Plastic Surgeon in Laguna Beach to Teach at ASAPS Annual Conference
Laguna Beach, CA — At the upcoming annual Aesthetic Meeting for the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) in Vancouver, British Columbia, Daniel C. Mills MD, a plastic surgeon in Orange County, will be delivering a course instruction for attendees on breast asymmetry and a “Hot Topic” lecture on VASER liposuction and Adipose Derived Regenerative Cells. The course, titled Breast Asymmetry: Strategies for Improving Outcomes and Patient Satisfaction, will take place on Friday May 4, 2012 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. and will be taught by Dr. Dan Mills and Dr. Anne Taylor. Dr. Mills says he hopes the course will help educate surgeons about the complexities of identifying, categorizing, and treating breast asymmetry in an effort to enhance patient care and results.
The Aesthetic Meeting 2012 for ASAPS will be going on from May 3-8 at the Convention & Exhibition Center in Vancouver and features over 200 technical and scientific exhibits, hands-on cadaver workshops, and live demonstrations. Dr. Mills stresses the importance of regular attendance at continuing education events such as the ASAPS conference because they give plastic surgeons a chance to hone their skills and keep up-to-date with the latest advancements in techniques and technology. He says he looks forward to the opportunity to share his experience in helping patients correct breast asymmetry and is excited to promote the future of cosmetic enhancements: “Breast symmetry represents a high priority for patients. It is important for plastic surgeons to learn how best to achieve this goal for the patients through learning opportunities such as the ASAPS meeting and courses of this nature. Members share their experience with developing effective methods to help patients achieve their aesthetic enhancement goals.”
During his upcoming course on strategic approaches to improving breast asymmetry surgery, Dr. Mills says he hopes attendees will leave the presentation with a much more detailed outlook on performing breast surgery. He says the course is designed to help those in attendance correctly classify the many types of breast asymmetry based on current data, develop and execute a surgical treatment plan to improve patient deformities, and correctly identify and treat secondary breast asymmetry. More information regarding ASAPS lectures and Dr. Mills’ course can be found here.
In addition to the course on breast asymmetry surgery, Dr. Mills will also be giving a “Hot Topics” presentation titled, “3rd Generation UAL Viability of Fat Cells and ADRCS Using Established Standardized Methods.” Dr. Mills says the presentation focuses on the viability of Adipose tissue collected using the the VASER method of liposuction and whether this type of tissue is a suitable source for autologous fat grafts and Adipose Derived Regenerative Cells (ADRC).
Participating in continuing education courses and workshops is essential to a surgeon’s ability to provide patients with the safest and most effective treatments according to Dr. Mills. He encourages patients considering a cosmetic enhancement procedure to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who stays active in the medical community so as to ensure they receive top-quality care. As he looks forward to the event, Dr. Mills adds that he is excited for the opportunity to continue pursuing the most satisfactory outcomes for his patients through the ASAPS conference and all his educational endeavors: “ASAPS represents the most recent advances in aesthetic plastic surgery, which is why participation is paramount. ASAPS members are committed to using cutting-edge techniques proven to produce consistent results that satisfy their patients’ goals. I strive to grow and improve every day to ensure I maintain the highest levels of patient satisfaction and quality outcomes, and my involvement with ASAPS is an important part of making that happen.”

Orange County Plastic Surgery Practice Hosts Cosmetic Enhancement Special Event
Orange County, CA — In wake of the growing popularity of minimally invasive body contouring procedures such as Ulthera® and CoolSculpting®, Dr. Dan Mills, a plastic surgeon in Orange County, will be hosting a “Cool Night Out Event” to raffle off prizes and provide special offers to patients in attendance. Dr. Mills says non-invasive body and facial sculpting procedures have been taking the field of plastic surgery by storm, providing effective treatment in skin tightening and rejuvenation, and he is excited to help raise awareness about the new advancements in cosmetic enhancement.
The event will take place at his practice on Wednesday April 11, 2012 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. and patients will have the chance to win several free prizes as well as other giveaways and offers. Space is limited, so patients must contact the office to RSVP at (949) 234-6552.
At his Orange County plastic surgery practice, the Aesthetic Plastic Surgical Institute, Dr. Mills provides services in a wide variety of aesthetic procedures ranging from breast augmentation and tummy tucks to facelifts and chemical peels. Thanks to the constantly evolving nature of cosmetic enhancements, he says innovative new procedures are beginning to rely less on scalpels and more on lasers and energy. With less cutting and invasive surgery, Dr. Mills says plastic surgery is moving towards faster recovery times and fewer scars, a direction he feels will help patients achieve the most natural, effective results possible in enhancing their appearance.
The “Cool Night Out Event” on April 11 at Dr. Mills’ practice will feature hors d’oeuvres, a skin care product raffle, free glycolic hand treatments for all attendees, and a raffle for a free CoolSculpting® procedure. Developed by Zeltiq, CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction that utilizes cooling technology to disrupt fat cells and slowly dispose of them through the body’s natural cleansing process. Dr. Mills says he has been impressed by the results of non-surgical procedures like CoolSculpting® and hopes patients begin taking advantage of the innovative treatments that are available now in cosmetic enhancement.
“For some people, surgery is not a choice they would make, so a non-surgical option is really the only option that they would choose for their own personal reasons. We are seeing a lot more non-invasive options that are not as dramatic as surgery, with essentially no recovery time,” says Dr. Mills
Dr. Mills’ practice has also been running a special introductory price on Ultherapy®, another non-invasive therapy that uses ultrasound technology to tighten the surface of skin. The offer allows patients to save up to $500 on a face and neck Ultherapy® procedure and will be running until April 30, 2012.
Dr. Mills says he is looking forward to the upcoming “Cool Night Out Event” because it offers him the opportunity to share his expertise and experience in non-surgical body contouring in Orange County. He says events like the one at his practice are an excellent way for patients to increase their knowledge about aesthetic procedures by learning firsthand from a board-certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Mills urges anyone considering plastic surgery to take the time to research their procedure extensively before deciding to undergo treatment. “The Coolsculpting event is important to our practice because we believe in educating our patients so they can make the right decision based on their goals and expectations,” he says.
