The ‘bra fold’ or 'love handles' are all names given to overhanging skin that can develop on various back areas which are often resistant to exercise and diet. This can make many people feel self-conscious, which is why ICCM offers a simple and safe upper and lower back liposuction procedure that will firm and tone the area to restore your confidence.
Gaining weight causes the fat cells in your body to increase in size. If you lose that weight, the fat cell remains but decreases in size. The lower or upper back liposuction procedure works to physically remove the fat cells for good, contouring pockets of fat around your body to create a more desirable physique.
What is involved with upper or lower back lipo?
At ICCM, our range of liposuction cosmetic medical procedures are one of the most requested by patients looking to sculpt and tone their body shape. Our particular form of treatment is called excess fat tumescent liposculpture, a surgical technique that will permanently remove these stubborn excess fat deposits in the upper and lower areas of the back.
The reason why our particular offering is such a popular alternative to traditional liposuction is due to its less invasive nature. With no requirement for general anaesthetic, a local anaesthesia is injected into the fat for a comfortable removal process with less required downtime.
What are the benefits of tumescent liposculpture?
A less invasive cosmetic procedure means you can be back to your normal routine much quicker. If you are bothered by stubborn fat on your back, or it makes you feel uncomfortable in clothing or a swimsuit, this procedure will target and remove the areas of bother with minimal downtime and minimal bruising.
This form of liposuction only requires a small incision site but still offers a precise fat-removing method with the following benefits:
- A small cannula is used which lowers the risk of removing too much fat, giving the surgeon more control
- The small incision site minimises the chances of scarring and provides lower recovery times
- We will only use a local anaesthetic which contributes to a lower recovery time
- This format encourages increased skin tightening and contraction as it stimulates collagen, lowering the risk of loose skin post-procedure

Are the results permanent?
Unfortunately, not much can be done to stop the ageing process which is why no procedure that slows it down can be classed as permanent. Your threads will dissipate over time and can be re-done quite easily thanks to the low-risk nature of the procedure.
What does the lower thread lift cost?
The cost of the lower thread lift starts from $1800 or $30 per week. The first step in determining if the lower thread lift is the right procedure for your cosmetic goals is a consultation. During this meeting, we will be able to offer exact pricing for you. This is necessary as different patients require different levels of work, which ultimately affects the price.

How long will my expected recovery be?
One of the main benefits of our liposuction procedure is the fast recovery times, with patients only needing to expect some swelling and bruising afterwards. The results of your treatment and the new look of your back will be evident when the swelling goes down within a few weeks of your procedure.
If needed, you may wish to take a week off work and it is important that you avoid strenuous exercise for roughly three weeks while your body heals. A compression garment may also be provided to aid recovery. Our experienced team will inform you of any relevant lifestyle changes that may assist in your recovery.
