Just under the area where the front bra strap crosses the collar bone, towards the arm pit – a troublesome, little, puffy area of bulging fat.  Instead of curving in, the fat puffs this “Bra-Strap Line” area out, against the strap.  This creates a bulge where it should be nice and flat and smooth; flowing into the top of the breast.  A light touch with a little liposuction here by Dr. Back, and it’s gone!

The Consultation

You will have a private, in-depth consultation with Dr. Back where he will review with you everything you want and need to know.  After an examination, together you will discuss your goals and his recommendations.  All the details of the procedure will be reviewed and you will also have ample time for questions.  Typical “before & after” photos as examples are on hand as a part of this process.

The Procedure

All modern liposuction is performed utilizing special local anesthetic (called the “tumescent technique”).  Depending on the extent of the problem and other factors, general anesthesia might also be used.  Small nicks are made in inconspicuous, hidden spots and sculpting instruments (called “cannula”) are used which allow Dr. Back to simultaneously remove fat and reshape the areas.  The cannulas come in a variety of types and sizes, but are usually smaller than the diameter of a pen.  As the new body shape begins to appear, Dr. Back will compare one side to the other for symmetry and refine and recontour the areas further until done.  There are many special forms of liposuction, such as Smart Lipo Laser Liposuction and Vaser/Ultrasonic Liposuction which Dr. Back also uses – he’ll address as to whether these might be appropriate for you.

The Recovery

The hidden, small nicks usually heal invisibly within days.  Band-aids are the only “dressing” needed for these after surgery.  Most patients will wear a postoperative garment for 3-4 weeks to help guide the skin into its proper retracted contours and to minimize swelling and bruising.  Mild restrictions only and you should be able to see a difference within a week, although the results will generally keep improving for many weeks after your procedure.
