5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Active Mom - 40's - Bra/ Line / Upper Abs - Stubborn Fat Be Gone. Newport Beach, CA

Dr Miller is very nice and patient, as he addressed my questions. He is very talented and personable, takes time to listen to you.

5 out of 5 stars Mini Lift

49 Year Old Male Gets Mini Lift Including Neck Lipo and Platsymalplasty - Newport Beach, CA

Dr. Todd Miller is my hero. I decided to go to him because he is a specialist with face and neck. He has the most incredible bed side manners, always available when I needed to consult and ask questions, and was always there post op to attend to my follow up needs. This is my second procedure with Dr Miller. Should I need a 3rd procedure, I will return to him in a heartbeat. His office is professional and you feel like family among his wonderful staff. I interviewed many doctors in the area, some with very expensive looking and pretentious waiting rooms that quite honestly really didn't impress me. I am more interested in finding an office that is practical , professional, and warm. I found that with Dr Todd Miller. He is my " go to" doctor for all my cosmetic surgery needs. Absolutely the best ! Cannot speak more highly of him and his staff!

5 out of 5 stars CO2 Laser

Co2 Dot Laser. Totally Worth It!! Newport Beach, CA

Wonderful experience! My skin looks amazing after the laser treatment. I keep getting comments on it. Dr Miller and his staff took such good care of me. I'll be doing it again in a couple of years! There really is nothing else that works to rejuvenate the skin than laser. All the creams and serums money can buy don't compare.

5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser

5 out of 5 stars Laser Resurfacing

Dr. Todd Miller is Incredible ! I Highly Recommend Him. Newport Beach, CA

Dr. Todd Miller is nothing short of incredible. He is patient, a good listener, and always returns emails and phone calls in a timely manner. He is a specialist of head and neck ONLY and that was important to me. I absolutely plan to return to him for further work in the near future. I visited 5 different surgeons before I decided on Dr. Miller. I am glad I found him. I think you will too.

5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser

Years of Sun Left my Skin Rough and Spotty…needed a Good Laser Treatment! Newport Beach, CA

Dr. Miller was friendly and engaging! He listened to my concerns and made me feel comfortable and cared for. He seemed professional and extremely competent to perform my procedure. He then sent me away with aftercare instructions and moisturizing products. He also checked in a few days later to make sure all was well. I highly recommend Dr. Miller!!

Face Lift and Eye Lids Surgery - Newport Beach, CA

I had visited several surgeons, and I decided for Dr. Miller after careful observation on several criteria: surgeons age, hands and stability in their speech, body and physique along with background as well as recommendation from a doctor friend who was given green light with Dr. Miller as compared to others in different area of Los Angeles and Orange County and even in Mumbai, India. Various combination fo procedures by Dr. Miller and options were evaluated as Dr. Miller was unselfish in his suggestions. I chose the best option that was recommended as he said with confidence that I will be happy with the results. I was preparing for my film role that I am working on to do in India, and I have done a film in the past ( "The Sazishi-The Plotter" : on utube) , some 20 years back. I wanted to get back to films and wanted to go back some years in my looks...I didn't want to jeopardise my life with experiments on my face.....I told Dr. Miller what I want...not too tight look, natural look while erasing as many years as possible from my face.... The procedure is not as scary as it sounds when surgeons talked about detail of could scare the heck out of people at the first hearing it.....but when it came down to it....I was in his office-Clinique for 5 hours, his anesthesiologist knew what he was doing and told me that I will be comfortable during the procedure. I went home the same day, I had a family member stay with me..I followed Dr. Millers instructions and after the second day I was independent in my home taking care of my face and following the instruction. With pain medications for three days, I was slowly observing the transformation on the face. I was not in pain, but in discomfort that I can manage for four more weeks of wearing the special face garment while sleeping. Now I got one more week to go before I can resume my exercise and will be ready to do my role...and yes, I can't wait to see the mirror when I wake up from nap or sleep at night..I do get little disturbed when I dream and see my old face...but it is all good after looking at the mirror. I congratulate Dr. Millr and his staff for performing world-class procedure and service. They were always ready to accommodate me for post-operative visits and even stayed late for me one day... Choosing the right surgeon for the right face was the most important decision I had to make and I was glad I made the right decision.. Overall rating- 5 stars plus Answered my question- 5 Stars plus After care and follow up-5 stars plus Time spent with me- 5 star Phone and email response_ Immediate and 5 star plus Staff professionalism and courtesy_ 5 Star plus. Wait time- 5 stars
