St. Louis Upper Back Liposuction

Upper Back Liposuction

There are several areas that may be addressed with liposuction on the upper back, including:

  • Infra-Scapular Fat – This area is located on the mid – to upper back area along the bra-line. It can make wearing a bra especially uncomfortable to wear, and even more embarrassing to wear form-fitting clothing.
  • Buffalo Hump – as the term suggests, this is right on the upper back, below the shoulders and neck. It can make patients appear to have bad posture, and suffer from low self-confidence and other negative feeling about self-image.
  • Posterior Axillary Fat –This area is the back of the armpit, which usually sags with fat as we age.
  • Flanks or Posterior Waist Fat – rolls of fat can rest right above the hip, and climb all the way up to the upper back. These are otherwise known as back handles, and dieting and exercise won’t always trim the fat.

Get permanent and dramatic results from upper back liposuction. Dr. Wright is an expert at evaluating patients and addressing their concerns. The areas listed above are often combined with other areas to achieve an attractive silhouette. We do what it takes to achieve optimal results without sacrificing safety.

Who is a Good Candidate for Upper Back Liposuction?

Just about everyone can undergo liposuction on their upper back.

Older women generally are more susceptible to extra fat in the upper back area. Excess fat in this area is generally not responsive to diet and exercise, so if you are struggling with fat in this area, liposuction on your upper back is a great solution.

Back Liposuction: Before and After

What to Expect

Using only local tumescent anesthesia, tiny punctures (the size of a ballpoint pen tip) are made into the subcutaneous fat where micro-cannulas are inserted to suction out the fat cells. This procedure removes fat permanently leaving a very sculpted and toned appearance in the procedure area.

Patient safety and comfort is our top priority during the entire procedure. Since patients are awake, Dr. Wright is able to have them change positions ensuring symmetry and optimal results. Our procedures are performed at our office in a surgical suite. Patients are able to resume regular daily activity after only a day or two.
