In some cases, patients may not need facial plastic surgery to attain their goals. As part of Dr. Amie Miller’s non-surgical options, she offers BOTOX® injections for cosmetic enhancement in our adult patients and an innovative device for infants that can address aesthetic concerns affecting the shape of the ears.
You can find more details on our non-surgical options below, and we encourage you to contact Foothills Plastic Surgery for additional information, or to schedule a consultation.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable treatment that can temporarily diminish signs of age such as crow’s feet, creases along the forehead, and furrows (“frown lines”) that have developed between the eyebrows. The BOTOX® Cosmetic solution is composed of a filtered form of botulinum toxin type-A. When injected directly into the area of concern, the solution can stop the underlying muscles from contracting and causing wrinkles to develop. This can ultimately lead to a smoother and more refreshed look. BOTOX® injections can be performed right here at our practice and typically do not require an extensive recovery period. For most individuals, the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic can last approximately three to four months before retreatment is necessary in order to maintain the results.
EarWell® Infant Ear Correction
Dr. Miller is proud to be one of the few doctors in the area to provide treatment with the advanced EarWell® ear molding device for infants. This exceptional treatment is a non-surgical option designed to address ear shape irregularities and certain types of ear deformities at the earliest possible stage of development—before surgery may become necessary to successfully resolve the concern. The FDA-approved EarWell® device is placed on the infant’s ear to help reshape the cartilage while it is still pliable. It does not require needles, anesthesia, or surgery. For many patients, this treatment process can successfully provide correction for the deformity and enable improved ear-shape development, ultimately preventing the need for more invasive procedures later in life. Ideal candidates for the EarWell® device are typically infants within their first three weeks of life; however, Dr. Miller can examine your child and talk with you about their needs to determine whether they are still candidates after three weeks of age.
Dr. Miller was trained in EarWell® infant ear correction procedures by the inventor of the device and has performed this treatment many times. She has also found that infants tolerate the procedure very well. If you would like to learn more about the EarWell® device, please don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Miller with any questions you may have.
