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...

Ask Dr. Danish “I’m getting ready for some big events, and I’d like to look fresh and younger. Are there some quick and easy treatments that will give me good results?” Answer: The answer is “Yes!” – but the recommendation will be very different for each individual, based on age, anatomy and skin type. It all starts with a consultation. When you come in, we’ll discuss your goals and create the right plan for you. Typically, the fi rst step for rejuvenation is injectables, which restore volume to your face that is lost in aging. The result is diminished ‘laugh lines’ and marionette lines, and a lifting of the cheeks. We may also use Botox for the forehead, frown lines or crows feet. Next, a customized laser facial to bring back your youthful glow, while addressing dark spots, spider veins, rosacea and other minor imperfections. This alone will make a marked difference that you and your friends will notice! Finally, we finish with advanced skin care products, often with hyaluronic acid and Retin-A to smooth fi ne lines, minimize pores and provide you a smooth and younger appearance to your skin.

Drooping Eyebrows

Drooping Eyebrows

Q: My drooping eyebrows make me look tired and old. What procedure can turn back the clock and has a quick recovery? A: With aging, the eyebrows start to descend and can cause the upper eyelids to look droopy as well. This is more common in men as they generally have heavier brows. Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Myra Danish says that a minimally invasive brow lift can make a dramatic improvement. “When I raise the brows to a youthful position it lifts the upper eyelid area, opens the eyes and improves the visual field. Patients look natural, more rested and like a younger version of themselves. “The endoscopic brow lift involves five short incisions that are usually hidden in the hair line. Even with a receding hairline, the scars are not very noticeable. The surgery takes about an hour, with typically one week of recovery and without much discomfort.” Every person’s anatomy and aging is unique. You may need a brow lift or an upper eyelid lift alone or a combination of both. Call Dr. Danish to schedule a facial analysis and...
