Absolutely! Not only can you get rid of that back fat, you will be able to have that skin tightened as well! Not to mention very little down time because its done right here in our office with a local anesthetic.

Smart Lipos on the Back

Yes, Smart Liposuction can be performed on the back and will help tighten loose skin marginally better than straight forward liposuction.

SmartLipo Can Work

SmartLipo can be used for superficial and deep areas on the back and the flanks.  The procedure can be combined with SmartLipo triplex skin tightening and fat removal.

Smart Lipo can be performed on the back

Smart Lipo and liposuction in general can be performed on the back, if you are a candidate based on your exam.  Common areas are the flanks and hips (the "muffin top"), the bra fat rolls, and the middle back fat in between.  Good luck! 


Yes. Smart lipo can be done almost anywhere. Usually the flanks are the most often treated portion of the back and then  the upper back to remove fat from the ares under a bra strap and  around to the front as much as possible  .

Smart Lipo for the back

Without a physical exam or picture, it is difficult to tell if you are a candidate for liposuction.  With that being said, if you are a candidate for liposuction, then Smart Lipo can be done on the back, as well as traditional liposuction.  Because of the fibrous nature of the back tissue, the SmartLipo Triplex is excellent for this area as it can pass through the tissue and break up the fat much more easily than traditional liposuction.
