Plastic and Cosmetic Procedures
Plastic surgery comes from the word plastic, which originally referred to something that could be changed, shaped or molded. Within the field of plastic surgery, there are two main types of surgery: cosmetic and reconstructive. Cosmetic surgery includes procedures that are intended to enhance appearance and improve self esteem. The goal of reconstructive surgery is to restore function or shape because of damage suffered through injury, surgery or a problem that was present at birth.
Here at Dr. Busby’s Portland, Oregon office, we specialize in a number of procedures, specifically breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lifts, breast reconstruction, tummy tucks, suction assisted lipectomy, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, facelift and injectable agents (i.e. Botox and other fillers)
