ASPS Study Introduces New Bra-Line Back Lift

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., Sept. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Even as many of us yearn to wear the sheer, body-hugging fashions available today, we are stopped by our rear reflection and the sight of dreaded back fat rolls and lumps. A study published in the October issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery(R), the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), reveals a new back lift procedure that removes these unsightly bumps and bulges while hiding the scar under the bra line.

According to the study, the procedure takes about an hour from start to finish. The authors have completed the bra-line back lift on 20 patients to date.

The study found minimal complications and about two weeks after surgery, patients were allowed to increase their activity levels based on their discomfort. Feedback from all seven patients was uniformly positive, according to the study.

The study concluded that the procedure is a safe and powerful method to contour the middle and upper back -- literally removing all of the back rolls and folds. By placing the scar within the patient's bra-line, it is e
