Back Fat

Reduce the appearance of back fat with our range of clinically proven treatments. Back fat pockets are not only often uncomfortable but can make patients feel very self-conscious, especially when on holiday, or in tight-fitting t-shirts or bodycon dresses. Our treatments sculpt and contour these back fat stores without any surgery or downtime.

Back Fat Treatments at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic

What causes back fat?

As we age, our muscles lose strength and tone – known as atrophy of the back muscles. A poor diet and lack of exercise can also contribute to excess back fat, leading to the formation of back fat rolls. Back fat is a key problem for both men and women, but thankfully, a range of treatments now exist to reduce back fat without having to opt for invasive surgery.

Our Back Fat Treatments

At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we specialise in back fat reduction treatment without physical side effects or downtime. CoolSculpting® is our key back fat treatment that targets subcutaneous fat across the back to break it down naturally. It is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that delivers proven results without surgery, anaesthesia or downtime. This non-invasive, fat freezing (cryolipolysis) treatment is a body contouring method that reduces fat cells with results that are long-lasting and noticeable.

Your practitioner will use the CoolSculpting applicator to target areas of back fat specifically. To learn more about this condition, take a look at our dedicated blog where we talk about how to get rid of back fat with CoolSculpting.

How to get rid of back fat?

Over time, fatty tissues can build up and collect around your upper, mid and lower back areas. But getting rid of these stubborn back fat bulges is often a difficult task, involving the adoption of back fat exercises as well as a healthy eating plan. Back fat is so difficult to get rid of because it is a hard area of the body to exercise during weight training exercises for example, and also the muscles in the back are often thin as a result. Muscles are crucial in helping to burn fat deposits in your body, so if you have thin muscles in this area, then sculpting back fat is made more difficult. However, you can adopt a range of back exercises to target atrophied muscles across the back to make them bigger. This can help boost the back fat reduction process to give you a more sculpted physique.

Best way to get rid of back fat

While back fat workouts and dieting are proven to help patients get rid of back fat, the process requires ample dedication and time before results begin to show through. A better technique to reduce back fat stores is combining this tried-and-tested approach with body sculpting techniques like CoolSculpting which have been designed to strategically target fat removal across the back. In as little as four to six weeks, patients start to notice a significant reduction in back fat once having a targeted CoolSculpting treatment. This makes it one of the best and fastest ways to reduce your back fat stores without surgery. As an added benefit, the destroyed fat cells will be permanently removed from your body after treatment, giving you permanent fat loss results, as long as you maintain a healthy diet and exercise programme afterwards.

CoolSculpting Elite for back fat

We also offer the newly improved CoolSculpting Elite dual applicators, which give our clinicians the ability to target a greater surface area of fat in just one standard session. This makes the treatment ideal for patients who want to target multiple areas of fat across their body at the same time as having a back fat procedure done. Find out more about this treatment on our dedicated treatment page. For more information on our back fat body sculpting treatments, contact our London and Buckinghamshire clinics directly.
