Struggling to get your bra on usually happens at the worst time. From rushing to work, getting ready for a party or throwing on clothes before you walk the dog. If it happens once or twice, most of us don’t give it a second thought. But if struggling to fit into your bra becomes a daily occurrence, there’s a chance you don’t just need a new bra. While a change in body shape is typical for women, if this change comes with fatty overhang at your bra line and upper back, it can be upsetting. “Bra bulge”, “Bra Fat” and “Bra Fat Overhang” refer to the extra fat that overhangs your bra line. Unlike weight gain in your abdominal or thigh region, back fat often goes unnoticed until it begins to overhang the bra line. Not only is bra fat overhang uncomfortable, it can impact on the way your clothes hang. Fortunately, there’s a solution to bra fat overhang with minimally invasive Vaser Liposuction.
What causes bra fat overhang?
All humans are born with a predetermined number of fat tissue or adipose cells, if they expand and the fat tissue inflates. A combination of dietary habits genetics and muscle atrophy usually determine if you’re prone to bra fat overhang and back veranda fat. Unfortunately, one of the hardest places lose body fat is in the area around your bra line. Despite having a strict diet and exercise regime, reducing bra fat is even more challenging because of the fibrous nature of the tissue. In some cases, targeting the muscles in your back at the gym can help. But if the fat is already there, a more effective solution is Vaser Liposuction.
How Vaser Liposuction treats bra fat overhang
Vaser Liposuction uses ultrasound high-frequency to break down fat cells. Not only is it an effective body sculpting treatment but it helps improve the appearance of your skin by tightening it. As one of our preferred methods to remove stubborn back fat, Vaser Liposuction separates your excess fat cells from the fibrous back tissues. Using gentle suction, our Surgeons can create a more desirable shaped back.
At your consultation at Cosmos Clinics, the Surgeon will determine whether you’re an ideal candidate for Vaser Liposuction. If you’re fit and healthy and have tried to reduce your bra fat overhang through exercise and diet, Vaser Liposuction is ideal because it targets stubborn areas of fat. It’s not ideal if you’re looking for an extreme weight loss solution because there’s a limit to how much of your fat can be removed during this procedure.
Vaser Liposuction is a day surgery procedure where you’ll have twilight sedation. Unlike traditional liposuction, Vaser Liposuction allows more removal of fat deposits. After the procedure, you’ll be wearing compression garments which assist in the healing process, skin retraction and to minimise swelling. With a downtime between 2-7 days, most patients see the results of this bra fat overhang treatment at 6 weeks.
If minimally invasive Vaser Liposuction surgery isn’t appealing, we also offer CoolSculpting. This non-surgical bra fat overhang treatment is non-invasive and permanently removes unwanted fat cells. As an FDA-approved treatment, CoolSculpting has been clinically-proven to shrink areas of excess fat and bulges without downtime. The Cosmos Clinic has delivered CoolSculpting treatment for over 10 years.
