It’s not uncommon to experience excess tissue in the upper back, specifically at the bra line.

Who Can Benefit from a Bra line Lift / Upper Back Lift?

Bra line lift/upper back lift surgery serves to remove excess tissue and tighten loose skin from the back. The best candidates for the surgery are at a stable weight and in good health overall. In addition, most candidates share the following characteristics:

  • Sagging or loose skin in the upper back
  • Loose skin in the bra rolls
  • Previously lost a significant amount of weight

In most cases, back lifts result in thin, inconspicuous scars that often fall on the bra line, making them easy to conceal under a swimsuit or undergarments.

Concerns About Bra line Lift / Upper Back Lift

Recovery

A bra line back lift is generally an out-patient procedure. After a bra line lift/upper back lift, it is common to experience swelling as well as some discomfort or numbness in the area. Patients are required to rest one week before returning to work and other regular activities. Usually, drain placement isn’t used in this procedure at Aspira Plastic Surgery.

Scars

Dr. Erella is careful to ensure the most inconspicuous scars possible. Incisions for a bra line lift/upper back lift are usually made along the bra line. The resulting scar is a thin line that can be easily hidden under clothing.

Cost

The cost of a bra line back lift depends on the extent of the tissue that needs to be removed, the techniques necessary, and other factors. A consultation with Dr. Erella is the best way to understand the cost of your bra line lift/upper back lift surgery.

Pain

Bra line lift/Upper back lifts are performed under general anesthesia. Some discomfort is normal during the recovery process. Pain can be managed through medication. Some patients may experience swelling, numbness, and bruising throughout the recovery process as well.
