Upper body lift
An upper body lift removes loose skin folds and excess fat from the lateral chest and back. This improves the contour of the thoracic region; an area that does not benefit from a lower body lift. Weight loss patients with loose skin folds affecting the lateral chest and mid-back areas will benefit most from this body contouring procedure.
After the procedure
There is minimal recovery time and patients can return to work the next day. Postoperative scar care is provided by Dr. Watts and her team to ensure you have the best aesthetic result.
Possible complications include scarring, asymmetry, recurrence, changes in nipple sensation, nipple necrosis, and reduction in ability to breastfeed. These will be discussed in depth by Dr. Watts during your consultation.
