This is a 5'4", 250-pound White 45-year-old female. Her maximum weight was 375 pounds. This patient lost 125 pounds with gastric bypass, diet, and exercise. She disliked the extra fat and skin on her sides and back. Almost everywhere on her body she developed more skin rolls after she lost weight. In particular, she disliked how her back rolls appeared. Her goal was to get rid of the extra fat and skin rolls on her back for good. Regardless of where the scar was placed, she was looking for the best outcome. She did a lot of study on the internet and found that Dr. J. Timothy Katzen in Beverly Hills, California, was an expert in reconstructive plastic surgery after losing significant amount of weight. She had a horizontal torsoplasty, or back lift. This surgery is also known as an upper body lift or back lift. Because the cut is made across the back, the horizontal torsoplasty is also known as a bra-plasty, bra straplasty, bra lift, or brassiere back lift. Under general anesthesia, this horizontal back lift takes three to four hours to finish. Many inches of extra skin and pounds of fat in the shape of a butterfly are removed during a horizontal back lift or torsoplasty. In this case, six pounds of skin and fat were removed from the back. This patient is thrilled with her back lift results. She does not mind her back scar.  She is glad that her back skin rolls and back fat are gone for good because the back rolls always reminded her of how much she used to weigh.
