2 Minute Read:
Whenever summer comes around, many women are thrilled to pull out their tank tops, bikinis, and form-fitting clothing. However, if you have problems with bra fat, you may feel insecure every time you want to show off your body. Feeling comfortable in a bra or a bikini is important for every woman’s confidence. That is why more and more women are turning to bra fat removal surgery.
What Is Bra Fat Removal Surgery?
Bra fat removal surgery looks to remove the excess fat that collects and shows whenever you wear a bra or a bikini. This fat typically bunches underneath the bra straps, below the bra, or in the pocket around the armpit, which is known as “bra bulge.” These collections can make a person look like they have rolls and make women feel insecure in tops or bikinis.
Will Exercise Work Instead?
While exercise can work for some parts of the body, it is necessary to remember that you cannot “spot focus” when working out. When your body loses weight, it can come off from anywhere on your body, sometimes achieving different results than you wanted. For example, many women complain about retaining fat in their problem areas and losing weight somewhere they would prefer to keep it, such as their breasts.
What Are the Benefits of Bra Fat Removal Surgery?
If bra fat is an issue for you, surgery is a guaranteed solution. Even removing a small amount of fat can have a significant effect on the body”s contouring.
What Does Bra Fat Removal Surgery Look Like?
The most effective way to remove excess “bra fat” is with liposuction. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) defines liposuction as a process that targets specific areas to remove unwanted fat and reshape and contour the body.
There are varying types of liposuction procedures, but they all follow similar patterns. A patient is put under local or general anesthesia. The plastic surgeon will then remove the excess fat through a cannula (a hollow tube attached to a suctioning device). How long your surgery will take will depend on how much fat you are removing. The recovery process will also vary from patient to patient, but most people will experience mild discomfort and will need one to two weeks before they can get back to work and day-to-day activities.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Liposuction results are generally long lasting as long as you maintain your weight after the procedure. It is truly a fresh start for your body and your self-esteem!
