Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is one of Dr. Miller’s specialties – he is known as a New York Rhinoplasty expert and leader in the field.  Rhinoplasty can reshape the nose to improve its appearance, producing dramatic or subtle changes depending on the patient’s desires. The surgery can also address breathing problems.  Patients commonly seek to have the overall size of the nose reduced or augmented, a hump removed, nostrils narrowed or asymmetry fixed. Dr. Miller believes in providing patients with a natural appearing nose that enhances the other facial features for improved facial harmony.

The facelift is an excellent procedure for individuals who are looking to address common aging signs like loose, sagging skin in the lower face and neck, including jowls and skin folds. There are many techniques the American College of Surgeons, available today, from minimal incision techniques to more extensive techniques which address the deeper tissues for a longer-lasting result. Facelifts are able to restore a smoother, more youthful profile.

The neck is one of the first areas of the face to show the signs of age. For individuals concerned with just the appearance of the neck, the neck lift can be performed to rejuvenate this area.  The neck lift re-drapes the skin and removes excess skin a fat to address the jawline, jowls and neck and restore a dramatically more youthful appearance. The neck lift can be performed on its own but is often performed as part of the facelift.

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, targets sagging skin in the upper eyelids and puffy under-eye bags.  During surgery, excess skin and fat are removed from the upper and/or lower eyelids, restoring a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Incisions are hidden within the natural creases of the skin or on the inside of the lower eyelid.
