Bra roll lipo versus full back?

If you get upper and lower back lipo doesnt that also cover that bra roll or is that a separate spot? It seems odd to pay for full back + bra line if that technically is part of the back right? I want the best results but im a bit confused

Far more important than deciding if liposuction or a BBL is for you is the skill and experience of your plastic surgeon. Choose your surgeon rather than the technique and let him explain why one technique may be better than another and if you need a tummy tuck. Many board certified plastic surgeons provide a free first time consult and you should take advantage of that! See the below link on some suggestions on finding the most qualified Plastic Surgeon for you!

Each practitioner delineates a patient's anatomy slightly differently. This is especially true of "bra bulge" which generally encompasses the sides as well as the back. Just be clear in your consult about what you want and be sure to use an expert.  VASER HI DEF body contouring treats this are very well.  Best, Dr. Emer

Is the bra roll treated as part of the procedure during upper and lower back liposuction?

The "bra roll" is located along the posterior and lateral back region. Therefore when performing liposuction of the upper and lower back, the bra roll is inherently treated also as part of the same procedure. It would not be typical to to be charged separately for the "bra roll". Best of Luck.

Liposuction - is the bra roll the back fat?

Thank you for asking about your liposuction.

  • It is confusing because these are not technical terms.
  • However the bra roll tends to be fat at the side of the chest that can go around to the back.
  • But the fat on the mid and upper back can be separate from the bra roll.
  • Ask your plastic surgeon to show you with a marking pen exactly what areas will be treated and how they are charged.

Thank you for your question. In our practice that is covered. Different plastic surgeons make prices differently in their practice I like using ultrasonic assisted liposuction with the SAFE technique. These techniques increase the amount of fat that you can remove over traditional techniques. In addition you get a smoother result. The fat comes out like a banana smoothie (I.e. Liquid yellow with very little blood). For more information please watch the enclosed video and I hope you find this information useful
