Many women complain to us about their “bra rolls” – unsightly rolls of back fat which make their bras fit uncomfortably. The only option for this problem had been Liposuction. Liposuction occasionally will leave the patient with loose skin. Bra line Back Lift is a procedure where the back rolls are surgically removed after careful liposuction, leaving behind a flatter back with a scar that’s hidden in the bra line.
Bra line back lift is a surgical procedure performed in our ambulatory surgery center as outpatient procedure by our plastic surgeons. The procedure is performed by initially performed custom micro liposuction then followed by removal of the excess skin. Care is taken to hide the scar on the bra line.
What is involved?
To tighten the bra skin, our plastic surgeons usually makes an incision along the bra line. Scars are usually hidden within the bra line. Liposuction is often added to this procedure to improve final shape and contour. Depending on skin excess and elasticity, liposuction alone may provide sufficient improvement.
Our Plastic Surgeons performs bra line back lift under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. We instruct bra line back lift patients to wear a compression garment for several weeks. Light arm movement is encouraged soon after surgery but strenuous upper body activity is limited for at least several weeks. Patients may drive and return to work once they discontinue narcotic pain medicine.
How much does it cost?
Bra line back lift is considered cosmetic and therefore is not covered by insurance. The cost of Bra line back lift varies based on the extend of your surgery and the cost of any additional surgery. To make surgery affordable for you, we offer patient financing plans, so be sure to ask. The cost may include the following:
Hospital or surgical facility costs

Most health insurance plans will not cover cosmetic Bra line back lift surgery, related complications or another surgery to revise the appearance of your body.
