Sagging underarm fat and skin is a common complaint, particularly among women. Every is predisposed to gain and hold on to weight in specific areas of their bodies- that one area that seems resistant to diet and exercise. Some people who have undergone significant weight loss that they should be enjoying are instead left with excess, hanging skin. In the natural aging process our skin loses its elasticity, what keeps it tight, which also can cause a sagging appearance. If you are frustrated with your underarms, you may be a good candidate for Brahioplasty, also known as an Arm lift.
An Arm Lift procedure is exactly as it sounds. This procedure removes the excess skin from under the arm. In some cases Liposuction may also be employed to removed fat from the underarm area. Ideal candidates for Brachioplasty are in good health, in a normal, healthy weight-range and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure. Brachioplasty cannot give you the results of the arms of someone else, but it can give you a tighter, more contoured version of your own arms.
Boston Blepharoplasty removes the excess skin and fat around the eyes to create a more youthful and vital appearance. Both upper and lower eyelids can evolve in ways that we don’t like as we get older. Fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and puffiness can make us looking more tired and older than we actually feel. In some cases, the excess skin is so extreme as to hinder sight. Through Boston Blepharoplasty, or Eyelid Lift, the eyes can be revitalized so that your true light shines through.

One of the most common plastic surgery procedures in the United States each year, Liposuction can benefit both men and women who struggle with localized pockets of fat. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, rather it is best designed for people who are in otherwise good shape and at a healthy weight, but have a stubborn, concentrated area which has been virtually immune to diet and exercise. Everyone has pre-determined trouble areas, for some of us itís our abdomen, for other hips, thighs or knees or the arms. Liposuction can easily treat each of these areas and more. In fact, liposuction can pretty much be used anywhere on the body.
You will want to consult with a skilled board certified plastic surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure. In some cases liposuction coupled with another body contouring procedure may be required to achieve the desired results. For example, if your skin has poor elasticity, is loose or hanging in the abdominal area which you want liposuction, a liposuction coupled with a Tummy Tuck may be recommended. Likewise a in the thighs, a Thigh Lift with liposuction, etc.

Large ears or ears that stick out from the sides of the head can be the root of cruel teasing, especially among peers and kids. From young kids through adolescence and on up to adulthood can suffer from feeling self-conscious about their ears. Dr. Jeffrey Darrow has helped countless children and adults alike improve the appearance of their prominent ears through Boston Otoplasty, also known as Ear Pinning.
Otoplasty can improve ears by repositioning them closer to the side of the head or even removing or re-shaping the cartilage of the ear to create a smaller or more symmetrical or proportionate ear shape. Generally, this procedure is safe to be performed on kids as young as 4 or 5 years old and up and usually takes about 2 to 3 hours to complete. Incisions can be easily hidden behind the ear so that patients are left with no visible scars.

Many women, particularly later in age, after weight loss or pregnancy and breastfeeding, find themselves dissatisfied with the direction their breasts have begun to head in. All of these factors, as well as genetics, contribute to causing breasts to sag. While there is no one answer for each woman, many women have chosen to undergo a Breast Lift procedure to restore their breasts to a more youthful appearance.
During a Breast Lift procedure an incision- the size and shape of which will be specifically determined depending on the amount of lift necessary- is made around the areola area. The areola and nipple are typically left intact to their original blood supply and nerves. The excess skin which is sagging is removed and the breast is re-positioned higher. The areola is also generally repositioned higher to match the newly positioned breasts. In some cases the areola may also be re-shaped or re-sized, then the remaining skin is closed around the areola creating perkier, more youthful and firmer breasts.

As we age our skin begins to lose elasticity and fat, which keeps it looking healthy, tight, alert and youthful. The skin, particularly around the eyes, is vulnerable to wrinkles, creases and sagging. These days there are many options for rejuvenating the skin of our eyelids, one of the most effective and popular treatments is Blepharoplasty.
Boston Blepharoplasty, also known as Eyelid Lift surgery, is a procedure which removes excess skin and tightens the skin of the eyelids to reduce wrinkles, sagging and lower-lid bags. Scars are minimal to completely hidden in the natural creases of the eye so that there are no tell-tale signs of the procedure. Often Blepharoplasty is done in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as Brow Lift, Face Lift and Dermal Fillers.

We all have areas of our bodies that seem to resist our diet and exercise efforts. For some men and women this area is the mid-section, the buttocks, the arms or the thighs. Thighs tend to be a particularly troublesome region for women especially in the summer when shorts and swimwear come into play. Some women go so far as to alter their clothing options due to thigh insecurity, cutting out shorts all together. Thighs that have excess sagging skin can be improved through Thigh Lift surgery.
Thigh Lift surgery is a procedure to smooth and tighten the skin of the thighs. If there is excess stubborn fat in the thigh region as well, a Thigh Lift surgery can be paired with a Liposuction procedure to produce optimal results. If you are interested in pulling those shorts out of the back shelf and back into contention, contact our office to schedule a consultation and find out if a Thigh Lift may be right for you.
Very large breasts can be painful for a number of physical and psychological reasons. Medical problems can range from back, neck, and shoulder pain to headaches, and irritation or infection of the skin under the breasts. However, Dr. Darrow understands that the psychological effects of possessing excessively large breasts can sometimes be even more devastating. Extreme self-consciousness, difficulty finding clothes that fit, and unsolicited attention can all take their toll on a person’s well being. At our Boston area practice, breast reduction surgery also known as mammaplasty, is highly successful in treating all these symptoms. Usually involving the removal of excess breast tissue as well as the lifting of the breast for an improved shape, this procedure can produce incredible results.
