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 sooner.”
Eyes, Before and After
Q: I just know there is a better version of me hiding underneath these little lines and wrinkles. I sleep, I exercise, but still I look tired. Even a few years ago I thought plastic surgery was just for vain people – but the older I get, the more it starts to make sense. Where do I start?
A: My advice? Give yourself permission to be your best self. Some people feel embarrassed about having a cosmetic procedure, until they see the results! As women, we often are willing to take care of others before we care of ourselves. I encourage you to realize that the most important person in your life is you. When you are at your best, everyone around you will benefit.
You described it perfectly when you said “a better version of me” – that is exactly what we achieve here every day. For both men and women, our goal is for you to look and feel your best, looking naturally younger and more vibrant. I’ve come to understand that a face-lift can truly be a “life-lift”, restoring your self confidence and zest for life. It all starts with a simple concept: You deserve to be the best you possible. Or simply put: love yourself.
Q: Dr. Danish, how can I bring back the full lips I had in my younger years? They seem to get thinner and straighter every year.
A: It’s true! Full lips create a soft and appealing look at every age, and thinner lips make you look older and less vibrant than you feel. Whether smiling or in repose, our lips tell our age as much as any other feature.
As we age, our lips lose volume. This creates a drawn appearance and emphasizes the lines on the lips and around the mouth. Nobody wants that! Often we’re afraid to seek out solutions because we see actors or models with overdone lips, and it discourages us from addressing this important facial feature.
Full and natural lips are completely possible with the techniques available today. We replace lost volume in your lips using non-surgical solutions done right here in our office. The skill and experience of the doctor is essential to achieve the natural look and feel you want – one that is appropriate to your own unique facial structure.
These treatments can be done in one visit, and results can last a year or longer. My patients are very enthusiastic about the results. If you seek a more permanent solution, we’ll discuss lip implants. These are extremely soft and pliable, and look great with no visible signs you’ve had any facial enhancements.
