Dr. Burgess Returns to the Philippines

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.

Over the years, fine lines, wrinkles, and facial sagging develop and become visible signs of one’s growing age.

Understanding her patient’s desire for rejuvenation, Dr. Burgess is pleased to offer Ultherapy at her Lake Oswego practice. A non-surgical treatment, Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy for FDA approved brow, face and neck lift.  Treatments can be done around the lips and on the décolletage can round out the enhancement.

Feeling that their skin has become lax—both looking and feeling less firm—men and women with mild to moderate skin laxity are ideal candidates for this treatment. Ultherapy can garner beautiful results.
