You can develop this condition from aging, sun exposure, or massive weight loss. If you suffer from this issue, consider a bra-line back lift. This surgical procedure, offered by Dr. Gregory Wiener in Chicago, IL, can help improve the appearance of the back and boost overall confidence. But is it right for you? Here’s what you need to know.

What Is A Bra-Line Back Lift?

A bra line back lift is a body contouring procedure that addresses loose, sagging skin or fat rolls on the upper and middle back. The Art of Plastic Surgery’s Dr. Gregory Wiener often combines bra line back lifts with liposuction to achieve better contouring results.

Ideal Candidates for a Bra-Line Back Lift

The ideal candidate for a bra-line back lift is someone with sagging skin or back fat rolls that have not responded to diet and exercise. One example is women with substantial weight loss after bariatric surgery. While the procedure is not exclusive to women, men do not typically develop sagging skin or back fat rolls from aging and sun exposure at the same rate as women.

The Back Lift Procedure

The bra-line back lift is done under general anesthesia and usually takes between 1 and 2 hours. An incision is made across the back, and excess folds and skin bulges are removed. The scar is typically hidden behind a bra or bathing suit, and most patients report significant improvements in appearance and confidence.

Recovery from a Bra-Line Back Lift

After the surgery, patients must wear a form-fitting surgical garment for several weeks. A comfortable bra with a wide transverse strap is recommended during this time. Patients should avoid vigorous exercise or heavy lifting for about two weeks and can usually resume normal activity after four weeks.
