of fat anywhere on the body. You can have liposuction on the fat rolls under the breasts to get rid of them.
Liposuction removes excess fat and restores smooth contours. This surgery involves the surgeon making tiny incisions in the area under the breast. They pass a cannula through the incisions, break up the fat, and suction it out. The surgeon then sculpts the area to produce smoother, more contoured lines.
