Eliminate Saggy Arms, Back Fat and Bra Bulge, Non Surgically
As we age, our body fat tends to increase while our lean muscles gradually begin to decrease. With the lack of proper muscle utilization, unhealthy eating habits, and hormonal changes, fewer calories are burnt throughout the day. The lack of exercise and slower metabolism often results in skin laxity and small pockets of fat accumulating in areas such as the armpit and the back.
Arm fat, bra fat (medically known as “axilla fat”) as well as back fat are some of the common problem areas, especially for women. This small pocket of fat usually seems more evident when tight clothing is worn like body-hugging clothes, tight bras, and swimsuits.
The development of fat in these areas can often be due to inevitable biological reasons where the nature of body fat distribution in females tends to store more body fat than men. While this may not be known to many, apart from fat, loose skin could also be a cause for bra fat to be more prominent. Loose skin around the arms and back areas could also be a result of massive weight loss.
Are there non-invasive treatment options for arm fat, bra fat, and back fat?
Aside from the oldest option of fat removal (Liposuction) which involves going under the knife, thanks to the wonders of modern science you can now consider less invasive options such as Cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing) or Laser Thermolysis (Fat Burning).
Both treatments work to target temperature-sensitive fat cells, causing them to break down and thereafter eliminated naturally from the body’s natural disposal system.
CoolSculpting is a fat-freezing technology that has been safely performed on millions of people all over the world – over 8 million treatments worldwide to be exact. CoolSculpting is the first to be cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with over 50 peer-reviewed medical papers conducted on the science and results of CoolSculpting.
It uses extremely low temperatures (-13° C) to target the fat cells under controlled conditions. Under the impact of extremely low temperatures, the fat cells in the targeted areas crystallize to 25% of the body fat in the specific areas and die.
SculpSure is a body contouring treatment that uses laser thermolysis to target fat cells.
It is a non-invasive laser technology that uses heat energy to melt the fat deposits in the body and destroy as much as 25% of treated fat cells in a single treatment. The procedure gently heats the subcutaneous fatty cells between 42°C to 47°C to disrupt the fat cells’ structure, causing them to break without damaging the surrounding tissues and eliminate through the body’s lymphatic system.
Am I the Right Candidate?
Arm fat, bra fat, and back fat are usually caused by excess fat in the body, loose skin, or a combination of both. That said, the reasons as to why you might be dealing with these stubborn pockets of fat could also be multi-factorial. Depending on the size of the pockets of fat, a detailed body assessment is required to determine the suitable type of fat removal modalities required for the patient.
Dr. Kenneth Thean will begin by understanding your area of concern and fat reduction goals.
After a detailed body assessment is completed by our Body Specialist, he will then evaluate and assess the suitable treatment plan for you and review the results you can expect from this procedure.
A detailed body assessment will be conducted by our Body Specialist, taking into account your needs and goals.
To ensure accuracy during your treatment, your body assessment will comprise of the following:
- 360° 3D Imaging
- 2D 6-position baseline
- InBody weight
- Body fat analysis
- Tape circumferential measurements
- Caliper readings
The procedure’s framework will be assessed and marked on the targeted area(s).
As your treatment day approaches, we’ll walk you through and prepare you for what to expect and we’ll be available to address any concerns that you might have before your treatment.
The appropriate applicator will be placed onto the targeted area according to your tailored treatment plan. As the technology only targets fat cells, you may be rest assured that the surrounding tissues will not be affected.

A non-invasive shockwave therapy that uses low-energy acoustic wave pulsations is applied onto the treated areas to break up the fat cells.
This process also helps to enhance circulation and stimulates lymphatic drainage, which increases the elimination of destroyed fat cells.
Up to 25%* fat reduction can be seen 3 months after the treatment procedure
