Fresh Face for Fall

Dr. Philip Miller

November 18, 2021

Have you been considering cosmetic work, but aren’t sure when the best time may be to have your procedure? Fall is the perfect time for several reasons, so schedule your consultation now. 

4 Reasons Fall is the Perfect Time for Cosmetic Surgery

1. Avoid the sun and heat.

With the cool autumn weather, you won’t have to worry about inflammation or skin damage from sun exposure or hot temperatures. 

2. Recover before the holidays.

If you have your surgery done in the fall, you can recover before the festivities begin. You’ll feel refreshed and ready to enjoy time with your loved ones during the holiday season.

3. Greater Scheduling Flexibility.

Many patients schedule cosmetic procedures in late winter or early spring. By scheduling your cosmetic procedure during the fall, you’re more likely to get the best appointment date for your schedule. 

4. Treat yourself before the holidays.

Before the frenzy of  the holiday season begins, why not treat yourself to some much-deserved self care and a new look to greet the New Year? 

Turn Back the Clock with a Facelift

Manhattan’s world-renowned facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Philip Miller, specializes in facelifts and rhinoplasty. He offers several facelift options: a traditional facelift, a mini facelift, a Micro Lift, or the proprietary Miller lift. One of these is sure to be the right one for you. 

Facelift Options

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, may be the perfect procedure for you if you’re looking for results that significantly turn back the clock. This procedure removes excess or sagging facial skin for a renewed, youthful look. 

During a traditional facelift, incisions are made at the hairline and continue in front of and behind the ears, extending to the lower scalp. Fat can be redistributed from your face and neck through these incisions, or liposuction may be used for the removal of excess fat. Muscles and skin are lifted and tightened.

Incisions made during facelift surgery are hidden in the natural creases of your face and hairline, and meticulously closed with sutures to minimize visibility after your procedure. Drainage tubes may be inserted but can be removed in 1-2 days. Sutures are removed between 5-10 days.

A mini facelift targets those areas of the face that are just beginning to wrinkle and sag. The incisions are shorter than a traditional facelift, and often confined to the front of the ear only. The mini facelift requires local anesthesia and can be performed in 90 minutes or less. 

The innovative, minimally invasive Micro Lift mimics the improved appearance that comes with pulled-back hair. It can be a perfect option for patients in their 20s-40s who want to erase early signs of aging. Comfortable, safe, quick, and performed under local anesthesia, the Micro Lift takes less than an hour in the office and requires little post-procedure downtime.

The Miller Lift is a proprietary, custom-designed liquid facelift technique that uses a combination of fillers, such as Juvéderm® and Restylane®, to soften and fill out lines and wrinkles. Besides smoothing wrinkles, facial fillers can address volume loss in the cheeks, chin, lips, and other contours of the face. 

Along with facial fillers, Dr. Miller performs injections of Botox Cosmetic® to address the dynamic wrinkles associated with facial expressions, such as forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet. Collagen stimulators, such as Sculptra, and fat eliminators, such as Kybella, round out the Miller Lift. Results can last for up to two years. 

Achieve Balance with a Rhinoplasty

Surgical vs. Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Surgical rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, adjusts, corrects, or reduces the look of the nose. Dr. Miller will consider the prominence of your cheeks, your jawline, your skin thickness and quality, and the overall dimensions of your nose before advising you how to achieve the changes you want while maintaining overall facial balance. 

A major benefit of rhinoplasty is that it’s typically a “one-and-done” procedure. Once the procedure is complete and the nose has fully healed, patients can enjoy the results for a lifetime.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty, also known as liquid rhinoplasty, uses injectable fillers to make subtle, yet dramatic changes to your appearance.

Non-surgical nose jobs are safe and effective, providing immediate results with exceptionally short recovery time. With this non-invasive procedure, injectable fillers are used to make small yet dramatic modifications to the nose. 

Non-surgical rhinoplasty has its limitations, however. Since corrections are made with dermal fillers that ultimately dissolve, results aren’t permanent. Non-surgical nose jobs aren’t appropriate for every nose and can’t reduce the size of the nose. 

Results will vary by patient, but the longevity of a non-surgical nose job is typically between 8-24 months. During your consultation, Dr. Miller will give you an idea about what you might expect from your results as well as how long they might last.

Quick Pick-Me-Ups: Botox and Dermal Fillers

Surgery isn’t your only option for rejuvenating your appearance. Injectables minimize wrinkles and add volume in areas that lack fullness. With little-to-no downtime, injectables deliver results in a matter of days so that you can enjoy your fresh, youthful appearance right away.

Botox relaxes the muscles that pull on the skin to form wrinkles. Botox Cosmetic is superior to dermal fillers for minimizing frown lines, horizontal furrows on the forehead, and crow’s feet around the eyes. It can also be used around the lips, around the nose, or on the bands of the neck. Results last up to four months.

Dermal fillers, including Restylane® and Juvéderm®, are gel-like substances that restore volume. They fill in creases and static wrinkles, which form from gradual volume loss. Hollow cheeks, saggy jowls, and under-eye bags are common treatment areas for dermal fillers, which can last up to 12 months or more.
