This 6'0" 200lbs., 46-year-old White male patient initially weighed 450 pounds and lost 250 pounds. With the significant weight loss, the patient was not happy with the excess skin and fat of their back and sides. This patient consulted with many plastic surgeons and selected Dr. Katzen to perform his back lift. This patient travelled from out of state to California for his back lift. The patient and Dr. Katzen talked about the choices, which included a vertical torsoplasty, a horizontal torsoplasty, and back liposuction. A vertical torsoplasty with back liposuction was chosen as the best surgery for this patient. Under general anesthesia, this surgery took five hours to complete. General anesthesia was given by an anesthesiologist. The vertical torsoplasty removed a lot of extra skin and fat from the upper and middle of the back. Back liposuction removed a lot of the back fat. About 6 pounds of upper and middle back skin was removed. About 2 liters of back fat was liposuctioned. were taken away. A drain was placed on each side of the chest. The patient wore his back lift compression garment for two months, Also, he applied silicone cream and silicone strips to the scar for 6 months to optimize the scar. The patient was thrilled with his back lift results. The fact that his back skin folds and back fat are gone for good is a relief because they were always a memory of how much he used to weigh. He is very happy that he had a back lift with Dr. Katzen.
