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.
The Bra Line Back Lift™ Procedure
A Bra Line Back Lift™ is typically performed under general anesthesia, but this procedure may also be performed under local anesthesia.
Once the anesthesia takes effect, an incision is made across the back. Dr. Repta will use liposuction to remove any bulging fat and then remove excess skin and tissue. He will pull the remaining skin taut to achieve a smooth, tight contour. This incision is then sutured shut with special care, ensuring your scar can be easily hidden beneath a bra or bathing suit.
