After significant weight loss, it's common to have sagging skin on the upper back, mid-back, or bra line region. These areas can be difficult to address on your own. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Husam Elias is pleased to perform back lift surgery (also called bra line lift or back tuck). This surgical procedure involves trimming away excess skin folds from the upper back and sides of the chest to provide a slimmer shape. A back lift is often combined with liposuction to create further enhancements by removing unwanted fat tissue. Southern California Center for Surgical Arts has helped many Los Angeles, CA individuals achieve a more contoured shape and a tighter appearance through back lift surgery. Contact us to set up your consultation and learn more.

A back lift performed by Dr. Elias at the Southern California Center for Surgical Arts is a fantastic choice for those with significant excess skin in the mid or upper back areas. Advantages of a back lift at our Sherman Oaks, CA facility include:

  • Removing excess skin from the back
  • Getting rid of surplus fat in the mid and upper back, if necessary
  • Minimizing irritation and other side effects from the rubbing of extra skin
  • More comfort when wearing bras and other clothes
  • Making the contours of the back more toned
  • Boosting confidence and self-esteem
  • Scarring is concealed along the bra line
  • Long-lasting results

At Southern California Center for Surgical Arts, the back lift procedure is performed under general anesthesia and takes about 1 – 2 hours to complete. To begin, Dr. Elias will make an incision across the upper back (along the bra line). Sometimes liposuction is performed to remove extra fat during this time. Excess skin will be cut away and removed, and the remaining skin will be tightened, reattached using sutures, and then bandaged. After a back lift, it's common to experience pain and swelling. Our team will provide instructions on how to care for your surgical bandages as well as prescription medications you can take to alleviate discomfort. While you may be able to get back to your normal activities after six weeks, it could take six months for the full healing process to be complete. For most, the result is a tighter, smoother, more toned back, which offers a confidence boost and the ability to wear different types of clothing.

I took my daughter in for a consult regarding getting her wisdom teeth removed. Everyone was very nice and explained everything in detail. Dr. Pouya is very nice and explained the whole process to us from beginning to end. They were nice enough to schedule her surgery the following week since I wanted her to recover before she went back to school. I am very pleased with the whole office and how well the surgery went. I will definitely recommend Dr. Pouya to anyone needed their wisdom teeth removed.

I had Silicone breast implants by Dr Elias, I went from flat to fab in under an hour, I love my new addition:)I came to Dr Elias as referral from a friend of mine who had hers done by him a few years ago and they still looked fantastic, so I decided to follow him on IG to see his work, it didn’t take long before I booked a consultation with him. He was thorough, knowledgeable and reasonably priced compared to other places I consulted with in the past. I’m extremely happy with my results, post op care was great, he saw me so many times to check the healing of my surgery. I can’t say enough about my results. I love ’em..

My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room.  Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:
