5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Love my New Hot Bod!

I had a breast lift/reduction and a tummy tuck. I have been mildly overweight my whole life, but after having 2 large babies (over 9 pounds each), my tummy was squishy and even when I lost weight, it would not become flatter. Also, my breasts were size 38 DDD, very pendulous breasts. I felt ugly and my clothes didn't fit like I wanted them too. After many years of deliberation, I decided to...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

It's My Turn TT AND A BA - Portland, OR

I'm a mom of 3 and the wife of a injured soldier. I worked took care of our kids and him while he was recovering. 5 years later I was a mommy of 3 weighing164lbs and was 5'2". I looked in the mirror and I did not recognize the person looking back at me. Even though my husband is amazing and always tells me I'm beautiful I feel so ugly and fat. No matter how much I exercise the...

5 out of 5 stars Ultherapy

Not Too Painful, Fingers Crossed - Portland, OR

I went to a new practitioner that I have never seen before. I went with the intention of getting some juvederm injections as my face is very thin and getting a bit saggy as I age. The Dr. listened to what I wanted and said that I would be a good candidate for ultherapy. A surgical facelift would be too much for me as the changes I desired weren't so dramatic as to require one, but at the same...

Lot of loose skin following Gastric Bypass surgery

5 out of 5 stars Radiesse

I Love my Treatment and Excellent Experience with the Clinic - Portland, OR

I had a cheek augmentation done with Radiesse. It was preformed by one of the staff there who is a PA. She was really wonderful. I am so bad with names. I will have to find her name and update this. She was extremely gentle, friendly, and I am very pleased with my results. I had one large tube injected into each cheek. It was virtually painless. I decided to get radiesse because of loss...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

26, 100lbs, 5'3", 286cc Unders!

I'm currently 2 days post-op! Everything has been going well. I had my surgery at 7:30am this past Wednesday, and was home before 11 :) Before meeting with my surgeon, I assumed I would get at least 300ccs, based on online browsing. But as you all know, that's not exactly how this works! I was barely a 32A before, and my surgeon said the largest she would go would be 286. I am now so...

5 out of 5 stars Acne Scars Treatment

I Had a Wonderful Experience with the Entire Staff at The Waldorf Center. - California

I had a wonderful experience with the entire staff at The Waldorf Center. Dr. Waldorf was attentive and caring. She listened to my needs and provided me with the results I wanted. I was even impressed with the little stuff- like not waiting in the lobby long before my appointments. I was seen on time every time. Thank you for everything!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Two Surgeries from Kathryn Waldorf - Portland, OR

I had a breast reduction back in 2002 followed by a tummy tuck this year 2013. I was amazed to see how personable and caring the entire staff was. Although I had an allergic reaction to the stitches and tape. I would still use the waldorf center because when you are having something as personable as breast reduction or tummy tuck you want to be under the care of a great medical and surgical...

5 out of 5 stars Body Lift

41 Year Old, Circumferential LBL with Mastopexty and Breast Augmentation - Portland, OR

Two children , major weight gains, then massive weight loss, I was left with sagging, baggy skin and drooping, deflated breasts. I work out 6 days a week and the bagging skin hides all my hard work. I felt I was still in a fat suit. That obscured my self perception and diminished my gains. So far, I am exceptionally pleased with my surgeon, her medical team, and practice staff.

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Perfect Pout - Portland, OR

Several years ago Dr Waldorf gave me an awesome new nose... so when I was ready to regain some volume in my lips I went back to the Waldorf Center. Kristina was so kind and did such an amazing job. LOVE LOVE LOVE my fuller lips that look sexy and natural. (And while numb added some upper lip botox) Yay! Bring on the lip gloss.
