  • Traumatic injuries, like dog bites or burns
  • Trauma caused by disease treatments

Arm lift surgery

An arm lift is a surgical procedure that reshapes the under portion of the upper arm, from the underarm region to the elbow. Arm lifts are performed on both men and women whose elasticity is lost in the skin and underlying tissue of the upper arm. Arm lifts cannot correct weakened muscle. The procedure is generally performed on individuals whose skin has lost the ability to retract, typically seen in those who are unable to correct their condition with exercise and/or have undergone a significant weight loss.

The purpose of an arm lift is to:

  • Reduce excess sagging skin that droops downward when the arm is extended away from the body
  • Tighten and smoothen the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm

In addition, any other pockets of fat in the upper arm area may be reduced through brachioplasty, most commonly in conjunction with liposuction techniques.

Brow lift surgery

Brow lift surgery is done to help patients achieve a younger, more refreshed look by smoothing the forehead, reducing the frown lines and elevating the position of the eyebrow line, helping to restore a more youthful and relaxed appearance. A brow lift can be performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures, such as eyelid surgery or facelift. The procedure is best suited for adult men and women whose facial tissue and muscles are in good condition and who have realistic goals for rejuvenation of the upper face.

Brow lift surgery can be performed through multiple incisions hidden within the hairline or through a single incision in the natural crease of each upper eyelid. If there is significant excess skin in the forehead, a wide incision across the top of the scalp may be performed. Results from a brow lift include:

  • Reduce furrows and other signs of aging in the forehead and brow areas, creating a softer, more relaxed and rejuvenated facial appearance
  • Minimize creases that develop across the forehead, or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose, between the eyes
  • Improve what are commonly referred to as frown lines—vertical creases that develop between the eyebrows
  • Reposition a low or sagging brow that is hooding the upper eyelid
  • Raise the eyebrows to a more alert and youthful position

Cosmetic surgery for men

At the Rose Institute for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we make men a priority by offering only the very best in treatment techniques and procedures. With top plastic surgeons in the region and incomparable services, we understand our male patients’ distinctive needs before, during and after surgery.

More and more men are turning to cosmetic surgery to feel better and look younger. Body improvements, such as pectoral implants, liposuction and nose reshaping are becoming more common for men, as well as eyelid surgery, facelifts and the male tummy tuck.

Cosmetic surgery for men is an art form—what looks best for a man is very different than for a woman. Men need unique procedures done the right way, with more reshaping and recontouring. Women want to reduce flabby thighs and hips; men are more concerned with sagging abdomens and love handles that show as they age. The male tummy tuck is a common procedure that can produce a flatter, tighter and more aesthetically appealing stomach.
