5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Better than I ever could have hoped for

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Burgess, her staff and the hospital where my breast augmentation was performed. The moment I walked into her office I immediately felt comfortable and assured that I had found the right doctor to perform this procedure that I had wanted for the last 20 years and finally built up enough courage to have done. I searched around for doctors in both Las...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

480 Cc Silicone

I was plagued with tubular breast my whole life and just wanted them to be normal. Dr Elisa burgess gave me a much more womanly look and has changed my life I'm sure I'll need a redo eventually as the nipples are still so low and the bottom still needs more fill out! I am very happy I do hope however that in months to come and the healing process they will drop and fluff out to look more...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

The right surgeon make all the difference! Dr. Burgess did just that!

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Burgess and her staff. After two consults with other doctors, my fears and apprehensions were climbing. My consult with Dr. Burgess provided a wealth of information tailored to my personal needs. She included visual aids, pros and cons, explanations of options, and answered every question that I had. She even welcomed my husband to each appointment...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

Exceeded all of my expectations!!

The moment you walk in the door of Dr. Burgess's office you are met with warmth and professionalism from everyone on her team. It immediately provided me with a calming confidence in the practice. I knew that this was going to be my place! What I didn't know was that Dr. Burgess would not only become my surgeon, she would become my Guardian Angel as well! I had been struggling personally for...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Back pain, shoulder pain GONE!!

I was so nervous at my initial appointment with Dr. Burgess to discuss a breast reduction. She explained the procedure, what to expect after surgery and the months following. My mind was put at ease with her professionalism and friendly personality! Surgery was done six months ago and I couldn't be happier!! Thank you Dr. Burgess and staff for taking such good care of me.

49 Y.o. - Lake Oswego, OR

Dr. Burgess is amasing specialist and very professional surgeon . Dr. Burgess is not only a doctor, she is also amazing designer. I consider her job as an art. She made me so much happier by offering me her own opinion. Even though i did not understand exactly how I am going to look and feel after surgery. Before I have made my mind up about the doctor, that I am going to trust my own body...

5 out of 5 stars Yag Laser

Dr. Burgess and Team Are Top Notch - Lake Oswego, OR

As a man, I was a little reluctant to see a plastic surgeon about what I could do as I turned 50 to freshen up my look. But they made me feel comfortable, and with noninvasive simple procedures have me looking and feeling like I am 40 again. Good skin care regimen, some use of lasers etc to smooth out the skin, and voila I feel like my skin has never looked better.

I had a silicone "gummy bear" breast augmentation with Dr. Burgess 2 weeks ago and could not be happier with my results and the experience as a whole.
