You may not quite be ready for a surgical facelift. You may have a big event coming up and need results fast. You may not have time to set aside for the downtime required for a surgical facelift. If any of this applies to you then the liquid facelift is the answer.
As we age, the face begins to lose collagen and elastin which contributes to sagging facial features. The loss of facial volume and elasticity also leads to the formation of wrinkles, lines and folds.
A Liquid Facelift is a technique for injecting a combination of any of the following dermal fillers, such as Voluma, Dysport, BOTOX, Restylane and JUVEDERM to gently lift and contour facial features. A non-surgical Liquid Facelift can be undertaken to accomplish any of the following:
- Reduce wrinkles, creases, crows feet and laugh lines.
- Restore face to a more youthful look.
- Soften of the features.
- Reduce marionette lines from nose to mouth.
- Rejuvenate and refresh the face.
In some patients the goal of a non surgical Liquid Face Lift procedure is to enhance the entire face. In others, the goal is to lift or contour specific facial features. For example, under eye bags and dark circles can be reduced by using Liquid Facelift techniques; eyes can be opened up and lids lifted; jowls can be lifted and diminished; natural shape can be restored to flattened cheeks or temple areas and corners of the mouth can be lifted.
During your consultation with Tulsa Plastic Surgery’s team of experts, they will determine which fillers to use based on your goals and needs. It is important to make sure your doctor is a plastic surgeon that is familiar with working with and around the face and eyes.
Tulsa Plastic Surgery knows fine lines and wrinkles can affect your self-confidence and cause you to look tired–even when you’re not. Tulsa Plastic Surgery offers these non-surgical procedures for facial rejuvenation.

Do you sweat excessively? Are you tired of using deodorant? Are you over those deodorant lines on your little black dress or your favorite T-shirt? Then, miraDry is for you!
Tulsa Plastic Surgery is the first practice in the Tulsa area to offer the amazing miraDry technology. This procedure is performed and/or overseen by a plastic surgeon, Dr. Arch Miller M.D. Why is this important to you? A plastic surgeon understands your skin, muscles and nerves at a much greater level than an R.N. or a medical technician. If the cost of performing the miraDry procedure is the same whether using a M.D., R.N., or a medical technician, why not choose the most highly trained professional to perform this medical procedure? Call or email Tulsa Plastic Surgery now to schedule your free consultation.
miraDry is a safe, clinically proven, FDA-cleared solution for significantly reducing underarm sweat. It’s an outpatient procedure performed in your physician’s office, and it doesn’t involve any surgical incisions or cuts. miraDry works by delivering precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area, eliminating the underarm sweat glands.
- In-office procedure with minimal to no downtime.
- One-treatment unless you suffer from excessive sweating.
- No more need for antiperspirants.
- Only 2% of sweat glands are in the armpits; so, miraDry does not affect the body’s ability to cool itself.
Standard Miradry Cost
The average physcian fees for miraDry range from $1,750 to $4,500. Most patients need to undergo at least two in-office miraDry treatments to see lasting benefits of this procedure. This is due to the fact that it’s not easy to target all the sweat glands in their rightful places all within one procedure; so, at least two treatments are recommended. At Tulsa Plastic Surgery we offer several convenient for you financing options.
What is miraDry all about? If you’re not sure, answer these questions below:
- Have you’ve suffered from excessive sweating for a long time now and are tired of feeling overly self-conscious about it?
- Are you constantly embarrassed by the marks of sweat on your tops?
- Does it feel like you’ve used every deodorant and antiperspirant on the market with no help to ease the overproduction of sweat and the marks it leaves behind?
If you’ve answered, “Yes,” to any of the above questions, then it’s time to give miraDry a try! This world-class, ultra powerful, laser procedure drastically reduces sweat and odor producing glands. This might be just what you need for your embarrassing “sweaty” journey to come to an end; dry armpits are what’s in store for you when you decide to try the miraDry treatments. Yes, the cost is more than those temporary fixes, deodorants and antiperspirants, but the long-term effects of miraDry on your armpits are worth it and far outweigh the cost. We offer several financing options and payment plans.
If you’re ready to have dryer armpits as well as dryer tops, call Tulsa Plastic Surgery today to schedule your appointment!
Did you know that Restylane is the first and only FDA-approved product for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years? Though plastic surgeons often safely and effectively utilize Juvederm for lip enhancement, it’s technically an “off-label” application. Restylane has been used in millions of patients for millions of treatments, such as… filling wrinkles and creases around the mouth reducing the appearance of “dark circles” under the eyes.
To reveal a younger-looking you, Dr. Arch Miler artistically adds Restylane to areas of the face for added volume or fullness–always with the goal of a more youthful, natural-looking face.
For centuries, artists have used the Divine Proportion to create harmony and balance.
For lips, this Divine Proportion translates into a guideline that the upper lip should be about 40% of the total height of the lips, and the bottom lip should be about 60%.
Like many people, you may want fuller lips.
While lipsticks and lip plumpers can temporarily enhance lip contours and fullness, they offer only limited and fleeting results. Truly effective lip enhancement requires a professional-grade product administered by a trained healthcare professional. If you and Tulsa Plastic Surgery’s expert team agree it’s the right choice, Restylane can add fullness and definition to your lips, with an aesthetically pleasing, natural-looking result Lips that say “you”–beautiful and just the way you want them.
Dark Circles Under the Eyes
Sometimes there is a darker pigmentation of skin below the eye area, but not that often. In the experience of Dr. Miller, the most common cause of a dark appearance beneath the eyes is actually shadowing. The entire face is a curvy landscape that’s comprised of convex and concave surface areas–ogee curves–that reflect light or cast shadows. The eye area has an ogee curve, and you can think of it as a hill-valley-hill, and this valley portion is, of course, what often appears as shadowed or as having “dark circles.”
Restylane is often an excellent choice for specific areas of the face, including the lower eyelid area.
Like Juvederm, Restylane is a FDA approved hyaluronic acid (HA) filler, so Dr. Miller are confident in its safety profile.
Four things you’ll probably love about Restylane and other HAs are:
- It’s a complex sugar (poly-disaccharide) that occurs naturally in your body–your eyes, skin, etc.–so it’s safe to use **by properly trained hands**
- Being a natural substance, we are able to reverse the effects of Restylane. HAs are “fail safe” in that they can be dissolved & reversed if the patient wishes to do so.
- And what’s best is that HAs–Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero, Perlane, and the new Voluma–can all work wonderfully well for the face, including the eyes, forehead, and mouth area.
- Fillers last the longest in areas of the face that move the least, so the effects of Restylane may last 12+ months when placed along the tear trough, under the eyes.
There is no “best filler” nor are the HA fillers “made equal,” so as a patient you are relying upon the “expert physicians” to choose an HA product that best suits your unique face and your specific goal. Restylane is specially formulated, and has a unique characteristic that differs from Juvederm, so it’s important to know precisely WHERE to place each product and in WHAT volume.
Restylane is a “stiffer” & more cohesive gel than Juvederm, so it holds its shape and structure better than the “less-stiff” Juvederm gel. Why? The simple science is water retention: Juvederm holds more water than Restylane, and therefore produces a puffier and softer effect than the slightly more rigid Restylane. Juvederm injected into the lower eyelid area will therefore hold more water and POSSIBLY produce the look of puffy eyes. Placed within the creases that run along the sides of the mouth (the marionette lines), Juvederm’s diffuse effect nicely “puffs up” that area for smoother skin, and ultimately a younger-looking mouth.
Doesn’t Every Doctor, Dentist, Nurse and Med Spa Technician Inject Restylane and Other HA Fillers?
It does sometimes seem like the wild west of medicine. Choose experience & expertise over price promotions, especially when it comes to your eyes. Precise knowledge of eye anatomy is extremely important.
If the injector does not know exactly WHERE to place the product–whether it’s Restylane or Juvederm–because they have not operated on the face and know the intricacies of facial anatomy, then there’s a possibility of the HA gel being placed too close to the skin surface. This superficial injection may lead to what plastic surgeons refer to as the Tyndall effect.
The Tyndall effect, or Tyndall scattering, is a slight bluish discoloration that could last a year or longer in patients who received an injection of Restylane or Juvederm just below the skin surface, rather than at a deeper anatomic level. This bluish hue is caused by a similar effect as the blue-colored sky: light is refracted as it passes through a clear medium (whether it’s atmosphere or clear gel).
Correctable? Yes. As stated earlier, HAs are natural substances that can be dissolved & reversed if the patient wishes to do so, using an enzyme called hyaluronidase. Hyaluronidase is not inexpensive, so all the more reason to choose experience & expertise over price promotions, especially when it comes to your eyes.
If You’re Curious About How Restylane Works…
…HA is a gel-like substance that’s hydrophilic (hydro: water; -philic: loving = water loving) and “holds” or “retains” water. This water retention is what produces the look Dr. Miller desires, which is a smoother, fuller and more youthful looking face. The term “hyaluronic acid” is actually a misnomer, as it’s NOT an acid. HA is a long chain of sugars (poly-disacchride) that comprises much of the connective and structural tissue in bodies–particularly the skin.
Also, it’s important for you to keep in mind that Restylane’s cohesiveness/stiffness can make it more prone to producing a bump or bumpiness beneath the skin surface. Because of this characteristic quality, Restylane should be carefully molded and slightly massaged beneath the skin (by your injector) as soon as it’s injected–this is an important step in the process and can help ensure that you’re happy with the smooth results Restylane CAN provide.
Who Performs the Injections at Tulsa Plastic Surgery?
Dr. Arch Miller is among the very few surgeons in all of Tulsa who perform ALL of their injections. Why? It’s a fair question, since there are several skilled aestheticians on the team, as well as a specially-certified registered nurse with over 40-years experience.
The reasoning is this: when you entrust your face, body, or any priceless part of yourself to a medical professional, we believe you deserve the highest level of medical expertise. It’s more profitable to have someone other than Dr. Miller perform these types of procedures, so it’s certainly not about money. Tulsa Plastic Surgery’s highly trained and skilled doctor knows there’s no substitute for their 12+years specialty training at highest levels of medical care. Tulsa Plastic Surgery genuinely believes each patient deserves this highest level of care–even for non-surgical options, such as Restylane, Juvederm, Botox, and other procedures where experience and expertise truly matter.
