Dr. Weintraub Shares 4 Trending Cosmetic Procedures with The Daily Mail
As one of the top New York City plastic surgeons, Dr. Barry M. Weintraub is often asked for his expert opinion on the latest and most effective treatments. In a recent article for the British news website TheDailyMail.com, Dr. Weintraub reveals four of the most sought-after cosmetic procedures at his Manhattan practice this spring. Here’s a hint: all four are above the neck.
Often, when we think about facial rejuvenation, a facelift may be the first procedure to come to mind. While an excellent surgical option for those over 45, younger patients are desiring changes to the face that do not require such impactful surgery. Dr. Weintraub shares these four procedures that target specific areas of the face.
Buccal Fat Removal
Buccal fat removal, also known as the removal of “Bichat’s pads,” has been quite popular to create a more angular face. The key is to know how much fat to remove to create definition without leaving the patient looking skeletonized. This procedure removes a “spoonful” of fat from the patient’s cheeks to produce more angularity to the face.
Working in the same area but in a different way is another popular treatment — cheekbone filler. This enhancement often uses hyaluronic acid or other medical-grade fillers to add volume to the malar prominence via injections, which can be performed in a treatment room with little or no downtime.
For patients interested in younger-looking skin, the trend of radiofrequency microneedling is gaining in popularity. By creating tiny punctures in the skin via microscopic needles that transmit RF currents, new collagen growth is stimulated which tightens the skin to create a smoother complexion.
Fox & Bedroom Eye Lifts
To give slight angularity to the brows and to create sensuous upper eyelids, a Bedroom Eye Lift™ is a surgical procedure that patients request. A Fox Eye Lift or a PDO thread lift can have a similar effect if not taken to the extreme.
