What is a Bra Line Back Lift?
The bra line back lift is a body contouring surgery that is named for the area of loose skin and fat that commonly occurs along the bra line in women. However, don’t let the name fool you – both men and women can experience symptoms that justify this procedure. The middle to upper back can be difficult to address with diet and exercise, making surgery a highly effective option for enhancing the contours of the body and achieving a more youthful appearance.

Who is the Ideal Candidate for Bra Line Back Lift?
The ideal candidate for a bra line back lift is a patient who is struggling with stubborn fat and excess skin in the upper back, either male or female. However, the best way to determine your candidacy for a bra line back lift is to schedule a consultation with Dr. David Klein or Dr. Andrew Kochuba. During this consultation, they can determine if bra line back lift surgery is the best solution for you.
What is the Bra Line Back Lift Procedure Like?
The bra line back lift procedure is performed with general anesthesia. To begin treatment, Dr. David Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba will make an incision across the back, along the bra line. For women, this incision and any resulting scarring will be well-hidden by a bra or swimwear. Through this incision, excess skin and fat will be removed and the remaining skin will be tightened. Once the desired results are produced, the incisions will be closed and the back will have a smooth, contoured appearance. This procedure may take up to two hours to perform.
What Can I Expect After the Bra Line Back Lift Procedure?
After your bra line back lift surgery, you can expect swelling, bruising and discomfort in the treatment area as the tissue heals. Ensuring that the tissue heals properly is key to achieving optimal results and enjoying a comfortable recovery period. For this reason, many patients take one to two weeks off of work and other activities to rest as much as possible. In some cases, additional downtime may be necessary, particularly in regards to exercise and other strenuous activities. On the day of your procedure, we’ll provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to help you successfully navigate the recovery process. Results will be visible immediately, but your final results may not be visible until any swelling and related side effects fade.
