Get Selfie-Ready with Non-Surgical Lip Augmentation

Wednesday, July 31st, 2019

Full, plump lips are a sign of youthfulness and vitality, but many people have lips that are either naturally thin or have thinned out with age. Thin or asymmetrical lips can make you self-conscious about your smile, and you may end up avoiding photos or using makeup or filters to create an impression of plumper lips.

Here at Burgess Plastic Surgery in Portland, OR, we offer a number of injectable fillers that can be used to plump and shape the lips. Lip filler injections are a quick and relatively painless procedure, with immediately visible results. Call our office at 503-699-6464 to schedule your appointment today. (more…)

Is Jeuveau™ the New BOTOX® Cosmetic?

Thursday, June 27th, 2019

There’s a new injectable neurotoxin on the block, and its name is Jeuveau™. It’s also been lovingly coined “NewTox,” because it works the same way as BOTOX® Cosmetic. One is not better than the other, but treatments may indicate that Jeuveau™ injections may last longer. We also know many of our patients are BOTOX® loyalists, and we still trust its results, reputation and efficacy as well. Therefore, we’re happy to provide both of these options to patients at our Lake Oswego practice. Give both a try and see which one you prefer! To learn more, please call Burgess Plastic Surgery at 503-699-6464. (more…)

Men and women from their 40s to 60s opt for these procedures to turn back the hands of time for a youthful look. However, millions of people are taking action much earlier in order to slow and prevent these visible signs of aging. With the wrinkle-fighting results that Botox® provides without incisions, people are becoming much more proactive in the fight against visible signs of aging.

Thumbs Up for Cheek Filler

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

Juvederm could be FDA approved for cheek augmentation later this year.

girl in bushesA Food and Drug Administration (FDA) panel has recommended that the agency approve Juvéderm Voluma XC for cheek augmentation. Approval would make Juvederm the first injectable dermal filler with FDA indications for mid-face volume restoration.

A gel composed of hyaluronic acid suspended in phosphate buffered saline with 0.3 percent Lidocaine, Juvéderm Voluma helps restore deep volume loss and smooths the mid-face, rejuvenating sunken areas around the cheeks, re-creating youthful contour and fullness. The results are instant, natural looking and can last up to 18 months. There’s little if any downtime – most people resume normal activities immediately.

Based on the clinical trial data presented, the FDA’s General and Plastic Surgery Devices Panel agreed that the product is effective and safe and the benefits outweigh the risks. The most frequent common treatment site responses (CTRs) reported in the trial were tenderness, swelling, and firmness.

FDA reviewers noted that the incidence of CTRs decreased for subjects receiving touch-up and repeat treatments. More than half (52.8 percent) of subjects received the optional retreatment at the end of the extended follow-up period “suggesting these subjects perceived an acceptable benefit/risk profile for [its] continued use,” the reviewers said.

An additional consensus was that Juvéderm Voluma XC fills more than cheeks, meeting the needs of what people want in plastic surgery. According to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), in 2012 nearly 2 million people had soft tissue filler augmentation, representing a 205 percent increase since 2000.
