New Beauty

In an article entitled “The Modern-Day Microdermabrasion”, Dr. Forley discusses the new SilkPeel 3, “The noninvasive treatment combines the mechanical exfoliation traditionally known as microdermabrasion with a dermal infusion system to deliver specialized serums deep within the skin.

Plastic Surgery Practice Magazine

Dr. Forley was named one of the “Best of 2012 Plastic & Cosmetic Surgeons” in the annual Plastic Surgery Practice listing.


UK-based Tatler discussed Dr. Forley in its 2008 Beauty and Cosmetic Surgery Guide as one of the “A-list of cosmetic surgeons”…”who are at the top of their game”…and whose “innovations are shaping the art of cosmetic surgery around the world.” It was noted that Dr. Forley’s “discreet Upper East Side clinic is perfect for women and men in search of minimally invasive natural-looking surgery. He was trained in France and the UK and has a straightforward, gentle, less-is-more approach. He uses the intimidating-sounding MACS-lift (Minimal Access Cranial Suspension), which is an ingenious short-scar method. A small incision is placed just above where the ear meets the hairline and the cheeks and jowls are gently pulled up. He makes sure the skin is in great shape by using the Fraxel laser for resurfacing and combines it with expertly placed fillers like Sculptra to maximise his results. He also does Juvederm, Botox and Restylane at the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Salon and Spa on Fifth Avenue. He has been on missions to Asia and Africa, where he has devoted his skills to treat children with facial deformities.”

Julia Reed writes that Dr. Forley, “disarms me by asking what I might like to have done. Nothing, I say, sure that I mean it. And then he shows me before and after books of tiny little neck lifts, subtle browlifts involving tiny little incisions well hidden within the hairline. In ten years, he assures me, I’ll be thinking about it. I actually like him. And I fear he may be right.”

The New York Times

Discussing plastic surgery requests by patients who want to look their best for New Year’s Eve, Dr. Forley expressed uneasiness with “people viewing surgery as the answer to a fashion emergency…he discourages patients seeking liposuction just before a St. Bart’s vacation or a big night out. Rather than having patients get plastic surgery to fit into a ball gown, he said, he would encourage them “to make a New Year’s resolution that will help them to maintain the ability to fit into that ball gown next year.” Wise advice…”

The Wall Street Journal

In an article entitled “Europeans Take Beauty Trip to U.S.”, Dr. Forley commented that, “he first noticed an uptick in international patients two or three years ago. His office arranges lodging and nursing care for overseas patients at hotels near his office in Manhattan. A British patient who came for surgery this year says she was surprised by the personal service she received from Dr. Forley, including a post-surgical checkup at her hotel on a Sunday morning.”

The Times UK

The author visited Dr. Forley and commented that “some of the wisest words spoken to me came from a quiet but eminent plastic surgeon, Dr. Bryan Forley, as he refused to use Botox on my forehead: “Just because a procedure is available, it does not mean it’s necessarily wise to have it,” he said.

Discussing the importance of diet and exercise in maintaining the results of liposuction, Dr. Forley said, “Treating patients from the outside only is essentially treating only half the person.”

Business Traveler

Dr. Forley commented on the increasing popularity of plastic surgery amongst businessmen.


In an article entitled “Today’s Dermal Fillers”, Dr. Forley noted, “Sunken cheeks and temples can produce a drawn and tired appearance and a seeming lack of vitality. In addition to smoothing wrinkles, Sculptra replaces lost facial fullness caused by aging and skin laxity. We can customize a Sculptra treatment to the individual patient to fill volume deficiencies in a way that restores broad areas of lost facial volume, enhances the cheek area, and eliminates depressions around the mouth. Particularly in patients who are not surgical candidates, Sculptra provides a means to achieve a rejuvenating effect on facial appearance without using the scalpel.”

Plastic Surgery Practice

In an article entitled “The New Therapy Landscape”, Dr. Forley commented on the use of Fraxel laser and Botox. “If I am treating someone with (fractional resurfacing) laser rejuvenation and they have got intense frown lines or smile lines, and I can reduce those with Botox before doing the laser, it helps rejuvenate the skin into a much smoother state.”

Plastic Surgery Practice

Dr. Forley wrote about his personal experience with the Fraxel laser in his private practice in an article entitled “Three Years with a Fraxel Laser”. He described the benefits he has seen in the treatment of wrinkles and skin texture, skin discoloration, and acne scars. The safety and efficacy of using the laser on the face, neck, chest, and hands was highlighted.

Dr. Forley discusses how to maintain the appearance of a consistently rejuvenated face for longer periods of time to meet consumer demands. Sculptra®Aesthetic can provide a natural looking, aesthetically appealing appearance without the telltale signs of intervention.


Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Bryan G. Forley performs non-surgical treatments of varying degrees of complexity to achieve an aesthetically appealing appearance with minimal downtime. Dr. Forley brings the aesthetic judgment and understanding of anatomy and aging that he utilizes in surgery to the most advanced minimally invasive procedures. He offers a program of volume restoration and laser skin rejuvenation to achieve a natural, youthful looking appearance without surgery.

Dr. Forley discusses the new Fraxel® re:store Dual laser for non-ablative skin resurfacing and rejuvenation of the face, neck, chest, and hands. The new, more superficial Thulium fiber wavelength directly targets pigmentation with minimal discomfort in one or two treatment sessions. In addition, the deep penetrating Erbium fiber can be used in the new system for the treatment of wrinkles, enlarged pores, and acne scars. The Dual treatment regimen utilizes both wavelengths to target wrinkles, improve skin texture, and reduce melasma and dark pigment spots. The treatment consists of 3-5 sessions done at about 4 week intervals.

The aging process in the hands is characterized by wrinkled skin, increased pigmentation, and prominent veins and tendons as soft tissues break down. Dr. Forley discusses the significant improvements that can be achieved in the hands with minimal downtime using volume restoration with injectables such as Sculptra® Aesthetic or Radiesse®. Fraxel® re:store laser is used to complement the overall effect by enhancing surface texture of the skin and lightening brown spots.

Dr. Forley discusses SculptraAesthetic, one of the newest FDA-approved choices available for volume restoration in the aging face.

Dr. Forley discusses the role of fat conservation in the lower eyelid as a very valuable adjunct to a facelift or browlift in trying to create a youthful harmony to the entire face.


In an article entitled “Volume Matters” by Wendy Lewis, Dr. Forley comments on the use of Sculptra®Aesthetic to restore youthful appearing contours in the volume deficient aging face by stimulating the deposition of new collagen. He says it, “provides a means to achieve a rejuvenating effect on facial appearance without using the scalpel. It is a particularly effective technique in patients who want a longer-term result than we can offer them with traditional dermal fillers. In my practice, I have found that the improvement in facial appearance lasts up to three years.”

The desire for self-improvement in men has steadily increased over the past decade. Dr. Forley discusses the non-surgical procedures that are most frequently requested by men: BOTOX® Cosmetic, injectable fillers, and Ultherapy®.

The interest men express in improving their appearance can frequently be satisfied with non-surgical procedures. However, there are situations where surgery is necessary to achieve the desired outcome. Dr. Forley discusses surgical procedures to treat baggy eyelids, excess fat deposits of the neck, hips, and abdomen, and male breast enlargement known as gynecomastia.
