This is a 5’6” 230 pound White 52-year-old female. Her maximum weight was 400 pounds. This patient lost 170 pounds with RNY gastric bypass, diet, and exercise. Even after 170 pounds of weight loss, she still had extra skin and fat on her back and sides, which made her feel bad. No matter how much she exercised, she could not get rid of her back rolls. It seemed that further weight loss only made her back rolls worse. Because of this, she saw a doctor in Beverly Hills, California, called Dr. J. Timothy Katzen. The patient and Dr. Katzen agreed that she needed a back lift and back liposuction. Dr. Katzen performed a horizontal back lift with back liposuction. Body shaping took four hours and back liposuction only took an hour. On both sides, drains were placed at the base of the wounds. After surgery, the patient went back to her sitting job. After her back lift and back liposuction, she wore a compression suit for six weeks. She used scar cream and silicone strips every day for six months after the fourth week. Sutures used, silicone cream, silicone strips, and compression all contributed to the appearance and excellent quality of her back lift scar. The back lift surgery changed her look a lot, and she can now fit into clothes that didn't fit her before. She loves how her body and back look after surgery. The back lift also made her back proportionate to the rest of her body. This patient was happy to show off her tight clothes because they made her feel great.
