Facial Plastic Surgery in Portland
Your face is often the first thing people see when they meet you, and Dr. Burgess offers a range of facial procedures to help you bring out your best features. Whether you’re looking to shave off a few years by minimizing wrinkles or are looking to decrease the size of protruding ears, Dr. Burgess has the experience and skill to help you achieve a beautiful result.
Bags under the eyes and drooping eyelids can make a person appear older and more tired than they actually are. Through small incisions, Dr. Burgess will remove the excess skin and tissue that cause this worn out appearance to reveal the revitalized individual underneath.
Using small incisions, Dr. Burgess will “lift” the skin above the brow, which may sag over time, leading to a heavy eyebrow appearance and excess skin over the eyes. Following a brow lift, expect to look more awake in your appearance.
Facelift and Necklift
Sagging jowls and “turkey neck” lead to an aged appearance, in which you look older than you feel. Dr. Burgess performs face and neck lift procedures to update your appearance. Through incisions along the hairline and possibly around the ear, she will remove excess tissue and tighten the skin. The look is still you and natural appearing, but more youthful and refreshed.
We are now able to offer a different approach to lifting the facial skin without surgery. Silhouette InstaLift helps reverse the signs of facial aging with immediate, natural-looking results. A great option for both men and women who do not want the downtime associated with surgery.
Ear Pinning Surgery
Protruding ears, which often show up in children as young as four years old, may be troublesome for an individual and may lead to teasing and self-confidence issues. Through a series of techniques, Dr. Burgess is able to shape and pin back the ears to make them more aesthetically pleasing.
Though medically-produced dermal fillers can be used to fill deep lines and wrinkles on the face beautifully, Dr. Burgess may also use the patient’s own excess fat deposits to add volume. In this procedure, small amounts of excess fat are liposuctioned out of carefully chosen sites (i.e. abdomen or thighs) and then lipoinjected into specific areas of the face, providing a more youthful visage.
ThermiSmooth® (face) and ThermiEyes®
Non-invasive, ThermiSmooth® is performed using a specially designed temperature controlled hand piece. The hand piece gently heats the skin’s surface using dermal heating, which creates collagen stimulation. This provides a smoothing and lifting effect slowly over months. ThermiEyes® is used to treat areas around the eye that need a lift or that has crepey skin. It can also treat the forehead, cheeks, neck and lines around the mouth. There is no downtime for these treatments and can typically be done as a series of 3-6 treatments.
