What is a back lift?
Some people who have lost lots of weight tend to have problem areas that cannot be addressed with diet and exercise alone. This usually includes the upper and mid-back or bra line area. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Husam Elias is excited to offer back lift surgery (also known as a bra line lift or back tuck). This procedure will trim away extra bulges of skin from the upper back and sides of the chest to create a slimmer contour. Many patients decide to combine liposuction with a back lift to also address isolated pockets of fat. If you have been struggling to achieve the shape you desire, call Southern California Center for Surgical Arts in Sherman Oaks, CA to learn more about how a back lift can help you reach your goals.
What to expect from back lift surgery
A back lift takes just about 1 – 2 hours to complete and is performed under general anesthesia. It is considered an outpatient procedure. During a back lift surgery, an incision is generally made across the upper back from one side to the other, usually where the bra line resides. Excess skin and tissue are trimmed away, and the remaining skin just above and below the bra strap is pulled tight and then sutured.
After surgery, you will be fitted with a compression garment with a large back strap to help compress the surgical area and keep the incision protected. Some discomfort and tightness will initially be felt, but this subsides after a few weeks. Dr. Elias will also provide aftercare instructions to help in the recovery process. It's important to adhere to all instructions because this will speed up the healing period and aid in providing the best results possible. For most, the outcome is a tighter, flatter, more toned back, which allows patients to wear more types of clothing with confidence. The scars, once healed, are usually hidden under the bra strap.
Southern California Center for Surgical Arts Reviews
My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room. Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:
Dr. Elias pulled my wisdom teeth out like they called his mamma fat or something! Surgery was quick and basically painless. Didn’t need any of the pain meds and was back at work two days later looking like a snack. Diane was the nurse that took care of me for most of the process and she was so wonderful, kind, funny and sweet. If my wisdom teeth every grow back, I will definitely be coming back to Dr. Elias immediately. Thank you!
He did Facetite on me on a Friday and I was back to work on Monday - Dr. Elias is wonderful! He did Facetite on me on a Friday and I was back to work on Monday. He's a true artist & perfectionist! He's really good at injectables as well. I get Botox & fillers all the time with him. The staff is very friendly!
Excellent, clear communication, professional. Great staff with a fun vibe. Clean office. Lots of follow ups and no issues with my dental implant! Everyone was A+.
