Talking Bra Strap ‘Back Fat’ Region with Dr Murray

Watch Dr Murray from Absolute Cosmetic Medicine discuss the Bra Strap ‘Back Fat’ region and what you can do about it.


Hi, Dr Murray here again.

Just talking about the bra strap or back fat region.

As I mentioned before it’s an area that people notice when they’ve lost weight or had lipo and they didn’t get it done and they say I missed this spot and I’ve always hated it but I didn’t think you could do anything about it. We have the Vaser Pro lipo machine which is one of the latest and strongest lipo machines you can get and it’s fantastic for this area because the fat is extremely tough to remove. It becomes very fibrous for two reasons. One – that’s what the back fat is, it’s a fibrous sort or fat. But also from friction from bra straps it seems to get very tough.

We make a small nick in the skin. It’s all done under sedation. Fill the area up with fluid. This fluid is tumescent fluid. This makes the area numb, makes it bloodless and dislodges the fat with normal saline. Then we put the Vaser Pro probe in which liquifies the fat. This is done with ultrasound. Then we pop a small cannula in to suck the fat out. Afterwards you will be numb and the next day you will have about 2/10 pain. Usual aftercare for most lipo and that’s using a garment to put pressure on the area to keep it flat and mould it the right way so you don’t get buckling of the skin.

You have to be realistic though the results are variable. It is a tough area and it can take up to 12 months for full results in some people and as quick as a month for some lucky people. It’s a great area to do and a lot of people to forget to do it when they’re going their tummy or their waist and they come back to do it later.

Don’t hesitate to book a consultation with one of my nurses and they’ll go through all of this with you. Don’t forget there are a couple of pictures on the website that show good average treatments of back fat.

Take care. For any further information please don’t hesitate to contact us at Absolute Cosmetic Medicine on (08) 9389 9099 or alternatively, visit our Vaser Pro Lipo page for more info – we are always here to help you.
