5 out of 5 stars TCA Peel

56 Years Old, Wanted Spots Off, Clearer Look and Smoother Face! - Aliso Viejo, CA

Dr. Miller is a bright smiling cheerful, very positive doc. He explained it all, had his gal helping prepare my face to numb it a little and even got me a blanket in case I got cold. I sat in a lovely leather comfy chair and Dr. Miller did the peel, seemed like 10-15 mins. I looked absolutely normal leaving with the correct cream on and some to take with me and felt comfortable and completely fine! I even went to run my errands... That evening it was easy and by morning it was tightening a bit (exciting) and within a few days it was fully peeling. There was no pain, simply needed to watch the peeling fall off or lightly pulling ladies! I even went to a wedding planning mtg and then a bridal shower!! The face took about 2 weeks to be done completely and the arms were super easy and just sloughed off! I had "baby bottom" skin again. My face felt and looked gr8! I was and am thrilled! Dr. Miller is very pleasant, explanatory, good listener and has THE MOST COMFORTABLE and lovely office. A really wonderful, happy and worthwhile office to beautify! I have gone back several times...

5 out of 5 stars Ultherapy

Ultherapy is Helping Me Wage the War Against Lax Skin on my Neck - Aliso Viejo, CA

Dr. Miller is a wonderful and truly talented doctor. He is thorough and meticulous and very patient in explaining what will happen and answering any questions that you might have. He does not rush you through but is truly concerned about making sure you are comfortable. He cares about making sure that you get the result that you want and will spend the time with you before and after to be sure that you do. He is very "cutting edge" in the services he provides and offers a complete range of treatments from the less invasive ones like Ultherapy, to lasers and fillers to all types of surgical options. He is extremely knowledgeable and practiced in all areas of the face and neck. He is the type of doctor you immediately know upon meeting him that you can trust.

Happy 60th Birthday - Aliso Viejo, CA

Dr. Miller made an assessment of what he thought should be addressed in the surgery. He pointed out issues that I had not considered and of course - he was right. I think we as individuals tend to "edit" what we see when we look in the mirror or don't realize all of what is causing us to look older. I appreciate his candidness and artistic eye, this made for a much better outcome.

I Am 65, Married for 32 Years and Have Two Grown Children. - Aliso Viejo, CA

Dr. Miller is wonderful! He is extremely qualified and a gentle and caring person. I had thought about having a face lift for a long time but felt daunted by the task of finding the right surgeon. Then I met my friend Barbara. She looked amazing for being a few years older than myself. She showed me pictures of herself before her facelift with Dr. Miller. She told me how she spent four years researching until she found Dr. Miller! After meeting him there was no doubt left in my mind that, when I was ready, Dr. Miller was the one!!!
