Treating back fat
Your options are:
1). Noninvasive fat reduction using techniques like cool sculpting.
This will not give you any skin tightening.
2). Liposuction to reduce the amount of fat that you have on your back. This will have minimal impact on skin tightening
3). Slimlipo out the back will reduce fat and also tighten a moderate degree of skin
4). Upper back lift with liposuction. This will give you the greatest amount of fat reduction and skin type. Incision line is typically hidden in the bra area. The excess skin is removed and your back becomes much flatter has a result. This however is the procedure with the greatest amount of downtime and visible scarring.
Back Roll Correction
To correct this, the skin needs to be pulled down and tightened, and some of the excess fat can also be removed.
Fat removal by liposuction alone offers a simple surgery with less downtime, but nowhere near as satisfactory a result.
