A back lift is a cosmetic surgery that focuses on contouring and tightening the back. This is done by removing excess skin, often resulting in a tightened appearance, elimination of back rolls, improvement in the shape of the waist, and enhances the overall appearance and shape.

This often addresses bulging areas above and below the bra line that many women struggle with

When should you consider a back lift?

After extensive weight loss, the skin and tissues of the back may lack the ability to conform to the smaller body size, which creates excess and sagging skin. Pregnancy and hormonal changes can often cause people to hold onto excess skin and fat in their midsection.

Despite diet and exercise, getting rid of the stubborn excess skin in this area can be difficult. Exercise addresses a number of physical concerns and can positively impact fat loss and muscle tone, but there’s no way to completely resolve loose skin with diet and exercise.

People who struggle with this issue can be an excellent candidate for back lift surgery. A back lift procedure at MD Brothers is an effective solution to this common problem people face in Chicago, IL.

The benefits of a back lift:

  • Can see results shortly after procedure
  • Clothes will fit better and be more flattering on the body. This often gives patients their desired shape, oftentimes an hourglass figure for women or a broad upper back that tapers down for men.
  • Relief of physical discomfort caused by bulging skin and fat

What can you expect from a back lift procedure?

A back lift procedure at MD Brothers is an outpatient surgery and takes about one to two hours. This means you will go home the same day after the procedure is completed.

During a back lift procedure, you will be under general anesthesia, which means you will not be awake and you won’t be feeling any pain during the procedure.

After the procedure, common side effects are swelling, bruising, and a feeling of tightness.
