Portland’s natural beauty is something that we — along with most of the region’s residents — greatly value. And at our plastic surgery practice in Portland’s historic Albers Mill building on the Willamette River, we strive to create results that look natural, whether a patient is getting breast augmentation or eyelid surgery.
In Portland, we are often asked why we became plastic surgeons. Each of our paths was unique, of course, but we all share a passion for helping patients achieve their aesthetic goals. In some cases, we can reach those goals through BOTOX® Cosmetic and filler injections. For others, it might involve breast reconstruction surgery following a mastectomy. We value each patient as an individual and provide personalized treatment in a comfortable, compassionate environment.
Even though the stigma surrounding plastic surgery has faded significantly in recent years, many people still hesitate when considering cosmetic surgery. The truth is, we are inspired and even motivated by our patients, and the positive changes that occur in their lives is tremendously rewarding, not only to our surgeons, but our entire staff.
Cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery is a dynamic specialty that involves diverse treatments and procedures. That’s something that attracted our board-certified plastic surgeons in the first place. At Portland Plastic Surgery Group, our patients often come to consultations well-informed about the procedures they are considering.
We view this blog as another resource for women and men interested in aesthetic treatments to learn more about the newest procedures available, the cosmetic trends that may be influencing society, and our surgeons and staff. We will also address some of the issues that can be confusing, such as:
- What’s the difference between BOTOX and fillers?
- Is liposuction a weight-loss procedure?
- Will I look like I’ve had plastic surgery?
- How do I choose the right size breast implants?
These are common questions, and a blog is a great way to provide detailed information about surgical procedures or devices, or to discuss recent research and why the results matter to our patients. Our surgeons have more than 30 years of combined experience, training, and expertise in plastic surgery and look forward to sharing their passion for the field with you.
