The sagging most typically affects the area of the back directly above or below a woman’s “bra line”. Back fat is a common issue associated with aging and also weight loss, most patients after having weight loss surgery need this procedure. Unfortunately, it is not something that can be fixed with Liposuction or exercise the skin removal is necessary to have the desired results.

Patients are up and walking within a few hours after surgery, though they are asked to reduce activity for 4 to 6 weeks. Following this time, you can increase activity levels if you are not feeling excessive tightness or discomfort and until Dr. Luis Suarez gives you the go-ahead.
As with many body procedures, swelling, numbness, and bruising may occur but should resolve once the area heals. You will be given a compression garment that should be on for a period of 3 weeks, until most of the swelling has subsided.
There will also be bruising and swelling, which should go away in several weeks after your upper body lift. Sutures that are used are absorbable and do not require removal.
