Orange County Plastic Surgeon to Host Minimally-Invasive Body Contouring Event

LAGUNA BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 11, 2012) - 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) 681-9956.

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.
