Back Fat

Back fat, often referred to as ‘bra bulge’ on women, can plague even the fittest of people.  Non-invasive treatments can be utilized to reduce excess fat on the upper back, without pain or downtime.   The best treatments to get rid of back fat are Venus Concept, TruSculpt, and Zeltiq CoolSculpting. Venus Concept is a dual-mechanism treatment, which uses both radiofrequency energy and magnetic pulses to both get rid of excess fat in the treated area and tighten the overlying skin.  After a short series of treatments, significant reduction of back fat can be appreciated. TruSculpt uses radiofrequency energy to break down fat deep below the skin.  TruSculpt is one of the best treatments for upper back fat, because it sculpts and contours the body, while reducing fat in this area.  Additionally, the TruSculpt treatment also improves the appearance of overlying skin, which results in tightening and contouring of the area.  Only one or two TruSculpt treatments are necessary for significant reduction of back fat. Zeltiq CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis, a method of freezing the fat cells at the treated area.  The affected fat cells are then flushed from the site by the body’s own immune system; this process results in a 20% reduction of fat cells at the treated area.  The Zeltiq CoolSculpting applicator is not adjustable, meaning that (unlike TruSculpt and Venus Concept) not every patient can undergo Zeltiq CoolSculpting treatment for back fat.  During your initial consultation, we will determine if you are an appropriate candidate for Zeltiq CoolSculpting Venus Concept, TruSculpt, and Zeltiq CoolSculpting treatments for back fat are all performed at the Body Treatment Center in New York City.
