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...

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...
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...

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...

What types of laser treatments will give me smoother skin with no downtime?

Q: What types of laser treatments will give me smoother skin with no downtime? A: There have been major advances in permanent laser hair removal that make treatments quick, essentially painless, and without downtime, says facial cosmetic surgeon Dr. Myra Danish. M.D., F.A.C.S. “The old lasers used to hurt quite a bit and there was a higher risk for adverse skin reactions like scarring and discoloration. We use the Lumenis LightSheer laser which is much more comfortable,” she says. “The laser treats all skin types and can remove hair permanently from all parts of the body, including sensitive areas like the bikini line. We can treat larger areas like the back or the legs within 20 minutes. This advanced technology allows for no scarring or discoloration and produces great results, with smooth, hairless skin after about six treatment sessions. “Laser photo facials also have no downtime or risk of scarring and can help with  discoloration, including redness, and help with regenerating collagen, minimizing pores and fine lines, and reducing acne breakouts by killing bacteria in the skin,” Dr. Danish explains. “We do about six treatment sessions, and afterwards, you have smoother, healthier, glowing skin.” Dr. Danish recommends a facial analysis and consultation to determine the treatment options that will help her patients look younger and fresher and will give them the very best...
