How An Upper Tummy Tuck and Bra Line Back Lift Can Reshape Your Upper Body

Jun 1, 2019 | Body

Body contouring procedures can reshape and redefine certain areas to help patients feel better about how they look. When you see the words body contouring, most people probably think of having a tummy tuck or liposuction. In the aesthetic game today, there are even more options to have other areas “contoured” so patients can get the look they desire. Both men and women in the Beverly Hills area who are unhappy with their upper body can turn to Dr. Jaime Schwartz for body contouring help with a reverse tummy tuck and back lift procedure in order to tackle certain issues in those areas.

Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jaime Schwartz of Beverly Hills, is a leading expert in skin removal and body contouring procedures. He has extensive experience with transforming his patients and giving them amazing results. This two-part cosmetic combo involves a reverse tummy tuck along with a back or “bra” line lift procedure. These two body contouring treatments focus on a patient’s upper body in order to get rid of troublesome issues like draping, loose skin, or fatty bulges in those target areas. Here is some helpful information on what these two surgical procedures can cosmetically do for you.


Cosmetic body contouring or lift procedures are performed to tighten and remove unwanted fatty tissue as well as skin. With today’s medical advancements, men and women have several options for body contouring procedures. We are going to explore the body contouring options of targeting the upper part of the torso in the front and back. Men and women in the Beverly Hills area that are experiencing sagging, loose skin under the breast area in the front or “bra fat” in the back can benefit from these two cosmetic procedures. Let’s take a look at what a reverse tummy tuck and back lift can possibly do for you.


The main goal of body contouring procedures is to create and contour a slimmer, more fit appearance for patients. With a combination of an upper back “bra” lift and reverse tummy tuck, patients can experience a more contoured appearance in the upper back and front part of their torso. Together, both of these procedures help patients lose pesky, excess fatty tissue just below the breasts and below the shoulder blades while eliminating the appearance of loose, sagging skin. Liposuction is commonly used in both cosmetic procedures in order to reduce pockets of fat tissue that may have accumulated in both areas. This will allow for a more contoured appearance once the excess skin is lifted and tightened.


Due to the anatomy location of both these cosmetic procedures, they can be performed at the same time. A reverse tummy tuck involves the front top half of the torso, while the back or “bra” lift involves the back. An experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Schwartz can perform both simultaneously giving patients one recovery period. Another reason that both of these cosmetic procedures can be done at the same time is neither involves tightening any underlying muscular structure. With both procedures only involving body contouring and skin tightening, just on different sides of the body, it makes it ideal for patients to recover from both at the same time.


The main goal for both of these cosmetic procedures is to give both women and men a slimmer, more fit appearance on the front and back side of their upper torso. Patients will have a more contoured area below their breast area on the front with a reverse tummy tuck. With one streamlined incision or two incisions just below the breast area, the reverse tummy tuck removes any excess fat on the upper torso area with liposuction while tightening loose skin to be tucked tight right under the breast area.

The upper back lift involves one incision under the shoulder blades to trim excess skin and tighten remaining skin upwards. If a patient has a severe issue with “draping skin” on the back, then additional incisions will be made to further tighten and eliminate loose skin. Liposuction can also be used to reduce fatty tissue in certain areas or “back rolls” that can occur at the bra line area before the lift process. After both procedures are done, patients are left with slimmer results on both sides.


Both of these cosmetic procedures can have lasting results for patients. If patients maintain their ideal body weight and continue with a healthy lifestyle, they can enjoy the benefits of having a slimmer, more contoured upper body for a lifetime. With one recovery period for both procedures, patients usually can return to light activity or work in about 7-10 days. Dr. Schwartz also uses an innovative, new anesthetic approach for his Beverly Hills patients which uses a rapid recovery method that involves quicker healing and less risk of complications.

If you have lost weight and are now struggling with bulging areas left behind or excess skin “hanging around”, then you can turn to the surgical help of a reverse tummy tuck or back lift. Women and men in Beverly Hills who want to feel more confident when hitting the pool or beach can now have a more contoured and sleeker look while doing so. Both of these innovative body contouring procedures can give patients the results they desire so they like what they see in the front and back.
