Dr. Devgan performs both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. One of her recent emergency reconstructive cases for a severe nasal injury was recently selected to be featured in a respected emergency medicine textbook, Emergency Medicine Procedures (Reichman EF: Emergency Medicine Procedures, 3rd edition. McGraw-Hill, 2018).
Most women who seek breast augmentation in my New York City private practice are seeking natural-looking results. Even with conservative breast implants, it takes 3-4 months for breast implants to drop and settle into their final position.
Nevertheless, most breast augmentation patients look good even very early after surgery, as seen in these photos. As the pectoralis muscles relax and the implants settle, women see an improvement in their breast slope and teardrop shape.
Dark circles and hollows around the eyes are a frequent complaint among men and women in my New York City private practice. The most definitive treatment for these issues is surgery: lower eyelid blepharoplasty with fat grafting-- one of my favorite operations.
For patients who are not ready for surgery or who prefer a less invasive approach, injectable tear trough augmentation is a very powerful option. Using my signature metric-based technique, I layer hyaluronic acid based filler in the undereye area to lighten the appearance of dark circles, fill in hollows, and create a more youthful undereye appearance.
Tear trough augmentation takes a few minutes, lasts 1-2 years, and has no associated downtime. Results are immediately apparent but improve over the course of several weeks.
Botox is one of my favorite cosmetic interventions because it is so powerful and yet so minimally invasive. When performed well, Botox (and other neuromodulators such as Xeomin and Dysport) can relax facial muscles, make facial expressions more pleasing, and soften wrinkles and fine lines-- without making you look frozen or fake.
The key to natural looking Botox administration is in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy. By using microdroplet injection, careful measurement, and deliberate marking, I am able to individually target facial muscles to achieve natural-looking and youthful results.
Botox takes a few minutes, lasts 3-4 months, and improves the complexion, resting expression, and animated look of the face. For questions about Botox or other injectables, please contact my office.
This lovely patient was unhappy with her complexion after years of sun damage, brown spots, freckles, and melasma. I treated her with a deep chemical peel to achieve this significant improvement in her evenness and skin tone.
A deep chemical peel has about a week of downtime. It is an excellent treatment to combine with a surgical procedure, when you might be taking time off of work anyway. If you don't have the downtime to be out of the public eye for a week, I also perform moderate-depth mixed-modality chemical peels that have minimal to no visible peeling and no downtime.
Deep chemical peels may not be suited for all skin types and are safest for fair-skinned patients with sun damage. They are excellent for lightening dark spots and getting rid of fine lines.
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Devgan has been nominated for a 2017 Doctors' Choice Award. This award is based on the strength of recommendations from other physicians and surgeons for her professionalism, patient care, work ethic, and fund of knowledge.
Submental liposuction is one of my favorite surgical techniques for addressing a double chin, or excess fat tissue under the chin. In a 20 minute procedure performed under local anesthesia alone, your profile can be completely revamped, and your face can be made to look significantly thinner and younger.
Submental liposuction is a midpoint between Kybella (the fat melting injection deoxycholic acid) and a full surgical necklift. It is an excellent option for those desiring an improved neck with minimal downtime and fast recovery.
Lip augmentation is an art as well as a science. It requires a precise understanding of anatomic relationships, ideal aesthetic ratios, and beautiful proportions.
When performing lip augmentation, one of the most important concerns is appropriately analyzing the lips, and carefully addressing their unique characteristics. These examples demonstrate a bit of my thought process when carrying out a natural looking lip filler procedure.
Injectable fillers can subtly but definitively improve facial balance. Even though they only address one discreet part of the face, the millimeter changes that they make to certain anatomic areas can make the whole face appear more beautiful, as seen in three of my recent patients, pictured above.
Fillers are a powerful adjunct to-- and sometimes replacement for-- surgery. I love them because they are immediately apparent, and when done well, very natural and beautiful. If you are curious about fillers, I encourage you to make a consultation appointment with someone who does a lot of them and can appreciate their nuances.
This beautiful patient's abdomen showed the signs of childbearing, surgery, weight fluctuations, and age that affect many of us-- loose skin, stubborn fat, undesirable scars, and stretch marks. In each of these views, the photo on the right was taken just 10 days after I performed her abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). She already looks amazing at this early stage. She will look even better as her swelling and scars mature over the course of a year.
