Liposuction: A Quick Remedy for "Bra Fat"


brafat 500.jpgFor some women, a favorite dress or perfect swimsuit can look great in all areas but one ... the armpit area, where a bulge of flesh sometimes sticks out. The technical term for this is an "axillary roll," but most of our patients refer to it as "bra fat."

This particular bulge can be frustrating because it's not very receptive to exercise and diet. Fortunately, liposuction can be quite successful in removing the bulge, and the surgery can often be performed in less than an hour.

In liposuction surgery, small incisions are made so that a thin, hollow tube can be inserted to suction out unwanted fat. There can be some temporary bruising or swelling afterward, but recovery is generally quick.

In addition to the "bra fat" area, liposuction can be used for body sculpting in many areas that are resistant to diet and exercise.

We have lots more information about liposuction on our website, including a video animation that may answers some of your questions. We also offer complimentary consultations for plastic surgery, so contact us if you'd like to meet with one of our physicians to see if liposuction is right for you.

Achieving the Elusive Thigh Gap

A slim inner-thigh, resulting in a coveted "thigh gap," is a feature many women would like to have. Rather than thighs that rub together (which can sometimes cause chafing), some women prefer a little bit of space between their inner thighs. 

Sometimes a thigh gap can be achieved through a healthy diet and targeted exercise. However, some fatty areas of the body are stubborn and harder to sculpt. Also, the width of your hips is a factor, so for some people diet and exercise won't be enough to achieve the desired result. If you fall into that category, thigh gap surgery is an option.

In thigh gap surgery, liposuction is used to remove unwanted fat, giving the area a new shape. Incisions are small, and recovery is generally quick. With limited downtime, you can have leaner thighs that look better in swimsuits and workout clothes, and certainly feel better in skirts and dresses (no more chafing!). You can read more about liposuction on our website, and then get in touch with us for a consultation to see if thigh gap surgery is right for you.

Meanwhile, there are exercises you can do at home to help strengthen and shape your inner-thigh area. As with any exercise program, if you have underlying health issues, be sure to check with your doctor before you begin. You can search for inner-thigh exercises online, like this one at
