Upper Body Lift

Upper Body Lift

Also known as back lift

Upper-body-lift surgery may consist of one or several procedures, including an upper arm lift, breast lift (or gynecomastia) or surgery to remove fat rolls along the back. Loose, sagging skin resulting from dramatic weight loss or after liposuction is removed to create a tighter and smoother contour, improving your profile and leading to renewed self-confidence.

When to Consider an Upper Body Lift?

  • You recently underwent massive weight loss through natural means or bariatric surgery.
  • You have excess, sagging skin following pregnancy.
  • You are discouraged by loose skin around your arms, chest or waist.
  • You have “back rolls” or rolls of fat around the edges of your lower back.



  • Your clothes will fit better and your body will appear slimmer.
  • Loose skin that causes chafing and rashes will be removed.
  • Body lift surgery will smooth the bulges and rolls that make you self-conscious.


  • There are fairly large scars that we try to hide or minimize.
  • This procedure has a somewhat lengthy recovery period.
  • You will probably need one to two days of hospitalization or skilled nursing care at home.

Are you a good candidate for an upper body lift?

In order to undergo an upper body lift, you must be in good physical health. If you have lost a considerable amount of weight, have loose, sagging skin or want to improve the contours of your body, you might benefit from this procedure. The following are some common reasons why you may want to consider an upper body lift:

  • You have undergone bariatric surgery or significant weight loss through dieting.
  • Liposuction of fat in your upper body has resulted in loose skin that needs to be removed.
  • You have loose skin under your arms, by your armpits, on your breasts and rolls on your back.
  • The layers of fat below your loose skin are relatively thin.
  • Your weight has been stable for at least three to six months, with no further weight loss expected.
  • You are in overall good health without chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease. A clearance for plastic surgery from doctors treating you for medical conditions.

If you are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.

How is an upper body lift procedure performed?

Patients who undergo an upper body lift will most likely be put under general anesthesia. Your experience will depend greatly on which procedures you elect to have done:

  1. Upper arm lift
  2. Breast lift
  3. Back lift

Those who want fat rolls removed from around their lower, middle or upper back will have incisions on both sides of their mid back (where their folds used to be) or near the bra line for women. The excess skin will be removed from the area and the incisions will be closed in layers.

What are the options?

Depending on the areas of your body you wish to target, you may opt for an upper arm lift, a breast lift, surgery to remove fat rolls along the back or a combination of these procedures. Dr Soliman will help you determine which procedures are best for you.

What will my upper body lift incisions and scars be like?

Dr Soliman will make a number of incisions when performing your upper body lift but will take extra care to hide the scars in areas that are not easily seen or are hidden by clothing.


Back lift: This incision goes across the mid back and will be strategically located to be hidden by your bra strap or bathing suit strap.
