Are you self-conscious about your appearance due to loose skin and sagging breasts? Do you struggle to find clothing that fits comfortably?
If so, you might benefit from a back bra lift. This procedure removes excess skin and fat from the upper and middle back, resulting in a smoother and toned appearance.
In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at back bra lift surgery and answer some of the most frequently asked questions about the procedure.
What is Back Bra Lift Surgery?
Back bra lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the back.
This procedure can help improve the appearance of sagging breasts, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and give your upper body a more toned look. The procedure involves making incisions along the bra line on the upper back and extending to the front under the breasts under certain circumstances.
Our board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Partovi may also perform liposuction to remove excess fat. The remaining skin is then tightened and sutured together, leaving you with smoother skin on your back.
Who Is A Candidate For Back Bra Lift Surgery?
Both men and women can benefit from back bra lift surgery.
The ideal candidates are those who have developed loose skin on their back due to aging or significant weight loss.
During your consultation, Dr. Partovi will assess your medical history, requirements, and expectations to determine whether you are an ideal candidate for the procedure.
How Do I Prepare For Back Bra Lift Surgery?
Before the procedure, Dr. Partovi will conduct a physical assessment and explain the procedure, risks, and benefits.
You may be asked to avoid medications that can cause bleeding, refrain from smoking for at least one month before the surgery, and make dietary changes depending on your circumstances.
What Can I Expect During Recovery From Back Bra Lift Surgery?
After the procedure, Dr. Partovi recommends that you plan your procedure at a time when you will be able to take a week off from work following the surgery.
Pain medication will be provided to help alleviate any discomfort you may experience. Practitioners recommend sleeping on your stomach or side for two to three weeks following surgery.
After ten days, patients can return home and resume normal sedentary work activities. Each individual’s recovery time will vary. Patients may resume light physical activity three weeks after surgery, and four to six weeks after surgery, they may return to regular gym activities.
What Results Can I Expect From Back Bra Lift Surgery?
Back bra lift surgery removes excess skin from the upper and lower back regions.
As a result of surgery, the skin on the lower back, waist, and under the armpits becomes smooth and tightened.
Permanent results can be expected, but it is recommended that you maintain the results by following a healthy diet and exercising regularly.
Are There Any Risks Involved With Back Bra Lift Surgery?
Like any surgery, there are risks involved with back bra lift surgery. These risks may include bleeding, infection, and poor wound healing.
Dr. Partovi will discuss these risks with you during your consultation and take the necessary precautions to minimize these risks.
