Bra-Line Back Lift Helps Women Lose the Bulge

Posted by Cosmetic Surgery Review on October 2, 2008

The bra-line back lift has recently been put under the spotlight by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), an innovative body lift technique that allows a surgeon to completely remove extra fat and skin in the upper to mid-line area of the back.  This extra skin and fat is usually a result of genetics and does not respond to diet and exercise.

The October issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), reports that the latest back-lift procedures can help women lose the unsightly pockets of fat that typically create bulges when wearing a tight-fitting top or even a sports bra.  The back lift targets only the few inches of excess back tissue and extra skin that is causing the bulge, and the procedure itself can be completed in under an hour.

Surgeons who participated in the study suggest that the bra-line back lift may be a safe way to improve the contours of the middle to upper-back area so that women can wear formfitting clothing without worrying about extra bulges. Scars from the procedure are strategically positioned in an area where the bra or bathing suit strap is located, which makes hiding the effects of surgery much easier.

This is an exciting new procedure that gives patients concerned about this area of their body a possible new option to discuss with their plastic surgeon,” said James Wells, Chair of the ASPS Public Education Committee. “As with all new procedures that are not yet widely practiced, patients need to choose an ASPS Member Surgeon who has a comprehensive understanding of how bodies change over time, the impact of environment and lifestyle and the know-how to develop the best treatment plan for the best result.”

    As the co-author of the Bra Line Back Lift procedure, I do believe it offers an excellent option in eliminating back rolls and contouring the upper and middle back. I am happy to see that the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) has chosen to do a press release on the upcoming publication of the procedure in order to better inform the public. For anyone who needs additional information on the Bra Line Back Lift procedure you can go to my blog, where I have placed a specific post on the topic. Feel free to ask questions that I may not have covered in the post. Additional information can also be obtained on my website

    All the best, Dr. Repta
