Plastic Surgeon in San Diego Appears on UCSD TV

San Diego, CA — Dr. Scott Miller, a plastic surgeon in San Diego, was recently asked to appear on the Health Matters segment of the University of California San Diego Television program to discuss the Latest in Cosmetic Surgery Procedures. A Volunteer Clinical Instructor at the School of Medicine at UCSD, Dr. Miller spoke with Health Matters host Dr. David Granet about recent advances in cosmetic enhancement and the complexities of aesthetic treatment, and says he hopes to guide viewers through expectations of common procedures by offering advice on how to make a decision about which treatment will be best for their needs.

The University of California San Diego Television program Health Matters recently featured Dr. Miller to highlight the top trends in cosmetic surgery and offer advice to patients who may be considering an aesthetic procedure. The thirty minute program covered some of the most popular procedures in plastic surgery and discussed the sometimes overwhelming decisions behind undergoing a cosmetic enhancement. Focused on procedures ranging from facelifts and tummy tucks to breast augmentation in San Diego, Dr. Miller says he was grateful for the opportunity to share his experience in plastic surgery with the show and hopes viewers were able to take away valuable information to help them make educated decisions regarding their care and procedures.

Dr. Miller notes on the Health Matters episode that he has seen a surge in popularity of procedures such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and facelift in San Diego. He attributes this to lessened social stigma concerning cosmetic enhancements and an improvement in the natural quality of results, leading to an increase in approval amongst Americans. However, he also says the decision to undergo plastic surgery is one that should be taken seriously, adding that many of his patients put years of thought and research into their procedure. Dr. Miller also discusses the influence of advanced technology and techniques on the demand for aesthetic surgery and how patients can now experience less down time and more effective and natural results than ever before. “My appearance on the UCSD Health Matters Program was a rewarding experience. I was able to further my mission to provide accurate information to the public, allowing people to make the best individual decisions for their own health.”

Dr. Miller says he hopes his appearance on Health Matters both inspires and informs future patients and doctors about the importance of pursuing safe, effective, and individualized treatment options in cosmetic surgery. He is excited to see the future of San Diego plastic surgery procedures as more people gain awareness of what high quality plastic surgery has to offer and Board Certified plastic surgeons continue perfecting the techniques and technology designed to help people restore their confidence and beauty. “Programs like UCSD TV help ethical Plastic Surgeons shatter myths, educate the public and fellow physicians, and share their commitment to the importance of pursuing the highest quality patient care and results.”
