While my approach to plastic surgery blends the latest in technique and technology, I believe that a truly satisfied patient fundamentally begins with a strong patient - doctor relationship. I aim to treat every person like family, which impacts the effort and energy I invest into each surgery. Each person who walks into my office has individual needs and expectations. I strive to build trust and confidence by listening to each patient's needs and educating them on all available alternatives.
As a board-certified plastic surgeon in Laguna Beach, I offer a variety of procedures designed to help you enhance your appearance and feel more confident about the way you look. With treatment options including facelift, liposuction, tummy tuck surgery, and breast augmentation in Orange County, I am able to help patients achieve their goals with advanced techniques that can provide beautiful, natural-looking results. In addition to a full range of facial rejuvenation, body contouring, and breast surgery procedures, I also offer an array of non-surgical medical spa treatments, including BOTOX® Cosmetic and laser skin resurfacing.
All of our treatments are customized for each individual patient for the most successful results. My entire team is committed to meeting your needs with the absolute best in care.
Our goal with the consultation process is to provide you with all the information you need to make a well informed decision as to whether plastic surgery is right for you. Your consultation will begin with your initial inquiry via telephone or email. In addition to scheduling an appointment, you will have an opportunity to ask any preliminary questions. On the day of your consultation, you will fill our health history and registration paperwork and you will meet with Dr. Mills and his patient coordinator. Dr. Mills will ask you what you are looking to achieve through plastic surgery and take the time to address your needs and expectations. He will review with you what to expect with surgery and advise you on his recommendations specifically tailored for you. We will provide you with an information packet and show you before and after photos of Dr. Mills' patients. If you would like to speak to a previous patient about the procedure, We would be happy to provide you with a phone reference during or after your visit. We ask that you allow approximatly an hour and a half for your consultation visit. To schedule a consultation, you can call our office at 949/499.2800 or visit www.danmillsmd.com.

Thank you for the wonderful transformation you created, physically on my face; and emotionally in my heart â€“ opening the eyes of my soul to see and embrace the exciting â€œnewâ€ road ahead! God has blessed your hands with great talent and gifted your heart with great compassion! Thank you for making me feel important and special. S.I.
I highly recommend Dr. Mills to anyone who wants a kind, warm, and gifted surgeon. I flew all the way from Tokyo , Japan to have my BA and tummy tuck done (I am an American living in Tokyo )â€¦It was well worth the 10 hour flight and two week stay in the U.S. I am so pleased with the results and the quality of care I received. If I choose to have anymore plastic surgery, I would only go to Dr. Mills. Moreover, Dr. Millsâ€™ office staff was top-notch.
When my face began to show extreme signs of aging, I started losing my confidence and I felt like I had to try much harder at looking good. I spent an hour in the morning just doing my face and then when I saw myself in the mirror I would be discouraged. Before I had the procedure, I felt young on the inside but my outside didnâ€™t match. Now, I feel confident, radiant and like a complete person.I really feel as if Iâ€™m a positive influence on everyone who knows me because I am a different person.
