What Is an Upper Body Lift/Bra Roll Lift?

An upper body lift, commonly called a bra roll lift in women, is a surgical procedure designed to address excess skin and fat in the upper body area, particularly around the back, bra line, and underarms. This procedure targets the "bra roll" or "back bulge" region, which can often resist diet and exercise. During the surgery, excess skin and fat are removed, and the remaining tissues are tightened to create a smoother, more contoured appearance. An upper body lift aims to improve body proportions, enhance overall body contour, and restore confidence by eliminating unwanted bulges and achieving a firmer, more toned upper body aesthetic.

What to Expect The Upper Body Lift/Bra Roll Lift Procedure

An upper body lift, also known as a bra roll lift, by Dr. Kye Higdon typically begins with administering anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the surgery. Dr. Higdon then makes carefully planned incisions in strategic locations, often along the back, bra line, and underarms, to access the targeted areas of excess skin and fat. He meticulously removes the unwanted tissue through these incisions, sculpting a smoother, more contoured upper body appearance. The duration of the procedure can vary depending on the extent of correction needed and whether additional procedures are performed simultaneously. On average, it may take 2-4 hours to complete, depending on the degree of improvement required by the procedure. The power of the upper body lift lies in the precise surgical techniques employed by Dr. Higdon to expertly and effectively address redundant skin and fat deposits. By removing excess tissue and recontouring the area, we can achieve a harmonious and balanced upper body silhouette that enhances your overall appearance and self-confidence.

Upper Body Lift/Bra Roll Lift Recovery

Following an upper body lift, you can expect a period of downtime and initial discomfort, which can be managed with prescribed pain medications and compression garments. Dr. Higdon uses advanced prescribing methods that he helped develop, with a multi-modal analgesia approach that minimizes the need for narcotic prescriptions for his patients after surgery.  Swelling and bruising are common but gradually subside over the coming weeks.  While light activities can usually be resumed within a few days, strenuous exercises and heavy lifting should be avoided for several weeks to allow the body to heal properly. We advise patients to attend scheduled follow-up appointments with Dr. Higdon to monitor progress and address concerns. Over time, as the swelling diminishes and the body adjusts to its new contours, you will notice the full results of the upper body lift, enjoying a more toned and refined silhouette with improved confidence in your appearance.
