Back Lift To Address Excess Skin

Back Lift

Back Lift

Back lift surgery can trim hanging or excess skin around the upper, mid, and lower back to promote a slimmer, firmer-looking appearance. While exercise can help burn fat and build muscle, it cannot address loose skin left over from aging or substantial weight loss. This sagging skin may take away from back definition and cover up firm contours. Back lift surgery can surgically remove and reposition hanging skin to accentuate curves. Liposuction may be combined with a back lift to remove pockets of stubborn fat, as well as any bulging at the mid to lower back. Together, these treatments can sculpt a youthful-looking, slender back.

Your Back Lift Procedure

Your back lift may be performed at an outpatient surgical facility or a local hospital, depending on your particular surgery. Your back lift surgeon will redrape loose back skin while removing any excess skin from the body. Back liposuction may also be utilized to reduce bulging around the mid back and flanks. Together, these two techniques can slim your physique for a firmer look.

Back lift surgery can also be used alongside other body contouring techniques, including tummy tuck surgery, buttocks augmentation, and thigh lift surgery. Your plastic surgeon may also choose to perform back lift surgery as part of a more comprehensive body sculpting procedure, such as a body lift.

What To Expect After Undergoing Back Lift Surgery

Back lift patients should expect swelling and bruising to occur in the weeks following surgery. Depending on the extent of your back lift procedure, you may require anywhere from 2-4 weeks of recovery time before resuming most daily activities. Your back lift surgeon can discuss exact timeframes during your consultation.

Back lift surgery is a long-term solution to excess back skin. Patients can expect to see improvements to the shape and contours of their back in subsequent weeks.
