BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Dec 20, 2012) - Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Leonard Miller uses his 25 years' experience in facial rejuvenation techniques at his Boston plastic surgery practice to provide a safer, less extensive facelift alternative known as the "natural" facelift. Dr. Miller says this procedure avoids the "pulled" look that many facelift procedures tend to overdo, and allows him to keep scars hidden to help patients achieve a more youthful appearance.

Dr. Miller says the ideal candidates for a "natural" facelift include:

  • Patients who are unhappy with their appearance because of loose skin, folds and jowls in the lower face and neck.
  • Patients who seek less invasive alternatives to a traditional facelift procedure.

A "natural" facelift procedure is considered to be more versatile than a traditional facelift because it does not use a textbook approach to the operation. According to Dr. Miller, "Offering the 'natural' facelift procedure can make it easier to meet patients' expectations and avoid having to treat patients with unrealistic expectations."

Dr. Miller says the less invasive procedure can provide countless benefits for patients, including:

  • Low complication rate
  • Minimal downtime
  • Quick and easy recovery
  • Scars are easily hidden
  • Can be performed in conjunction with other non-invasive techniques such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, fat injections, fractional laser resurfacing, etc.
  • Patients do not need to stay overnight after the procedure

When performing a "natural" facelift procedure, Dr. Miller strives to make sure patients' aesthetic goals are met by providing the most natural-looking results. "Using the most advanced techniques for the 'natural' facelift helps patients avoid looking like they have had any plastic surgery done," Dr. Miller says. The Boston plastic surgeon adds that the procedure can provide similar results to a traditional facelift, but requires less downtime and little discomfort.
