Many people across the country chose to undergo body contouring surgeries, such as liposuction, to kick off the New Year with the body that they’ve been working toward. After the procedure, you cannot give up all of the dieting and exercising for a life of streaming Netflix on your sofa for hours with a fistful of your favorite chips. Now that you have the body you want doesn’t mean that the healthy lifestyle should come to an end.
If you missed our Meet the Doctors seminar last week, here’s your chance to travel back in time (kind of). Reviance was kind enough to share these photos with us…take a look and let us know what you think!

Do we have exciting news to share with you! Just yesterday, we received an extremely generous $70,000 grant from the Associated General Contractors of America to fund construction of a new medical clinic in Jacmel, Haiti.
For those of you who don’t know, I visited Haiti in 2012 and spent some time working in a medical clinic for Restoration Ministries. This “clinic” was basically a house with no water or electricity.
I saw many children with life-threatening hernias that could be easily repaired in an operating room. I knew at that point that if I didn’t do something, these children would die of bowel gangrene.
I spent the next six months working toward building a clinic with an operating room in Jacmel, Haiti. Several schools and organizations have joined in the design and construction of this clinic, including Oregon State University, University of Portland, University of Oregon, Waterleaf Architecture, KPFF Engineering and many more. The designs are now complete. We are hoping to start building within a few months with the goal of opening the clinic by fall 2014.
Building this clinic has been a dream and I am so excited that it is now becoming a reality. We still have lots of fundraising to do, but we are completely encouraged and humbled by this start.
Thanks to all of you who have supported this project so far. Stay tuned here and on our Facebook page for more updates to come!

Admit it: you hate seeing the extra bulge around your middle. Regardless of how many laps you’ve swam, miles you’ve run, or tempting foods you’ve avoided, you still see the “muffin top” over the top of your jeans. Moms especially know how frustrating it can be to regain a flat pre-pregnancy stomach. During pregnancy, the abdominal wall stretches a considerable amount and after giving birth, it’s common for a “pot belly” appearance to remain. In some cases, weakened abdominal muscles contribute to the flabby shape of your abdomen, which can also be corrected with a tummy tuck.
During the holidays, we spend so much time decorating our house so that it looks perfect for the season, but when it comes to our own looks, it is normal to feel self-conscious about age or any number of reasons when around family and friends that haven’t been seen since the last holiday season.
To help you feel more comfortable at your next big holiday party, here are three popular non-surgical treatments to help defeat a wide range of problems.
