This is a 5’2” 180-pound White 48-year-old female. Her maximum weight was 315 pounds. This patient lost 135 pounds with RNY gastric bypass, diet, and exercise. Following an impressive weight-loss journey, she remained discontent with the residual back skin and fat. Through thorough online research, she discovered Dr. J. Timothy Katzen, a Beverly Hills, California plastic surgeon renowned for post-weight loss reconstructive surgery. Choosing to proceed with Dr. Katzen's expertise, it was jointly concluded that a sole back liposuction would not suffice, as it would leave her with skin rolls. Thus, a combined approach of vertical torsoplasty and back liposuction was undertaken. The torsoplasty required approximately four hours, with the liposuction adding another hour, all under the care of an anesthesiologist. Drains were placed bilaterally and removed on the 14th day. She managed to resume her desk job two weeks post-surgery. For three weeks, she took care of the dressings and was diligent in wearing a compression garment for six weeks. From the fourth week onwards, she applied silicone strips bi-daily, continuing this treatment for half a year. The transformation from the back lift has left her ecstatic, allowing her to don attire previously not possible. The back lift has immensely boosted her confidence, erasing her body image concerns. She is overwhelmingly pleased with the outcome, marveling at the remarkable enhancement of her overall physique, particularly her back.
