Unwanted body fat can adversely impact an individual’s appearance and self-confidence. This is particularly true for people who experience a bra line bulge.
Undesirable fat appears to be squeezed by the bra strap. This can be a major source of self-consciousness for some women.
An experienced surgeon will consider how liposuction body contouring cosmetic surgery can be used to address bra bulge allowing women to look their best in the process.
Generally, the fat around the bra bulge occurs due to unwanted fatty deposits around the mid and upper back, around the armpits, the sides of the torso, and the front of the torso where the chest and abdomen connects.
Spot reduction is a myth and this fat around the back and torso is particularly challenging to reduce through diet and exercise alone. Thankfully, liposuction provides patients with a definitive solution to eliminate undesirable fatty deposits.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Paul McCluskey provides liposuction for the bra strap area to patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Georgia, and surrounding locations.
Ideal liposuction candidates have only a slight amount of body fat that they would like to reduce. They are in good overall health and do not have any medical conditions that could create potential complications during or after liposuction surgery.
Liposuction is designed to remove a relatively small amount of body fat. A surgeon may ask the patient to follow a balanced diet and regular exercise regimen for a few months prior to the surgery to lose weight and body fat in a natural way. This can improve the longevity of the cosmetic surgery results.
In liposuction of the bra bulge area, the cosmetic surgeon will use a cannula to remove undesirable fatty pockets along the back and torso. The procedure mainly focuses on the region between the hips and armpits to develop a more appealing torso in the process.
If necessary, the surgeon may also remove fat from the top of the abdomen area. They will ensure that the bulging around the bra straps is much less prominent by contouring the fat in the region.
Patients typically experience swelling, soreness, bruising, and some fluid leakage after liposuction of the bra bulge area. These side-effects are normal and usually subside with adequate rest and close attention to post-op instructions.
After liposuction, the patient will need to take leave from their workplace for some time to heal from the procedures. People with more sedentary jobs may be able to return to work sooner.
Women do not have to worry about that unappealing bra bulge any longer with liposuction targeted to the upper torso and sides. The skin around the bra straps will not look so compressed and protuberant. This allows the patient to appear sleeker and more toned.
As the cannula is tiny, there is very slight visible scarring after this procedure. Liposuction outcomes can last for years to come if the patient follows a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet and regular exercise regimen.
