The armpit and bra line are two of the most common areas where people retain stubborn fat that does not respond to diet or exercise. Armpit and bra line fat reduction use liposuction to remove localized fat deposits in these areas for a slimmer, more contoured look.
Is Armpit & Bra Line Fat Reduction right for you ?
Armpit and bra line fat reduction is an excellent procedure for patients in good overall health who maintain a healthy lifestyle with stubborn fat deposits in these areas. It is vital for patients to remember that liposuction cannot be used as a means for substantial weight loss. Instead, it removes excess fat in localized areas after the patient has attempted other traditional weight loss methods.
During your initial consultation, your surgeon will provide a comprehensive exam and discuss your goals to understand if this procedure is correct for you.
Removal of fat rolls or bulges
Improved muscle tone
A well-defined and toned upper body and midsection
A more balanced body frame to enhance weight loss results
A patient care concierge will guide you through the entire consultation process, which can be attended in person or virtually. During the consultation, your surgeon will learn about your goals, answer any questions, and perform an examination to create a personalized surgical plan. You will then be matched with a surgical coordinator who will walk you through each step of the preoperative process.
Your surgeon will create several tiny incisions in the area, and a fine cannula is then inserted to gently suction out the fat. Very few, if any, stitches are needed after liposuction since the incisions are small enough to heal on their own.
Your surgeon will use the revolutionary S.A.F.E liposuction technique, which stands for separation, aspiration, and fat equalization. The separation phase occurs when the vibrating cannula loosens and separates the fat cells from the rest of the tissue. Aspiration refers to the removal of fat cells from the body using suction incorporated into the cannula. The fat equalization phase requires the surgeon to leave a thin layer of fat just underneath the dermis to create a smoother contour and reduce the risk of dimpling on the skin's outer surface.
Liposuction's most common side effects include mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated area. Compression garments or elastic bandages may be used to help reduce these symptoms while healing takes place. Results are typically long-lasting as long as a healthy and active lifestyle is maintained.
Your surgeon will provide specific instructions for optimal post-operative care, including an advanced scar management protocol after the initial healing period. Your surgical team is always available and will closely monitor your recovery in the weeks and months following surgery.
