There are various types of surgical solutions available for almost every kind of restoration or aesthetic work. Be it liposuction for fat removal, or surgery for breast enhancement, but there is probably one particular area of the body that might be giving you nightmares. The back fat roll (or rolls) above or below the bra line is one such area which many people find hard to manage. Even after doing copious amounts of exercise or diet control, it is extremely difficult to remove the bumps and bulges at the back.
Bra-line back lifts: what is it?
Bra-line back lift is a procedure to redress the sagging skin caused due to aging, sun exposure, or massive weight loss (such as weight loss after a bariatric surgery). While the surgery is not exclusive to women, men do not tend to develop back rolls as women do, and the postoperative scar may be visible in men (it can be hidden under a bra in women), making it less attractive to men.
Benefits of a bra line back lift:
Some important positives of a bra line back lift are:
- The process removes the back roll which is hard to remove otherwise. It changes the appearance of the individual to a very significant extent.
- Due to improved appearance, it also provides a morale boost and increases self-esteem.
- The scar caused due to surgery can be well hidden under the bra line, and hence, unlike other surgeries, there is a minimal issue of scar management.
- The result of a bra line back lift is immediate.
Usually, there is no major risk associated with a bra line back lift. However, some risks of the procedure are:
- If poorly performed, the surgery may leave behind some visible scars.
- Risks associated with anesthesia.
- Bleeding and risk of infection.
People must avoid heavy workout after the surgery. It is also recommended to avoid hot baths or wearing tight bras. Activity should be gradually increased after two weeks of surgery.
