Liposuction in Portland

Liposuction Doctor Near You

Looking for liposuction in Portland? Need liposuction prices? You’ve come to the right spot. Aesthetic Medicine has performed Liposuction in Portland on over 10,000 patients since 1995. Today, Dr. Darm and his team perform his perfected method which is a safer and more effective form of liposuction called LipoLift™ which is a laser-assisted liposuction procedure (laser lipolysis) that removes fat from the body. This minimally invasive surgical procedure is a popular body sculpting solution that “melts” fat with less pain, less downtime, and consistently favorable results. The laser is slipped thru a very small hole in the skin and passed back and forth slowly dissolving fat and fat cells. The melted fat is then gently sucked out through a small cannula. One to two liters of fat can be removed during the procedure. Treatment areas include the abdomen, flanks, arms, neck, and thighs.

Unlike some national providers, you’ll always meet with a medical professional before your surgery. We’ll also perform a full medical history and physical (H&P), Electrocardiogram (ECG), and blood workup to ensure that you’re a good candidate for the procedure. Once the procedure is completed, your physician will schedule follow-up appointments to review your results.

Why We Prefer Laser Liposuction

Understanding the different liposuction techniques is very important before deciding what you are getting and the procedure you really want. Liposuction is also known as lipoplasty is a technique most commonly used in cosmetic surgery for removing excess fat, body sculpting, and contouring. Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed and continues to grow.

We use Laser Assisted Liposuction or LAL. This procedure utilizes a laser device to gently melt the fat and then a mechanical vacuum device to suction out the fat. This technique has less downtime, faster recovery, and with the heat of the laser adds skin tightening to all the areas treated. A local infiltration with lidocaine anesthesia can be used to numb the area treated while the patient is awake. To relax the patient a light oral sedative is optional and is used in many cases. Many manufacturers have marketed these lasers to the public including SmartLipo, SlimLipo, LipoLite, and TickleLipo to name a few. The device that we use is the SlimLipo by Palomar which we believe to be a superior device given our experience. The puncture wounds are very small, about the size of a cocktail straw, without requiring suturing and usually heal without significant scarring. The procedure is quick, comfortable and very effective at eliminating unwanted subcutaneous fat. Normally only one day is required to recover. A compression garment is then worn for 3 weeks to maximize results.

What Should I Expect Before And After Liposuction?

At your scheduled consultation you will be greeted by a Wellness Consultant who will take you to a private office to watch a short video segment which visually explains the procedure. You will be shown before and after photos of previous patients to allow you a visual conception of what the procedure and physicians techniques have achieved in past cases.

The photos shown will only be of patients who have given written consent to show their images. You will  see a medical professional to determine if you may be a candidate for the procedure. This is done to determine your health status, medications, and to answer your medical questions before committing to the procedure.

Once this is completed if you are a candidate and you are interested in moving forward all of your financial paperwork will be processed and your blood work and EKG will be completed for the physician to review before your history and physical. Your before photos will be taken as well for your clinical chart records and your appointment will be scheduled. Then prior to the procedure a physician or nurse practitioner will perform a full history and physical. If at that time it is determined that you are not a candidate you will receive a full refund, and will not be charged for the blood work, EKG, or history and physical.

I noticed a difference in my chin line immediately after the post-surgery bandages were removed. I could see the full effect in my next picture...I do have a chin!The staff was courteous and follow-up visits were easy and helpful. When I asked for a refill of the topical cream that was used for massaging the surgery site, it was given happily at no additional charge.The only thing I was not happy with result wise is the condition of my skin in that area. It is a little loose. When I move my head a certain way, it crinkles up under my chin.I am still very glad I had the surgery.read more

You have to do a lot of research on the procedure that you are having done. They show a lot of before and after pictures of clients, but don't tell how many treatments it took to acquire that result. Before signing on for Laser lift it was mentioned that a filler could enhance the results. After 4 treatments I am less than satisfied and finding out that most clients do fillers as part of the treatment. I hope at the end of 8 treatments I can see better resultsread more

I mostly utilize the fillers. Great prices and the "injector" doctor has a great eye for aesthetics. Very friendly, down to earth, and knows his stuff. I get so many compliments from friends after a session with Aesthetic Medicine Spa/Clinic. I'll keep going back.read more

I didn't want to have any procedure done to get rid of my extra abdominal fat.I tried all kinds of exercises, belts and diet. I couldn't lose that stubborn fat. Then I went to see Dr. Darm for consultation , I did the lipo.That was one of the best decisions that I made. I am now comfortable wearing any dress I like and my body looks the same as twenty years ago.read more

Erica and Rosie are so incredibly kind! I can't express how much I appreciate their caring demeanor and compassion, I was scared out of my mind and they put me right at ease. Now that it's over I can say that the pain is so insignificant and I had nothing to worry about. Dr. Darm and Dr. Zawacki are equally as kind, I appreciate them and the service they provide. It's been a week since my procedure and I am so happy with the results so far and the swelling hasn't even gone down all the way. I can only imagine how happy I will be once everything has settled and healed. Thank you to the entire team. 🙂 I am recommending you to all my friends.read more

I have had both liposuction and a bracheoplasty and am pleased with the results. I don't look 40 again (I"m 72) but I'm not embarrassed to wear short sleeves any more and my neck is very much improved. I have had several areas done, and have some ideas for some more in the future. I think the liposuction technique they use is superior to that done by other clinics and wouldn't have that done anywhere else.The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the doctors are quite skilled, and I would recommend the clinic to anyone thinking about the procedure.read more

I was very happy with my results and would recommend Aesthetic Medicine to anyone wanting to look your best.I was surprised that in my initial consultation I actually saw Dr. Darm. He listened to what I had in mind and after his evaluation, gave me a realistic assessment of what I could achieve with the treatment I had in mind. The staff at Aesthetic Medicine is very professional, welcoming and responsive. I am looking forward to my next procedure.read more

I had three areas done with the Lipolift procedure with Dr. Darm and Dr. Z. The whole team, Dr. Darm, Dr. Z. Nicole, Rachel, Rosie, and the staff were incredibly caring and sensitive to my needs. Cosmetic surgery is an emotional experience and the doctors, nurses, and staff understand this! In fact, I had my consultation with Dr. Darm three months before I scheduled my procedures. He honored the discount without hesitation and never pressured me to do more or come in sooner than I was ready! I highly recommend Aesthetic Medicine!read more
