(Dr. Miller’s Signature Lift)
The vast majority of patients seeking to look younger will benefit from a lower third facelift. This type of lift addresses the most pervasive elements of the aging process in the face - jowling and platysmal banding (turkey neck).
After doing numerous facelifts of different types, Dr. Miller is convinced that a lower third facelift, often combined with a neck lift, is one of the most effective techniques available.
The lower third facelift entails suspending the muscle layer (SMAS) underneath the skin in order to reposition the jowls, eliminate the turkey neck, and provide a beautifully enhanced jaw line. In the process of doing this, excess skin is eliminated which can soften wrinkles especially around the ear and it can also soften the lower portion of the nasolabial fold.
Dr Miller’s Signature Lift is a traditional lower third facelift with a long history of proven results that last. This is not simply a skin lift or other quick fix type of procedure. One of the advantages of Dr. Miller’s Signature Lift is the limited recovery time. The vast majority of patients are able to return to work within a week of the procedure.
