Combining facelifts with fat transfer is Dr. Dilip D. Madnani’s favorite procedure to perform to completely rejuvenate the face. “The aging process occurs due to two primary reasons,” says the double board-certified facial plastic surgeon. “Starting in our 30s, we lose volume in our face—under our eyes, in our cheeks and around our mouths. Later on in our 40s and 50s, our skin and muscles start to stretch from loss of collagen and elastin. The combination of a natural volumizing procedure, such as fat transfer, with a facelift or necklift, addresses common causes of facial aging in one sitting and allows patients to enjoy the most beautiful, natural-looking results for the longest amount of time.” Dr. Madnani is also the founder of Cosmetic Healthcare Group, which specializes in noninvasive procedures to tone, tighten and rejuvenate using the latest and most proven technologies.

About My Practice

Do you encourage patients to take any supplements pre- or post-procedure?

I recommend that my patients take vitamin C, bromelain and arnica montana. I also suggest that they use post-surgery topicals, such as arnica or PureHealPlus (purehealplus.com), a scar-reducing gel that I codeveloped.

How do you educate patients?

I give monthly seminars on the “Aging Face” and current techniques in facial plastic surgery. I also regularly post answers to patients’ questions or comments to recent news on my Facebook and Twitter. Patients are grateful for the information and the better understanding they have on how we age.

What makes your practice distinct?

My treatments are tailored to the specific patient’s needs and what would most benefit them. There is no “one size fits all” approach with me. Nowadays, my patients look for alternatives to traditional approaches with reduced recovery times and natural results, so I do not perform procedures using general anesthesia, which achieves these goals.

About Me

What attracted you to facial plastic surgery?

As an identical twin, my brother and I have always been defined by our faces. I always wondered what made us “identical,” and how this was possible. My fascination with facial anatomy, coupled with my talent in art and drawing, made the field of facial plastic surgery a natural fit for me.

  1. How does Botox work, off-label, to help correct neck bands?
    What our experts say:

    The neck bands, as with other muscles of facial expression, appear more prominent as we age. This occurs due to its laxity or loosening, so during normal facial movements, the muscles tense and appear quite obvious.

    Neurotoxins work by relaxing muscles, so just as your eyes appear more rested when the muscles around the eyes are injected; in the same way, when injected into the platysma muscle, it relaxes it making your neck appear softer and more youthful.

  2. When should a facelift and necklift be combined?
    What our experts say:

    The quick answer is when its needed.

    A necklift is performed to tighten the neck contours and the underlying platysma muscle and a facelift lifts the jowls which sharpens the jawline.

    In my practice, I perform a neck lift with a facelift about 80% of the time. The reason for that is that the neck results are wonderful and the combined procedure produces fantastic long term results.

    I have had the opportunity to wrok on alot of secondary facelifts, so these are patients who had facelifts about 8-10 years ago and come in for a touchup. Their biggest complaint is that their neck has fallen. They usually don't specifically remember if they had a neck lift but on examination, the neck was not done at the initial surgery. So I am usually performing a revision face and neck lift.

    For those patients who had a face and neck lift done- they usually don't need a revision neck lift and I end up just revising the facelift. Usually a smaller overall procedure than the first time.

  3. What is your favorite procedure to perform?
    What our experts say:

    My favorite procedure to perform is a face/neck lift with a fat transfer. I find that this adddresses two of the most significant factors of ageing in one surgery- the recovery is quick- about 10 days to be 'restaurant ready' and results are fantastic.

    My patients are grateful to have their outer appearance match their inside youthful personalities and I get the most satisfaction from seeing these results.

  4. How is liposuction used to contour the neck?
    What our experts say:

    Liposuction is commonly used to contour the neck when there is fatty deposits collecting in that area. I commonly perform only neck liposuction in my patients in their mid 30's to 40's who don't have much excess skin but do carry extra weight under thier chins. The procedure is quick, takes about 30 mins, is done under local anesthesia and my patients are back to work after a couple of days with minimal discomfort.


Truly Amazing

Patient Anonymous
"I am a registered nurse RN and had a neck/lower face lift by Dr. D. Madnani and was able to attend my mother's unexpected wake/funeral 4 days after my surgery and no one saw any visible signs of the surgery except to say that I looked wonderful! My hair covered the suture lines around my ears and you could not notice the suture line under my chin. There was very minimal facial/neck bruising that was easily covered with concealer. Slight puffiness in my cheeks that occurred since I had to remove the ace wrap earlier than I was instructed to. Actually, no pain post-op at all! Mild discomfort only that the pain/anti-inflammatory meds took away completely. The anticipation of the surgery was more anxiety than the actual procedure itself. Truly, I did not experience any pain at all; could not even feel the insertion of the needle to numb the area. Amazingly, I was able to talk throughout more than 1/2 way thru the procedure before I fell asleep and I did Not experience any pain at all (painless). I was able to walk out of the office 20 minutes after the surgery was completed and felt fine (no dizziness, no nausea and no pain). Actually, I ate yogurt and soup one hour prior to the surgery and was given only 4 pills about 20 minutes prior to the surgery (pain med, anti-anxiety med, anti-nausea med and an antibiotic). The suture lines healed within the week free of any signs / symptoms of infection.As for Dr. Dilip Madnani, he was outstandingly wonderful!!! Very professional, experienced, confident, precise, informative, supportive and genuinely caring, very personable (called 2x pre-op and everyday post-op to see how I was feeling the first week). I recommend him highly!!! Don't be afraid, it will be the best 2hrs that you will invest in yourself with long lasting results!!!"
