“Dr. Bartholomew was very kind, supportive, and professional with everything. He helped ease my worries as I was considering surgery during a pandemic. He took the time to answer all my questions and the after care post surgery was above and beyond. He made sure that I was safe to go home and the care I received in the months following, made this whole experience worthwhile. He helped me get my life back. My quality of life has changed because of Dr. Bartholomew's expert skills - wonderful work!”
“I felt that I had his undivided attention - he was willing to spend as much time as was needed to answer my questions and make me feel comfortable.

“I had two reconstructive surgeries on my legs following severe infection from an adverse reaction to medication. Dr Bartholomew took on my case when others would not. Two months in the hospital, two surgeries and great followup all contributed to a excellent result. I was lucky to have Dr Bartholomew in my corner and highly recommend him.”

I have so much confidence and I am in love with how light I feel! Dr. Bartholomew is very professional and courteous and he knows exactly what he is doing!”
A Mommy Makeover usually addresses the abdomen (tummy tuck and liposuction), butt (buttock augmentation, fat grafting), thighs (thigh lift), and breasts (breast lift, breast reduction, breast augmentation). Handling these areas all at once can save time, funds and consolidate your recovery period into one as opposed to spreading it over multiple procedures. Discuss your options with Dr. Bartholomew and see what might be best for you.
Large breasts can lead to physical discomfort and self-consciousness. Excessive weight can create pressure on one’s back and neck.

Consult Dr. Samuel Bartholomew Plastic Surgery today to find out if you’re a candidate for this procedure.
Over time gravity and/or pregnancy can take their toll on one’s chest. It is not uncommon to experience sagging or enlarged areolas as our bodies change. Shape and firmness diminish and skin loses elasticity. A Breast Lift can be done to tone and reshape your breasts into an aesthetic and desirable form. A Breast Lift can be combined with Breast Implants to enhance the volume and shape of the breasts. Ask about our procedure for Breast Lift at Dr. Samuel Bartholomew Plastic surgery in Portland Oregon.
Whether for medical reasons or patient desire, exchange of previously placed breast implants may be called for at some point in time. The need for supplementary breast procedures is not uncommon as breast implants are not considered permanent. Aesthetic results being a primary concern, exchange of breast implants can provide a rejuvenated feel and appearance to one’s chest. Dr. Bartholomew may recommend a breast lift or different size implant with this exchange. Schedule a consultation to discuss your options.
Gynecomastia, colloquially known as “man boobs”, is the enlargement of male breasts caused by excessive pectoral fat tissue. After a male breast reduction, one can expect an improved masculine chest contour. Gynecomastia is a Greek word meaning female-like breasts. Affecting roughly 1 in 5 men, this condition can cause diminished esteem and make one feel self-conscious about their body. A male breast reduction procedure can resolve pectoral appearance and restore self confidence in a man’s appearance.
