Dr. Mark Petroff, Petroff Center Plastic Surgery & Medi-SpaDoes the appearance or function of your nose bother you?

Rhinoplasty is the medical term for any surgery regarding the nose or nasal structure. Most rhinoplasties I do are cosmetic, but other patients want the procedure because they have difficulties breathing, or have had an injury or accident affecting the nose.

The best candidates for rhinoplasty are at least 15 years old with a face that’s fully grown, are generally healthy and do not smoke. It’s important that the individual wants the surgery for personal reasons — rather than pressure from others — and has realistic goals for the procedure.

I will do a thorough evaluation of your nasal structure, medical history and overall health to determine whether the procedure is safe for you and meets your goals.

Rhinoplasty is performed in our state-of-the-art surgery center under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation. There are two techniques used: a closed procedure, in which incisions are made within the nostrils; and an open procedure, in which an incision is made across the tissue between the nostrils.

Afterward, you can expect some bruising, soreness, and swelling for a week or so after your surgery. A nasal splint is used for a seven days to help your nose maintain its new shape.

Most patients are able to return to school or work 7-10 days following their procedure. Results are visible upon splint removal, however it may take months before you see the final result of your surgery.

Dr. Jonathan Wisniewski, EVCOTEmergency Veterinary Clinic of Tualatin (EVCOT) is on the move to a new and better facility in Tualatin.

On June 21 at 8 a.m., our current location will close and our new location will open the same day at 5 p.m., when our normal business hours will resume.

The address of the new location is:

8250 S.W. Tonka St.

Tualatin, OR 97062

The new facility will have a consultation and grieving room; an upgraded laboratory and pharmacy; separate cat and dog wards to reduce your pet’s anxiety; an additional procedure room; more cage and kennel space; and our own parking lot.

We will have a new isolation wing with two separate isolation wards (to prevent cross-contamination of different infectious diseases such as influenza and parvovirus). The isolation wing will have a separate entrance, pet walking area and individual examination room.

In the event your pet needs emergency care, EVCOT’s staff is ready, with a bigger and better facility that’s easier to find than our old location.

On June 30, look for this column to prepare for July Fourth. I’ll discuss preventive measures to keep your pet calm while fireworks explode in your area.

Justin Harnish, Harnish PropertiesQ: What's your best advice for first-time homebuyers?

A: Be prepared. Have your finances and lender in order so you are ready to “strike,” as the first-time homebuyer market (typically price-driven) is highly competitive.

Q: What does a Buyer’s Agent do?

A: A good broker has their finger on the pulse of the active market and shadow market. A broker is a guide to getting the right deal done and helps to remove the emotion from the transaction. Stick to business, it’s not worth overpaying no matter how hot the market is!

Q: Does it cost money to have a Broker’s help? What is a Buyer’s Agent?

A: It does not cost any additional money and in fact, a good broker will save you money. A Buyer's Agent represents the sole interests of the Buyer.

Q: Can't I just find homes for myself online?

A: One can certainly identify homes of interest online, as 98 percent of homebuyers begin on the internet, but it’s best to engage a Buyer’s Agent to represents your interests.

Q: How long does it take to buy a home and why?

A: In this market it can take a while; buyers need to be prepared to be patient and have their hearts broken due to the low inventory and competitive environment. The typical closing time from an accepted offer to close of escrow is 45-60 days. It can take quite a while to get an appraisal done due the high volume of transactions today.

Dr. Branen, Lake Grove DentalDental implants are used to replace single or multiple missing teeth and have been in use since the 1970s.

While techniques and designs have improved steadily with time, dental implants have the highest success rate of any implanted surgical device.

When patients lose teeth, the bone that supports those teeth is gradually lost. The jawbone loses its shape and density and, eventually, the facial skeleton changes, thereby changing the soft tissue structures like gum tissues, cheeks and lips.

Like the root of a tooth, an implant is secured in the jaw bone. Made of titanium, it is strong, lightweight and biocompatible so the body will not reject it.

After it has healed in place, a crown, bridge or denture can be attached. Dental implants are wonderful because they stabilize bone and prevent the loss that causes that sunken-face look.

Patients can eat, chew, smile, talk and look completely natural.

One of the first questions patients have about implants is the cost. Initially they are more costly, but since they last so much longer than traditional bridgework, they end up being more cost effective.

Dr. Branen has received extensive training and continues to work with one of the leading oral surgeon instructors in the Pacific Northwest.

Most implants are done in office with local anesthesia, just the same as a routine dental filling. To answer more questions on this or any dental concerns, call Lake Grove Dental or visit our website today.

Stephen Andrews, The Bank of OswegoIt’s graduation season, and plenty of students will face financial realities for the first time.

While it’s challenging to juggle the new responsibilities of college or a career, it’s important for young adults to incorporate practical financial practices into their daily lives.

The Bank of Oswego offers the following advice to young adults:

1. Set up and follow a budget that includes paying off a credit card balance. “Maxing out,” or charging up to your card’s credit limit, can make sticking to your budget more difficult and negatively affect your credit score.

2. Pay your bills on time — every time. Whenever your budget permits, pay more than the minimum payment to pay off the balance faster and save on finance charges.

3. Keep all of your financial account information confidential. Do not share your PIN, debit or credit cards and access to your bank accounts. Never give out such information over the phone or online, unless you initiated the contact and know who you’re dealing with.

4. Routinely access your account information online to track your spending and to quickly spot fraudulent transactions. If you see a transaction that is not yours or an error on your account, notify your card issuer immediately.

5. When making online transactions, whether to purchase products or pay bills, be sure the site is secure. Don’t let others watch you enter your card number, PIN or bank account number.

Mike Keeler, Vic's AutomotiveQ: I’m planning on buying a used car, but I don’t want to buy a lemon. What do you recommend?

A: All used cars need to be professionally inspected by a certified shop. This is called a pre-purchase inspection, or PPI. The only exception I can think of is a dealership that sells pre-certified used cars. If a seller will not agree to a pre-purchase inspection, that’s a sign that the seller is hiding something. Walk away.

Q: What is included in a pre-purchase car inspection?

A: The car needs to be put up in the air. Ninety percent of information we get comes from the brakes, suspension, exhaust and tires. We will also scan a car’s computer system to see if it’s in readiness mode or has been altered (it has to be in readiness mode to pass DEQ). We do a long road test.

Q: How long does it take and how much does it cost?

A: It takes about two hours. We are thorough but efficient.

A pre-purchase inspection costs $100 to $150. In addition to the inspection, we’ll give a list any problems with the car and the estimated cost to fix them, in order of importance. That way, the buyer will know what he’s getting into, perhaps renegotiate the price, decide not to buy, or that the cost of the car and the repairs is fair and within budget.

Mike Hall, Hasson Company RealtorsDogs, cats, chickens — you name it, we love our pets! But for pet parents selling a home, there’s extra work if you want to sell for top dollar. 

Starting with the biggie: While sellers may not notice their own pet’s odors, buyers surely will.  Buyer allergies, or even sensitivity to smells in general, might shrink your pool of buyers and hamper your sale. Your Realtor should give frank advice, and you may ask a trusted friend who doesn't visit often to come over and give their honest input.  

Thorough cleaning, preferably by a pro, should include not only the visible pet hair and dander, but give special attention to furniture, rugs and pet bedding.  Litter boxes should be removed to a garage or remote area if possible.  Have your ductwork professionally cleaned; the hair hiding in there blows into every room and may set off your buyer’s sneeze alarm.  When you think you're ready, have your agent and friend revisit and check!

Take time and simply observe wherever pets have left their mark: screen doors, lawn spots, scratches and stains.  All are usually easy fixes.  

Finally, arrange to have Fido and Fifi off-site during showings. You want visitors to relax and visualize living there.  Some buyers and agents may spend less time in your home, and not see that vision, if their attention is on your pet.

Dr. Nancy Salisbury, DrNGYNIt’s often said to new mothers, “You are glowing!”

But what loved ones may not know is that behind the glow, there can be uncomfortable medical conditions some mothers suffer after childbirth.

New moms may keep their complaints to themselves, not knowing how their bodies should feel after giving birth. They may be too embarrassed to discuss such issues with other mothers, family members or a doctor. Their bodies have undergone a profound change during the process and it can be overwhelming.

In my practice, no question is too small. No topic is off limits. I’m here to make women comfortable enough to ask any question and get straightforward advice on solutions.

Some of the issues that may arise after childbirth are vaginal laxity, stress incontinence, chronic constipation and weakening of the pelvic floor. Women may also be concerned about the appearance of vulvar structures, as well as pain during lovemaking due to poorly healed episiotomy, laceration, or hormonal changes of nursing.

Stress incontinence is urinary leakage that is caused by any form of straining such as running, sneezing or laughing. I have performed hundreds of minimally invasive procedures called TVT, in which I place a vaginal “tape” to correct leaky bladder.

As an experienced vaginal surgeon, I’m proficient at surgical correction of female pelvic relaxation including cystocele (dropped bladder), rectocele (herniation of rectum in vagina), and uterine prolapse. I also pay special attention to the perineum so it looks and feels as it once did before the birth.

I understand the importance of a healthy sex life for women and their partners. There are treatments available that can make sex enjoyable again and bring back your inner glow. Yes, taking care of the baby is important, but so are you.

EMERGENCY VETERINARY CARE OF TUALATIN - Jonathan Wisniewski, DVMHeat prostration (or as it’s more commonly known, heat stroke) is a serious medical condition that can cause vomiting, blood clotting, organ failure and even death in dogs and humans alike.

In canines, heat prostration can be caused by a mix of external and internal factors. Keeping a pet in an enclosed space, exposing them to high temperatures or humidity and limiting their access to water all increase the likelihood of heat stroke.

There are also internal risk factors, including certain medications, hormonal imbalances, lack of exercise, fever, or the ingestion of macadamia nuts or hops.

Warning signs of heat stroke include dullness, weakness, wobbly behavior, collapsing, convulsions — even coma.

If you think your dog may be suffering from heat prostration, treat it like an emergency. The best thing you can do is lower the dog’s body temperature immediately, either by moving it to a cooler area or by wrapping it in a cool, wet towel. Then transport your animal to the nearest veterinary hospital.

Depending on the severity of the emergency, a veterinarian may insert a breathing tube or IV to provide supplemental electrolytes.

Most animals require a few days of intensive monitoring to ensure a complete recovery. Delayed symptoms can develop three to five days after an apparent recovery, including kidney failure, liver failure and sepsis.

Know the warning signs. Never trap a dog in a hot, enclosed space (like a locked car) for prolonged periods of time.

HARNISH PROPERTIES - Justin HarnishQ: We plan to sell our house soon. What are the essentials to get a home ready to show and to sell at top dollar?

A: When preparing a home for market, it’s imperative that a seller think of the home being in competition with other “products” in the relevant market place.

Even in the current seller’s market, with low inventory of available homes and faster-than-usual sales, you want your home to make a strong impression and to command top dollar against competitors.

Q: In your view, what are the essentials to give a home dazzling curb appeal?

A: The home must be show-ready and sale-ready at a moment’s notice. This means that the broker and the seller must cooperate prior to market in the preparation by decluttering, staging, exterior and interior cleanup and maintenance checkups.

Q: Will a good broker have resources to suggest, such as landscapers, painters, handypersons, sewer-scopers and oil-tank removers?

A: Your home is dynamic and the systems must be in top shape. They will be inspected upon purchase, so they must be in order. A seasoned broker will have a list of trusted vendors to help get the home prepared for market and complete deferred maintenance, all of which is typically not easy!

Q: How important is home staging?

A: Very important! Statistics show that a properly prepared and staged home will sell 88 percent faster.

DRNGYN - Dr. Nancy SalisburyFor women experiencing vaginal dryness and discomfort, there are plenty of products and treatments that can help. Make sure what you’re using is safe. Also, try them out and find out what works best for you and your partner.

The North American Menopause Society offers the following solutions.

Lubricants can be water-based, silicone-based or oil-based:

· Water-based products include Astroglide and Femglide. YES is an organic, water-based lubricant free of additives.

· Silicone-based products include ID Millennium, Pink and Pjur.

· Avoid oil-based products such as mineral oil, petroleum jelly and baby oil, which can cause irritation and latex condom breakage.

Vaginal moisturizers, unlike lubricants, are absorbed into the skin and mimic natural secretions. Moisturizers are more long-term, lasting up to four days. Replens is available over the counter.

Low-dose vaginal estrogen therapy acts to reverse the thinning and dryness of tissues. It comes in several forms, including creams, low-dose vaginal rings, and a tablet called Vagifem.

Those who choose not to use hormones at all need an alternative.

MonaLisa Touch, a recently introduced outpatient vaginal laser treatment, is designed to relieve sexual discomfort due to vaginal dryness after menopause or cancer surgery.

My practice, DrNGYN, is the only clinic offering the treatment in the Portland area. MonaLisa Touch is an office-based, noninvasive treatment that is FDA-approved. The procedure takes 5 minutes, women feel no pain and more than 95 percent of patients are satisfied.

VIC'S AUTO CENTER - Mike KeelerWhile it’s true that the price of gas at the pump has dropped considerably, that’s no reason to waste it.

With Earth Day just a week in the rear-view mirror, it’s worth considering the many ways we can improve fuel economy and be as energy-efficient as possible.

Proper vehicle maintenance is a must. Make sure that the air and fuel and air filters are serviced regularly, once or twice a year. Check engine performance; if it’s running efficiently, your gas mileage will improve an average of 4 percent. Fixing a faulty oxygen sensor can improve mileage as much as 40 percent.

Get your tire pressure checked. Tires lose on average a lb. of pressure per month, or 12 lbs. annually. If you don’t inflate them regularly, your fuel economy will be compromised. Properly inflated tires improve gas mileage up to 3.3 percent.

Drive smoothly, avoiding jackrabbit starts and hard-brake stops. Keep a steady pace, avoid traffic jams, and use cruise control when on the highway.

Empty your trunk occasionally, which may sound off, but some people use it as extra storage. There might be 400 lbs. of stuff back there, weighing down your vehicle.

If you have a roof rack, remove it when not in use to cut down on drag.

Use top-tier fuel, which is certified as gas that has been qualified to meet a certain standard. Chevron, Texaco, Shell and Costco carry top-tier fuel in all the gas.
