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.

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...

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...

How can I look ten years younger in just one hour?

Q: How can I look ten years younger in just one hour? A: The one-hour Lunchtime Lift™ is a popular in-office, mid-face lift that rejuvenates the “triangle” – the lower eyelids, cheeks, laugh lines and jowls. “The procedure restores the natural curves and youthful fullness of the face, turning back the clock more than a decade,” says facial plastic surgeon Dr. Myra Danish. “It requires minimal recovery time and produces immediate, long-lasting results.” With the injectable Lunchtime Lift™, Dr. Danish uses a range of FDA-approved injectables to help her patients look ten years younger in less than an hour and with little to no downtime. “I generally inject fillers into the cheeks, the laugh lines, and the chin area, and under the eyes, if needed. Some patients may require Botox for forehead wrinkles, frown lines or crow’s feet,” she says. “I perform all of the injections myself so my patients will look rejuvenated and natural, not like they’ve had surgery or injections.” Dr. Danish recommends a facial analysis and consultation if you are thinking about having a cosmetic procedure. “Every woman’s facial anatomy, skin type and degree of aging differ, and one procedure does not fit all. We discuss the treatment options that will help the patient look younger and fresher and will give them the very best...

How can I look younger without having surgery?

Q: How can I look younger without having surgery? A: “There are excellent noninvasive and non-surgical interventions that will make you look up to 10 years younger,” says facial plastic surgeon Dr. Myra Danish who sees more and more men seeking rejuvenating treatments. “For men who have deep frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet, I recommend Botox injections about every 4 months which will cause the muscles to relax and the lines to disappear. “A lot of men have deep indentations in their lower eyelids due to a loss of collagen. These ‘tear troughs’ make them look fatigued and aged. Injecting a filler will make the lower lids look more rested and more youthful. “Laugh lines, marionette lines, loss of volume and flattening of the cheeks can be addressed with injections that cause a lifting of the face which looks natural and masculine, and not like you’ve had intervention,” adds Dr. Danish.  “Some men have bands in their neck which also can be remedied with Botox. “The finishing touch can be laser treatments to make the skin glow and remedy age spots, redness and fine...
