To truly look your best at all times, you must consider how you look from all angles. Even if you look at your reflection in the mirror every morning, do you ever look at yourself from the back by viewing your reflection or a photo? Upon closer scrutiny, some people may be surprised to observe the severity of the excess skin and fat that can hang or bulge from the bra line area of the back. A bra line back lift can help individuals trim down their torso to achieve a smoother, slimmer back.
What Is a Bra Line Back Lift?
A bra line back lift is a procedure for candidates who need the area around the bra line to be tightened or lifted. Candidates for this procedure have loose, hanging skin on their back that may drape downward on the waist with a crease or fold. Some have skin that hangs over high-waisted clothing or an additional fold of skin underneath each shoulder blade. Patients with minimal bra bulging as a result of fat can benefit from liposuction, but those with excess skin require a stronger approach. The bra line back lift can remedy skin from below the bra line and tighten the waistline almost all the way down to the hips.
How It Is Done?
The bra line back lift corrects skin laxity and produces a smooth waistline around the back. The skin on the back is too thick to respond to non-surgical procedures, so a surgical approach is required. The horizontal surgical incision is concealed within the bra line so that it will be hidden by a bra, bathing suit, and even most gowns. Through this incision, excess skin is removed to smooth, tighten, and flatten the back skin and contour. The length of the incision will dictate how much skin is removed, and it may extend around the front into the breast crease if needed. In some more severe cases, the incision may clasp the midline of the back, though it generally tapers to the midline. Liposuction may be performed in conjunction with this procedure to remove excess fat and produce even smoother results. Afterward, sutures are buried under the skin and the incisions are taped.
Enjoying Your Results
After the bra line back lift, patients can expect a moderate to light surgical recovery. The recovery is not particularly painful because no muscles are adjusted or manipulated. The results quickly become apparent, and the waistline appears flatter, smoother, and leaner through the back. By simply removing some of this excess skin, the bra line back lift can significantly improve the appearance of the back and waist. Through this procedure, you can achieve results that will help you look your best from every angle.
