What are the new trends in cosmetic procedures?

Q: What are the new trends in cosmetic procedures? A: Minimally invasive, no downtime or short downtime procedures have been the trend for the past several years, says facial plastic surgeon Dr. Myra Danish. “For people who are candidates, we tend to perform a mini-facelift instead of a facelift. The popularity of a coronal brow lift has switched to the less invasive endoscopic forehead lift,” Dr. Danish points out. “We’re trending toward more longer-lasting fillers that give a good result, with little or no side effects. The latest product is Bellafill®, an injectable collagen filler containing microscopic permanent beads. Bellafill® adds volume, corrects smile lines, and results can last up to 5 years. “The trend with lasers and other technology for noninvasive facial and body contouring, skin tightening and hair removal, is that they’re more comfortable and effective than in the past.” As each person’s anatomy, skin type and cosmetic wishes are unique, it’s best to schedule a consultation with Dr. Danish to learn your options and the expected...

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.

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...

Q: My lower face and neck is starting to look saggy. Is there an effective treatment that doesn’t require a lengthy recovery? A: For patients who are noticing loose skin in the neck and jawline, and jowls that are beginning to form, the ideal remedy is a minilift, says facial plastic surgeon Dr. Myra Danish. “The minilift is a one-hour surgery that doesn’t require general anesthesia. Local anesthesia is required and patients are made more comfortable with mild oral sedation. In one-hour, I am able tighten the muscles and remove excess skin to give you a sharp jawline and a smooth neck. “This is an extremely popular procedure as it is far less invasive than a facelift; patients go home the same day. The downtime is about a week with some bruising and swelling that can easily be disguised with your hair and a scarf. Most patients can go about their daily activities because the discomfort is minimal.” Each person’s facial anatomy and degree of aging differ. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Danish to learn the best treatment options to restore your natural...
