About the Natural Surgical Facelift
Developed by Boston Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Leonard Miller, the Natural Surgical Facelift gives long-lasting results with a rapid recovery. It has become an increasingly popular surgical procedure with patients because there is no effect on the mouth and little pull on the upper aspect of the face, resulting in a much more “natural” look. The operation is safer, less extensive, and better tolerated than other traditional facelift procedures.
When the Natural Surgical Facelift is combined with other non-invasive techniques such as Botox®, fat transfer injections, other dermal fillers (Restylane®, Juvederm®, Radiesse®, etc.) and laser treatments, significant and long-lasting rejuvenation of the entire face can be achieved.
THE NATURAL SURGICAL FACELIFT PROCEDURE
Dr. Miller incorporates modern techniques that sculpt and tighten the face, jawline, and neck for a look that never appears “done.” A surgical approach to the neck with an incision under the chin is sometimes of benefit. Liposuction is also often recommended to help improve the overall appearance of the neck and jowls. Generally, the surgery takes two to three hours, but varies from patient to patient depending on the number of areas being rejuvenated and the complexity of each procedure. Nearly all facelifts are performed under local anesthesia in Dr. Miller’s fully accredited, state-of-the-art surgical suite at our Brookline office. Discomfort is minimal and the patient leaves the office after a short postoperative period.
NATURAL SURGICAL FACELIFT RECOVERY
Recovery is rapid and some degree of bruising and swelling is to be expected. This will resolve in approximately 7-10 days. Activity is limited in the first week following surgery and it is important to avoid strenuous activity for 2 weeks. Most patients are able to return to work within a week of the procedure.
NATURAL SURGICAL FACELIFT RESULTS
Patients of the Natural Surgical Facelift with Dr. Miller are very happy with the results and many return to the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation for other non-invasive services like Botox®, medical facials, and advanced laser treatments.
HOW MUCH DOES A NATURAL SURGICAL FACELIFT COST?
As with the procedure itself, the costs associated with the Natural Surgical Facelift vary from patient to patient. There are a number of factors that impact the cost like the surgical fee, facility fee, medication expenses, and anesthesia fee. While we do not accept any form of insurance, if your procedure can be covered by your insurance company, Dr. Miller will gladly refer you to the appropriate plastic surgeon whose office does accept insurance.
