Surgery After Weight Loss: Patient 2

Surgery After Weight Loss: Patient 2

Procedure: Upper Body Lift

This 20 year old woman lost a lot of weight after bariatric surgery. She previously had excess skin removed from her abdomen and a breast lift. However, now she returns to address the skin of her upper back. Since this is skin., liposuction alone will not help very much and the skin needs to be directly cut off. She had this skin removed and you can see the improvement. The scar will be well-hidden beneath a bra or bikini top.  An upper body lift is the only way to treat the skin of the upper back and is commonly combined with other procedures such as a breast lift, arm lift, or tummy tuck.
