This is a 5’5” 190 pound White 39-year-old female. Their maximum weight was 270 pounds. This patient lost 80 pounds with diet and exercise. Despite her significant weight loss, she was still troubled by residual skin and fat on her back and sides. Her thorough online research led her to Dr. J. Timothy Katzen in Beverly Hills, California, renowned for his expertise in post-weight-loss reconstructive surgery. Upon visiting Dr. Katzen, it was clear that back liposuction alone would not suffice, as it would leave her with loose skin rolls. To address this, Dr. Katzen performed a vertical torsoplasty along with the liposuction. The torsoplasty, lasting about 5 hours, and the liposuction, an additional hour, were conducted under general anesthesia, overseen by an anesthesiologist. To facilitate healing, a drain was placed on each side of her back, which were later removed on the 10th day after the operation. She was able to resume her office job 2 weeks later. She continued to wear a compression garment for 6 weeks. Starting the 4th week, she began a regimen of applying silicone strips and scar cream twice a day, a practice she kept up for 6 months. The transformation brought about by the back lift has been astounding. She now delights in wearing clothes that were once not an option for her. This back lift has not only reshaped her physique, giving her an impressive silhouette, but it has also profoundly boosted her confidence and eliminated her concerns about her body image.
