Information for Potential Patients

Recent advancements in surgical technologies and techniques allow plastic surgeons to deliver remarkable aesthetic results while greatly reducing patients' recovery time. For example, the use of the latest liposuction techniques, such as tumescent liposuction, allows plastic surgeons to deliver better body sculpting results while reducing swelling, bruising and other post-operative discomforts. Patients are often pleasantly surprised that this liposuction approach requires only local anesthesia instead of general anesthesia — a difference that eliminates general anesthesia-related side effects, such as nausea and memory loss, and shortens post-operative recovery time. While advanced surgical techniques have greatly improved the safety of liposuction, potential patients should nevertheless be conscientious about this surgery. Perhaps the most important step of a successful liposuction treatment is the selection of an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon.

An excellent resource for finding a reliable board-certified plastic surgeon is the Consumer Guide to Plastic Surgery. Dr. DeMars is proud to be featured in this directory among other highly skilled plastic surgeons with offices throughout the country. Many patients have used this directory to find not only skilled Portland plastic surgeons specializing in liposuction, but also to locate surgeons offering breast augmentation with breast implants in Portland. Patients who undergo facial surgical procedures sometimes desire to complement their rejuvenated facial appearance with a bright, dazzling smile. To locate skilled Portland cosmetic dentists, many of them use the affiliated Consumer Guide to Dentistry.
