Toledo back lift plastic surgery for a smooth, trim upper back.

Bulging flesh on your back can make clothes fit poorly and, for women, can make it very uncomfortable to wear bras and other clothing. You may also feel self-conscious of your appearance in and out of your clothes. Our Toledo back lift patients realized that fitness and weight loss efforts cannot necessarily help with excessive laxity of the skin on your upper back, middle back, and underarm area. If you have not achieved your goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking, and more proportionate to your overall body image, a surgical back lift may be a good option. For men and women in Toledo, back lift plastic surgery can offer the outcomes they desire.

Back lift surgery reduces skin bulges or rolls the middle and upper back by reducing excess skin, resulting in better-proportioned contours of the back.

Our Toledo back lift surgery lasts 1 to 2 hours.

Recovery from Back Lift Plastic Surgery

You may be required to wear a compression garment for 1 or 2 weeks following your procedure to minimize swelling and support the tissues as they heal.
