As I approached 50, I noticed ever so slightly the changes in my facial features,i.e,. Puffiness beneath eyes, laxity in jowl region and beneath chin area. I was never happy with the tip of my nose as it appeared somewhat broad/boxy. My face appeared more drawn and lacked the "Luster" it once had in my youth. Off and on I would receive comments that were not meant to be offensive, but... more
I choose a facelift. I did my research, meet with Dr DeMars. His staff put me at ease immediately. I will admit it I was anxious not sure what I to ask, the questions I should of asked were all answered. Recovery was better than expected, I started to appreciate my new look in just a few weeks. Best part I love the person in the mirror. more
I can see why Dr. Chan was voted Top Doctor in Portland, OR. He is Wonderful! I can't say enough good things about Dr Chan and his staff. I had a face lift and co2 laser treatment, also Botox, Juvederm and other fillers. Every procedure was handled professionally and fully explained. Dr. Chan was very thourough and easy to talk to. He and his staff were all personable, caring and kind. I... more
I had a lower facelift which involved repositioning the muscles in my face and tightening the skin on my chin and neck. I was very concerned about achieving a natural result -- looking just like myself only refreshed. Dr. Wang assured me this was his goal too and he delivered. Four months after surgery I had my annual dermatology appointment and my doctor commented on how good I looked but... more
I too have had procedures by Dr Chan and they have turned out beautifully! I have been nothing but pleased with the results. Part of these procedures included injectable's and I have no lumps, but perfectly smoothed out skin. In fact, within the last 60 days I have been told that I appear to be aging in reverse - by people that have no idea that I went to see a plastic surgeon. (that is a HUGE... more
Pros for this procedure: minimal scars, short recovery time, wonderful office staff, and
Dr. Chan is very, very good at what he does. The pros far outweigh the cons, but there was some numbness in front of the ear area, no big deal.
For the last 2 or 3 years I was feeling like I had jowls and my face just looked old. I also had an eye lift and liposuction for the neck area. My goals were... more
Years spent as a smoking sun goddess certainly made a mark on me and of course, the daily stressers of balancing work, family and just living added their marks too. Sometimes age does bring wisdom--2 years ago I quit smoking, stopped baking myself, started eating right and exercising, decided I can't control or cure everything so stop stressing over it and decided it was time to do something... more
I was feeling like I looked older than I really was. I made the decision to have something done-- wasn't sure what was needed. Spoke with Dr. Chan and he recommended a facelift.
6 months later and I look great. Have had so many compliments-- went to dinner with my husband and was actually asked for my ID. more
I needed some help to look as young as I feel. Despite the natural aging process, I spent a number of unforgivable years in the Southern California sun . . ..so, I needed a “second chance” or "do-over" make-over. Thanks to all of you, I feel that wish has been granted!
The series of Botox treatments have done wonders in getting rid of my “depression scowl.” I now look more... more
I had my surgery performed two weeks later and only wish I'd had it sooner! I experienced no discomfort after surgery and 5 days later actually went out in public! At that point I had minimal swelling and minor bruises but not enough to make me uncomfortable in public. I was constantly assured that if I had questions or concerns, the doctor was there for me. It's been a year now since my... more
The results were better than I expected and no one knows what I had done ... all they say is, "Wow, you look great. Have you been working out a lot?" I don't know if I'll have any further "work" done but if I did, I would definitely go back to Dr. Magilke. more
I had my surgery over 7 years ago and have regretted it every single day since I had it. I personally believe that most women who have surgery are very insecure and mentally unstable. When I was younger I was beautiful and was desperate to hang onto my looks in middle age. How vain. Instead of realizing that there is more to life than how I look, I got caught up in the media hype that only... more
