Back fat can be extremely stubborn and difficult to minimize in both women and men. In women, this area is especially accentuated because of the constriction created while wearing a bra, causing “bra bulge”. In men, extra back fat can contribute to looking top-heavy thereby blurring the sculpted look of the frame. Though liposuction procedures have long been used to treat fatty areas of the body, the less-invasive technique of Vaser Hi Def Liposuction can remove fat from specific areas of the back.
Vaser Hi Def back liposuction allows Dr. Shapiro, who is the only surgeon in Arizona who has been trained in this technique, to target areas of fat that detract from a patient’s physique. Beginning with a simple injection of a numbing agent that constricts local blood vessels and slightly swells the area to promote fat separation, a small cannula removes the extra fat. Because the fat has been liquefied in the body through this technology, crucial tissues such as nerves and blood vessels are left unharmed.
Vaser Hi Def Liposuction of the back may be performed in conjunction with fat removal from other areas of the body such as the abdomen or thighs. Often, more than one area of the body collects excess fatty deposits that can be targeted with this type of surgery. Hi Def Lipo is not as invasive a procedure as traditional liposuction, but still removes pounds of unwanted fat from the body both safely and effectively.
