Upper back fat

SOmetimes upper back rolls can be treated successfully with liposuction. Sometimes excisional procedures may be better.  An exam would help to determine this for you.

Liposuction after a tummy tuck

You can certainly have liposuction after a tummy tuck.  Both areas that you are concerned about can do very well with liposuction.  As far as the type of liposuction to use, choose a PS you trust and allow him to decide the liposuction technique of choice. 

The results of liposuction are dependent on the surgeon, not the machine!
