Back lift

A back lift is a plastic surgery procedure which tightens and smooths the skin of the back and reduces excess of the skin. This procedure is recommended for patients who are experiencing skin flaccidity as a result of rapid weight loss, and for overweight patients who are undergoing liposuction in addition to skin reduction. The procedure is most commonly performed in patients following bariatric surgery with significant weight loss.

A back lift can be performed with liposuction or skin resection alone. This depends on the patient’s skin condition.

The procedure generally lasts around two to three hours and is only performed under general anaesthesia. The plastic surgeon makes an incision in the skin, the scar of which, in the case of women, will be hidden in the bra area. The doctor may also make an incision that overlaps the side of the chest.

Patients who come to the KCM Clinic for a consultation with the doctor, are referred to do the appropriate tests and inform the doctor about their medical history. Based on the information obtained and the results of the tests, the plastic surgeon specialist decides on the patient’s eligibility for surgery.

It is recommended that patients undergoing a back lift are in good health or have properly treated chronic diseases and do not smoke.

Among the benefits of a back lift procedure that can be mentioned are: firming and smoothing of the back skin, getting rid of unsightly folds of skin, significant tightening of the back skin, firming and smoothing of the back skin.

    Back lift can be performed with liposuction or only skin resection. In some cases, simply sucking off fat gives improvement. The cut is performed so that the scar can be hidden in the horizontal fastening of the bra and can be extended to the lateral parts of the chest. The procedure time is 2 hours and is performed only under general anesthesia.

    Please inform your doctor about all medications you are taking and complaints during your medical consultation. All required tests should be performed as prescribed by the physician prior to surgery. It is very important to stop smoking and drinking alcohol before surgery because these substances have a significant negative effect on wound healing. We recommend giving up alcohol and cigarettes for as long as possible before and after the procedure to avoid postoperative scars.

    During the first weeks after the surgery, avoid physical exertion or heavy lifting, as well as sauna visits, bathing and sunbathing. It is also worth giving up drinking and smoking nicotine-containing products as long as possible. This is important because of the proper healing of wounds after surgery and reducing the likelihood of scars.

    People struggling with comorbidities or other health problems must inform their physician during the first qualification consultation. Before the procedure, perform all tests as prescribed by the doctor and follow all recommendations before and after the procedure.
