A large concern for many of Dr. Burgess’ Portland patients is a drooping brow line, as even the slightest change to the eye area can make a person look older. Aside from aging, men and women tell Dr. Burgess that their sagging brow makes them look continually tired, sad, or angry. Fortunately, Dr. Burgess performs a number of procedures, ranging from non-invasive to surgical, that can help to open the eye and restore a youthful brow line.

Dr. Burgess just returned from a cleft lip and palate mission in the Philippines with Clawson Medical Missions. Free surgical care was delivered to 50 children and young adults with the assistance of the Gift of Life Organization and Rotary. One young, 23 year old woman just wanted her speech to be improved after palate repair so that she could get a job. Other children just wanted to be able to go to school, since some affected children are not allowed to go to school by their families. Either way, the parents and children were really happy to see us back again this year but I think our surgical team missed them the most.
Beautiful and truly wondrous, bearing children is one of life’s miracles. Miraculous as it is, pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can each take a toll on a woman’s body.
