This is a 5’5” 200-pound White 35-year-old female. Her maximum weight was 397 pounds. This patient lost 197 pounds with gastric bypass, diet, and exercise. Despite her efforts, she remained unhappy with the excess fat on her torso or back. After thorough research, she discovered an expert in reconstructive plastic surgery post-major weight loss based in Beverly Hills, California. She decided to seek his advice. It was mutually agreed that liposuction on her back alone would not suffice, as it could lead to skin folds. Therefore, Dr. Katzen performed a combination of back liposuction and horizontal torsoplasty under general anesthesia. The torsoplasty took four hours and the liposuction took one hour to complete. Two drains were placed and were removed after two weeks. The patient returned to her desk job three weeks after the procedure, wearing a compression garment for eight weeks and changing her dressings daily. After one month, she began treating the area with silicone strips and scar cream twice daily for six months. The outcome was highly satisfactory for the patient, significantly enhancing her silhouette and back, restoring her confidence to wear clothes she previously couldn’t, and alleviating her self-consciousness about her back. This patient is very happy about her back lift. The back lift has completed her remarkable weight-loss journey. She is glad she underwent the back lift with Dr. Katzen, and traded her back skin for a back scar.
