Based on an immediate need, Dr Soares was professional, engaging, caring, throughout my perceived emergency need. He additionally, gave of his time and attention at the end of the day, and after hours; making us feel individually a priority. The Doctor's staff and office followed the same professional demeanor. I have no issues recommending Dr. Soares in making the best of a stressful situation.

I needed extensive reconstruction of my nose because of skin cancer damage. Dr Mills was the best in my experience so far and unfortunately I have undergone quite a few repair type surgeries over the years. Her care and dedication was great, I trusted her judgement immediately and she did not disappoint. I am ready to continue on to the next step as I am so delighted with the results so far! I cannot recommend Dr Mills too highly.

My son-in-law, Kyle Self (a nurse at Cottage) highly recommended Dr. Soares. I came in for an eyelid consult (upper blepharoplasty). I found Dr. Soares direct, clear, reassuring, gentle, personable and flexible. I truly appreciate the flexibility he offered in scheduling (as I live in Sacramento) and pricing (as I have Medicare but through Kaiser) for the procedure. I plan to schedule Dr. Soares to do the work the next time I'm in Santa Barbara (probably August but maybe June -- as you suggested I'll contact your office 2-3 weeks prior). Thank you!. And enjoy your trip to Mexico!

I met with Dr. Soares for a consultation for a scheduled necklift. He explained the procedure thoroughly and answered my questions, giving me his full attention.

From my first phone call to schedule a consultation I’ve been met with kindness from all the staff, Dr Soares and his PA Courtney. When I decided to schedule my tummy tuck I was most certainly concerned with if this was the best route for me. Dr Marc Soares gave me options and let me make my own decision. I never felt any sort of pressure at all. Now that I am almost 2 weeks from recovering from my tummy tuck I feel even more cared for. Dr Marc even gives his cell number that he will answer for any questions. He is so kind and humble. I also work with him at the hospital but believe it or not have not seen a lot of his cosmetic work. (I’m part time and his cosmetic days are my days off) But I can assure you…He is an artist. The first time I saw my new slim body I almost cried. My stomach looks amazing. Shapely. And the incision is nice and low and my belly button is adorable. Those two things were very important to me. At my post op he explained to me exactly where he did lips and why. I’m just so happy that I did this surgery and that I chose Dr Marc. A genuine nice man with fantastic surgical skills. My girlfriend is now considering a tummy tuck too but only with Dr Soares.

Hi, I have struggled with my weight all my life So I had sleeve surgery in 2020 and after my weight loss, I still had a large spare tire and love handles. I had a tummy tuck and liposuction by Dr Gina Mills, on 2/24/23 and I am so happy with my results. Just 2 weeks ago! I cry when I look at myself now in pictures and mirror. I am 53 and feel beautiful, sexy and more like the person I was meant to be. This truly gave me the confidence lift that I needed to go to the gym, my tummy won’t be in the way , I will be rocking bikinis in Las Vegas by the pool, wearing clothes I never thought I would wear. Thank you so much !!! This office has an amazing staff as well. Dr Mills, Thank you so much !! I can’t thank you enough for what you have done for me !! ❤️Sheri.

Emergency surgery in the middle of the night. Dr. Soares managed to get an operating crew and did an incredible job reconstructing my mouth/lips.

During my entire process with Aesthetic Center for PS, Doctor Gina Mills has been nothing but positive, supportive, kind, and open-minded. Through the beginning of my journey I had major issues with my breasts in which she was able to help. During the whole process she reassured me with any questions and concerns I had and made me comfortable from the start. Her wonderful and kind team in her office also did their best to get me the best schedule possible from my first appointment, pre-op appt, surgery day, and follow ups. They made this journey just as smooth! As for the surgery day, her staff at Goleta Hospital could not have treated me any better. Very well-rounded communication skills through everybody and most importantly a safe one to say the least. She continued to make my surgery day as professional as possible while also maintaining sanitary protocols. As I am now recovering with a 2 month post op, I can surely state that Doctor Gina Mills worked amazing wonders and gave me the best results I could ever imagine. She has surely changed my life for the better and I can't wait to see the full recovery. I would highly recommend anybody to her because she is one of the best plastic surgeons out there.
