Are you considering surgery to enhance your overall look and improve your self confidence? Your decision to undergo plastic surgery is a very personal and important one. It requires mutual understanding and rapport between patient and surgeon. Part of that understanding is allowing enough time to thoroughly understand the details about any desired procedure. At OHSU, our providers will take the time to answer your questions, discuss options and help set your expectations.
Explore our surgical options for the face, breast, body, leg and arm. Your surgery results depend on both the surgeon’s capacities, but also the limitations of each person’s type of skin, bone structure, healing capability and overall health. If any limitations exist, your doctor will explain them to you in detail during your consultation. Certain patients simply are not good candidates for surgery, and may be understandably disappointed when plastic surgery is not recommended or is delayed until a more appropriate time when results will be better.
The goal of cosmetic surgery is to make you look as good as it is possible for you to look. We always try to produce "natural" features, thereby improving appearance and minimizing facial abnormality. When we discuss the various procedures in this website, we are speaking in terms of the average case; individual variations certainly exist.
