Does surgery take the place of fillers?

Q: Does surgery take the place of fillers?  A: According to facial plastic surgeon Dr. Myra Danish, it’s a misconception that surgery and fillers are interchangeable. Operations such as her lunchtime lift (mid-face lift) or cheek implants will add volume in the cheek area but not to the temples, tear troughs and chin. Layering different treatments gives you the most youthful, natural and best appearance. Aging is a multi-dimensional process that includes loss of volume, decreased skin elasticity and the effects of gravity and hyperactive muscles. Dr. Danish addresses every element of the aging process using the best and simplest procedures for optimal results. “In general, for hyperactive muscles and lines you can consider injections like Botox. For loss of volume, the simplest solution is fillers or implants. In the mid-face, however, you might consider surgery or implants and then, possibly, fillers in other parts of the face,” Dr. Danish points out. “Surgery can address the effects of gravity and loss of skin elasticity, especially for the neck and jawline, brows and eyelids. The last ‘layer’ is skin care with customized laser facials and medical grade anti-aging facial products.” Each person’s facial anatomy and degree of aging differ.

August 2018 – A Sizzling Summer Starts with Hot Lips.

Q: Dr. Danish, how can I bring back the full lips I had in my younger years? They seem to get thinner and straighter every year. A: At any age, full lips create a soft and appealing appearance. Thinner lips, though, can make us look older and less vibrant than we feel. Whether smiling or in repose, our lips tell our age as much as any other feature. As we age, our lips lose volume. This creates a more drawn appearance, and more pronounced lines on the lips and around the mouth. Over the years, we’ve all seen those few famous actresses with overdone lips – and this has discouraged many women (and men) from addressing this important facial feature. Natural full lips are completely possible with the techniques available today. In office, nonsurgical solutions can replace lost volume. The skill and experience of the doctor is essential to achieve the natural look and feel appropriate to your own unique facial structure. These treatments can last a year or longer, and my patients are very enthusiastic about the results. A more permanent solution is lip implants. Today’s implants are extremely soft and pliable, and look great with no visible signs that you’ve had anything...

July 2018 – Be All You Can Be

Q: Dr. Danish, I’ve always been told my nose gave me “character”. As I get older, it seems more pronounced – Is this a normal part of aging? Are ‘nose jobs’ just for teenagers? What are my options? A: I love this question! Many people think that rhinoplasty (“a nose job”) is just for younger people, to correct an obviously mismatched size or shape. With aging, the nasal support systems including the cartilage weaken, resulting in droopy tips, lengthening or flattening and other changes. Also, the natural loss of volume in your face can make your nose seem more pronounced. What was a small flaw can become a major source of dissatisfaction. Young or old, you want your nose to flatter your face – after all, it is the center of your face and the hallmark of your profile. When any facial feature is disproportionate, it throws off the natural balance and detracts from your appearance. Your beautiful eyes or vibrant smile can be overshadowed by a crooked or misshapen nose. And yes, it can make you look older. With rhinoplasty, noses can be straightened, made smaller, bumps removed and tips lifted, resulting in a more shapely, youthful and complimentary centerpoint for your face. The most important considerations are: an experienced surgeon, an analysis of your unique nasal structure and function, and a thorough consultation to understand your desired result. My approach is to create facial balance and harmony, resulting in a nose that fits and flatters your face well and never looks surgically altered. If your nose has been bothering you and it’s worsening with age, don’t put...

How can I look younger, but not like I’ve had work done?

Q: How can I look younger, but not like I’ve had work done?  A: Each year, facial plastic surgeon Dr. Myra Danish sees more and more men who are coming in for rejuvenating treatments. “My injectable Lunchtime Lift™ is really popular with men because they can look 10 years younger in less than an hour, with little or no downtime. I use fillers to put volume back in the cheeks, temples, laugh lines, marionette lines and hollows underneath the eyes,” Dr. Danish explains. “You look natural and masculine, like a younger version of yourself.” No-downtime laser facial treatments help to regenerate collagen, minimize fine lines and correct discoloration, including redness. Men also are coming in for brow lifts and upper and lower eyelid lifts. “My one-hour Lunchtime Lift™ is a mid-face lift that rejuvenates the lower eyelids, cheeks, laugh lines and jowls. It produces immediate, long-term results,” Dr. Danish says. “I customize the facelift depending on the patient’s anatomy, skin type and aging, so I need to see the gentleman for a...
