VelaShape for Back Fat Removal

by Marisa Amorasak

VelaShape for Back Fat Removal

The back is one of the sexiest parts of the body—according to Justin Timberlake, anyways. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the hardest areas to tone up. Diet and exercise is the natural suggestion for any type of weight loss, and should always be the first resort. But once you’ve tried every gym routine and every diet, there’s a new solution to back fat that plastic surgeons are raving about. VelaShape™, the same treatment that is used to smooth cellulite and decrease inches on the thighs and abdomen, is now a top choice for treating back fat. VelaShape is a favorite of Kim Kardashian, Gretchen Rossi, and other people who have successfully reduced their stubborn back fat.

The Back Fat Breakdown

The back accumulates fat slowly and steadily, just like the fat that builds up on the abdomen and buttocks. In fact, back fat is made of the very same stuff as these areas: subcutaneous and visceral fat. This type of fat is largely affected by a person’s diet. If you’re troubled by bra strap overhang or back bulges, switching to a low-carbohydrate and low-fat diet may give you some improvement. Exercise matters too—spot treating back fat doesn’t work very well. Instead, try switching up your regular routine with full body cardio like swimming or running, which burns fat from all over the body.

Back Fat and Plastic Surgery

Up until recently, the plastic surgeon’s go-to solution to stubborn back fat and flanks (the fat below the ribs and above the hip) was liposuction. And liposuction does work well on these areas by vacuuming out all of those extra fat cells. However, many patients don’t consider liposuction an option due to the risks, recovery time, pain, and ethical issues associated with plastic surgery and liposuction. Fortunately, the non-surgical plastic surgery industry has grown tremendously over the last decade. There are now seriously effective aesthetic treatments for a range of problems, including back fat.

VelaShape and Back Fat

VelaShape is a highly advanced treatment that involves no scalpels, incisions, needles, or anesthesia. Instead, VelaShape uses a combination of radiofrequency energy, infrared light, vacuum suction, and mechanical massage. VelaShape’s manufacturers call this technology elos. The theory behind elos is that the energy from the radiofrequencies and infrared light increase the metabolism of the fat cells, which makes the cells either burn off completely or shrink in size. Meanwhile, the physical components of VelaShape help smooth out the uneven fat to decrease the appearance of cellulite.

Most experts recommend 4-6 sessions of VelaShape in order to see full results. Each session lasts about 30 minutes. There is no recovery time associated with VelaShape—you can return to your normal activities immediately after the treatment. Side effects are quite mild, and include redness and soreness at the treatment site for a few hours. The overall results of VelaShape for back fat will vary from patient to patient, but VelaShape reports that most people see about a one inch loss, with the average loss ranging from 0.5 to 3 inches. It also helps firm and tone back fat, making it appear slimmer.
