Bra Line Back Lift at CREO Clinic
Bra line back lift is a cosmetic surgery that gets rid of what is commonly called ‘bra bulge’ or ‘back rolls’, the excess folds of skin and fat in the upper back around the bra line. For some patients, the skin laxity may extend down to their waist, while others may have excess skin around their shoulder blades.
Having a bra bulge is a cosmetic concern for many women, especially when wearing a bra and tight clothing that further accentuates the bulge. A bra-line back lift addresses this concern by contouring and restoring the curves of the upper body.
At the CREO clinic, bra line back lifts are performed by Dr Omar Tillo, who specialises in the procedure, along with a range of other body contouring surgeries. As a result, he has the skills and expertise to design a surgical solution that addresses the particular concerns inherent to each patient.
If you are dissatisfied with the excess skin around your bra line, book a consultation with Dr Tillo at the CREO clinic in London to discuss your suitability for a bra line back lift.

Benefits of Bra Line Back Lift
The excess skin and fat bulges in the upper back can develop due to significant fluctuations in weight or the natural ageing process. Bra bulges are a source of insecurity for many people, who want to look their best from all angles and want to feel comfortable wearing tight and high-waisted clothing.
For such patients, a bra line back lift is a beneficial treatment, as it contours the upper back by getting rid of excess skin and fat from the area between the bra line and the waistline. In addition, patients can conceal the resulting scars from the surgery underneath their bra or bikini.
Bra Line Back Lift Cost in London
In general, the price of a bra line back lift in London starts from £9,900. However, as a bespoke procedure, the cost of a bra line back lift varies depending on the surgical needs of each patient. Therefore, you will receive the exact cost of your bra line back lift after you consult with our plastic surgeon.
You will receive sedation or general anaesthesia for your bra line back lift, which lasts between two to five hours. The surgeon starts by making an incision just underneath your bra line. Afterwards, they will remove the excess skin and fat in the area, and in some cases, use liposuction when a significant amount of excess fat is present. Finally, the remaining skin is stretched and stitched back together to close the incision, thus leaving a scar along the bra line, which fades over time.
Bra Line Back Lift Recovery
Immediately after your bra line back lift, you may experience swelling, numbness, and pain in the affected area. Your surgeon will prescribe pain killers and provide a compression garment to minimise the swelling and further contour the area. In general, most patients resume light daily activities within 7-10 days after the procedure when the side effects significantly dissipate. However, it may take between 2- 6 weeks before you can commence more strenuous activities.
By getting rid of excess skin folds, a bra line back lift provides you with a flatter and slimmer upper back, from the bra line to the waistline. You will notice immediate results after your cosmetic surgery. However, it may take up to 6 months before the full effects of your back lift become apparent. By this time, the residual swelling in the area will have largely subsided to reveal a contoured upper back that looks and feels natural.
Bra Line Back Lift and Lower Back Lift
A lower back lift removes excess skin and fat from the lower back and buttocks. In doing so, the surgery provides patients with a slimmer waist and lifts and smoothens the skin in the lower back, buttocks, and outer thigh. Many patients who require a bra line backlift also have excess skin in their lower body that they want to get rid of and therefore combine both procedures for a more dramatic transformation.
Back Lift and Tummy Tuck
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen, and in some cases, tightens the abdominal muscles. As a result, the surgery provides patients with a flatter and toned stomach and a stronger core. As many people develop excess skin and fat in the abdomen, it’s common for patients to combine a backlift with a tummy tuck.
Bra Line Back Lift and Breast Lift
Breast lift, also known as mastopexy, raises sagging breasts by removing excess skin and reshaping the breast tissue. It’s common for patients, especially those who have lost significant amounts of weight, to combine a breast lift with a back lift as they are likely to have lax skin on their back as well as their breasts.
Bra Line Back Lift and Breast Reduction
Breast reduction reduces the size of the breasts by removing breast tissue and reshaping the breasts. Large, heavy breasts are more than a cosmetic concern for some patients, as it leads to a host of physical symptoms, including pain, poor posture, and rashes. Thus, patients with excess skin on their back and disproportionately large breasts often combine a bra line back lift with breast reduction surgery.
Bra Line Back Lift FAQ
Is a back lift permanent?
Yes, a bra line back lift produces permanent results by getting rid of any excess skin and fat on the back. However, you may develop further skin laxity in the area due to the natural ageing process. Furthermore, any fluctuations in your weight can alter the results of the surgery.
Who is a good candidate for a bra line back lift?
Your surgeon will determine your suitability for the surgery during your consultation. In general, most adults with no underlying medical conditions who have excess skin folds between their bra line and waistline are good candidates for the procedure.
Can men get a bra line back lift?
Back rolls are a cosmetic issue that affects both men and women. Therefore, despite its name, a bra line back lift is just as suitable for men who have excess skin on their upper back.
Is bra line back lift worth it?
Many people with bra bulges or back rolls are dissatisfied with its effect on their appearance, especially when wearing tight clothes, and want to attain a contoured figure from all angles. Therefore, bra line back lift is a popular surgery as most patients consider it an ideal solution for permanently getting rid of excess skin folds in their upper to middle back.
