Restore your tone with back liposuction from PCLS, an effective body contouring procedure with minimal downtime.
Many of our plastic surgery procedures work to help people who struggle with specific areas of fat such as on the flanks (on the back above the waist), the bra strap areas, the "love handles" (at the waist) and the "saddle bags" (at the upper outer part of the thigh) and the posterior part of the thigh and buttock.
This situation can cause people to be uncomfortable in clothing or self-conscious about their bodies. The expert team at PCLS can help rectify this via the simple and safe back liposuction procedure which can change your aesthetic by firming and toning your body.

Is back fat lipo right for me?
If you are looking to sculpt and tone your body shape as your healthy lifestyle doesn't seem to be helping you to reach your goals, back fat lipo may be able to help. This surgical technique will permanently remove any unwanted excess fat deposits, which when combined with an ongoing healthy diet and exercise routine, will maintain the new look of your upper and lower back areas.
The procedure is best suited to those who are healthy, both physically and mentally with a stable weight within 30% of their expected body fat percentage being maintained for at least six months.
If you have realistic expectations this procedure will be of benefit for those who:
- Have a significant amount of fat around the abdomen, trunk/chest and thighs
- Are at their ideal weight
- Do not experience extreme fluctuations in weight or are overweight
- Are not on any blood-thinning medication
- Are a non- smoker
What is involved in the process for my procedure at PCLS?

You will be given a detailed and customised plan, followed by a second consultation to ensure you are well informed and comfortable before deciding to go ahead with the procedure.
You will undergo the procedure and experience your recovery supported by our expert team every step of the way.

Frequently Asked Questions
One of the main benefits of this procedure is fast recovery times, with just some swelling and bruising expected. The results will be evident when the swelling goes down, often within a few weeks. It is your choice whether or not you want to take a week off work but will need to avoid strenuous exercise for roughly three weeks and use a compression garment supplied for 3 months.
Fat cells that have been removed during liposuction will not come back. It is important to note, however, that the remaining fat cells can get bigger if you put on weight. With this in mind, maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle should see the results of your liposuction last indefinitely.
The results mean a smoother body contour and a more defined shape.
The specific cost will vary based on the work required, which is why an accurate quote will be provided after your personal assessment by the surgeon.
This procedure is very safe, with the most significant risk occurring when too much fat is taken. This will not be an issue at PCLS who are experts in this treatment, significantly lowering any risks. By choosing an experienced surgeon, your procedure is far safer. We will determine how much fat needs to be removed prior to treatment, ensuring high-levels of safety.
