Dr Hoenig comments on Restylane and Perlane

"Q: When Melanie Griffith joins Chicago in the role of Roxie Hart, she'll be sharing the Great White Way with her husband, Antonio Banderas, now in Nine. Will we see her blowing him kisses from her collagen-puffed lips? - Mary Vasquez, San Diego, Calif.

A: Probably not. Cosmetic surgeons tell us collagen is on the way out. "It's being replaced by hyluronic acid, marketed as Perlane and Restylane, which causes fewer allergic reactions and lasts much longer," says Dr. Jonathan Hoenig. The FDA won't say when it plans to approve these products. They've been used legally in other countries for years and secretly by some US physicians eager to please their demanding patients. Griffith, 45, has never admitted using collagen."


Considered an expert in facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, Dr Hoenig has completed three separate fellowships to ensure that he is qualified to offer the most advanced techniques in facial surgery: cosmetic and dermatologic surgery, oculo-facial cosmetic surgery, and oculoplastic surgery. He is one of the few cosmetic surgeons who is a diplomat of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) and the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, as well as board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology.
