Bra Line Back Lift Helps Eliminate Excess Fat on the Back
Posted by Cosmetic Surgery Review on August 23, 2010
Many women who eat healthy, exercise regularly and are otherwise in great shape still have a few extra pounds and inches located under the bra line and around the back. Those extra few ounces and pounds of body fat can be eliminated completely with the help of the bra line back lift procedure, an innovative plastic surgery procedure that helps eliminate the unsightly rolls of fat and skin underneath the bra line to create a smooth, contoured appearance.
The bra line back lift is designed to remove extra folds of skin on the back and is performed by a plastic surgeon. The entire procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and requires making a small incision along the bra line before extracting the localized fatty deposits. The surgeon can then remove any excess skin and tissues around the back area, and reconnect the surrounding tissue using with a set of stitches. The entire procedure typically takes about an hour, and can cost up to $10,000 depending on the amount of fat that needs to be removed, and the location of the plastic surgeon’s office.
The bra line back lift is a specialized procedure, and not all plastic and cosmetic surgeons may have extensive experience performing it. It is important for patients to look at before and after photos of patients who have undergone the procedure, and ensure that they are aware of the risks and side effects associated with the procedure. The best candidates for this procedure are women who are in reasonably good shape and of good health, and who have sagging skin and excess body fat located right underneath their bra line. Some men who want a shapelier appearance and more contoured silhouette may also be good candidates for the procedure.
