Liposuction of Back and Waist
Liposuction or Liposculpture surgery is performed to remove unwanted localized deposits of fat cells from the body. A suction tube is inserted through a tiny incision, usually in inconspicuous areas. Tumescent Liposuction is the injection of a specialized composite fluid into a specific area which sometimes helps to reduce the bleeding and facilitate the liposuction.
Liposuction of the back and waist are usually performed in conjunction with liposuction of the abdomen as well as other areas. Fatty deposits (bulges) on the back respond well to liposculpture in patients of all ages, but the best results are achieved on patients 45 years of age and younger, due to their increased skin elasticity. Older patients also often achieve good results, depending on their skin’s elasticity and the areas to be liposuctioned. Dr. Blau has found that the back area is one of the best areas for liposuction. The back liposuction pictures on this page show improved contours of the back, even in some obese patients. In general, patients are quite pleased with the results of back liposuction. Of course, each individual is different and should consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who is experienced with back liposuction surgery for a personalized assessment.
The best candidates for Tumescent Liposuction Surgery are people with localized fat accumulation who have been unable to reduce these areas through diet and exercise.
Liposuction is not a cure for obesity. Rather, it is an effective procedure for eliminating "that bulge."
As with all cosmetic surgery, results will be rewarding if expectations are realistic. As with any surgery, there are some risks which your doctor will discuss with you.
The following liposuction of the back and waist before-and-after photos will give you a sense of the results Dr. Blau has achieved in liposculpture surgery. However, each patient is unique and previous results are not a guarantee for individual outcomes.
