5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

3rd Time Lucky! - Portland, OR

I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Popowich. He is a kind, compassionate, skilled surgeon that I would highly recommend!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

Complete Capsulectomy and Implant Removal Without Replacing Implants or a Lift - Portland, OR

I went for a consult because I have capsular contracture. Dr.Popowich had a great bedside manor and I felt like he understood my fears and concerns. Also, he did not encourage me to put new implants in like several other doctors did. I found him through a website search. I want you all to know the staff at Dr. Popowich office are wonderful. Jana CRNA (anesthesiology) Mary RN (pre/post) and Corrinn RN (surgery) Thay were all very attentive and very supportive of my decision I would highly recomend them :)

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

30 Yo, Needed a Push to my Fitness Goals. Portland, OR

Yale Popowich was calming and professional. He took his time to evaluate me and my personal preferences while not pushing a bunch of extra things on me. I didn't feel like I was in a sales pitch like I have in other clinics, this was a very nice experience.

Tired of looking ten years older than I am and continual neck and back pain. Met with Dr Popowich, made me feel very comfortable going forward with breast reduction and tummy tuck. 10 days out and I love my new look. Wish I did this 25 years ago!!! I recommend Dr Popowich highly. Can't wait to go shopping for new clothes.

35yo, 190, 44" Waist Coolsculpting - Portland, OR

May 2, 2014 - All of the reviews here for coolsculpting are from what i deem as "already thin" people. I am 5'7", 190lbs and i wear a size 16 jeans. I'm a big girl. I went into my doctor to discuss liposuction and he recommended coolsculpting. Apparently I have really strong abs underneath all this flab, and having someone take care of me for a few days would be really hard to organize, not to...
