Top notch physician and staff

In between those procedures I have had Clear and Brilliant laser treatments every 2-3 months. The result is an overall improvement of the quality and appearance of my skin. The acne scars have not...

Didn't know what to expect & was nervous at first, but I honestly can't believe how easy it is. ZERO pain or discomfort!! Just imagine a warm massage. Super quick, no downtime. I went home and...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

39 Years Old, Breast Augmentation - Lake Oswego, OR

Dr. Elisa Burgess and her staff are very experienced, professional and helpful. Dr. Elisa Burgess with her great skills and expertise achieved realistic results that look very natural. I highly recommend Dr. Burgess to anyone considering plastic surgery. They have 3D software that allows you to play with different sizes only you body. They also have a special bra that allows you to try on different implant sizes. After the consultation, they went over the cost with me and financing options. Again...... I would highly recommend Dr. Burgess for breast augmentation!

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Burgess and her staff. After two consults with other doctors, my fears and apprehensions were climbing.
