This is a 5’5” 260 pound 47-year-old Black female. Her maximum weight was 460 pounds. This patient lost 200 pounds with gastric bypass, diet, and exercise. Despite undergoing significant weight loss, the patient remained dissatisfied with the residual excess skin and fat around her back and sides. This led her to consult with Dr. J. Timothy Katzen, a renowned specialist based in Beverly Hills, California. During the examination, Dr. Katzen identified that mere back liposuction would leave the patient with skin rolls on her back, necessitating a more comprehensive approach. To address these concerns, Dr. Katzen skillfully performed a combined procedure of vertical torsoplasty and back liposuction. The vertical torsoplasty, a meticulous procedure, lasted approximately four hours, while the back liposuction was completed in about an hour, all under general anesthesia administered by a skilled anesthesiologist. She was able to resume her desk job just two weeks post-surgery. For the initial three weeks, she diligently performed dressing changes and consistently wore a compression garment for six weeks to support healing. In the fourth week, she began applying silicone strips and scar cream twice daily, a regimen she continued for six months to enhance scar healing. The back lift was remarkable. The patient was ecstatic with the results of her back lift, finding a renewed sense of confidence in her appearance. She was happy and satisfied with her vertical back lift results.
