Excess fat along the bra line is a common concern for women, even if they are at their ideal weight. Excess skin along the armpit and upper back can bulge out of the bra and show in certain clothing. The back fat roll above or below your bra line typically occurs as we age, and in many cases, it can’t be reduced with exercise.
What is a Bra Line Back Lift™?
A Bra Line Back Lift™ is a surgical procedure that is designed to create a tighter, more toned back contour. During this procedure, Dr. Repta removes excess fat and loose skin along the bra line to achieve a slim, sculpted appearance that provides an attractive look in a fitted bra, strapless dress, or otherwise figure-hugging clothes.
Benefits of a Bra Line Back Lift™
A Bra Line Back Lift™ is an ideal treatment for women because it can provide many benefits, including restoring confidence. Benefits include the following:
- A more contoured, appealing upper back
- Youthful rejuvenation
- Excess skin and tissue that roll over the bra strap are removed
- A smooth, uniform contour from the upper to the lower back is created
- The scar is a thin line that is easily hidden beneath the bra
- Improved self-esteem
- Short recovery time
- Procedure is low-risk
- Achieves a more elegant, sculpted fit in bras, bikinis, and lingerie
- Chafing and irritation from rubbing skin are eliminated
- The procedure can be performed with local anesthesia
- Results are long-lasting
After your procedure, you will wear compression garments to help minimize swelling and to aid in shaping your torso attractively.
Avoid wearing a bra for 1-2 weeks, and do not raise your arms above your head, take a bath or sit in a hot tub. You may shower within 24 hours after your surgery. Do not engage in strenuous exercise for several weeks.
After two weeks, you may wear a comfortable bra again and begin to slowly increase your activity level.
What is the cost of a Bra Line Back Lift™?
The cost of a Bra Line Back Lift™ procedure depends on the amount and complexity of the skin that needs to be removed. The more excess skin that is present in the back and on the side of the chest the longer that surgery will take and the higher the cost will be. A patient with one bra line fold or roll will be easier to correct with a Bra Line Back Lift™ compared with a Bra Line Back Lift™ performed on a patient with multiple bra rolls. The range of cost for a Bra Line Back Lift™ procedure is between 20k and 40K for most patients.
