Bra bulge can affect virtually any woman, regardless of cup size or body type. If you have visible rolls or bulging around your bra line, you may be uncomfortable wearing certain types of clothes, or feel embarrassed with the way you look.
Our Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, Dr. A.J. Khalil, is dedicated to helping you look and feel your absolute best. He will come up with a customized treatment plan to safely get rid of your bra bulge and help you enjoy a more attractive silhouette.
What Causes Bra Bulge?
Bra bulge occurs when the bra straps or clasps dig into the skin. Sometimes the problem is simply an ill-fitting bra, which can be easily remedied with a professional bra fitting. But other times, the fit of the bra is not the problem — instead, stubborn upper back or armpit fat and/or loose skin causes noticeable rolls or bulging.
You might be genetically prone to storing fat in your upper body, or you may notice that your body changes with age and you develop fat and/or loose skin. Maybe you have rolls of skin left over after significant weight loss.
Whatever the reason for the problem, bra bulge is very difficult to get rid of with diet and exercise. No matter how healthy you eat or how much time you spend in the gym, you may not notice a noticeable change in your body contour. Luckily, Dr. Khalil offers safe, effective treatments to target fat and skin around the bra area.
Treating Bra Bulge
Treating bra bulge depends on whether the problem is excess fat and/or skin.
If you have unwanted fat but relatively good skin tone, Dr. Khalil will likely recommend liposuction. Liposuction involves breaking up the unwanted fat and using gentle suction to remove it from the body. The surgery will leave your back and armpit area looking slim and smooth.
If you have excess skin around your bra area, Dr. Khalil will need to excise it to achieve a smoother contour. Simply removing fat from an area with excess skin will only serve to accentuate the laxity and looseness of the skin.
Dr. Khalili can combine liposuction and skin excision in the case of excess skin and fat.
