Question: 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? Answer: 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...

Ask Dr. Danish Even with plenty of sleep, I still look tired – my eyes never look really awake anymore. I’m just 40, but my eyes make me look much older. Is this common, and what can I do about it? Answer: For both men and women, the first visible signs of aging can appear in the eye area. Beginning in your 30’s, you may notice droopy hooded upper lids and wrinkled skin on the lower lids. This instantly communicates a lack of vitality and adds years to even the youngest faces. You might also notice the eyebrows sinking a bit, giving you an angry or serious expression. Together, these two areas can create an older and tired look well beyond your actual years. Fortunately there are effective solutions that are so natural, nobody will ever guess you’ve had anything done. In the right hands, you will simply look refreshed, rested and naturally younger than your friends or colleagues! For the lids, the best solution is called Blepharoplasty – surgery to tighten the upper and / or lower eyelids. It has little discomfort or ‘down time’, and the incisions heal so well that no one will guess your secret! Most people say it takes more than a decade off their appearance, restoring the clear bright eyes they had in their youth. For the brows, we often have good results with Botox, which can slightly lift the brow and remove that furrowed look. It has the added benefit of smoothing lines in the forehead. For brows that have sagged below the bony rim of your eye area, we perform endoscopic...

Ask Dr. Danish “I’ve tried twenty different ‘solutions’ for hair removal. It’s not that my hair is so bad, it’s that the treatments either don’t work, are too expensive, or are just too uncomfortable. Is there a real solution for unwanted hair? Answer: Over the years, we’ve all seen results promised but not delivered when it comes to hair removal. If the treatment was effective, it had the downside of pain, cost, time or serious irritation to your skin. If it was quick, easy and affordable, it didn’t produce good results. UNTIL NOW. I’m so excited to introduce you to LightSheer Duet. My colleagues around the country agree that we finally have an effective permanent solution with excellent results and a pleasant experience for our patients. This technology was designed solely for hair removal, using pulses of energy to damage the hair follicle without any impact on the surrounding skin. It’s cool and comfortable, so we’re now able to treat large areas like the back and legs more quickly than ever before. For sensitive skin and delicate areas like the bikini area or underarms, the results are fast and effective without the irritation other treatments often produced. Unwanted hair is not just a cosmetic issue – it can be uncomfortable, and often can impact your self confidence. I’ve met with men and women who didn’t feel sexy anymore, who dreaded spring and summer, and worse – who had damaged their skin with harsh treatments that did more harm than good. Say goodbye to unwanted hair forever – and to ineffective treatments. Come in today, and say hello to silky...

Question: “I admit it- I look in the mirror and pull up my face to see how much better I’d look with a facelift. I’m beginning to think it’s time – but when is the right time? Is it better to do it early?” Answer: The big news is this: we’ve taken the fear out of the facelift! Gone are the days of the pulled, unnatural looking facelift. Today, in the right hands, you’ll look soft and natural, with a smooth and youthful appearance. No one should ever look at you and detect that you’ve had a facelift – only that you look fabulous! A facelift addresses the neck, jawline and mid face, bringing back the defi nition that years have taken away. The mini-lift corrects the early signs of aging, but is less effective for more advanced aging of the neck and jowls. During your consultation, we’ll discuss the benefi ts of both procedures. You’ll want to consider the immediate results, and also the benefi ts over the long term; the work you do today will impact how you age over the next decade. Here is my advice about the right time for a procedure: when something about your appearance catches your attention repeatedly, that’s the signal to take steps to change it. There are benefi ts to taking action early – faster healing and better muscle tone aid in the recovery time. You should never wait one minute longer than you want to, or act one minute earlier than you are...

Ask Dr. Danish “We have some big events coming up, and we’d both like a little ‘refresher’ to get rid of the winter blahs. Are there some quick and easy treatments we both can do that have good results without any ‘down time’?” Answer: Valentines Day is approaching, and love is in the air! There is a growing trend for couples to have cosmetic procedures done together. I find working with couples can bring you closer together, as you share your expectations and help each other choose the right direction to take. Of course, men and women show the signs of aging differently, and we’ve all heard men referred to as ‘distinguished’ while women are just called ‘older’! Despite the difference in societal expectations, both men and women can benefit equally from cosmetic procedures. Women are more aware of sun protection and skin care, so often men need to catch up to their wives in that area. We address sun spots and discoloration, and select products for daily cleansing and moisturizing. Men often need more assistance in the eye area and brows, from simple botox treatments to eye lifts and brow lifts for more complete results. Both men and women experience a loss in facial volume and skin elasticity with age. These can be addressed with injectable fi llers, cheek or chin implants, or mini-lifts to create a more youthful appearance. When couples share the experience together, it’s amazing how supportive and excited they are for each other! It can restore some of the zest in your relationship, creating a new bond from the shared experience. You can be...
