The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that in 2019, there were 18.4 million surgical and minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures performed in the United States. This is a 4% increase from 2018, meaning that cosmetic treatments like Facelifts, non-surgical rhinoplasty and Botox are becoming more normalized as the years pass!

There are many reasons why people elect to have plastic surgery. Some want to improve their appearance for aesthetic reasons, while others seek reconstructive surgery after an accident or injury.

No matter your reason for considering plastic surgery in Boston, you have some of the best doctors right around the corner. But with so many options, how do you choose the right one?

Types of Facial Rejuvenation

Aesthetic results are usually achieved through a combination of surgical and non-surgical procedures. Whether you want to enhance your facial features, body contours, or skin health, our experienced doctors can tailor a treatment plan to suit your needs and goals. Procedures that our doctors commonly perform to achieve aesthetic results include:


Also known as eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty can rejuvenate the eyes by removing excess skin and fat from the eyelids. Drooping or puffy eyelids can cause a person to look tired, angry, or sad. This artistic eye procedure can help to restore a more youthful and refreshed appearance.


A facelift is a surgical procedure that can improve the appearance of the face by tightening the skin and muscles and removing excess fat to rejuvenate the face and achieve a more youthful appearance. It can improve the appearance of wrinkles, creases, and sagging skin on the face and neck. It can also be combined with other procedures, such as eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or brow lift (forehead lift), to achieve a complete result.

Tummy Tuck

Also known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck can remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen to create a smoother, firmer contour. Youthful-looking abdominal contours can be further enhanced with liposuction.


Fat can be removed from virtually any area of the body with liposuction. This procedure can remove pockets of fat resistant to diet and exercise. Common treatment areas include the abdomen, thighs, and arms.

Liposuction can also be used to improve contours after weight loss or pregnancy.

Breast Augmentation

Many women opt for breast implants or fat grafting as it can increase breast size and improve breast shape. Likewise, a breast lift can enhance the shape and position of breasts that have drooped due to aging, weight loss, or pregnancy. It can also be used to correct asymmetry.

Botox And Injectable Fillers

Injectable fillers can be used to add volume to the face, plump up lips, and improve the appearance of wrinkles. Fillers are also commonly used to augment other facial features, such as the cheeks and chin.

Botox is our most frequent procedure, and for good reason! We are world-renowned for our experience in Botox injections, as well as our cutting-edge research in developing new fillers.

Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra, Juvederm Volbella, Voluma, and Juvederm Vollure are all dermal fillers used to improve appearance.

Chemical peels, CoolSculpting, EndyMed, and laser peel, are some of the customized aesthetic procedures our clinicians can perform to improve your appearance. FDA-approved, these techniques remove dead skin cells and stimulate new collagen growth, resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin.

Personalized Treatment

Plastic surgery is a unique and individualized field of medicine that allows our surgeons to customize treatments to each patient’s specific goals. Whether you are interested in subtle changes or more dramatic results, our doctors will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that meets your needs and expectations.

Dr. Leonard Miller and his team are proud to offer customized aesthetic results for every patient that walks through our doors.

We have treatments available to meet each person’s individual goals. For example, a facelift or Botox are two different procedures. Botox can help with fine lines and wrinkles, while a facelift will give you a more youthful appearance by tightening the skin on your face. With different options to choose from, you can rest assured that our doctors will work with you to achieve the best possible results.

If you are over 60 or have had significant weight loss, you may not be a candidate for Botox. In these cases, a facelift may be a better option to achieve your desired results.
