Combining back liposuction in New York City with back lift surgery can restore a slimmer, more youthful-looking back by removing excess skin and fat. Aging, weight loss, and genetics can contribute to the formation of loose back skin around the upper, mid, and lower back. This hanging skin cannot be reduced with further weight loss and must be removed surgically to tighten the entire back. Layers of stubborn back fat and bra bulges are also difficult to reduce with weight loss methods. As a result, back liposuction is often utilized to reduce fat deposits and back lift surgery is combined to remove excess skin. Patients can target love handles around the lower back and flanks, bulging of the mid back, and drooping skin around the upper back and shoulders with this combination procedure. At NYC Lipo, our liposuction surgeons offer a variety of back lipo options, in addition to back lift surgery, to achieve transformational, long-lasting results

Back liposuction removes excess fat from the back using small cannulas. These cannulas are inserted under the skin through tiny incisions. Once positioned, the cannulas extract fat cells from the upper, mid, and lower back to reduce stubborn fat deposits. In addition to removing excess fat, undergoing lipo for the back can result in skin tightening benefits to promote a firmer appearance.
Back lift surgery uses two approaches to target excess skin. First, drooping skin can be removed to improve back definition for a firmer, slender-looking back. Next, remaining skin can be repositioned to provide a lifting effect and reduce sagging around all areas of the back, resulting in enhanced contours. The lower, mid, and upper back areas can be targeted together during your back lift procedure to ensure balance and symmetry throughout the back. Patients can also target these areas separately. Additionally many female patients undergo liposuction with back lift surgery to combat stubborn bra bulges and love handles. Dr. Levine will discuss which back lift techniques are ideal for your procedure during your consultation at our New York City office.
Yes. Back liposuction and back lift can be used in conjunction with other body sculpting or liposuction procedures to achieve optimal results, including breast augmentation, tummy tuck, body lift, SmartLipo®, and VASER® LipoSelection. Dr. Levine will discuss which procedures may best enhance your back lift results.
Together, back liposuction and back lift surgery can result in the reduction of excess fat and loose skin from the upper, mid, and lower back. Patients looking for back sculpting results can opt for liposuction and back lift treatment for natural-looking results. Undergoing lipo for the back is not meant to be a weight loss procedure. Instead, back liposuction and back lift surgery can enhance weight loss results by tightening the appearance of the back for firm curves from the shoulders down to the flanks. Dr. Levine will discuss if liposuction and back lift is right for you during your consultation at our NYC office.
Liposuction and back lift requires the use of general or twilight anesthesia, depending on the specifics of your back lift procedure. Dr. Levine will discuss which type of anesthesia is ideal for your back liposuction and back lift surgery during your consultation at our NYC office.
Liposuction and back lift surgery recovery time is dependent on the details of your procedure. Patients can expect to return to work within weeks of undergoing treatment. Bruising and swelling around the back is expected and typically lasts for a few weeks. Additional healing time may be needed before returning to your normal exercise routine or other physical activities.
Combining back lipo with back lift surgery can promote smooth, long-lasting definition around the back. Back liposuction is ideal for eliminating bulging fat deposits that are difficult to reduce through traditional weight loss. A back lift can remove loose skin while repositioning excess skin to improve sagginess. Patients can expect natural-looking contours around the back when combining back lipo with back lift surgery.
In order to maximize your liposuction and back lift results, it is important to follow all pre and post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Levine.
Certain products and supplements should be avoided in the weeks prior to your liposuction and back lift procedure, unless medically necessary. By doing so, patients minimize their risk of bruising and swelling. Blood-thinners and medications that contain ibuprofen or aspirin should be avoided. Patients should also refrain from taking multivitamins and herbal supplements.
Certain medications, including Tylenol, Bromelain, and Arnica Montana, may be recommended to alleviate pain or discomfort post-procedure. For more details regarding our liposuction and back lift aftercare suggestions, click here.
