Facial plastic surgeon Dilip D. Madnani, MD, FACS, the owner of Madnani Facial Plastics, divides his time between offices in Manhattan and Smithtown, NY. He’s known for his meticulous attention to detail, holistic approach to anti-aging and the natural-looking results that they sire. His mark is largely invisible – and that’s just the way he wants it.
“Facial aesthetics have shifted to more natural and un-operated look. I believe the key to successful facial plastic surgery procedure is the ability to rejuvenate and beautify without anyone knowing you were there,” says Madnani, also an Assistant Clinical Professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, NY.
He spoke to Beauty In The Bag about his practice philosophy, favorite procedures and even shared some beauty secrets of his own. Here’s what we learned.
1. What is your practice philosophy?
“Every face presents a unique set of challenges—a canvas requiring a combination of visual artistry and surgical precision to bring the underlying natural beauty to the surface. This is what makes my work exciting and fulfilling.”
2. What is your signature procedure?
“Combining facelifts with fat transfer is my favorite procedure to perform. The aging process occurs due to two primary reasons. 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 elasticity. The combination of a natural volumizing procedure, such as fat transfer, with a face or neck lift, addresses these causes of aging in one sitting and allows patients to enjoy the most natural-looking results for the longest amount of time.”
3. What are your beauty secrets?
“A little botox, filler and laser never hurt anyone. Laser skin resurfacing does wonders to stimulate collagen and turn back the clock to more youthful skin. All of us should have some type of mild resurfacing to erase the years.”
