"Dance Moms" star Abby Lee Miller returns to The Doctors after appearing earlier this season when she discussed her cancer battle. We are with the reality TV star as she undergoes a face and neck lift procedure by plastic surgeon Dr. Payman Simoni, without getting major anesthesia.
Dr. Simoni explains this special facelift uses human superglue and sutures to pull and tighten the skin, which allows him to skip major anesthesia. The first step is liposuction of the neck, followed by an incision in the neck and lifting the neck and skin muscles to address the "turkey neck" area. Dr. Simoni then uses sutures in the face area to lift fat and muscle to create a tighter look. The procedure is finished with a special type of superglue.
"Everyone keeps telling me how great I look," Abby says of the face and neck lift. She says people now say she looks "so young and so fresh."
Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon commends Dr. Simoni on the procedure saying Abby still "looks like herself" and says her face now appears much more slender. As for how long will Abby's face and neck lift last? Dr. Simoni says the results should endure for 7 to 10 years before she needs another touchup.
Abby also shares that she continues to recover from her cancer battle and she is walking more and more. Just before appearing on The Doctors, she was able to walk 450 steps, a major improvement for the reality TV star.
