 Hide Bulge Surgery Scars Below Bra-line With the New Back Lift Procedure

Tried everything but back fat rolls still giving you nightmares? Well, don't fret it, for help is at hand, thanks to a new back lift procedure that removes those unsightly bumps and bulges while hiding the scar under the bra line.

A new research published in the October issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), reveals the evolutionary procedure.

"For many patients-even the very fit ones, such as an aerobics instructor-the upper to mid-line back where the rolls and bulges form was very frustrating," said senior author Joseph Hunstad, MD and ASPS Member Surgeon.

"This redundancy of skin occurs generally from aging and cannot be exercised away. For those who desire to wear form-fitting outfits, this procedure eliminates the problem," the researcher added.

The study reviewed seven female patients who had the bra-line back lift between 2001 and 2007 with an average follow-up of 22 months. Pre-operative marks were placed to outline the patient's brassiere, as well as delineate the excess back tissue to be removed.

The procedure removed the redundant skin, sometimes up to 8 or 10 inches wide, and connected the remaining tissue together.

According to the study, the procedure takes about an hour from start to finish. The authors have completed the bra-line back lift on 20 patients to date.

The study found minimal complications and about two weeks after surgery, patients were allowed to increase their activity levels based on their discomfort. Feedback from all seven patients was uniformly positive, according to the study.

The study concluded that the procedure is a safe and powerful method to contour the middle and upper back - literally removing all of the back rolls and folds. By placing the scar within the patient's bra-line, it is easily concealed even by a two-piece bathing suit, according to the study.
