This is a 5’4” 160 pound White 22-year-old female. Their maximum weight was 250 pounds. This patient lost 90 pounds with diet and exercise. She was not happy with the excess skin on her back and sides. She had a vertical and horizontal torsoplasty. After considering several plastic surgeons, she ultimately chose Dr. J. Timothy Katzen in Beverly Hills, California, to address her concerns. Dr. Katzen performed a back lift surgery, which included liposuction on her back and a horizontal torsoplasty. This procedure, also known as an upper back lift, bra lift, bra strap lift, brastraplasty, or braplasty, took a total of four hours to shape her chest and one hour to remove the back fat. Throughout the entire procedure, the patient was comfortably asleep, thanks to the expertise of an anesthesiologist who administered the sedation. During the back lift surgery, four pounds of back skin and fat were successfully removed. Remarkably, just two weeks after the procedure, the patient was able to return to her sitting job. To aid in her recovery, she diligently wore a compression garment for a total of eight weeks.The patient was thrilled with the results of her backlift, as it allowed her to wear clothes she couldn't previously. She no longer feels self-conscious about her back and is genuinely happy with the outcome. Thanks to Dr. Katzen's expertise, this patient's back skin and rolls are gone for good. She is extremely grateful for the back lift she underwent with Dr. Katzen.
