Bra line back lift is performed under local anaesthesia to ensure maximum patient safety and relaxation throughout the whole procedure. The surgery is a day case procedure so the patient can go home on the same day.
The first stage of the procedure involves performing liposuction using SAFElipo to remove excess fat from the area. An incision is then made across the back that is used to cut off the excess skin, and the incision is then stitched up with dissolvable sutures. The scar is made in an area that can be easily hidden underneath the bra or bikini strap.
The procedure can help get rid of multi-back rolls by smoothing them out during the surgery.
