Whether you have heard it referred to as bra bulge, bra overhang or back bulge, in all these cases, excess fat is squeezed together and convenes in areas around the bra or between the bra and the armpit. This is now an issue that many women can treat thanks to CoolAdvantage Petite or CoolCurve applicators, especially in the summer months, where bra bulge becomes bikini bulge on vacation.
Unfortunately, even with a healthy fitness regime, some fat areas can be resilient and stubborn to reduce through just diet and exercise alone, and that is why many people consider non-invasive cosmetic treatments to give them a helping hand, when traditional ways to lose excess fat has failed.
One question that is raised about back fat and bra bulge is what is the best non-invasive treatment available to treat this condition? The Internet can be a great educator, but unfortunately there can be a lot of information on it that can be misleading and confusing, so it is no wonder when it comes to dermatology practices, the best course of action is to seek the advice of a trusted professional such as NYC based cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Michele Green.
Is Kybella an option for Fat Reduction?
For example, we’re often asked about the use of Kybella for back fat and bra bulge issues, because it is a treatment that has been suggested online in many places. This is a great treatment for reducing the appearance of a double chin and it might on the surface seem appropriate for treating other areas of fat around the body, but it is important to note, that Kybella is not FDA approved to treat other areas, such as armpit fat or bra bulge, and so we would never carry this treatment out.
At Dr. Green’s office, we always follow the FDA recommendations for treatments, and in addition to that, the dosages required for treating fat areas (other than the chin) are not accurately researched, so if a patient has a side effect or issue post treatment, then this may cause a significant problem for the patient, which is something we want to completely avoid.
Introducing the CoolAdvantage Petite
*Disclaimer: Results may vary with each patient.
The good news is that there are FDA approved treatments for bra-bulge and back fat issues that we do recommend to our patients and these treatments have been proven to help reduce fat in these areas. One of these solutions is CoolSculpting using the CoolAdvantage Petite. The way this device works is that the applicator is placed on the area that is to be treated and is cooled to a point where the fat “dissolves” naturally within the body.
This process is known as “fat freezing”, and it takes a few months to completely see the results from the treatment. The great thing about this treatment is that it is completely non-invasive, quick to perform (for instance it can be done on a lunch break), is pain free, with little discomfort, and as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle the fat will not return, so the solution has the potential to be permanent.
If you’re frustrated with the look of the excess fat around the bra strap area then the CoolAdvantage Petite treatment finally offers a safe, effective solution. Contact us online today or call 212-535-3088 to learn more about whether CoolAdvantage Petite may be right for you.
