getting rid of the “bra bulge” with liposuction

Nearly everyone has one body area that they have a hard time toning and sculpting with diet and exercise. For some women, it’s the “bra bulge,” a roll of unwanted fat that forms between the armpit and bra.

If a noticeable bra bulge is preventing you from wearing form-fitting or backless tops, or from simply feeling confident, liposuction with Dr. Erwin Bulan can help.


Liposuction is considered the gold standard in fat removal. It is designed to remove small pockets of fat that are resistant to weight loss efforts. During the procedure, Dr. Bulan creates small incisions in the treatment area. He then inserts a hollow tube through the incisions and moves it back and forth to break up the fat. Finally, he removes the fat with gentle suction.

Liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis under anesthesia so you won’t feel any pain during surgery.


Dr. Bulan is very meticulous when treating the bra bulge. He will carefully plan out the incisions and place them in between the armpit and hips, focusing on the areas with the most fat. The goal is to create a more attractive and smoother torso.

Following liposuction, the bulging fat below your bra straps will be significantly less noticeable. Your back will look smoother and more attractive when you wear form-fitting, revealing or backless clothing.

Dr. Bulan customizes his liposuction technique to achieve results each patient wants. He will meet with you individually and work with you to design your treatment plan.


You may be a suitable candidate for liposuction if you are at or near your ideal weight, have good skin elasticity and are bothered by small fatty deposits of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. You must also be in good overall health, not smoke and have realistic expectations of liposuction.

The only way to determine whether liposuction is the best choice for your goals is to schedule a personal consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Bulan. Contact Bulan Plastic Surgery by calling (973) 467-9744 or emailing his office today.
