Boston Plastic Surgeon Reveals His 'Less Extensive, Better Tolerated' Facelift Technique

Dr. Leonard Miller Highlights Distinctions of the Unique Approach to Facelift Surgery He Has Refined Over His Many Years in Practice

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Oct 21, 2014) - "At the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation, my approach to facelift surgery is generally less extensive and often better tolerated by patients when compared to traditional facelift techniques," says Boston plastic surgeon Leonard Miller, MD. By employing what he calls "The Natural Facelift," Dr. Miller notes he can tighten sagging skin and recontour targeted areas of the face and neck to help patients achieve a more youthful, natural-looking appearance with long-lasting results.

Key distinctions of Dr. Miller's facelift technique include the care he takes not to undermine the skin (which can help limit bleeding and scarring), his unique skin and muscle tightening approach, and the customized combination of supplemental procedures he often utilizes to help enhance the overall outcome of surgery. When performed along with "The Natural Facelift," Dr. Miller says fat injections, a temporal brow lift, and/or laser skin resurfacing can often help improve results by diminishing the appearance of lines and creases that may form when the skin is pulled taut. Though tightening of the skin is an essential part of the facelift procedure, he notes he is always careful not to produce a "windswept" look by pulling too tightly.

As a result of his less extensive approach, Dr. Miller says recovery from facelift surgery is generally considered to be less difficult and not as enduring as many patients originally anticipate it to be. Though some degree of swelling and bruising is often unavoidable, the Boston plastic surgeon notes that specialized techniques he utilizes during surgery have proven to help limit these specific postoperative symptoms. While the majority of his patients are comfortable returning to public about a week after surgery, he states that many are ready to leave the house and resume their daily routines even earlier.

In the end, Dr. Miller says every facelift procedure he performs is specifically tailored to meet the patient's unique needs, and the most effect approach for each individual will be determined at the time of the consultation.
