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 received his Doctor of Medicine degree from the Georgetown University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C., where he completed a General Surgery residency at Texas Tech University and then went on to complete a Plastic Surgery residency at the prestigious Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina (where he served his final year as Chief Resident).
Dr. Millard is the founder of the Advanced Body Sculpting Institute (ABS-Institute), an institution dedicated to providing courses in leading-edge body sculpting procedures for physicians. Courses have been taught to surgeons coming worldwide including Tokyo, London, Austria, Argentina, Colombia, Portugal, Italy, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia. Dr. Millard currently teaches physicians in almost all aspects of liposuction and liposculpting, both basic and advanced.
Dr. Millard is also proud to have served his country as a Flight Surgeon for the U-2 Spy Plane in the United States Air Force. There, he had instilled in him an attention to detail and an uncompromising commitment to quality and safety. These characteristics have stayed with him, contributing to his excellence as a plastic and cosmetic surgeon today. Dr. Millard instituted pioneering safety measures, including the concepts of Crew Resource Management and Checklists, to his surgical management of patients at the Renewal Surgery Center. He did this years ahead of the specialty of Plastic Surgery itself, which made its first recommendations for “checklists” in a publication in late 2013.
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.
