What is bra fat?

Bra fat also known as armpit fat or underarm fat, is a physical issue that affects a wide range of women with different body shapes. It describes the process of when skin and fat pushes out from underneath the structure and straps of your bra, creating a bulbous bra fat bulge that creates an uneven surface. It can make many women feel self-conscious about their appearance while also affecting how your clothes fit.

What causes bra fat?

Our bodies tend to store excess fat in areas such as the hips, thighs, arms and back. This can be due to consuming the wrong diet, insufficient exercise, hormones and genetics – and, of course, age. Bra bulges appear on either side of the bra strap, with the straps making these back bulges appear more prominent. For many women, a bra overhang can make wearing swimsuits and sleeveless dresses impossible. Thankfully, there are a range of non-invasive bra bulge removal treatments that can help.

Our Bra Fat Removal Treatments

The CoolMini™ applicator from CoolSculpting® is ideal to treat problem areas such as the fat back bulge around the bra area, while banishing unwanted underarm fat around the bra. It is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat freezing (cryolipolysis) treatment.

We were the first clinic in the UK to offer this new CoolMini™ arm treatment and our patients have been delighted with the results.

We have been voted as the Number One clinic for CoolSculpting in the UK for the sixth consecutive year.

Reduce bra fat with our leading range of non-surgical treatments, from CoolSculpting to Thermage CPT.

How to get rid of the fat under your bra area

Getting rid of bra fat bulges can be achieved if you adopt a healthy diet as well as a targeted exercise regime that is designed to reduce stubborn bra fat tissues. However, even with a rigorous exercise programme, it is difficult for some women to minimise stubborn pockets of fat around the underarm, back and bra areas. This is where fat reduction technologies come into their own.

CoolSculpting for Bra Fat Removal

CoolSculpting is our top bra fat reduction treatment as it has the power to permanently break down and destroy subcutaneous fat tissues around the bra area. In less than an hour, the treatment can freeze bra fat with its cooling technology, eliminating up to 27 percent of the fat cells in this zone.

Thermage for Bra Fat Removal

Thermage is not a fat reduction treatment. However, it can help with the minimisation of bra fat when used in conjunction with treatments like CoolSculpting. Thermage uses advanced radiofrequency technology to tighten and lift the skin. It can therefore be useful to tighten up the skin around the bra area to prevent future sagging and bulging. When used in combination, this is one of the best non-surgical treatments to reduce bra fat and loose, sagging skin around the arms.
