Unwanted body fat can adversely impact an individual’s appearance and self-confidence. This is particularly true for women who have a bra line bulge. The undesirable fat appears to be squeezed by the bra straps. This can be a major cause of self-consciousness.
An experienced surgeon will consider how liposuction body contouring plastic surgery can be used to address bra bulge, enabling women to look their best in the process.
The bulge around the bra line usually develops because of the accumulation of undesirable fat around the mid and upper back, the sides of the torso, around the armpits, and in front of the torso where the chest and abdomen meet.
Spot reduction is a myth, and fat around the back and torso is particularly challenging to remove through diet and exercise alone. But liposuction offers an effective solution to eliminating undesirable fatty deposits.
Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides liposuction body contouring to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and surrounding locations.
Ideal liposuction candidates have only slight excess body fat that they would like to get rid of. They are in good overall health and do not have any health conditions that would cause liposuction to pose a safety risk for them.
Liposuction is only designed to remove a relatively small amount of body fat. A surgeon may recommend that the patient follow a balanced diet and exercise plan for a few months before the procedure to reduce weight and body fat in a natural way. This can improve the results and longevity of the surgery.
To liposuction around the bra bulge region, the cosmetic surgeon will use a cannula to remove undesirable fatty pockets along the back and torso. This procedure mainly focuses on the region between the hips and the armpits, developing a more appealing torso in the process.
In addition, the surgeon may also treat the bulge at the top of the abdomen, if required. They will ensure that the bulging around the bra straps is less prominent by contouring the fat in this region.
Patients typically experience inflammation, bruising, soreness, and some fluid leakage after liposuction of the bra bulge area. These side-effects are normal and usually resolve with adequate rest and close attention to the post-surgical instructions.
The patient will need to take leave from their workplace for a few days after their liposuction plastic surgery procedure to recover. People with sedentary jobs will be able to resume 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 seem so constricted and pushed out. This allows the patient to appear sleeker and slimmer.
After the liposuction procedure, there is very slight visible scarring due to the small size of the cannula. The outcomes of liposuction can last for years to come with a balanced diet and regular exercise plan.
Plastic surgeons at VIPS and MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and nearby areas for liposuction body sculpting.
