Tank topics, bathing suits, dresses are only a few among many reasons for getting rid of back fat this summer and year-round. Accumulating fat around the bra, which creates those bulging outlines, can ruin outfits and make body hugging shirts unsightly and unattractive. The back band of your bra should be tight enough to clasp and stay in place while providing support, but it should also provide comfort. You shouldn’t have to squeeze into your bra, and if so, seek a bra fit specialist to identify if you’re wearing the right size. However for some, bra-line fat can still bulge from around the edge even if you are wearing the right size. Wearing too loose of a bra is not a solution to avoiding bulges. The fat that accumulates along the torso can be exercise resistant, and even those with only a modest amount of fat can find themselves frustrated with bra-line fat. For those that are surgery averse, there are many non-invasive procedures that can achieve noticeable results.
Dr. Rokhsar provides his patients with several different lasers depending on his patient’s cosmetic goals. Because bra-line fat typically does not require a surgery, it can be significantly reduced without having to make an incision!
Liposonix uses a high intensity ultrasound therapy to target and destroy fat. This treatment is also effective in getting rid of fat that accumulates in the waist, abdomen, love handles and thighs.
The Zerona laser in another non-invasive option for those wishing to reduce fat in places such as the thighs, hips, waist, buttocks, abdomen, neck, arms and back. The laser liquefies fat by targeting cells and breaking them down just below the skin’s surface. The body then naturally disposes them as dead cells. As they are disposed, results are progressively seen months after the non-invasive procedure. Desired results are usually achieved after six to ten session.
CoolSculpting by Zeltiq uses a cooling method called cryolipolysis to target, freeze and then break down fat cells in the body. This laser is based on the research conducted by Harvard scientists, that fat is more susceptible to cold temperatures than other cells in the body. When affected the fat separates and dies just below the skin and then suspends inside the body and is naturally digested. After the cells are crystallized through a gentle cooling process, the fat progressively decreases with gradual results seen within four months.
