This is a 5’6” 190 pound Black 42-year-old female. Her maximum weight was 303 pounds. This patient lost 113 pounds with RNY gastric bypass, diet, and exercise. However, she was dissatisfied with the excess skin and fat on her sides and back. After considering several doctors, she ultimately chose Dr. J. Timothy Katzen in Beverly Hills, California, to address her back skin and fat concerns. Dr. Katzen performed a backlift surgery, which included liposuction on the back and a horizontal torsoplasty, also known as an upper back lift, bra lift, bra strap lift, brastraplasty, or braplasty. The entire procedure lasted for four hours, during which the patient was under sedation provided by a board-certified anesthesiologist. The surgery successfully removed four pounds of back skin and fat, and drains were placed on each side. After twelve days, both drains were removed, and the patient returned to her sitting job after two weeks. She wore a compression garment for eight weeks and was thrilled with the results of her backlift. The horizontal torsoplasty allowed her to wear clothes she couldn't previously, and she no longer worries about her back. She proudly flaunts her smaller back and feels more confident and content with her body. The backlift surgery with Dr. Katzen has significantly boosted her self-assurance, enabling her to attend parties and go out in public without any concerns about her back rolls. She is glad she had her back lift with Dr. Katzen.
