WHAT IS IDEAL TORSOPLASTY ?
It is a procedure done to remove excess skin and fat tissue from the lower back, which has been generated by weight loss. Torsoplasty procedure is different from back liposuction.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE?
Torsoplasty is ideal for people with excess skin in their back, after losing weight due to multiple pregnancies, obesity or aging.
Torsoplasty surgery usually takes between 4 and 5 hours, and it is done under general anesthesia. It is an outpatient procedure. During the surgery, the surgeon makes a horizontal incision in the lower back to remove excess fat tissue and skin. The resulting scar may be easily concealed beneath the underwear or bathing suit.
During the recovery process, patients may feel a bit of discomfort in the area, but it will improve over time. Intense physical activity should be avoided for 4 or 6 weeks. After such time, activity may be resumed normally.
Torsoplasty results are immediate. There may be swelling during the first days, but it will progressively fade away. The final result of the procedure will be visible between 3 and 4 months after the surgery.
The cost of torsoplasty is usually $7,000, but it may vary according to each patient’s individual needs.
