This 37 year old, 174 lb woman initially came to board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Francesco Campanile because, she was unhappy with her back and flanks. Sometimes, certain fat deposits will not dissipate regardless of how much an individual may diet or exercise. This can be frustrating and it often causes individuals to feel self-conscious.
After discussing possible options for this patient, Dr. Campanile recommended liposuction. Typically, liposuction of the back and flanks has a very high success rate even though such a large area is addressed. This is because the skin on the back is typically thicker than other areas of the body and therefore, more elastic and has more recoil. Here, Dr. Campanile was very careful to sculpt this area into an elegant hourglass shape.
This patient is shown here approximately 3 months after surgery. She is very happy with her results and feels confident in the appearance of her back and flanks.
