At the 2011 annual meeting of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) in Boston, Orange County plastic surgeon Dr. Dan Mills presented his approach to helping patients achieve and maintain beauty for a lifetime. The Beauty for Life Pyramid promotes building a good foundation for beauty with a healthy lifestyle and good skin care, and then adding minimally invasive procedures. Dr. Mills says this combination of preventative measures such as healthy living and skin care with minimally-invasive procedures such as Ultherapy and chemical peels creates the best opportunity for great and long lasting results when it’s time for a surgical solution.
At his Laguna Beach plastic surgery practice, Dan Mills, MD focuses on the longevity of his patients’ beauty by applying the Beauty for Life Treatment Plan. Developed by Dr. Mills and recently presented at the 2011 meeting of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the Beauty for Life plan presents patients of the Aesthetic Plastic Surgical Institute with a visual guide to maintaining their beauty through a combination of preventative measures, noninvasive procedures, and surgical procedures such as the facelift, breast lift, or thigh lift.
The first tier of the Beauty for Life Treatment Plan pyramid is healthy living, which Dr. Mills says is the most important element to beauty inside and out. “Taking care of the basics such as lifestyle are the foundation for looking your best your entire life; the Beauty Pyramid is simply a new tool that communicates the importance of healthy living as it relates to a lifetime of beauty.”
While healthy living can help patients maintain their natural beauty, Dr. Mills stresses that aging is simply a fact of life, therefore unavoidable. By treating areas of the body and face that commonly show signs of aging, Dr. Mills says he and his team can help their patients preserve their natural beauty through the five-tiered approach of the Beauty for Life Pyramid.
Ultimately, Dr. Mills says the approach to lasting beauty presented in the pyramid is the foundational philosophy for patient care that guides the Aesthetic Plastic Surgical Institute’s pursuits. However, Dr. Mills adds that the Beauty for Life Pyramid is accessible through the practice’s website to anyone who wants to manage their beauty care. “We make the pyramid available online because we believe everyone deserves to look and feel their best.”
