Bra-Line Back Lift

What is a Bra-Line Back Lift?

Excess loose skin in the upper-middle back area can occur due to aging and weight fluctuations. Men and women who are bothered by the look of excess fat bulges and sagging skin on their back can often benefit from a bra-line back lift. This procedure corrects loose, sagging skin or fat rolls of the upper and middle back, and is often performed in combination with liposuction to further improve the waistline and profile contour.

Who can Benefit from a Bra-Line Back Lift?

Every year, thousands of individuals undergo bra-line back lift procedures and are pleased with their results. A bra-line back lift may be right for you if you are bothered by the look of excess skin on your upper and middle back due to weight loss or aging. Ideal candidates will be healthy with realistic expectations for the outcome of their procedure. Please contact our office today to schedule a consultation appointment to get started.

The Procedure

The bra-line back lift procedure is performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. To begin, an incision will be created across the back, which can be hidden under the bra line for women. Excess skin will be removed, and the skin will be placed to eliminate wrinkles and folds. Liposuction may also be performed to eliminate any underlying fat bulges. Sutures are then used to close incisions. This procedure generally takes 2 hours to complete.

Bra-Line Back Lift Recovery

Most surgeries are performed in our surgical facility and patients are able to go home the same day. Bruising, swelling, and tenderness at the incision sites will occur and should subside with time. During recovery, patients should avoid wearing any type of bra and should also avoid strenuous activity. Many individuals can expect to return to work 1-2 weeks after surgery. Our team will provide you with specific post-surgery instructions to ensure that you heal correctly.
