Gynecomastia is a condition that affects more than a third of the total male population in the world. It does not pose a threat to one’s health but it may impose the feeling of humiliation or embarrassment which can impair one’s self-confidence.

Arms become “flabby” with advancing age or major weight loss. Some patients have excess skin ,or excess fat, and many times it’s a combination of both.

There is four different types of brachioplasty which you may consider depending on your individual goals and the severity of your excess skin.
A facelift, or rhytidectomy, lifts and firms sagging tissues in the face and neck, improving the visible signs of aging. Facial aging can stem from a variety of factors, including sun damage, smoking, thinning of the skin, lack of facial fat, as well as heredity and stress. Skin begins to lose elasticity and facial tissue loses volume as we age, causing "jowls" in the lower face and neck. By removing the excess facial skin, facelifts can restore a patient's face to a more natural youthful appearance. If you are bothered by any of these factors, a facelift may be a solution.

Mastopexy, also known as a breast lift, is designed to improve the shape and positions of the breasts that are sagging or appear uneven. The nipple is positioned to its normal location and the tissue of the breasts is redistributed to shape the breasts to a youthful, more pleasing appearance. A mastopexy enhances the breasts by restoring breast projection and improves the shape and symmetry of the breasts. It will not significantly change the size of the breasts unless the breast lift is done in conjunction with a breast augmentation or reduction.

One of the more popular facial cosmetic operations is surgery to change the appearance and or the function of the nose. The operation is called a rhinoplasty and depending on what exactly is done during the operation, it can change the appearance, the function, or both.
