Many women have experienced upper back rolls that create an unflattering appearance when wearing a bra. Commonly referred to as “bra fat,” back fat usually appears above and below the bra line helping to contribute to uneven contours.
The Bra Line Back Lift Procedure
A bra line back lift is performed under general anesthesia. An incision is made across the target area giving access to the excess skin and tissue. If needed or desired, liposuction will be utilized during surgery to remove any fatty bulges. By combining liposuction with a back lift, it helps to improve the final shape and contour. Finally, excess skin will be excised with the remaining skin being pulled taut to smooth out the region. The incision will be sutured shut with special care that any scars will be hidden beneath the bra or bathing suit.
Recovery – Compression garments should be worn to aid in shaping your new torso following surgery, and strenuous exercise should be avoided for several weeks. The results are often dramatic as the upper back is contoured allowing patients to wear a bra without excessive bulging.
