Would smart lipo work for eliminating my back fat and skin rolls? (photos)

I'm turning 50 in a week and have been contemplating lipo for my bra fat/ back and got two consultations. I exercise a lot and have a lot of muscle but it's hiding. I know it's heredity I don't mind my little tummy pouch but maybe I should do that as well as the back fat and possibly flanks . 1st doctor said he has had good results with smart lipo for back/ bra area. 2nd doc want to do Abzug flanks and back but says I will still have some rolls-What can I expect- what areas should I do

Rolls and back fat

An examination would be required to determine whether you would be a good candidate for liposuction. Dr. Debra Atkins, who performs the body liposuction in our practice, would likely find you to be an excellent candidate for a variety of forms of liposuction or even non-invasive procedures such as CoolSculpting.

Thanks for the RealSelf question and photos. The "bra" back area is very difficult to treat and obtain reasonable results. I might consider CoolSculpting non invasive to ThermiSmooth Rf non invasive. Next the "tweener" minimally invasive ThermiTight Rf. Finally invasive SmartLipo Triplex... 

Great Smartlipo candidate

Thank you for posting a photo. It looks as if you would be a good candidate for Smartlipo to the mid-back. Smartlipo will remove unwanted fat deposits while is tightens the skin. You will start to notice a contour in your body as you go through the healing process. My suggestion is to consult with your surgeon to find out if this is the best option for you.

I would look at before and after pictures and reviews to determine who is the best surgeon for you. Do not concern yourself with the methods used, just the results obtained.
