Back Fat

This is a common concern that refers to the accumulation of excess fat in the upper back area

Back Fat

What is it?

Back fat refers to excess fat that accumulates on the back, particularly on the upper back and around the bra line. This can create visible bulges or rolls that may be difficult to conceal, leading to self-consciousness and discomfort.


What Causes it?

There are several factors that can contribute to the development of back fat, including genetics, diet, and lack of exercise. Hormonal changes, age, poor posture, and high levels of stress can also play a role. Consuming more calories than the body can burn can lead to weight gain and the accumulation of fat in the back area. Additionally, a sedentary lifestyle and slouching can also contribute to back fat. It is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly to prevent the accumulation of back fat and maintain overall health and well-being.


What Can You Do To Help Naturally?

Reducing back fat naturally can be achieved through various lifestyle changes. One of the most effective ways is to maintain a healthy diet that includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats. Regular exercise, including cardiovascular exercise and strength training, can also help reduce back fat by burning calories and building muscle. Good posture is another important factor that can help prevent the accumulation of back fat. Managing stress levels through practices such as meditation, yoga, or deep breathing can regulate cortisol levels and reduce fat storage. Adequate sleep is also essential for overall health and can help regulate hormones that affect fat storage in the body. By incorporating these natural methods into your daily routine, it is possible to reduce back fat and achieve a leaner, healthier physique.


Are there any non-surgical treatments for back fat reduction?

Yes, non-surgical treatments such as CoolSculpting, laser treatments, and ultrasound therapy can be effective in reducing back fat. However, it's important to consult with a qualified medical professional before undergoing any type of treatment.

Are there any health risks associated with having back fat?

Carrying excess weight, including back fat, can increase the risk of various health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure.

Can back fat be hereditary?

Yes, genetics can play a role in the distribution of body fat, including back fat.

Is it possible to spot-reduce back fat?

Spot reduction, or targeting fat loss in specific areas of the body, is generally not possible. However, a combination of diet and exercise can help reduce overall body fat, including back fat.

Our Approach

Back fat is something that can be very difficult to remove with diet and exercise alone. At RSA, following a detailed consultation, we use the Venus Legacy radiofrequency treatment to stimulate lipolysis (fat removal) to target these stubborn areas. We also combine treatments with the post-lipo programme on the Body Ballancer to ensure effective removal of excess fat cells. We always advise clients to combine body treatments with a prescribed nutrition programme and exercise plan.
