Surgical Cases Related to Back Liposuction

Back liposuction addresses "love-handles"

The back, especially in the female, tends to have pads of expanded fatty areas, not a diffuse thickening of the tissues as will most males. These areas are: infra scapular; posterior axillary; posterior waist; lumbo-sacral; and the buffalo hump at the upper central spine.

Liposuction of these pads will improve the general appearance of the back, the greatest benefit is in the patient who is otherwise reasonably slender save for the padded areas. Liposuction only removes the fat, it does not tighten the skin, and where there are very large deposits liposuction alone may not suffice.
