Substantial and Sustained Weight Loss Surgery
Bra Line Back Lift
A more recent type of surgical cosmetic procedure, the bra line lift aims to smooth the upper back and remove stubborn bra rolls and sagging skin. The bra line back lift, also known as Torsoplasty is an elective procedure that is meant for women (and men) who are bothered by fat pockets and stretched skin on their upper & middle back. An incision is made horizontally across the back to create new contours for the upper back. The scar is concealed underneath the bra, hence the name the bra line lift.
Why a Bra Line Back Lift?
Stretched and sagging skin can be a result of weight gain with drastic weight loss either from bariatric surgery or diet & exercise alone. No type of laser procedure or skin cream will be able to tighten and smooth loose skin, surgery is the only way to tighten the skin by removing the excess tissue. Aging can also contribute to lax skin especially on the upper body, as collagen and elastin production slows after age 35.
Regardless of the name, the bra line lift is not entirely intended to for women. Men whom are also bothered by sagging skin and fat rolls on their middle to upper back can undergo the procedure.
