Many people struggle with excess body fat in the bra area, back, or even those unattractive “rolls” that make your body appear less appealing. If you are tired of living with this condition, Dr. Egrari can resculpt this area of your body to appear trimmer and more attractive and fit with an upper body lift. For some patients, the chest may need tightening as part of the procedure. An upper body lift treats these areas so you can experience life ahead with a more athletic, trim appearance, free from excess fat on the back and front of your upper body – no more bulges or rolls.

Who is a candidate for a Chest Wall and Upper Body Lift?

If you have an excess of skin and fat on the bra line.

If significant tissue bulges from the side of your bra.

If your waistline definition is lost due to drooping tissues on the upper back.

If you have lost a significant amount of weight and have rolls in the upper back.

Cosmetic Benefits of an Upper Body Lift:

  • Reduce the excess skin and fat of the upper back.
  • Eliminate the upper body rolls on the back.
  • Improve the contour of the waist by tightening the upper body, and removing excess skin and tissue.

Description of an Upper Body Lift procedure:

  • Upper body lift is a belt-like removal of excess skin and fat from the upper back.
  • After healing, the incision scar is hidden under the most common types of bra or swimsuit.
  • The sutures are placed under the skin and naturally absorbed by the body during healing.
  • For some patients, liposuction may be used for the sides of the chest area.
  • This is an outpatient procedure, and perfromed under general anesthesia.
