Posterior body lift includes both the upper back/body lift (or bra-line lift) as well as the lower back lift (or belt lipectomy). These procedures are often ideal for those with massive weight loss (either through diet and exercise or bariatric/weight loss surgery) and in less common scenarios, as a result of natural aging with sagging of back skin.

Lower back lift surgery can also help tighten and sculpt the buttocks, posterior thighs, lateral thighs, hips and abdomen. It can be combined with an abdominoplasty, leading to the circumferential (360-degree) body lift. Similarly, an upper back lift may be combined with a breast lift (mastopexy) for a circumferential incision, though both procedures are often separated.

A lower body lift, as with most body contouring procedures, is most beneficial when you are near your ideal weight since further significant weight loss will lead to more skin excess.

Annually, thousands of people undergo successful posterior body lift surgery with excellent results. The vast majority of these patients are massive weight loss patients.
