Banish Bra Bulge before Summer

Liposuction, NYCRegardless of cup size and even overall body frame, bra bulge may be a problem many women face. Bra bulge is a small pocket of fat that can appear between the outer, upper quadrant of the breast and the armpit. Sometimes, this obvious bulge may occur due to a poorly-fitted bra. It may also relate to a general lack of tone in the area of the upper chest; an area that can be difficult to target.

The fact of the matter is it doesn’t really matter why you have bra bulge. What matters is that you have access to treatments that can eliminate bulges at the armpit or even across the back strap of your bra. At Luxurgery in NYC, you have multiple options for addressing these problem areas, and all of our options can have you looking your best well before summer.


Most people recognize liposuction as the most renowned method of fat reduction. This may have been true several years ago, but liposuction now has some major competition from a few non-surgical approaches. Reasons for choosing liposuction to reduce bra bulge may include the near immediacy of results. Yes, there will be swelling and bruising, but, in such a small area, liposuction results may be nicely obvious within a few weeks. The downside is that a little downtime is needed after surgery.


The application of freezing temperature has become almost as common as liposuction for fat reduction. CoolSculpting is a procedure we perform in the office without the need for anesthesia. Patients go home right after their session with no restrictions on activity. CoolSculpting does work over time, first affecting cells with cold so that their liquid contents crystallize. The cells are then processed and eliminated over the course of several weeks. The time it takes for fat to go away (approximately 3 months) is the one downside to CoolSculpting.


Dr. Shridharani is a pioneer in the use of Kybella for localized body-sculpting. Kybella is the injectable drug, deoxycholic acid, that has gained FDA approval for submental fat-reduction (double-chin). In our office, Dr. Shridharani routinely administers Kybella for various other areas of concern, such as fat bulges around the bra area. Like CoolSculpting, Kybella works overtime to naturally destroy fat cells. Once they are gone, they do not grow back.
