      $cd = strtotime($givendate);
      $newdate = date('Y-m-d h:i:s', mktime(date('h',$cd),
    date('i',$cd), date('s',$cd), date('m',$cd)+$mth,

Or

$fourDaysHence = date("Y-m-d", strtotime("NOW +4 DAYS") );

or

$fourDaysHence = date("m/d/Y", strtotime("NOW +4 DAYS") );

See http://uk.php.net/manual/en/function.date.php for different ways to lay out the resulting date
