Have back fat rolls taken over your bra line? Get your back in shape at Cosmetrix
If you want to get rid of the excess hanging skin in your upper back, you may want to consider a back lift, also known as a bra-line back lift for the area of the back that is most commonly affected by sagging skin. This popular procedure gives your back a tighter, more contoured shape, by removing unwanted fat and skin and eliminating skin rolls in the upper back area.
A back lift is suitable for adult men and women who were obese and, whether through diet and exercise alone, or in combination with bariatric weight-loss surgery, have lost a significant amount of weight and now have loose skin in their upper back area. To have this procedure, you must be in good health and at a stable weight – if you are continuing to lose weight, you should wait before having this surgery.
In preparing for back lift surgery, you may be asked to:
- Get lab testing or a medical evaluation.
- Take certain medications or adjust your current medications.
- Eat a balanced diet.
- Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements, as they can increase bleeding.
Depending on the objective agreed with your doctor, this surgery can take anywhere from one to two hours. On the day of the procedure, you’ll receive general anesthesia, which will put you to sleep during the operation. The procedure involves excessive skin being removed and sutured into place in a tighter, lifted position. This procedure does not involve liposuction. You will likely have to spend one night in the hospital following the procedure.
It will take at least a week to recover from this procedure. You’ll have to severely limit strenuous exercise for at least two weeks and avoid wearing any sort of bra or support during this period, after which a looser-fitting flex bra is recommended for a few weeks. Your doctor will advise you on the best way to minimize discomfort during the healing process.
After a back lift, you may experience some minor common side effects. In the days following surgery, some pain and swelling are likely to occur, while some numbness and bruising are also common. The risk of other, more severe complications is minimal and rare, but increases if you have poor circulation, diabetes, heart, lung, or liver disease.
Most people are extremely happy with their tighter, more contoured back. Getting rid of the rolls in your upper back will allow you to move more easily and feel better about your appearance. As long as you keep fit and maintain a stable weight, the improved look and feel of your back lift surgery should last you forever.
