A few months ago, “Dance Moms” reality star Abby Lee Miller, 53, opened up about undergoing a facelift with plastic surgeon Dr. Payman Simoni. The doctor’s procedure is unique in that the patient stays awake throughout.

The surgery was ideal for Miller who was instructed not to go under general anesthesia. After having multiple health issues and undergoing different surgeries unrelated to the facelift, the star felt she needed to do something to make her “feel better.”

Miller wanted something that “made me look better and something that I was like, 'Wow, I had surgery, but look at me now.'" In April 2018, the star was diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma and also had to undergo emergency spinal surgery.
