September 2017 – Be Fabulous at Every Age

Whether you are 35 or 75, you want to look young and vibrant. Today, there are steps we can take to slow and yes, reverse the signs of aging! Our goal is to manage the aging process so you are at your best at every age. Gravity, loss of volume and loss of elasticity are the main culprits, and all of these are addressed with effective treatments and procedures performed in our office with minimal down-time and virtually no discomfort. The big news is this: we’ve taken the fear out of the facelift! Gone are the days of the pulled, unnatural looking facelift. Now, in the right hands, you’ll look soft and natural with a smooth and youthful appearance. There are three types of ‘lifts’ available to you, each designed for a specific desired result. The Minilift corrects the early signs of aging in the neck and jowls, and actually improves the way you age over time. This is particularly effective for those in their 40s and 50s, when faster healing and better muscle tone aid in a quick recovery time. The Lunchtime Lift addresses the mid-face area, gently lifting the cheeks, jowls and lower eyelids to restore the natural curves and fullness in your face. This creates both an immediate and long lasting youthful appearance, and slows the effects of gravity over time. The full Facelift addresses the neck, jawline and mid face, bringing back the definition that years have taken away. Our techniques today allow for a completely natural look that is both fresh and age appropriate, never looking pulled or artificial. “Looking naturally young and beautiful...
Full Face Lift VS Mini Lift

Full Face Lift VS Mini Lift

WHAT IS A FULL FACELIFT AND WHEN IS IT RECOMMENDED VERSUS A MINI-LIFT? Dr. Danish “A full facelift is extensive surgery that involves the face below the eyelids, as well as the jawline and neck. It gives the best result possible,” says facial plastic surgeon Dr. Myra Danish, M.D., F.A.C.S. “Generally, a full facelift is recommended if you have a lot of hanging skin in the mid-portion of the neck, you have heavy jowls, and your neck doesn’t have a sharp angle under the chin,” she explains. “A mini-lift is a short version of a facelift and is recommended for people who have early signs of aging with minimal jowling and looseness in the neck. Both surgeries are ideal for the appropriate...

How can I achieve a natural, harmonious, more youthful look?

Q: How can I achieve a natural, harmonious, more youthful look?     A: Sometimes people think that one procedure will answer all of the issues that come with aging. In reality, aging is a multidimensional, multifactorial process, says facial plastic surgeon Dr. Myra Danish, M.D., F.A.C.S. “I recommend, first of all, that you take care of issues that have to do with gravity and skin laxity. If you have droopy eyelids, bags under your eyes, jowls or a lot of loose skin in your neck, in general, the answer is a surgical procedure. “As each year goes by we lose volume in terms of fat and collagen, so your face becomes flat and you develop laugh lines and marionette lines. Having surgery does not replace the need for injectables, which are generally recommended for volume loss,” Dr. Danish explains. “The last factor is skin care. You should consider using good skin products and having procedures such as facials, glycolic peals or laser facials. “The answer to having a natural harmonious look is considering surgery when it’s appropriate, considering fillers or injections when it’s appropriate, and taking good care of your skin.” Dr. Danish recommends a facial analysis and consultation to determine the treatment options that will give you the very best, natural-looking...

August 2017 – 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, non-surgical 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...
