Lipo on back?

Liposuction of the back
Unfortunately, your picture didn't come through with your question. Liposuction for removal of fat accumulation on the back is a very successful technique, in general. Please see a board-certified dermatologic surgeon who performs liposuction for an evaluation.
Good luck and best wishes. The video above may provide some helpful information for you.

Lipo on back?
Unfortunately your photograph did not transmit in a way that it can be seen, but in general dicrete fat deposits of the back can be liposuctioned. Sometime those rolls are the result of loose skin, in which case liposuction is not as likely to be successful. Some of the non-surgical fat reduction technologies like CoolsSculpt and SculpSure have also been very successful when used for the right patient. I suggest a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with a particular interest in body contouring and who can offer you both surgical and non-surgical options to achieve your desired outcome.
The treatment of back bra rolls
Back bra rolls can respond well to liposuction depending on a few variables. The area it's always a combination of skin laxity and excess fat. The skin on the back it's in a loose position when the arm is it down. By definition it needs to be in order to have enough laxative to allow for the arm to be erased and body stretched. There are skin the attachments in various places on the body. The mid back is one of them. This means that when the arm goes from an opposition to a down position the skin will drop with it up to the point of the skin attachments and that's where the roll is formed. Skin creases and skin rolls are often predictable and anatomically distinct based on these various anatomic skin attachments. Patients who have relatively tight skin and fix layers of subcutaneous fat should expect impressive results. On the other hand patients with excess of loose skin and fin layers of subcutaneous fat will not have impressive results and maybe disappointed with the procedure. And in person examination in conjunction with an experienced surgeon can help easily differentiate who should be excited about results from liposuction and who may need more drastic intervention such as a lift or skin resection. Consider reposting your pictures or better yet have a few in person consultations with local board-certified plastic surgeon's. Best, Mats Hagstrom M.D.
