Q: What facial plastic surgery procedure will take the greatest number of years off my appearance and has a quick recovery?

Q: What facial plastic surgery procedure will take the greatest number of years off my appearance and has a quick recovery?  A: An upper and lower eyelid lift can make a woman look up to 20 years younger, says facial plastic surgeon Dr. Myra Danish. “When people are talking to you, they are looking at your eyes. If you have droopy, hooded upper lids and bags and sagging skin in the lower lids, it gives the impression that you are tired or older than you are,” Dr. Danish points out. “Eyelid surgery takes about an hour. I remove the excess skin and under eye puffiness that has accumulated over time. Recovery is typically one week with some bruising and swelling, but with little discomfort. Patients go back to work in a week.” For some women, sagging upper eyelid skin can obstruct their peripheral vision. Eyelid surgery not only makes you look significantly younger, it can improve your visual fields, and your eyes will feel less tired. In Dr. Danish’s hands, your eyelid shape remains the same and your eyes look very natural, rejuvenated and youthful. “People will say, ‘You look amazing.’ But they won’t be able to tell that you’ve had surgery,” Dr. Danish adds. “The beauty of eyelid lift surgery is, generally, you need the procedure only once during your lifetime.  Most of my patients say, ‘I wish I had done this...

October 2018 – Beautiful Skin!

Q: Dr. Danish, my skin is looking more tired every year. How can I bring back the complexion I had in my younger years? A: Oh the things we take for granted! The quality of your complexion is under attack every day, as your skin is exposed to the elements, harsh environments, cosmetics, stress, nutrition and even poor sleep. Each one of these compromises the look and texture of your skin, particularly on your face, neck and hands. Year after year, these take a toll on the natural glow and elasticity of your skin. The good news is, we have a terrific set of procedures to restore the youthful appearance of your skin, visibly turning back the clock! Each treatment is carefully matched to your own unique set of challenges, based on an in-depth analysis of your skin and your desired outcome. For more complete results, many patients choose laser resurfacing, chemical peels or dermabrasion. We also have a full menu of less invasive procedures with little to no ‘downtime’ including laser facials, radio frequency skin tightening/ contouring and microneedling. “If you’d like to look younger, but surgery is just not for you – there is good news! Start today and enjoy the fall season looking and feeling your best.” – Myra Danish, MD, FACS...
I’d like to look younger and fresher. What surgical treatments are less invasive than a traditional facelift and have a shorter recovery?

I’d like to look younger and fresher. What surgical treatments are less invasive than a traditional facelift and have a shorter recovery?

Q: I’d like to look younger and fresher. What surgical treatments are less invasive than a traditional facelift and have a shorter recovery?  A: If you are noticing loose skin in your neck and jawline, and jowls that are beginning to form, the ideal remedy is a minilift, says facial plastic surgeon Dr. Myra Danish. “In this one-hour surgery I am able to tighten the muscles and remove excess skin to give you a sharp jawline and a smooth neck.  The minilift is an extremely popular procedure as it doesn’t require general anesthesia and patients go home the same day. Downtime is about one week, with minimal discomfort and some bruising and swelling that can easily be disguised with your hair and a scarf.” The one-hour Lunchtime Lift™ is an in-office, mid-face lift that rejuvenates the lower eyelids, cheeks, laugh lines and jowls. “This procedure restores the natural curves and fullness in the cheeks and face, turning back the clock more than a decade,” Dr. Danish explains. “It requires minimal recovery time and produces immediate, long-lasting results.” Schedule a consultation with Dr. Danish to discuss the best treatment options to restore your natural, youthful...

September 2018 – Be Fabulous at Any 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 is...
Does surgery take the place of fillers?

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. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Danish to learn the best treatment options for complete and natural looking facial...

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?

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...

June 2018 – SMOOTH, BEAUTIFUL SKIN CAN BE YOURS AGAIN.

Q: Dr. Danish – I’m not a jealous person, but I find myself envying other women my age with clear beautiful skin. I’ve ignored those little red spots and spider veins over the years, and it’s all starting to add up. Now in my 40’s, I’m also dealing with hair removal and I’m at my breaking point! How do I get my younger smoother skin back? A : What makes us look older? Often it’s the little imperfections that we leave untreated, until they add up to an older appearance. The spider veins that become a network of marks on your legs… That bothersome hair that you’ve shaved and waxed and plucked but never really addressed… The redness that once was minor but now has become more noticeable than you’d like. All of this can be addressed with new laser technology right in our offices, with comfortable and affordable new treatments. My patients are particularly excited about laser technologies dealing specifically with redness and spider veins, pigmentation and age spots and excess hair anywhere on the body. Our new lasers provide safe and effective treatment, using specific wavelengths to target these issues quickly with little or no downtime. And it’s not just for women anymore! Men are equally concerned about their appearance, and I’ve designed our offices to ensure both men and women feel very comfortable here. Laser hair removal is particularly popular with men, and is a great first step to introduce them to our full range of services. Warmer weather puts your skin on display, and we have excellent new treatments for skin tightening and contouring for...
