Look Forward to a More Attractive Back
It is a common pitfall of human perception to overestimate the importance of what we can see while remaining oblivious to the unseen world. But, if you only concern yourself with how you appear from the front, then you’re only seeing half the picture. The fact is that a flattering front and a beautiful back are two inextricable sides of the same singular coin. Body contouring by Dr. Jack Friedlander is a holistic approach to your entire appearance. He provides 360 degrees of service, including the lower back, the upper back and beyond!

The art of liposculpture is a 3D medium. We strive to achieve symmetry in various areas of the body to bring an appealing balance to your entire form.

Back liposuction considers your essence from every observable angle.
Swimsuits and spaghetti straps can become a considerably more perilous proposition if unsightly back fat rolls disturb placid terrain between your shoulder blades and along your elegant spine. Remember what they say: objects in your rearview mirror may be larger than they appear. This is also true of back fat: pockets and bulges that may seem small can have still have a great impact.

VASER Liposuction: Preparation & Procedure
VASER liposuction is considered minimally invasive because it only requires tiny incisions to perform it correctly. VASER is an augmented version of traditional liposuction because of its unique technology and benefits. VASER stands for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance. The VASER system utilizes a titamium probe connected to an amplifier that emits ultrasound energy that vibrates the probe at 37kHz. This energy results in selective treatment of fatty tissue, leaving the majority of connective tissue, blood vessels and nerves intact. Fat cells tend to clump and coagulate like a sticky pad of butter or a chunky jello mold. Traditional liposuction merely tugs and rips at the fat, increasing the likelihood of unintended trauma to the body. But, like a magic wand, VASER emulsifies stubborn fat cells into a smooth and viscous slurry. This allows for more precise fat removal with less impact on your skin and tissue.
The VASER technique can also tighten skin in the treatment area, something that traditional liposuction cannot do. VASER’s vibrations encourage new collagen growth in lax and overstretched skin. Collagen forms the invisible latticework of struts and supports that lends young skin its supple responsiveness.
Is It Better to Lose Weight Before Liposuction?
Liposuction is not an appropriate treatment for obesity. Dr. Friedlander advises that people with obesity first achieve a healthy, stable weight before considering the body contouring benefits of liposuction. Many of our patients at NorCal Liposculpture are people who have undergone transformational weight loss. These patients seek liposuction to put the final few aesthetic touches on their wondrous results. Patients must commit to an active, beneficial lifestyle if they wish to preserve their majesty after liposuction.
Recovery & Results
Patients are advised to rest over the days following back liposuction, with brief walks interspersed throughout the day. The treated area may be bruised, swollen, or sore after the surgery, but these conditions will improve. Patients will wear a specialized compression garment to optimize results and help reduce swelling. Drains, if used, are usually in place for five to seven days, but this is variable. Most patients who have sedentary or non-physically demanding jobs can return to work within a a few days of their back liposuction surgery. Exercise can be resumed within several weeks.
Most patients feel fully recovered in four to six weeks. Patients will return for follow-up appointments throughout their recovery to allow Dr. Friedlander to assess their progress, as well as for external ultrasound treatments which will expedite recovery.
If patients undergo VASER liposuction, Dr. Friedlander advises avoiding smoking for a month following surgery. Smoking can deplete oxygen in the blood and impede patient healing.
You will notice a significant reduction in the size of your back fat deposits immediately after your liposuction surgery. Your final body contours will emerge over the weeks following your procedure as swelling continues to subside. Results may continue to improve for up to six months.

Do you lose weight with liposuction?
Firstly, it is important to note that liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure. It is an aesthetic surgery for strategic body contouring. The branch of medicine that is concerned with obesity is called bariatrics. Bariatric doctors have their own suite of procedures to help morbidly obese patients lose weight safely and effectively. Liposuction employs physical fat removal to achieve its attractive results. Fat removal is not a safe or and effective way to lose weight. That said, most people will lose six to eight pounds from a simple liposuction procedure. Liposuction balances your body’s contours by eliminating unflattering fat bulges from unwanted areas. It is incumbent upon the patient to commit to a healthy lifestyle so that they might maintain the results of their liposuction surgery for many years to come.
