This is a 5’9” 240-pound Black 38-year-old male. His maximum weight was 420 pounds. This patient lost 200 pounds with gastric bypass, diet, and exercise. Following his weight loss, he experienced an increase in skin rolls all over his body. In particular, he was not fond of how his back rolls looked. His goal was to permanently get rid of his skin rolls and extra back fat. Regardless of where the ensuing scar was located, he was looking for the best outcome. He had a back lift, or horizontal torsoplasty. Another name for this operation is an upper body lift or back lift. Because the incision 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 takes three to four hours to complete. A substantial portion of extra skin and fat in the shape of a butterfly is removed during the horizontal torsoplasty procedure. Two drains are typically inserted. Drains typically remain in place for ten to fourteen days, depending on output. After two weeks, the patient was cleared to resume his seated employment. If his employment involved physical exertion, he would be allowed to return to work in approximately three to four weeks. The patient is ecstatic about his outcome. He is happy that his skin rolls and back fat have permanently disappeared, as they served as a daily reminder of his previous weight.
