Already more than 25.000 of our former, current and future patients joined our online community with the aim to build a space for opinions and mutual support. Members are welcome to share experiences about their visit to the clinic and to discuss all surgery-related matters.
Despite the size of the clinic we provide our patients with personal care and assistance. The majority of big public hospitals due to high volume of patients do not have enough resources and medical personnel to pay personal attention to each patient. Whereas we are fully focused on providing exceptional care and undivided attention for our patients.
Without any additional fees patients are tended in the clinic as long as they need. It may take up to 3 days. We only discharge our patients from the clinic when they are in a good health state and ready to leave.

Apartments are located in the centre of Kaunas and most importantly, right next to our new clinic, in the same building (1 min by foot) and are provided with additional medical care (the nurse visits a patient at least once a day after discharge from the clinic), which is not possible while staying in a hotel or other accommodation.
All inclusive price, which is twice lower than in Western European clinics. Our clinic works with medical professionals of the highest education and experience level and uses the same materials as the clinics in Western Europe. More often than not, the quality of our clinic‘s facilities exceed the ones in Western European clinics. The price difference is only due to considerably lower average salaries and taxes – which is the main reason for medical travel everywhere around the world.
What is upper back lift surgery?
Significant weight loss in a short period of time may create effects on the skin that are cosmetically and functionally unappealing. The overall upper back deformity, which includes laxity of the skin, excess body fat accumulation and redundant lateral breast tissue can be corrected with an upper back lift, also known as bra line back lift. Upper back lift is a consistent and reliable body contouring procedure, during which both the excess skin and subcutaneous fat from the upper back are removed in order to restore natural firmness of the skin and normal waistline definition. The procedure involves making two separate horizontal incisions across the back and excising the skin as well as excess adipose tissue in-between them. Incisions are made in the upper back area which is usually covered by bra straps, therefore, a subtle post-operative scar may be easily hidden, and it does not tend to move from its original position as the wound heals. All things considered, transverse upper body lift is a powerful tool that delivers consistent and safe results. It is beneficial for both normal weight and massive weight loss patients who have experienced weight fluctuations and subsequent skin laxity. Complications related to this procedure are rare and can usually be managed by wound care or minor revision.
Who is a proper candidate for this surgery? What are the indications?
How upper back lift is different from lower back lift?
Compared to lower back lift, also known as buttocks lift, upper body lift is a less radical procedure which involves removing extra tissue only from the upper-middle back. In contrast, lower back lift reshapes the patient’s outer thighs, buttocks, lower back as the incisions extend above the buttocks. Lower back lift is performed for a more profound restoration of the silhouette and is recommended for patients with notably droopy skin in both the buttock area and the lower back region. However, it requires prolonged recovery time and may be associated with a greater risk of perioperative complications and post-op wound infection.
Preparation for upper back lift
In order to properly prepare for upper back lift surgery, one should follow strict pre-operative instructions:
Recovery after upper back lift
A smooth and successful recovery after upper back lift takes time and patience.
General recovery takes up to 6-8 weeks. During that time one should refrain from strenuous activities involving upper body, e.g. forcefully abducting one’s arms etc., as it may put pressure on the incision sites.
Can upper back lift be combined with other procedures?
Upper back lift may be performed together with liposuction for even more prominent results. In order to determine whether these procedures could be combined, one’s anatomical and physiological characteristics such as BMI etc. should be evaluated by a qualified plastic surgeon. It is worth noting that in order to avoid a greater risk of infection and a higher perioperative complication rate, upper back lift is not performed together with any other surgical procedures, f ex breast reduction or breast augmentation.
What to expect during perioperative period
When upper back lift is already performed, only a few more things should be taken care of for a smoother recovery:
It is absolutely normal to feel pain for up to 2 weeks after the procedure. It should be managed with prescribed medication depending on the pain intensity.
Patients are strongly discouraged from consuming alcohol and using tobacco products, especially while taking any kind of prescribed drugs after the surgery, as it may provoke some toxic side effects and complications may develop.
For the first 4 weeks after the surgery it is recommended to refrain from doing vigorous exercises. However, light physical activity has a significant positive effect on blood circulation and, therefore, induces tissue healing.
It is advised to wear loose fitting clothes they are easier to put on and take off.
