About a Back Tuck

Losing weight is an amazing accomplishment that should be celebrated. However, for some women, after they lose weight, they may still have problem areas and loose skin to deal with, which can detract from all of their hard work. One of the most common places to accumulate loose skin and bulging is on the upper back above or below the bra line. If this is something that you're struggling with and feeling self-conscious about, then our board-certified plastic surgeons at Institute of Plastic Surgery can help remove and tighten this hanging skin. Our Colorado Springs, CO patients have had great success with back tuck surgeries, losing multiple inches of pesky, stubborn rolls. If you're interested in achieving that sleek, toned look on your back and desire to be able to confidently wear tight clothing again, then we invite you to schedule a consultation with us to learn more.

Ideal Candidates

The best candidates for receiving a back tuck surgery will:

  • Have loose, excess skin around the bra line
  • Have tried other skin tightening methods without success
  • Reached a healthy weight already
  • Not desire a weight loss or excessive fat removal solution
  • Desire a long-term, natural-looking result

Surgical Technique

In most cases, general anesthesia will be used, and the surgery will be performed on an outpatient basis. Incisions are typically made across the back, starting on one side and going to the other, around the bra line so they will be concealed when wearing clothing. Any excess skin remaining will be trimmed away and excised, as well as the skin above and below surgically tightened and sutured in place so as to appear taut and toned. It is common for certain major weight loss patients to lose 8 – 10 inches of loose skin on their back. The entire process can last around 1 – 2 hours.

What to Expect

After your procedure, you will be sent home to recover in a compressions garment that will protect the incisions and aid in the healing process. You can expect to feel some soreness, tightness, and discomfort for a few weeks following the surgery. However, once you have healed, your back should look tighter, more toned, and have an all-around sleeker appearance free of bulging skin. Your results should be long-lasting; however, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise as you can still alter your results by weight gain and natural aging. Scarring is a part of this surgery, but our surgeons will be careful to make the incisions in places that will be concealed by your bra or bathing suit.
