Liposuction of back rolls

Liposuction of the back rolls or bra rolls is perfectly fine from under the breast as long as the surgeon feels that she has adequate access to the area.

Liposuction of chest

It seems quite reasonable to use the breast incision to do the lateral chest liposuction although often we try to come at an area from two different directions unless it is quite limited.
