Are you a patient of Ronald V. DeMars, MD?
I've chosen to have my TT/MR/BA/Lipo with Dr DeMars in Portland Or. Have seen very few reviews of women my age having this type of surgery. Would love to hear from you ladies over 40 about your healing experiences. Preparation suggestions? Handy dandy must have gadgets? Will do the pre body pictures in the next few days. My SX is in 14 days..my anticipation grows each day. I went to a...
5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover
Dr. DeMars and his staff were incredible from start to finish. Dr. DeMars has a calm, gentle confidence that is hard to find among most people in general, let alone popular plastic surgeons. Dr. DeMars came recommended to me, and is one of the best in my area. After a few minutes in the room with him, I knew he was the surgeon for me. I never felt the need to micromanage him, I only carefully explained the result I was after and trusted that his 30+ years of experience would help him make better decisions about the details of my tummy tuck and breast augmentation than I ever could. His skill and artistry gave me the body of my dreams. If you are looking for a Rico Suave Dr. 90210 type with high-pressure sales tactics and recommendations for a billion procedures you didn't ask for, don't go here. If what you want is a relaxed atmosphere and and a brilliant surgeon who treats his craft like artistry and his patients like family, go see Dr. DeMars. You won't regret it.

My experience with Dr. DeMars was exceptional, from the first consultation through the surgery. Dr. asked numerous questions and listened as I responded with what I hoped for, what I had been dissatisfied with for years, and then he provided some options to consider. The background story is that in my mid-30s' I had a consultation with a different dr in a different state and had hoped to get a...
I had a lower face lift 5 years ago in Portland. I am very unhappy with the results. I was really looking forward to having a better looking jaw line and neck but the results look more like puckering of the skin under my chin. It is so obvious that I had work done and it looks horrible. My advice..age naturally unless you can be guaranteed This won't happen to you.

My doctor is amazing
I have been meaning to write this for a while. I am a mother of two, an 8 year old and a 5 year old. I got a breast reduction when I was 19 because of my large, saggy, droopy breasts. I was so happy after the reduction that I finally had normal boobs that were not stretching my skin out. I developed boobs very early in the 5th grade and was surpassing a double d in Middle School. By high...

Dr. DeMars and his staff were amazing they answered all my questions before and after, and made me feel comfortable through the whole process. I am beyond happy with my results I love them! I went from a 34A to about a 34DD. I did the silicone implant under the muscle and I can't find my card right now but I believe they used 520cc's

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
I initially contacted Dr. DeMars back in May 2015 for a breast reduction and spoke with Tish in financial about insurance, costs, and time frame. From there I was able to get insurance approval and scheduled my reduction for November 2015. The pre-op appointment went smoothly, Dr. DeMars explained the benefits and possible drawbacks to having a breast reduction. He explained the process and...
I believe in the artistry involved in plastic surgery & the importance of the doctor-patient relationship. I spend time before the surgery getting to know each patient & their individual aesthetic goals & desires to ensure that they receive the unique, personalized attention and results they deserve
