UPPER BODY LIFT
Upper-body-lift surgery may consist of one or several procedures, resulting from dramatic weight loss or after liposuction is removed to create a tighter and smoother contour, improving your profile and leading to renewed self-confidence.
When to consider an upper body lift
· You recently underwent massive weight loss through natural means or bariatric surgery.
· You have excess, sagging skin following pregnancy.
· You are discouraged by loose skin around your arms, chest or waist.
· You have “back rolls” or rolls of fat around the edges of your lower back.
Also known as mastopexy and breast lift surgery
A breast lift addresses sagging and uneven breasts, decreased breast volume and drooping nipples and stretched areolas (the darker area surrounding the nipples), recreating a youthful shape and lift to your breasts. If there is too little or too much breast volume, a breast augmentation or breast reduction might be recommended in addition to a lift.
A torsoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that removes skin and fat from the upper torso. The torsoplasty targets the sides of the chest and the upper back.
The purpose of a torsoplasty is to remove excess skin and fat from the upper back. One goal is to minimize the torso skin that hangs over the top of the bra strap. Another goal is to eliminate the rolls of chest skin and fat that can harbor moisture and chronic skin infections.
Upper arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is for patients with massive weight loss, it’s likely this incision will run from the elbow to the armpit and perhaps extend along part of the upper chest wall and toward the back. Excess skin will then be removed through this incision.
