A bra line back lift, also known as an upper body lift, is a specialized procedure developed to treat excess skin, folds, and rolls in the mid-back area. This surgical treatment removes the excess fat and skin at the upper back and bra line to create a more sculpted, firm, attractive figure, free from back fat rolls.

A bra line back lift: A recent development in body sculpting.

Until about ten years ago, there was not a successful treatment for the bulges of fat and skin at the mid-back area. The bra line back lift was invented by one of Dr. Flugstad’s mentors, the innovative and gifted Dr. Joseph Hunstad.

This procedure is designed to address:

  • The unwanted bulge of extra skin and fat above bra straps
  • Back fat rolls that weight loss has not handled, and which lead to embarrassment
  • The loose flesh caused by aging or weight loss, leaving sagging skin and tissue folds in the areas of the back
  • The physical discomfort of ill-fitting clothes and excess fat affecting your appearance

Are you a candidate for bra line back lift?

Excess skin and fat in the mid-back can cause a lumpy appearance under shirts, tops, dresses, and swimsuits. This unsightly condition can now be corrected with a state-of-the-art surgical technique performed by Dr. Flugstad. If you are unhappy with the appearance excess fat and skin on your mid-back, you are likely a good candidate for bra line back lift.


Will I be able to wear a bra right away?

Not until the sutures heal or dissolve, probably about two weeks. After that time, you may wear a loose-fitting or leisure bra. Rest and recover, and dress in loose, comfortable garments so your incisions heal quickly and correctly.

Will I need liposuction to get rid of the fat in my back?

Not usually. Most of the time, Dr. Flugstad can excise the fatty tissue while he has the incision open, as well as the sagging skin, so you will have a smooth, firm back you will feel comfortable revealing in swimwear or any clothing.

Will I have much scarring?

All incisions produce some scarring, however with the bra line back lift, once healed, the scarring is minimal, so can wear revealing clothing, including swimsuits, with confidence.
