Liposuction (mechanical removal of fat deposit) is a golden standard of fat removal. It is the most certain way to improve back fat appearance. Alternatives include fat dissolving injections, often associated with massage.
How it is done?

If it is very small amount of fat to be removed, our surgeon can do it under local anaesthetic in the office, but majority of cases will be done in a day private hospital.
