VASER Liposuction of Bra Rolls
Stubborn fat deposits can negatively affect a person’s appearance and self-confidence. For women who suffer from bra rolls, this is especially true. These areas of excess fat connect and make it difficult to wear fitted tops. Many women describe that they cannot wear a bra, as it appears their breasts continue around to their back. In general, the bulge around the bra line develops due to the presence of fat deposits around the upper and mid back, the armpits, the sides of the torso, and the front of the torso where the chest and abdomen connect
There are several different variations of bra rolls. There is the upper bra rolls area extending from under the arm spreading down and back. The other type is the lower bra rolls that hang out under the bra. In both cases, unwanted fat appears to be squeezed by bra straps. This can be a source of self-consciousness for many women.
If you are self-conscious about the clothes you wear or afraid of your beach body and are finding it difficult to fix, VASER Lipo may be able to help. VASER liposuction for bra rolls is a minimally invasive, walk-in walk-out alternative to traditional liposuction, the treatment allows patients to sculpt their back and deliver toning in the area.
Liposuction has been the gold standard of treatment for this area, with the tumescent VASER Liposuction being the best option since the area really requires a lot of finesse. Traditional liposuction will occasionally leave the patient with loose skin, but with VASER this is rarely encountered. During the VASER procedure, bra rolls are treated under local anaesthesia using VASER ultrasound energy to first disrupt and emulsify the hardened fat deposits and then suction them out. VASER process heats the skin and typically, the skin in this area will shrink well after the liposuction leaving behind a flatter back. Liposuction of the bra rolls improves the way the bra sits on the sides and back and improves overall comfort. Sometimes the number on the bra size will be decreased by a size.
Bra rolls or back rolls are those annoying rolls of fat that stick out under the bra.
Suitable bra roll liposuction candidates have only a little amount of body fat that they want to eliminate. They are in good general health and do not have any health conditions that could increase surgery-related risks.
Post operative patients commonly experience healing reaction, soreness, bruising, and some fluid leakage after liposuction of the bra bulge area. These side effects are normal and will gradually dissipate over a few weeks.
The patient will need to take some time off work after their liposuction cosmetic surgery to recover from the procedure. Individuals with sedentary jobs may be able to resume work sooner than three days.

The smoother contour back will make it look like you have lost some weight. This improved look often leads to an improved self-confidence and serves as a strong motivator to encourage you to maintain your diet/exercise regimen, and to lose more weight. Improvements in body contour with exercise will be much easier after this stubborn layer of fat is removed with liposuction.
Using local anaesthetic and oral relaxant medications, the treatment involves injecting a tumescent fluid to separate fat from surrounding tissues which minimises disruption as well as subsequent swelling and bruising. After this, a VASER probe is inserted into the fat area emitting bursts of ultrasound energy to shake and break down fat cells. Unwanted fat is then gently suctioned out by aspiration cannula.
Results & Recovery
After the procedure the patient must wear a compression garment for one to two weeks. Mild discomfort and bruising may last up to two weeks and swelling may last for two weeks to four weeks. During the post operative recovery patients are advised to mobilise early and return to normal daily activity within a couple of days. In general the full effect of VASER liposuction gets better over-time and is seen four months after the procedure is performed.
