John A. Millard, M.D., a board certified plastic surgeon with the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, specializing in Breast, Body, and Extremity Cosmetic Surgery, is nationally and internationally renowned for his expertise in leading-edge breast and liposuction procedures.
A sought-after lecturer and teacher, Dr. Millard speaks and teaches throughout the world and has been teaching physicians the latest advanced techniques in liposuction, liposculpture and fat grafting since 2004. Dr. Millard is the founder of the Advanced Body Sculpting Institute, an institution dedicated to educating physicians on how to safely and effectively perform the newest cosmetic procedures in the field. He pioneered and was the first physician/surgeon to perform the VASER Hi Def procedure in the United States, which not only removes excess fat but also shapes the underlying tissue to create a toned athletic appearance in both men and women.
Dr. Millard’s reputation for innovation and surgical excellence attracts patients from all over the world. Some of his latest advances include the development of groundbreaking tools and techniques, including the use of the Image-Guided Ultrasound to transplant the patient’s own fat to almost every muscle and region of the body, with the most popular areas including male and female buttocks, the male chest and female breast, and in the arms and shoulders. He has revolutionized and advanced the technology of the VASER, with his development of the V5 probe, which has significantly reduced the ultrasound time while increasing efficiency, resulting in less pain, bruising and recovery and simultaneously reducing the time it takes to accomplish the procedure.
He has also developed a whole new line of aspiration and fat grafting technology, taking advantage of the benefits of the V5 probes, further reducing pain, bruising and recovery, while advancing safety. He has most recently been published in the new textbook of plastic surgery, Encyclopedia of Aesthetic Rejuvenation Through Volume Enhancement, which introduces the technique of 4D VASER Hi Def, which Dr. Millard developed.
Dr. Millard is currently authoring another textbook titled The Art and Science of Body Sculpting, which will be a comprehensive textbook teaching artistic anatomy, liposculpting and fat grafting throughout the human body. Previously published articles include those on VASER Hi Def in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, Gluteal Anatomy in the Journal of Reconstructive Microsurgery, and on the use of Intermittent Sequential Pneumatic Compression in the Prevention of Venous Stasis in the Archives of Surgery.
