An upper body lift is needed whenever a massive weight loss patient presents with a "dropped out" lateral inframammary crease. It is a combination of a brachioplasty, upper-back resection, and breast reconstruction. The operation is designed to reverse the particular deformity a patient presents with. This article describes three patterns of resection, one for males and two for females.
