Considering back liposuction. Have any of you had lipo? With whom?

First off the plastics board is pretty inactive so I'm posting here and I want surgeon recommendations from the GTA.

My daughter once asked me why I have breasts on my back. True story. Genetically, I have lumps on my back, because that's where fat tends to deposit. I've lost 120 lbs and I'm not active, nor do I lift weights, but this is something that I feel needs to be remedied. At first, I was thinking of having a bra line lift, but after seeing the scar line in pics online, I opted against it. I know liposuction won't give me the same results as a bra line lift, but I'm hoping it will make my back breasts better. It looks awful in clothes, too. Has anyone had liposuction on their back? How about elsewhere? Who did you get it done by and what was the cost?

Thanks!

Hi Lucille,

Where did you have your surgery? I'm a member of a FB Group that is all about WLS patients from St. Joseph's in Hamilton. It's very active and lots of talk about Plastics after WLS with a lot of recommendations.

Perhaps, depending on where you had your surgery there would be a similar FB group that you could join that could help you out.

I'm planning on plastic surgery next year for skin removal, tummy tuck and some liposuction. I've heard about a Dr. Harris in Burlington who specializes in WLS patients and then someone in Welland. There's also a female Doctor in Scarborough that a lot of people talk about.

Typically they don't want to do any plastics until a year after you've hit goal so your body has time to settle and you are maintaining. I don't know about liposuction though.

Hope this gives you a direction to try and get answers.

I've had lipo to thighs, tummy, arms, back. I'm a bruiser so I had lots of pretty colours. Lipo will work but it does leave the skin. Last lipo I had BBL with the fat spun down and injected into my butt. I also had completion of a posterior lift which also helped with excess skin. Had it done a Usculpt. Cost varies depending on areas, local or anaesthetic. Best is to go for a consult. Who ever you choose make sure they work with weight loss patients

Thank you, Leslie. Does lipo make the shape of your body weird? Have you had any regain since lipo? If so, where did the fat go once you had all these fat cells removed?

No it does not make it weird. Weight has been stable but if gain weight the remaining fat cells can get larger. took about 6 months before all the swelling went down but I had a lot of lipo. Enough fat once spun down to do BBL of 1500 cc to each butt.

lol. I love the frank response. I have a completely deflated butt. BBL doesn't sound like a bad idea right now.

No Lipo,

But Usculpt in Vaughn does a lot of bariatric patients. they did my lower body lift and breasts and the care and aftercare are fantastic.

they don't charge for a consult. I have photos in my profile if you want to see my results.
