It is possible to perform just the dorsal part of the upper body lift. The operation is then referred to as a back lift. It makes it possible to deal with back fat, which can be very unattractive, visible under dresses and made worse by wearing a bra. This type of fat can be removed easily, leaving a scar that is easy to conceal beneath a bra.
It is relatively simple and lasts 1h30 if there is no associated hip liposuction. As the skin on the back is thick, in certain cases the scar may also be thick.
For one operated patient, the “before and after” photos are quite spectacular. The scar is easy to conceal.
